#2 of 1119 My Experiences with Three Dealers
Mar 04, 2006 (9:50 am)
Car Sought: Hyundai Azera Limited w/Ultimate package.
Dealer #1 - Westland Hyundai - Ogden, Utah -
Negotiated Base price to $27,900 (MSRP 30,075).
But refused to implement the lease deal as advertised by Hyundai and tacked on thousands of dollars in extra fees. The negotiated price was not bad, but they didn't know how to implemented financing options and I left quite sour. (Actually was TOLD to leave).
Dealer #2 - Riverton Hyundai - Riverton, Utah -
Would not negotiate below $28,700 (MSRP 30,075) They WERE able to offer some financing options such as the lease deal, but the negotiated price was too high for me. They mentioned they were the largest Hyundai dealership in the state of Utah, yet had only two Azera Ltd Ult in stock and they were unwilling to part with them for less.
Dealer #3 - Ken Garff Hyundai - Salt Lake City, Utah -
Refused to negotiate below $29,000 (MSRP 30075) They were able to implement financing options such as the lease program, but their invoice figures were high (not correct) and they added such ridiculous things as a "dealer name fee" ($350 for the privilege of putting "Ken Garff"'s name on the building). Price was way too high. Left
* I knew more about the Azera than the Hyundai dealer sales people.
* All refused to honor the advertised Hyundai lease deal on the Azera.
* Most outright lied about invoice price and holdbacks and other financial information
* Several added in "hidden" fees which they were very reluctant to disclose.
* Many were rude, telling me to leave or to get a plane ticket and fly to a different city.
* Many were completely incompetent and couldn't even work the lease software.
Personally, I was not impressed at all with the Hyundai dealers. Not only were they often dishonest about prices and fees, they didn't try AT ALL to keep me as a customer . . . and I had the checkbook in my back pocket READY to buy an Azera. I was READY to offer them $800 over invoice PLUS their $883 Holdback, and I was told to take a hike.
Congratulations to those that actually found a decent dealer that was honest and knew what they were doing. For the rest of you . . . good luck!
#3 of 1119 $25,400

Paid 25,400 for a silver limited with Accessory Group 02. Invoice is 26,205. Love the car!
#4 of 1119 Nice Deal

Congratulations! Nice. Excellent price. Where did you buy it, if you don't mind me asking? And how did you get it for so little?
The best I could get with Accessory pkg. #1 ($1000 more) was $27,900. I'm Jealous!

Has anyone gotten a quote on the 10/100,000 bumper to bumper extended warranty and if so, what was the price? Thanks.

I went into the dealer and told them I was sitting on the fence between a new Charger and the Azera, though I was leaning towards the Charger. I was at the time, and expect they could tell that without an excellent price I was going to wish them 'best of luck' and head over to Dodge. The sales manager ended up working with me directly, and he was (I assume) more interested in the dealer holdback and other incentives he had in moving cars more than a commission. He quoted me 25,300 and when I told him I wasn't going to pay the doc fee he offered to split it with me. Normally I'd argue but I knew this was a good deal so I let him up the price by a hundred bucks. I got the car at the end of February, and I expect that was a motivating factor for them. In the finance room the guy told me that the dealership was gambling a bit that with my sale, and others they hoped to get before the 28th, they'd qualify for bonuses that would make it a more profitable deal for them.
I can't stress this enough - try to get a sales manager rather than a standard salesman. I had a similar good experience when buying a Mazda Miata a few years ago.
Incidentally, after re-testing both the Azera and the Charger the Azera was a clear winner. Sure, it doesn't have a Hemi, but that's about all the Charger had going for it (sexy looks notwithstanding). I drive 80 miles round trip to work, and was much more interested in comfort (dare I say luxury?) than speed. I've been completely happy with the Azera - it's a pleasure to drive and when I feel like going fast it's got enough power to keep me happy.
#7 of 1119 The Good, The Bad and the Ugly truth

There are two Hyundai dealers in Albuquerque and the difference between them is like night and day. I went to Southwest a few weeks ago and was treated worse than badly by the sales manager who offered me an insulting 60% of low trade-in value for a 10 month old Amanti with 6500 miles in perfect condition and on top of that they wanted $2700 above sticker. There was no negotiation. Darn right there was no negotiation, there was no deal either. But really loving the car, I called Larry H. Miller on the following friday afternoon and asked for the specific color and model that I wanted. I was told "We've got it!" and promised a visit saturday thoroughly expecting to get there and be told "we just sold it" or some bait and switch tactic. To my amazement, I drove through the gate and the Azera I asked for was parked at the entrance, the salesperson greeted me from across the lot (the trade-in I was driving was a dead give-away), we drove it (more than once), I loved it, I bought it (under sticker). They gave me a decent trade-in dollar. I was out in 2 hours (1 of which was my hesitation). Best experience of my car-buying life.

Sounds like a great price. Did that include the destination charge?
Also, have you checked your gas mileage? Is it close to the EPA estimates?

They play games and have bad sales tactics. Watch for bogus window etching, doc fees, and overcharged DMV fees.Also, watch warranty terms before you sign.
