What is this discussion about?
Hyundai Sonata, Sedan
Sep 27, 2012 (6:17 pm)
I am trying to figure out if a deal that I was quoted is a good deal or not.
2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid w/all options.
Out the door price with all rebates, lease cash etc.:$27,620
Lease payment, 36 months, all taxes, doc fees, everything included, $ 353.00 a month, 12,000 mi a year.
I am not sure of the money factor but they said it was the Hyundai standard for top tier credit.
Residual is $18,127.
This is for a deal in Nasville, TN. I know sales tax is 9.25 percent but I think the leases are only taxed on the monthly payment. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you. Thinking about buying this vehicle this weekend.

i have been looking for some inputs from someone in philadelphia regarding a GLS or limited sonata.. your post is exactly wat i was looking for.. could you tell me if you did buy that car you were talking about. can you please give me your msrp and how much did you negotiate and wat was your OTD.
also are you referring to the conicelli hyundai, PA ? they quoted the exact price for me..and also did you go through financing through the dealer?? i have an approval for loan from DCU .. which one should i choose in order to maximize my savings on this? *bombarding you with questions ,i know*

Yes, I bought the car about 4 months ago. Limited with Nav/pano roof package in white (extra $200!!). Came with mats, wheel locks, cargo mat, bumper applique. MSRP was $30,105. Sale price before rebates was $26,250. I went thru Hyundai financing for the $500 rebate. Not sure what the doc fees, title, etc. came to but it was reasonable. Didn't get it at Conicelli as i live an hour north of Philly.
The car is a "looker" and we get tons of compliments. In fact, good friends of ours liked it so much, they actually bought the EXACT same car but at a different dealer. It rides very smoothly and road noise is minimal. All in all, we are very happy with it. Good luck to you.

#8471 of 8898 Breakdown of Piezon deal Below Invoice
Oct 03, 2012 (7:08 am)
It seems like Piezon did get the best deal in this forum on a 2013 limited Sonata with nav, wheel locks, bumper app, cargo mat, and the white color. His msrp was $30,015.... The invoice on this car is $ 28,004. Piezon got his 2013, sonata for $1754 below invoice, PLUS ANY REBATES... WHAT DEALERSHIP DID YOU BUY YOUR CAR FROM put the dealerships name in your post so people can call up dealer and try to get same price. The best price i got in the nyc area was almost $ 1200 below invoice on a white 2013 limited. plus reduced doc fee's 1/2 off price. anybody in piezons area get his email off line if he dosen't mind and get internet slaes mngr he dealt with and start at the price he got.. remember every area and state vary's in price.. the dealer hold back on this car is 3% of total msrp that is 900 dollars so if my numbers are correct piezon dealer lost the whole dealers hold back of $900 dollars plus another $850 dollars on his 2013 sonata sale which is very rare on a new model purchased in sept 2012... For 1750 below invoice i would drive up to 4 hrs to pick up car....... brian

I put my car purchase on the backburner for now, although if someone makes me a very good offer, I am ready to scoop it up. I am also considering the Altima 2013 2.5SL if the price comes down a little. I test drove the Sonata 2.4L Limited twice and the only problem I have is the noise. I thought the Altima and the Accord(even the old 2012 models) were quieter inside - both the engine and the road noise.
On the upside, you get more features/better looks for what you are paying for the Sonata. The warranty is a little tricky too, the 10yr power train warranty has many exceptions you may want to closely look at.
The MSRP is around $26900 - 27000 depending on the installed accessories. Edmunds invoice is about $25,200 and I think the best offer I received (this was more than a month ago) was $23900. Conicelli was about $500 higher. This does not include any rebates/incentives since they are all applied as down money after adding taxes/tags/fees. With 6% tax and about $250 for tags/title etc, it comes to about $25.5 - $26k. If you finance through Hyundai, you can take off $1000 from this; and if you are trading in a hyundai, you can get another $500 off.
As you can see, this is a bit higher than the price you see people are paying on this forum, and I was okay with waiting rather than paying a $1000-$1500 premium. If you are considering the Sonata, you should definitely test drive the 2013 Altima and Accord as well.
#8473 of 8898 GOOD DEAL WHATACAR
Oct 03, 2012 (9:50 am)
SOUNDS LIKE A PRETTY GOOD DEAL. THE WAY I LOOK AT BUYING CARS IS,,,, IF I COULD BUY A CAR FOR BELOW INVOICE AND MAKE THEM GIVE ME HALF BACK ON THE DEALER HOLDBACK I'M FIME WITH THAT ITS A GOOD DEAL.. SOMETIMES YOU COULD DO BETTER.. YOUR 1300 BELOW INVOICE PLUS INCENTIVES IS A GOOD DEAL..IF YOU DECIDE ON THE SONATA PULL THE TRIGGER THE LAST DAY OF ANY MONTH. TRY YOUR BEST TO KNOCK OFF THE DOC FEE'S IF YOU CANT MAKE DEALERSHIP CUT THEM IN HALF OR TELL HIM GOOD BYE... I CALLED PIEZON'S DEALERSHIP WERE HE PURCHASED HIS SONATA FOR $1750 BELOW INVOICE ,, BUT 1200 BELOW INVOICE WAS THERE BEST OFFER TO ME. I MAY HAVE RECIEVED A BETTER DEAL BUT MOST OF THE DEALERS KNEW I WAS NOT BUYING THAT MOMENT.. AND THAT WOULD OF CHANGED THE GAME ALITTLE... GOOD LUCK

If you could wait a few more months on a sonata there will be better deals out there... As the Hyundia dealers start getting alot of the 2013 on there lots they will need to sell them fast.. like you said the new Altima and new 2013 Accords are out,, and are just as good of choice if not better. my mother inlaw opted for the 2013 kia optima instead of the sonata bought it for her on july, 31 for 500 below invoice. if i bought it now i could get a much better deal.. Anyway i think the new 2013 altima would be a better choice than the sonata,, handles better more fun to drive, better gas mpg, and less noise in the cabin .....but hyundia does have the much better warranty.. good luck on your choice............brian
#8475 of 8898 Sonata 2012 SE 2.4
Oct 04, 2012 (8:54 am)
I'm also looking at a 2013 SE without nav/sunroof package. Sticker price is $24,565 and they quoted me $19,688 + they said another $500 if I qualify for loyalty cash which I do so $19,188 +TTL. I feel like they are close to their best deal at this point? Does this sound like a great deal?
I was also considering a Honda Accord 2 door coupe and was quoted $19,646 for an LX-S that sticker price is $25,325. Any input on which is a better deal and why is appreciated. Leaning towards the Sonata because I know the dealer and they always give me top dollar for trade in, have never worked with the other dealer but doubt they would give me as good of a trade.
Both cars are over $5k off sticker price, so I'm trying to hurry up and decide before they are gone.
