Hyundai Elantra, Hatchback, Sedan
Jul 24, 2011 (1:01 am)
After a couple of weeks of searching for cars, I finally bought a Hyundai Elantra Limited w/ Navigation. It was the last 2011 from a dealership 1 hour away from me. Msrp. $23, 2XX, price paid $21,500, OTD $23,267. I think I got a good deal, but there was an awry feeling when I left the dealership. I put a deposit down for the car, but didn't sign any contract/paperwork saying I bought the car. The sales guy said that we will do that on Monday when I bring in the down payment for financing and sign all the paperwork then. What do you guys think? Is he pulling my tail?

Too late now, but you should have gotten some kind of document stating you put a $$$ deposit on a specific car (VIN) with the details on delivery and under what conditions your deposit is refundable.
#3827 of 4426 Bought a new 2012 Elantra GLS AT with preferred package
Jul 25, 2011 (5:23 pm)
I just bought a new 2012 Elantra GLS AT with preferred package + mat + ipod cable from Dublin Hyundai in California earlier this month.
Paid $18,300 plus tax.
I negotiated the price over email/phone and had a good buying experience.
Other dealers wouldn't match the price.
The finance manager offered me 10 year extended warranty program by "MAP" for $2500 which is way over priced. When I told them about my Hyundai protection program alternative, they quickly dropped it to $1200. Do your research first before you buy and don't be afraid to say no when pressured.
I like the car so far although the gas mileage I get is not as high as 29/40 as advertised yet..
Thanks for the posts in the forum.
#3828 of 4426 Capitol Hyundai CA finance manager lied about extended warranty program
Jul 25, 2011 (5:35 pm)
One of the finance managers at Capitol Hyundai, CA lied to me about Hyundai extended warranty. I told him I want only the Hyundai Protection Plan (HPP) offered by Hyundai over the phone. He told me that the (HPP) plan is offered by a third party called customedge and offered me a slightly lower price in order to lure me into his office. Fortunately I caught the discrepancy in the plan description after I came to his office. It turns out customedge is another after market plan. He finally showed me the real HPP with higher price. I ended up buying the HPP from Magnussens Fremont Hyundai.
How can he lie with a straight face? Be careful and stay away from Capitol Hyundai !

i hate to burst your bubble here.but after reading about the great deal you got on your 2012 elantra i decided to drive up to st.augastine from where i live in hallandale beach,fla(about a 5 hour drive)...i told them that i wanted a 2012 elantra gls with auto,and the preffered package.this car had a msrp of $18,990.00..i also told them that i read online on one of the auto forums that somebody purchased a 2012 elantra gls with auto,and the preffered package for $16,900.00 from this dealership and if i could get the same deal by paying cash..they almost laughed me out of the dealership by saying that there is no way somebody got that kind of a deal from this dealership and the best price they could give me is $18,300.00..a far cry from the $16,900.00 that i read about on this forum..needless to say i was dissapointed and it was a long drive back home without a new elantra...

Why would you drive 5 hours each way without a firm price from the start. The original poster said they achieved that price after dealing with them online. I don't know if the price was correct, but I wouldn't invest an entire day to find out.
#3833 of 4426 2012 Elantra with Preferred Package in Northern Virginia
Jul 29, 2011 (10:25 am)
I recently asked for quotes from several different dealers around this area and they all asked for around $19,900. Does this price seem ok to you all? I've seen someone buying for $18300+tax here. I asked them to lower the price a little bit but they all said it's nonnegotiable. I never knew the price for Elantra went up this much!

tell them to stick that 19,900 where the sun don't shine..there are some people who have paid $17,500.00 for this exact car and one guy who posted here said that recently he purchased a 2012 hyundai elantra gls with auto and the prefered package from hyundai of st.augustine,fla for $16,900.00..which beats 19,900.00 in my book..i guess it really depends which part of the country your in and where the supply and demand is at it's peak...
