Hyundai Tucson Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • guyfguyf Posts: 456
    Hi, $22,500. is a good but not outstanding price. They are basically giving away the transport and preparation which usually is around $1,500. $25,500. is way too high.

    I paid $21,000. for the same model, a 2005 last fall. At the time Hyundai was offering a $1,500. incentive so the price I paid is similar to yours, even tough the 2006 is $700. more expensive than the 2005.

    If you are not in a hurry, you can wait for January, Hyundai may offer more incentives then. Another possibility is to reply to the dealer with the $22.5K offer and offer him the $22K. at the very end of December. He'll probably take it.

    Good luck :D
  • A Tucson is one of the cars I am considering when I purchase a new vehicle in January. Looking at Edmund's TMV for both the 4 cylinder GL and the 6 cylinder GLS automatics, it appears their TMV is just a few hundred below MSRP. Can this be right? Are people really paying just a few hundred dollars off MSRP for a Hyundai?
    I live in Central Texas.

    I was really impressed with the safety features and the ride of the GLS I drove, but I don't want to pay near MSRP for a car that I know will depreciate worse than a domestic. I don't think Hyundais are bad cars, and the warranty impresses me, but I can get a better discount on a Toyota!

    What have people recently paid OTD for a plain automatic GL or GLS? I don't want any options really other than auto tranny.

    Read the previous posts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I have. Many of them seem to be Canadian buyers, none of them appeared to be in Texas or the South U.S., and very few of them were for plain, 2WD, base model GL or GLS Tucsons. I don't need leather, sunroof, etc.

    Thanks for your advice...I finally pulled the trigger yesterday and feel good about the deal (at the end of the day, I guess thats really what matters :) )

    I got them to 22,300 and they threw in some floor I am pretty happy with that...not sure if I could have gotten much more taken off if I were to spend a few more hours haggling.
  • guyfguyf Posts: 456
    Good deal! Enjoy your Tucson! ;)
  • It appears that getting at least $2,000 off the sticker price listed on the Hyundai web site for a 2006 vehicle(4 cylinder, auto, 2WD)is reasonable. I know of one dealer that will sell a vehicle at this delivered price. Of course, taxes and fees paid directly to motor vehicles for registration are extra.
  • There are currently 3+ rebates on the 2005 Hyundai Tucson that are good through 1/3:
    2005 model Tucson = -1000
    Owner loyalty = -500
    Finance through Hyundai = -500
    (Some dealers also offer a 200 rebate for purchase through Internet)

    Does anybody know what will happen to those rebates after 1/3?

  • hi
    I'm in the process of buying a 2006 Tucson GLS with the sunroof, I think it's called the PREMIUM PACKAGE. the dealer wants to charge me
    $600- destination cost ( which I'm ok with) Prep -
    $500 and
    Hyundai Advertising cost $500.

    are these two illegitimate costs on a new car. I got the car $21K plus 1K in rebates. total cost of Car plus registration and NYS tax (8.75%) and another $45 dealer charge would be about 24K.

    Does this sound correct?

    I haven't gotten a new car in over 11 years
    My last car was a 95 Saturn, brought on Nov of 94. So it's been a while
  • quick question was this dealer near the VNB?

    I too got a 20K offer with the following
    $493 prep costs
    $500 advertising fee ( which in our conversation he started by saying it was already included, when I laughed out loud at him, he re-tracted the comment saying it was a slip, he had meant to say not included)

    I'm looking at a Tucson GLS - 4wheel with Premium pkg
    my total is coming to 24K after tazs and fees

    is this a deal or am I being taken for a ride
  • I am looking at a 2005 LX 2WD, and I was e-mailed a quote of $20,930, less $1000 rebate and less $500 if I finance with Hyundai (likely will). That's $19,430 not counting tax and title. Am going to counter with an offer to buy at $19,000 even. Thoughts?

    Tucson tests did not include rollover. So across the board 5 stars is really only across 2/3 of the board.

    I was offered a 2006 Tuscon LX 2wd automatic transmission last nite at a dealership in NY for $16,000 flat. Just add tax and title.

