#326 of 379 Rock Bottom Price For 3.6 P&T Gen
Dec 23, 2011 (5:37 pm)
I went to Sheppard Hyundai in Eugene, OR and selected a black on black Gen 3.6 with Premium and Tech. MSRP was $44,030. I asked if they would sell it to me for the Zag.com price of $37,654 and they agreed, although they remarked that they "wouldn't be making a nickel" on the transaction.
Perhaps the fact that we are nearing month and year-end had something to do with it, but I think that a $6,376 discount is phenomenal. That's 14.7% off of sticker. Only other charge was $77 for title fee and $75 to transfer my license plates and register the car. Outstanding!
This is a perfect example of what Hyundai has been preaching… lots of value for the dollar.
When I drove the 125 miles home yesterday I was extremely well pleased with the car. It handles beautifully, is quieter than the Lexus and goes like a rocket ship with its 333 hp engine - and the factory specifies regular gas! Tomorrow I plan to read all the manuals and learn how to run all the many gadgets on it. The topping on the cake today was when I looked carefully at the black noir paint in the sun today, I discovered that it is actually metallic and has flecks of gold in it. Beautiful!
Next week I am having the 3M rock protection film applied for $659. I had planned to spend another $1,000 for chrome wheels, but the factory wheels look so bright I might just save that cash instead.
Only other plan is to replace the trunk and steering wheel logos. I'd like to think I am doing that for general appearance, but I think it is mostly in the hope that I won't have to explain to everyone why I bought a Hyundai. If I do, I'll tell them that this car is quicker, quieter, handles better and has more fancy options than my $65,000 Lexus LS430. Only negative is that it has a firmer ride, but I can get used to that.
I think I read somewhere in the forum that one owner tells those who inquire about his de-badged Gen that it is an entry level Bentley. Think I'll try that. Put me down as a very happy convert.

For what it's worth, Patrick Hyundai in Schaumberg, Il. is blowing out their remaining 2012 Genesis inventory with discounts between $6,000 and $8,000 off sticker price. The discounted pricing can be seen on their web site.

#330 of 379 Bargains in Bergen-County, Paramus, NJ as well!

Bergen County Auto Group had the same New Year’s Sale $8,000 off MSRP from there Chrysler, Dodge, Nissan & Hyundai dealerships. They too have discounts on their website & newspaper ads, I took the advantage of purchasing a Hyundai GENesis. I had seen the low-price ads of Patrick Hyundai, Chi-town area on other auto-sites. Patrick Hyundai low-prices on the Genesis are lower than FitzGerald Hyundai of B-more/ DC-area. Any website or newspaper ads that carefully read of $8,000 or more off from MSRP is worth lookin into. Especially the Genesis of NYC-North Jersey area. I finally have the GENesis!

FYI, called the dealer and the discount is "fake", for only certain people may qualify for the full discount.
#332 of 379 bought a used 2010 4.6
Feb 07, 2012 (6:55 pm)
I shopped and shopped the new genesi, and read much of the advice on here. But when I test drove a plain 3.8, I just didn't like the look of all the fake wood on the dash. If it was a dark color, maybe it would be ok, but I need the light interior to match my dogs. The dealer offered 32K +TTL, which seemed fair, but if I'm going to look at the front of a car, i want it to be one I feel thrilled about.
So, I test drove a private party 2010 4.6 with tech, nav, chrome rims, hell every option possible, even the ipod cable and cargo nets in the trunk. It is sapphire midnight blue with the cashmere interior, and it just looked gorgeous. 20K miles, original owner. I bought it for $27,000.
So, a couple of observations: the suspension is a bit more wiggly than the 2012, but nothing whatsoever so crazy as some blogs have claimed. (maybe the fact that I live in Phoenix which has pretty smooth roads helps that) In fast corners, it doesn't lean in much, so the wigglyness, is an odd sensation, it isn't a soft suspension.
The dash looks great! its mostly soft with only small amounts of wood which are dark. the back up camera is fantastic. the lexicon 17 speaker whateverthehell stereo sounds fantastic. xm radio was working on it, I'm hoping they just paid for the next year!
the smart cruise control is useless in the city, as whenever anyone cuts in front of you it hits the brakes, even if they are going faster than you. That is constant in Phoenix, so like all cruise controls, it can't be used in city freeway driving, but I can imagine it being very good on trips to San Diego or Vegas.
Anyways, I thought I really wanted the 3.8 and the new transmission, for the better gas mileage. But when you factor in taking over $10K off the price, well that can far more than pay the difference in gas usage for as long as I'll have the car. ( I don't drive tons anyways, about 10K a year if that. I bike commute to work)
And though not the Rspec, the 4.6 still feels MUCH stronger than the 3.8 when you feel like romping it.
#333 of 379 2012 Hyundai Genesis
Mar 05, 2012 (8:01 pm)
Got new 2012 Hyundai Genesis base trim for $29600 (with competitive owner rebate) in February. Like the car so far, it's fast and powerful. Cons: headlights could be a little brighter (my wife's new Outback has way better headlights), and windshield washers and wipers don't do a good job at highway speed (at least when it's cold - it takes at least 10 wipes to wipe off all the fluid leftovers) - something that I wouldn't expect from a car that considered "luxury". Otherwise I'm happy with the purchase and the car is pleasure to drive.

#335 of 379 2013 Genesis Coupe Deal
Apr 13, 2012 (8:11 pm)
Very happy with my deal. 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe (2.0T, 6sp manual, Gran Premo Grey). MSRP with options is $25405. Invoice price is $24163. Before taxes I am paying $23763, or $400 under invoice. Also getting 2.9% financing and they gave me KBB value on my trade-in.
They also offer lifetime power train warranty, oil changes for the first three years, and were great to work with. No hassle, no pressure.
This is Morries Hyundai in St Louis Park, Minnesota. No other dealer could touch this price. I did find some good deals on 2012 models, but I really wanted the 2013 due to the improvements.
