Good evening, yall. I need some help here. Buying my first new car. I live in HW Houston. I want to buy the 2013 Sonata Limited (2.4L w/ 198 HP). With Premium Package. Floormats, Mudguards, etc. Total MSRP on the website comes out to $30,150. I have heard your first offer should be 30% or so off the MSRP. And then work from there. I dont know if this is true or not. What should be the highest price I should settle at w/ taxes and Title? Any comments would be much appreciated.

To phrase that question a little better, what should my target price be?
#8773 of 8898 2013 Sonata SE 2.4L with Navigation/Harbor Gray

I recently bought this car in New Orleans.
MSRP: 27,515 (invoice $26,085)= NAV, Carpet floor mats, Cargo Mat, Cargo Net, Mirror w/homelink. (salesman added window etching/Ipod cord- tried to get window tint but the dealership didn't do window tinting)
Dealer added "value": $1095 (my est. invoice & $572) Accent package? Paint/fabric protector/splash guards.***words of advice, shopping on websites do not prepare you for the actual dealer added items that you have no idea about until you see the car. The first place I went to, had $1,700 worth of extras. These can catch you off guard as you don't really know how to properly negotiate them. I was thrown off, as $27,515 MSRP was my price I was working with and getting in my head before I went to the dealership. I also went on Fitzmall and found the exact same car(diff color) with options for $27,515 MSRP and printed out the sheet and had it with me. The lowest price on Fitzmall was $23,300 and this included all the current rebates.**** This was the best # I saw in all my research and crunching the invoice/incentive numbers myself.
Total MSRP of my car dealership was $28,606(Invoice~$26,675)
Final car price $25,657 - $1,500 - $500 = $23,657. Almost 5k below MSRP.
Add 8.5% tax + $232 doc fee (didn't bother to negotiate any more at such a small cost) total out the door was $25899. I shot the dealer a really low OTD price of $25000 & then $25,500 but he complained about losing $$ on the deal. I had no real bargaining power with no trade in and not putting any money down.
At the end of the day, I paid just $1018 below invoice without any incentives or $3,000 with them all. I think in the south some of the incentives have expired. I actually gave up the $1,500 in Hyundai incentives to get the 0% for 60months, which saves me ~ $400 over the life of the loan.

What would be a good OTD price for a 2013 Limited 2.0T w/ premium package and could you break it down similar to the post above this one? Thanks

I bought it from Conceilla Hyundai in Conshoken(spelling?), PA. It is about 2 and a half-3hrs from Long Island. MSRP was $27,700 and got it for $23,150 with taxes/tags included.
Way to get it down is to go in to a dealership, talk to them and make sure they know you are interested in purchasing a car within next few weeks.
Next, no matter what, you need to do is let the dealership know you will be going to another Hyundai dealership and get another quote. If you need to, tell the next place your going too that the other place offered you a deal $200-$300 less then the actual offer. Getting a good deal is all about bluffing. Regardless, you can always come back to the previous deal offered. Remember, dealerships do not want to lose to competition. Getting a good deal is all about bluffing in the right manner and have enough self control to leave. Also, I do not believe you will be able to get an extra upgrade for that price since the invoice was like 25,200 and I got it for 23,150. Maybe you can then, I did not want to go to each dealership more then twice.

What was the price before tax and tags? Your numbers don't add up. What discounts (loyalty, military, etc.) did you have? Was 27700 the window sticker or a BS dealer pack sticker? In a previous post, your numbers were 1600 trade + 2000 down + 72 payments of 307...
