Actually, I don't consider vibration at idle in D while standing still to be a good thing in any car. When moving, perhaps.

Jul 22, 2012 (10:40 am)
I am interested in buying a 2013 Elantra GT with A/Trans. , no style or tech. package, and mud flaps, carpeted floor mats, and cargo net.
Can anyone share what they paid for this vehicle or at least give me a idea how much under MSRP would be a great deal ?
Thank you in advance !

There is only about $1,000.00 difference between the dealers invoice and the M.S.R.P. window sticker price of the GTs.I paid $450 over invoice at my Florida dealership in Delray.My vehicle was equipped with the style package,mud flaps,floor mats, & "first aid kit-$25".Then factor in dealers fees,taxes,tag,title,ect and there you go.Just under $25,000,out the door.The decision is yours to make!You won't be disappointed.

I bought essentially the same car a few days ago (2013 GT base with wheel locks and mats, MSRP $23,315). Including all fees except TTL, I managed about $800 under MSRP which I recall was about $100 under invoice. (These cars have tiny margins, so I guess the dealer makes most of his money on the holdback and the upsell on accessories, warranties, etc.) I didn't have to try terribly hard for this and probably could have done a little better but the dealer was very straightforward in negotiations and I didn't attempt to push them to the absolute limit.
Of course, deals vary by local market, but I would think anything around invoice would be doing fine.

After I test drove one they were practically trying to throw it at me, offered me $8000 on an 84k mile 09 Elantra Touring, and knocked over $1000 off of MSRP.
Then again, this dealer actually had 6 Velosters on the lot, where some have trouble keeping one. Plus the car was white, always a deal-breaker for me.

Thanks for posting those two excellent links! Just purchased an Elantra GT with Style/Tech package combo a few days ago, and loving it! I especially liked the video, and wonder why they eliminated the completely fold down flat rear seat option, when they brought this vehicle to the US.......I love that feature in the Honda Fit, and would have been 100% sold on the GT had it come with that as well. Should I move to Europe, it will be the i30 for me!!

The back seats do fold down flat. First, you have to pull the front of the rear seat cushion forward then flip it up against the back of the font seat, then you fold the seat back down flat.

I just purchased the base unit (which actually has a bunch of goodies) with mud flaps and carpeted floor mats. I used a $500 cash bonus for veterans to bring the out the door price to $19,550. Some of the positives thus far are: the transmission is smooth, the ride is smooth, I love the bluetooth, the car looks great, and I think I got a pretty good deal.
#84 of 94 New i30 sighted... in Chicago!

I saw an odd thing the other day in suburban Chicago. I was driving to an appointment and saw what I thought was a new Elantra GT, blue, turning left ahead of me. But then I saw an "i30" badge on the hatch lid! I wonder if someone simply bought an i30 badge and stuck it on their new GT, or it was imported somehow. I am pretty sure it had IL plates, but not 100% sure.

Yep; In my area I've seen an i30 badge on an Elantra Touring and a Honda Jazz badge on a Fit.
