Congrats on the 'nata. Hopefully, your experience with Metro on the post-sale end will be like that of the other gentleman here and unlike mine.
Actually, when I bought my '02 Elantra in December of 2001, Metro was great. The sales experience was the best I'd ever experienced. The service dept. seemed good too until mine hit the mileage/date point when Hyundai corporate stopped sending the follow-up surveys. At that point, requests for warranty service were always met with the "we can't find anything wrong" attitude. This happened on multiple occasions. So I have just lived with a turn signal that doesn't cancel on left turns, one tweeter that crackles and a couple of trim pieces on the rear doors that fall out whenever the weather is cold. I've also had the annoying shimmy issue, but that's gone at the moment (an independent tire shop resolved this). Other than these niggles, the car has been very solid.
I may buy another Hyundai, but I wouldn't do it from Metro again. BTW, that VIP program is only good if you rigidly follow Metro's service schedule (which is more intensive than the severe interval listed in the owner's manual and includes a ton of superfluous "inspection checks" for pure dealer profit - God only knows if they even look at your car before they put a check mark in each of those fifty little boxes). Read: there's no such thing as a free oil change. You'll pay for it one way or another.
A guy I work with bought his Hyundai from the same place and has been similarly disgusted with their service dept. He followed Metro's maintenance schedule to 60K for the "free" oil changes and then parted ways. I think the best way to play them is to get the first couple of oil changes pro bono and when they give you the "this is your last free oil change unless you follow the Metro schedule" line, take your business down the road to one of the other shops.

I went to a dealership yesterday and they are offering the 2006 Sonata GLS I4 for $16300 + TTL (MSRP is $19995) after all the rebates and discounts (I qualify for $1500 rebate) . So the O.T.D price will be around $17300. Is this is a good price to pay or may be some more room do you think to bargain.

I don't know where you are but that is a pretty good price for what is essentially a loaded car. If a 4 cylinder is what you're after, go for it!
#2900 of 8898 2007 Sonata SE purchase
Aug 30, 2006 (5:07 am)
Last weekend I purchased a 2007 Sonata SE (Blue Silver -
no additional option) for $18,100 + tax/tag in Fairfax, VA.
The car is for my wife, but I'm driving it during the break-in period. Very nice car all around. Only complaint so
far is a squeaking sound from passenger side.
I was looking for a 2006 model, but there was only one left
on the lot. It had the Sunroof option, and the price would
have been $17,800.

Boy, this is distressing news. Sorry to know of your experience. And sure hope mine is better!

After some haggling, got an email quote for 17,000 out the door, for a new 2006 GLS V6 sonata. (standard package), in Virginia. I know this is pretty good, but wanted to know if you guys think I can get lower than this. Are there others that have gotten under 17k for V6 Sonata ??

I was trying to get the 2006 Sonata GLS 4 cylinder model in PA for $15000 out the door but the dealer did not come down to that price.. $17k sounds like a very good price for V6
Anyone here in this forum, think $15k out the door price possible for 2006 GLS model ?

You know the "Hyundai Challenge" Spots on TV offer a 2006 GLS V6 Sonata for $16,495 after rebates, so I have no idea what type of "haggling" you did. Plus an email quote is just to get you in the door. I know you mentioned that's the out the door price, so if you can get it at the "special email price", do so. Of course today being the end of the month would have probably yielded you a far better price than let's say tomorrow?.
#2906 of 8898 2007 Sonata Limited
Sep 01, 2006 (12:20 pm)
I live in New England and was wondering if anyone can give me an idea of what they paid for a Limited with Ultimate pkg or an SE with the premium pkg. I am talking in the area of Mass or Rhode Island. Any news about incentives or rebates for September?
