Yep, the Mazda's power didnt do it for us, loved the exterior styling, but the inside was dated and too tight. We found a 2018 Audi Q7 Prestige with low miles for $45k nearby. The Hyundai dealership wouldnt let us take their Palisade off the lot to test drive.. "worth too much". Hyundai needs to retrain some of their dealers.
Hyundai dealerships dont train their salespeople to do that......thats a lazy salesperson!

Hyundai dealers are independent businesses. Hyundai does not train them on how to sell vehicles. What the dealer is saying is that if you don't want a Palisade with a short drive around their lot, someone else will.

I can understand their concern, because some people are going to do 0-60 testing just for kicks during an unsupervised test drive. Dealers right now can only get a limited number of Palisades, and don't want to sell any of them as demos, because they cannot charge a premium price for a demo.
Not for nothing, but you have no clue what you're speaking of! All Hyundai sales personnel receive dealership based training IN ADDITION TO Hyundai Sales training which focuses on how to present and sell a car the Hyundai way and achieve your STAR CARD incentives. This INCLUDES test drives BEYOND THE BORDERS OF THE PARKING LOT.

Orange County, CA... $1500 off MSRP... It had accessories pre-installed. So pretty much MSRP i guess. Hyper-White Limited AWD. My first choice. Impossible to find AWD in OC that don't have $5k mark up. Funny thing was someone was trying to buy the car while we were doing paperwork. Our salesman called us the day it arrived and went down to sign. The other guy said he pay $1000 over what we would pay to give him the car... wow.. ppl that desperate??!
Not desperate, it's just even paying $4-$6k over MSRP they're still a better deal that the other manufacturers at MSRP. Used cars are also worth about 20% more than they were a year ago so if you're trading in the market adjustment is cancelled out by the increased value on trade ins. Realistically Hyundai and Kia priced these things too low for how good they are and how much they have against the competition. Go drive a comparable Explorer and it's $10k more and the Atlas feels super cheap compared to it. The Highlander is nice but much smaller and looks pretty lame.

I just picked up a hyper white/black calligraphy in Cerritos CA for 1k under MSRP I’m family friends with the manager of the dealership and it took him 45 days to find the color combo that I wanted and I’m pretty sure he gave me a good deal considering the market right now. We looked at a Telluride but laughed our way out of the dealership when they had a 12k markup over MSRP. I had a Mercedes before but needed to get something larger due to our growing family and I was pleasantly surprised with how nice these are and all the features it had.

Wow I feel ashamed with everyone paying below msrp. I paid 5k OVER msrp for white Caligraphy. But I am in Seattle area and dealers around here want 5-10k over msrp.

I got mine for the MSRP. The sale price started 2k below the MSRP and then "thanks to" dealer installed add-ons it went back to 44300.

I've got SEL AWD with convenience and premium packages.

As for the dealer add-ons I ended up getting window tint, anti-theft protection, some paint protection, and windshield treatment. The manufacturer was kind enough to include only a few "mandatory" accessories such as cargo net, cargo tray, floor mats, and rear bumper applique. Now, I was not too happy about these "add-ons" and was prepping for the sale price of 42500 which included dealer discount and some internet coupons which I was really happy about. I could have done a bit more negotiation and decline some of the add-ons at the time of paying the deposit (about 4 weeks before delivery). I didn't know that window tint, paint protection, and anti-theft packages will be applied by the dealer without my knowledge and when I came to pick up the vehicle it was too late to get anything off.

Overall I'm quite happy since the window tint and windshield treatment are looking good so far. And the most important part...I didn't have to pay 10K over MSRP and that makes me feel even happier.

Shop around if you can and don't be afraid of checking in neighboring states.

I'm hearing you can't register the car in california unless you have the title on hand. If you where able to register this how where you able to?
I just started the registration process while waiting for the title which I expect to get in 3-6 weeks or sooner - was told it was mailed to me from AZDOT. In CA you need to pay fees within several days of purchasing the vehicle to avoid penalties. A very nice lady at the DMV told me that I had 20 days to register my new vehicle and of course she said that without the title I would not be able to complete the process. So I just did the vehicle verification check at the DMV and then paid all the fees. I've got a partial registration application that is not a permit and I will be able to complete it after I get the title and do the smog check. Overall it took me 2 DMV visits to sort it out and start the process.

Don’t feel bad about that. I’m in NC and have called dealers all over the state. No one will sell me a limited or calligraphy without $2/$3K ADM or more added on. This is especially true for specific color combos and the beige interiors.
