#6601 of 8852 2010 Hyundai Sonata Limited I4 Price Paid
Nov 06, 2009 (4:45 pm)
I was traded in a 2007 Hyundai Sonata with 58,000 miles. The 2007 needed brakes but had the sunroof, hubcap rims, had the I4 engine, and xm radio. Owed $9,100 and this is all I wanted on trade in value.
Purchased a 2010 Hyundai Sonata Limited I4. Did not want navigation or bluetooth. Car was power white pearl had floor mats included. I did not qualify for military or college rebates. Dealer went to $23,100.00. This also included the $500.00 Hyundai loyalty rebate. I also finance with Hyundai Motor Finance for 1.9% over 72 months. I gave up the $1,000 rebate from Hyundai by doing this. I paid title tax and tags out of pocket.

Purchased a 2009 Hyundai Sonata Limited I4 with navigation for 21K + Tax+ DMV+Doc fee (55) (Bay area). I am not sure if the price is good and the vehicle quality. However, the edmunds forum information has been a good part of my decision towards this purchase. Thanks for all the postings.

Congratulations on your new Sonata. I got the same car in April for $21.7, so I think you did pretty well. As for the quality, I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised. We've had four Hyundais in the last nine years and each has been great.
One Web reviewer said this of the Sonata: "It feels like a quality car, and not in a cheap way". By which I assumed he meant it felt like Hyundai had not used cheap measures in the car in an effort to imitate quality.

Hello folks, sorry for replying kind of late to your post I just found it and would like
to add a little information for the people who are may be looking at new Sonatas.
We all know by now the 2010 has very little or no change from the 2009. I bought
a new 2009 SE V6 in July this year with all the standard SE equipment plus a few
add on's like mud guards, body striping, all floor mats including trunk, and a extra
window tinting on top of the standard solar glass.No bluetooth or navigation in it
(don't want it, don't need it).
The MSRP on the sticker was $25,096. I don't know what extra options I could have
got on it even if I wanted them. Compared to the V6 Limited $27,665. thats a huge difference $2569. I'm not disputing the $400. difference at your dealership but
that is a ridicules price for the SE V6 considering Edmunds, KBB, etc has MSRP
listed at under $25,000. If that is what they told you the difference was, it would be
hard for me to believe anything else they say.

Wondering if anyone can give me an idea what a Base GLS 5spd 2010 Sonata may go for? I am looking for the entry level 5 speed, a second car for the family. Any help would be appreciated and any links to specials would also help. Fitzmall did not seem to be particulary cheap.
Thanks in advance!

I snagged my '09 GLS manual for $14,500 OTD back in April. You probably won't be able to get anywhere near that kind of price for a '10 any time soon. In fact, I wouldn't expect to be able to get a great price on the '10 until some time in the spring or even summer of '10.
Once the newly redesigned '11s start showing up on the dealship lots, I'd expect a HUGE price drop on the '10s, as most people will want the new design.
Do any of your local dealers have 09 GLS Sonatas in stock? You should be able to get a great price on those now.
If I had to guess what a base model '10 Sonata GLS manual would be going for right now, I'd say $17,700 - $18,500 would be considered a great deal.
I hope that helps.

#6608 of 8852 2007 Sonata GLS price paid: $0 + T&L
Nov 27, 2009 (1:27 pm)
OK, OK, so it's $0 after trade-in, before license and title fee. I couldn't resist saying $0.
I just traded my Blue Bunny (2007 Rabbit 2-door) even-up for a 2007 Sonata GLS I4 AT with the Preferred Package (power seat, trip computer, leather wheel with audio controls, auto headlamps, etc.). Has 37,000 one-owner miles (not a rental), new Kumho Solus tires, and looks and drives like new. It's steel grey, which is my favorite color from the 2007 MY.
I loved the Rabbit, had it only 8 months, but we just got rid of our Chrysler minivan and found my wife needs a little bigger car, and one that is easier to climb in and out of (she has a bad back and knees). Our other car at home is an Elantra. So I decided if I could trade the Rabbit even-up for a bigger car, I would do it. I found two Sonatas with exactly the same color and equipment, but one had the new tires and the other a bit fewer miles with original rubber. The dealer with the 37k Sonata finally agreed to the even-up trade after haggling; the other dealer stuck firm at $400 + T&L. Both dealers were pleasant to work with, professional and up-front, no tricks. I bought the car from Luther Hyundai Kia in Bloomington, MN.
I've always liked the Gen 4 Sonata and almost bought one a couple of times, including last spring when I bought the Rabbit. I think it has a great combination of room, quiet ride, and buttoned-down style for the money. And it will be a better car for my wife to haul the family around in, and even for the occasional long trip.
If anyone is wondering, yes, I did take the car for a long drive and checked for any unusual suspension noise. I drove on my favorite "test track", a back road with washboard surfaces, potholes, and curves. No strange noises from the suspension. I did notice a little tire whine on a textured freeway surface, but I've heard that kind of noise on the same road on other cars so I chalk it up to normal tire noise.
The "Internet special price" of the Sonata was $11k, down from $12k. Loan value is $12.3k per my bank. I bought the Rabbit last April for $11k + T&L, and put zero into the car except gas, so my cost of ownership for the Rabbit was pretty low. Book value is around $9500 for trade-in. Plus it's due for its 40k service, which would have probably cost a few hundred bucks, while the Sonata shouldn't need any major maintenance for 2-1/2 years based on how far we drive in a year. And it has about 2-1/2 years of factory warranty left.

Congrats on the car, man! Sounds like you got a fair deal on the trade in. I'm sure the steel grey paint job looks great with those tires (especially with a nice coat of Armor-All rubbed on).
