Hyundai Elantra Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • sandman_6472sandman_6472 Coral Springs, FLPosts: 2,626
    Black is a bit intense down here in South Florida but many do buy that combo! Saw a charcoal one with a spoiler at the dealer yesterday which looked really sharp but have decided that if I do go Hyundai, it's gonna be a Tuscon which seems to be an Elantra that just sits a few inches higher. Tried a Nissan Rogue a couple weeks ago and it was great so hoping the Tuscon will top it...a co-worker has a Tuscon and just loves it. It would be perfect for me and would fit on my side of the garage perfectly. Price wise it's in that sweet spot that I'm willing to spend and truth be told, even though I'd love a C Class or 3 Series, they are just not practical in my case. A vehicle like the Tuscon is perfect and it really is an Elantra underneath I'm assuming.

    From what I can tell, a refresh is due in year 4, which would be 2015. Should be interesting to see what Hyundai comes up with.

  • I bought Limited with tech package, floor mats, auto dimming and first aid which had cost of car $23685 with $775 freight for total MSRP $24,460 dealer had added mud guards, door edge guards and nitrogen inflation for final total price $25,159.95.

    I paid cost of car $23.340.00 then minus $1750 rebates for $21,590 plus TTL. this is in Georgia and according to Edmunds this price before rebates was less than invoice so feel received good deal. They also gave me $2800 on a 2000 TL trade in which was $500 more than any other trade in offer I received.

    wow, $1750 rebates? how did that happen? Also, would you mind telling me which dealer you went with? I'm in Georgia too. Thanks!
  • It was Rick Case in Roswell. The rebates were competitive maker and using Hyundai finance.
  • Hi, I have a question about the customer choice alternate rebate ($1500) with the special apr that needs to go threw Hyundai financing. Why offer both when they offer the special apr alone that is even lower? Both have to go threw Hyundai so why not just offer a low rate that would come out about the same as a rebate with a higher apr? Thanks

    Went to the dealer and told i got quote from another dealer with 1500 below invoice price. After few back and forth they offered me elantra gls automatic with preferred pkg (wheel locks, carpeted, etc) for 16550 includes 1500 cash back from hyundai (1250) below invoice. so my total including taxes and everything came out to be 18050.
  • therockettherocket Posts: 11
    great deal. which state you bought the car in?
  • Just bought a 2013 shimmering silver/black int. Elantra Coupe a/t with mud flaps, cargo tray, carpeted floor mats and first aid kit for $18706 before any taxes, title, ect. I went with a lower interest rate instead of the rebate/interest rate offered by Hyundai. I'm in New York State.

    At dealer today and sat in a sedan with a sticker of $22.4k before anything else added on. Comfortable vehicle especially with the power drivers seat. Not ready to pull the trigger yet but a very nice vehicle though a bit pricey.

  • Maybe look at a Elantra gls instead...still a nice car with a lot to offer and a lot less money.

    Due to pretty bad spinal issues, a power seat is going to be a must on my next vehicle. And the GLS doesn't have that option from what I've seen.

    I started by contacting Brandon Florida Hyundai this past Friday night on my way home from work, I was driving so I didn’t write down the “Internet Manager” name I spoke with at 1800 hours, he promised a callback with numbers on an Elantra base within 15-30 minutes, guess what no callback so I start on Saturday morning by contacting the GM Dan Norris who runs a TV ad saying if your experience was not good contact me on the store web site and tell me, “I will fix it.’ I sent the email and 3 minutes later I get a callback from Earl an Internet manager saying how sorry he was about how I was treated, what can he do to help me, I explain again what I am looking for my son, the Elantra base no bells & whistles. I explain I would see him between 1400-1500 hours that afternoon as we had other plans for the morning. Another 10 minutes later I get a call from “Anthony” who claims he is calling on Mr. Norris behalf and he wants to fix the error from Friday night, so I have to explain to him once again what I am looking for and I explain to him when I would be there, but I also explain to him I had already spoken with Earl but “Anthony” says he is calling directly because Mr. Norris asked to act on his behalf. I ask “Anthony” to get with Earl and sort out who is going to work with me and he says he will but it will be him because Mr. Norris specifically asked him to call me. I say that is good, I told “Anthony” where I needed to be on lease payment and purchase payment the first time we spoke and details of the car we were looking at for our son, “Anthony” says we can get there on either payment easy. I explain to “Anthony” that we are turning in my sons 2010 Mazda 6 lease with 5000 miles on it when we purchased 36000 miles on the lease, “Anthony” says we can use that as a trade in since the miles are so exceptionally low, they will pay us several thousand dollars above our lease turn in numbers for a exceptionally low mileage vehicle like that, guess what another LIE. Anthony” calls me back 12 times before I arrive at the dealership and lo and behold “Anthony” is not his real name, it is Amir and guess what he had never spoken to Earl who is whom we meet when we get to the showroom. “Amir” also LIED to me numerous times on the phone saying Mr. Norris was waiting for me to personally apologize to us, guess what another LIE Mr. Norris had been gone for over an hour for the day already. “ Amir” comes and tosses some keys at Earl and then sulks in the background like a baby who lost his favorite toy when we depart for the test drive with Earl, needless to say they never spoke about who was going to work with me as I had asked numerous times. I had asked both Earl and Amir on the phone who I had spoken to the previous evening and when I got there they claimed they couldn’t track the phone call, but somehow they had no problem making a combined 17 calls to me at the same number. Then please let me get to the numbers and how messed up they were, as previously stated I had given them both ballpark numbers we needed to be at, they both claim on the phone , “We won’t lose a Repeat Hyundai buyer deal on numbers”, guess what another LIE, they lost the deal on NUMBERS, HONESTY and STUPIDITY. Their lease numbers were over a $100 dollars a month above both Chevy & Mazda and their purchase numbers were over $50 a month above both as well. Mr. Norris FIX the people who represent you to the public, “Amir should be terminated immediately for all the LIES he told us starting with his name, tell me your real name not an American name you make up, Please”. Earl shouldn’t promise things on the phone he can’t deliver in person when you show up ready to do business

    Punctuation is a beautiful thing. Your post is hard to read sir, in the future, use proper punctuation so it can be read easier. Sorry you had a bad experience but you ended up with an o k car at a great price so all ended well. I've found that purchasing a vehicle ain't much fun unless both sides your case, the Hyundai store dropped the ball while being a bit dishonest so y'all did the right thing and left. Why reward bad service with a sale?

    Hi, I'm looking at a Hyundai Elantra GLS (manual) in Illinois with a MSRP of 18145 and invoice of 17596.

    Starting point from the dealer was:
    msrp: $18145
    sell $16832
    dest $795
    taxable price = $17627
    hyundai financing rebate -1500
    financed price (excluding TTT) $16127

    In playing with some data on the web I'm thinking that this isn't really a great price and I was going to counter them with this:

    msrp: $18145
    sell: $15700
    dest: $795
    taxable price = $16495
    rebate -1500
    financed price (exc TTT) $14995

    Have we seen them go that far below invoice before? Do we know how much the holdback is on the car?

    Thanks in advance!
