Sonata Recall Provides Reasons to Wait
The Sonata was only recently released, meaning that the problem only extends to the several thousand cars that have been sold or are in dealer showrooms, but it highlights an issue that new car buyers should be aware of.
Cars like the Sonata which have been newly designed often have kinks to work out no matter how much testing has gone on before they are brought to market. Besides saving money due to supply and demand issues, this is another reason you should wait before buying a newly introduced model.
In general, the Sonata may be a good value for buyers after a waiting period of several months.
My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, CarsDirect, and NADAGuides are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
