K900 is being discontinued in the USA.
Will the Genesis G90 be next?
Hyundai had promised separate dealerships
Never happened. KIA and Hyundai don't know how to treat luxury car customers
KIA didn't stock K900's so they could sell them
K900 Pilot and promethus7 like this.

Wouldn't surprise me if Genesis killed all their sedans, actually, like Buick and Lincoln. I hate the trend, but apparently it's only SUVs that are selling and I admit any company has to listen to its customers.


I'm intending to keep my K as long as it'll run, with fingers crossed.

I'm saddened by the discontinuation but agree w/ most here that the sales figures simply don't justify keeping the model afloat in N America.

Eventually the car, like every other make/model, will age to a point where one can't justify expensive repairs or waiting months for parts. There may be a medium somewhere in between (i.e. not every moving part has to be replaced w/ factory OEM).

So long as it doesn't affect how the car drives, I'm willing to accept loss of function (e.g. if one window regulator goes out and the only feasible way out is to pay $2k and wait 3 months; I'll see if it can be permanently affixed to the up position...).

Until that time, I shall continue to enjoy it.

Just for the heck of it, attaching a pic of my beloved K900.
