Hi Guys!

I'll be purchasing a 2016 Forte 5 SX graphite steel, automatic with tech package and remote start. I'm a USAA member, will be PCSing to LA this month. Unfortunately LA's dealerships don't offer pre-orders and they're giving me this excuse saying how they don't do pre-orders.

My savings certificated got 5-6K off MSRP with options but Kia Cerritos is saying I need to pay $25730.50 OTD saying how they have dealership installed options and I would have to pay 8-9% county tax on top.

What do you guys think and how much did you guys pay in California/LA?

Looking forward to becoming a new member!

Well I haven't been able to actually put money down on the car yet, these dealerships are saying that I would have to walk in to finalize the deal. And I feel like they're trying to pull a fast one on me.

I'd look at paperwork, and make sure you have, in writing, that if the car is not 100% what you want (aka what they are saying it is) when it gets there (if it's not already), then you get any and all money you put down back. Try to secure a vin, color code, etc so we can possibly see what we find
I paid $23000 for mine and it was new, but a year old. The dealer options are prob floor mats etc... Usually they can be removed
Also, mines an auto with the basic sx package and I don't live in comifornia, I'm in AZ, forte5 lives in cali though!

Kia of Cerritos at LA wanted me to pay 26K OTD for a fully loaded SX with remote start and their dealership installed options (said it was worth $1,500 in spare tire, floor mats, mud guards) etc. I said I didn't want those options in the first place and asked them to pre-order one that had the EXACT stuff I wanted.

Oh shit nice! Thanks man! Where in SoCa are you? I'll have a rental by then so I can pick you up. PM me your details. I'll also be going to Kia of DTLA, Kia Cerritos and Kia Alhambra as I've got them as USAA certified dealers too.
