#6 of 4430 I think this is a great buy.....
Jul 23, 2001 (5:05 pm)
I am ABOUT to pay 12,900 for a GLS 5 speed, w/package 5, carpets, mud guards. That includes destination charge but not tax. Is it my imagination or is that a really good price?

$12,900 sounds like a solid price with Package 5. Package 5 is the ABS/Traction control package, correct? Does that price include the $500 rebate?

Yes, Steve, that does include the rebate. I'm picking up the car on Saturday..can't wait!

I've heard that a few people got the package 5 automatic for $13 flat. Your 5-speed deal sounds good....perhaps it could be better.

Make that $13K flat. Minor technicality.

Yes, perhaps I could have done better if I had been willing to take a model off the lot, but since I wanted a particular package/color (5/champagne/mud guards), and it had to be located, I was somewhat thwarted in my plan to use the "you're never gonna get rid of that thing, especially with the IIHS report!" line. I got the car yesterday, and it looks great...very happy, good value; at least I came in under invoice, according to Edmunds info.

I just bought one yesterday. 2001 Elantra GLS, 4 door, automatic, package 2, mudguards, carpets, net, silver (couldn't find grey OR black ).
In Portland, OR at Thomason Hyundai through their internet department they give some good deals. I paid $12,188 (after rebate). That's about $1000 under invoice. I had a great experience there and definately would recommend them (assuming you go thru the internet dept!) to anyone.
#13 of 4430 Elantra GT deal
Jul 30, 2001 (8:20 pm)
Just bought a GT tonight. Automatic transmission, Package 7 (Moon roof plus ABS and traction control), overpriced carpet mats (although they are nicely padded), California emissions (now also required in New York). Sticker price was $16,700 or so, I paid $15,300 (plus tax). The salesman started the negotiations at $1000 above sticker because the GT with ABS (package 7) is almost impossible to find and he said his manager makes him do that. Fortunately, I had printed out the Edmunds page and when he asked what it would take to get me to buy the car tonight I pointed to the invoice number, actually I added $69 for the mats which I did not have on my printout to round it up which was a little high but I wasn't going to begrudge him an extra $10 . Much to my surprise, they took the offer. I think it had a lot to do with my being there the next to the last day of the month and telling them I'd pay and pick it up tomorrow so it would be closed in July. Apparently the salesman's salary is based more on number of cars sold than the price he sold them for. He was bitching and moaning about them letting a hot car get away for nothing, but I tried not to shed a tear. Interestingly, they showed me their invoice price on their system (the guy who had the sheet was not in) and it claimed the price they paid was $15,700. I am not quite sure how this can be different than the Edmunds price by so much, can someone explain?
He originally thought there might be a rebate but I told him no. Maybe I should have let him think that there was! I assume someone would have corrected it if he had written it up as having one.
I ended up getting it in Cardinal Red. I really wanted Cobalt Blue but no one has seen one in these parts. The GT with package 7 is almost impossible to find so I decided to take it since the deal seemed rather good . He said if I came back next week, I would not have gotten nearly as good a deal.
Oh, I am in Westchester County, NY.

#15 of 4430 tb88 - Huh??

I got the same car you're looking at for 12,188. I know the fact that I went thru the internet was really helpful. Have you tried putting something up on Autoweb and letting them call you?
