I too purchased from New Port Richie Hyundai at no markup last April.
I wish I could have worked with my local dealer. One of the biggest car dealerships in Arkansas is charging a $10,000 mark up on new palisades. This makes is well worth driving 5 hours to Dallas to purchase the vehicle for no mark up.Best to work with a local dealer if you can. By the time you get through travel/shipping and whatever else, you will have lots of unanticipated costs. If you have a trade-in, see if you can get them to increase that some, so the total outlay to you is less. I got them to increase the trade-in value 3K for my Lincoln MKT towards my Palisade last month, and the initial offer was nearly what I paid for the car I traded after driving it for two years.
They are offering crazy money for trades these days.
I called DeMontrond Hyundai of Texas City yesterday. They advised that they are doing a 3K mark up...Don't waist your timePurchased my Palisade Limited from DeMontrond Hyundai in Texas City and paid under MSRP. They were the only dealer in the greater Houston area that was not charging me a crazy mark-up, dealer add-ons, or "Market Adjustment". Definitely expand your search and even consider making your purchase from a different city and or state if you have to.
I am in the Houston area and since 2020 I bought 3 Hyundai cars and 2 of them were during the covid era. No markups on any of them - just MSRP.
Your results may vary but my most recent purchase was just few days ago. Got a Santa Cruz at MSRP from Sterling McCall - ask for Lisa Priest
That's who we worked with through a referral and she is awesome
I got my Palisade in June 2020 from North Freeway Hyundai and about 6 months before that my wife got a Tucson from there as well. No markups. I worked with Paul Clos on both.
Hope that helps
You made right choice. Telluride looks like an older Land Rover, inside and out...Palisade looks like the future...Not sure if this will be helpful or not, but in CT I found 2 dealers for sure selling at MSRP.
Brandfon Hyundai in New Haven, CT (where I bought my 2022 Limited last month)
Key Hyundai in Milford, CT
Both tried to sell the Simoniz GlassShied or whatever it was called, for $800-$1,000, but neither required it.
Meanwhile all of the KIA dealers I checked in the with area wanted on average of 5K markup. I liked the exterior of the Telluride better, but preferred the interior of the Palisade. The lack of stock on Tellurides, and the crazy markups on Telluride made my decision easier.
