With thousands of miles on the G70's giving us a real chance to assess reliability from numerous owners, it seems this Genesis is a real winner. I know they have been topping the quality studies and the G70 should be another reason why that continues! I have however noticed some talk about potential trouble spots and actual problems reported, like warped rotors, hard shifting, paint quality and some others.

While these won't exactly impact reliability, it does put an extra spot light on how G70's will hold up over the long-term and what we might have to look out for.
Should we be concerned about anything so far? Are there issues being experienced currently that have the potential to escalate? Even in the Kia Stinger?

Here's a general list of things to look for in any car:
  • Engine Minor: Accessory belts and pulleys, engine computer, engine mounts, engine knock or ping, oil leaks.
  • Engine Major: Engine rebuild or replacement, cylinder head, head gasket, turbo or supercharger, timing chain or timing belt.
  • Transmission Minor: Gear selector or linkage, leaks, transmission computer, transmission sensor or solenoid, clutch adjustment, rough shifting, slipping transmission.
  • Fuel System: Check engine light, sensors (includes O2 or oxygen sensor), emission control devices (includes EGR), engine computer, engine computer, fuel cap, fuel gauge/sender, fuel injection system, fuel pump, fuel leaks, stalling or hesitation.
  • Electric System: Alternator, starter, hybrid battery and related systems, regular battery, battery cables, engine harness, coil, ignition switch, electronic ignition, distributor or rotor failure, spark plugs and wires failure.
  • In-car Electronics: CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.
  • Climate System: Blower (fan) motor, A/C compressor, condenser, evaporator, heater system, automatic climate control, refrigerant leakage, electrical failure.
  • Paint/Trim: Paint (fading, chalking, cracking, or peeling), loose interior and exterior trim or moldings, rust.
  • Transmission Major: Transmission rebuild or replacement, torque converter, clutch replacement.
  • Body Hardware: Power or manual windows, locks and latches, tailgate, hatch or trunk, doors or sliding doors, mirrors, seat controls, safety belts, sunroof, convertible top.
  • Suspension: Shocks or struts, ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings, alignment, steering linkage (includes rack and pinion), power steering (pumps and hoses, leaks), wheel balance, springs or torsion bars, bushings, electronic or air suspension.
  • Power Equipment: Cruise control, clock, warning lights, body control module, keyless entry, wiper motor or washer, tire pressure monitor, interior or exterior lights, horn, gauges, 12V power plug, remote engine start, alarm or security system
  • Engine Cooling: Radiator, cooling fan, antifreeze leaks, water pump, thermostat, overheating.
  • Brakes: Antilock system (ABS), parking brake, master cylinder, calipers, rotors, pulsation or vibration, squeaking, brake failure or wear.
  • Exhaust: Muffler, pipes, catalytic converter, exhaust manifold, leaks.
  • Body Integrity: Squeaks, rattles, wind noises, loose or cracked seals and/or weather-stripping, air and water leaks.
  • Drive System: Driveshaft or axle, CV joint, differential, transfer case, 4WD/AWD components, driveline vibration, traction control, electronic stability control (ESC), electrical failure.
