Hyundai Elantra Touring Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • My dealer posts pics of all their cars, and they have one in the Regatta Blue at 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?
  • hwyhobohwyhobo Posts: 263
    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

    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.

    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.
  • 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: 2,626
    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: 2,626
    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.
