Let me add that I did not negotiate. I emailed an offer for $16633 OTD. One dealership counteroffered at a higher price. My second dealer, Absolute Hyundai, agreed to meet it. Absolute chose how to break out the subtotals, which I copied here from the final invoice. We spent two hours at the dealership kicking tires, test driving, and completing the paperwork; we got no hassles.

I have PP#2 with auto. I like the telescoping steering, but as I am tall, I don't find the HET very compfy on the gas pedal. I need another 2 inches of travel in the seat rail. Again, since I am not the primary driver, I don't mind. It is a shame that H did not allow the seat to go back further, and allow you manual owners a bit more creature comforts.

I guess being 5-11 and lightweight makes the ET just right for me. I took it into the high sierras for my annual rock climbing trip, and the tight curves with no one around was fantastic, especially using the manual transmission. I wish it had a little more power for coming out of the tight curves but I'll take the great mileage instead.
My 2010 ET SE manual has been great on the highway, I actually can drive long distances without getting lower back fatigue like my old 94 4-runner. The only thing is that if I put my seat back too far, I can't depress the clutch all the way to the floor, but it's just a matter of finding my seat position again.

I am 5'10" with long legs and I have a 2010 GLS manual trans which does not have the telescoping wheel. When I adjust the seat for the proper distance from the wheel, the seat bottom is too close so my thighs to not come in contact with the seat bottom hense, there is no thigh support, which is very uncomfortable after just a short drive. What I did was remove the two front seat bolts and placed a shime under the seat frame which, when longer bolts a reinstalled, lifts the front of the seat up about 1.5 inches. This perfect for me because my thighs are supported by the seat all the way to the end of the cushion. THIS GREATLY IMPROVES THE COMFORT OF THE SEAT!!! This should work well for anyone who has no thigh support

2010 Elantra Touring GLS, PP#2, everything but bluetooth and sunroof. They are asking $18,000 (including 1k rebate). This is in Zip code 65201. Am I being taken for a ride here? That seems mighty high for a 2010 model with 2011's lining the lot.
