#7958 of 8898 2012 Sonata Limited +Nav
Aug 09, 2011 (5:48 am)
I know in my recent posts I was asking for advice on a deal for the SE 2.0T + Nav, but I went down to the dealership I was chatting with, test drove a limited turbo, the SE turbo, and a Limited non-turbo. After the road comparisons, I decided to go with the Limited non-turbo. The car has plenty of starting get up for me, the turbo was nice but for where I live, completely unncessary. Great ride, smooth stearing, nothing but good things to say about it. They didn't have the color I was looking for so they are going to go out and find it, with a $500 deposit, returned upon delivery or can be put down on the car at signing.
Here's the deal...
2012 Hyundai Sonata Limited
Package - Navigation
Trade In - 2002 Ford Taurus - $2000
Sticker Price - 29,305
Dealer Doc Fee - 399
Rebate - 500
Price out the door - $25000 + Tax/License
Purchased at Todd Archer Hyundai - Bellevue, NE

On the surface you got an OK deal, but what are you basing the invoice price on? I'm seeing the invoice on a 2012 non-turbo SE with Nav/Sunroof at around 25,500. So I disagree with the "900 below" assessment.
But you did not get screwed over either - you got a very good price for a nice car. But just know that my target for that car would have been in the 24.5k range.
Like I listed in my only other post on here - Invoice for my 2012 limited turbo is around 27,381 and I negotiated the deal down to 25,680. That's in the 1,700 under invoice range.
My "dealer fee" added 600 to my costs, so as far as I'm concerned, I add that to how I view the car price, so I consider my deal as a 1k under factory invoice deal.
I count the stuff like "Dealers Fee" that a lot of people seem to leave off their deal posts here. If the dealer says "OK I'll knock off 500" and then adds a 500 fee in the Finance office, you net 0, but then they come here and only post the initial -500 price? It would be better if everybody on here used a standard template for reporting deals so people could do a real deal comparison. (and if Edmunds joined the "1990's" and used a real discussion forum software)
The Sonata is selling very fast, at least when I was looking and in my area. Cars would literally show up in the AM and be gone same day PM. If anyone can wait - I would until demand slowed down.

I need your input on the best price I can pay for 2011 Limited Turbo with Nav. The details with accessories are as below.
Exterior: Venetian Red Metallic
NAVIGATION PKG 5 (05)
ALL-WEATHER FLOOR MATS (WF)
BUMPER APPLIQUE (RP)
CARGO MAT (CM)
CARGO NET (CN)
CARPETED FLOOR MATS (CF)
IPOD CABLE (IC)
MUD GUARD (MG)
SUNROOF WIND DEFLECTOR (WD)
I posted in TrueCar and Zag and got quotations for around 28,000 with above spec, a 750 below invoice. Is that the best we can get? I want to know what some of you could have paid in last few weeks on this spec.
Also let me know if any of accessories are not worth the price. I am not sure about them. All I wanted was the Turbo with Nav. So advice on the accessories too.
I see from previous posts that guys out there paid much less than what I am seeing now for this model. Did the prices increase for this model even while as new model is out?
#7961 of 8898 GLS Auto Pricing in So California
Aug 14, 2011 (7:26 pm)
Now I am ready to buy 2012 Hyundai Sonata, GLS Auto model with Popular(?) package. I don't currently own Hyundai car at this time, but purchased four new Hyundai models in the last 10 years. Including those Hyundai, Acura, Honda... I used to get $3,000 to $5,000 discount from MSRPs. But not at this time.
So far, the best price I've got is about $1,000 off from MSRP. (Somewhere around Invoice price). Some even want full MSRP! Is this reflect current market in So Cal?
When I looked at the newspaper ads, it seems Toyota Camry could be cheaper with more discount they offer. I'm pretty happy about previous Hyundai purchases, but not sure I am willing to pay more than similar one from Toyota.
#7962 of 8898 2012 Sonata SE 2.0T Price?
Aug 15, 2011 (7:05 am)
I have decided to buy 2012 Hyundai Sonata SE 2.0T. I am going with ZAG AMEX. The price comes out to be $23,500.
Invoice Price: 24,321
Price Offered: 23,500. Should I pay this price?

Looks like a good price to me. Some people have reported getting the car for $1,000 under factory invoice so if you feel like pushing things you could shoot for $23,321. I doubt that for $180 it would be worth the hassle and I also doubt that they would go for it.

Assuming the car is good condition, without any major wreck history, that is a very good price for a Limited Sonata. That price is less than what a GLS equipped car would sell for right now.

The car has no accidents but am hesitating to buy whether i need to put any more expenses for maintenace for the wear and tear. what kind of maintenance do we need to do after 26000 miles? do i need to change brakes after i complete 30,000 miles? or usually for a hyundai sonata after completeing 30k miles what do i need to invest for maintenance liek changing brakes or transmission oil or any other maintenance cost?
