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

I just got this exact car yesterday in Alexandria, Va (outside of Wash DC) for OTD $27,700 - provided I did the 2.9% financing through Hyundai at 5 years. (could have done the 48months at 1.9%.). To restate, I got the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0T with panoramic sunroof and Navigation. Hope this helps.

Forgot to mention that I qualified for one rebate as a current Hyundai owner as well (Hyundai Tucson '06).

Keep in mind, you can pay off that "forced" finance as soon as you want. They forced us to take a loan as well, but we paid it off in a matter of days. That way we get the $1000 financing rebate/incentive, but still do a virtually all cash deal.
