#51 of 169 Advice from recent buyers
Mar 16, 2010 (12:08 pm)
I just began to look into 2010 Hyundai Elantra touring SE with Auto. No option ordered as it is well equipped. The MSRP for the car is $20,610
I received an offer for the above model with a out of door price of $18,651 all inclusive of all fees and tax (amounting to about $1200 in our state. This is pretty in line with Edmond TMV price. Do you think this is an acceptable deal or should I working with other dealers for a better price? Thanks in advance for sharing your thoughts based on your experience. Much appreciated.

Just want to share with those interested in touring SE with auto.
Paid $18,000 including Blue tooth and floor mats. This is $2,935 below MSRP and $2,000 below invoice, although one needs to remember this price has included the $1,000 incentive given to buyers until the end of this month.
Very happy with the price of a car so well equipped. Hyundai will challenge Honda and Toyota in the lower segment of the car market for sure! At this price, the somewhat louder road noise, simply adequate engine power and softer steering become tolerable.

Did the $18k include all tax, license, registration, etc? What was your actual sales price? Sounds like you got yourself a fantastic deal!

The out of door price was $19,628 including tax, license, doc fees and plate. I think it was a great deal. This is the time to deal, if you are interested in buying a car, in fact any car. Dealers want to meet not just the monthly quota, but the quarterly one to get bonus from the manufacturer. Hyundai happens to be a bargain for its value to begin with. This additional push for sales only benefits the customers more.
#55 of 169 Probably paid more than I should have for a 2010.

I was blown away by the features of the vehicle - may have been a bit star-struck. Of course I traded a 98 Ford Escort... with 228,000 miles that they gave me $1200 - that would be $1000 over blue book.... I think my rebate was $1000. I mentioned to the salesman that I really wanted a manual transmition, got a call the next Friday that a manual they weren't expecting showed up, signed up on contingency of a test drive after P&P. I did miss one thing - cruise control. It's included with the automatic transmition. Since the salesman said it had one, the dealer split the cost of an after market cruise. I paid $15,500. There was some discussion earlier about "feeling a lincoln penny". It is supposed to be a sporty car & you should feel the road. I think the ride is fine. I've driven a lot worse.

Picked up a 2010 ET SE with a 5spd. Could find several auto's, but I guess I am just a bit old school when it comes to something sporty. Got the black pearl with the two tone saddle interior, spoiler, and mats. I will have to look up the final out the door, but I got it 2/27, and the $1500 rebate ended the next day. Basically it was invoice +250, less the rebate and a solid trade value on the exchange. It was one of two sticks in the state at the time. One black, one white.
Love the car. It does ride a little firm, but in yesterdays 25mph crosswinds it was rock solid. And I love the sound of that little 2.0L with a 5spd. The car is not what I would ever call fast, but it is certainly quick, and handles like it's on rails.
lots o' fun!
#57 of 169 Hyundai financing
Apr 04, 2010 (2:12 pm)
I'm thinking of getting a H Elantra Touring. I believe H is offering $1,000 cash back if you also get their financing (3.9% for 60 months).
1. having never considered buying a H vehicle before. Does H normally have cash back programs?
2. has anyone financed a vehicle through H before?
3. if so, can the loan be paid off early without penalties?

1. Yes, they seem to have them pretty regularly.
2. Not me.
3. Yes, they can.
But I think you are probably confused because I'm fairly sure that the cash back you get for financing ($1000 in my area) is the same amount you get for paying cash. You do not get both. So there's really no advantage to financing and then paying it off, unless you are seeing some offer in your area that is not in mine.
Here is what I see for my area:
•$1,000 customer cash back (4/1/2010 - 4/30/2010)
•Lease starting at $239/month for 24 months (4/1/2010 - 4/30/2010)
•Special APR Financing. As low as 3.9% APR for 60 mos, 4.9% for 72 mos PLUS $1,000 Bonus Cash (4/1/2010 - 4/30/2010)
#59 of 169 Great deal on new 2010 GLS 4 spd auto with popular package
Apr 20, 2010 (11:02 am)
I bought mine yesterday for 15,700 after the 1000 rebate. This ended up at 16,970 with tag, title, tax, and fees. For anybody looking for a great internet price look at Murdock Hyundai near Salt lake City. I used their internet price as a haggling point and I was in and out under 1 hour at my local delearship.
#60 of 169 2010 Elantra Touring SE Automatic
May 03, 2010 (6:07 pm)
It was a bit of a fiasco getting one of these things in automatic transmission. I had initially requested a GLS with Auto and the Popular Equipment Package - but that package apparently isn't offered any more. (I didn't find this out until I drove 50 miles to the dealer, where they tried to convince me to just pay the same price for the base model WITHOUT the Pop. Equipment Package. NO thanks!)
Ultimately I had them ship a SE with Auto from out of town. I paid $17,145 plus TTL. Despite feeling jerked around by the dealer, I'm VERY happy with the car.
