Sun Roof Creaks & Rattles

I took delivery of a G80 Sport in January and have noticed that the sun roof creaks and rattles over rough pavement. I was wondering if anybody else has experienced a similar problem with their G80.

My 2017 G80 ultimate has body creaking sounds from passenger side door / dash area. After trouble shooting and consulting with Genesis tech support, they are replacing the entire sunroof assembly next week to hopefully remedy the problem... It is a single unit and something like $3000 for the whole assembly!

My G80 Ultimate is now a year old and is rattle free so far.

PS - I am just hitting one year old and 20K miles.

Hello MRICH1353. Hopefully this issue is an isolated problem. My dealer tells me they can resolve it. Let me know how yours turns out. I was told repairs could take up to 3 weeks. Good luck on your repairs.

Early on they lubricated the tracks and quite down the noise. It only recently went to the full body flexing sound. Hopefully this will be the fix.

Hi I just purchased a 2017 G80 H-Track premium package. It was a trade in with 16 k on it. The guy wanted the 3.3 Sport at least that is what the dealer told me. It is a fantastic automobile however I also have the creaky panoramic roof. It seems to do it when the body flexes. I guess my question is that it is covered under the bumper to bumper or will the dealership give me the run around? Thanks for any guidance you can give me in advance

Car was tied up almost a week, but new roof fixed the problem. This was the first replacement by local dealer, but they have another scheduled after mine.

Should be, but they will have to assess and confirm it is the appropriate work. The warranty cost is over $3000; I bet the company that manufactures the roofs is taking the hit.

Well to be fair these kinds of problems shouldn't be found in a "premium" vehicle. Can't believe it requires a whole new roof to fix the issue. If it becomes prevalent enough, hopefully Genesis will issue a recall for it.
