looking at the black koup sx manual with leather and sunroof.
emailing back and forth with dealer and got quoted for $18900.

Offhand, I don't know but why not simply go to Edmunds and plug in the information and it will tell you what the going price is? I'm sure you can find a dealer who will match the price if not better it.

But you should also understand that if you get into financing and trade-ins that this gets very dicey and confusing. There are two transactions involved with a trade-in. You buy his car and he buys yours and you don't discuss trade-in until you get his firm cash price.

And then you have to make sure he doesn't give you the flim-flam of the various books they concoct to talk you down on your trade-in. If you are a cash buyer then you are in the driver's seat. If you finance it you have to ensure that your credit score allows for the lowest possible interest rate. When we bought our car we got a full 3% lower interest rate than the couple who were in the office next door. Cash is always king.

That sounds like a good price. I have an SX koup with the sunroof and leather and I paid a few bucks over 20 but that was after tax and everything so it sounds like a similar deal to what i got. If you can get a low interest rate (which i did not) and monthly payments that you can afford, GO FOR IT! this car is sick and you'll love every second with it!

Make sure you take advantage of every rebate you can, and if you can pit two rival dealers against each other, do it. Thats how I got my Forte SX loaded for 17550 (before TTT) with no trade in. I talked them down to 18300, and got a $750 rebate for being with in 2 graduated (that ends april 14th I think). Also make sure to check the internet prices, their always lower, but it can be deceiving because kia puts all available rebates factored into the price, a lot of them you wont qualify for either. Good luck with your buy, I love my Koup, I just wish black stayed cleaner longer...
