#434 of 586 2013 Kia Sorento EX V6 AWD w/Premium Package 2
Aug 01, 2012 (5:09 pm)
Ok, this may be a bit lengthy but if it helps someone than bonus to you! I am in Chicago IL, I went to 4 total dealerships, I had a friend that worked at one of them. Obviously, he gave me the best price. Had all the standard features of the EX, has the uvo system with rear camera display, bluetooth, power seats with heated front seats, leather trim, infinity surround sound audio system, 3rd row seat, panoramic sunroof, rear bumper protector, cargo net, wheel locks, etc. MSRP had a $800 freight charge bringing the total MSRP to $34,015.
After checking on 4 different KIA dealerships, my buddy still had the best price beat out there by $600. I paid $28,700 plus ttl. I thought I did pretty well. Love this truck, love the way it looks, the way it drives, the sunroof is sweet, 3rd row seat is not bad, has enough toys to make most anyone happy and the EX was plenty fine for me as the SX was about $4,500 more on the MSRP and woulda threw me back even more financially.
so $28,700 long story short. If you are in Chicago area, go to Grossinger Kia in Lincolnwood and ask for Louie Vine. Tell him the birdman sent ya!

Harvitt, congrats - think that's a great deal. Also bought a 2013 Sorento SX AWD (V6) with premium package, cargo net, cargo cover and wheel locks at end of July. Sticker on mine was $37,625; Edmunds listed invoice at $35,200; dealer invoice was $35,552 (with ad fee built in). Managed to get it for $31,580 with $1,000 competitor bonus and $1,000 customer cash. Could have got another $500 off if I took their financing but 2.9% they were offering (and wouldn't negotiate off of) was more than 1.79% I had in hand. Over term of the loan would have saved $100 on total price of the car had I taken their 2.9% but the $10/month more on the payment wasn't worth it to me, especially since I knew I qualified for a better rate than they were offering and they'd make about $1,000 on the interest paid. Still don't understand why they wouldn't deal on the interest rate - thought maybe I pissed them off too much but maybe they just made enough money and wanted to close it. Either way I'm happy since two dealers wouldn't go below $32,500 and a third dropped out at $31,920.
To those looking for a deal in Aug 2013, don't think $1,000 competitor bonus, $1,000 customer cash and $500 financing incentives are available anymore. I was checking back to see if I should have waited but seems incentives are geared toward leasing this month, at least from what I can see. Still, think you should be able to get the same car for $33,580 max - probably less - got to think there's "hidden" incentives if leasing incentives are the only advertised incentive out there. Good luck - my suggestion would be to do everything by email if you can. Only had to spend 20 minutes at the dealership to sign the papers. I never negotiate there, takes too much time and feel it limits my ability to shop their quotes and research their "misstatements".
#436 of 586 2013 Sorento LX FWD w/convenience pkge

2013-LX with convenience package, 3rd row seats, remote start, cargo net, wheel locks. $23400 before tax/title after rebates. Looked at larger SUV's (Explorer, Pilot and Acadia) and really liked the better mileage and having the additional seating though limited to smaller passengers is what sold it. The larger SUV's comparably equipped were not even close on price. I think I got a very good deal.

I test drove a SX AWD with Premium package over the weekend. It was a nice ride. We didn't talk about the pricing. The sticker price is like in the $37K (with no cross bars) and the sale man quoted (not an exact quote) for $33K.
I am qualify for the $1500 cash back, $1500 loyal and $1500 competitive bonus on SX model. This looks like he was quoted with the Kia incentives but with no dealer discount. If you paid $31.8K, it would be a great price.
#438 of 586 Just bought one Saturday Night
Aug 20, 2012 (11:48 am)
Went to look Saturday night at an online advertised special. MSRP 27,xxx on sale for 23,000. It is a 2012 LX V6 with third row. So I went in to talk and was handed the paper showing 27,000-4,000 making it 23,000 but then added on for nitrogen, wheel locks, window etching...something else maybe and price was 26,xxx. So I said I was planning on being 25,000 out the door. He said impossible with taxes and tags we are at 25,500 blah blah.
Ended up buying it at $25,300 out the door. purchase price is listed at $23,000. Used their 2.99 financing for 6 yrs. Its a Black V6 third row. Has the chrome door handles and the side steps run the length of the car are in chrome with black circles(?) on them. Came with all floor mats and a cargo net. Think thats it. Overall I am happy with it. Looking to add maybe the dvd players in the headrests, shopping to see what the best options are for that. Would like to get the rubber cargo mats too.
#439 of 586 Purchased 2013 EX FWD 4cyl in Fort Worth
Aug 21, 2012 (12:15 pm)
Maybe this will help someone out. I purchased a 2013 EX FWD 4cyl, it had no packages, with the only options being cargo cover, cargo net and rearview mirror. Sticker was 28275.00. I got it for 24613.00 with owner loyalty. I think that I did pretty decent. The base EX is a tough find around here. If I would have bought a LX with conv package, I likely would have got a bigger discount. This is my second Sorento with the first being a base LX 4cyl. I love the vehicle, hence purchasing a second one. The resale and trade in values have been excellent on the two Kia's that I have traded in. Hope this helps someone out.
#440 of 586 Just Purchased 2013 Kia Sorento (EX V6 AWD w/ Premium Pkg)
Aug 28, 2012 (9:56 am)
In case it helps someone else, I live in upstate NY and just made the following deal on a 2013 Sorento (EX V6 AWD w/ Premium Pkg):
MSRP = $34,095 (w/ cargo cover and cargo net)
Sale Price = $31,435
Rebates/Incentives = $3000 ($1000 standard rebate + $1500 competitive bonus + $500 Kia financing)
Total Price (before taxes and fees) = $28,435
Thought it was a pretty good deal after negotiating with 4 or 5 different dealers. Curious to know whether others agree?

Brought from Fairfax Kia in Va early August Model 73222:
LX FWD GDI convenience package 3rd row seat, mats, net, cargo cover
MSRP=26,925, processing fee $499, dealer prep=$275
Rebates=$1750 (dealer incentive+competitive vehicle )
out the door w/o tax title/tags=$23,230
Other dealers couldnt match b/c Fairfax is the volume leader and get back $ for sales satisfaction. Most of them and in NYC/NJ prices were $400-800 higher. Dealer also gives free tire replacement and lifetime oil/filter changes (every 4,000 miles). Their most sold model is the SX.
Post sales note: first 500 miles mpg computer never went above 19mpg, at 2000 miles, its now 23 combined. Others note they never got anywhere near the 32 mpg highway too.
