Sounds like I didn't get as good of a deal as many of you, but I just bought a 2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS automatic (no preferred package) with the auto-dimming mirror, mats, and iPod adapter plus others I don't remember off the top of my head.
Sale Price: $18,100
(I had a cheapo trade-in that I was lucky to get $525 for)
Documentary fee: $75
State and Local Taxes (MN): $1,162.38
Total License and Fees: $539.50
Delivered Price (OTD): $19,351.88
Had I not had the trade-in, it would have been close to 20K.
Sounds like many of you got the preferred package included on a price like this. I thought I was still getting a good deal since many of the websites said I was still under the invoice price. Bummer.

hi crafty, i have to agree with you here in that you didn't get a very good deal at all.my girlfriend down here in hollywood florida just purchased a few weeks ago a 2012 elantra gls with the prefered package for $17,600.00..no trade-in involved plus TTT....i guess it might depend on what area of the country you live in to get the best deals and also where supply and demand are the highest.

Well, I guess at this point the car isn't in yet and I've only given them a deposit. I'm still going to do some searching to see if I can find a better deal somewhere else then. I guess I should be grateful I didn't drive the car home yesterday!
Thanks for the info steven39.

I am also looking for GLS with preferred package and got similar quote from one of the dealer today in Phoenix. If we go together and buy 2 cars, will they bulge and give better pricing? If it is possible do me offline ping and we can talk about it

Well, doing a bit of research helped a bit. My car is the 2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS with Automatic transmission without the preferred package, but includes the floor mats, cargo net, auto-dimming mirror, iPod cable , and rear bumper protector.
Here is what the new info should be like when I sign papers again and I didn't qualify for any of the incentives going on right now (military and graduation):
Sale Price: $17,919
Documentary fee: $75
State and Local Taxes (MN): $1,150.41
Total License and Fees: $533.94
Delivered Price (OTD): $19,153.35
I ended up saving about $200 which is better than nothing and is fine by me. I really don't understand how people are getting better deals than this. Maybe things are different here in MN than in Florida or Virginia, but this was as good as it got where I'm at. I'm happy for those of you who got a better deal. I'm dumbfounded, but extremely happy that you found them.
Hopefully this will help someone out with their pricing. Good luck!

>>>I really don't understand how people are getting better deals than this.
Different dealer, different levels of greed. I mentioned in one of my earlier posts that one dealer near me is adding $800 dealer markup because the car is so hot. But, I don't know if people are actually paying it or if the dealer is using it to give customers the illusion that they're getting a good deal by paying retail. I know I wouldn't pay it.

in 1986 i had one of the first hyundai exel cars that was sold in this country when i lived in california at the time.at that time they couldn't give hyundai cars away to anybody thats how bad they were.now we are talking about adding 800 bucks to the price of a hyundai car because it is a hot seller.25 years ago i would have laughed in your face about this.i guess hyundai has come a long way since those early days and you have to give them credit.

Bought my wife a 2012 Elantra GLS in automatic. I live in BC, Canada. I Got it at $20,500 + DD + Levies + taxes. I got the first service thrown in as well for a really hassle free negotiation. I know there isn't a ton of room for movement from what I've read and what my brother in law paid on his. She wanted white so she has to wait a few weeks but other then that was pretty damm painless as far as car sales go.
I was actually looking at a Matrix 1-2 years old but with what people want for them and the interest rates you can get right I would have been crazy to go used.
