That's 20 bucks over invoice....since it has just come out and there is not much discounting, you made a good deal!

Good to know how they do things. I think they did something similar with the Forte SX koup. They're cashing in on the buzz. That will wane. When the camry redesign rolls out prices may really come down. We'll see.

i agree with you about the forte sx koup.i purchased a blue 2010 forte koup sx last march and only got 300.00 off of the msrp.however,i do enjoy all the comments i get about the car and all the looks and stares at the car everywhere i go.you can't put a price on that.

Definitly a nice car and you can't beat the price. Hope you're enjoying the heck out of it. I would have gotten one if I was younger and not so used to the soft ride of my 01 camry. The blue SX was my favorite as well. It's what got me back into a KIA dealership and interested again. I never thought I'd even consider KIA. Now I think KIA is moving in the right direction and most every other car maker is going the wrong way.

#19 of 20 Invoice Price is not really the Invoice Price

Car manufacturers print an invoice price that is not really what the dealer pays - check with Consumer Reports. For $12 US you can find out the true price, or even the price of that exact car. The dealer gets rebates based on volume and other similar hidden incentives. Often a dealer can realistically sell for several hundred below invoice and still be making a comfortable profit. In some cases, the dealer will actually sell close to his true price if he anticipates that he will make money on service from you, or if he can fudge the figures around legally with respect to a trade-in. And watch out for last second add-ons. I am not 100% sure but I have heard that even the freight figure is bogus. A few years back I bought a car in Illinois and took delivery in Florida - the freight from Illinois to Florida was not very much compared to the freight charges on those invoices. Best of luck
