Hyundai Azera, Sedan
#1077 of 1124 Bought an '09 Azera and LOVE IT!
Sep 30, 2009 (9:22 am)
I live in Eastern NC and have been researching a Genesis and finally decided to do it with the current lease program. Contacted every Hyundai dealership from Raleigh to the coast giving numbers via email and could we make a deal.
My dealer experience:
Joe Pecheles (Greenville): This was actually the 2nd Hyundai I tried to buy from them in the past 2 months. Friends were looking for an Elantra. They tried to play games with me then (Sales Manager and Salesman) and lied to me when I stopped by a couple of weeks ago to look at the Genesis (BTW I did not give them my name either time.) Never even responded to me regarding the Genesis after emails.
Medlin Hyundai (Rocky Mount): Contacted me 3 days after receiving my email. Also would not give any numbers on the phone regarding friend's Elantra.
Southern States (Raleigh): Agreed on Genesis, but BS me on trade-in and Genesis lease incentives.
Lee Hyundai (Fayetteville): Okay, just slow to get back with me on numbers. by the time they did I had bought a car from............
Hyundai of New Bern (New Bern): I ended up buying my friend's Elantra from them after calling one time and talking to Sales Manager. Gave great deal in writing and only kept my friends long enough to get paperwork done. Wally and Liz were great.
I went down there to look at Genesis and talk numbers after initial conversations. Not feeling really good thinking maybe financially I needed to wait until next Summer. They had an 2009 white Azera. LOVED IT. Just about everything you get with a loaded Genesis for A LOT less $$$. Worked with Liz again as well as Bobby and Cecil. Mr. Strickland (owner) was also very nice and friendly. No pressure, easy process. :0)

#1079 of 1124 Azera Purchase
Sep 30, 2009 (10:56 am)
I purchased a 2009 Azera Limited Ultimate Navigation package with Bluetooth, carpet mats and beautiful white paint. Traded in 2004 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer with 120,000. Had a little negative equity due to plumenting SUV values due to prior high cost of gas.
I don't have the numbers in front of me, but got below invoice, plus $1000 rebate, plus special financing rate that my credit union could not touch.

A reporter is looking to see if you were looking to purchase a Toyota or Honda vehicle but after doing some comparison shopping, purchase a Hyundai or Kia because of price/value . Please send your daytime phone number to ctalatiedmunds.com by Friday, October 9, 2009.

Just signed on to a used 2008 Azera Limited with Ultimate package.
$17,000 OTD(this figure includes tax, tag transfer etc..)
I've been a Hyundai owner since 1988 having owned a '88 Excel, '92 Scoupe, '98 Sonata, 2001 Santa Fe, 2007 Santa Fe and my wife currently drives a '08 Hyundai Veracruz Limited that she loves.
I drive a company car(Grand Caravan) but considering my son is learning to drive and I wanted a sedan, I felt the Azera would make an ideal used vehicle purchase. When you factor in the impressive engineering, features, quality and surprising depreciation of the Azera, it became a screaming bargain!
Cannot wait to detail this car and make it shinier than new.

I have the same exact car except mine is 2009. You will love it!
#1083 of 1124 What a great car!

We've had our '08 Azera since Saturday and we are really impressed with the ride. I'm assuming we have the updated struts as our car has 42,500 miles and rides fantastic!
Whats so remarkable is we also own a Veracruz with the same 3.8 litre engine and the Azera accelerates and shifts sooooo much better. Hard to believe they're the same engine!

Enjoy your car. I love my 2009! I hope to add on mud guards this weekend to keep the paint in great shape.

After researching Azera's for a week (as well as prices all over Virginia), I finally decided on a used 2008 Azera Limited with what I believe is the ultimate package (telescoping steering wheel, adjustable pedals, etc) with 40K. I called approximately 4 dealerships, and the best price I negotiated was $15,300 OTD through Charles from Hall Automotive in Va Beach.
Charles was an absolute gentlemen, along with being very easy to talk to and negotiate with. I'm very glad to give him my business.
The other dealerships include one in VA beach whose internet salesperson (Scott) hung up on me (details: I let him know that I was looking at another Azera which had a price $1500 less than the one he was selling. He tried to justify his markup by saying it was due to the fact that his carried a transferable warranty, and he could ALMOST guarantee that his had better tires and fresher brakes. I then said that I could buy brand new tires and brakes for less than $1500. Then he hung up.) Another dealer in Richmond, VA had two Azeras with the exact same mileage and details, but couldn't get the price even close to the $15,300. Still, they didn't hang up on me.
Anyways, looking forward to closing the deal on Friday when I can make it down there to pick it up. Also, thanks to everyone for their prior posts as I utilized them for my research.
