#41 of 4451 2002 GLS
Dec 06, 2001 (12:50 pm)
I just bought an automatic 2002 GLS with package 2 (cruise control and keyless entry/alarm), mudguards, and floor mats for $11,899, not including tax and title. Color is pewter.
I had a good experience with the dealer and so far have very much enjoyed the car. Granted, it's only been a week, but so far so good.
#42 of 4451 pghguy2, did you have a trade in?

That sounds like a real good deal. did you have a trade in that may have influenced that low price?
#43 of 4451 dowbig1, no trade in

They offered me $100 for my 1986 Ford LTD, but I figured I'd take my chances selling it.
The dealership I ended up buying from ran an ad in the local paper for that price around the same time I decided on the Elantra, so it worked out well. I tried to get two dealers closer to my home to match the price in the ad, but they wouldn't go for it. The dealership I bought from offered lousy financing, but I was able to go elsewhere and get a much better rate.
All in all, I was pretty pleased with the deal. The Elantra is a great value.

Picked up a 2002 Elantra GLS, 5-Speed manual, Package 5 (ABS & TCS) for invoice price - $13,600 (US). Note that the invoice price includes the corporate advertising fees which my local dealer would not take off. Also note that this advertising fee seems to vary. The car was Dealer Exchanged from another zone where this fee was about $160 higher than what was printed on my dealer's invoices. Oh well.
I waited 10 weeks for this car to come in on dealer allocation. I was very particular on my color. Nothing.
So, I finally took the one they found at another dealer that had been sitting around for a couple months. It had more miles than I would have liked, but I didn't want to wait another month, or two, or ...
If you are in the Dayton - Columbus Ohio area, consider Jeff Wyler in Springfield. I feel they did me well. Very easy to work with.
#45 of 4451 2002 GT.....purchased 12-4-01
Dec 16, 2001 (8:03 pm)
cost us 14,990. We got it in black, 5 speed, abs and traction control, moonroof, mud guards and floormats. We love it and the haggling was good-natured. The strange thing is that these cars are so hard to find!! Dealers are all from 45-60 minutes away from here and between 3 of them, there were only 2 5 speeds available.....both red, which we didn't want. They had scores of gls's in the lots but the GTs are rare around here. The short supply made the deal even better I think. We waited a long time, hoping a black 5 spd. would show up somewhere and it finally did. We also insisted on the 2002 at this point. (dec.)

Could you tell us where you're located? Sounds like you got a great deal!
You're right about it being hard to find a 5 speed GT with ABS; there's
lots more auto GTs around. I'm looking for the exact same configuration as yours.

#48 of 4451 to esto....

Sorry esto, but we live in pennsylvania--pretty far from you. And you are right, there are far more automatics here than standards too. I have to tell you that we are so glad we got the standard trans because it is so fun to drive. Have you tried exploring the idea of an online purchase? It might be easier to get the configuration you want. Another thing I have done in the past (with a 2000 toyota camry) that worked really well was to email several dealerships in the area and ask for availability and best price. If you have actually test driven the car you want and have decided on the GT, this can work really well for you in getting a good price. Some dealers hate it and are pretty stinky about it, some are more willing and very fair. good luck, esto!

#50 of 4451 So far So good
Dec 31, 2001 (4:26 pm)
12-17 Bought an 01 Elantra GT auto, package #7 for $14,700 + $74 for reg. fee, $20 for title/licence and $10 for inspection. Unfortunately, NY 8.25% tax couldn't be haggled. Got it from a Mr.Cotter at Atlantic Auto Mall in West Islip. He gave me the price over the phone after I told him my other offers. Only complaint is 18 mpg but only 400 miles so far.
