    I'm just curious as to when the ADM and the 'addon features' prices will be gone and one will be able to get it at MSRP. For me, if they used raise the MSRP to $39-40k - I would be alright with it. But I don't believe you'll recoup the ADM so while the ADM takes it to around $40k - that is money lost - granted ALL of this becomes a mute point if you keep the car for around 10yrs. Something I tell myself all the time although around the 4 or 5yr mark - I"m looking for a new ride :)

    I think the used market might be where you find the best bargains - I'm seeing some 'decent' deals with less than 5k on the odo. But right now, my focus is to wait for a year - so the 2020 refresh might be something I'll look at again - plus my current ride will be close if not PIF.

    Well to buy a $50k car, which as you say isnt that expensive, a person should be making probably $125k a year or so, otherwise your financial priorities need some serious reconsidering. Id say most people here make way under $100k so spending $50k on a car is moronic to put it lightly.

    ADM plus Tax and i can't think of a worse way to lose a ton of money if you ever sold that car before 10 years, like you said lol. I get bored of my cars in 4-5 years so no way would i ever pay adm on anything. But i understand why others would. I wouldn't let $2k markup keep me from the car of my dreams.

    If I had never owned Hyundai, I would have to agree with this. However, I've owned two Hyundais in my family and both have had the engine replaced under warranty after the engine seized and left us stranded (yes, it happen twice on two different Hyundai vehicles, reference recall #17V226000).

    If there is one car brand I think is total sh*t, it's Hyundai. I grew up in Tampa Bay, and there was a car dealer called Fitzgerald who aired Hyundai commercials all the time. I'll never forget the slogan, which was an old man (the owner himself, Fitzgerald) saying:

    "People ask me all the time 'Jack, do you sell Hondas?'....I sell HYUNDAI. It's a lot more car, for a lot less money"
    As it turns out, Hyundai is a lot less money for a reason, and certainly a lot less car.

    Years later, after two seized engines on two different Hyundais, I'll never, ever own Hyundai again. Aside from the seized engines, there was a slew of other issues I had (knocking in the steering wheel column, faulty oxygen sensors, failed starter to name a few). So, while the Veloster N from the surface seems like a neat car, I see nothing but a pile of junk. That car will depreciate so fast , much more than an Si and certainly way more than a CTR, and you'll be getting warranty work done on it throughout the 100,000 mile coverage.

    have you driven it? it looked really good on paper but i wasn't impressed with it overall when i saw it and drove it. The figures are not too far off but the price shows itself. It really feels CHEAP.

    Don't wanna tune a turbo motor - especially on a Subaru. Don't need/want the complexity of AWD - the simpler, the better for a DD. And I like Honda's reputation for reliability. WRX was on the top of my list, but then I drove a Type R and found it more exciting.

    Naw bro, even at $70K, it's a bargain.

    Every single review - "The CTR is fantastic, and because it's FWD, it can be priced far below its competition." But it sounds like the primary reason for the existence of FWD is lost on some people here.

    Honestly if the Si was about as powerful as the GTI it'd be perfect, but Honda knows this & they don't want to bridge the gap between the Si & the CTR. It's already barely worth it to get the Golf R over the GTI.

    My family has owned several Hyundai’s and they haven’t really had any major issues. There were a few minor ones but nothing too bad. I learned to drive in a 2012 Sonata and I thought it was perfectly adequate.

    No, I haven’t driven it yet. I know for a fact that the material selection on the interior was noticeably towards the cheap side which is where I imagine it was able to cut costs. A lot of the reviews say it’s an extremely fun car though. And for the price of you can stomach it I think it’s a good price for what you get.

    yep, and I'm proud to be one of those investors who wants their pockets lined. If that 1.6% price bump could only translate into a 1.6% increase in my portfolio, I would be an extremely happy guy....I don't make the rules, but I sure take advantage of them :)

    Hahaha some people like him doesn’t understand capitalism like we do. We invest in stocks and grow portfolios while some whine and complain about it and sit on the sideline.

    Apple stocks paid for my FK8 free and clear after grabbing a ton of shares after November 2016 election. How can I complain about free money that comes from putting it to work? LoL hi-five!!!

    No, point is soon it will be $50K car and we’ll have the same post at that time. The bar then moves to $75K as next level ;-)

    Plenty of people I know drive $50K cars and make less than $100K because they’ve done a good job saving and investing. You don’t need to make $100K+ if you’re smart so not it’s not moronic - it’s called good financial management.

    Meanwhile the median American family has only $11,700 in savings as of 2018 stats. That’s moronic.

    Agreed! I make over 125k and still bought the SI. Leaves me with a lot more money to use towards fun times with my daughter. I almost made a dumb mistake and wanted to purchase a GTR. Glad I didn't because it would limit my financial freedom.

    Every time the price creeps up, the closer it gets to other performers and the less of a bargain it becomes.

    Wow, we got some people on here think they are special cause they got money... wow if that is your only bragging point of your contribution to the human race is bragging of your own superiorty over others due to your back account. That truly is sad.
