I live in Northern NJ. As soon as it was available I sent in my $100.00 for the privilege to buy a car. The concierge set me up with about 5 dealers. Between my wife, daughter and me we have bought 4 Hyundai’s 2 Elantra’s 1 Sonatas and 1 Genesis. So I have been to just about all of them in the past. What has me really P-—ED off. I want a Limited. None of them will give me a quote, most of them say they don’t know the price. I tell them it is 54,500.00 with a $1,225.00 shipping cost, and say stop playing dumb. I had one pull a computer spreadsheet to show me that they are paying just $100.00 under MSRP to Hyundai. I told him that I know how to make a spreadsheet just like them and mine says they are paying 5% under MSRP. Which I have researched. Then they said that the Limited’s are 3 months away. I told them that the concierge sent me an email 2 days ago that said that they have sent them my contact info and preferences for the Limited. They also said that the cars are on the way and would be at the dealers shortly. Which one do you think is telling the truth. I have filed a complaint with Hyundai USA yesterday. Today the concierge service called me today, (unsolicited) to ask have I talked to the dealer, (The same one I am talking about) or have they contacted me. I told her my issues, asking her to pass on my experience to however is taking this survey.Well, this is a first: Hyundai of South Brunswick NJ is doing $3k over msrp on SEL AWD, but the manager wouldn’t take $7500 federal EV tax credit out of the lease cost!
They initially had no clue NJ had 0% EV sales tax either.
Out of principal I will not pay 2,3 or more over MSRP. I can wait, maybe another year. The charging speed I believe is worth it. Also I have seen all the reviews, Korean, Europe,and USA. Sorry I wrote a short story.
