Here are my thoughts after a few weeks of ownership. Frankly, I'm pissed I ever bought the car I had before this car (2012 Acura TL-SHAWD w/ Adv pkg). This is such a better car and I actually paid $1,000 LESS for the Genesis than the TL. The ride is so much smother at all speeds, handling is tighter, and my god the low end torque is addictive! I punched it going 40 and the downshift to 2nd gear felt like someone punched me in the back! The transmission is much smoother shifting than my Acura was. Car is quieter than the Acura at all speeds (only had it up to about 85, I know, shameful!). Much better navi system and lots of options that I couldn't even get on the Acura like rain sensing wipers, adaptive lighting, lane departure warning, radar cruise, power folding side mirrors and power rear sunshade. I feel like I got 50% more car for less money. Gripes? I wish the steering wheel was a little thicker and I wish there was a little more head room, but I'm 6'5" so that's to be expected. Also the backup camera is pretty crappy compared to the HD camera in my TL. Overall I am thrilled with the car. And the best part? Watching the look on peoples faces when I tell them it's a Hyundai:)

$39.7K was my price independent of trade-in value. I got a 2013 R-Spec with mud guards (which I had them remove) and cargo tray, so MSRP is $47,890.
I traded in a 2010 G37S 6MT with low mileage (~25K) and significant equity. They gave me a decent trade-in offer for the car (about $1K less than I'd have wanted, but close enough given the great price on the new car), so with the 1.9% financing on the difference, I have a crazy low payment on a pretty tremendous amount of car!
I'd love to say that I'm a super negotiator, but their initial quote via email was just over $40K, and with one additional email exchange we landed on $39.9K. Round Rock beat that by $200 to try to get my business, but then Beasley met Round Rock and was 20 miles closer to my house. That's how I got to $39.7K + TT&L. Pretty easy!
Hope this helps,

Thanks for the details, Scott.
So, in reality, it was $39.7 - equity from trade in + TT&L.
Or did you simply take a check from the dealer for the equity in your G37?
Either way, seems like you got a great deal on a car you love.

Michael, it was $39.7K - trade-in-equity + TT&L. I used the equity (trade-in value - payoff) to lower the tax basis of the Genesis. I might have gotten more in a private party sale, but the tax savings probably canceled that out for the most part, and it certainly simplified the transaction considerably.

Sorry to ask for all of the clarification, but I wanted to make sure everyone who reads this forum knows what price to shoot for if they are in the market for a similar car.
And yes, the tax savings (in those states where it is offered) often outweighs any potential monetary gain from a private sale.

I found a dealership that still has 2012's (new) for sale. I offered $33k flat, which after hardly any effort they accepted. (I should've offered less.) The only further fees are tax, title, registration. They are also wanting a $200 doc fee, which is ridiculous, but I'll pay it if 33k sounds like a good deal for the 4.6. If not, I'll keep looking to scoop an older (new) model.

Anyone at all? Opinions?

If your new 2012 model is Stolen or Totaled in a Accident what is the book value on a 2 year old genesis. That is the real question.. Once you find out that price you will know if 33k is a good offer. I personally think for 30,000 would be a real good deal if you could get it. 33k is much to high on this vehicle.
Dealer retail for a 2012 certified is 30,995
Trade in ....................................26,692
I pulled these prices of the Edmunds site.

Thanks, Brian. Not at all the answer I was hoping for, but I do appreciate the honesty. I had thought I scored a good deal. As I have not bought it yet, I'm off the hook; however, disappointing nonetheless.
