#3881 of 8853 Price paid Sonata GLS Sport Package
Jun 21, 2007 (1:44 pm)
We went to Elgin Hyundai, IL for buying the car. The dealer started with a confident price quoting it incredibly low at $17,900. We simply told him that we read on the internet blogs that other are getting it for $16,500 and added that with the power of the internet, we know you can do it. Next thing I know - he went to his manager came back 15 minutes later and said "You have the deal $16,500+TTL it is" for the GLS Sonata Sports package. Got the gas filled up gave us the keys and we were very pleased with the deal. The total after taxes was $18M after rebate.
Didn't have to haggle much.. just talk smooth, calmly and explain how the internet has open information on these things.
The whole experience was very pain-free and pleasant. The sales-rep was happy... the manager was very pleasant to talk to... and he came over and talked very nicely. Overall it was really exceptionally good unlike the first time when I bought the car in 2003.

The 2008 are on the Lot. I went to the dealer today 06/21 and they had just unloaded their first shipment of 2008 Sonata's. Look pretty much the same to me...but they were still covered in plastic for the most part.....

I wish that was the case in my area. I'm trying to decide between getting a greatly reduced price on a 2007 limited w/V6, or waiting for the 2008 model to arrive so I can get the limited package with the 2.4 engine. One dealer tells me he has 2008's on the way, the other dealer says they won't have any 2008's until they clear out most of the 2007's. I don't care much for anything they have sitting on the lot right now which is making my decision harder.

You purchased a 2007 Sonata with Platinum Package in Black? I own a 2007 Sonata w/ Platinum Edition Package and at the time, it was only available in Bright Silver. I always thought it was only available in that color (hence the name "Platinum" Edition). Has this changed?

I purchased a Sante Fe on Saturday evening and upon driving home 5 miles the check engine light came on. I took it into the dealer and they kept the SF and called me today. They told me its the only SF they ever had with an internal short and that i could pick out any vehicle on the lot and they would make it up to me. I picked a $21,500 MSRP Sonata which they promptly discounted to $15,500 OTD...IM HAPPY....
#3888 of 8853 2007 GLS auto base
Jun 22, 2007 (6:03 pm)
I just bought a new 2007 GLS, automatic, base style in Texas.
Sales price $17,000.
Rebate $3500 (using Hyundai's balloon financing)
(Rebate would have been $2000 otherwise).
Price of car without TTL $13,500
TTL and other fees = 1056.45
OTD price $14556.45
This is the best price I could manage after getting several quotes.
I'm still a little uneasy about the balloon financing, but I couldn't resist the extra $1500 in rebate.

I took the extra $1,500 also....tried to get the military discount but said i had to be active duty. Last time i purchased a car a couple of years ago i just needed to be a Veteran now everyone is saying active duty....
The only negative about the balloon is the mileage limitations. However, the dealer told me it would only matter if I turned or traded in the car. However, if i refinanced the remaining amount they said i could be over the mileage with no penalty. So to me it was a no brainer on the extra $1,500 as it was free money so to speak and the $170/month payments are hard to beat....
#3890 of 8853 Jus bought a used Sonata 2004
Jun 22, 2007 (10:12 pm)
I just bought a 2004 Sonata GLS V6 for $9500 in CA. It had just 28000 miles on it. Do you think it's a fair deal?
Also, any pointers on the maintenance front would be really helpful. Also suggest if there are anything specific, that I need to use (Specific Oil) etc. The seller also tells me this has got 5 year bumper to bumper warranty. Is Hyundai's warranty really good?
Appreciate your help!
