    Im getting my 2014 turbo Optima appraised professionally this thursday. With that, I'm going to finally look into getting a stinger. I'm aiming for a GT limited model..which in Canada is the top trim and has a MSRP of $49,995. So my question to the already lucky owners is, how much were you able to negotiate with your salesmen off the MSRP? I know its gona vary from province to province and dealer to dealer..but any info helps, Even from my neighbors down south in America. Id love to get some input on how far some dealers were willing to bend..It would be great to know if 2-3k off is a possibility (because thats what id like to aim for). Making a base price of roughly just under 47k + all fees and taxes. or if that amount is simply to much for them to lose.

    I got my Stinger GT AWD with DriveWise for about $3,300 under MSRP. Pretty happy with that.

    Thats a damn good deal for a car so new. That also equates to over 4k CAD. I'm just glad to know it isnt impossible to save that amount with proper negotiations. Thanks for the reply

    I also got top dollar for my trade (KBB trade value for "excellent" condition) without haggling. I was able to negotiate $2603 off MSRP by presenting the quote from Edmunds.com in addition to the $6500 lease cash. Basically, over $9k off MSRP on a GT2 Stinger plus the tax savings due to a $31k trade in.

    Did somebody come and look at your car to appraise it? Or was it an online quote

    I got an online quote while I was on the Edmunds website but I had also previously shopped around a couple of dealerships prior. The highest offer I had gotten was from CarMax for $30k and that was last year in November. Edmunds had my trade coming in right at $31k but again, for "Excellent" condition (which most dealerships won't even consider). Also, the vehicle had been in an accident last year with about $14k in repairs (no frame damage). Vehicle history report was still showing clean though. I had just received my Diminished Value claim check from the at fault party of $3500. The payoff on the vehicle was $32,200.

    I wouldn't get too excited over what discounts the US are getting. Not comparable to Canada. I can tell you the dealer cost is just under $47K CDN. Best case scenario, you'd be able to negotiate a 3% markup on the cost. A more likely scenario, 5% markup. Then there will be $1560 for freight, $200 for colour, $100 on federal air conditioning excise tax.

    The best offer I got in Vancouver was $49,995 including freight/PDI, colour, dealer fees, etc.. so just PST/GST on top of that. This was for a cash purchase of a GT Limited. It was three days before month end so probably could have knocked some more off if I had the patience but I just couldn't wait another day to drive this thing :)

    I've been quoted Invoice ($41k) for a GT w/AWD and assistance package. Costco pricing seems to be invoice as well

    Anyone getting below invoice? (not OTD pricing, this is before Taxes, etc)

    Quick answer, yes. In the USA people are getting invoice or slightly below invoice prices. Research pricing(Edmunds.com) and bring it with you to the dealer. The more "ammo" you have the easier it will be to get a fair deal. Good luck and hope you join our Stinger "HIVE"!

    damn i would have thought the dealers made 8 to 10% on the stinger. 3 to 5%?thats a low profit margin.

    Got a trade-in estimate on my 2009 Maxima from CarMax and KBB prior to heading to dealership. Negotiated to the CarMax estimate, took advantage of the lease incentive and trade-in value. Minimized the MF impact as well. Ended up with a good deal, which includes a dealership lifetime warranty. Explored the possibility of price battle between two Kia dealerships, but decided against it because I’m not “that guy”. :cool: Best of luck with your purchase.

    Most brand new models do have markups for a while until the hype dies down. Unfortunately for Kia they didn’t have the immediate $50k+ market available so they are heavily incentivizing them to get them on the roads. This will, and already is creating more demand so that will change sooner than later. However Kia didn’t build this car for profit, they did it to make a better name for themselves so they can access the $50k+ market going forward. Kia dealers already make profit on volume sales from Optimas, Fortes etc. so no need to be concerned for the dealers.;)
