#5919 of 8855 2009 Sonata 4-Cyl Limited w/Nav
Jan 06, 2009 (10:05 am)
Took delivery of a 2009 Sonata 4-Cyl Limited PZEV w/Nav purchased from Mirak Hyundai in Arlington, MA yesterday, Jan 5, 2009.
Sticker price on vehicle was: $24,150 base price + $1,250 Nav System + $90 floor mats + $85 sunroof wind deflector + $695 freight = $26,270 total sticker price.
I noticed that the base price for this vehicle currently listed on the Hundai website is $400 higher ($24,550) than the one on the car I got!! It looks like Hyndai must have increased its pricing at some point, you might want to pay attention to this fact when you pick out your vehicle and try to find the one with the lower sticker price! I'd like to know if other people have noticed a similar discrepancy and if there is an explanation for it.
I traded in a 2002 4-Cyl Honda Accord EX with 82,500 city miles in fair condition. Hard to know exactly what I got for the trade, but after talking to the salesman at Mirak and at other dealerships I figure it was $5,000 max. After all the negotiations were done, I ended up getting $8,108 off (including the value of the trade-in) in addition to the $2,000 rebate, for a final purchase price of $16,162. With the 5% Mass sales tax of $808, reg/title fees of $75 and a document prep fee of $285, the grand total came to $17,330.
I don't know if this is the absolute best price I could have gotten, there are 3 other Hyundai dealers in the Greater Boston area but Mirak is by far the closest to my house and I plan to get the car serviced there. The shopping experience was low pressure and pleasant enough. I did not get quotes from any other Hyundai dealers. I test-drove the Altima and considered the Fit, but ruled out the new Accord, Camry, Mazda6, Malibu because these cars have gotten too big and I park on city streets. I figure any of these models similarly equipped would have cost about $5,000 more. If the Sonata turns out to be reliable, it will seem like I got a bargain.
#5920 of 8855 OTD Price for 2009 Sonata GLS
Jan 06, 2009 (12:34 pm)
I think I have a deal for the 09 Sonata GLS (4cl, automatic transmission) with just the base option package (though floor mats and mudflaps are included) for just less than $16,000 out the door. I feel like this is a pretty good deal even though it is essentially the most basic model out there, but would love to hear what other people think. The price breakdown is $14350.00 for the vehicle + about $1600 in taxes and fees (incl. $395 processing fee and $695 frieght).

Looks very good to me.. I don't know what rebates you're getting though. Do you get loyalty or military rebates etc?

#5927 of 8855 Sonata 2009 GLS Auto I-4 with PEP $16246 OTD

I just bought a new Sonata 2009 GLS Auto I-4 with Popular Equipment Package from FAIRFAX with OTD $16246 including $695 freight, $389 processing fee, and tax. I negotiated the price online and picked up the car in local after driving ~370 miles (sound crazy, but save the money).
The agent vicient is very helpful and friendly. No hassle, no hidden fee, the whole pick up procedure went through very quickly and smoothly. BTW, I pay by cash, no finance.
After driving back of 370 miles, the average mileages is 36.8/gallon, pretty good.

Sounds like you got a great deal, your OTD price is about $300.00 cheaper than the best price I've seen locally before TT&L.
