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.
#4194 of 4430 2012 Hyundai Elantra GLS automatic
Mar 10, 2012 (3:45 pm)
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..
#4201 of 4430 Wait till the end of the month
Apr 04, 2012 (5:23 pm)
I think I did pretty good on the price of my 2012 elantra.i emailed the dealership and negotiated the price.it was listed at 19250. The car was sky blue.i asked for lowest price and said I was in contact with other dealerships.( wich I was not). After several emails I was quoted a price of 18350. The next day I called the salesman and they had sold the car.he tried to sell me other cars with less options but I said no.i told him I wanted an elantra with rims,not hubs, and fog lights,in sky blue.my next choice was silver then maybe black.he said he had none and tried to sell me cars with less options and I said I'll just wait till more come in.it was march 30th.i got a call saying he somehow found in the back of the lot a black gls with preferred package,rims,cargo liner,fog lights,mud guards,for the 18350. I said I really wanted blue but I'll think about it.i got a call 5 minutes later with a price of 18150.i jumped on it.its a great car and I'm happy with the price.they are selling fast but if you wait till the end of the month you'll get the best deal.i signed the papers on April 1 st and they asked to write march 31 st on the check.the dealers have incentives to sell a certain amount of cars in a month and are eager to sell even if they don't make as much to meet their numbers.
