#32 of 176 Re: 2007 Entrourage SE/Premium Entertaintment Package [jorjen]

Me too- I bought a Limited Entourage from Wright Hyundai in Wexford on Aug. 31. The MSRP was about $31K I think. I came well armed with all my invoice, rebate, and finance info, and they said basically they would give me $400 over invoice because I was a Costco member. I ended up getting a better deal than that because they had a floor model that they took $3K off the MSRP and they matched that deal on another model which I bought. It's a base Limited with just the floor mats added as the only "option." And I took the $500 rebate too over the special financing. Ended up getting 6.1%/60 mo. through the dealer.
#33 of 176 CarsDirect Price for SE with PE
Sep 09, 2006 (6:25 pm)
Hi, it's my first time here, and also my first time buying a car! and I had a question for you all.
I live near Poughkeepsie, NY, and am looking into minivans (Entourage probably, possibly an Odyssey...). My nearest Hyundai dealership is about 30 minutes a way, unfortunately... and the Honda dealerships are also pretty spotty here... (so getting dealers to compete over my business seems like it might be hard...).
On CarsDirect, I can get the SE with PE for $27615, and $28115 with the 0% for 3 year deal (well more than $500 savings on interest...). (Unfortunately, this car is in NJ...).
I'm just wondering whether this is a good deal or not. I could drive to near NYC to a costco affiliated hyundai place, but I don't think I'd get a better price than this anyways.
So, my two questions are:
1. Is that a decent price?
2. Odyssey, Sienna, or Entourage? I like the Entourage warranty and price (and it does drive well). I can get the DVD entertainment system without breaking the bank (not so with Honda or Toyota...). Why did most of you choose Entourage?

1) The price sounds pretty good to me. I just paid $28402 for an SE with PE and CF floor mats ($137). That worked out as follows:
$27902 Invoice Price (including $700 destination charge)
+ $500 Advertising Fee (non-negotiable)
- $500 Rebate
+ $500 Dealer markup
According to Edmunds TMV, the typical customer has been paying $28398. I probably could have held out for a bit lower, since the salesman accepted my offer a little too quickly.
Anyway, that sounds like a pretty good price.
2) Why Hyundai? My finalists were the Kia Sedona, Hyundai Entourage, Toyota Sienna, and , in that order. I also looked at the Dodge Caravan, Mercury Monterey, Saturn Relay, and Nissan Quest.
Why Hyundai over the Kia, since they are both basically the same vehicle?
a) I have bought 4 other cars from the Hyundai salesman and find him a pleasure to deal with. I didn't get a very good vibe from the Kia salesman.
b) Hyundai allowed me to get the Infinity premium sound system without having to get $5000 worth of other features I didn't want.
Why Hyundai over Toyota? Hyundai/Kia looks like they shamelessly copied the best features from the Odyssey and Sienna, but improved on them a tiny bit. Little things like adjusting the seats, folding down tray tables, and removing the middle seats were all smoother and easier on the Korean models. Toyota has the reputation for outstanding fit and finish and quality, but those operations were rougher and clunkier on the Sienna.
I just have to keep my fingers crossed that the attention to detail on the interior features carries over into the important areas like the engine and transmission.
Why not Honda? Our local dealer doesn't have a real good reputation. Also, I think the Odyssey is a bit over-priced.

#36 of 176 Closed a deal on a Limited
Sep 16, 2006 (6:45 pm)
Today we purchased a Limited with sunroof and floor mats for $27,832.00.
Vehicle price $28,832.00 - $1,000.00 for competitive discount (Indiana). Also got 3.9% for 60 months.
Think we got a pretty good deal

I understand Entourage comes with 5 yr / 50K bumper to bumper warranty. There is an upgrade package for 10 yr/100k miles coverage as well. Do we need to buy it when buying vehicle or can we buy it later? Does anyone know what price are they being offered for?

We leased our Entourage for 3 years / 36k miles so the extended waranty beyond the 5 years probably won't matter if we re-lease in 3 years. At the end of the 3 years we have the option to buy it so I inquired about your extended waranty question.
We were told that we had up to 1 year and 10k (I think) miles to come back and purchase the extended waranty. They gave us an astronomical IMHO price of $1000 so we didn't discuss it further. I know that you can also shop the waranty around between dealers for the best price.

"b) Hyundai allowed me to get the Infinity premium sound system without having to get $5000 worth of other features I didn't want."
I recommended to my parents to get the Kia because of the outstanding incentives.
They just bought a Sedona EX with Luxury/Leather package (my mother is short, so the power pedals and memory are very nice to have) and Power package, but without the Premium Entertainment (which doesn't matter to them) for $23,200 after the dealer discount (no mark up and no advertising fee) and a $1500 rebate and a $2000 Competitive Bonus (because they already owned a qualifying minivan).
If not for those advantages I probably would have recommended the Hyundai, because it is kind of the Mercury version of Kia.
#41 of 176 Kia Sedona vs Hyundai Entourage
Nov 06, 2006 (8:08 am)
For those considering a Hyundai Entourage, be sure to take a good look at the Kia Sedona. I've seen some of the gibberish about the Entourage being built to higher QC standards than Sedona, but these 2 are essentially the same vehicle out of the same plant. Right now the Sedona is much better deal.
I just bought a 2006 Sedona LX (delivered to my door!) for $17,550 before tax, title and license. The Sedona LX has a $3000 rebate and I also qualified for $1000 competitive rebate since I own a Chrysler Town and Country. Couldn't get any dealer below $20K on an Entourage.
