This car is a very nice package. I am a new owner of a 3.8 Genesis sedan that is almost ready to change the break-in oil. I have owned an 06' Hyundai Sonata prior to the Genesis that proved to be very dependable. I still have the Sonata and hate to get rid of it. The Genesis is just so nice to drive...
I typically buy my cars a year or two old and let the first owner take the biggest loss on the vehicle. Also, I am not a typicle luxury car owner. I have a Ford F-150 pick-up, that is stick-shift but the Genesis is just so nice to drive...I say that the Genesis is my wife's car and she says the Genesis is mine.
I looked in the used car market for about two years and found the value to be very high. Private parties wanted two or three thousand less than I paid for a new one and their used car was about two years old!
I could have bought a lease return a little cheaper but most of them had about 20,000 miles on them or more. I did not know anyone still in the car business or at the auction, so, I started to shop on line!
What I found was that when you put your name out there to shop, you get a response. They want to know what you are looking for and then they want you to come out and look. I wanted a 3.8 sedan and I wanted a black or a white one, as simple as that. I told them to get me their best price and if I thought that it was a good price, then I would come out and look.
When these internet guys email or call, you have to stick to your guns; they want you to come out, you want the price. No good price first, no coming out! They tell you that they all have the best price, service, reputation, etc.,etc. Also, the manufacture has the same rebates with all the dealers, so the bottom price will be the same, if you qualify for all the rebates. It is a little work but it is as simple as that. I don't trade-in, so I get a real price. If you trade, then you will have to drive out to two or three of them to get your total price in writing. Then when you get into contract or finance, again, you have to stick to your guns with price or walk out. You can push the price down below 30k if you work at it. If you find this all too much, you can always go and pay the sticker price like they want you to.
My wife and I are happy with our Genesis and satisfied with what we paid, although, for us, it was still a lot of money. When we were in incontract/finance, the manager got upset and we argued briefly about the price. He had to go up-front and check our price because he thought it was incorrect; he purchased a Genesis last year and paid more than us with his employee discount! It was correct!
My wife and I were just out and we are careful where we park. We went out by the far side of the lot and parked near a Mercedes, black S-class sedan. She said we should take a look at it. She walked around and told me that she like our car better. The interior and the grill looked better! The S-class starts about $92.9!
We chose the lighter interior and I had the windows tinted and then I used some Turtle Wax Ice. The Genises is just so nice to drive...
