Nov 17, 2009 (5:18 pm)
I just got my new car this past week. I guess since I'm the one who requested this forum i should be the first one posting here.
So here is what i got for my deal from Great Lakes Hyundai from Streetsboro, OH:
2010 Hyundai Elantra Touring SE A/T MSRP $19.795.00
Carpeted Floor Mats MSRP $95.00
Rear Spoiler MSRP $195.00
Bluetooth Hands-Free MSRP $325.00
Inland Freight & Handling MSRP $720.00
Total Sticker MSRP $21.130.00
Here is what i ended up paying for it:
Total Cash Price: $19386.00
This is what i paid for my car $18386.00 ( i believe its about $730 below dealer invoice) Tax and Doc fee are not included in price above.
I think i got a decent deal. Its $2744 OFF MSRP.
What ya all think?
#3 of 169 I need an opinion on this deal.

I was offered $2500 trade on my 97 Chrysler mini van with 157,000 miles.$500 cash back from Hyundai, and another $500 for using Hyundai financing.This is at 5.39% which is not bad.
This offer if on the table for any Elantra Touring.I am still waiting for an ES with the 5 speed and a beige interior.
Is this a good deal...in your opinion?

No need to talk about your trade in. If you want opinion you might want to post your car buying price, not just the rebates they gonna give you. See my own post on top of this tread to get an idea of how to post your dealer price.

I have been considering the Touring and wanted to know your feedback. I've read may positive reviews yet don't know anyone who currently owns a Hyundai. I am finding it hard to find a safe and affordable sedan or wagon and lost interest in Toyota and Honda. Thought it would be helpful to know what cars you considered before making your decision. Basically need a car with enough power to manuever canyon grades as part of daily commute and power for passing on highway as well. Really appreciate your sharing your experience with your new car!

I suggest you check out the Hyundai Elantra Touring on youtube.There are several evaluations by Edmunds and others.I test drove one and liked it a lot.As far as trusting Korean brands...my 2006.5 KIA Optima has over 34000 trouble free miles on it.Drives just like a new one still.(just my 2c worth)

I've considered Kia Soul, Scion Xb, and hybrids Toyota Prius and Honda Insight.
Test drove them all went with ET. Most comfortable ride from all of the above, i'm 6'3 and 325lbs. I also went for Kia Soul, that would of been my second option but i'm very glad i got ET instead because of the cargo space i need for my IT Consulting business. In my opinion there is nothing else out there that will match value for the money that you get with ET. Definitely test drive it to see how you like it. Engine is powerful enough that its even rated for towing, none of other cars i mentioned rated to tow anything.

I tested the Soul,the KIA Rondo and Scion Xd before settling for the Elantra.The Soul was too noisy, and the Rondo got crappy mileage.The Scion was just plain ugly in the inside.The Hybrids were out of my price range by a couple thousand so that left the SE.

are the Hyundai 5-speeds pretty smooth to shift through the gears? I'm thinking of the people buying new Kia Forte sedans and Forte Koup's in manual transmissions. They're complaining of some clutch and gearshift mismatches of some kind. It's taking some of them a while to get used to shifting in their Forte's and with a few of them they're steering clear of Kia Forte's altogether because of this problem.
How are your ET's in manual form? All right?
