Safety reviews for the Genesis GV80 are good, with the NHTSA awarding full marks overall and for side crash tests. Both frontal crash and rollover evaluations scored four stars out of five. The IIHS hasn't conducted any tests on the SUV, but the G80 with which it shares a platform scored top marks and earned a Top Safety Pick+ award in 2022.

There were no recalls issued for 2023 at the time of writing , and 2022 models were also given a clean bill of health. In its launch year, the GV80 was subjected to two recalls for a potential leak on the high-pressure fuel tube and explosive seat belt pretensioners. These issues have since been resolved, and J.D. Power ranks the GV80 at 82 out of 100 for quality and reliability.
Should anything go wrong, Genesis offers impressive coverage. You get a limited warranty for five years/60,000 miles, a powertrain warranty for 10 years/100,000 miles, and complimentary scheduled maintenance for three years/36,000 miles. Roadside assistance is also offered for the first five years, along with packages that offer standard valet services when performing maintenance and an anti-perforation promise. Nobody else in the industry comes close to the Hyundai group's after-sales care.
