#8796 of 8853 hard to believe this one
Jan 14, 2013 (9:40 am)
This is the one i find impossible:
"I just bought the Sonata Limited 2.0T with Navigation for $23,200. Tags and Taxes are included."

Impossible? Hardly. Rare? Sure. But that's ONE sale, likely under very unusual circumstances which could include: 1) dealer trying to make a month/quarter/year-end incentive; 2) unpopular color; 3) demo vehicle; 4) a low/no sales tax state.
Will everyone get such a good deal? No. Can ONE PERSON get such a good deal? Sure. It's a big country.

Don't see why you can't offer 21850 or 21900 and go from there. Worst they can say is no, and if you're not in a total hurry you could see how things shake out nearer the end of the month. Also, I would agree that you should get offers from the internet managers at several dealerships before going in. Easier to negotiate over the phone from home instread of sitting in the dealership. I negotiated 2 leases last quarter gettting the cap cost from the internet manager and it saved time and money.
Hope this helps. Good luck!
#8799 of 8853 Sonata Limited with Tech Package
Jan 16, 2013 (4:11 pm)
I just emailed several dealers in the Pacific Northwest and very quickly got this price. for 3 email exchanges with a couple of dealers in less than 2 hours. No haggle which I love. I stayed firm and the final email said ok they had one for that price. Maybe I should have gone lower. It is the non turbo model.
2013 sonata limited 2.4 non turbo w/tech package
$24500 plus sales tax.
What does the board say ....Steve Thanks for the tips
#8800 of 8853 Sonata Turbo Limited?
Jan 19, 2013 (4:39 am)
I live in Tampa Florida and I am looking for a new or CPO Turbo Limited to buy in the next few months. The biggest dealer around gave me an internet price of approx. 31K OTD for a 2013, Limited Turbo without Navigation. Another dealership had a 2012 Limited Turbo, no navigation with 18K miles for 23,991 + TTL. I like the idea of a CPO but I am wondering if either of these are good deals.
Thanks for any insights.

I would find a third dealer. You are getting no favors from these two dealers.

That's what I was thinking, especially after seeing some of the deals people on here have gotten.
#8803 of 8853 Purchase now or later? New or certified pre-owned?
Jan 20, 2013 (5:16 pm)
Thank you! Wish I'd found this wealth of great info earlier!
My goal: Pacific Blue Pearl/gray 2.4 Limited w/ nav package (hopefully PZEV). I'm in Southern CA.
Very low-mileage 2012 certified pre-owned--This was my target until I finally noticed the constant holiday special TV ads and shifted focus to a 2013 model. I wasted time working with one lying dealership; by the time I started shopping others, they'd sold so many Hyundais they didn't really care whether I bought one or not. Decided they might be more motivated in a couple of months. Best offer: $24,900 (out of town dealership; would have travel expenses)
Question 1: One dealership told me they suspect the PacBlue will be discontinued because they're not receiving them any more. Anybody know about this?
Question 2: Incentives have largely disappeared now. Any intel about whether there will be more as the year goes on? Am I better off sitting tight until some 2013s get repossessed and reappear as cert. pre-owned, or just bit the bullet and pay more than some of you to be sure I can get the color I want?
Any/all advice greatly appreciated!

Hi ruthg3. Thanks for getting back to me. Would you mind telling me exactly the car you got with what options? Was it the limited or the limited turbo, etc.? Also, when you say you got it for 21965 plus fees and taxes, is that including the 1500 and 500 rebate or did you get that taken off the price of 21965? Thanks again.

It was a 2013 Limited (not turbo) with carpeted floor mats, cargo mat, cargo net, sunroof wind deflector (we wanted black/grey interior & the only one they could find came with that), mud guards.
MSRP $27,075, Invoice $25,314. The price we got included the $1500 incentive and the $500 loyalty rebate. We leased and that number did not include the $595 finance fee, mv fee, doc fee (others in this blog say you should negotiate that out, we felt ok since we'd gotten the price down already) or taxes.
We also worked through the internet managers and got a quote before we went to the dealership to do the paperwork. It took several phone calls back & forth while she talked to the GM.
I suggest clarifying in advance the pieces of the deal - capitalized cost, residual value (they should tell you percentage) and money factor. I also suggest figuring out what you expect the monthly payment to be with the numbers they quote BEFORE you get to the dealership. They first quoted me this low cap cost, but the monthly amount didn't match with the % and MF I knew about from this blog. Once I figured it out with their cap cost numbers, they honored the deal.
Hope this helps. Best of luck!
