He, he.....it reads like you are playing the flute to a poisonous snake that will pop out of a wicker basket and hand you the keys. As one who keeps his cars forever (or until GM ruins it due to incompetant workmanship), I would be careful of the slithering object which appears before your eyes. Best of luck.

I also want to go to this dealership because they were the first place I went to when buying my elantra. I was interested in buying but in no way needed to buy a car at the time. I was interested in a red elantra. A salesman walked up to me asked to help and I told him what I was looking for and he said that car was the holy grail of cars. He was not interested in giving me a quote on my trade in and was not interested in sitting down and trying to make a deal. I went to their sister dealership a few miles away and they wrote up a deal on a gls but again were not really going after my biz the car never became avalable from them. A couple months later I saw a red limited pop up on inventory at ganley and took a ride out their. The car was ordered for a customer months ago but when it came in the loan would not go through. I scooped it up and they gave me a pretty good deal. At the time all they could do was hide any deal through your trade in because hyundai was telling dealers to hold top msrp. I just would love to see that salesman again but doubt he is still in the biz. I keep cars a long time also. I have a 2001 elantra, that is why the low mileage on the 2012. Most of that was 2 vacation trips to canada. Also have a 2009 kia spectra I picked up new out the door for 12k. Could not pass up the price. It was to replace the 2001 elantra but the car just keeps running and running without putting any money in it.

Well I am done with checking out the offer. Basically everything on the card I got was just ignored as I thought. But they did offer me 19k on my trade. But still wanted me to hand over 4k to get a fully loaded coup which was not going to happen. It was funny because I was in a good mood, not in a hurry and having fun dealing with the various attempts to get me to deal in fuzzy math methods that tried to hide the fact that I was paying 4k to make the trade. This one guy kept saying over and over he could lower my payments and make the deal. Well I am 12 months ahead on payments so yes, lowerering my payments and going back to 60 payments was easy to do if I was a moron. The se coup fully loaded is only 21k while my limited sedan is 24k. The coup does offer keyless entry or start, no nav, no rear view camera and no heated leather seats. Not offered at all in a coup. I never did find out where the extra 2k was going. 19k trade 21k msrp why 4k? Their destination charge was only 250 and they kept saying that also. Now I did not sit down in detail because I finnally ended it by saying my absolute top end on trading to a coup was giving them under a thousand dollars. Plus they would have had to throw in clear coat. Also that dealer gives double warrenty on every car. 10/20. Plus when I parked my car next to a coup I like the sedan better. To me that car has every line just perfect. Plus I have matching painted body side mouldings that are red and black. Really stand out nice. I figure now since I am definitly keeping the car long term now I look around at adding some mods.
#4315 of 4426 Price Comparison

I have been shopping around and so far got offered the following deals:
1. 2013 Elantra A/T with some extras
Quoted price: 17,396
2. 2013 Elantra A/T with preferred package
Quoted price: 18,031
3. 2013 Elantra GT A/T
Quotes price: 18,964
According to what I see on here, I think these are all pretty good deals. I just wonder if I can get a better deal if I wait until their Labor Day sale. Does Hyundai usually have decent sales that weekend or am I wasting my time by waiting? Also, how much of the norm is it to negotiate with the internet sales person?
Thanks in advance!

In Kansas City, Missouri, I just paid for a A/T 2011 Elantra GLS Desert Metallic Bronze with 19,900 miles on it for 15,199.95 from a Honda dealership. No trade in. It had a pristine carfax as well. No scatches or dings, just small stain on front passenger seat, getting seat covers. It was originally listed 16,975.00. They are very motivated to move cars this time of year. I also got 60 month financing at 1.49% with penfed.org. I got a good deal I think. Very happy with my purchase.

Thanks for this information! I have been scouring this list, looking for a post such as this to help. Do you mind if I ask if your GLS had the preferred package? I assume the 15,199.95 is before TTL?
I will be buying one in November (paying cash, so I think I can push them with the "instant sale" guideline since it's an off-peak buying time). I would prefer to get a certified pre-owned 2011 or 2012 hyundai elantra GLS, but due to their popularity and high resale value I haven't found anything that I would consider paying.
Most C.P.O. 2011 elantra GLS I see are ~15,500, but I've gotten quotes for ~17,400 for brand new 2013 elantra GLS. These are of course before TTL. I'm all for saving money, but less than $2K in savings for a 2 year old car with 30K miles just doesn't seem like a good deal on my end.
Anyone have any suggestions? I am planning on negotiating end of November and paying cash. Is it completely unreasonable for me to set a goal of $13,500 + TTL for a CPO 2011 elantra GLS or $16,500 + TTL for a 2013 elantra GLS?

It does not have preferred package and its before TTL. Liked my price cause of low miles on it. Barely broken in. I'm sure if you get one with 30,000+ miles on it then you could negotiate down even more from my $15,199. They laughed at my original offer of 14,750. I think it would be tough to get it down to 13,500. If you think you can get a 2013 at $16,500 then I would go with that. Good luck!

What is the September residual and money factor for a 2012 Elantra GLS?
I'm interested in a 15k per year 24 month and 36 month lease in california.
Also what is the minimum credit score for the top tier lease rates?

Thanks for the reply, I have a feeling you and I are very like minded. I also look for low-mileage used vehicles, as I believe it normally represents a good value but with the used car market still inflated coupled with the elantra's popularity there isn't much discount for a used one (2011 or newer).
I wish you the best on your car puchase!
