"Thanks. Interesting since the Edmunds explanation on hold backs tell people that many dealers are unwilling to negotiate their hold back"
That's the trick. You never mention holdbacks to them during your negotiation. You just tell them your price. No need to tell them how you arrived at that number. Once you start to give them too much information, the process goes against you from there.
I even avoid all the small talk about how many miles I drive each year, how many kids I have, what kind of driving I do, city vs. highway, what I do for a living, etc. Its a cash sale, so they shouldn't care (or need to know) about anything except the price.
Remember, these people are not your friends. They are adversaries in the negotiation process. Its strictly business at that point.

the difference between these two cars is this.the honda will get better resale value while the sonata will have way more features for the money including a better warranty.if you plan on keeping the car for atleast 5 years,the sonata is the way to go....

I know this strategy worked well for you on the purchase of a Sonata because this car is in high demand. I'm looking at purchasing a 3.8l Genesis Sedan loaded with Prem/Tech packages. Do ou think this would work on that car that's not in high demand like the Sonata? Looking to buy end of Nov. maybe Dec.

Lashawn, I am Looking to buy a 2013 Hyundia Genesis, V6 with all the Toys, or the new 2013 Honda Accord, V6... EXL. The style is very similar, size, and the features are pretty close. My thoughts are if i opt for the Accord i will save about 12k. when i compare them side to side on edmunds they are pretty close in size, horsepower , V6 only, and tech features. Gas mpg better on Accord. The Genesis will be redesigned for 2014 with a 10 speed trans and i would think more updated Tech features. I dont want to wait till next Nov, 2014 . I plan to buy either car in Jan 2013. I have not decided yet. Price wise here in New york/ New jersey Invoice price on the Accord is do able right now. I would say by Jan 2013 I could buy for 500 below invoice. That is my target price on the Accord. The 2013 Hyundia Genesis Pricing will be determined by Supply and Demand. My target price on the Genesis will be starting at 1000 below Dealers Invoice price and No dealerships Doc Fee's added on to sale. I will work my below invoice number up to no more than 500 below invoice. Thats where my bottom line price to buy this car stands.. As you get older and wiser you look to get the best bang for your buck. The Hyundia Genesis is one of the best bangs for the buck out there. I own a 2012 Bmw, X5 and this one is my last high end vehicle. There are many good vehicles being built now under 45k.............. Good luck

WOW, that's an awesome price. Did you have any other rebates (military, loyalty, etc.) to get the price so low?
Good luck with it...

Just an FYI. Anyone can get those rebates. I am not a veteran nor a former Hyundai owner but I was able to get all the so-called rebates, over $2000.
I was very clear that I was not a veteran or a loyalty customer but that I wanted to pay approx. $2400 under invoice.
Two dealers agreed to my offer. Of course, three others didn't.

I have no idea what type of rebates I have gotten. I follow Brian's and Steve's calculation to figure out my offer price. Initially, I asked for $20400 OTD for a basic model without package. The dealer agreed to that price. However, I went to the wrong dealer, that dealer doesn't have the color I want but they offerred me $20000 OTD to take another color. The 2nd color choice they have has the package built in. So I added $600. I guess we don't have to know of what current incentives or rebates, they always have something going on. Just follow Brian's calculation. You will never go wrong. Remember to purchase your car at the end of the month. Call all dealerships to tell them you offer price. It is so much easier than negotiating back and forth. Good luck.
Thanks Steve and Brian for your advices.
I was offerred $1295 for 10 yrs/?? miles, $0 deductible hyundai Platinum extended warranty (administer by Fidelity), should I buy it? Finance manager said I can purchase it within a week. The reason why I am considering is too many electronic components that can fail easily, like bluetooth, computer parts...etc. Please advice
