Yeah, I agree with you, 13999 + tag + taxes does not excite me. I did ask if the 13999 was OTD. They said they could'nt do it for that because it is about what they have in it. I bet not. I would still consider this car if OTD at 13,999 because the car is at Hyundai dealer and less than 5 miles from us. Very few used SE models in our area at the moment. They will either sell it to someone else or be calling soon.
If I lived in the state of VA I where I could buy new in the 15.5k range i probably would go new.

Did you get them to list everything you are being charged for? Keep in mind that the dealership wants to get rid of the car and has some room to negotiate, probably. I really hear the Hyundai is a good car. If there are dealership fees or administrative charges, see if they are willing to negotiate on these. what happened to me is that I lowballed the car they were offering me to the point the manager refused. I really didn't want to buy a new car but if I were to buy one, I'd definitely buy a Hyandai and not worry much about a few hundred dollars here or there. I suggest you ask for a reduction in their administrative fees and see what happens. sometimes they can, sometimes they can't, but you can't hurt by trying. Here's how you do it: Tell the finance guy you'll pay $12,500. He'll say no, it's impossible. Tell him you like the car, but need the price lowered, how about $12,9k? He might say no again. Say, "Look, let's both be happy. How about $13K? He might say no again but you can't lose for trying, can you? Maybe they're willing to throw in extra's for free, like leather seats or a longer term of Sirius or something like that.

It seems high, based on 2009 GLSes with moonroof within 100 miles of the Twin Cities. Is it a Hyundai Certified car? Check online pricing in the area, and use the lower prices for leverage if you are really set on that particular car. There's quite a few of these around the area, and 31k is high for a 2009 (probably a rental).
If you can live with something other than an Elantra... there's 2009 Sonatas around (even a few 2010s) with that kind of miles for the same or even less money. So if you could go with a Sonata, you might check that out. The 2009 Optima is a nice car also, and will cost you much less than $13.4k.

They are saying it's their "Fair Value Pricing" and it is very competetive to the market. Should I ask for any further breakup? What are the typical heads under which should I expect them to break it up?

No it is not a certified car.
I am kind of specific about the model. What price do you think is a reasobale offer back to them? Any specific sites that I should check the price for?
Yes, it was a rental.

Check cars.com, and/or autotrader.com (available through Edmunds.com). Then print off some of the listings with better pricing and show them to the dealer.

Depending on situation, rentals are a bit harder to negotiate with if you're going through a rental car sales agency. They MIGHT take off $100, but usually are hard to the line pricing. Check out similar models with other rental sales agency websites and/or Edmunds.com or kbb.com. I think it's kbb.com (Kelly Blue Book)
#3331 of 4451 Comment Needed: 2010 GLS Sunroof package

Dealer is quoting $15791 plus Tax, Title & Plates. Price already includes Destination charges, Mat, Wind deflector & mudguard.
Also, should I get leather upholstery done on this car for another $1200?

Just purchased a 2010 Elantra SE from Herb Chambers Hyundai in Auburn Mass. Only options were floor mats, mud guards and ipod cable. MSRP was 18780.
Out the doow price was 16776.00
That price included the 1500 rebate, 6.25% sales tax, and all title/registration and dealer doc fees.
Another dealer was 200.00 cheaper, but didn't have the color I wanted. Six other dealers in the area would not match the price.
