2013 and Earlier - Hyundai Sonata Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    I went to a Hyundai dealer in Salt Lake City, Utah and was offered the 2013 Hyundai Sonata Limited, Sparkling Ruby exterior with Camel (Beige) interior, with Tech Package (navigation, panoramic sunroof, backup camera, upgraded stereo) for the following:

    MSRP: $29,850

    Selling Price: 25,850
    Cash back: -500
    Tax: 1756.96
    Document Fee: $299
    Registration: $244
    Total: $27,649.96

    What do you guys (and gals) think? Should I aim to get the total price lower? And the above is only if I finance with the dealer at a couple points above market rate for 6 months, thereby paying about $322 in interest each month for the first 6 months, or just over $1900 in interest for the first 6 months. They said if I paid in cash that the price of the car would be $1,200 higher.

        $250.00    Adv Fee
       -$500.00    Trade In

     -$1,000.00     Rebate with 0% financing for 3 yrs

    $21,000.00      Out the Door

    Super deal. I paid $400 more but I have white which is an add'l $200. But, my doc & registration fees were about $200 less so it looks like we walked out the door with the exact same price. Awesome. Enjoy!!!
  • This is my first time posting and also will possibly be my first Hyundai purchase of the 2013 Sonata SE 2.0T - Non-NAV/Sunroof.

    I received an offer of $23,250 "Out the Door" broken down as:

    $21,095 Initial Quote with Rebates
    + $775 Freight
    + $389 Processing Fee
    + $631.77 Tax (3% in VA)
    + $50/60 Registration/Title/Emissions
    + $1,400 (I didn't qualify for Rebates: College, Military, Hyundai Owner)
    - $500 72 mos finance rebate Hyundai Motor Finance
    - $600 Dealer Holdback
    $23,250 "Out the Door" - Includes Floor Mats, Cargo Mat, Mud Guards, & Remote Start

    Their dealer includes a program, Lifetime Engine Guarantee, Lifetime VA State Inspections, Lifetime car washes, 1 yr warranty on Interior and Exterior, Discounts on service, wheel locks, nitrogen in tires, and pinstripe(which I don't know why I'd need)

    Is this a good deal?

    Something must be out of whack on your low quote.
    I have searched the 'net and this is the best deal I can come up with.....(and this is not an "out the door" price.

    2013 Hyundai Sonata 2.0L Turbo 4-Cyl Automatic SE MSRP: $28,955.00 Savings off MSRP: $665.00
    Internet Special: $28,290.00
    this is in Texas.

    If I were you I would grab the deal.
  • Yikes, that's pretty crazy, it sounds like a SE Turbo with Navigation the price you're seeing, but even so forums show about $27-29k out the door. My offer was without Navigation. MSRP should only be around $25k, somebody is price gouging or charging a ridiculous up charge.

    I first started with researching different forums to get an idea of what people were paying and around $23.5k was average, then got quotes from dealers in the area - 70 miles, told everyone the lowest quote then went from there. Double checked using True Car and this was all through email back and forth. I finally emailed back a dealer who said the initial quote of $21k was a great number and she couldn't do it, rationalized what I thought it should be out the door and she soon found she could do it.

    I don't see how a car could cost more in Texas other than limited quantity and because Texas is so big, depending on where you live dealerships are probably few and far between. If you wanted the car try True Car, join a group that offers Hyundai Circle Plan A pricing(employee's family/friend pricing), and then quote, play against and rationalize.

    You think that's high?

    I just Googled 2013 hyundai Sonata Turbo SE and found that 'with navi' a dealer in Washington state wanted over $33,000!

    That's an OMG if I ever saw one!

    That 's Killer Deal..Can you post the dealer details ...plz..
  • I'm picking it up tonight financing through HMF 72 mos. with Pohanka Hyundai in Fredericksburg, VA.

    I actually got them to drop another $250.00 to make it $23k OTD.

    And my mistake, there is no remote start only with blue link. But in any case I'm pretty sure that's still a good deal.
  • Hey all I need some advice.
    I havent had to buy a car in forever...

    My ideal car is the 2.4L Hyundai Sonata Limited w/ Nav Package
    Black / Wine Interior.

    Nyc dealers seem to start them at 31 / 32000 when running the numbers
    and making it out to be 512 x 60mo or 467 x 72 mo with a 4/5K down payment.
    My Ideal payments are 300-450 / 3-5 yrs
    This is in NY so tax bumps it up a couple of thousand.

    Ive been going to diffferent dealers all week and I need a car pretty soon by the weekend or by the end of the month.
    Dealers dont seem to have too many of the limited in stock much less the exact one I want.
    I was thinking maybe I should just get a cheaper car like a Honda Civic
    and use that for the next year with low monthly payments (possibly higher interest rate)
    untill I have saved more to put on a down payment for the Sonata.

    If you are okay with driving down to NJ or PA, you might wanna check out the prices that piezon got (Post no. 8302, 8306) for similar specs. Also another user got a similar price in Utah (Post no. 8320 ). Request quotes frm NJ and PA dealers and take it to your local dealer to see if they'll match it.
  • I just bought a factory-certified 2010 Sonata GLS, standard package, 6400 miles, for $15,270. (Location: Kansas City) The car is in excellent condition and the carfax showed no issues. Good deal??
  • backybacky Twin CitiesPosts: 18,907
    Well, that's probably close to the car's sale price when new, if the original owner got a good discount for that time. But it was a different world then, for Hyundai and for the used car market. Amazing what low-miles 3-year-old cars are going for these days! The certified warranty is a nice extra on a used car. Did you get the bumper-to-bumper warranty extended to 10 years/100k miles, or just the 10-year powertrain warranty as on a new Sonata?

