Looks really Nice, More reason to black Vinyl the Bumper
Sigh...Black on Silver with hard line transitions. Ugh looks bad IMO. Maybe they'll have different model bumpers for the different trim styles? Oh well at least its coming soon 😑😐
Did they deduct the price (475) from the list price when it showed up?I got my 2023 Calligraphy in September and itt didn't come with the hitch as ordered. The salesman said he would notify me when the hiches are available, but haven't heard anything yet. The dealer sent me an email sayng they could install one when available for $785. It was $475 from the factory installed and should have come on the vehicle as ordered. I sent an email to Hyundai Customer service and stated my disappointment in their support on the issue and that I have missed several months of being able to trailer anything, especially my fishing boat. I asked if they would in good faith pay the difference in the hitch being installed by the dealer since they failed in their responsibility to provide it when ordered and they blew me off, saying they couldn't do that. And the hitches are still not available! Guess they really don't care much about us customers once they have our money! Some customer service to loyal customers! I hope Curt comes out with an aftermarket hitch soon so I can buy fro them.
They asked me if I wanted to pay the $475 when I picked it up and I asked if I were to do that, would they install the hitch and harness free when available. They said "NO", so had them deduct the $475 before paid. I continued to ask the dealer if they would cover it, but they also said "NO". Not a happy second time buyer!Did they deduct the price (475) from the list price when it showed up?
Thanks for the photos!
It is just unbelievable and inexcusable that they can't even give us some explanation or ETA for the new hitch and wiring harness!I recently bit the bullet and purchased a Curt hitch for my 2023 Palisade Calligraphy, because I have an end of year trip that requires a bike rack. I felt I had no choice. There was no info was forthcoming on a potential fix for the recall. Since my primary application doesn't involve towing, I decided against installing the wiring accessory for now.
The Curt unit cost me about $400 including install from a local trailer company (without electronics). The only downside is it sits below the bumper, instead of inside of it (like the OEM hitch supposedly does).
Once the fix is announced by Hyundai, I'll decide whether to swap it out for the new OEM hitch solution.
I was notified today my Calligraphy is in and ready to pick up. I sold my Jeep Grand Cherokee to buy this vehicle. The Jeep has a very nice hidden hitch and a cover to go over it when not in use. Very nice. But, I have a long drive to Canada that requires I have a hitch and this forum has made me furious. I'm a compliance officer by trade and have already written to the FTC about the sales practices described here. I was told point blank my vehicle would have a hidden hitch and it would be hidden behind the middle bumper panel, including 7 and 4 pin connectors. So, since no one here seems to know if that's happening tomorrow or in 5 years I assume I was lied to....and that's ridiculous. Shame on Hyundai and I may refuse delivery....make someone else's day who isn't expecting a tow hitch.
I agree, but I am fairly happy with the Curt hitch solution. It doesn't look bad. As I understand the OEM, the center section of the rear bumper would be replaced with a black rubber section that incorporates the hitch. The Curt hitch shown in photo below sits below the bumper and is relatively hidden. The advantage is a better looking rear bumper; the disadvantage being it sits lower, which might not be ideal for towing.It is just unbelievable and inexcusable that they can't even give us some explanation or ETA for the new hitch and wiring harness!
