Yeah, maybe the new competition from the HAH is a factor. Maybe the under-$3 a gallon gas is a factor also. I've seen pretty big discounts on Priuses recently too... I never used to see that when gas was $4 a gallon.
But remember... it's only a darn good deal if you really want the car!

Well what car are they selling that has an MSRP of $26,445? If it's the GLS next to that price, then they must have added $4,000 in worthless dealer accesories so they can take $7,750 off. Even their footnote gives a disclaimer regarding their MSRP.

I didn't really look at how the numbers were arrived at, but thanks for reading the fine print. I just looked at the Screamer part of the ad.

I live in the nw burbs and don't get all the ads. I never see McGrath downtown ads. Also, a lot of southside and south suburb dealers advertise only in the Sun-Times. I get the Trib so I was only referencing the ads in my Chicago Tribune. I should have specified I guess.
The ad I was referring to is this one.
And I have to correct myself as I said there was $4000 off a Sonata GLS in the same ad and there was not. It must have been another dealer where I saw the $4000 off a Sonata.
Edit: The ad that I linked to says $6500 off the Hybrid but I just checked my paper and it says $7500 plain as day. If you go to their website and click on the special banners at the top of the page it say $7500 of the Sonata Hybrids as well.
Anyway, a good deal for somebody that need one.

I just typed in Chicago and Hyundai and picked the irish name.
Will be freezing my butt off at the Pinstripe Bowl in a coupe of weeks.
One of my kids wants to be able to post pics from the game.

At least you'll be warmer than if you went to the Super Bowl

Last year, I survived my Christmas present from the kids.
Outdoor ice hockey game at Soldier Field in January. Brrr.

I bought the Fusion at the end of last February, so I have never driven it cold weather very much.
Also, I've been working a bit later, so I'm heading home at peak traffic times.
The fuel mileage has suffered, but the heat works well and the car is easy to drive in stop and go traffic.
My old Explorer is pretty abrupt off and on the throttle, so not too enjoyable to drive in stop and go.

I've been enjoying my new accord in the cold. Parking in an insulated garage at home helps in the morning, but it also heats up right quick in the evening headed home. I only drove it once in the Great Dallas Iceapalooza. OEM tires were obviously not meant for winter (which I assume is over now...) but it wasn't as scary as I expected. Put the manual in second, feet off the pedals, and it pulled like a little tractor.
