Hyundai Sonata Now 3rd Best Selling Sedan in US
In August, the Korean manufacturer sold 21,399 units, falling just behind the Honda Accord at 22,506 and the Toyota Camry at a little over 30,000.
Sonata's been besting rivals like the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Malibu for some time, but beating one of the Japanese leaders is another story.
It's no wonder. Sonata's sexy styling, low price, snappy interior and very efficient drivetrain have captured everyone's attention.
With sales on fire, the likelihood of getting a great deal diminishes. However, the lower starting price of the Sonata still makes it attractive for buyers considering a mid-size sedan.
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.
