Hyundai Genesis owners have reported a total of 1,301 problems for their cars built in the 11 model years listed in the chart below. The chart shows the number of problems reported across all service years for each given model year of the Hyundai Genesis. The 2009 Hyundai Genesis cars have the most problems reported (284 problems).
The following chart shows the 23 most common problems for Hyundai Genesis cars. The number one most common problem is related to the vehicle's service brakes, hydraulic (311 problems). The second most common problem is related to the vehicle's engine and engine cooling (150 problems).
|Problem Category||Number of Problems|
|Engine And Engine Cooling|
|Vehicle Speed Control|
|Other Fuel System|
|Electronic Stability Control|
|Gasoline Fuel System|
|Unknown Or Other|
|Traction Control System|
It would not be fair to compare the Hyundai Genesis of an older model year to newer model years since older vehicles have been in service longer and thus are expected to have more problems. In order to compare the reliability across Genesis model years, we use the PPMY index which is defined as the problems reported per thousand vehicles per Year. A smaller PPMY index indicates greater reliability of the given model year cars.
PPMY = P / S / Y * 1000,
where P = total problems reported during the life of a Hyundai Genesis model year; S = total units sold of the model year; Y = years since the debut of the model year (the age of the vehicle).
The results are shown in Table 3.
Another way to measure the reliability across the model years of the Hyundai Genesis is to use the total number of problems reported during the vehicle's first year in service, as shown in the Table 4.
