The Sonata is, by far, Hyundai's biggest seller in the US.
For the year 2006 there were 149,513 Sonatas sold in the US. That compares with 130,365 sold in 2005.
However, in December 2006, only 10,149 Sonatas were sold here versus the 20,853 sold in December 2005.
Fewer fleet sales (but why is that?) and possibly the $500 drop in the rebate from $1500 to $1000 contributed to that whopping decrease in December.
Only the Shadow knows!

I am considering Freeman. Does the OTD price include rebates, TT&L?

Perhaps they don't want their cars to be perceived as "good for a rental" car?

I've now driven about 500 miles in my 2007 Sonata Limited and am very pleased. I was able to get the black leather interior but had to settle for my second choice of exterior color, black (first was steel grey). Since I buy a new car every ten years I splurged a little and got the Ultimate package (V-6, moonroof, etc). It's a pleasure to drive, has lots of power, but I'm only averaging about 24-25mpg over mostly highway driving. From other posts, I've heard the mpg will improve as the engine wears in, but I was wondering if this was typical and what increase I could expect. I've heard very nice comments from many people on the car most of which end with "That's a Hyundai??". Maybe they aren't flying out of the showroom, but I'm kind of glad it's not the same as every third car on the road.

You should get fairly close to the EPA estimate on the highway mileage,(city will be less), once the engine is well broken in...about 5,000 miles or so.

I wouldn't trust buying any car in College Park, MD...just because they know there's a lot of ignorant college students in the area, who don't know any better about what they can actually get for their money. I've been touting Fitz in this forum (I feel like a spokesman for them now), which is only a 40 minute drive up 495/270.

Let Fitz know you are doing this....could be $$ in it for you. What we in the car biz call a bird dog fee.

Fitz may be okay but when I called about the limited sonata that they had listed they said it included the XM radio. I asked why didn't list it and their response was that it's standard. I said I doubted it an the salesperson went out to the lot to look and returned to the phone to say that the car had XM. The sales person was pleasant but just not knowledgeable. They DID call me back in an hour or so to say that the cars did NOT have XM but that they were getting ONE Limited in soon (which they now have). The point is you need to do your own research. Also the model number for the Limited with XM is 26462 NOT 25462. Most of Fitz'z stock is the older model WITHOUT XM. Beware.
