Hyundai Elantra Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • It is actually higher. I wish I could buy the car the US and drive it over. I don't think I can though.
    The MRSP is $20580 before taxes/freight/PDI. The dealer effectively is charging me the MSRP + the taxes and discounting the freight,PDI and admin charges.

    Is this a fair deal (without comparing it to the US market)?

    I don't know; the U.S. market is all I know. Maybe someone else from Canada can let you know.

    2005 Elantra GT, 5-door, with all option packages.

    This is still on the lot - the car had 76 miles after my test drive, and likely not too many more since then.

    I'm trying to get it for $15k out the door, but the dealer still doesn't want to go that low, although the gap between us is getting narrower.

    Should I just bite the bullet and come up to the dealer's price? It's a little more than I'm hoping to spend in general (but not totally out of my range), and I'm not sure I need all the options, but I do kinda like the idea of the sunroof and the leather seats. On the other hand, this is an '05 that nobody visiting that dealership wants, so holding out longer has some appeal. I've been exercising my power of "no" and of walking away from the table, but they have me in that they know I like the car. So we're both playing it tough here.

    It's a tough choice, especially when I can get an '06 GLS without all the fancy stuff for $14,300 out the door, although at a dealership an hour away. That's their internet price; I'm not sure how much haggle space I would have there.

    I guess what I'm trying to fight is the feeling of "I win" associated with this particular car. That I've invested so much energy in the negotiation and that model, that I'm overlooking the better deal I can get elsewhere.

    Anyway, any and all advice or constructive comments appreciated. Thanks.

    Leather doesn't do it for me, but I wish I could get a set of GT rims. Other than that, the GLS has pretty much everything I would want.

    I doubt there is any haggle room on the internet price. I paid a little less for my GLS 5-door, but in 05 you didn't get the fancy stereo standard, so that makes up the difference.

    The loaded GT price is good, but after all it *is* a 2005 model so I'd probably be tempted to low ball them too.
  • tsgeiseltsgeisel Posts: 352
    I sit corrected. I just got the call that my $15k out the door price was accepted. I'll fill out the paperwork either tomorrow morning or Saturday.

    This for a fully loaded (Option packages 1 & 2), automatic, GT 5-door. Electric Red isn't my first choice of colors, but it's an acceptable one.

    Buyers remorse is, of course, starting to settle in, but so is some excitement...
  • doohickiedoohickie Posts: 949
    You got a good deal! Enjoy!

    You got the same color as me. Not my first choice either, but it grows on you.

    The buyers remorse will quickly fade when you put your Tibby sway bar on (hint, hint).

    I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has recently purchased a GLS 5 door with AT, particularily those from the San Antonio/Austin area to see what others are paying. Dealers here are telling me $14,000.00 plus TT&L and I'm reading the posts where many are paying considerably less.
  • doohickiedoohickie Posts: 949
    I paid $13,900 plus TT&L in October in Fort Worth when the rebates were at their worst. And the 05 was still the current model year; the 06 Elantras had not yet arrived. (Same car- 5 door, AT. Mine has the base stereo.)

    The only possible reason I can see for a higher price at this point would be the relative rarity of hatchbacks.
  • alamocityalamocity Posts: 680
    Thanks for the feedback, may wait until the 07 Accent comes out as I don't see prices dropping any time soon on the 06's since they are so limited.
  • tsgeiseltsgeisel Posts: 352
    I was quoted $14,400 out the door in Northern CA on an '06 Hatchback with AT.

    I was able to find an '05 GT elsewhere, so I went with that, but the other price was tempting.

    Hi-
    I want to purchase an Elantra(2006) GLS with automatic trans. in NJ. Can anybody please suggest a good (honest?) dealer I can start talking to? Any good experiences?
    Thanks in advance!
  • doohickiedoohickie Posts: 949
    Not sure about that area, but try looking up Edmunds True Market Value for the car you are interested in; it gives you a pretty good idea of whether you're getting a good deal.

    Can any one tell me what a good price would be for a 2006 Hyundai Elantra 4 door hatchback, automatic, ABS with traction control? We live in central NY, the dealer said the MSRP is $16895, and they would go to $16095. I think that they could go much lower. I need help.
  • doohickiedoohickie Posts: 949
    You should be in the $14s.
  • tllastotllasto Posts: 2
    Would that be before a rebate or after? Thank you.
  • tsgeiseltsgeisel Posts: 352
    I was being quoted $14.4k out the door (tax, title, license included) for a GLS hatch with Automatic transmission. Check out the Edmunds site for the cost of the ABS/Traction control package and add that in.

