#7900 of 8898 2012 Sonata Limited
Jul 12, 2011 (9:36 pm)
After watching this forum and getting some internet price quotes, I went to Allen Hyundai in So Orange Co., CA to see what sort of deal I could get. The best internet quote was about $1600 off list, but it looked like many posts on this forum were getting about $2000 off list, though this was mostly for 2011's. Once the salesman learned I was an Auto Club member, he immediately offered $800 below invoice, approx $2300 below sticker. I took the deal. Looks like an Auto Club or Costco membership can quickly get you to what seems to be a pretty good deal.

First I contacted the interent department at Bernardi in Brockton. Went in and test drove a couple of cars and spent a little time with the salesman.
When I wasn't thrileld with the price, I went online and emailed the Interenet Sales department of many dealers within 75 miles that had the model and equipment I wanted.
When I got a better deal (by a decent margin) I called my salesman to thank him for his assistance, but there was another dealer, XYZ within driving distances who offered a significant savings (real price) and that because their price was so much lower, I had to go to that dealer to investigate.
Within a half an hour, I got a call back with a price $700-$800 less than the other dealer I was going to give a shot.
Bottom line, try to pick a car that they have a few of. (They had 6 or 7 of the exact same car at Bernardi) Then do a little web searching. You will be surprised how you can get a damn good price without even stepping into a dealership nowadays.

Always work with invoice not MSRP. Hyundai like Honda offers indirect incentives to dealers based on their inventory turnover and other economic factors. I know for sure that last Fall the incentive on 2011 SE was about 2400 but dealers were passing on some and selling it for 21k plus TT&L and often throwing in ipod cable, mats and other low cost accessories but padding doc. fees. Now, with 2012 Sonata model in, I would imagine 2011 should be sold at higher discount.
Also, due to disaster in Japan, lot of other Asian car brands are short on supply and that puts market pressure for new car prices to harden, especially for fuel efficient models!
FYI, Camry had $1200 rebate due to re-designed model arriving in less than 2 months time and I am sure Altima will be discounted due to the same!
If one can wait till Fall thru Spring than better deals will be offered on all major brand mid size cars unless economy takes off!

Good deal for a hot selling car. Enjoy. If You love the car and are enjoying it, the price is well worth it.
Several years ago I paid $2G over MSRP for an MDX.I was so happy with the Suv that I don't regret paying the extra. There's no greater joy than driving a car You love, in my opinion.
#7905 of 8898 Shopping for 2012 SE 2.0T, new
Jul 14, 2011 (7:24 pm)
I'm in the Atlanta area (GA) and dealer today offered me $27000 out the door for the 2012 SE Turbo, $25000 before fees and taxes. I've e-mailed a bunch of other dealers now trying to see if they can beat this. How's $27000 OTD in this region? What should I be aiming for?

Don't know if that is a good deal or not, but I have been emailing dealers in Virginia and Maryland for a 2012 GLS Sonata and the best deal I have gotten is $700 below invoice on any model Sonata with a $199 processing fee plus taxes. Maryland has a state law capping processing fees at $200 and most northern Virginia dealers will match the $199 processing fee. Think I will probably take $700 below invoice for a 2012.

Wait, $700 below INVOICE? The offer they gave me is MSRP. Can you give me the name of the dealership and city? (I'll take a flight up there if it'll save me money...plus the drive back would be fun)

Went to Plaza Hyundai in Brooklyn NY, made a deal, 22K and 2.9% financing for 60 months. Took the car drove it away. Get a phone call the next day, saying interest rate is incorrect, it should have been 3.9%. They told me either bring the car back or agree, so i agreed. I am contacting a lawyer we have that is provided by the company but he is out until next week.
Any suggestions? What do i do if they call again?
Is there anyone from Hyundai here?
I am about to contact Attorney General's office and already called Better Business Bureau.
Guys, please help.
