Hi all, I recently found the above car at a dealership and can get a very good deal on it because it is an older model with only 1k miles on it. It was a demo model so never titled or ‘owned’ technically. It still would come with Hyundai new warranty for that reason. I asked why it was still there and they said the former sales manager had a ‘different philosophy’ about holding on to old inventory, whatever that means. They actually have several 2013s of this model that are still new. I did look up the model online to see if there any real complaints with it for that year, but couldn’t find anything so I am inclined to believe the salesperson on that part at least. They are willing to sell it below kbb value probably just to get rid of it.
My question is: what should I be concerned about since I’ve heard cars that sit too long without being driven can have issues. Would it be breakdown of fluids like oil, tranny, brake? I am in the mid-Atlantic so wet climate but not on the ocean . Should I ask for those to be changed before purchase or as condition of? If anyone has had a similar experience with buying a ‘new’ car that is several model years old, I’d love to hear about it.
Thank you and happy New Year!
