If the sales rep ever did accept my offer on the spot without having to get management involved (which has never happened by the way), but if it did happen, I would walk.
I see. So you are fine in using deceptive buying practices. You make an offer, it is accepted, then you retract the offer and leave. Sorry, you just lost me there. Good luck to you.
btw, there's a chain of dealerships (including a Hyundai store) in my area where management NEVER gets involved in a deal. The sales people have total responsibility for each transaction, from working with the customer on which vehicle (and they can sell a vehicle from any of the chain's many stores, from many makes), agreeing to a price, arranging for financing, and discussing add-ons like extended warranties. You only see one person for the entire transaction. So if you are looking to always have an offer taken to management, you may have to strike some dealerships off your list.

I am far from deceptive. I am very respectful throughout the process. As I said, it has never happened where my offer was accepted by the sales rep immediately. With the pricing I come up with, it can't happen.
I also do my research. There is one dealer in my area where the is no negotiating. The prices are clearly displayed. I have a strategy for dealing with such dealers. I don't shop there, period. I would also not shop at a dealer as you mention where management is not allowed to get involved. Its as simple as that.
I haven't met anyone yet who gets a better deal on a car than I can. I help others to do the same and to be respectful.

Sorry, but IMO it's not respectful nor honest to be ready to renege on an oral contract if it's accepted too quickly for your taste. If you ever run into a situation where your initial offer is accepted by the sales person, I hope you will do the right thing and accept their offer, rather than walk out.

IMHO, $20,000 OTD is a good price for a GLS with PEP. Enjoy your new car.
I haven't closed my deal yet. Hopefully, I will do it by Jan 2.
I got an estimate for extended warranty (Warranty Direct) for 10 years/100,000 miles for $990 ($100 ded/visit). I am not sure whether it is worth getting this one or not ? I haven't obtained a decent number of comments here. I am still researching about it elsewhere.

Thanks, was offered a 10y/ 100k warranty with 50$ deductible for 13xx$. I think this warranty covers above and beyond what hyundai already covers. I declined, though. I bought the car in north texas.

Which dealership in N TX?
I ought mine at Freeman Irving after Van Hyundai dealer did not agree on lowering price.
Van Hyundai wanted me to pay 20k before taxes.
I settled on 19k before taxes with Freeman.
OTD is about 20300.

i'll give you a dealer where there is no negotiating because their deals are so good you won't believe them. they post the msrp and then give you the actual price which is thousands ( yes thousands ) lower than the msrp. the dealer is in salem, new hampshire. their website is www.salemhyundai.net
i'll be using them next time i buy a hyundai and i have bought three at a dealership in mass. and i intend to use salems price when i negotiate with the mass dealer for my next purchase. and their "price in salem usually does not include the incentives.
salem new hamp. is only 25 miles from me.
check it out.
