#3047 of 4451 Re: 2009 Elantra Se for 11k OTD [wassabie]
Jul 25, 2009 (4:27 am)
I am now a 2009 owner. I bought it at McCarthy Hyundai in Olathe, KS.
I traded in a 1995 Ford Windstar i bought for $400 a year ago. Cash for clunkers credit of 4,500
I paid $11,543 total (tax, destination, processing all included)
It is the SE model with Bluetooth, alloy wheels, brake assist, electronic stability control, but did not include the spoiler. I had them tint the windows and add a pin stripe and that was included in the 11,543.

That's VERY interesting. No XM, but still, not bad at all.
Too bad it won't work with the Touring.

#3051 of 4451 Elantra Touring Base price paid
Jul 25, 2009 (6:44 am)
Just signed the deal last night on a 2009 Elantra Touring base automatic. OTD 15,750. subtract the cash for clunkers (4500) to that, and the price OTD was 11,250. This was from a MD dealer, but the car is registered in VA so tax was only 3%.
Here's the detailed breakdown:
$14,371 car price
+$100 Documentation/Processing fee
+$84 State fees
+$500 VA tax
=$15,750 final price.
-$4,500 cash for clunkers
financing was 4.39% over 60 months.

long island ny. just bought a 2009 hyundai elantra gls auto 02/ab pop package plus mud guards and mats. was hard to haggle 16,700 - 2000- 4500 = 10,200 + taxes and fees = 11,892 got the 60 month loan at 4.39 total monthly = $222. or 51 per week
brand new 8 miles on the o/d. cashed in a chevy van 1998 a/c not working neeeds compressor power window not working on passenger side nice dent on rear quarter panel bought van in 2001 for 10000 with 30,000 miles now has 125000 miles. I could have gotten a better price if my down payment was cash.Being involved in the cash for clunkers the dealer has to float the 4500 plus all the paper work involveds There were a lot of people in the dealership looking to cash in on this govt handout and i did not want to lose out on the 4500 so i was able to get the price a bit under invoice. 17,770 msrp 17,148 invoice neg to 16,700 i had to really haggle to get that price
that was my high price was looking for 16000 but they were going to let me leave.
i already have a 2003 elantra i bought from same dealer in 03. have had no problems with the car except the headlight bulbs. 135,000 miles and everything works well. Bought the car because of the rebate and cash for clunkers plan. and knowing the car is a great value. A bit of advice for those sitting on the fence cash for clunkers program is very popular and they only have about 250,000 vouchers for the whole country that comes to around 5,000 per state, When the money runs out, the program is over.

Hard to haggle, you ain't kidding. These guys don't MOVE up in NY state. Healey was fine with making an invoice deal (and actually admitted to the invoice price too) but wouldn't budge below that (I guess in NYC there's a little more wiggle room, probably more dealers around).
Is there a shortage of the PZEV setups or something?
Oh, cash for clunkers isn't for everyone, though I bet there's a ton of people buying 20 year old used cars for $500 to use on the deal. Or trying to anyway, since now all of a sudden they're worth $4500.
On the plus side, I just drove home in my 09 Touring AT. It was a demo (only way I could get one down to the price I wanted) but it feels great...not as much power as I'm used to having but I'll get used to it. Low end torque feels good, A/C works much better than in the old Mazda3 hatch, and the ride is a lot nicer. Got detoured onto a side road for a parade and got to take it through a couple of twisties...no, not as good as the Mazda3 but not TOO far off: handled them pretty well.
Prestige Hyundai in Kingston treated me very well...the Healey guys are OK, but Prestige looks like a much better operation and they take better care of you. Worth the extra drive: Healey is a little too much of an assembly-line typical car purchasing experience. And you can see visibly why they can afford to make invoice sales...most of their PCs are ancient and still have CRTs, and the "showroom" is smaller than some studio apartments.

Did anyone see a Hyundai national ad on TV Friday, 7/24 for the Elantra with a $2,000 rebate and 0% financing? There is also an ad in my local newspaper that had $2,000 rebate and 0% financing for 72 mos or $1,500 bonus cash/0% financing for 60 mos. This must be in response to the Chrsyler matching to the Cash for Clunkers program. Has anyone seen this bonus cash/financing offer in addition to the $2,000 rebate?

One of the requirements of the cahs for clunkers programs is that an individual must have had the car registered and insured in his name for at least 12 months.
You can't buy a junker today and flip it next week and be elligible for the cash for clunker program.
