Negotiating for a 2013 Sonata GLS

I am negotiating with a dealership on a silver 2013 Sonata, 17k miles, warrantied by Hyundai. The car is in clean condition with a few, small dings on the exterior and some rub marks on the bumper. Looks to have been a former lease. Checks out fine with mechanic. Clean Carfax. This would be a cash purchase.

Would $12,250, no dealership fees, be a good price before tax? Location is NYC.

    Could use more info. What trim level? What color?
  • The car is silver with the popular package (heated front seats, power driver's seat, alloy wheels, etc).

    I made the purchase. Still curious to hear what you think.

    good price, very low mileage, smart to get an independent inspection by a mechanic! Be warned that the YF Sonata (2011-14) requires a lot of TLC. Suggest you register online with "my hyundai" and then do a VIN check of outstanding recalls. I still own my 2011 Sonata and have had 8 recalls in the past 5.5 years. It can be a good car but you really have to watch the oil level (weekly). There is an owners forum on another site with lots of good info...

    Good info! ty

    I see two closed campaigns listed under this vehicle:
    SONATA SHIFT LEVER RECALL CAMPAIGN
    SANTA FE & SONATA ENGINE CONTROL MODULE SERVICE CAMPAIGN (software update)

    There are no open campaigns for the VIN.

    Seems like a good price
  • Wound up being 1 fee, $75 for a documentation fee on top of the NY Registration & plates. Seemed to be a different department from the sales rep so I let it go after spending 5 hours at the dealership. Got them to put $10k of the sale on two 2% cash back credit cards though, so net win.

    Dealer doc fees are restricted to $75 in NYS. So, naturally, every dealer charges $75, there.

    Typical, and I wouldn't sweat it.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!
