New Incentives on Hyundai Sonata
But now that buyers are eagerly awaiting the newly redesigned 2011 Hyundai Sonata, the current Sonata's sales have slowed. Despite its high performance, decent price, and great warranty, its October sales were actually down this year.
Luckily for car shoppers, Hyundai decided to do something about it: provide incentives.
From now until January 4, 2010, each current Hyundai purchase comes with an offer of 0% financing for up to 60 months and 1.9% for 72 months. Or, buyers may opt instead for the $1,000 rebate through November 30th. Current Hyundai owners are also in for a treat in the form of a $500 loyalty rebate, and there's a $1,000 discount for military members.
For a competitive car with a long warranty, these are offers well worth considering.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
