I have had the same problem. I have contacted two different dealerships and both have told me that there isn't a Limited with a sun and sound package and automatic transmission anywhere in California. I have also spent hours on the internet searching inventories of dealers in a couple of other states without any luck. I agree with you about the sunroof; however, I also like the look of the black leather interior. I do want a particular color (carbon gray), but with no automatic limited with sun and sound anywhere to be found, I am thinking about possibly looking into another car. I find it extremely frustrating that the Hyundai website shows these options, yet I can't find one anywhere.

I saw an interesting comment in the current MT (comparo of Elantra, Sentra, Lancer, and Civic). They mentioned the tan interior of the Sentra and said that while it looked more interesting than the grey interiors of the other cars, it also looked dirty from almost the moment they started using it. So maybe this is something endemic to tan interiors in general? Alao may explain why Hyundai used that multi-color pattern on the Gen 3 Elantra. It was not the best-looking fabric (on the early Gen 3's, like my '01, all the color flecks made me nickname it "puke brown"), but it was durable as nails and looked brand-new when I sold the car after 5-1/2 years.

That's nice, harlqn! For a minute there I thought you had a blue vinyl dash, and I was getting excited! LOL Both of my mother's cars, a '66 Monterey and a '78 Sedan DeVille, had a blue interior. That would be a nice color interior to see again.
Thanks for posting those, and sorry, I check in once in a blue moon or else I'd have seen them earlier.

I was in my mid 20s when I had that car, backy, and I guess when you're young a red interior was exciting! And, that's better than a lemon yellow interior, right? LOL
I liked the medium blue interiors, and I haven't seen any since cars had built-in ashtrays and CB radios!
I think staying with only black or gray takes all the "personality" out of cars! I see people resorting to those ugly "flower-power" seat covers again!
Anyway, that's all off-topic, and I'll let you get back to the Elantra.

How much do you think I should buy it for? It has 6,923 miles on it.

I just had to replace the front tires on our 07 elantra se. They had less than 12,000 miles. They wore evenly so I believe the allignment is alright. What have others be getting out of the original equipment tires.

Of the OEM Michelins on my wife's 01 Elantra, one was defective and had to be replaced in the first thousand miles. After that, they were all fine and lasted until close to 60K miles. For improved traction in rain/snow, we went with Goodyear Tripletred Assurance. They have a bit more road noise than I would prefer but the grip improvement is noticeable.
