$16k seems to be right on target with your configuration ($3900 below invoice). Basically they charged you and Kia $100 above invoice.

Ooooooooooooh....I'm so excited! I just picked it up! Rides like a dream. Really quiet and lots o'pep! The salesman and I had a comedy routine with the interior dome lights (getting them to fade off..) and getting the headlights to shutoff automatically when the key was removed...but other than that it was a good experience. I WAS a hard bargainer -- I had 3 dealerships competing against each other and when one dropped a price -- I pitched it to the other 2. When I walked in to pickup the car, they gave me a standing ovation.
Howz the window tint applied? Thinking about doing that -- I noticed the moonroof was tinted...Did you get it done at KIA or outside place?

My dealer does not do it (not even contract others to do that) but recommend a shop nearby. I shopped around town and got 3 quotes ranged from $149 to $200 to tint the rear doors and behind (front doors are not allowed to be tinted in my area). Finally I picked one BBB accredited auto windows specialist that quoted me $160 with lifetime warranty on film and labor (paid $169 OTD). Check your local state restriction on windows tinting. I choose 20% light transmission for the same level as most factory tinted SUV, while some states only allow down to 35%.

I think you got a Great Deal. Enjoy the new ride. I picked up my 2008 EX V6 with 3'rd row, No Premium for 14390 +TT&T about a month ago. I have been enjoying it since the drive drive. Anyway, my buddy that told me about the dealer outside of P'burgh that had a lot of 2008's decide to wait on a new vehicle.

A reporter is looking to see if you were looking to purchase a Toyota or Honda vehicle but after doing some comparison shopping, purchase a Hyundai or Kia because of price/value . Please send your daytime phone number to ctalatiedmunds.com by Friday, October 9, 2009.
