What color combo did you get? What were the final numbers if you don't mind me asking?

LaShawn, I got the Platinum ( light silver) with black interior.
Pricing - had them to start with Invoice, which I got from the zag.com through american express. For the 3.8 w Premium pkg, it was like 37400. Add the greatly reduced amount for their pre-installed "pack" ($500) and then apply the $1500 Hyundai owner rebate. I also traded in a 2006 Azera so that went toward cap reduction.
Of course when you see the 36 mo lease agreement, the numbers all seem different, but residual after 36 mo was like 24K and the money factor was at 4%.
I had to negotiate to get there, after being repeatedly told that there was no way they would start at invoice. I have bought 3 other Hyundais and know that drill. If you have a dealer that is in the zag.com program, use that as a bargaining chip. As I understand, they have to honor the price that zag shows, and I am sure they pay a fee for the referral coming through. When they wouldn't come down to invoice, I said I would just take the 3 bids form zag.com/amex and see who came in lowest. Not what they want to hear when you are sitting there and they know you are serious.
Hope that helps

So does zag.com work with leasing? I'm interested in leasing a model and wasn't sure if you leased your current car.
Thanks in advance

Dutton, I used the zag.com/Amex details to help set invoice to be used as cap cost for my lease. My dealer started out with the "we can't do a 2012 at invoice" in our negotiation, so I used the zag cost and said I would use it and get bids from 3 dealers to negotiate. I think the dealers have to accept the zag numbers to be int he program and likely pay a fee for the reerral.
It was a help.
Good luck in your lease....what are you looking to get?

Thanks for the advice. I'm looking at getting a 2012 Genesis with the premium package. I'm working with the leasing specialist and will keep you posted.
Thanks again, your post has been a great help.

If you want a 3.8, they are getting onto the lots in good numbers, more on the coasts first. the 4.6 is due within the next 30 days. I read elsewhere that the 5.0 R-Spec is 30-60 days out.

Just winding up first week with new 3.8 with Premium package. Could not be more delighted! The learning curve is a bit daunting given the "bells & whistles", but fun to find out something new everyday. Traded a 2007 Azera Ltd. w/54K mileage. Negotiated purchase price of $35,904 with a trade-in of $13,000 and the Loyalty discount of $1,500. Did not know to get the $500 spiff on the tire enhancements. Only concern is the Michelin tires as I had a major noise problem with the Azera. So far it seems OK, but I may be more forgiving than others with better hearing.

Rance, sorry, I don't know about the tire spiff? Can you post details?
I had Michelin MXV4 on a 2006 Azera and they were shot in 20,000 miles of very non-aggressive driving (my wife).
The only noise I hear at highway speed in the Genesis is tire noise.

Hi car readers / seekers, I was driving dusk hours on I-95N from a VA-beach wknd. trip, and Iím looking in my rearview-mirror thinking thereís an Audi A-car riding behind me, but then the car quickly brisk past me and then thought itís an Infiniti-M? So I later drove to a rest stop for gas and I saw two new 2012 Genesis (beige V6 & midnite blue V8) sedans. I must say those LED-lights and the grille-fascia improve & change a whole new ball game in this car type-segment. Both Gens had Zoom-out from rest stop, again quickly! This Genesis is a sharp car !
Has anyone seen the 2012 Hyundai Genesis sedan on the road/highway? Is there any potential buyer /owner received low price-quote? Possibly under invoice-price from dealership (trim-level, color, V6 or V8) in the NY, CT, north NJ-central metro area or PA (philly-south Jersey), DE, MD bal-dc metro area. Please text or pic-post most recent experience of í12 Genesis-sedan (CPO í09 -í11 as well) Thx. VeraGen

After much shopping, I bought my 2012 Genesis 3,8 w/tech pkg last week.
I looked at Audi (peddles to close together)
Infiniti M 37 (not crazy about the mileage and runs only on premium fuel) Linclon MKZ hybrid (not enough front leg room; and I thought the material were cheap)
I traded in my 2007 Infiniti M35; the Genesis had at least 15 more features and ran on regular gas and got better mileage. It was as close to a "No Brainer" as you could get.
I'm just getting settled into the car... only 300 miles on it but I'm loving the it. Not sure how long I have to drive it before I start getting the advertised mileage, but again I haven't gone thur the initial tank of gas yet
