hi i'm 20. i'm a first time car buyer that needs a lot of guidance.
i am looking for a hyundai sonata limited with premium package. i have $7,000 saved up. what should my first step be? my grandpa will cosign for me and he has a top credit score.
should i negotiate a price and then go in for financing or is there a separate process if you are getting financed. i don't want to get ripped off so any step-by-step advice for me would be greatly appreciated. im not familiar with any financing terms or stuff like that so i need some simple explanations. thanks

The best thing to do is to stay out of the dealership and not let them get their hooks into you. My suggestion would be to call local dealerships in your area and understand what fees are involved in buying the car. Locally here, there are four charges that need to be considered:
Price of vehicle
State sales tax
State license fees
Dealer admin or doc fee (this is junk and goes into the pocket of the dealer)
The dealer should be able to provide you with the second third and fourth fees listed above. State sales tax, state license fees and dealer admin fees will be the same no matter what what car you purchase from the dealership. Negotiate a total price including all for the items above, this is also known as the drive-off price. This will not allow the dealer to add any additional costs to your negotiated price prior to getting to showroom.
Based on pricing in my local area I would start off with a price of $23,000 for this vehicle that you are looking to acquire (prices can vary significantly by area, use truecar to get an idea of price in your area). I would use this figure adding the other three figures above and that would be offer made to the dealership. Hopefully you have the flexibility of maybe two or three colors that you would take this gives the dealer the opportunity to work with you on price a little bit more. Good luck.

are the same.
Hyundai Finance generally has some of the lowest rates u will find.
60 months 0% even on their hybrids; Camry hybrids almost never get that.
Maybe they will soon as the newest Camry flunked the offset crash test.

i ended up pulling the trigger on this car today.
I negotiated the payment down to $365.00 incl taxes. I also made them give me a 3 year prepaid service contract for free and made them throw in some hyundai keychains
I paid absolutely nothing out of pocket today, just signed and drove away. My first bill will come in the mail a month from today. I'm happy.
#8880 of 8898 Sales record
Jul 29, 2013 (6:17 am)
Hyundai and affiliate Kia on Sunday said U.S. sales of the hybrid versions of their Sonata and K5 mid-sized passenger cars hit records in May.
Hyundai sold 2,129 Sonata hybrids and Kia 1,206 K5 hybrids there last month. The two automakers rolled out their first hybrid passenger cars in 2011.
Hyundai said combined sales of hybrid vehicles in May were up 44 percent from the same period last year, while their cumulative combined sales in the first five months of this year rose 30.7-percent on-year.
Combined monthly sales have surpassed 3,000 cars since March, Hyundai said in a press release.
The U.S. car market slump and high oil prices triggered demand for fuel-efficient models. Overall sales of hybrid cars in 2012 rose 62.5 percent from the previous year.

i have a 2011 azera and went into a kia dealership. i didn't like the price quoted me (22,000) which included my trade in. the kia cadenza which i looked at had a msrp of 39,500. he tried to talk me into a lease and finally came down to 241. a month for three years ( no down payment) and 12,000 miles a year. he would buy my car afor 10,000 Much too low-only have 17,000 miles on it. i will probably go back and get a much lower quote for leasing and a higher figure for my car. this is my second azera ( loved them both) but i do like that cadenza.
bottom line you could probably do much better for a lease.

Sorry for the wrong thread .. too many edmunds windows opened
Hi guys ..
I came to know about this site a few days ago from my friend as I was mulling to buy a new car and have been hooked to it ever since. Thanks a lot for the amazing insight on the car sales process. I hope I can get some help as well.
I have asked for some online price quotes for 2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6. Some of them replied with the simple MSRP numbers asking me to call. I havent yet but i went down to a dealership today and got the following numbers. Lemme know if they are alright.
Price: 27k (includes destination & handling)
Doc fee & DMV: 360 + 400
Sales tax: 7% NJ
Comes to a total of 29650. No other bonuses offered. I am graduating in Dec but the honda site says we should graduate in the next four months to be eligible for the 500$ rebate
Can you please comment on these numbers and if I shud counter with something?
