Just a note from an expensive mistake. Had'nt bought a new car in years and am on a fixed income and thought that since gas was going up, it would be a good time to do it. Went in and spoke to a salesman and bought a car at Thornton Road Hyundai near Atlanta, Georgia. Everything was up front until we got to the end of the purchase. Found that they were asking $600 in documentation fees. (Was not told about the documentation fees until the end of the paperwork.) I even asked the manager about this and he said the $600 amount was required by all Hyundai dealers in the area and that he could'nt change it. Since I'm a honest person, I took his word on it and completed the purchase. Now I'm finding something out that was totally different than what the manager told me.
I'm finding out that the those fees were inflated compared to others and that he could have reduced the fees if he had wanted to. For the most part, those fees are totally profit. (I found that documentation fees in GA should'nt cost more than $100 in reality) I admit that this is my mistake but I wanted to make sure no one else makes the same mistake. Remember to always do your homework, talk to friends, use these type of forums, and research the internet to find the best deal. Don't be taken advantage of. I wish I had did more research on this before my purchase. Of course after this, I want be going back to Thornton Road Hyundai to do business.
