Well, about a month ago, before I started looking for my "new" used car I saw news report on TV that used car market was crazy this year. Later, when I decided to buy slightly used Azera, I began searching Autotrader and local Craig List.
I was searching every day for a month. The cheapest price and mileage I found was 2009 Azera Limited with 13,000 miles in Florida (and I live in Michigan) priced at $19,880. Then I decided to search Craig List in the nearby states. And I found this car in Ohio Cleveland area. And I drove there two time, to test the car, and then to get it because this was a steal.

why isn't the cap cost lower?
34479 - 2250 + 595 = 32824 (not 33962)
Adding $180 tax on the 2250 still makes it 33004
is something missing?

Because the doc fee and title fee and sales tax on the cap cost reduction are also included. I tried to get them to remove the doc fee but they wouldn't. Hyundai isn't currently providing any incentives to the dealers on the Azera.

You need to go back and complain about this deal.
1. The doc fee in Nevada is completely optional (i.e., negotiable)
2. There is $1000 lease bonus cash on the Azera:
"Lease Bonus Cash Leasing Bonus Cash
Requirements and Restrictions:
Customer Bonus Cash is available towards leasing. Available on 36-48 month term contracts. Must finance through Hyundai Motor Finance.

$1,000 01/03/2013 04/01/2013
Raise some hell with them; they were not honest with you.

I know the doc fee isn't mandatory and I told them exactly that, but they refused to budge on it.
I actually did get the $1,000 lease cash, in addition to the $750 loyalty discount, and $500 military discount for a total of $2,250 in incentives.
The doc fee was really the only part of the lease I wan't too happy with. I was able to get out of my Sonata lease a few months early though and not have to pay the disposition fee, so I can't complain too much.
I don't know what good complaining would do anyways since I already signed on the dotted line.

OK, i understand better now. You did get the 1000 lease cash as part of the 2250. Nice upgrade from the Sonata; I am jealous. My Sonata lease is up in 2 months but i am shopping the new Accord. Enjoy your new luxury car!

Thanks! Yeah it really is significantly nicer than the Sonata...and it should be since it is nearly double the price of the base model Sonata GLS I had. The engine is smooth and powerful, it is much quieter inside, the interior is amazing, and the Infinity sound system is pristine. No joke, this car is nicer than some of the much more expensive luxury cars I test drove. The panoramic sunroof and in-cabin ambient LED lighting at night are also pretty sweet.
I also shopped the new Accord, and it is a great car. I liked a few things about the Azera better...especially the looks and the feel that it is more of a luxury car than the Accord. The interior is nicer too. The Accord is a bit more reasonably priced, gets better mileage, and actually accelerates quite a bit faster if you get the V-6. But overall, I still like the Azera more.

I drove the new Avalon. It is a nice car, but the Azera's interior is better. Also, there are zero incentives on the Avalon right now and the money factor is high. It would have cost me over $100/month more to lease an Avalon, and that is in Touring trim which doesn't even have leather. To get leather, you are looking at $39K min for an Avalon which would have pushed the monthly payment well over $600/month. I could have leased a Mercedes E Class for less than that.
I drove the Audi A4 and A6. The A6 was nice, but way too pricey and the lease was pretty awful on it. The A4 was decent, but the Azera has a better interior. I also have kids, so the tiny trunk and back seat in the A4 didn't quite cut it for car seats and strollers.
