The dealer gave a paper which has the finance installment options... it said Market value $25,414. Not sure if it is the same as MSRP

hi folks,my elderly aunt wanted me to post this messege about her recent car purchasing experience.i went with her today to look at some new cars she was interested in.her 1999 honda accord turned in it's notice and she decided to trade it in.she narrowed down her choices between the 2013 chevy cruze and the 2013 hyundai elantra due to better gas mpg..anyway,we got lucky today since the hyundai dealership and chevy dealership are across the street from each other which made comparing the 2 cars a little easier.first up was the 2013 chevy cruze LS with auto tranny.msrp was $19,080.00..she didn't test drive the car but wanted to see the elantra across the street to see how it compared with the cruze..this is where the comparisons ended.we looked at a 2013 hyundai elantra gls with the preffered package which had a msrp of $19,685.00....it's very hard to believe that only 600 dollars seperated both these cars and yet the elantra offered a ton more features for the money...where to start,warranty,room,power,cruise control,4-wheel disk brakes,heated front seats,compass rear-view mirror,illuminated vanity mirrors,as well as ignition,front fog lights,better mpg....this was a no-brainer for my aunt and she purchased the elantra and is thrilled with it.we both sat in the cruze and it felt cheap and inferior to the elantra.

I'm looking to buy the Elantra coupe 2013 SE model. I am in Ontario Canada where taxes are 13% and my finance rate for 84 months is 0.9%.
I was wondering if someone can tell me what I should be paying for this car.

Things I declined to buy from Dealership:
1. 10-yr/100k Extended Warranty - Price $2200 w/ a $100 deductible; although I was able to get the price down to $1650. Car comes w/ 5yr/60k New Vehicle Warranty, and you can always purchase an extended warranty as you get close the end of the New Vehicle Warranty - which really only provides an addition 5yrs/40K miles of extended coverage. (I had purchased one w/ my '06 Civic for $1695, zero deductible, 8yr/120K mile - they couldn't offer one w/out a deductible and gave me some b/s line about all deductibles need to be equal for all warranties.) Besides their aren't many people who blow 60k miles in 5 yrs, or still have the car after 5 yrs. So, I'll cross this bridge when I get to it and not before - I don't want to pay for something I may never use.
2. Gap Insurance Coverage: Gap insurance is a great coverage to have, but buy it through your insurance company, versus buying it through the dealership. Ex: Dealership was going to charge me $800 for gap coverage, which lasts the full term of the loan. My insurance carrier added it for an additional $9.00/6 months coverage. Note* Gap Insurance is really only needed the first 2-3yrs of the loan term, as the first 2 years of car payments the majority of which is applied to the loan's interest, and less is applied to the principal balance - which would be your payoff amount should your car get totalled. Gap coverage makes up the difference between what your car's assessed value at the time of the accident vs. what your loan balance - thus not leaving you with a balance to pay for a car you no longer own, or have to fold into your new replacement car loan. So, to complete my example above, it will only cost me an additional $45 for 2.5 years of gap coverage, versus the $800 the dealership attempted to sell me.
3. Paint and Under Carriage Sealant - Declined: I don't live in South Dakota, where this product application would be a must to prevent/minimize corrosion and extend the life of a vehicle. I live in California, known for its mild climate. Here my car, though not garaged, but carported, is washed and detailed weekly, and waxed monthly. Yes, I've been told that I'm a bit OCD about the care of my vehicles, but then again, that's why I've always received top value when I decide to sell.
I realize that I wasn't too popular with the Finance representative I worked with in the closing of my purchase. One must realize the reasons why the dealerships attempt to sell you these options, is to pad the bottom-line. Just know that you're in charge, that you are not obligated to buy any features, services, or options you don't want or need. Don't allow any member of the dealership to intimidate or coerce into do anything you don't want - and feel free to walk away at anytime. Remember, they are there to be of service to you, and while yes they want to sell you as many features, options, and add-ons - you can say always say "no thank-you".
I hope my "two-cents" was beneficial and feel free to ask questions or offer comments.

After getting nowhere from the Michigan Hyundai Dealers who were not willing to budge from MSRP, I went and bought the vehicle I wanted exactly in Chicago. The salespersons name was STEVE WADE (Wade is not his last name but his nickname).
STEVE is knowledgeable, and a MAN OF INTEGRITY, who treated me like family.
The dealership he works at is KNAUZ - HYUNDAI, Lake Bluff, Illinois.
This was the best new car purchase that I personally have ever had !
