They might be expensive in VA. But Carmax usually transfers cars from across the country for only few hundred dollars. I remember someone getting a car transferred from OH to TX for 500 from Carmax.
Just look around. It might even be cheaper to fly to Texas & drive back! (Just looking out for you buddy!)
#1090 of 1124 Hyundai Azera 2008 Model Performance even after an accident
Mar 19, 2010 (12:39 am)
For anyone who has any doubts, my 2008 Azera Limited is doing fabulously, even after a major rear-end accident last year. The 22 year old driver of an Enterprise rental car (whose car was already in the shop from another accident) took out my left rear quarter-panel, tire, chunk off the steel wheel, and spun me around. I was not only uninjured, but managed to pull the car off onto the shoulder on 395-South in DC. The Chevy Malibu she was driving was totaled and she ended up 500 feet up the roadway. Only reason she didn't end up in the slammer was the fact that her boyfriend in the car was a DC cop.
5k cost to repair my Azzy, but Falls Church Auto Body (Virginia) did such a great job that my mechanic at Alexandria Hyundai said he wouldn't have noticed the work unless I had mentioned it when I asked to have them put it onto the rack so we both could see it. Only minor, millimeter sized, differences from what it should be.
My bottom line...safe car, saved me from whiplash...definitely will drive it until it dies, even if I can afford a fancier car in the meantime. 'Mi-Ok', Korean for 'beautiful pearl' will be my girl for a long time...

I've had my 2011 Azera Limited for about a month now and, so far, I've been very pleased! Very uneventful purchase. I paid cash and didn't qualify for any incentives. The finance guy was very efficient and didn't try to sell me a bunch of extras. It was done as fast as I could sign the papers & write the check. The price was $300 below invoice plus they gave me $800 more on my trade in than my CarMax appraisal. I was very pleased because I didn't have a very desirable vehicle for trade. I test drove 7 cars before making my decision. Itís not often you find the least expensive choice to have the highest quality!

Who knows what true dealer cost is, but I think I did pretty well for where I live & the number of dealers to choose from. They matched the lowest price I could get in a 100-mile radius, and then gave me $800 more on my trade than anyone else, plus they didn't charge for the $100 floor mats on the sticker. The $775 transportation fee was in the sticker price. I read on the Internet dealer hold back was $902 on these cars, but couldnít find any info on factory incentives for the dealer. The only add on, besides sales tax, was a $399 "administrative fee, they refused to negotiate. If I missed something in the process I would like to know, so I can be better armed next time.

I would think you probably got more on your trade in because you paid cash for the car. Only question though.....curious as to why when paying cash, you didn't get a 2009 or 2010, and not lose about $7000 when you drove the car off the lot.

Because of my past experience two things I will never do again: Buy an American car or buy a used car. Plus I liked the bigger engine in the 2011 and I wanted the full 5 year-60000 mile warranty. Other dealers knew I was paying cash, but didn't want the trade in.

I'm confused, how come you wanted the full 5 year-60000 mile warranty on a new Azera?. I thought you get a 10 year-100000 mile warranty on a new Azera. I got the full 5 year-60000 on my used 5000 mile 2008 Azera.
