I think all of the rebates can be combined. I got the $1,000 cash back and $500 competitive bonus. I didn't qualify for the Military Bonus or the New Graduate bonus. There is also a $500 Kia finance bonus, but you cannot combine it with the Special Financing Rates. You either take the cash or get the rate. For me, I opted for the 3.9% financing for 72 months which will save me more than $500 over the life of the loan.
Advertising is deceptive. I saw a 2012 Sorento advertised for $18,997 recently, but that didn't include $800 freight, a dealer added $495 appearance package, and a dealer added $795 Paint and Fabric protection package that they added to the advertised stock vehicle. It also included every single rebate totaling $3K. In the end, if you back everything out, it came to just over $24K, which was almost the exact MSRP on the window sticker.

I paid that for my 2011 in June of 2010 and mine has backup camera, heated front seats, white pearl metallic paint, roof rack, fog lamps, mats, cargo tray and cargo net, etc. I love it. 15,000+ miles and no problems. I talked my sister into buying the same one, but hers came w/3rd row seat. She paid more.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
#352 of 586 2012 Sorento EX lease deal...
Jul 20, 2011 (1:56 pm)
I was offered $25,585 (not including the $1500 rebate) for a 2012 Sorento FWD 4 Cylinder automatic with an MSRP of $27,340. Seems like a decent price but I want a 36 month lease and the money factor they gave me was 0.00144. Is that a good money factor is it flexible? Also, can I waive or negotiate out the acquisition fee of $595?

The money factor and acquisition fee are not negotiable. That's set by Kia Motor Finance when you lease through them. Your only other option would be to lease through a 3rd party and see what their rates and fees are.
#354 of 586 Did i get a good deal?

Just leased a 2012 SX with Sunroof, got it for $946 down (1st monthly, registration, etc.), $489/month including NJ taxes. MSRP was $37,150, negotiated price was $33,480 minus a $1k rebate ($32,480 total).
Good deal? I hope so!!
#355 of 586 2012 Sorento Buying experience
Jul 31, 2011 (3:26 pm)
I just bought a Sorento from Murray Kia in Conchohocken, PA and here are the numbers. It is a EX with no extra packages. The sticker price was 27135. My negotiated price without incentives was 25855 - $1280 below sticker. According to edmunds the mark-up from invoice is 1450 so that says I paid $170 over invoice. I also got a further $1000 off from the cash back incentive from Kia. Did not qualify for the other incentives.
The car is FWD with the new GDI 4 cylinder. Rated at 22/32 mpg. After 100 miles around suburbia stop and go driving I'm getting 21.5. Very happy so far...
#356 of 586 Is this a good deal?
Aug 04, 2011 (6:35 pm)
I am trying to decide whether this is a good deal. Id appreciate your comments.
I am looking at a 2012 Kia Sorento 2.4l EX AWD with no packages installed.
The MSRP is 28,835; Invoice is 27,700; Rebates (that i qualify for) are $1000 + $500 - so that makes my price before taxes and tags - 26,200
My out the door price including 6% sales tax and 228 registration/title fee is 28,000.
Do you guys think this is a good price or am I being ripped off here? Thanks!
#357 of 586 Kia Sorento LX V6 AWD 3rd Row Seat
Aug 09, 2011 (5:05 am)
Plus a few other minor options like cargo cover and carpet floormats and things like that.
Paid $25,963 out the door. Used all the discounts from the factory, totalling $2,500. Remember that tax is on the negotiated amount before the discounts. Financing was 3.9% Milwaukee area.
Aug 12, 2011 (8:05 pm)
I think it was a good deal, just purchased a fully loaded 2012 SX AWD, with options 39,700. Price with total discounts $34,000, including a generous allowance for my trade ($2,600 more than what I reasearched it should be worth). Joplin, MO dealership.

This forum could be a powerful tool if enough people post to it. I referred to it often during my deal hunt.
I just bought the same car (2012 LX V6 AWD) in Vermont with 3rd Row Seats and 7-seat carpeted floormats for $24,895 off the lot after $2500 in incentives (so really $27,395), plus $100 "dealer document fee" and the tax and title stuff.
Drove it right off the lot, through Hurricane Irene damage, on a 300-mile roadtrip. Super smooth!
Good luck and happy hunting!
