2011 Hyundai Equus Signature 4.6 liter V-8 from North America
Best car by far that we have ever owned
We don't drive it often, and if left in the garage not driven for 10 days or so, have had many battery failures. This is a 'high feature' car and thus causes more than normal drainage to the battery.
There have been no other service issues!
This is by far the finest car that we have owned. I tell friends that it is 95% of a Mercedes S class for about 60% of the price. This is the first year for the Equus in the US and it has a 4.6 liter engine rated at 389 HP. It has a 6 speed automatic. Later models went to a 5 liter with 8 speed.
All materials, fit and finish are superb. Ride is very well controlled. Acceleration is excellent. Rear and rear side windows have power shades. Sunroof. Reclining back seats.
The car is black with black premium leather. We added tinted windows. There are no options offered by Hyundai as the car has all options as delivered.
This was the owner/dealer's personal car with 1620 miles on it when purchased.
We have had three replacement batteries, all under warranty. I believe that the latest battery may be superior to the previous ones as we have not experienced any more 'dead battery' issues in the past year.
My wife's dilemma at this time is that there is nothing currently made that she would 'trade' for. We are disappointed that the 2017 model is now the Genesis G90
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
