Slow engine response in Genesis

Asked by Roy McDowall

I can't believe you and all the other testers did not pick up the fault with a slow stumble, the throttle response at light to medium acceleration on the Hyundai Genesis. I have had Hyundai head office road test my vehicle and declare it's normal. I love the car but it's driving me around the bend as, when cruising at any speed, I go to accelerate and very little happens.

In many cars today the engine management settings are biased to economy and low emissions and this is what makes them slow to respond. You should try the Sport mode in your Genesis as I'm certain that will give you the response you crave.