    Good deal?
  • dripgossdripgoss Posts: 7
    hey reechz, do you mean a 2005 LX or a 2006 Limited? To the best of my knowledge, the LX was only on the 05 and the limited is the top line of the 06 models...
  • tvandenhtvandenh Posts: 1
    I'm new at this so please forgive my ignorance. I am looking at a fully loaded 2006 Limited 2WD - when I say loaded add sunroof, mats, etc. nothing out of the ordinary. The dealer called and told me the price would be $24,265 which is obviously the MSRP (list) with nothing discounted. What is reasonable to assume they could do on this vehicle? I have seen TRV's quoted around $22,265 - is $1500 to 2000 off MSRP reasonable to negotiate? I was quite surprised he quoted me MSRP and thought I would jump. Thanks for your guidance.

    Looking to buy a new 2006 Tuscson GL 2WD automatic ! Anybody out there have any tips on discount dealerships in the NJ/NY/Eastern PA area that are selling close to invoice. The invoice price on this type of Tuscon is $17,654 and that doesn't include the $500 rebate Hyundai is offering this month.

    The MSRP on this base model is $18,745 (about $1,100) over invoice.

    What would be a good purchase price from a bast model like this ? Thanks !

    try the hyundai dealer in Paramus,NJ. I do not know the name of it but I think they have lower prices. I think it is on Route 17.
  • pas914pas914 Posts: 14
    It may be a little late to ask now, but I am curious to hear what you think of the deal I got on a 2006 Tucson. It is a 6cyl, 4wd limited edition with roof rack+cross bars, leather interior (with heated seats), elec climate ocntrol, 6cd in dash changer, sub woofer+amp, side rails/steps, etc etc -- fully loaded except for the sunroof and floor mats. After all rebates and incentives, the "out the door cost" with tax, tags, and misc fees was $21,639. I am still not entirely clear why I paid for some of the BS "document fees" and "glass etching", but that (along with $1200 tax and $249 4-yr reg) is what got me from 19,xxx to the final cost of 21,600.

    I thought I was getting a pretty good deal when I signed the papers a few hours ago, but after getting home and reviewing the agreements, I am wondering if I got duped with some of these nickel and dime fees that were apparently thrown in. The MSRP on the sticker was 24,085 and the est invoice cost on was around 21,500 (WITHOUT tax and tags) .. I welcome others opinions - good deal or not?

    Help!! I am shopping for 2006 Tucson 2-wheel dr. LX with a list price of $24,265. With no rebate because I can only get 4.9% financing and $500 customer loyalty, the dealer's offer is $21,628.34 plus finance charge for 60 mos. of $1069.88 or $22,688.11. Dealer says I can't get rebate (1000) plus customer loyalty (500) and 4.9%. Is this true? Are they giving me a good deal. Oh, Limited has these options: cupholder pad, carpeted floor mats, mud guards, sunroof wind deflector, roof cross rails. Also, should I take the $1,000 rebate or the 4.9% financing from HMFC? Should I go for it? HELP!
  • chyannachyanna Posts: 9
    Hi! Ok, the dealer is correct in saying that you have to choose between the $1000 rebate or the special financing with the customer loyalty. It is either one or the other and that comes from the main Hyundai site.

    Edmunds has a great Financial Calculator that compares Low APR’s to Cash Back. If you go to the “New Car” section, then to “Financing” you’ll find it towards the middle of the page. Plug in all the numbers and it will show you which will save you the most money.

    Is the$21,628.34 with the $1000 rebate and before tax, tags, fees etc?

    Or is the $22,688.11 the “Out the door” with all the tax, tags, fees etc included the special financing and customer loyalty?
  • 19221922 Posts: 5
    The $21,628.34 is without the $1,000 rebate and loyalty but includes the title and sales tax; not tags. They say there are no doc fees included.

    The $22,688 is "out-the-door with 4.9% financing."

    Thanks, I'm going to go to Financial Calculator.
  • chyannachyanna Posts: 9
    From what I can tell, and using my zip code for the invoice, $22,688 "out-the-door” is a good deal considering that a fully loaded 2006 Limited with every option goes for roughly 22,430 without tax, title, tags, fees ect. So it would seem you are getting it below invoice.

