Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Problems

No Sound from Speakers

Hyundai Genesis 3.8 models equipped with navigation units may suddenly stop playing audio from all speakers. This includes sound from CD players, radio, navigation, satellite radio, and telephone calls. All other features may still function properly.

This fault requires no part replacement, and is a software glitch that can be rectified by a 'hard reset'.

To perform the hard reset, simply disconnect the vehicles negative battery terminal, wait 15 minutes, and reconnect the negative battery terminal.

Rough idle or hard start when cold

A rough idle or hard starting condition may develop, most noticeable when the engine is cold, with fault code P161B stored in the powertrain control module (PCM). Our technicians tell us that a PCM software upgrade is available to correct this concern.

Whine type noise from power steering

A whine type noise may be noted from the power steering pump. This can be caused by a clogged reservoir which can aerate the power steering fluid. Cleaning the reservoir screen will restore proper fluid flow, reducing the noise.

The seal for the wiper motor cover may fail, causing moisture to get inside and corrode the circuit board. This would result in failure of the wiper motor. Dealers will replace the wiper motor cover and seal free of charge to resolve the concern.

Tires Have Sidewall Cracks

The original equipment tires, Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 model, may develop sidewall cracks and as a result leak air and fail. Dealers will replace the factory tires with tires of another brand free of charge to resolve the concern.

Hyundai Genesis 3.8 Reviews

My 2012 Genesis 3.8 sedan is by far the best vehicle I have owned, I opted for the Technology package. This car is a dream to drive, the optional (LDWS) lane departure warning system is useless, it is suppossed to warn you if you drift into other lanes but it only gives a LOW beep which you can't hear if you have the radio on. The Smart Cruise is a very nice feature. The Lexicon stereo is the B...
I HAVE THE TECH SETUP. THIS CAR IS A WONDER OF TECHNOLOGY.A BIG BANG FOR A GOOD PRICE. THE ONLY COMPLAINT I HAD WAS WITH THE ORIGINAL TIRES.THE RIDE WAS VERY HARD. I HAVE REPLACED THEM WITH UPGRADED TIRES THIS SOLVED THAT PROBLEM
