have been looking for a specific color & trans combo (white 6spd), which is what is making this so difficult. i'd really rather not pay over MSRP but at this point i'm willing to go 1-2k over. i have a few dealers i'm going to reach out to monday morning (FL & TX), fingers crossed.
good luck! Dont give up and settle for something else. You'll just hate yourself even more that you didnt just keep at it. This just tells me that the car thats perfect for you will show up soon. And you'll be so much happier when it happens.

Did you happen to see THIS one in Conroe, TX?
White, 6-speed, bumper doesn't look like it's drilled yet. I live in the Houston area and was able to pick up my 2022 VN at MSRP (wasn't at this dealer though) so it can be done without additional markups if the dealer is willing to do so.

Had a laugh over the weekend. Stopped in at the local dealership to check on the Kona N and Elantra N. They had a DCT/black on the floor; 45K plus dealer sticker.:ROFLMAO:(n) 10K over MSRP!🤪🇺🇸
Thank God we bought when we did.

With new inventory being as low as it is right now dealerships who used to make money marking up a little but were moving a lot of units are now resorting to marking up a lot on the few units they have. I swear the car market is completely backwards right now.

Stopped at the dealer I got my N. The Sales Manager guy said they had 12 new cars. 12.

But one of them was a brand new off the truck Santa Cruz Limited in blue. They were selling it at MSRP. I almost pulled the trigger, but I want the green.

I know and they’re the largest dealership in the state, including Arizona. Their markup is called; Fair Market Value. Makes you really think about dealing with them again. Might go back to Audi with a TTRS or a Lexus RCF.
I'd go Audi all day. Got a big soft spot for the four rings, was my first car. Would love an rs3

There is a blue 6MT in Fort Meyers FL, they have it listed "internet price" for 29k. A friend went in and did all the paperwork and credit app to be told 45k with "dealer adjustment" that was non negotiable. So beware. I know you want a white 6MT, but apparently so does everyone else.

That's a really good point. Always negotiate the "out the door" price before you ever step foot in a dealership. I can't tell you how many times a dealer has tried to pad the numbers on the back end and I didn't see it coming. It's frustrating and wastes everybody's time. If you have the MSRP amount then you can easily add up sales tax,title fees, licensing fees and reasonable doc fees and you will have a ballpark figure of where the out the door price needs to be. If a dealer isn't willing to give you a final total before coming in to look at the vehicle then I would find another dealer.

Yeah California dealerships are notorious for doing this. Its gotten to the point where i refuse to go in unless they give me an OTD price quote through email. That way i have proof that they are going to give me that price.

New to this forum....I just bought my New '22 DCT in white for MSRP. I Asked 4 dealers in the area for the out-the-door price through email and only one would sell me the car for MSRP. I had to drive 2 hours out to west Texas for it.

One local dealer told me they wouldn't sell it without the $2K markup because he wont be getting more until 3-5 months from now...but its just sitting on his showroom and has been for the past 6 weeks. :rolleyes:

His stupidity and loss. They will sell it but below MSRP in a month or so.

New vehicles are now being released from manufacturers especially Kia/Hyundai and the chip shortage that caused most of this, will be on the back burner shortly.

I'm also getting a little frustrated. I live in the Southeast and they're getting scarce at the moment. There was one in the area but it was priced at 40k! I got a quote on another one and it was listed at 35-ish but then when I got the OTD quote it shot up to 42k total (everything included). I've had two dealerships say they'll get me a quote and never emailed back so far. These cars go and they go QUICK. If you want one, then move on it like immediately. That's what I've learned the few weeks I've looked at them.

How many more moths do you think I will have to be able to purchase a new one? I'm also passively interested in the Elantra N as well.

yep, it's nuts right now.

after a month of aggressivly searching for this car, i gave up. it was just too energy draining to keep contacting dealerships and getting a runaround checking to see if the car is even still for sale and how much over they're charging for it (and some dealers completely not willing to sell to someone out of state). i'm going to instead fix a couple of pressing issues my scion has and keep driving it and try to wait for the GR corolla.

fwiw i was able to find a used white 2020 N a couple of weeks ago in a nearby city, however the dealer was on some good drugs as they wanted as much for a 2 year old 20k mile car with the front end paint in very rough shape (looked like it drove through a meteor shower) as what one should cost new, nevermind the warranty being sliced in half for the 2nd owner. between the aggravation of trying to buy this car, reading about how generally awful the hyundai dealership experience is (which i agree with so far), the extremely thin paint and other random misc. issues, i'm done. best of luck to all still in search of the car.
