Hyundai Cuts Back on Some Incentives
Because of Hyundai's success this year, the company is cutting back on promotions, such as cash-back incentives.
The 2011 Hyundai Accent gets only a $500 cash-back incentive, compared with $2,500 cash back on Chevrolet's Aveo. The Hyundai Sonata has no cash back and a 2.9% financing deal for 60 months.
Overall, the usually generous Korean automakers are now pretty much in line with tightfisted Honda.
But Hyundai is offering some good leasing deals: The 2011 Sonata and the 2011 Elantra Touring both get a $199-per-month lease promotion for November.

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar, Edmunds, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
