I see your type all the time. Depending on the car and its availability and demand for it, will determine if I even take your offer to the manager. I have never and I repeat never, gave up holdback which can be anywhere from 200 and up depending on the price of the car. I have sold many at preferred pricing (GM) then minus rebates but never minus holdback. The only time I have seen us do it was on a 430 day old Corvette and we gave up 50% of holdback. We sell plenty of new cars and have no problem saying NO. I hear about kickbacks as reason to lose money on a deal. Kickbacks are given if you meet requirements on CSI, units sold, ect. If you are one away maybe, if not there is no benefit selling a car to someone who is taking it to another dealership for service. We get a $100 fine for a survey that is not COMPLETELY SATISFIED. My experience is customers like yourself hit you hard on the survey, you dont get referrals and repeat deals. Not worth it at all.
Oh, I understand why you think all sales reps lie but as a hole that is not true. I imagine you tell yourself that as a way to make yourself feel better about lieing to the sales rep. This is about CUSTOMER SERVICE and customer service has never been about money. It is how well you treat your customer, take care of them before, during, and after the sale. Those who pay more get there moneys worth, those who do not will get there moneys worth as well in the form of, TAKE A NUMBER!!!!

Why do you keep posting the same message? You posted almost the same thing about 2 weeks ago.
In the meantime I and others on this forum helped people save thousands of dollars.
Is your intention for being on this forum to mislead people to pay more ?
Consider the recent poster who purchased a fairly loaded Sonata Limited for less than $25,000. This is probably a $30,000+ MSRP vehicle.
This person is very happy to benefit from tips on this forum. Isn't that what this forum is all about?
I stand by my earlier opinion, even stronger now. Never trust a car salesman.
Have a great Thanksgiving.

Thanks for everyone's input and advice on this forum (especially from Steve). This was my very first car shopping experience and before I went shopping I really dreaded it (I drove a 94 Camry that my family's had for 19 years into the ground just to avoid going car shopping). But because of the tips I found on here, the process went better than expected.
2013 Hyundai Sonata SE
My price before tax: $20,840 (This included $1000 rebate for HMF. I financed $7500 and paid it all off before first payment was due.)
My cost included the title and registration fees ($296) so I paid my state's sales tax of 7% on top. My OTD price was $22,300.
Per the advice that I found here, I avoided extra fees (window etching and doc) by saying verbatim, "it's a deal breaker."
Happy shopping everyone!

Great news. Glad we were able to help you get a great deal.
And with no doc fee, thats even better.
Enjoy the ride.

Hi Steve, Thanks for all the information your are providing, I am learning a lot from this forum. A couple of questions. Do you include the destination/freight charge in the invoice? You subtract the holdback and all the incentives from the invoice, anything else? And then add the tax and license fee, is that correct to get the OTD price. Thanks again.

Yes, I include the destination/freight charge in the invoice price. You can't negotiate that since that's what the manufacturer/shipper charges the dealer on every vehicle.
Nope, that's it.
Glad this is helpful.

I'm on the market for a 2013 Sonata 2.0T Limited with navigatation and moonroof. I've been offered 29350 OTD. It sounds a litte high to me, just would like to know, what would be a relastic number to not be ripped off.
I'm new on this forum and appreciate all the help i can get.

Not knowing what state you are in, we can't help you with OTD. Focus on MSRP, invoice, holdback, and pre-tax pricing, etc.
Read other articles in this thread explaining negotiating tips.

Forgot to mention, I'm in Illinois. The dealer already know, that i'm a tough buyer. To be honest i dont care how they come up with the number as long as i like it. Alreday told them that 29350 OTD not gonna fly.
I think i will offer them 27750 OTD take it or leave it. I can walk away as i did last year, and they are aware of that
