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!

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.

Motozuma dot com . You can open an account there. Folks can 'dontate' money to help you buy a car. Also, some manufacturers have a program to match your deposts up to $500. I got that back in October when I bought my Elantra GLS. I deposited $20 to open the account, $480 a month later then bought the Elantra. Hyundai matched that $500 so it was like getting a $500 rebate. The account has to be open for 30 days to get the match, but you don't have to make the full deposit until a few days before you purchase. Check it out... I used it without problem at my Hyundai Dealer in Memphis.
Current Motozuma web page shows Hyundai $500 match until 1/2/2013. Don't know if any other mfg is doing this.

ironically i ended up not getting the Accent SE. Terrible communication from the dealer, car was delayed several weeks, then they sent it to the wrong dealership and they put it up for sale.
I ended up with a 2012 VW Jetta Diesel with manual transmission. Ended up getting 17300 for the 2011 Elantra Limited with 18K miles.
So I guess in the end you were right, moved forwards and not backwards. Cost more but I love driving it a lot more.

while i was getting my elantra's oil changed a few weeks ago i was walking around the lot looking at the cars..i seen a 2012 accent with the premium package in mocha bronze color which looked really nice.msrp was $17,700.00 which is not a bad deal considering the options that it came with..
