  • My dealer posts pics of all their cars, and they have one in the Regatta Blue at http://www.cammisahyundai.com/VehicleDetails/769307273. Currently they don't have Atlantic Blue or Titanium. They do also have a 2011 in Carbon Gray, contrary to what you heard.
  • That's an excellent price. Where did you get it from?

    Where are you located? Is there no sales tax in your area?
  • What was your price before tx/lic/doc. And, that was a 2010 Elantra Touring or a 2011 ? And, was that auto trans. ?
  • Absolute Hyundai, Mesquite, TX - suburb of Dallas
  • Absolute Hyundai, Mesquite, TX - suburb of Dallas. Sales Tax is .0625. See my reply to post #128 for breakdown.
  • My subject line had the car's spec: 2010 Automatic GLS PP#2
    Also, it's Polar White with beige interior

    Breakdown:
    Price of vehicle $16490.69
    Rebate $ 1000.00
    Tax $ 968.17
    Vehicle Inventory Tax $ 36.59
    Tag $ 75.80
    Title & Inspection $ 61.75
    --------------------------------------------------
    OTD $16633.00
  • 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.

    Well, I have found out and answered in this thread:

    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.
    :confuse:
  • That is a rip-off! I paid 15,952 for my 2010 GLS with the PP#2 Auto in May with the 1000 dollar rebate applied. I know for a fact you can get them cheaper now.
    That is pretty outrageous that they are starting that high, look elsewhere.

    They are rip-offs...
  • Is 13,995 + ttl a good price for a new 2010 ET GLS, MT with added door and fender guards, pin striping and nitrogen inflated tires?
  • hwyhobohwyhobo Posts: 263
    Nitrogen inflated tires? :surprise:
  • sandman_6472sandman_6472 Coral Springs, FLPosts: 2,694
    Totally unnecessary as regular is made up of almost 90% nitrogen. We got it free awhile back and honestly, felt no difference & the tires lost it just like having free regular air. Skip it and save the $!

  • Thanks,
    So what do you think about the overall price offer?
  • sandman_6472sandman_6472 Coral Springs, FLPosts: 2,694
    Sounds like a great price, and just remember, the new 2011 version is due out soon. So if you're intent on getting a 2010 model and there is sufficient inventory in color, etc., I'd go for it. Good luck!

  • I read a review of the 2011 model and there are very minimal changes. Unless there is a concern that getting the 2010 will reduce the resale value when you sell it, I'd say go for it.
  • MSRP on the car is $18,125 the sale price on it is $15,125 plus t.t.l. This includes the $1,000 rebate and the $500 finance bonus. I did 60 month term at $298 with 3.9% financing and some change for 60 months with zero out of pocket. This was without the trade as well. With my trade ($600) and gap insurance I'm paying 290.44 for 60 months.

    Deal or no Deal?

    The car is a new 2010 Vivid Blue/Black fabric 2010 Elantra Touring GLS with an automatic transmission. The car has carpeted floor mats and mud guards.
  • maxx4memaxx4me Posts: 1,340
    So you are saying the car is really $16,625+ttl for a GLS that does NOT have the Preferred Package #2, correct or $1,500 off of MSRP?
  • they took 1500 off MSRP as a sale price and no it doesn't have the preferred package. Just mud guards and floor mats. Then they took an additional 1500 in rebates off the cost. So 3,000 less than MSRP.

    I paid $18,372 out the door for my GLS with Preferred Package #2, bluetooth and floor mats. It seems I paid around $900 more than everyone else at the time. So if I could have lived without the color I wanted and not gotten the car with bluetooth, I could have bargained for about $17,472. If they are wanting $15,100 + about $500 ttl, you are at $15,600. That sounds like a good deal to me. My only caution would be on getting a car these days without bluetooth since the hands free law will eventually cover all 50 states. I got exactly the car I wanted and will very likely get the 2012 HET when it comes out. I think that highly of the car, and I know you will too. Good luck and happy T-day.
  • Thanks! Yeah this car was for my wife. I can't wait to see the 2012 ET after seeing the new redesign of the Hyundai Elantra. I'll probably get a stick shift version of it when it releases. Glad you're happy with yours. We are too!
  • Just bought a 2011Elantra Touring SE with manual trans. I paid $16,600 plus a trade of my 2000 Mazda Millenia with 150K miles. I think the trade amounted to about $2K so the cost of the car was about $18,600. It came w/the Bluetooth (a great option) plus the cargo net, iPod cable and carpeted mats. MSRP was $20,720 and had a $500 cash back offer, so the list price could be considered as $20,220. I think it's easier to negotiate on a manual transmission model.

    We just bought a new 2011 Touring mainly for my wife to drive. I did a LOT of research and test drove a LOT of cars before buying. I looked at the Scion xB, Toyota Matrix, Toyota Prius, Honda Insight, Mazda 5, Golf, and Chevy Cruze. It was exhausting.

    I read good things about the German-designed i30 (Touring in the US), the great H warranty and reasonable price. I admit I've had a lifelong prejudice against H cars (I remember the Excel! Scorpios never forget!) But I test drove the Touring because it seemed to have everything we needed. After test driving and liking the European-style ride, I used TrueCar.com for a quote and got two quotes from VA dealers (Gateway & Pohanka). Pohanka's was lower but Gateway is nearby and their Internet salesperson quickly agreed to match Pohanka's. We got a new '11 Touring GLS, A/T, PEP #2, mats, iPod cable and rear bumper protector for $16,560 including delivery, dealer prep & rebates. This is at least a couple of thousand below invoice. We are extremely happy with the car, the dealer, the warranty and the no-BS purchasing experience. No more overpriced Hondas for me. :D
  • Just bought a 2011 Elantra Touring SE with auto trans. I paid $20,448 (no trade) OTD. It came with a cargo net, cargo tray, iPod cable, wheel locks and carpeted mats. There was a $500 cash back offer and I paid 7% sales tax in DeKalb County, GA as part of the price above. It is dark gray exterior. Could of had vivid blue for cheaper, but could not look at that for 5+ years.
  • bear7bear7 Posts: 10
    Yikes! 7% seems high for a sales tax. In Virginia we pay 3% on cars and 5% on everything else. Yeah, Hyundai is doing $500 cash back on 2011s and $1,000 cash back on 2010s. But we wanted a "new, new" car! SE must be nice..leather, etc. I personally have to pay for, insure, maintain, and gas 4 cars for my family (4 adults) so I try to economize as much as I can. Damn, how I wish I lived in a U.S. or European city on a subway or tram line! I'm a new Hyundai owner and so far, so good!
