Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

1st brand new car I owned
by Pine Cowgirl from Pine, AZ | July 22, 2009
I bought a Tiburon brand new when i was 35 years old. I had never owned a brand new car and I have never regretted my choice. I have now had my tiburon 7 years and it's still running just like the first day i bought it. Only issue I had was clutch when car was 5 1/2 years old but other than that, all you have to do is regularly scheduled maintenance and replace tires when necessary. This car is awesome and a total blast!
This car was my first car. I really like it. Very fun. The performance and handling is great. The one thing that disappointed me was the gas mileage. Driving conservatively I got 27 mpg. I would recommend this car to anybody though. I also love the exterior styling. It's so far ahead of its time. When people ask me how old it is they can't believe it's 10 years old.
