Dealers here are selling '08 Azera Limiteds with only 8,000 miles on them for $19,000. That's a $13,000 drop in only 1 year.
Perhaps this is quibbling, but nobody on earth is paying anywhere near the $32,000 loaded MSRP for an Azera -- any Azera. Chances are it's a drop of more like $8,000 than $13,000 from the actual purchase price, which is bad but not unique.
As for thegraduate's comments on an insurance total, if you paid $7,000 less to begin with and then get $7,000 less from the insurance company when it gets totaled, how would you have saved by paying more up front?

It would be nice if insurance worked in a fair manner like you lay out in your post( by the way, couldn't agree more about the Azera "price drop" comments ) but for discussion's sake I'll leave it at our last posts on the issue.
My girlfriend just bought herself a Hyundai. 2007 Santa Fe GLS with heated leather and the 2.7L, 14,000 miles, and only paid $13,500. It was a local-bank-owned repo that blue-booked for over $16,000. She tickled with it. It's quite a nice ride!

I lucked out and got an AWESOME deal on my 07 Azera. I did not purchase it until 09/2008 but it was an 07 that never sold. It only had 450 miles on it. The Azera Limited where listing at $32,000.00 and I only paid $21000.00 for mine that is fully loaded except navigation. It is a GREAT car. I love it. This is the second Hyundai that I have purchased. My first was a 2001 Sonata that I have for 7 years and put 125,000 miles on it. I did not even replacfe a head lamp on this car until it 90,000 miles. They have both been great cars and Hyundais are definiately moving up.
MY NEXT WILL BE A GENISIS COUPE!!! Very fun little car to drive.
