"Personally I tried Beacon, NY (Healey), Kingston, NY (Prestige), Danbury, CT, White Plains, NY (skipped the couple of small dealers in-between Beacon and White Plains) and sent a couple of e-mails further south. No one wanted to go below invoice on an SE or Touring. "
Hmmm.....I'm a New Yorker from Orange County, NY. I got a laugh over this as I bought my 2008 Elantra from Suresky in Goshen NY. The reason I laughed? Because according to you they were skipped over because they are a small dealership.....that's a good one. They are about the only reputable Dealership in Orange County. And one of the most HONEST. And I guess you felt they were small because they only take up the biggest area on the side of 17 E going towards the city. Such a big dealership you have to drive right past them as you head towards the Thruway. I'm not sure where you are from, but everyone in Orange Co. knows Healey is a ripoff, Prestige is a Toyota Dealership with Hyundai too, and the closer to White Plains you get the more expensive the cars get. And phone calls will get you everything. I saw the newspaper ad last year for Healy and I called Suresky as they are only 20 mins. from me and Suresky beat their add with the price I paid. All I did was mention what I saw in the paper and they said come in, we beat anything. But if you internet search here the cars are all higher than what is listed in the newspaper.

Oh i know Healey is a ripoff. Prestige is actually a nice place to deal with..pretty low pressure and upscale place, pleasant experience. Though they aren't the cheapest.
And the reason i skipped Suresky is because they're WAY out of my way. I live in Beacon and work just outside of White Plains. I wasn't even willing to go to Kia of New Windsor more than once. I stay on this side of the river for the most part, 84 to 684.

One question: did you actually offer to buy the car for $12,000, or was it more like a number you were tossing around in discussions with the dealer? If it was an offer, the dealer has accepted your offer and that creates a (verbal) contract. Whether you now want to go back and negotiate further is up to you. If it were me, I would stand by the offer I made. I know there will be some here who disagree.

ginny, ginny, where art thou? Are you the proud owner of a brand spankin' new Hyundai Elantra yet or are you still rrrraaaaastlin' with those nasty dealers?
Verbal offer backy? Stand on it? Hmmm...I can't count the number of times a dealer has "said" something during negotiations that later turned out to be a slight exaggeration and was therefore null and void. Wasn't worth my time to throw a tizzy when it happened. Just a live and learn, I will NOT return kinda thing.

hyundai newbie, sounds like you got a great deal. I also purchase my first in July: a 2009 Elantra GLS PZEV, AT, popular equip package (w/o sunroof), floor mats, mud guards, and trunk cargo net.
MSRP: $17,795 (destination incl $695.00)
Doc fee: $45
-cash rebate $2,000
Out-the-Door Total: $15,401.50
My 99 Pontiac Grand Am didn't qualify for the clunker rebate. I thought this was a great deal. I'm in western NY and it was the best price i could get in 3 cities. Last month the TMV was around 15,800 for this car (not including rebates); now it's $16,660! Looks like the market value shot up for the Elantra's. Plus I think Hyundai made a killing with sales in July, especially due to the clunker rebates.
#3099 of 4450 Hyundai Elantra at #6

FWIW, Hyundai has placed rather well on the very popular Cash for Clunkers government give away plan with it's Elantra coming in #6 on the sales charts to date. A testament to how good and practical this particular model is in regards to this program. I'd bet that the Sonata in the midsize dept. and the Santa Fe in the small SUV dept. have got impressive numbers as well. Keep laughing Toyota and Honda but I think this upstart Hyundai is coming on strong and isn't showing signs of slowing down.
Hyundai Elantra = value for the dollar. Sales figures don't lie.

I have been quoted the following for a new '09 Elantra GLS A/T with the Popular Equip Package (nothing else -- no mats, etc.). Got them to a starting price of $16,610 (something like invoice minus $500) - $2k rebate - $4.5k (CARS) + $228 TTL =
OTD price of $10,328.
I'm thinking this is a very solid deal. (Would have actually been driving it right now, but realized was missing some of the insurance paperwork to prove it's been insured for the past-year). Dealer said to come in tomorrow AM and wrap things up.
Just want to run this by folks and confirm it's a solid deal.

Getting the Elantra you listed for $16,610 before rebates is an ok price. Unless your destination charge is different than $720, invoice price on the car you described should be $17,004. This means you'll be getting the car for about $400 below invoice. While some people have gotten their Elantra for as much as $1000 or more below invoice, it really depends on your location since in some areas the dealers aren't budging from invoice at all.
If you can, visit or call several other dealerships in your area and see if they'll beat that price. If they won't, you can feel comfortable taking that deal. The immense popularity of cash for clunkers has greatly driven up recent auto sales. This may mean that those $1000+ below invoice deals are a thing of the past now that demand is higher and the dealers aren't finding it necessary to give those hefty discounts to generate sales.
#3102 of 4450 Elantra Touring GL - 5pd - Canada
Aug 07, 2009 (6:24 am)
Just got an Elantra Touring GL up in here in the Great White North. 21240 CDN out the door including tax (5% to Mr. Harper, 8% to Mr. McG), delivery, and other fees + 0 % financing. We got the Vivid Blue...we figured it was the "youngest" looking color.
It comes with floor mats. Anyone know if the Cargo cover was included. We saw it on the showroom model and a few other ones in the parking lot but it is listed as an accessory. We pick it up on Monday! First time Hyundai owner, I've had a Mazda Protege for 9 years now. This is about the same amount of car for 2 grand less! Only thing extras the Protege has are mags and a sunroof.

Thanks for the response and advice. I'm in Portland, OR.
I did attempt to solicit some quotes from other dealers in the area, but with little success. (They don't like to communicate via e-mail... I thought that was the whole idea behind an "Internet" sales department.)
