#2750 of 4451 Re: Is this typical for a volume Hyundai dealer? [jdev12]

Towne Hyundai in NJ is offering $1700 below dealer invoice for the 2008 Elantra GLS, $1000 rebate, "destination included". Should I assume that other volume Hyundai dealers will be offering similar savings and factor this into my target price? I'm shopping for a GLS automatic with the '02 Popular Equipment package'
You can get one for $14,000 at Suresky in Goshen, NY. All you have to do is tell them you know someone whose husband and her bought 2 cars from them for that price. They will match anything you see in a newspaper too. And all the fuel pumps are fixed according to Hyundai in the lots for sale. Recall letters are still going out from what I hear, but our fuel pumps were fixed and I haven't seen a letter.
I don't know where this dealership in is NJ, but Suresky is a good dealership and they don't jerk you around.

14.5K sounds a little more for SE manual w/o sunroof. Of course I'm comparing with mine..which is auto Transmission SE for 14.7 K. I guess you should be able to get SE manual for 13.8 or so. call a bunch of dealers and let them know that you have a 14k quote from the other guy...can you save me a couple of hundred to drive to you ?
that was my play..

I guess you should be able to get SE manual for 13.8 or so.
That may be unrealistic now with the 2008 SEs almost gone (zero in my area for example) and only $1000 in general rebates, but you can always give it a shot. At this time of month you might find a dealer who needs to sell a few more cars to make their monthly (and quarterly) sales targets.
#2753 of 4451 Great Deal for Elantra GLS~
Sep 28, 2008 (10:37 am)
I just got my 2004 Hyundai Elantra with 54,000mileage on it for 6841 out the door.
I thought it was a pretty good price to pay since the car seems to be pretty nice. It doesn't seem to be in any accidents prior to my purchase. Although, there were a few minor dents and scratches. It also has cruise control installed, which sure comes in handy when I go for a road trip.
I'm guessing I paid so little cause it's a manual. (I saw that a dealer retail on KBB is above 8000. True Market Value gives a 6700 price tag for dealer retail)
What do you guys think? Is that a good price to pay? (I guess I just wanted to know if I got ripped off, since this was my first time buying a car by myself)

I think that's a good price for a good car, and I think you're right about the price being lower because it's a stick--most folks prefer automatics. But the stick definitely provides better fuel economy on the Elantra. I've had both a stick and automatic Gen 3 Elantra, and the stick was at least 10% better in fuel economy. And was more fun to drive. I have an automatic now, a 2004 GT hatch, and it's been a really good car. I will soon be turning it over to my 2nd son for school.
I think another reason the price is reasonable is because you will be looking at a major service in 6000 miles, for the 60k service which includes a timing belt. That could easily run around $500 or so, so shop around when it comes time.
Sep 28, 2008 (11:41 am)
Yep, that's a problem my dad told me as well. I'm also going to need to change the tire pretty soon. (Probably in the next three months or so, or when winter comes)
I'll probably replace a few stuff as well, along with the timing belt. Then again, I won't be driving a lot so getting to 60k Mileage might take about 6~8 months.
#2756 of 4451 Elantra GLS with popular package for 12999 + tax +ttl
Sep 28, 2008 (6:19 pm)
Thank you all who posted here in this forum
I almost finalized a deal for Elantra GLS with popular package for 12999 + tax +ttl in MAssachussets ( It looks like this is the Teaser car ) cargo net and one other stuff was also there.
OTD was around 14100.
Please let me know if it is a good deal
Sep 28, 2008 (6:22 pm)
I leave in Massachusetts. The dealer near have Sonata 2009 GLs for 15999 ( auto) Is it a good price. Elantra gls + popular for 12999
Is it good to buy Sonata over Elantra because it is a newer model and almost same price as Elantra SE. ( one more reason is Sonata have Electronic stability control )

Sep 28, 2008 (7:19 pm)
Yes, those are good prices especially on the Elantra--really great if the Elantra is an automatic. I've seen lower prices on the Sonata, but $16k for a GLS AT is still very good.
Which one? Is it worth a bit more than $3k to you to have the ESC and the extra size and power of the Sonata? Or do you prefer a smaller car?

Sep 29, 2008 (3:12 am)
Its both, There are not many Elantra SEs are in the market. Because of that there is no price advantage. One is last year model other one is new model. Bigger, have similar features and probably more comfortable. --May have better resale value
mileage seems to be not much different ( Elantra may give more by 2 to 3 miles )
If mileage is not a major difference which on would you prefer
The elantra i am getting is automatic + popular package + have mudguards and cargo net i think
Is it worth to add bluetooth ( usually i can get a gps with that feature for same price )
