Anyone know the November money factor and residual for a '11 LX AWD for 36 months and 15k miles?

This forum has been pretty dead recently, but does anyone have any recent experience in purchasing a 2011 Sportage LX AWD. I'm looking for pricing information on said model with convenience package in the CT area. Thanks!

Local dealership is claiming on the radio to offer a 5K incentive towards the purchase of a new Kia, with ANY trade-in.
Has anyone else heard of a similar deal in their area? I've emailed for more data, but this incentive is enough to drive me (no pun intended) towards a new Sportage EX that I might not have gotten otherwise. 20-22K is a lot more affordable than 28K.

May I ask where is this deal and which dealer? Sounds really good.
#18 of 41 Purchasing a new Kia Sportage - Trade or Sell the trade?
Aug 05, 2011 (8:24 am)
I currently own a vehicle which CarMax has offered $28000 to purchase it from me. I am planning on purchasing a Kia Sport and took the vehicle for a trade-in appraisal, which turned out to be $27,300. In Ohio, if you trade a car, then the value of the trade is deducted from the amount to which sales tax is applied. In this case, by trading, I would escape around $1850.
It has always been said that it is preferable to do an"all cash deal v. a trade. On the face of it (without consideration of the sales tax), the trade-in approach is $700 inferior to selling my trade to CarMax. However, is sales tax six considered, then the advantage "appears" to be $1150 in the direction of the trade.
After reading many posts in this forum and the thread regarding leases, I am seeing individuals with purchase amounts that are $2000-$4000 below MSRP (with no trade). That being the case, then it appears as if the appropriate way to proceed is biased toward not trading and instead negotiating an all cash deal.
I am wondering what the more experienced members on this board think of this. Which way would you proceed. Also, I cam considering the potential of purchasing a 2011 model rather than a 2012 if I can expect a deal on an '11 to be a 10% or greater reduction in price v. a '12. I appreciate some general guidance on this as well.

I had a deal working on a fairly well loaded 2012 Ford Edge SEL FWD leather, which, after all numbers were crunched, was going to be $512/month for 60 months. This included 2k in rebates.
The vehicle seemed too big to me, the gas mileage wasn't the greatest, so I checked on a 2012 Kia Sportage EX FWD, loaded, with leather, NAV, sunroofs, 18", backup camera, etc..
After the numbers were crunched, it's $425/month for 60 months. There was a $500 competitive car rebate (for my Rogue trade-in). Of course I quickly signed on the dotted line, like a maroon.
Now, after reviewing the data more closely, I realize they're only giving me $11,100 for my 2008 Nissan Rogue SL (54k miles loaded with leather). The Ford dealer was offering me $16,000, plus he was discounting the Edge about 4k (*plus* 2k in rebates).
Here's how the Kia sales manager rope-a-doped me: "They can't move Ford Edge's; Kia's are much more popular; I can't keep these on the lot. I can go to Dallas right now and buy Rogues all day long for 16k...blah, blah, blah."
Here's my questions:
1. Did I make a terrible deal?
2. Can I get out of the deal, even though I signed the paperwork?
2.b. What if I offer them cash? Should I offer them cash? How much cash?
3. Just how bad a deal does this sound like?
Just call me "cold...feet."

Have you taken delivery?
Have you given them your trade?
Have you given them any money?
If the answer to all of these questions is NO, then just call them and tell them you changed your mind...
