The perfect Hyundai is right at your fingertips–but you may be shopping on a limited budget, or you just want to save a few thousand dollars on your purchase. To hit all of the must-haves on your list, you’re likely considering buying a used or Certified Pre-Owned Hyundai model or something you think is more affordable.
But there are a lot of factors that go into buying a used vehicle: prior service records, environment, age, mileage, etc. Most of that is out of your hands, and finding the best deal on a pre-owned vehicle generally comes down to luck.
When you explore your options for a competitively-priced demonstrator vehicle from Patrick Hyundai, you could get the performance and reliability you want, at a price that you won’t find at just any used-car dealership. Our retired demonstrators offer an excellent opportunity for our clients to drive a new Hyundai at a significantly reduced price and still receive new car rates and special discounts.
Hyundai Demonstrator vehicles are new vehicles that have been driven by dealership salesmen, managers or executives but has never been registered with the state. A used car is any car that has been registered.
Rule Of Thumb: Once a vehicle has been registered, it is legally considered used. These vehicles have never been titled but because they have been driven as a demonstrator, the manufacture requires dealers to sell as like-new vehicles.
Interestingly, demonstrator car inventories are actually the reason why vehicles-like Hyundai-have one of the highest resell rates within 12-18 months of purchase date; but it’s because Hyundai dealers are incentivized to purchase new vehicles to stock their demonstrator vehicle fleets and then add them to their own pre-owned inventory.
New vehicles take the largest hit of depreciation within their first 1-3 years of service; if you buy new, you are responsible for that loss of value. But when you choose to buy a retired demonstrator, you avoid the largest drop in value, and the dealership–not you–takes on the weight of that cost. However, it’s worth it to the dealer to spend a little in order to satisfy their client base.
Our demonstrator vehicles receive routine scheduled maintenance at Patrick Hyundai in Schaumburg. So, when they need an oil change, tire rotation, detailing, or minor work, our demo cars are treated by the expert technicians in our service center. We are diligent in our performed services, so you never have to worry about whether the Hyundai you buy has received a high quality of care.
We hand-select the vehicles that join our demonstrator car fleet, so you know that you’re choosing from the very best of the very best.