    Since you already bought it, it's really too late to worry about whether or not you got a good deal. Enjoy the car!

    FWIW - in Maryland lists a 2013 2.4L Lmtd with Premium Package with MSRP of $29,955 for $26,460.
  • Hi Mike,
    Could you please send a scan or photo of the OTD price of 23K which shows the MSRP? I am trying to get hold of the dealer to match your great price, but he needs to know the MSRP, color and any special accessories you got?
    It would be helpful if i get that quote.

    Thanks a ton

    I just purchased a 2012 Hyundai Sonata/PEP $23045 MSRP (Front and cargo Mat, Cargo net, Ipod cable, Remote Start and Mug guards)

    +$620 Taxes
    +$229 Dealer Fee
    +$40 Tags
    - $2000 incentives ($1000 Bonus Cash, $500 Owner Loyalty, $500 Eco trade)
    Also I got 13500 for my trade 2009 4cyl Sonata Limited 57000 miles

    $19389 - $6000 trade equity = 13389 OTD.

    Good Deal?
  • I am getting the following deal for 2013 Limited with Technology Package for lease of 36 months 12000 Miles/Yr.
    $325 per month. And I am getting $5000 cash-back from my trade-in 2007 Nissan Altima 3.5 SE (Fully Loaded) with unibody damage.
    I am getting a similar deal of $268 per month for 2013 Sonata SE with Nav+Sunroof.
    This is a 4th july deal, so need response fast.
    What I essentially think is that they are giving me $7000 for my trade-in, and paying $2000 for the down payment.
    Please tell me if this is a good deal or not.
    P.S: the SE full price came to 25700, and Limited came to 26800.

    Hi guys, i´ve been following this forum and I need advice from an offer that I received. The dealer offered 23.4k for a 2013 sonata se with push to start, no navi or leather seats with lifetime warranty. Is this a good deal? I offered 22.5K but they refused. What do you guys think is a good price? I wanted 2012 but they ran out of the color I wanted. Thanks!
  • piezonpiezon Posts: 23
    what's the sticker price???
  • qnguyen17qnguyen17 Posts: 10
    msrp was $24,000ish. After taxes and fees, it came to roughly $26,000. They want $23,400 otd which includes the $500 financing rebate and $400 college grad rebate. BF is telling me to wait until the end of the year bc I can get it for cheaper...
  • I got a 2013 Sonata SE MSRP $24,410.
    $22,500 OTD after rebates, taxes, and fees.

    (Traded a 2007 BMW 328xi Coupe 57K miles for ~$17,500.) Considering I lost about $1,000-$1,500 in what I expected in trade, looks like your quote of $23,400 is right around me. You could probably do better but I'm not a good haggler.
  • qnguyen17qnguyen17 Posts: 10
    Hi! Thank you for the reply. My max price is $22,500 which is what you paid. $23,400 is the lowest I got after talking to 2 dealers. I am going to another dealer this weekend so hopefully they can do better. unfortunately i'm not good at haggling either :(. Did your car come with any other options such as floor mats. Cargo net and so on?
  • The MSRP included Mud Guard $95, Cargo Mat $95, Carpeted Floor Mats $100. They gave me All Weather Mats (Worth $115) instead of the the Carpeted... saving me $15! Which I asked for. Haha...

    I don't know where you are but I bought mine in PA with sales tax of 6%... if it makes any difference. It's also not white which costs $200 more.

    You might also try going back to the higher of the first two dealers and let 'em know you got an offer for ~$23.4 and see what they say?

    I was little stressed about it last night after signing all the papers - thinking what if I could have done better... :shades: ehhh it's done... just going to enjoy it.
  • qnguyen17qnguyen17 Posts: 10
    I live in GA and our sales tax is 7%. First dealer called back today and offered $23k. I'm waiting until Sunday to go to second dealer to see if they go lower. Ideally I want $22.5 which I think they can do. I kinda blew my chances with first dealer BC I told him 2nd could go litter and he wants it in writing for him to beat the offer. Rookie mistake BC its first time buying a car :(
  • Was $25, 750 out of door price? I bought a 2013 Sonata limited 2.4L(no Nav) OTD yesterday for 25400 in NJ (7% tax). Good deal?
    Enjoy your new ride!

    I got my car in PA but they matched the price given to me by a dealership in NJ, about 25 miles closer to Staten Island. Go on their website and send an e-mail to their Internet Mgr who will give you his best price on-line. It's Muller Hyundai in Stewartsville, NJ just outside phillipsburg. Good luck
  • piezonpiezon Posts: 23
    No. $25,750 was the final sale price after the $500 finance cash back. On top of that was 6% tax plus a little over $200 in doc fees, title, plates, registration, etc. However, mine included the pano sun roof & tech package (Nav + back-up camera) which is a $2,900 option. Without that tech package, I figure my OTD price would have been right around $25,000 even so it sounds like you got a pretty good deal as well. The fact that they let us drive the car home at those prices means they made some money so who knows if we could have gotten it for a few hundred less but who cares. The car is a dream.
