2022 Genesis G80 Problems and Top Complaints – Is Your Car A Lemon?

Electrical systems & structural issues among the top complaints from vehicle owners

The 2022 Genesis G80 is the type of car people dream about when looking for a luxury model. After all, the automaker boasts of the beauty, performance and features by stating it is “creating tomorrow, today.” However, the only thing that customers are seeing in the future is a bunch of trips to the service center because of the defective electrical system and poorly-built structure.

Problems with the Electrical System

If a company is going to charge top dollar for a luxury automobile, it should be built to the highest standards possible, but Genesis doesn’t understand that.

Among the complaints in this KBB review, the electrical system takes a big shot. “Build is disappointing as many interior plastic parts don’t fit together well, the engine is power4ful but shakes and shudders like a tractor, gets worse gas mileage than my prior 3.8L G80 and the emergency braking system just plain doesn’t work. The lane control feature is erratic and the car feels unsafe to drive when it is engaged.’

The complaint goes on to say: “The worst part is that the factory support team is unable to properly support the vehicle due to the incompetence of ALL the dealer service teams and the manufacturer has refused to fix issues claiming everything is ‘normal.’ REALLY!!!! They are doing this as a way to work around the lemon law in my state. This has a been a very stressful experience and I warn anyone considering purchasing a G80 that if it can happen to me as a 3d time loyal Genesis customer it can happen to you.”

It would be safe to assume that this customer is going to jump ship and move away from Genesis vehicles in the future, and no one could blame them. This car seems to get just about everything wrong, despite customers making it very clear what they want. Maybe Genesis should go back to focus groups and then take those notes to make changes. Maybe the company is worried about that step, realizing that it would have to revamp the entire design and start over. It’s time to look into “tomorrow” and actually create the vehicle that people want today.

Problems with the Vehicle Structure

The complaints only further continue when talking about how the 2022 Genesis G80 was built. Genesis isn’t winning any points in this department either.

Here’s another KBB review to read. “The owner’s manual leaves a lot to be desired. It is hard to find explanations of the numerous features. For example, I have two buttons, cryptically labeled, on the overhead panel where the dome light and sunroof controls reside. I cannot find the difference between the two buttons in the owner’s manual. Both light the dome light but I cannot figure out why there are two buttons for the light. That is just an example – the manual must have been translated from Korean, and poorly at that.”

It’s possible that the problem has to do with the level of care going into the build. If the same people are designing Genesis and Hyundai vehicles, it’s clear where the breakdown is. Maybe the 2022 Genesis G80 should contain the same price tag as the Hyundai lineup. If so, there would probably be far fewer complaints worth talking about.
