Hyundai Sonata, Sedan
Jul 13, 2013 (9:50 pm)
I am a newbie and a first time car buyer and wanted to appreciate each one of you for all the great information provided in the forum. I am in the market for a brand new 2013 Sonata GLS + Popular package (automated driver seat +fog lights + heated front seats). This is what I was offered by a dealer in Arizona
Total Price without taxes - 17800
With Taxes/ documentation/ other fees - 20300
Can anyone please let me know if this is a great price. If not how much scope of negotiation do i have. I am very new to buying a car and would appreciate all the help i can get.

Hyundai was also giving $500 to owners of a Hyundai who traded for another one.

How high are taxes where you live?? Even with a 10% tax, you are paying over $700 for "documentation/other fees". So the amount over $17,800 seems high. Maybe the documentation fee is high, i.e. "dealer profit". It would help if you could break down the transaction for us, e.g.:
MSRP (including options and destination charge)
- dealer discount
- rebates (itemize them)
- other discounts (if any)
+ sales tax
+ documentation fee
+ license/title fees
+ other fees?

After incentive, $19000 before TTL, includes PEP, shimmering white exterior, carpeted floor mats, cargo mat, cargo net, auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, mud guards, and wheel locks. Total out-of-door $21160.
Easy experience with internet sales.

This forum has been great for me as I researched buying my stock '13 Sonata GLS, which I picked up yesterday....thought I'd share my deal:
Price of the car after discounts: $18,495.00
Total out-the-door: $20,011.00
I'm amazed at what you get with the Sonata for under 20 grand. And the 10-year powertrain warranty is the best in the business. The dealership was OK to deal with, for the most part....did everything over the internet until it was time to sign for the car. Beware the upsell tactics of the finance manager, though - he's going to try to convince you finance through the dealership (I advise against it - secure financing ahead of time) and he'll try to get you to extend the bumper-to-bumper warranty (I chose not to - the Hyundai warranty seems more than adequate).
Happy driving, Sonatites!

That is better than I can get in FL. For the same 2013 Sonata GLS + Popular package (automated driver seat +fog lights + heated front seats) with some dealer add-ons like mats, cargo net, fancy rearview mirror, the best I can get is $21,000 OTD.
I've spoke to 4 different dealers and all 4 are within $300 of each other.
Is Florida MORE expensive?

BTW: That is a cash price with no trade-in.

How were you able to get that large of a discount?
That's an excellent price. Wish I could negotiate mine down that much. Any tips?
#8871 of 8898 Offer price for 2013 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sdn 2.4L Auto Limited?
Jul 24, 2013 (10:52 pm)
Hi all - I'm brand new to the world of car purchasing, and could use a tip or two on haggling. The vehicle I'm looking at is a 2013 Hyundai Sonata 4dr Sdn 2.4L Auto Limited, with the premium package, black leather interior.
The dealer's website has the MSRP listed as $29,980 and the "Internet Price" as $26,030. There's also a link that allows me to submit an offer to them online.
A few questions:
- Is the "Internet Price" different than the price they'd start me at in-store? Namely, is it lower, and as such, would that limit the amount I'm able to haggle?
- Is it wise / recommended to put an offer in and negotiate through the web?
And most importantly:
- What would your recommendation be for my starting offer? Would a 23k initial offer be realistic? TrueCar tells me my "target price" should be around 25.7k, but I'm seeing numbers by other recent buyers on this forum listing their final price in the 24k range.
Any tips would be appreciated!

everything is negotiable- I am also in the process of buying and the bottom line is... when you go into the dealership and lay all your cards on the table, price should still be fluid--- you can always walk out and see if that works!
