i don't get it - did you offer to buy it for $28K, including your trade ???

i doubt they let that car go for anything under $35K. if they do, they're high.

but if they're giving you $10K for your GLS, then yes, i would say that for $28K the IE is a steal.....

Hello,

Yes, that's $30,871(including tax and DMV fee) + my 2009 GLS Sonata.

The only proof I have that the Dealer owned the SRT8 is the car fax which shows he purchased the car with 1,000 miles on it. Although this dealership comes "highly recommended" from a friend of mine and they seem to have an honest reputation.

The dealer has the original window sticker which shows an MSR of $49,640 and includes the Interior Appearance Group, SRT Option Group II, 430N Media Center and Auto Trans.

In hindsight it's a little unfair to ask for everyone's opinion since I haven't described my Sonata. The Sonata is the low end model with 55k miles. The interior shows some wear and the driver's seat has a hole in the fabric. The outside has a few dings but no rust.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas!

Regards,
George

You think that 10K+ miles on a two year old vehicle is HIGH? <--Roughly FIVE THOUSAND miles of driving a year. Unless your hobby is looking at your cars, I find that statement ridiculous.

Sounds like a great deal. You know what they say about if it sounds too good to be true...
If all checks out, I say bye bye Sonata!

high for a SRT

average or low for a normal car

most SRT's are weekend drivers/ stored winters

ive seen tons of IE for sale with 1,000-2,000 miles on them in the past few months on Ebay

and YES my hobby IS looking at my car!


IM GOING TO DRIVE OVER YOUR CAR
AND DO A BURNOUT ON YOUR HOOD!
