    Genesis Introduces Spectrum "All-Inclusive" leasing

      ...fully covered everything for 3 years.

    Genesis has introduced Spectrum all-inclusive leasing.  While not a subscription service like Volvo's Care or Book by Cadillac , Spectrum does include insurance and all maintenance for 3 years.   Subscription leasing services main draw is the ability of the leasee to switch vehicles at some point during the lease.

    Genesis Spectrum covers the following:

    • 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary scheduled maintenance
    • 3 years/36,000 miles complimentary Service Valet
    • 3 years of complimentary Genesis Connected Services, including Enhanced Roadside Assistance, Destination Search powered by Voice and Remote Start with climate control
    • 3 years of complimentary SiriusXM® Travel Link (Data Services)
    • 3 years of complimentary Annual Multimedia and Navigation Updates
    • Up to $1,525 allowance for excess wear and use, excess mileage, and disposition fee for returning Genesis Finance customers

    Genesis is striking a balance between the car subscription services, which have questionable financial viability, and traditional basic leasing.  Genesis Spectrum will be available first in Florida and then roll out to select markets nationwide.

    This makes far more sense for people who do not want to bother with getting insurance. Just lease from the OEM auto company with all service and insurance included. To me this has far more value than the subscription services.

    It makes it easier to deduct on taxes as well.

    One question: why only three years?  Should they not have a five-year option too?

    I think 3 years is the most popular lease option. There isn't a lot of 5-year leasing out there.

    This makes sense.  I could see this becoming popular... I know part of the reason my parents tried their first lease 3 years ago is because I enticed them with the idea of owning one car, and always having one car completely new, covered bumper-to-bumper, and the only thing they really have to do is get it inspected and have oil changes.

    Now Genesis will do all of that with Concierge pickup too.

    I honestly wish I had that service because the dealer, even with an appointment, is horribly slow. I end up sitting there for 2-3 hours for an oil change.  And I tried to get it done at Pep Boys and they don't carry the "exotic" and it has to be preordered, which I wish they would tell you when you make the appointment.

    It's a nice thing I have with my Buick.

    I find w/ my dealer it's a couple hours minimum with an appointment.  I usually take my laptop and sit in the lounge and work.   Sitting in a doctor's office waiting room working now.

    I wonder what sort of insurance coverage it will provide.  Is this state minimum coverage?  Or will it be a no deductible, million dollar liability type of policy?

    From the Press Release, I know it doesn't say much.

    The auto insurance policy from Metlife Auto and Home includes competitive coverage with $500 deductible adding to the customers’ confidence that their Genesis vehicles are fully protected.

    it says you can switch vehicles but i doubt anyone leasing the G70 would want to switch to the others.......ever.....

    I don't see that anywhere in the press release. I'll update the article if I'm wrong... but... not seeing it.

    You're right, my bad.  I read that originally so fast, the Genesis program is not a subscription service.

    And I doubt anyone who wants a G70 would want to stoop to either of the other two Genesi.

    • WOW, that is crazy, wonder what happened the first time as that was a hard bounce. Need a full inspection on that plane after that hit.
    • Usually one does not pull out a desktop HD to transport it but packs and moves the whole desktop computer. If you are wanting to remove the HD to transport it, you need to ensure it is in an Anti-static bag to prevent electrical discharge that can scramble the data in worse case scenario. Depending on size HD can weight from just a couple of OZ to 1lb.  Question for you, are you just thinking of putting these HD into a new computer or just taking them over separate from the existing desktop system and installing them back in again? If your just thinking of transporting the desktop I would recommend keeping the drive in the desktop and packing the whole unit securely in a box with packing material for protection. If your wanting the data on the drives, I would recommend buying a proper USB drive, copy all the data off the drives and then you can wipe the drives and donate the computers to Goodwill for a tax write off.
    • The site clean-ups on C&G have been nice and look cleaner. In the process, it appears they even purged that one warning point I got for some heavy handed arguing with ocnblu back in 2009.
    • This was on my homepage.   This is possibly the weirdest go-around I've seen on video.  It was Lufthansa's big bird (latest version) at LAX.  (Leave the sound on) https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/moment-lufthansa-plane-s-touch-and-go-landing-caught-on-live-stream/vi-AA1nysOo?ocid=socialshare I was on one major go-around about 20 years and, it too, was on an older Lufthansa 747 going from Munich to SFO to connect up to Portland. He was still some 200 feet off the ground when he announced it, the engines started purring strongly, the plane started climbing, and the go around from my window showed San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, then on down south next to Stanford, and then back up over San Francisco Bay to land.
    • Tech help needed prior to going in to Office Depot or other store to inquire ... or conducting research and spinning my wheels: I have 2 HP Pavilion desktops ... one is circa 2019 and the other is circa 2009, and it still works.  They are boxed up. Questions: 1.  If I needed to get hard drive carrying cases, how does one go about sizing the one they should buy? 2. I have never seen one before, but I'm assuming the construction of the case is thick and tough enough to protect the hard drive, yes? 3.  How much do hard drives in typical household HP Pavilions weigh and are they easy to remove so they can be transported? THANK YOU!
