Crossed over to the darker side

Hi Guys my name is Matt and I picked up a 2019 N-line w/tech package and DCT transmission on the first of this month and have no regrets once so ever. Car was listed for $27k and after a little negotiating, the final price was $22k out the door. As a long time VW guy I'm very impressed with car, especially the fit and finish. Was kinda surprised it lacked a few safety features that were standard on other cars, but it wasn't a deal breaker. I have to say that I'm very impressed with the DCT as well, especially for being developed in house by Hyundai.Its a very responsive transmission, and definitely rivals that of other dual clutch transmissions out there. The engine is very responsive, especially for such a small displacement and the power band & broad torque curve is nice too. The N-line with the tech package was a no contest & definitely sold me on the car. Between the panoramic sunroof, alpine stereo, and heated/cooled seats its a great deal. As for the handling, the car is great in the corners although I wished the DCT received the summer tires like the manual transmissions because the all seasons leave much to be desired. But anyway sorry for the rambling on, and look forward to info here on the forum!

Very nice! You got a smoking deal. I could not get anyone to come down to that price even on a DCT without the tech package.

Nice ride! In Canada we get the unfortunate pleasure of manual transmission and all seasons. However we do get the pano roof and heated steering wheel standard !

Thanks guys I'm very fortunate to have received such a great deal. After driving 500+ miles on the tires they're not too bad, just wish they had a bit more traction that's all. In the process of trying to find mods that won't break the wallet at the moment. Installed a K&N drop in last weekend and that seemed to help throttle response a bit, and the turbo is more noticeable as well which is nice.

I need to find your Dealership, obviously math is challenging for them. List on your car from the Hyundai website with just the car mat addition is $28,375
Are you in a no sales tax State? 22k out the door, that Dealership lost money and not a little.

I was in contact with at least 3 different dealerships within a 50 mile range of me and they all quoted me via email $3-4 below MSRP which ranged anywhere from $25-26k. If you factor in down payment and other incentives you'd be pretty surprised the money you can save. Plus if you have good credit score of 700+ you're definitely in good shape like I was. The dealership I purchased the car from was one of the largest in the area, and yes they most definitely lost money on the deal and they were very clear about that. But with a dealership that moves as much cars as they do, I'm pretty sure they can afford to lose a bit of money and I'm sure it won't be the last time either. As for the $22K it was that hard to obtain, you just have to have a set # your head what you want to spend. If you can't get the deal you want, then you turn around and go somewhere else it's that simple.

Without sharing the break down of the deal and this talk about being the ultimate negotiator isn't particularly helpful. taxes vary greatly between states. Trade-ins instantly muddy the waters.
