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?

I didn't even bargain. Price was advertised on their website.I figured it was good enough price already. I went and got it.
They even gave me what i wanted for my trade in and no one else would.
You just need to know when to walk out. I guarantee you that if you didn't get what you want today and walked out, they will call you next day and offer you better deal.

I don't know when to walk out my friend.I thought my price was OK,even great,but that was until I saw your car and it's cost.
Taking away the trade in,the best I could get was invoice.I am better off getting the $2500 for my old car.

$1000 rebate is still good. If you can get invoice and apply rebate to that i say go for it. Drive to multiple dealers. The bigger dealer the better. As they explained to me, there are able to sell below invoice because even though they wont make much on this one single sale, they will meet their selling volume quotes. The more cars they sell, more kickbacks from Hyundai to them.

Actually the rebate on 2010s is $500.Then there is another $500 if you finance it through Hyundai.
Another problem that I am having is finding the car I want.A white 2010 ET SE with manual, and with beige interior.Lots of white GLS around but SEs with beige interior are as rare as hens teeth.

Yes, two $500 rebates makes it $1000 just like i mentioned.
I also wanted specific features, color , etc.
Car i got was the only one out there in the entire OH and PA states.
You will get what you want, just keep looking for it.
