FLEMINGTON, NEW JERSEY -- After reading the well-written account of the gentleman from Md. who purchased a 2011 Hyundai Sonata from Flemington Hyundai under duress (to say the least), I felt I needed to comment on a similar experience I had with this dealership.

This dealership is aggresive and uses con tactics in their sales/service processes. I purchased new in 2011 and was pressured to buy accessories and other coverages that I did not want. The dealership claims they offer $19.95 oil changes for their buying customers but rip you off in their shop with other services they claim are needed. They do not have an express lube, make you wait for an oil change and won't even service you on a Sat unless you have an appointment.

I stopped using them for my services and had to go back once for a steering issue with the car....they commented that I had not serviced the car in 10,000 miles. I told them I was using the Quick Lube down the street and in 10 minutes I'm in /out and not getting ripped off.

The Hyundai Sonata in my opinion is a very cheap car with inferior materials. The paint chips easily and the inferior carpeting is well worn in 35,000 miles....I wash and wax the car monthly. The ride is harsh and the car is noisy inside. I travel back & forth to Florida with this car

I recently discovered Flemington Chevrolet for service on my older Chevy HHR. The dealer there is fabulous, their service is great and their sales staff (I'm currently speaking with them about a new car)outstandingly honest and straight forward...so refreshing!!!! and they don't play games like Flemington Hyundai.

Stay away from Flemington Hyundai unless you like being treated like a moron and enjoy pain and suffering.

Like everything else in life you get what you pay for. Hyundai designers have marketed a car with real eye candy. The look is fresh and appealing which have increased their sales. As the OP stated what you really get is a cheap car with inferior materials. The resale value is horrible. Toyota and Honda are tops in their class for good reason. They build a quality product that lasts. These cars can easily go 300,000 miles with proper maintenance. Hyundai is a throw away car. Your money...your choice.

Agree with OK4now. I recently shopped for a new car and took a close look at Hyundai. Nice looking cars, good performance at least when new. Then I thought long and hard and went with Toyota again. The Corolla is a little more conservative and less flashy, but reliability and longevity are my main concerns. My last two Corollas went 440,000 and 186,000 miles with virtually no problems and were still going strong when I sold them (the reason I sold them is that my company requires me to drive a newer car to get compensated for my business miles). Why would I even consider Hyundai?
