and why do you say this? I sell cars( Not Hyundai's right now but did for 7 years).

I'd love to hear your justification for bashing Hyundai.

They can show you $4k for your car because they are just moving a little from column a over to column b.

Exactly.

Never answer their question about what payment you want.

The only things that matter is price for the car...price for trade-in....and the rate they give you.

Look at each individually up front. They like to play shell games the minutes monthly payment is the goal.

Often you get too caught up with payment and end up with a 6-7 year financing instead if 5....common way they get your payment down.


You are both correct in what you are saying but ignorance is bliss. Let him be happy.

A 13 hyundai genesis coupe. & yeah always focus on the bottom line first. Just the first thing he came back with was the monthly with no apr to be found and no actual value on the loan. It was laughable.


Congrats, you made a good choice.

We've bought two New cars recently, (long story) but I never ever talk payments... That's the first thing sales guys will ask you. Both times I told the guy that if he mentioned payments again that I would walk out. He did, and he had to chase me out and apologize.

I yell them to bring me the cost of the new car, my trade value and all taxes, tags and fees... I can figure payments out.

I understand how it works, just telling in terms they were trying to speak. I got a very good deal on the actual cost of the car before factoring trade and the amount i wanted to put down. It just took HOURS of bs

I got a $28k car (3 years ago) for 20k after $3k deduction and $4k trade in for my car plus that $1.5k down. Good deal to me.

with sites like Edumnds, you know the invoice price for the car and the extras, as well as all of the dealer charges. There's no reason anyone should ever pay anything over invoice these days.

their comments and my followup was directed toward Arsen, which he is happy too.

indeed, that sounds like a good deal to me as well, considering your trade was really on worth 1k as you said.

The last few times I bought a car, I decided what I wanted, and got a pre-approved loan from my credit union. I picked out the car I wanted, told them what I was willing to pay, and signed the contracts. Dropped the check from the credit union off to them the next day and picked up the car. When the dealer tried to discuss payment amounts I told him not to worry about it.

My Credit Union now has a car buying service, and I am thinking about trying that next time I buy something.
