    I'm from New Jersey, Mr Brad Benson here is offering me 30% of his sticker on the Tuscon i want.. Limited with the premium package.. sticker is $30,400, plus minus few minor options.

    Which would make my purchase price somewhere in the $21,500 range.

    Minus a trade which i have.. and any down payments..

    Afterall said and done i'm looking to finance something around 18 - 19 K.. with around 2,500 out of pocket.

    sounds to good to be true.. is there a catch?

    if there is one i will post here in a week or so... getting down there in the next few weeks.
  • What's the saying..........if it smells like a duck and walks like a duck....

    Something doesn't smell good on that deal. I've seen deals like that on eBay and it's a scam.
    I researched my new Tucson purchase to death and I'll tell you there are no deals like that to be had.
    In fact, Hyundai generally has one of the least markups of any manufacturer.

    If you walk out the door with a discount of $8900 off sticker price like you suggest, please let us know as that dealer would have lines out the door for potential buyers.

    This is direct from their website...

    Receive 30% off dealer posted price

    Note that this is not the MSRP! If I remember postings from others that have had dealings with Brad Benson, that 30% off is only good on their posted price which is MSRP plus a bunch of unnecessary expensive addons.

    Here's a link to reviews of Brad Benson on this site...

    Then what's the point?
    You want to deal with someone like this?

    I want an honest dealer, honest salesman and an honest price......not someone that's pulling a bunch of crap.
    The reviews you posted a link to tell the story just like I thought.
    Places like that ought to be put out of business!

    Good luck. LOL.

    First off, no car that i want in the lot.
    Second, no respect, none at all trying to shove a wrong color and used at that vehicle.
    Then he was shocked that i wasn't interested.

    Waste of time.. every question got answered with a "don't worry about it"

    best of all.. that used car he was shoving.. $39,999.00 special.
    5,000 miles..

    at a loss for words..

    complete scum

    I have searched in the DFW area with a 75 mile radius and the inventory on Edmunds shows only 7 Tucsons 4x4. Since I wanted a GLS and not a Limited that further limits it to 4 in that radius. None in the color that I want. I am not sure if Tucson 4x4 is not in demand or is it that Hyundai is keeping a tight supply of it?
  • ............and your surprised by that?
    30% off.........sounds like an infomercial.

    How these dealers survive is beyond me........"sucker born every minute" must still be true.

    I think it's two-fold........
    1. They are in high demand
    2. Hyundai is having a hard time producing as many as needed.

    My dealer told me since the new design Tucson came out in 2010 they have had a hard time getting enough deliveries to meet demands.
    I don't think Hyundai has the capacity to keep up.

    My dealer had a tough time getting me a 2011 silver GLS AWD but he came through and got me one in the color I wanted within 2 weeks.
    He searched nationwide and intercepted one going to another dealer.
    Best part is it had more options than I wanted but he gave it to me for the agreed price. Nice!
    If the dealer is willing to do some legwork he can get the one you want.

    Right now my dealer has 10 Tucsons.........4 of which are AWD GLS models.

    Hi,

    I'm looking to purchase a 2011 Tucson GLS AWD in CT. Anyone have recent information on prices paid or best dealers in the area to negotiate with?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am shopping around for different crossover SUV's and it seems like Hyundai's Tucson might not be as popular seeing that the last post was over a month ago for "Buying Experience". I was debating between a Honda CRV and Toyota RAV-4 but decided to give Hyundai a try for once. I wanted to go for the Kia Sorento but I am still a bit nervous since they haven't been around as long.

    I got a quote recently for a 2011 Tucson GLS (AWD) for $24,500 (including all fees, taxes, etc). I had emailed at least 8 dealers and no one seems to really want to work with me. I don't know if it's because Hyundai's become more popular due to Toyota's recent rise in prices or whatnot but I'm finding it difficult to haggle. The 1st quote I got from one dealership seems to be the best one... and the other dealers seem unwilling to work with that price. Could I have been lucky enough to get a great price 1st time around?

    Thoughts?
  • Just because this particular forum is pretty dead doesn't mean Tucson's aren't selling...........
    There are other Hyundai/Tucson forums that are quite busy.
    The format/setup here doesn't keep people coming back.......it's quite an archaic forum setup.

    I would recommend personally going to several dealers to work with them on pricing.............that way they know you are serious and looking to purchase.
    A lot of places don't like messing around to much over the Internet. It's probably because the vast majority of the Internet inquiries aren't going to materialize into anything.

    Had my Tucson GLS AWD for almost 3 months now and couldn't be happier.
    Good luck...

    I got a 2011 Limited AWD Tucson with the premium package the other day I love it. I used the Hyundai Circle program and paid $27,600 before taxes and registration.
  • Got a 2012 Tucson GLS from Harbor Hyundai in Long Beach today for $21,900 + TTL (~10%).MSRP IS $23,340. Also got 2.69% financing for 60m w/ them through Chase. I think they bought the rate down just to earn my financing as I have preapproved from CU for 2.9%. Very smooth no b.s. sales process. Excellent customer service.
  • I have a chance to trade a 2010 Elantra 11,500 miles for a 2011 Tuson GLS AWD for a lease of $275 plus tax which is 10% so final payment would be $300/month. I think the price for the Tuson is $24,800. I owe about $11000 on the Elantra, I think they are giving me about $14000 for the Elantra.
    Any thoughts if this is a good deal?
  • I just Leased a 2012 Tucson GLS AWD. Purchase price $24840. Trade profit was $3.2k used as down payment. Paid first payment and title and stuff $595. Net capitalized cost was $22245.00 Somehow Total capitalized cost reduction was $4079.
    Anyway total payment for 36months @12K/yr is $298.99. This includes the 10% tax the state wants.
    I can purchase the car at end of lease for $15152.
    Any idea if this is a good lease? I know I paid MSRP but I did get the $3.2k profit on my trade which other dealers would only give me about 1-2K profit.

    Anybody have any experience with buying a Tucson in Northern NJ?

    What were some quotes that you have gotten for Tucsons? Specifically the GLS FWD or AWD. Thanks

    In October 2011 I purchased a 2012 FWD Tucson Limited without premium package at Team Hyundai Mall of Georgia in Buford. I really wanted a sunroof, but wasn't necessarily interested in paying for the premium package, plus there were no vehicles available with that package at the time. The dealer had the color I wanted in a Limited, so they agreed to install a regular sunroof (not panoramic) that is covered under warranty. I love the car, the sunroof is awesome and I got to keep the roof racks too. Paid $24,300 incl. sunroof, plus tax and title. Got what I felt was a fair price on my trade-in and financed through Hyundai at 1.9% for 36 months. I'm not sure if this is the greatest deal ever, but I'm very comfortable with it and so far no problems whatsoever with the Tucson.
