A lot to read through, but I understand the frustration. I have a suggestion for you. I'm from the Bawllamrrrr -- DC area. One of the dealers here, Fitzgerald Hyundai, posts its prices on its internet site, http://www.fitzmall.com/. The site currently has Limiteds w/o NAV for under $23, including destination. I'm sure the dealership would work with you. Its reputation is pretty good (I have no connection to the dealership. I'm a govt. employee, same as you.) At the very least, you can print out the price and use it as a bargaining chip with your local dealers. That's what I did. Got a 2012 Sonata GLS with the premium package for $17,300 in May. Good luck in your hunt. I LOVE the car.

A limited without Nav could be gotten for $22000.
Also insist on no doc fee.
If you want to add Nav, just add $2000, that's it.
#8430 of 8898 2013 Sonata - GLS, no option package

Think I was able to get a pretty good deal on a new 2013 Sonata:
-w/out popular equipment package
-includes floor mats, cargo mat, cargo net, bumper applique
Price ~$17,000 (incl. destination)
OTD ~$18,500 (incl. everything: tax, title, license, doc fee, etc...)
Was able to use multiple rebates: $1000 financing, $500 standard cashback, $500 owner loyalty, $400 recent grad

Regarding rebates, it's another shady thing. Just insist on the price.
One of the dealers I called ultimately gave me a price of $23,000, but then when I asked about the military veteran discount or the loyalty discount, they said that prices includes all rebates.
But they never even asked me anything about previous Hyundai ownership or my military status.
By the way I meant to say 23000 with no Nav. I made a typo. This also includes the fact I negotiated $0 dealer doc fee.

Its possible that your dealer simply gave you discounts equivalent to the military & loyalty rebates in order to seal the deal.
IMO I don't care how they arrive at my OTD price as long as the number is agreeable. (I've taken to private-party selling my old cars so trade-ins aren't a factor.) I focus on my cost and not the individual prices.

I too base it on costs. I also don't care how they arrive at the final number.
My strict number for the loaded '13 Sonata was $25000.
No added dealer fees.
They finally agreed to my number plus state tax and plate fees.

You are very fortunate you received any responses to this Email. Dealers tend to shy away from responding to inquiries such as this.
The main reason is the very thing you said in your Email. "...whichever dealership gets back to me with the best deal by 2PM today gets my business/maintenance loyalty/referrals. "
You received a quote for $24,837 and it still wasn't low enough.
Since you have a price in mind that would make you happy, you would have been better off choosing the specific car from their web inventory, and Emailing them a specific offer (lower than your real number to leave negotiating room) for that stock number. "Please accept my offer of $24,000 for your stock number XXXXX for the new 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited. My offer is inclusive of all available incentives for which I am eligible. I am ready to purchase in the next 24 hours, and respectfully request a response to my offer by close of business today. If you cannot accept this offer, please send me your best counter-offer If I do not hear from you, I will assume the car is either no longer available or you are not interested in doing business." If a dealer agrees to your offer ask for them to Email an official quote, on dealer letterhead, to you.
Also check out truecar.com, as well as USAA's car buying service. Those may give you access to some very good pricing without having to go through the headache of negotiating with dealers via Email.
#8435 of 8898 2013 Limited 2.0T w/o Nav Good Deal?
Sep 08, 2012 (4:42 pm)
I was just offered a quote of $26,668 for a black on black 2013 Limited 2.0T. This includes tax, incentives, registration and is OTD but not plates (would be about another $130). Is this a good deal? The dealership is located in IL. What price should I be looking to get? I was thinking $26,500 would be acceptable.

Since taxes vary state by state as do registration, title, and plates, can you specify what you offered before those fees?
That's the negotiable part. The taxes and plates free can't be changed.
By the way, you can include in the negotiation, the dealer doc fees even if they try to say you can't.
Without knowing the above it's hard to say whether the deal is really good.
