    Bought a Brilliant Silver '04 Sonata GLS w/sunroof and rear mud guard
    options today----$20,150 sticker, 1750 in rebates, 1250 extra off sticker
    net 17,150. $7150 for my '02 Elantra GLS w/every option, 14,500 miles, net
    deal $10K.

    So far, impressive car, especially when compared to the Elantra (although
    the Elan was good for what it is)---

    I am fairly certain you will enjoy your new Sonata. We own a 2003 white
    Sonata Lx with the Moonroof/ABS/TCS option (i.e. fully loaded). My wife
    loves everything about the car including the leather seats which come
    standard in the GLS as well. At the time we bought (April 2003) the rebates
    were only $500 so you got a good deal there. You should be getting between
    22 and 27 mpg in mixed driving.

    You overpaid by about $1500, but then maybe you made it up on the trade.
    Did you?

    At the time we bought (April 2003) the rebates
    Doesn't really matter, its all negoiatable.

    You should be getting between
    Got 28 on a thousand mile trip (with 2400 miles on odometer) on my 2003 GLS.

    I somewhat suspected that I overpaid by about $1000 bucks, not especially on
    the new car part of the deal, but the number I got on the Elan ($7,150).
    According to three online used car appraisal services, the trade range on
    the Elan was a low of $6,000 to a high of $8,300 as optioned (not including
    the aftermarket alloys that I added). I prolly could have gotten another
    $500 to maybe $1000 for the trade, if I had held out. And another $300 to
    $500 off the new car. But Se la vie, it's done-------
