I must say that i had the complete opposite experience with Greensboro Hyundai, i had three Hyundai in my family mine is 2005 sonata and son is 2006 Elantra we bought them at southern states in Raleigh and had a horrible experience,my wife wanted to get rid of the minivan and get an SUV so we bought a 2008 Santa Fe last month and got $4500 off.
I did Internet shopping before buying and sent emails to several dealerships, the lowest quote was from Lee at Greensboro Hyundai and the second was from Johnson Hyundai In Cary, Greensboro's quote was $1100 less than Johnson's.
I confirmed the color and option with both by email, on Saturday we mad the drive to Greensboro from Raleigh got to the dealer and found out that they did not have the car in the color they told me they did, and when they convinced me to settle for another color they had it turns out that the price i was quoted on line included some rebates that i did not qualify for apparently Hyundai has rebates for every one and others for people in the army and recent college grads ext....
when i told them that i was disappointed in their misleading quote they said they had no way to know what rebates i qualify for, and they gave me a second price which was higher than Johnson's quote, when i told them that they offered to match it and later beat it by $100 it was a lengthy process and reminded us of southern states experience and it wasn't a surprise when we learned that they are the same company owned by the Dunn family .
We wanted a specific color they said they will get it for us and deliver it to our house, we did not feel we could trust them after they changed the numbers on us so we left.
The next day we went to Johnson Hyundai the Internet salesman was very professional and explained things about the vehicle we did not know, the color we wanted was sold so they gave us an option to get another Santa Fe same color with a more expensive package and split the difference we were delighted that they worked with us.
I agree that the facility at Johnson Hyundai is way over the top, the building the service area are top notch, but i did not feel that their overhead has anything to do with giving us a deal we felt every body from the salesman to the managers wanted to please us and make us comfortable, they said with a bigger overhead makes them try harder to sell more cars and give people better deals.
I say do you homework on line but be sure of what rebates you receive in the quote and make sure the dealer has the car you want before you drive all the way to them like what happened to us.

I am in NJ and only 1 dealer had it listed on their website, but when I bourght it up to a few others, they said it was in effect.
$1500 on top of 2000 on a 2009 Sonata if you are a current Hyundai owner.

Interesting! Hyundai's own website shows no such offer in NJ. Sometimes the web sites don't get updated right away... or it could be a special offer from NJ Hyundai dealers, not from HMA. Anyway, you Hyundai owners in NJ have a great deal available to you!

Seems to be an ok time to buy.
Approved for 5.79% for 48 months, not bad either I guess.
Would really like the V6 SE, but best price was 20,450 outthe door and just a bit more then I want to spend.
19k I would buy it
18450 is what I am looking at for the Se 4 auto, but dealer does not have it on his lot (no Se4's at all actually).
Will do my best to push 18k even and buy myself a new car this weekend

You might check the rates--was that from the dealer? I could get 4.49% for 60 months on a new or used car at a local bank when I bought a car a few days ago, but went with special 2.99% financing for 60 months from the manufacturer instead. You might be able to find better than 5.79%, depending on credit score.

Actually, that was from a bank, not dealer.
bankruptcy 8 years ago, but even with my FICO is 750ish.
Hmmm, will have to see if local bank or even dealer is better.

Actually, that's the dealer's decision, and it may be a better option than paying interest on inventory. A $19000 sale is better than paying interest. Make your offer, sales are down right now.

I am certainly going to try

Ok, well the desk manager wouldn't take 19, or 19,500 to the GM, but he did take 20k total out the door on a 2009 SE V6.
MSRP was 24,435
Selling Price 21,236.26
NJMV tire fee 7.50
Online processing fee 7.70
Credit Fee 99
Doc fee 399
Total of 23500
- 2000 rebate
-1500 lyoalty fee
$20,000 total take delivery tomorrow.

A credit fee of $99? Doc fee of $400? By my math, you paid $777 in fees. That's a blatant rip off. Nothing but profit padding. I bought mine in Doylestown, PA and the fees were:
22.50 title fee
5.00 tire tax
15.45 electronic registration fee
5.00 lien fee
100.00 documentation fee
10.00 tag fee
Grand total of $194 for all fees.
And they charged sales tax BEFORE applying the rebates?? I think you got ripped there as well. My dealer took the rebate off the selling price and THEN charged tax.
Here's how mine went:
• MSRP = 19135
• Fred Beans Price = 17998
• Less 2000 deduct = 15998
• Plus 6% sales tax of 959.88 = 16957.88
By taking the rebate first, my tax bill was lowered by $120. The additional rebate I got from the dealer was $950, which was applied after tax. But that was a dealer incentive with special rules. My out the door price was $16200 after all taxes and fees.
You paid an extra $245 in tax because they took the rebate AFTER you paid tax. I have to wonder if they pocketed this.