    I brought my 2006 Platinum Green Limited 4WD with every option except for mud flaps $200 below invoice and went with the 4.9% finance. I was pleased with the price, didn’t have to pay any extra bogus fees that I hear about and enjoyed the whole car buying experience. It really helps to do your homework.

    I absolutely LOVE my Tucson and do not worry the MPG will go up as the engine breaks in. ;)

    Good luck! Let us know what your final decision is.
  • 19221922 Posts: 5
    The dealer has the Tuscon fully loaded listed at $20,881, the rebate price. On the calulation sheet, he lists $20,881 plus $1,000 rebate for a total of $21,881, adds 3.5% sales tax and title fee for a total price of $22,665. THEN, HE DEDUCTS $1,000 REBATE AND BALANCE DUE IS $21,665.34 "out-the-door" plus 6.5% financing =$28,705.

    If rebate price is $20,881, why is he adding the $1,000 into calulations making the price $21,881 which he adds tax and title,THEN, he deducts #1,000? Does this make sense?

    Then, I said I wanted the 4.9% financing and $500 loyalty with no rebate or 21,881 plus 3.5% sales and 16.50 title =$22,663.50 -$500 loyalty=22163.50 "out-the-door" times 6.5% financing for 60 mos. =$27,592.

    TMV said take the cash!
  • 19221922 Posts: 5
    I'm looking at a 2WD. Compared to your 4WD, please give me your opinion. Thanks.
  • chyannachyanna Posts: 9
    I may be wrong, but technically the car cost $21,881, which is what you are buying the car for, therefore you pay tax on that price. The $1000 is “cash back” giving to you after the deal, which of course you put onto the car along with any other down payment. I’m not familiar with how they work so I’m guessing. When you find out, let me know.

    I personally went with the lower APR. You might want to ask the folks over in the Sonata folder about how their rebates were calculated since many of them recently brought cars with the $2500 rebates.
  • Just bought new tucson gl w/ air and auto package. Dealer invoice is 25055.00 for the vehicle (all canadian dollars here of course) My wife received 500 off for the graduate program and i paid 22020.00 plus freight and tax's. came to 27000 on the road. Taxs up here are high yes and there are extra tax's on air conditioners and such. Got 5 year loan at 0% percent which is pretty amazing. I haggled for a while just want to know how i did. All i wanted was a fair price and i think i did o.k. wadaya think? msrp + taxs up here the vehicle is priced at about 29100.00 or so. 07 are 1 week away so i thought it was good time to buy.
  • chyannachyanna Posts: 9
    It sounds like you got yourself a good deal! That 0% for 60mos is awesome too. Enjoy you Tucson. I know I love mine. :D
  • Thx...question to picking up vehicle tomorrow and was planning on driving 400 miles to ohio the following day. Reading that its not good to drive new car at same speed for extended time as debris builds up in the cylinder and may cause a groove where piston is stopping. people recommend varying the speeds. what is hyundai's recommended technique. what have you guys done. My last car was an acura and they said car didnt need break in period. I still took it easy the first couple thousand miles. wadaya think?
  • chyannachyanna Posts: 9
    This is from the Tucson manual:

    During the First 1,200 Miles (2,000 Km)
    No formal "break-in" procedure is required with
    your new Hyundai. However, you can contribute
    to the economical operation and durability of
    your Hyundai by observing the following recommendations
    during the first 1,200 miles (2,000
    o Don't drive faster than 55 MPH (88 km/h). (This is a tough one to follow.)

    o While driving, keep your engine speed (rpm,
    or revolutions per minute) between 2,000
    rpm and 4,000 rpm.

    o Use moderate acceleration. Don't start
    quickly or depress the accelerator pedal

    o For the first 200 miles (300 km), try to avoid
    hard stops.

    o Don't lug the engine (in other words, don't
    drive so slowly in too high a gear that the
    engine "bucks"-shift to a lower gear).

    o Whether going fast or slow, vary your speed
    from time to time.

    o Don't let the engine idle longer than 3 minutes
    at one time.

    o Don't tow a trailer during the first 1,200 miles

    I pretty much followed their suggestions with exception to the “Don't let the engine idle longer than 3 minutes at one time.” :blush: I had to run into the store, left my family in the car for 5 minutes with the AC on. It was 101 degrees that day, I didn't want them to melt.
