Second VIN is same.
3rd VIN is $22,253.44 for invoice amount. If you were there in person I would say $22,000-$22,500 would be a good offer before rebates. If you e-mail them that they might entertain that or ignore you.
Last VIN is $22,609 for invoice. X would be $22,400 - $22,909 for what they would let it go for. They have a great inventory so if they sell off volume you might make the lower offer and go from there. Rebates are not retroactive, so you have to wait until you get the $750 offer before you can use it.

Good luck let me know how it goes.
They had already sold the 3rd VIN there that was at lower invoice. The SEL trims in hatchbacks won't stay in stock anywhere. The lowest I could get them down to was 23,00 on it. He looked up the rebates for me and gave me the 750.. you said I didn't qualify so I was surprised and that pushed me over to agree at 23,000 so I could get it soon. Plus I get the 500 college student one. So I signed at 23000 + the 1350 in rebates contingent on trade in being 4k.

All the calculators say I should get about 4k for it. I have extra subwoofers and speakers goodies in the car. He recommended I remove it since they won't give extra for it. Any tricks I should be aware of when trying to get my trade in at maximum value?

I'm taking it in Thursday to finalize it.

I e-mailed him the offer you posted for me and he wrote me this back:

"I CHECKED AND YOU DONT HAVE A 750 PRIVATE OFFER AVAILABLE. THERE IS ONE AVAILABLE FOR A DIFFERENT KYSER AT A DIFFERENT ADDRESS(IN WILLOW PARK), BUT NOTHING UNDER YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS."

My address is in Hudson Oaks, TX 76087.

At high speeds (50-70) in my 2012 I hear a very annoying rattling/ticking sound coming from the frame of the touch screen. I can press down on the frame and the sound goes away. Is something like this covered by the warranty?

They might try and push it through but I forget if you didn't have a private offer yet or not.
Def. take all the speaker stuff out, add-ons like that do nothing for trade value. Don't worry about detailing it, we can spot that as "I really want a lot for my trade" and usually laugh because it really won't change anything. Big thing is CEL and damage.

It's probably just en route.
Yeah, they've been saying that for weeks. My father-in-law said there's a way for dealers to check where the car is at in the delivery process, but only the dealer who ordered the vehicle can do so. I'm just trying to get them to give me a more specific timeframe, because I've been hearing "it'll probably be here tomorrow" since I first called about the vehicle a few weeks back.

$750 coupon

I ordered my car on June 5 and I got $500 off discount with 3.9%. I just received my coupon for $750 off. My car should arrive mid July . Can I still use the coupon when I pick up the car? It expires mid august.should the dealer give me a problem to give me this discount with the $500 offer?

I am in the same boat as Dolphsky. I ordered June 6, the $750 coupon expires 7/31. Dealer said if the car does not arrive by then, then I can not use the coupon.
