Companies such as iGlobal put those stupid stickers on each body panel of the car as a security feature, but CBC actually did a report on these that they are a scam from the dealers to make quick coin. CBC also went to surrounding police stations to ask about the iGlobal company and they stated they have never heard of it before. Search it up if you're curious.I think in Canada, the "security package" might be VIN etching? I have heard others talk about this, but haven't experienced it here in the US. As far as I know it is not required, but something dealers try to do in order to jack up their profit. Same thing with extended warranties. I would look REAL CLOSE at the fine print on the extended warranty. Is it through Hyundai or an aftermarket company? What is covered, what is the deductible and is the deductible per visit, per repair, etc, is the warranty transferable, etc? Do you need to go to your dealer for warranty work, or can you go elsewhere? Also, extended warranty costs vary greatly and can certainly be negotiated if you feel the benefit and the peace of mind is worth the added cost.
It is a huge waste of money. My wife just got hit with that ploy on her Sonata. It's crap like that you get ripped of with and they put it on the the cars that have the options most people want. So when you bargain down on the price a few hundred, they are still making a big profit.Hi new here we pick up our GT tomorrow. I noticed on the bill it stated Security Package $489. We got the extended warranty and rim and tire packages. Is the security package part of the extended warranty.....or did I get ripped off.
