Unless you're paying cash for that new car, you're also going to pay interest on the price that you and the dealer agreed upon. There are some great car financing options in today's market. While there may be some great low or no finance deals out there, interest costs are going to drive the cost of ownership up.

Crash testing results
I hear that there are no insurance crash test figures out yet. Can someone check?
Safety features failed
Hello, My sister was recently in a MVA where another driver ran a red light and t-boned her Elantra at 40mph. The airbags did not deploy. The seatbelts broke upon impact. Has this happened to anyone else? Should we contact Hyundai? I have researched and "side impact collision" air bags were supposed to deploy that is the purpose of the vehicle having them. There are no recalls on the vehicle that we are aware of. 1 owner. Bought new.
