Midsize Premium Car: Hyundai Genesis


Yet another Hyundai vehicle leading its segment was the Genesis sedan for the Midsize Premium Car class. Coming in second place was the Lincoln MKS, while the Lexus GS and the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class tied for third place. The luxury sedan comes standard with a 3.8-liter V6 with 333 hp and an eight-speed automatic transmission that returns 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Also available is a more powerful 5.0-liter V8 with 429 hp that gets 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

    From my past observation, J.D. Power is a very dubious and manipulative auto research company. It seems any automaker can pay the company for better publicity in a timely J.D. Power study report. Yeah, J.D. Power uses data from consumers, but how does it get the data, how does it process the data, and is its data subject to public auditing ? No one knows, except J. D. Power itself , because J.D. Power owns and operates its Secret Magic Black Data Box Machine in the name of scientific data-based research.

    In general, consumer report in auto quality publishing is way more objective and trustworthy

    Both are superficial representations of actual vehicle quality.

    Actually no, Consumer Reports is actually reports from consumers and can not be bought ….

    Well you are talking about superficial representation, which I think is as far as a data-based study/report can go, but I’m here talking about Hoax.
