Hyundai Deals Hard to Negotiate Right Now
I know many of you are interested in these vehicles and wondering when you'll have more inventory to choose from. Unfortunately, it's not going to be anytime soon.
Hyundai says they will not sacrifice vehicle quality in order to produce more vehicles, which is actually a smart move - but will come with short-term pain for shoppers.
The incentives on these hot models have been ho-hum over the last couple of months. There's mostly just low APR financing incentives, some lease deals, and some loyalty bonuses - but it's difficult to negotiate on price.
Some dealers are getting away with charging MSRP - especially on the Elantra and Velosters. We probably won't see incentives or price discounts improving much over the next few months, so if you've got your heart set on one of these vehicles, don't expect stellar deals.
A good way to see how low dealers will go is to use the free CarWoo negotiation tool.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and NADAGuides 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.
