Hyundai Accent Prices Paid and Buying Experience



    Sorry, I forgot to mention it was a 3-door hatchback. I got it from Garden Grove Hyundai in Southern California.

    What proof of registration did you have to give the dealer.

    My dealer here said that I need to provide both the 2008 and the 2009 registration because my 2009 registration started on 3/9/2009 and expires 3/9/2010 and does not cover the full 12 month period.

    Supposedly I don't qualify unless I can somehow get proof of my 3/9/2008 to 3/9/2009 registration to show it was registered for the past 12 months.

    NOTE: I do have my insurance proof showing that it was insured for the past 12 months.

    When I called the CARS hotline, they said if the dealer was requiring it - it must be needed. They suggested I contact my state BMV and ask them to provide proof of my 2008 registration so that I can qualify for the CARS program.
    I had both the insurance and reg info to show a year. You also need the pink slip, which I forgot to bring...but they said they could do it without it but it would cost $25. So I'm going to bring it within a few days which they said was okay. Let me say though, The Accent is a nice car, very comparable to the Yaris hatch...Better warranty though. Just wanted some trouble free driving for many years. For $8500, I feel that even keeping the car for 5 years would be a huge win. However, I'm sure it will last much longer the way my Mom drives.

    Started my shopping for 09 Accent Hatchback SE w no extras. Offered one in stock for $12,870 plus tax-tags and registration just outside the DC beltway. No Hyundai dealers in the district so residents go to MD or VA.
    HAHA!! Just had to update my post because of the following: In case you didn't read post #43 (read it for details) I ended up paying $8,522.19 out the door for my 2009 Accent GS w/ Auto, Premium Pkg. Well, I just found out that according to the California Board of Equalization, the $4,500 is considered a nontaxable government purchase. I clued in my dealer, they had a meeting, and now I'm going to get a partial sales tax refund! Where I live in Southern California, the sales tax is an ungodly 8.75% - so I will be getting a check for $393.75! That makes my total cost for this car $8,128.44!! Super deal. I'm glad I did it early too before all of the chaos...:)

    Traded in an old crap clunker that was worth $1,000 at best
    What was the clunker? Year? Mileage?
  • I ended up paying 12,600 not including taxes and financing interest. I believe I could have got it for 11,900 or 12,000 even, but this was just after the cash for clunkers program and they only had one 2009 Accent left in stock. I wanted a Toyota Yaris but three local Toyota dealers were all out of stock. Oh well.

    This was in Missouri by the way.

    In Richmond, Virginia I just purchased the Accent 4 door sedan.
    The only "features" are air conditioning & floor matts.
    After fees, taxes & licensing, I paid $12,406.
    Then bought & installed a radio.
    This was the first purchase I've ever made from a dealership, as I've always purchased used cars from individuals.
    I had a very smooth buying experience without the pressurizing dialogue that I experienced at other dealerships the week prior to this purchase.
    I recommend Micky at Pearson Hyundai on Midlothian Turnpike in Richmond, Virginia.

  • We were offered a car they listed at $17,130.00 which is roughly $1,290.00 over car's MSRP's $15,840.00 pricing let a lone the TMW pricing of $15,677.00 with the Electrical Premium Options upgrade. There are 5 Automaxes in Oklahoma, but only the Broken Arrow dealership Premier Dealer raised their on line prices way above the regular high MSRP prices. With these higher prices on Accents, it looks like your really saving a lot when your not. They also advertised 15" Alloy rims on their 18 Accents in this price range that actually only come with 14" steel rims, so why is this one dealer listed as a Premier Dealer knowing these facts made me wonder about referral from's web site as a place to get a good deal. Here is their web site for only one of 18 such Accents and look under Specifications on this car:

    Copied and past Specs here for all to review if interested:

    Is a $12,500 plus tax, document fee, title a good price for a 2010 "four" door Accent GLS automatic? The car has power windows and locks. It retails for $15,460.
  • Bought a 2010 Hyundai Accent (3 DR Hatchback with Automatic Transmission) for $10300 OTD. It includes everything (Title, PA Tax & Registration). I had to use Hyundai Finance and ALL other rebates to get this price. My out of pocket expenses were $10300.

    I have put 1400 Miles on it, the car runs great. Spent another $150 and got stereo installed from local store. The Hands Free telephone, Blue Tooth Music (IPOD, SMART PHONE), Tuner and CD Player run great with preinstalled Hyundai 4 speaker system.
  • Holler Hyundai in Winter Park, Florida sold me this car for $13888, plus $599 dealer processing fee before taxes were added and rebates subtracted with no haggling. This price was about $400 below invoice with the dealer fee added. OTD cost was $13862 after $2000 rebate. I was very impressed with this dealer advertising such a low price right from the start with no gimmicks about down payment or military or college grad rebates. Could I have gotten a better deal? Maybe, but why go through the stress and hassle of haggling if you get a good deal up front?
  • So including tax and title this was the price? So what was the price before tax and tag. I need to ask dealer for this price since tax and tag differ across states. Also was there any special incentives..

    When does this new model debut? It looks like a mini Elantra, which is a good thing. Just saw a new Elantra in our preferred color over by the Hyundai shop & I was blown away. Just hope the rear vision is good & not compromised due to the sloping C pillar. This, or the new Accent will most likely take the place of the wife's Mazda 3s within the next year and a 1/2. Mazda won't step up to the plate on our current problem...we found a TSB for our particular problem but they said..."too bad". Seriously doubt she'll consider another 3...don't want the same car for 7 more years personally, that would be a total of almost 13 years!!

  • I just paid $14,600 ($13,708 without tax, tag, and documentation fees) out the door at Lee Hyundai in Fayetteville, NC for a Nordic White five-speed 2010 Accent SE three door. I handled the whole thing over the internet and the dealership was great. They beat every other dealer I talked to on their first offer.
  • Correction. The pre-tax, tag, and doc fee price was $13,662.
