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 4423 Comment Needed: 2010 GLS Sunroof package
Apr 26, 2010 (7:24 pm)
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.
#3333 of 4423 Hoping to purchase a 2010 Elantra

As a new arrival, the archive of posts on this board has been very helpful. I am planning on buying my first elantra - leaning towards a 2010 GLS sunroof package with ipod cable and mudguards. Was not planning on any add ins, but some online reviews highly recommend the sunroof. Color will likely be black. Truecar.com calculates an average price of $15.8k (plus TTL) with these features. Anyone think I can do better? Also, is it better to line up financing in advance? Would much rather handle that through the dealer unless there are clear advantages.

#3335 of 4423 2010 GLS pricing
May 16, 2010 (7:33 pm)
I'm in Massachusetts, collecting dealers' prices for a 2010 Elantra GLS - automatic but otherwise without any special options. (I do, however, want a car manufactured after 12/09 because Hyundai redesigned it then to improve side-impact safety.) Based on what I've seen on the web, a dealer should be able to make a profit selling me the car for $14,500 (including all fees) + tax and title. Best price I've been able to get by phone or e-mail is $14.7K but the dealer has been saying for a week and a half that he's waiting for the newer cars. Other counteroffers start at $15K and go up from there. Any sense of whether these guys would meet my price if I showed up with a checkbook?
