We did lots of shopping and also drove the outback but wanted the 3rd row for the few times we have all grandchildren in car. The V6 has tons of power in fact takes a little getting used to accelerates quickly . Big difference in power between the 4cyl and the 6cyl. Have had it over a month now and extremely happy with all aspects of the Sorento. If you are a member of Costco use their auto service to find the local Kia dealer for you saves few hundred dollars. Good luck . Shop and compare and go in with a price you want to spend and be patient. The thing we had going for us was fact we didnt have an urgency to buy and I had time to shop and compare
#486 of 586 Good Deal? Advice needed

I am preparing to trade in a 2012 Forte Koup and upgrade to a 2013 Sorento EX base. I have negative equity on the Koup, but will get 0.9% APR for 72 months on the Sorento. Monthly payments at $399 with $1k down from my pocket, but will also get $500 loyalty bonus. Any thoughts?

Tough to tell on quality of deal without knowing how much negative equity there is on the Forte( what do you owe and what is he giving you as a trade in)? The MSRP on the base EX 2wd 4 cylinder should be 26950..your paying 29728 with the down payment and the 72 payments of 399. On a 399 payment for 72 mths at 0.9 Interest rate that means he is charging you 28,000 for the car that has an MSRP of 26950. If he is applying your 500 rebate to the price then he is charging you 28,500 for the car. that lists at 26950. Work the numbers and shop around. Dealers are great at asking you what you can afford and if you told him 399 a month chances are its not a good deal

I know I won't get a response before I make this deal but my current deal is the SX AWD Premium Package for $32,200. My target number was the $31,800 that I saw a few folks on this blog get so I asked them to through in side steps that cost about $500. We were going to purchase those anyway. So I basically got this for $31,700. I believe they gave me a pretty good deal on my trade in which is a 2007 GMC Acadia SLE with 68,000 miles. KBB has at $14,483 in very good condition. My Acadia has driver door damage estimated at about $700.00 and a massively cracked windshield and they offered me (after much negotiation) $14,500. I did research with my credit union on % rates. The credit union offered me 1.99% but I was surprised when the dealer offered 0.9% for 60 mos or 1.9% for 72 mos. So I obviously will go with the dealer financing. Any thoughts on where I may have done better somewhere in this deal? I live in Southwest PA.

PS....If you are doing the financing through KIA and taking the 1.9% rate then you are entitled to the KIA financing rebate also..make sure they gave that to you..GOOD LUCK

I am ex military but they said I couldn't use that discount because of some of the other discounts I am using.... one is a competitor discount not sure bout some of the others. We did most negotiating over the phone after I left the dealer so I don't know how they came down to the final offer. I am not sure what Cosco is so I will google it. Thanks for the quick response.

Just FYI...you are absolutely qualified for the military discount.....one discount has nothing to do with the other..I got military discount..financing discount and competitor discount when I bought my EX....I had dealers tell me I wasnt qualified because I wasnt active military which again wasnt true...thats 500.00 that they are putting in their pocket and not yours......Costco is one of those bulk retailers you may have Sams Club by you same thing.....Go get that military discount you served our country you deserve it!!Good Luck

I currently an 03 Kia Sorento and an older Lexus RX. I have been told by the dealer that I can only take one offer, either the Loyalty or Competitive bonus, in addition to the bonus cash.
By the way, the best quote that I got for a 2013 Kia Sorento EX AWD V6 with Premium Package is $28.5K after rebates.
