#356 of 578 Is this a good deal?
Aug 04, 2011 (7:35 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!

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.

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!

Just sharing for the benefit of the forum - I just purchased a EX V6 FWD with no additional packages. MSRP was $27,950 + $800 dest = $28,750. I paid $27,313, pretty close to invoice. I did however trade in a 2002 Toyota Rav 4 with 100K miles for $7,500 which was probably worth more.

is 27,313 the OTD price which including the TTL but not the $7500 trade in? What the tax rate?

$27,313 only includes the destination fee ($800). TTL was added to that amount and then $7500 + $2000 rebates applied as down payment. OTD was about $20,500.

I think I just bought a nearly identical car and I paid $25,325 which included $2000 in rebates. I didn't get the cargo net, cargo cover or any of the other extras you have so your deal is $670 higher because of those additional features. Seems like a pretty fair deal to me.

Thanks for the response. How do they calculate tax?
25,992 + TTL - Downpayment
25,992 -downpayment +TTL?
