Does anyone know of a dealer ANYWHERE in the country that doesn't slap on extra stuff to jack up the price. All I want is a "clean" car with basic pricing. Ok, I may accept widow tint, but paint protectant.... puleeze!

I am willing to fly just about anywhere to get that .

Any dealer suggestions?

Consider yourself lucky if all you get is "extra stuff" to jack up the price.

In my area, dealers are adding between $2,500 and $3,000 of pure additional profit, calling it "market value adjustment" or something like that.

I refuse to pay more than MSRP, which is why I am still Niro-less.

Good luck!

My dealer in Turnersville, NJ did not have any add ons to my Touring. I paid extra for all weather mats and the cargo tray but it came with no pin stripes, window tint, paint protection or anything else.

Cool...but that would be a big drive home for me.

Nothing extra when I bought (Rusty Wallace Dealer in Knoxville) in FEB. Except the $595 service charge I did not pay attention to on the final contract. GROAN

That said, I was in their for first Service at 6000 miles and looking around - I saw some extra adjustments on some cars (was not looking at NIRO - just walking around). I commented to a salesmen that walked by and got a "Some places add more."

OK THEN, GUESS IT IS OK. Like Heck !!! Nothing like capitalistic greed.

Have decided to delay any possible purchases for a year and a half, but hope this thread about dealers and adding extras will continue. It will be good to know when the time comes.

I should add that a dealer recently agreed to take off all extra costs, but it still is not in my desired price range.

By agreeing to take off all extra costs that they tack on to the MSRP, I guess some dealers think potential buyers will be lulled into believing they're getting a great deal by paying JUST MSRP. Never mind that Niros in some parts of the country apparently sell for thousands LESS than MSRP, at least according to many posts here.

Sorry, Kia dealers, but I'm not playing your games. You could sell me a Niro today at a fair price, but I'll wait until they're no longer so much in demand that you can overcharge for them.

Who knows, maybe something better will come along by then...

Ferguson Kia Broken Arrow Oklahoma (the very best..we've bought 5 Kia from them in 10 years) Most awarded service dept in the State ...but that doesnt help you in Arizona. I bet you can get these guys down in a touring edition for 25K.

Actually, if I were ready to buy a car and they were legit about that $21,825 LX, I would fly there and have nice road trip home. Thanks for the tip.

These guys are very legit....Call and ask for Brennan (nephew in law) ....My other Nephew Steve Hill is the General Manager of the entire GM/Subaru/Kia Dealership....tell them your a friend of Steve's Uncle and you'll be treated like Royalty ;)

I obtained a TrueCar deal with Luther Kia in Minnesota with only a $100 document fee, nothing else added. Price was $26100 for white EX with Sunroof/Advanced Tech Package.

I will definitely keep them in mind when and if I decide to buy a Kia. It would probably be about a year and a half before I do.

I would still try locally first and if they fail me, I will have someone to fall back on.

I had good luck with Larry Spradley in Pueblo, CO, working with Jay. Their only extra was a less than $600 dealer handling fee, but they also gave me 3 years of an anti-theft vehicle locator service. I had been looking at an identical Niro seen on TRUECar in Phoenix, but was technically used with 3K miles for less and 5 months older, but when that dealership added on the mandatory paint protectant, tinting, etc, I wasn't really getting such a great deal (and I never got them to show the TRUECar price in their math, they were always $725 higher, even though they assured me they would honor the price). Since I looked into getting the "used" car shipped from Phoenix to Denver, that was looking like about $500-$600 (search: auto-transport quote). You will always have to pay the taxes where the car "lives", so that amount is fixed, but if you don't have so many add-ons, you pay less in tax, too. An out-of-state dealer may not have the local taxes in their price, but you will still pay it one way or the other. If you can avoid the $1100 mandatory add-ons, the transport fee could make sense. I feel Larry Spradley was fair, transparent and honest with everything - and they even delivered my car to Denver, gratis! I did purchase some warranty add-ons, but that was at my discretion and no pressure and subsequent to the agreed price.

lol, "mandantory" paint protectorant, tinting. That's the first I've heard of that. The tinting comes right from the factory. Mine was the legal limit in my state, back windows and hatch are almost blackout shade. Driver/passenger windows tinted less. As far as undercoating/paint protectorant- there is no way I am going to let probably the lowest paid mechanic/worker spray anything on my car. The add on undercoatings often trap moisture and do more damage, same for paint protectorants. The rust proofing/paint coats have all the protection they need from the factory. Washing and occasional waxing keeps it protected.

I hate when dealerships do that, how they add on special dealership accessories and junk, and try to tack it on to the final car price.

If I buy a car in one state, but live in another, is there an extra fee or penalty?
thanks!
I live in NJ near Delaware and Delaware has no sales tax. It's great to buy large $ items like electronics but you can't avoid paying your state's sales tax no matter where you buy it. Whatever state it will be registered in is the sales tax they collect.
