      Current offer is:
      • Invoice minus 3% of MSRP
      • Less current consumer rebates ($1500 valued owner or competitive owner)
      • Less $250 bonus
      • $500 Costco cash card

      So, if I did the math correctly, you're looking at an even $29k + TTL for a base Genesis, not counting the $500.
      ($30,940 - $990 - $1500 - $250 + $800 destination)

      There are similar deals on the Veracruz — check out:

      That's a great deal, but alas I never liked the Genesis even after driving the 4.6 with tech pack

      Its more of a car-buying service I believe. They are acting as a middle-man doing the neogotiating.

      Wow, that's a great price. Sad that more people would rather buy a new Camcord than this, especially when both can be had for similar money when comparably equipped (e.g. loaded Camcord vs. Genesis 3.8 w/ Premium Plus Pkg. & Nav).

      They send you to local participating dealers who show you the pre-determined Costco pricing book. You either accept or reject the price -- no negotiation, no haggling, no let-me-talk-to-my-manager BS.

      Often, mfr-dealer incentives are automatically passed on to Costco customers, so there's extra benefit.

      I've bought/leased 4 cars through Costco's program.

      Our Costco always has a Hyundai or Cadillac parked in the entrance area. I should inquire if there is a Cadillac discount program as well.

      I really want my mom to buy one of these. Her G35 is nearly 8 years old and has seen better days. She's retiring in a couple months, so it'd be a nice gift... to herself. I can't afford to buy her a car =P

      Gotta at least get the leather dash, but you're still talking $32k or so.

      That's pretty amazing value. It's not even my type of car, but I bet my wife would fall for one.

      Yeah, I remember the first time I noticed a brand new sparkling Hyundai parked out front. It was a Santa Cruz "Limited".

      What at COSTCO is limited?!

      @ your last comment, but what the heck is a Santa Cruz? Some sort of Veracruz/Santa Fe hybrid?

      Really

      Yeah really. It's been nearly a year since I drove one. But I remember the steering being awful and lacking feel. Also as nice as you try to make the interior, you can tell it's done to a price. Doesn't have a real quality feel that you can't see in pictures.

      Which parts did you feel were lacking? Aside from the hard plastic panel under the steering wheel and a somewhat cheaply lined trunk I actually thought the Genesis looked better in person than in pics. It felt a lot better than I expected too.

      The switchgear felt and looked fine to me (although probably not as nice in places as your A4), as did the carpeting, sun visors, steering wheel, and overall layout. Even the glovebox and center armrest storage areas were nicely finished with a black felt lining and the doors also seemed quite solid and had a nice weight to them. The single most impressive things for me about the car from a quality standpoint were the butter soft ultra-premium leather on the V8 (very much like Lexus), the paint quality (easily some of the best paint I've see on any car under $50k), and the gear shifter which is shaped perfectly and moves through the gate with a sense of solidity and precision that truly belies the car's pricing.

      I honestly can't think of any other new RWD luxury sedan that starts at $33k and has a nicer overall interior. Maybe the CTS, what does that start at?

      The chrome knob in on the center console feels all kinds of cheap to me. Looks it too.

      The whole car is just tacky. There's so much chrome, and it's all very cheap and plasticy looking.

      All in all, it looks and feels exactly what it is: a cheap knock off.

      This. There was more I didn't like but It's been a long time since I drove it. I was going to make a thread about then, but TCL was stock full of Genesis sack riders at that time

      I don't know what it starts at in the US, but it also drives better than the Genesis

      Yes, because we all know you're not a VW nut swinger.

      Here's a nice CTS comparison for you, and FYI, that knob is made of aluminum and manufactured by Harman Becker who also makes MMI, COMMAND, and iDrive.

      Interior materials are top-notch, from the leather-trimmed dash (part of the Premium Plus package) to the extensive use of rich, pliable plastics. The backseat is palatial, with a wonderfully high cushion, acres of legroom and headrests that are actually soft enough to rest your head on (Takahashi: "I felt like a pampered Yakuza don in the back of the Genesis, but in the CTS I felt like I was being crammed into a high school buddy's Maxima"). What can we say? The Genesis is a leader. It's really, really good.

      That's right. It was the gray console around the switchgear and the screen.

      I don't care what it's like in the back really. My Audi is cramped in the back for instance.

      Meh, to each their own I guess. I can see all sorts of reasons why some people wouldn't like the Genesis sedan (e.g. too big/heavy, too isolated, no brand cache, slightly bland styling, likely below average resale value, etc.), I just don't think a cheaply finished and/or tacky interior is one of them, especially if a certain said person drives a Maxima. Just sayin'.

      They have been for years. I worked for Honda in 2005. A costco customer would come in, and you'd essentially just hand them the keys and show them how to work the wipers and headlights!

      I can see the appeal, to be honest. It's a passably good deal on a car without the stress and hassle of negotiating, four-square sheets, manager conferences, or endless whining to throw in some floormats. You can get a better deal, but not as easily.

      It's heavy, it's RWD, and not everyone wants a V6.

      I swear jwaters, you gotta take the Hyundai blinders off from time to time dude.

      I assume you just select from the inventory at the dealership. If one has the tech package or whatever, you just base the deal on the invoice and MSRP of the optioned-up car.

      The chrome knob in on the center console feels all kinds of cheap to me. Looks it too.

      The whole car is just tacky. There's so much chrome, and it's all very cheap and plasticy looking.

      All in all, it looks and feels exactly what it is: a cheap knock off.


      And you drive a Maxima

      It's heavy, it's RWD, and not everyone wants a V6.

      Then does a Sonata suit you better? It's the lightest in class, it has the best fuel economy in class, it's FWD, and it doesn't have a V6

      Happy?

      I swear jwaters, you gotta take the Hyundai blinders off from time to time dude.

      I guess you missed my post above. I'm not trying to insinuate that the Genesis is all things to all people, but as enthusiasts I think we can agree that RWD > FWD.

      I realize not all buyers want RWD, but I know most families want a roomy comfortable interior, a nice quiet cabin, and a roomy trunk. The Genesis exceeds the Camcord in these key areas while delivering similar fuel economy (1-2 mpg less, V6 vs. V6) and better driving dynamics. True, it does weigh a whopping 165 lbs. more than a V6 Accord EX-L, but as driving appliances go it's simply a superior vehicle on many fronts. And as joe said, there is always the Sonata for those who prefer and/or feel safer with FWD.

      None of which negates the fact that the Camry and Accord are good, solid choices with plenty of positive attributes. Still, given the choice between an attractive and somewhat rare RWD sedan over an all too common FWD sedan I see on every single street corner I know which one I'd take, especially if said RWD car was in the same general price range.

      His argument wasn't in favor of the Sonata, it was in favor of the Genesis.

      can I just buy 1 or do I have to buy a case of it?....On a serious note, can these be coupled with any manufacturers rebate/offers? I purchased 2 of my cars using this Costco program but none had any manufcaturers rebate at the time and both were special ordered cars. I thought I got a great deal.
