#8689 of 8898 Sonata Limited 2.4L Paid
Dec 23, 2012 (7:53 am)
Thanks to posting in this forum earlier on that alerted me to advertised price of around $21500 for 2.4L 2013 Sonata Limited in NC. I checked Fritzmall.com in the DC area and they also have similar price. The price includes the $1500 Hyundai Finance rebate and $500 competitive rebate. If you don't qualify for these, then if will be $2000 more. I ended closing a deal in Greensboro, NC for $ 22450 Out-the-Door (tax, tag, & fees included). It came with cargo net, floor mat, wheel lock plus all standard features of the Limited. I financed $10000 at 0.9% for 36 months which I intend to pay off within the first month. Don't trust the price on cars.com, kbb.com etc. You can find something lower than the so called Fair Market Price which they claim is the average price people are paying for a similar car.

Did you have to work a lot to get this?

The quote through true car ($24347) is less than the invoice price ($25211).
Not including the $1500 bonus cash, Is this the best price someone one could get for a 2013 Sonata 2.4L Auto Limited?.
If not, what will be the best price to offer?.

No, that was a pretty straight forward deal. I corresponded by email with the Internet Sales at the dealership and then went in to make them an offer of $22450 OTD. They agreed but they did not have the color I wanted so they went and got one from surrounding dealers and notified me two days later to pick up the car. Everything went really smooth as far as car buying is concerned.

How did I do?
See my deal below.
GLS + POP package + Window tint + Wheel locks + cargo net + floor mats + cargo mat + mud guard + ECM homelink + pinstriping + rear bumper protector
I paid 19000 before title and tax
I only got holiday cash 1500 + comp car 500 rebates
OTD is 20400 (refused all extra warranties). Tax here in Texas is 6%.
Invoice price is 22080 for this car with accessories (including destination fee, 21300 without destination fee)
I know people got 18k deal (with other rebates like vet and new grad??) but is this good enough considering accessories included?

michellej87, I dont think you got a good deal. But if you already bought the car, then forget about getting the best deal, and enjoy your car. There will always be people who paid more and less.

How much do you think I overpaid?
What would you say good price was for the car I bought with the accessories?
Another buyer in the thread posted that he paid 18548 but not with all the accessories I purchased (tint, etc).
This is my first new car purchase and I thought I did everything right.
When they let me walk out of the door I thought I was close to a good deal.
Looks like they were bluffing knowing that I would not go to too many stores.
Oh well, at least I got what I can afford (instead of what I want).

Please let me know if you were able to get a good deal. It would be really helpful if you could update us what happened with your deal.
This forum is really great and thanks for all the guys posting their experience. Hope I could also get a great deal soon. I will also post my experience soon.
#8697 of 8898 2013 Sonata maintenance
Dec 24, 2012 (9:00 pm)
As many of you know I bought a new Sonata for my Dad. He lives in Florida and I live in NH. I haven't seen the car since he got it a few months ago. He's at about 3000 miles.
Isn't the first scheduled maint. Supposed to be at 7500 miles?
Does Hyundai cover any of the cost for these? The reason I ask is that I have a couple of Toyotas and they pay in full for scheduled maint. for the first 2 years. Does Hyundai do this? I couldn't find this info on the web site and I want to make sure he's not taken advantage of by the dealer.
Thx in advance.

I am looking for a 2013 Sonata GLS with PEP. I haven't closed the deal yet.
I found out the following info:
- It appears that this car can be obtained for $18,200 - $18,700 after $2400/$2500 rebates ($1500 HMF, $500 owner/comp rebate and $400 student/$500 veteran rebate) before tax.
- Some members in this forum say that you can try to get an incentive of about $2000, whether, you qualify for these rebates or not.
- In some states, price before tax could be cheaper but the tax rate would be higher and in some cases, tax is charged prior to the rebates. Hence, it could possibly nullify the difference in cost. Hence, look out for the OTD price.
- In general, higher the number of dealers in a state (including nearby states), better the chances of getting an aggressive price.
- Try to find out the fleet agent in a particular state. The chances of getting an aggressive price is much higher over there.
- Better to complete the purchase towards the end of the month.
- A dealer could be really looking to sell one additional car in a particular month end to increase his sales figure (for example 49 Sonatas to 50 per month) to get higher incentive from Hyundai. The dealer could be offering very aggressive price to attain his goal.
- According to my research, the OTD price of a GLS with PEP with standard accessories, like cargo net, cargo mat, etc., (these are random ones chosen by Hyundai for each car) seems to be about $19,500 - $20,000 ($500 difference could be due to number of dealers present in a state (or nearby states), population, tax rate, rebates one qualifies for, etc.,).
- You may be getting an OTD price of $20,000 in your state and $19600 in a neighboring state. But, if you consider your travel expenses, it may be almost same or the difference could be very minimum (about $100-$200).
- There may be few cases, where people would have got additional free stuff like few hundred dollars worth of car wash/service, besides getting an OTD price of about $$19700 - $20,000. It may not be possible for all to get such offers. It is YMMV (your mileage may vary).
I will be happy, if I can get a GLS with PEP and standard accessories for about $20,000 OTD. Many have obtained such a price, according to the postings here.
However, I found few extra-ordinary deals mentioned here. It could be due to the factors mentioned above or due to some other factor that I missed.
