We are in the market for an inexpensive small sedan with decent gas mileage for everyday tasks. I am looking around and some people are so unrealistic. The problem is – they make other people unrealistic too. You can get a brand new one for 16K but the 2 year used one with 40K miles is $14K. Or Dick Hannah Kia listed a 2004 Hyundai Elantra for $12900 (what is wrong with them???).
The problem is you can get a brand new one for pretty much that price with the $1000 incentive. The problem is dealer prices are negotiable and jacked up WAY WAY high, sure, but private sellers look at these prices and jack up their prices. However, they also do not negotiate. Then reason sets in and they end up selling at a lower price (the market value) after months of not being able to sell it but too late for me. By the way, I will definitely skip Dick Hannah – why spend my money with such scammers. Dealers are not necessarily the ones with a conscience but I don’t have to shop at a one that is so obviously out there to get you.
Sorry for the rant!
