I'll try Costco again tomorrow, your deal sounds to good to pass up, if they offer me the same I might pull the trigger. I received another offer this morning EX V6 fwd Premium pack & Limited pack, $28,273 good until 12-17-12. If their offering this now after xmas I should get them to throw in the cross rails & trailer hitch for under & 28,000. The 5 seaters are in very limited supply/colors in so-cal, dealer said most are in midwest?

Wow those are some great deals people are getting. Everyone knows month end push creates lower prices, I'll bet year end crunch is even more important to dealers.. Add in the soon to be released 2014 models and we have the perfect storm
I looked around the lot of a large dealer in my area and reallly liked almost every model I saw, even base LX models. You really get a lot for your money with the Sorento. I'm starting to get the itch but will be patient.

I've sent out quote requests to a few dealers in my area and have not gotten many good responses. Is it because it is still early in the month? I'm wondering if it is my wording of the request. How is everyone wording their requests? TIA

grefor whats your zip code & what are you looking for? I'm meeting with a costco certified sales rep this morning to see what kind of deal I can pull off with him. Last might he gave me a quote over the phone but it was still over $1,000 dollars higher than my certified quote from truecar. The truecar rep said the extra fee's are max of $80 for documentation + tax & license. I now know what to write the check for. I realize when I get there and the pressure for an up sale will start, but if I owned the dealership I would expect nothing less than my employes extracting every penny they could without pissing off my customers.
I'm still trying to narrow down exactly what I want color/packages ect. planning to make my finial selection today then it's time to play "Let's Make a Deal." I'll have all my info/quotes in front of me and see what I can get.
Talk to the fleet dealer not the schmuck selling cars on the lot, chances are the lot salesman has no idea about you options. I'll let you know how my costco experience works out. The fleet dealer told me that he can check his computer to see what cars are on the assembly line & headed to his lot so this will bge an excelent tool for getting exactuly what I want.

"The fleet dealer told me that he can check his computer to see what cars are on the assembly line ..."
FWIW, two dealers have told me the 2013 Sorento assembly lines have been shut down. Kia USA has announced the 2014 Sorentos will be introduced in February. One dealer told me there are still some 2013 Sorentos "in the pipeline" that haven't arrived at dealers yet.
Best of luck with your negitions; keep us posted on how it goes.

Get him to show you the Dealer Invoice...they are required to show you that per the costco program...they should then start at 350-500 below dealer invoice. Costco agreement has very specific rules. Also if the color and interior is not one of the cars coming to his lot they can have one rerouted. My wife wanted a specific color combination . Had to wait a month but dealer found one destined for another dealer. Good luck let us know how you make out.

What a day! 2 Costco dealers and one 1 truecar dealer. First off Truecar, I talked to the sales manager and the $1000 savings was... you guessed it wrong, I only qualified for an additional $500 but that expired 12-17-12 so now Costco and Truecar price are the same to the penny. The 2 Costco dealers were about $55 different. Best price $26,970 EX V6 Premium package plus Calif state fees. Yesterday the costco dealer told me there was 2 en-route but this afternoon no mas anywhere!
The price includes everything destination fees, dealer fees except what the cockroaches incharge of this state milk you for when buying a new car. Even buying from a dealer 10 miles apart can run you an extra $300 in city taxes.
So I'm going with Costco they give you a $200 gift card for filling out a review of your experience, 15% of all Auto parts & services including any car you own and a deal on auto insurance.
I've thrown out my name and # to 4 dealers of interest so now I'll wait until next week and see if I get a call back with an "Offer I Can't Refuse"
Someone said they got a EX V6 AWD for $28300? did that include dealer fees?

One more item I did get the invoice and it was $660 off plus $2750 worth of incentives for a total of $5,180 off MSRP EX V6 Premium Package.
THANKS VERY MUCH for the Costco heads up, I went to their website first but didn't want to deal with talking with a salesman until I received a price first.

Yes I got my EX V6 AWD with premium package for 28,300 plus taxes and tags about 210.00.....Also got a 330.00 Service credit from dealer because couldnt go any lower on price due to Costco rules..Used that to buy side steps at dealer cost of 350.00
