  • This offer look very good.
    Did you buy it?

    Are you sure that it is 2010 Elantra? I can understand that they can give 2009 at this price. I am surprised that they are giving 2010 elantra.

    Can you give details of the dealer?
  • Looks like a great deal. Was a this Manual or automatic transmission?
    thanks
  • Sachin, was it for manual or automatic?
    thanks
  • aksebnaksebn Posts: 15
    automatic. so far i am very happy with the car.

    Just for my own information - when you say you got a great deal on a new Elentra, did you buy a 2009 or a 2010? Thanks for the feedback.
  • aksebnaksebn Posts: 15
    2009 they wouldnt deal much on the 2010 said there was not very little rebate money.
  • tommieztommiez Posts: 11
    Yes, I agree - that is a good deal even for a 2009. The only problem about the 2009's is that they're very scarce and difficult to find since the Clunker program and if you want a certain color and trim - it's almost impossible. Maybe Hyundai will extend the $2000 rebates to the 2010 in the spring when it becomes clear to them that in this economy you need incentives..
  • I pulled trigger last night, 4252 below invoice ( including all rebates), GLS + popular package + blue tooth + floor mats , negotiating price with internet department of towne hyundai at nj, walked in and closed the deal within 1 hr, very pleasant experience. Sean is the salesman, very nice. I believe I got a decent deal, what do you guys think?
  • just to clarify, i did not buy the car, as I did not like it. Steering wheel is quite hard even @ 35mph! inside city. Not used to it. Drive is quite un-enjoyable (personal opinion only)

    But anyways, the dealer almost killed himself to sell the car.

    2010 Elantra GLS black, all power package, bluetooth,floormats PZEV, automatic. (sorry, no sunroof, because he did not have any, in black)

    Final offered price was $13880 - 800 (no sunroof) + 300 (bluetooth) = $13380. I am not sure if he included destination or not, but I anyways would not have paid it and of course, tax and ttl extra.

    one more catch with this offer is you have to finance thro Hyundai which is expensive. I had a local lender who offered 1.6% lesser than them also GAP was expensive by $8 per month.

    This is in a southern CA dealership. I think the trick is if you do not buy it the same day, they will call you day after and agree to your offer :D (this is my guess)

    Did you get the purple Elantra, by chance? ;)
  • The salesperson was a lying crook and ripped me off. I had
    Bought a half dozen new cars before buying the elantra and was to trusting, because
    Everyone else stated a price and that what the contract stated.

    He said that he would sell me the 2005 Elantra for 11,500.00 and he put on the contract
    12,500.00 and Unfortunately I signed the contract because the bottom line didn’t
    look out of place. The contacts are intentionally complicated and confusing.
    Only discovered it a week later. So I had to eat it. Told everyone off at the dealership
    And will never buy another Hyundai again. They changed there name from
    Hustedt Hyhundai to Mid_island Hyundai. On long island.
  • Why don't you write to the Hyundai motor co. and tell them about it. You will probably not get your money back, but at least it will be a black mark against them.The dealers must get a good rating to keep a franchise.

    Write a letter to the owner. I was in a similar situation back in 1997 and was charged $900.00 more than the advertised price. Guy at work knew the owner and said to write a letter. I did and within a week I went to pick up the refund check at the dealership. Found out later the wife had read my letter first and she had her husband agree with her to get me the refund. Try it...worked for me. Just state the facts in a nice way and appeal to the owners sense of fair play...they'll most likely do it as a good will gesture.
    Good luck and let me know how it works out.

  • Does anyone have any experience buying a used elantra? Im looking on auto trader and theres a 2008 grey automatic elantra with sunroof and foglights for 10,290$ I think thats a fair price, but I would like to be OTD at 10k.
  • backybacky Twin CitiesPosts: 18,784
    How many miles? What would tax, license and fees be in your area?
  • It has 37,326 miles. The car is located in Phoenix AZ. Im not sure how much taxes and title would be maybe 1000?
  • backybacky Twin CitiesPosts: 18,784
    So if you want OTD at $10k, you are looking to buy the car for a little over $9k. KBB value on this car, assuming a GLS automatic, is $11,555 private-party value in Excellent condition, $9,955 in Fair condition, and up to $13,305 retail in Excellent condition, in Phoenix. Is this the car at Camelback Hyundai? It appears to be the lowest priced 2008 Elantra in the area with a moonroof. If you can do w/o a moonroof, the same dealer has a 2008 with only 10k miles for about $9700. That's a lot of warranty left! You might try dealing on that one to see if you can get it OTD for $10k. I think it will be tough to get the one with the moonroof for $10k... but you can always make an offer. How often can you use a moonroof in Phoenix, anyway? ;)
  • Thanks for the response! Yeah its the one at camelback hyundai. I really want a moonroof, thats the main reason I like that one. I have an 07 accent hatch right now and want to get an automatic 4 door with moonroof now. My old 95 maxima had a moonroof and I loved it, I used it all the time. Its nice to let in a little bit of light, or to crack open in the hot summer to let the heat escape. Right now its cold here so its perfect to have open with the heater on!
  • Hi,

    Dealer is asking for 15,500 OTD for 2010 Elantra SE (don't think it had anything other than floor mats), including m 1999 Escort SE (97,000 Miles) for trade.

    What do you think of the price? Originally, they asked for a little over 17,000 and I said it was too high.
  • How much did you get on your trade-in?
  • I think they offered 1,200 for the trade in.
  • Seems like a pretty fair price to me
  • Yes, seems like a good price. I am really tempted. Need to double check if my iPod Touch works with the iPod connector.
  • I bought a 09 Elantra with sunroof and 10k miles on it, this car used to be a rental, and was in a minor frontal accident, but no frame damage..

    I noticed some sound seems like the motor mount is broken, would Hyundai dealer take care of it no question asked if I take it there??

    is the hyundai 5 year/60000 mile bumper to bumper warranty transferrable? Even though the car was used as a rental at one time??

    I read Hyundai's site, it says:

    Excludes coverage for vehicles in commercial use (i.e., taxi, route delivery, delivery service, rental, etc.).

    I paid 9k out the door for the car, is it a deal? girlfriend don't like this car, I'm open to resell - in Phoenix, AZ

    I emailed Hyundai about this recently.

    Commercial use exclusion is for the second owner. Rental co as the first owner is okay, so the warranty transfers over. But don't just take my word for it: email Hyundai your VIN to confirm...they'll answer back within a day or two.

  • if the warranty is tranferrable, is it bumper to bumper or just powertrain? does it cover motor mounts?

    do you have the link to send the email to?

    thanks!

    Only the 5-year/60k bumper-to-bumper warranty is transferable. The motor mounts would be covered if they are defective. If they were damaged in the accident, that would not be covered.
