2013 and Earlier - Hyundai Sonata Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • jbramsjbrams Posts: 5
    Yes, it was a 2012. Beat the truecar offers throughout California for a pop pack 2 GLS from 2011. Happy with the price, at least for my region.
  • Hello. I'm looking to benchmark a price that I just received for a 2011 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L Limited with the following options: all weather mats, cargo mat, cargo net, ipod cable. I'm not going for the navigation package. Car has all of the elements of the Limited Pkg - leather, heated seats, etc.

    For these features, I have a price of $25k prior to taxes & tags. Can someone tell me if they think this is a good price for Doylestown/Bucks County, PA. Also, what are the going "fees" for this transaction? I'm not interested in paying dealer fees so they can make up their profit. It's been a while since I last purchased a car.

    No trade - cash deal.

    From Route 44 Hyundai in Raynham.

    They were the least expensive from the start. I dealt with the internet sales manager and he was very straightforward with his pricing and availability.

    $500 below invoice and $348 Doc Fee. Had some extra goodies like floor mat, cargo net, etc..

    I have a Limited with 4500 miles and I and several friends have no problem with road noise. My car has Hankook tires on it so maybe its the Kumho causing you problem.

    Seems high We bought a Limited with NAV for $24,800 . Truecar price was 25,100 when we purchased just over 3 weeks ago, I just checked today and the price went up $1000. Must not be getting Incentives. The MSRP was 28,800. Did you check the true car price. Also I purchased the car in New Jersey..Good luck

    Too High in my opinion. Just checking Truecar for the pittsburgh area and that looks to be about $800 more than a dealer in the area is willing to sell for.
  • Thanks for the info. I think I will try NJ. Which dealership did you work with?
  • I am trying to decide between the 2012 SE w/Nav+Sunroof vs. 2011 SE 2.0T with Nav+Sunroof. The price I'm getting is a few hundred dollars cheaper on the 2012 SE.

    I'm leaning towards the 2012 for the following reasons:
    - No stigma of first year of new design
    - I don't need Turbo as I'm less likely to get speeding ticket with heavy foot on pedal
    - Nav screen is a little better & brighter
    - BlueLink + Rear Camera

    Any thoughts??

    Austin, Texas. Silver SE 2.0T, with mud flaps (like we need 'em -- it hasn't rained in nine months) and floor mats.

    Paid $24,495 before TT&L with a $180 doc fee. That, according to my calculations, was invoice... on a 2012 SE 2.0T.

    I went to a dealer and told him complete truth, I was offered a mid trim level Mazda 6 for $19,500 and 0% financing same for mid level Fusion (but dealer did say that financing will be around 3%) both from Manhattan Auto Group.

    That’s where I came up with $19,500, plus I was asking for a 2011, a week or two before 2012s came out. Mazda and Ford are in one dealership, the guy still calls me and wants to make a deal on a 6 or a Fusion.

    If you reply was aimed at me, i simply went to a Ford/Mazda guy and told him i am very interested in buying, test drove both and told him to give me his offer but i'd have to see Sonata first. He made his offer, i went to Plaza Hyundai in Brooklyn and told the dealer absolute truth and i asked him to match it. Sonata sells well so there's no 0% financing and my credit is pretty good, but he said that is their interest rate. Also their fees were $300, which are high. I told him to give me an OTD on Base with auto tranny and on Base with Auto tranny and that convenience package. He went to his boss and gave me 21K or 21k+$750.

    At Plaza sales guy was Kyrie and at Manhattan William something.
  • So, for 2012 Sonatas, did the passenger seat get raised and did the seat fabric get an upgrade so it wears better? Or does it make more sense to buy the 2011 GLS with Pop pkg than the 2012 if there weren't any changes?

    To JKleemeier:
    My mother and I were searching for a decent 4 or 6 cylinder sedan with leather seating, electronics (ie power windows/locks, sunroof, climate control, power adjustable seat), abs, esc, traction control, and push-button ignition to name a few, etc., without compromising on gas mileage. Nissan Altima 2.5s, with similar package, was starting at $26,610, with aforementioned features (or very close), while Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.4L was priced at $26,345. Hyundai was discounted down to $25,645 (Global Automall US 22 in Green Brook, NJ), car had alloy rims and wheel locks pre-installed. Terrific pick-up w/ acceleration. Nissan did not discount Altima for similar package, yet a couple days after we placed a deposit on the Sonata, Nissan salesman claims he's willing to take up to $3,000 off sticker price for similar package (Somerset Nissan US 22 Somerville, NJ). Kicker with this dealership is free oil changes and loaner cars for life of ownership, yet car MUST be bought at that dealership and serviced there only. Anyway, with the Hyundai, we countered their sticker price with $22,500. Dealer said no, we countered again with $24,000, which they did. Silver Sonata with gray leather interior and aforementioned features, with all sales taxes and throw-in fees, total was slightly over $26,200. Very good package deal, only feature we did not choose was navigation and back-up camera/sensors (which honestly are unnecessary, if you cannot drive without those reliably on your own, you shouldn't be driving the car in my own opinion). This was a 2011, last one they had in stock, 2012s' were all they had beyond this one btw.

    I apologize for the length of the review, hopefully it is helpful to you!

    Planning to pick this up tomorrow. Sticker is 21570. The price they offered is below invoice for 2012 gls. Please advise if that's a good price. I was hoping to get 2011 though and some dealers who have the are quoting more than what he's selling me a 2012 for.
