  • Hello Scott - Dealers here in PA are advertising LX's with no extras for 18,974 for after all rebates/incentives. So maybe start there, plus cost for your leather? I took in the Edmunds invoice pricing, and my dealer was cool with that, just had a "marketing allowance" of a little over $400 that checked out to be legitimate. Even if it wasn't, I am not against them making a few bucks, just not taking me for a ride. Lastly, don't get too caught up in getting the "absolute best deal". I got the best deal I could get at the time, and a month later, the rebates were better. Good luck!
  • Hello all,

    We just test drove a brand new 06 LX at our local dealer.It was a nice shade of blue(I think Glacier blue is the name),and it really surprised us.We loved how the car ran,and the price seems good for what you get for features,and safety equipment.

    The salesperson quoted us $20500 for the car,and taold us they could take our Subaru Forester that we are leasing,and have 9 months left on as a trade-in,and they will give us enough to payoff the remainder of the payments,and the residual.

    The salesperson claims the price they quoted is $700 under invoice plus the $2000 rebate Kia is offering.How does this deal sound?I know Kia Country is selling at $18300 on ebay,but we live in MA,and the possible savings may not be worth the long trip,plus I am a bit skeptical about the deal they are offering on ebay.

    How will the Kia compare to our Subaru which has been nothing short of flawless for the 27 months we have owned it?How is Kia for standing behind the car,and thier warranty?

    We are confused as to what to buy,as we ave options of really good deals on Chryslers due to my employee incentive program,and there seems to be a lot of used certified pre owned Hondas around here in our price range.Thanks in advance.

    I was sold on Kia, until I stumbled on their current financing deals, which end tomorrow.

    Toyota is currentlyt offering 0.0% financing for 60 monhts on 2006 Sienna's. What does this mean, well it means that if you geta Sienna CE OTD for $24K with worth $20,690 today, once you consider the "free money" versus 6% financing.

    Sue, the LX has a couple features teh CE doesn't, so what I will tell you is spend a little more and upgrade to a LE Sienna - you will still spend less and get a better car because of the financing. Do the math, get a Sienna, get the financing, and make out like a BANDIT!!!!
  • We recently picked up a new 06 Sedona.
    MSRP: 24,025

    We got the deal for 17,000 no other fees, doc fees, processing fees etc. With trade-in(got within 100 bucks of kbb trade-in value) and some cash down we floated the remainder of about 10k for 5.8% 60 months.

    I feel pretty good about this deal, I had three salesmen made at me so thats probably a good sign.
  • Wow $17,000 seems like a really good deal. How did they arrive at that number? What was the rebate and dealer discount?

    The best I seen for January in my area is around $18,900 that includes $4000 rebate and $1035 in dealer discount.
  • Looks like there are lots of LX's out there now. Gateway Kia in Quakertown, PA has an ad in today's (1/6) paper for 14,907. No mention that it is a demo, of cash or trade needed, or of "must finance through dealer" in the disclaimer, just all rebates and incentives to dealer. Probably a catch, but still indicative of great deals out there now.

    Here's the ad itself. Looks like a great deal. Dealers in my area are at about $17,500.

  • I thought I was getting a good deal when my local dealer verbally accepted an offer $7000 off a new EX ($4K rebate, $3K discount), but with the Quakertown Kia deal above, I'm wondering if I left money on the table. $14900 is a steal!!!
  • I actually called the Quakertown dealer. The Sedona for $14,900 is a program car. I did not ask him how many miles.

    Nationwide Kia in Baltimore has an ad that I'm skeptical about. They have a $24.035 MSRP Sedona that they raised to 28,189 cause of so called dealer addons. Now they are offering $4000 rebate, a $6000 Nationwide Discount and a $6000 guarantee trade in which brings it down to about $12,200. Anyone ever seem something like this?
  • I've been trying to figure out how dealers could discount the new Sedona's so much, so I decided to itemize everything based on the conversations I've had with the Sales Manager at one dealership to show what the lowest possible price one could get with the dealership not loosing money on the deal (just breaking even).

    This should provide you the ability to better negotiate a deal on a remaining 2006 model. It helped my get my base EX for $7405 off MSRP. Here goes...

    typer_801,
    Thanks for the info on the extra $1k incentive and the $750 spiff. I had gotten quotes more than $5k below invoice, and that helps explain it.
  • Great research. Maybe you can start your own site. Anyone else wondering "Where the hell is Edmunds" on this stuff"?

    Looks like I could have scored an EX for just pennies more (if not the same) than the LX price I paid. Next time, I'll know to dig a little deeper. I have always said in this thread that I don't mind if the dealer makes a profit as long as I don't leave a lot of money on the table. It appears I missed my mark...
  • I am in KC. I am slated to buy a base model LX, with no other options for $17000 tomorrow. No futher fees, at least from dealer.

    I went into the process thnking that 18k would be a decent deal. I got cold feet when I learned that the Sedona I wanted was made in 2/06, so some of the fixes (see the TSB on KIA websites) may still need to be done. I usually hate buying a vehicle the first year out.

    But the dealer seemed to want to deal, and he dropped his price to $17,000 quite readily.

    I think the deals you hear of for $15,000 or less are likely to have a whole lot of strings attached......

    I wish I knew if the 06 Sedona is going to be reliable over time. I don't care a wit about resale, as I will drive it for 8-10 years. But I hope I don't need to use the warranty too often....

    That's about the range I've seen. As per Typer, dealer cost is around 16,2 or 16,3. The ones I've seen have 05/06 build dates. Still have to deal with some TSBs.
  • Typer,

    What area of the country are you in and what dealership did you use? Thanks
  • Cincinnati, OH -- I finally bought my Sedona from Kings Kia. Although I had the same offer from Wyler Kia in Fairfield on the exact model I wanted, they just couldn't get it aligned, so I went to Kings. That ended up being a good thing, Kings Kia is a much nicer dealership. It's worth noting, the guys at Wyler Kia in Springfield were offering $8K off anything they had in stock, but I was stuck with their selection (no dealer trades) and I couldn't deal with black. FWIW - I went on the at Kings Kia website last night and they are now offering about what I paid for mine as their "internet price". Sounds like the deals are getting better as the month end approaches.
  • I just got an internet offer from Car Pros Kia in Pomona, CA on a 2006 Sedona EX with the power package and premium entertainment package for an out the door price of $24,000. This includes the $4000 rebate and additional incentives (which I'm not sure what's included).

    I've also been offered $24,600 out the door on a 2006 Sedona EX with the Power and Luxury Package.

    These prices almost matches what typer_801 has outlined for the EX model.

    If these are good prices I'm leaning toward the $24,000 from Car Pros just because I want the DVD system. However, is it worth getting the $24,600 luxury package and then adding a DVD add-on (Costco has a DVD add-on for $700 with 10.2" screen which includes installation)?

    Thanks.

    Could you tell me what you ended up paying. I am also in the Cincy market and went to Kings and Fairfield and so far the best they will do is $7k off of sticker. Were you able to do any better?

    thanks
    Brian
  • I ended up getting my Sedona for the $19,090 price before TTL. That was on an EX with an MSRP of $26,495. Total discount $7405 (as shown above).

    Email me privately for more info (typer_801 at yahoo dot com)
  • Just wanted to thank everyone here for all the info. I'm going to do battle with a dealer in the PHX area sometime during the next few days and this info combined with all the stuff at www.carbuyingtips.com makes me feel much better prepared.

    If anyone cares to share why they preferred the EX over the LX, I'd appreciate it. Unless you want the upgrade packages, is there really a reason to go there?

    Thx again,
    SJ
