I am new to the forum and the whole car buying experience.
I am looking to buy my first car.
I graduated 2 years ago so I will not get the new graduate credit. I do not own Hyundai so I will not qualify for that credit as well.
I want to make offers to dealerships this weekend and close the deal by Christmas.
I have couple of questions.
Will dealerships have Christmas specials or incentives to meet yearly goals at end of December? Should I wait for last week of December?
I was also told if I go into dealership on a day when no one is around (snow storm or other holidays when people are unlikely to visit) I am more likely to get a better deal. Is that correct? Should I try to go in on a weekday or a less crowded day?
Could you guys tell me if the following offer is reasonable for GLS with Pop?
Should I offer 19000 before taxes?
Holdback (-3%): -646
Offer price: 18893
Description Invoice MSRP
Base Price $20,105 $20,995
Midnight Black $0 $0
PEP $660 $725
Destination Fee $775 $775
Total Price $21,540 $22,495

Yes $19000 is exactly what you should off. The only addition amounts are state taxes, no dealer documentation fees.
Don't explain how you arrived at that price and don't get into the legacy or student discount stuff. They may want you to finance a minimum amount in order to get to this low price. If so, I suggest agreeing but pay it off within days unless, of course, you want a loan.
With these numbers I doubt if Christmas sales will make a difference price wise. The closer to end of month the better.
Tell them you will call other dealers. I would do the negotiating on the phone. Less pressure and stress for you.

Thank you very much.
I have some money saved up but it might be good for my credit history to take a loan and pay it off.

First off, this forum was great help in understanding and going through the negotiation of a new car buying. I just concluded a deal on Sonata limited (Base) w/o any packages but with all weather mats/cargo mats for $22,500.00 OTD.
Dealer has following listed on their website:
Mfg Invoice Price:$25,383
Dealer online Price: $21,245
My sale price was :$20,900 + T&T (approx)
Dealer was adamant at $22.944.00 OTD price, however was able to negotiate to this price. This is the best deal one can get in DC metro area.
I will be going to pick the car up in next couple of hours. Let you know how the deal go.

Make sure they don't make you pay documentation fees which could be $400+. I would tell them that its a deal breaker. Maybe call before you go so you're not surprised.

In NC, I am seeing mid 17's for gls and around 21000 for limiteds. I've seen Limited models with tech going for as little as 23700. These mind you, are the internet posted prices. Do a cars.com search with a wide radius. I've found truecar to be super high for this model.

21K for limiteds? That's an unbelievable price. Please keep us posted on what you actually end up paying.

That is a great price and great job. 22.34% off MSRP is very low.