    The price seems a bit high, but not outrageously so. You should be able to get them to come down a bit, but don't expect an order of magnitude difference.

    A lot will depend on how well they're selling in your area.

    And if it doesn't look like they're willing to budge on the price, feel free to say something like "That's ok. I can wait for the new '07s to come out anyway." See if they don't lower the price right there.

    even tho we never bought a car from there, we think Lester Glen Hyundai in Toms River is o.k. Friends have bought cars from High Point Hyundai in Sussex and seemed pleased. We bought all our hyundais from Lehigh Valley Hyundai in Emmaus, PA. they are excellant especially their service.
  • habhavsarhabhavsar Posts: 12
    I got the following quote from Lehigh Valley Hyundai...
    "$13881 including the rebate plus tax and tags"
    After reading this forum I belive I should get around $13000-13500 Drive Out price, correct? I am still waiting for quotes from other two.
    Any suggestions? Thanks.
  • njdevil1njdevil1 Posts: 45
    if you can get a lower price, see if lehigh valley will beat it.

    At that point, you're getting to be in the "noise". $13,500 vs. $13,800?

    Also, are you talking AT, what options, etc.?
  • habhavsarhabhavsar Posts: 12
    It's Elantra GLS 4 door sedan.
    Lester Glen, in Toms River, NJ also gave the ditto quote - 13881 after rebates and discounts + state fees and sales tax.

    If it's auto trans, that's pretty good. It's about what I paid for my 05 hatch and don't all the 06s come with the upgraded stereo including tweeters on the doors? I had to add tweeters to my car.

    We drove from CA to TX 1st week of April to help my stepson (at Ft.Hood ) get a first car, preferably an Accent. After a 1st trip to the Killeen and Kyle dealerships w/o a deal, we ended up in Waco on a siteseeing trip. They didnt have an Accent (5 spd stick w/ air) but showed us the Elantra. For about the same MSRP, (over 14k), the car had WAY better standard features. He gave us a quote of about $12,500 INCLUDING TT&L. We wanted to show it to my stepson first and on our trip back to the base, we stopped at the Killeen dealership who matched the price. We added the GAP insurance for $189. Total came to $12,700 after 3 rebates totaling $2000( hyundai 1000, loyalty 500, military 500). The only option was the trunk tray and we got the dealer "appearance package" (tinted windows and "scotchguard"-yeah right)thrown in for free.
    We think we got a good deal for our son. I would recommend either dealership, Automax in Killeen or the Waco Dodge/ Hyundai dealer that gave us the first price. :)

    check with lehigh valley Hyundai again. Believe me, you will find out why?
  • alamocityalamocity Posts: 680
    Thanks for the information, I'll have to look into those dealerships. Here the 5 door Elantra's are running about $14,000.00 plus tt&l. They are in limited supplies so that is what keeps the price up and since I don't currently own a Hyundai I don't qualify for the loyalty discount and being retired military doesn't qualify me as being military.
  • spex2000spex2000 Posts: 4
    I'm sorry,I should have said that we didn't buy the 5 door w/ AT, we bought the sedan with the 5 speed. I just wanted to show the approximate discounts that dealers can give. BTW, when we got back, we saw a local dealer in CA advertising a "1 only at this price " at $9500 +TTL including all the rebates. The deals ARE out there. Good luck! :)
  • njdevil1njdevil1 Posts: 45
    alot of times that one car was just sold before you got there so be careful- it's usually bait.
  • spex2000spex2000 Posts: 4
    My feeling about the "1 only at this price" deals is that if they can offer discounts like that on one car, I can get the same discount on another car and I wont't buy until I get that price. Locally, here in So-Cal, I've been seeing more dealers advertising multiple deals, i.e. "3 at this price", "5 at ...." , etc. and more. What worked for us on the TX deal was the Waco dealer actually trying to get the Elantra price down into the Accent ranges advertised in the local papers! :P

    Hyundai Elantra 2006 GLS 4 door Automatic (standard package, nothing additional)=I got $13400 drive out price (including everything) from a dealer in NJ. I will call a couple of dealers who claim to beat any price bu $200 on Monday to see they can beat this. I think $13400 is a good price itself, right? Please advice.
