Why do you think it's reasonable to pay the dealer over $1000 more than Edmund's TMV price?
If you are serious about this car, you could try a counteroffer of $12k, which includes the doc fee and the Hyundai Certified Warranty. Print out the Edmund's report and show it to them. It's not like there's no used Sonatas out there.
FWIW, last spring I was offered a 2008 Sonata GLS with the moonroof package and Hyundai Certified Warranty, 30k miles, for $10,900 + tax and license. I passed on it because the car was not in great condition. I realize used car prices are generally higher now than last spring, but $12,500 seems very high for three-year-old base GLS, considering it probably sold for around $15k or less when new.

Wow! It might be worth the trip to KC for that deal. There are few '09 Limited V6 that I can find in the Chicago area. The deal I identified here is the best I can find. The key here also is that this dealer is giving me the top end $$ for my trade. This is important in Illinois, as if I sell the car on my own I will have to pay sales tax on the full amount of the new car (that equates to $1,400). So, a private party sale would have to be $1,400 better than trade in to make the deal work.
From what I can tell, Hyundai does not have any financing deals on the '09s and the cheap gas promotion is over.

I went ahead with the purchase of this car. So far I am really impressed. This car is quiet, comfortable and reasonably powerful. The interior is put together nicely and has a quality feel to it. I would put it right up there with Honda and Toyota and ahead of Nissan.
The dealer experience was great. Knauz Hyundai in Lake Bluff, IL. I recommend this dealer to anyone in the Chicago area looking for a Hyundai.

MSRP $27,665, paid $21,713. There were no special financing promotions on the '09 models (I got a pretty decent rate from one of their sources). Also, the $1.49 gas promotion had already expired.
They gave me top dollar for my trade, so I'm happy with the deal. The dealer experience was great and I'm liking the car so far.

Congrats on your purchase. Looks like you got a great deal. The more I drive this car, the more I like it. Smooth, quiet and powerful. I hope you like it as much as I do.
