#1024 of 7872 considering a sonata GL or GLS
Jun 22, 2005 (4:00 am)
Been to my local hyundai dealer several times. Finally test drove the 4 cyl. Not bad and all the safety features. Rejected the '04 sonata to get a '04 accord exl. Considering a boring camry now cause hyundai doesn't offer rebates nor low rates to finance. I'm not paying anything over invoice for a hyundai and can get a camry at below invoice and 2.9% for 48 months. Not concerned by the first 100K where warranty covers. My two 1994 camrys didn't have some issues until 150K. The dealer said the don't have any incentives to buy now cause sales are strong (the same 6 cars have been on the lot since May). I checked another dealer 25 miles away and they have about 20 cars. Most are all tan (14 of the GL's) and a few LX's in gray and black. Geez, hyundai, you'd think they'd offer white or more colors but the dealer says it's in pre-production. Also, it's classified as a "full" size car. Then put a full spare in the damn trunk instead of a donut that you can only go 50MPH on. I guess I'll wait for more colors and rebates/low rates in 3-6 months. I really don't need to buy now anyway. I'm willing to take a gamble on it if they come down on price and rates. When I checked my insurance carrier, they said the 2004 sonata was higher due to it's harder to get parts. And what's with that under-carriage protector. Every time you want to access something underneath, you have to take it off. I only took the GL out for 2 miles or so and it was okay but I needed to take it longer w/o a salesman in the back seat. I didn't like the parking brake. It was way too large and sticking up. The car was louder than an accord on acceleration and shifted rougher than the accord.

Here is the break out
2006 LX V6 with optional package #3 including sun roof and radio/cd/mp3/sub woofer package and destination charge = $22,840.
Advertising fee of $500 was negotiated this off the bill and not included in the amount above.
Like the car so far.

we really need someone to make a dash piece in order to put in our own navigation system . if you notice on the US model, if you take out the cd player to put in a navi, there is still going to be a lot of open space as it is curved up larger than the normal double din on the overseas model... it's not like that
i never did get any definite answers from hyundai as to when to expect the navis to be available on any model... so not sure how long I can wait
