On the last week of May, I discovered about the $79 Lease Deal on Car and Driver (www.caranddriver.com) saying that deal has been extended one more month to June 1.  I immediately went to the hyundaiusa.com website and read the details, however when I search for the inventory on their website, it shows ZERO unit within a 250 miles radius from my zip code 11222, I couldn't search for a wider radius because that's the limitation of the website.  I gave up the idea thinking that I'm too close to the June 1 deadline (and it was an EXTENSION of the special deal) and it's reasonable that they may have sold out.

However, I discovered today (6/15/20) that the deal was still on (extended to June 30), so I went to the hyundaiusa.com website to check on the inventory.  It still says ZERO unit within 250 miles radius.  Just to make sure the website is not reporting in error, I called Hyundai Customer Service number at (800) 633-5151 and it was confirmed that the car has ZERO inventory.

This is a blatant display of FALSE ADVERTISING by a national (actually an International) company!!!

Here’s the cut-n-paste from their website:
