Brad Benson — Bad experience
Brad benson is not the right dealer in my experience dealing with them
1)They advertise as 30% off posted dealer price.I looked at Santa Fe and the dealer price is $36, 000. Wooooow what a scam. Roughly $8000 above MSRP. If you ask about 30%, they will say that you don't qualify because you are not from military.
2)The sales associate told all kinds of stories when i asked about the manufacturer rebates, I insisted hard and sat there arguing for one hour until i got the manufacturer rebates
3)Sales associates tried to steer me towards monthly payments which is a big scam by itself. Oh by the way DON'T walk into the dealership without cash or a preapproved loan.
4)Sales person asked me to sign on the paper that I am buying a car today just to hypnotize me as i was negotiating with him too much and he plays all sorts of tricks like
a) How would you drive to work if you don't buy the car today?.. yaa right
b) Somebody walks by and says, if you don't buy the car, there is one more customer who likes this car and he will buy it. I stood up and said Give it him and tried to walk away and my sales assoicate came back begging to come back to the negotiation table.
6)DON'T take your kids to the dealership.Look for friends who can negotiate well, atleast 2 friends.Be prepared to negotiate atleat 2-3 hours on the price, so DON'T GO with the KIDS and have 2 FRIENDS with you.
7) Don't tell about trade-in until you are satisfied with the price. Do your research on trade-in and don't trade-in until you get a good deal on trade-in. You can always sell by yourself.
8) Most important don't get into the discusssion of monthly payments. Negotiate until you get a good price, Avoid taking loan from them.
9)Research on the internet on hyuundai's website about the manufacturer rebates, the MSRP, financing information and take a printout and be ready to show the printouts, as I was shown OLD printouts which had different information.. Wooow what a scam.
10)FINALLY BE PREPARED TO WALK AWAY FROM THE STORE IF YOU DON'T LIKE INTO WHAT YOU ARE GETTING. There are other hyundai dealers too. Have a Plan-B.
First time car buyers beware, You have no idea of how dealership plays tricks. Better go with a person with enough experience.
