2013 and Earlier - Hyundai Sonata Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • I meant tax plus fees are $2,500 where the most part of it is use tax - 8.xx% of the purchase price in CA. The fees seemed to be reasonably charged - I was very careful not to be ripped off. ^.^
  • to jacob kim:

    i understand now. i live in massachusetts and we call it a sales tax which is 6.25% here on the purchase price. no matter what it is called it is a tax.
    good luck with the sonata. i have had two azeras one a 2006 and the current one is a 2011-no problems whatsoever. wife has an 2010 accent with no problems.

    What would be a good price for CPO 2011 Sonata GLS Auto Gray/Gray with 35000 miles. Also 2011 CPO Blue/Beige with 19000 miles(6 speed manual). This is in the SFO Bay area. Base models. Thinking of getting one on the 2nd of JAN 14

    Thanks for the help!!

    You might try asking that question in the Real World Trade-In Values discussion, here:

    I realize that you are buying, not trading in, but someone can give you a good idea of the value.

    I tried to close a deal tonight (1/4/14) on a 2013 Sonata GLS, PEP, Sparkling Ruby paint, with the floor mats, fancy mirror, cargo net, and dealer installed window tint ($394). Numbers looked like this:

    MSRP $23100

    Invoice: $22,357

    Truecar price: $20707 (before TTL, doc)

    Discounts: -1500 rebate, plus $1650 from the dealer

    Final Cost before TTL, Doc: $19207

    OTD Cost: $21,600

    This car has been sitting on the lot 6+ months, had a dead battery when we asked for a test drive, and they still wouldn't budge off this $21,600 figure, which was their first pitch to me. I asked for $19,500 and we just stalemated. This is a really useful forum, really helped me to know this deal was ok, but not a great deal and to walk away.

    One last interesting thing, before I even saw an invoice, they wanted me to fill out a credit application. I told them I was already pre-approved at my bank, and they said they probably can't beat the credit unions APR... stupid me, I still filled it out when asked. In hindsight, that was a mistake, I should have insisted on getting an invoice first and working the price of the car before divulging anything about my personal finances. Live and learn.

    Has anyone seen the 2015 Sonata. Seen some spy shots cant get a real clear look at the lines from the back. The newer remodel is not as sloped. I think that alone is a improvement in the looks dept..

    2013 Genesis 5.0 R-spec, 2013 Accord EXL V-6, 2012 BMW x-5, 2012 ML350

    Is $19,000 + TTL good for a 2013 GLS with PEP? Can I do better?
