Now compare those figures to new... There is no $11000 Accent here in Vegas (out the door) - add the doc fee and "market adjustment" and you are closer to 15000

f those dealers there is no way IM paying more than msrp on a car, the Accent is actually suppose to be $9970 for the base model, plus sales tax and fees, if they want more than that IM going out of state to buy one

You got good advice. Buy used. Insurance is also outrageous..... Even more so if you are required by a lender to have full coverage/collision. Registration is very expensive too.

Then, when you get a job you can sell it for the same price you bought it for and finance something you want.
Agreed. Sounds like the OP is putting the car(t) before the horse.

Many many thanks for the info.
My only concern is NOT getting a loan from the bank because my wife and I would be without jobs, hence the reason for doing this in Sept while I'm still employed here in NYC.
{figuring since we both have good credit-it wouldn't be a problem---once we get there-we'd BOTH be employed-dunno how much our good credit would matter without a job}
I'd kinda like to hold on to as much of my cash as possible.
But the certified used car idea is something I Google'd the hell out of last night.
But I'm still not convinced thats the way to go.

I really do appreciate all the responses I've gotten.
Many many thanks.

$9970 WITH NO AIR, MANUAL TRANSMISSION.. add $1000 for a/c $720 for freight.. There's not a dealer that i know of that doesn't charge for registration and doc fees... (i've been a dealer for 18yrs, i should know this).. Docs range from $200 in Ohio to over a grand....and again.. why would you buy this sh*tbox to begin with.. buy a used elantra or sonata if you want a hyundai

you could always buy a Toyota... and get free cruise control that accelerates to 120 + on its own for no additional charge :-)

I recommend a hummer with a license plate "im#1" or similar. You might be broke after moving here and buying it but at least other people will think you're rich and that's all that really counts right?
