Powertrain & structural issues are among the top complaints from vehicle owners

When it comes to luxury car models, few are able to turn heads as the 2022 Genesis GV70. After all, the automaker says that this vehicle can “make way for want.” Yet, customers want a lot more, especially a powertrain that’s not defective and a structure that holds up for the price that was paid.

Problems with the Powertrain

Aside from the motor, the powertrain in this luxury automobile must be top-notch for a smooth ride, but it’s not.

One NHTSA complaint says, “This car had a lack of power since inception. The transmission had a horrible grinding sound during the upshift and down shifting of the transmission. Hyundai Corporation did replace the transmission but the grinding sound is not completely gone. The check engine light is currently on and has appeared for the second time with less than 6K on the odometer. I have scheduled another appointment to take it in on 02/14/2022.”

For now, Hyundai Motor isn’t saying anything about powertrain issues. However, there are multiple complaints showing up online about the defects. In this case, the tagline certainly fit because customers have more wants created after driving this lemon.

Problems with the Vehicle Structure

There’s nothing minimal about the price of the GV70. For this cost, everyone expects that the vehicle will be made of the utmost quality, but that’s not the case at all.

Just read this Edmunds review. “Be aware that this GV70 is not the car that others are raving about. The gas mileage is horrendous. Mine is getting 17 mpg on premium fuel. The fit and finish is terrible, and I have noted scratches on the rims and the trim on my car. The ride is mediocre at best, and the auto stop us very annoying. Thankfully, it can be turned off. It may look a little like a Porsche Macan, but it is NO Macan. As the say, looks can be very deceiving. I’d advise people to avoid this car and go for a BMW X3 or Audi Q5. Those are real luxury cars! This is a Korean wannabe.”

Aside from these complaints, there’s a serious defect that has led to a recall. NHTSA Campaign Number 21V796000 says that the driver or passenger seat belt pretensioner can explode when it is deployed. Considering this is needed when an accident occurs, occupants are in more danger than they can recognize. Plus, when the seat belt pretensioner explodes, metal fragments can shoot out of the assembly, thereby further causing injury to people within the vehicle. With this defect in mind, the 2022 Genesis GV70 is acting like a death trap on wheels. Who could want more?
