We bought a 2004 Hyundai Sonata two months ago and liked it so well, when the 2006 model hit the only Hyundai dealer in town we went right over to see it. They had an automatic $3000 markup on it because they were "rare" at the time, but last week they got in a big shipment and took that off. So we went over after lunch with the intention that if they could get the one we wanted to us with a payment within $100 of what we're already paying, we'd get one.
Well, they didn't. But we fell in love with it... light grey leather interior, every bell and whistle you can think of including heated seats, 6 disk in-dash cd changer/mp3 player, a power sunroof, an auto-dimming rear view mirror, and auto climate control to name a few. After a bit of pacing over it, we made our decision...
There's a black '06 Sonata in our driveway now! He told us it's the first one sold in our city... so, for now, we have a completely unique car! The payment isn't pretty, but The Car sure is!!!
I'm still wondering how we managed to innocently go out to lunch, and come home several hours later driving a brand new car!!!
