    Ten...Elantra trade in question is a 2010, not 2011.

    BUYERS are setting the market, not sellers.
    If one doesn't like price for Elantra, one may wait or buy another brand. No one is forcing buyers to pay MSRP or more for Elantras. Buyers choose to pay those amounts.

    No obligation to wait forever for unit to arrive.....

    typo, should have been 2010.
  • dealer would not budge from this price with the ADM...salesman said that this is a dream car right now and that i have to pay for that dream.....what a [non-permissible content removed]...

    I love this. If I was a dealer I would do this too. Think about it. High demand allows them to sell at a premium.

    If you are buying one of these because you have to have a car today, then your outta luck, otherwise just wait the market out. Its a freakin car, not life or death.

    Steve:All Orlando dealers are mighty proud of their Elantras. Can't blame them since plenty of buyers are taking the dive. Your best bet is to contact the St Augustine , Jacksonville or some of the dealers on the West cost.
    It is far better to get an Internet deal than visiting the dealers in person.

    Are you located in Florida? If so, shows a 'Certified Dealer' that is located 48.6 miles from Jacksonville who is selling the Elantras for 3-4% below MSRP. It's not much of a discount, but at least it's something less than MSRP!

    Hey All,

    Just got word a couple days ago that Hyundai has ceased production of 2011 Elantras in an effort to switch production to the 2012 model.

    Below is the release information:

    Hyundai Motor America is pleased to announce the release of the 2012MY Hyundai Elantra. The 2012MY Elantra is rated among the highest in residual value according to ALG, continuing its strong resale performance from the 2011MY when it won the ALG Residual Value Award for the Compact Car segment. The Elantra also continues to deliver 40 MPG highway standard; no other competitor offers 40 MPG highway for all trim levels. Elantra also delivers “class-above” interior roominess. Elantra is categorized by the EPA as a mid-size car rather than a compact car like Civic or Corolla. With 40 MPG highway, “class-above” interior roominess, and a starting price of $15,195, the 2012MY Elantra delivers exceptional value.
    Fuel economy is the most important purchase reason for the compact segment, especially with gas prices exceeding $4 per gallon in many areas of the U.S. To deliver better fuel economy, all 2012 Elantra automatic transmissions are equipped with an Active Eco System to improve real world fuel economy. The Active Eco System modifies engine and transmission control for improved fuel economy by smoothing out throttle responses. By selecting the Active Eco button, drivers can realize up to a seven percent increase in real-world fuel economy.
    • Active Eco System is standard on all Elantra automatic transmissions to improve
    real world fuel economy up to 7%
    • Front fog lights added to the GLS Preferred Package to enhance the front
    exterior appearance
    • The GLS Preferred model adds a passenger side sunvisor extension to complement the
    driver side
    • The Limited badge was redesigned for better visibility
    • The horn sound was improved to sound more prominent on all trim levels

    I wonder if one reason the 2012 Elantra was moved up was to better justify the approximate $450 price increase? ("It's new and improved, so we bumped the price up a little.")

    Just drove home our new 2011 Hyundai Elantra Limited with Nav. The car is very sharp! I drove my fathers Chevy Cruze LTZ to the dealership from across the state we average a speed of 75 and got a avg mpg of 33.1. After seeing the Elantra he is bummed he bought his Cruze! Dealership gave me a wonderful price! Overall thrilled to finally get the car. Drive home with varying 70-80 and I had 37 that was on the first 100 break in miles. That is pure bliss!

    I thought the same!
  • miranda200miranda200 Posts: 15
    Glad you like your new Elantra - me too! So - what was the "great price"?
  • peace5419peace5419 Posts: 6
    thank you so much for the information. i have been looking for a manual 2011 elantra since the beginning of april. i had even called hyundai directly several times with no explanation. did they say when they would be showing up in dealers?
  • supersize1supersize1 Posts: 10
    We got a price of 23,1xx OTD that is with the 6% sales tax and all fee's. For the limited with Nav. We got quoted this price almost 3 months ago. So as many can see the pricing has changed due to demands.

    We are very happy with the car and the price. It was a easy choice compared to the other cars in the range.

    Bought a 2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS white with beige/camel interior auto with preferred and navigation package including ipod cable, carpeted floor mats and wheel locks OTD price 21188$. Car price including all options 18950$ plus documentation fees NJ 349$, window etching 299$, nj dmv fees 249$, NJ tax 1340.43$. Dealer wont reduce the doc and window etching fees, some dealers ran out of stock, only reds and sky blue colors were left with some dealers.
    I tested the 2011 models on PRIUS II, COROLLA LE and FORD Focus 2012 before settling on the Elantra. I liked the interior space, ride and price with package on Elantra 2011.

    No deals here. Just took delivery from Brass City Hyundai in CT of a 2011 Elantra GLS with Preffered package and the typical goodies like floor mats and iPod cable. Supply is tight and I had to waite about 3 weeks after putting down $500 to get mine. Paid full sticker plus all the various fees (Tax, registration, delivery, etc). About $20,500 OTD. Keeping in mind Consumer Reports #1 rated small sedan with an excellent warranty its still a good deal compaired to the competition (Civic, Corolla, Cruze, Mazda 3 etc). Very nice little car (my other car is a 328xi - see me in the BMW forums). No regrets. The dealer/salesman was very professional. Easy transaction, no games at closing.
  • drew11mdrew11m Posts: 85
    Our other car is a 328xi 2008. I am curious as to your preferences driving either car. When I drive my Elantra after driving the wife's BMW, i really notice the power and torque difference.

    Why did you choose the Elantra as the 2nd car?
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    you got screwed royally by paying full car is worth paying full msrp..and by the way,you can deduct about 5000 dollars right off the bat of resale value as soon as you drove the car off the dealers lot..don't let what you read about elantra's haveing good resale value fool you..
  • backybacky Twin CitiesPosts: 18,682 car is worth paying full msrp...

    I read yesterday that the average transaction price for the Prius last month was MORE than MSRP. It's a seller's market for small, fuel efficient cars these days. Bad times for anyone in the market for such a car right now.

    ANY new car depreciates the moment it's driven off the lot. I doubt the Elantra will lose $5000 immediately, though. My 2004 has lost $6500 in value over its 7-year lifetime--or roughly 1/2 its purchase price.

    You're acting as if it were YOUR money that was spent on the Elantra. :confuse:

    Having first problem with Elantra at 37600 miles- CD player is defective and radio screen freezes. We have the comprehensive warranty from First Extended Service Corp which covers it being taken car eof. Repairing dealership is advising that the radio should be replaced, First Extended Service Corp says that they will only pay for repair- replacement would take 30 minutes of actual work, repairing will take 3-5 DAYS because they need to send the radio to AZ to be repaired. Selling dealership (Bob Dunn) COULD direct First Extended Service Corp to replace the radio but are choosing not to. They expect us to drive the car for 3-5 days without a radio and with a hole in the dash or to have the repairing dealership "put something in there"...I'm obviously not happy with this solution but Rick Powell the General Manager at Bob Dunn doesn't care- I would advice STRONGLY to avoid any warranty even remotely associated with First Extended Service Corp and to avoid buying from Bob Dunn in Greensboro NC. It turns out that First Extended is just a front business for Bob Dunn with the sole purpose of directing anger from the dealer and saving the dealer money. Per Rick Powell the General Manager at Bob Dunn "we are doing what we have to by law"- doesn't matter to them if it is right or not apparently... :mad:
