#4276 of 4430 Got One; 2013 Hyundai Elantra w Pref Pkg
Jun 24, 2012 (7:44 am)
I had to go out of my area about 120miles to find my car. The local dealers either did not want to deal much lower than the sticker price, or had limited stock and/or choices. It was worth it. Brought home a new 2013 Elantra with Pref Pkg, pluc cargo net, tray, mats and ipod cable for $18,200 plus TTT. Final out the pocket price including taxes/licenses, etc $19,924.
It really helped that I started with a good quote from one dealer and then shopped around. It took some patience and finding a dealership who could beat the quote, even if I had to go outside my area to deal. I also used truecar dot com to see where others were buying the car, a great site.
So far...I love my Elantra!

sounds like you got a pretty good deal.your price falls in where others have paid also.i purchased the same car about a month ago.price was $18,163.00plus TTT...however like yourself i had to travel about 100 miles from where i live to get the color i wanted which is desert bronze metallic.for some reason,this is a hard color to get and not many dealers have it on the lot.out of maybe 15 elantras any one dealer may have on the lot only 1 would be in the desert bronze color.i live in hallandale beach,florida and had to go to naples on the west coast to get the car but it was worth it because this car looks so good in the desert bronze color and i get many compliments on it from people.

King in Deerfield beach, but that was 2 years ago and they (dealership and manufacturer) were trying to move 2010 elantras to make room for the 2011 remodeled elantras.

Update from original posts:
Emailed the various Hyundai dealers in Portland area asking for a quote on the specific Elantra I mentioned earlier. The Limited is.. well.. very limited around here right now.
Made an appointment to go drive a car at Larry Miller Hyundai in Hillsboro. We had discussed price and the options that were on that specific car in advance. Even had them take, and send to us, a picture of the specific car on the lot before we left. Drove almost an hour. They couldn't find the keys. Or the car. After some stalling management finally admitted it had been picked up shortly before we arrived- it had been sold to another dealer the week before. Original contact claimed to have no knowledge of it. We were pretty pissed.
They had no more Limiteds on their lot to drive and they were very perplexed we wouldn't "just test drive a GLS- it's the exact same car but for 3" in the wheelbase. I told them we had come to test drive, and likely, purchase the specific model we had discussed. They half-heartedly searched online through inventory but once I told them we didn't want to drive one of the GLS's (they had about 20 on the lot) they had ZERO interest in our business.
With 5-6 salespeople standing around, and zero customers on the lot, we left Larry Miller Hyundai vowing to share this terrible experience with as many people as we can. We received no follow up email or call. The car apparently sells itself without any need for customer service or respect for the buyer.
I have since contacted another dealer and am hoping for a better experience when the car we are looking for arrives from Hyundai and we drive it.

Good thing you made a fast retreat from that dealership. They know absolutely nothing about the cars they sell. Or don't mind lying through their teeth. Either way, not someone to do business with.
#4283 of 4430 Up-Front Hyundai Dealer in NE Florida
Jul 04, 2012 (10:50 am)
I recently purchased my 2013 from Hyundai of St. Augustine (FL).
I have purchased many new cars over the span of my lifetime and I believe this is the most up-front dealership I have ever dealt with, at least from my experience.
I think last year they were rated the #1 Hyundai Dealership in America.
They automatically sell the new Hyundai's for 4-5% below the MSRP on the sticker and prices shown on the internet.
On the lot they show actual MSRP then show what they call an "Up-Front" price reflecting 4-5% off MSRP. They show the same prices on their web page but call the reduced price an "Internet Price".
There is not much wiggle room from the discounted price but some additional savings can possibly be achieved.
The 2 other Hyundai Dealers I looked at were not nearly as Up-Front and acted like a couple hundred bucks off MSRP was all that could be had.
The Hyundai of St. Augustine web site was by far the best I have seen regarding actual MSRP and potential discount off MSRP and for features and options, what you see on the web page is exactly what is on the lot. The photo is a stock photo but everything else is right as rain.
Some of the other Hyundai Dealer web sites I have looked at are very misleading and some don't even show MSRP or an complete list of options.
#4284 of 4430 Recent 2013 Hyundai Elantra Purchase
Jul 09, 2012 (7:49 am)
I referenced this forum a lot when researching a good price for a Hyundai Elantra and I wanted to pass along my recent purchasing experience. I purchased the car in NJ on July 4th. I got the 2013 Hyundai Elantra with the preferred package. It was Sky Blue Metallic color and came with 4 manufacturer add-ons: carpeted mats, iPod cable, mud guards, & cargo net. The MSRP was 19,485. I was able to negotiate it down to 17,250, plus TTT....the OTD price was $19,250.
