Hyundai Elantra Lease Questions

    Sure. The initial price quote came from Superior Hyundai in Fairfield, Ohio but I ended up closing the deal with Kerry Hyundai in Alexandria, Kentucky. Superior's payment kept coming out close to $25 dollars higher than what it should have according to my calculations. Despite several unsuccessful attempts to find out why it was higher from the dealer, I discovered that it was an additional $585 worth of paint and fabric protector that had already been added to the car that they were adding to their cap cost. Because I felt they were trying to be deceptive, I contacted Kerry Hyundai and asked if they would match it. Everything was done via email and was painless. I'm very happy with the deal.
    Good luck!

    Thank you!
  • I got this lease offer from a dealer today for a 2013 Elantra with preferred package:

    MSRP: 19,695
    INVOICE: $19,226
    TAX: 6%: $1193
    TAG/REG/DEALER FEE ($599): $891+ 281 (if new tag)

    OUT THE DOOR PRICE WITH EVERYTHING:  $19,704 + 281 from above

    76% RESIDUAL / .00074 MF - BUY OUT:$14,968


    I would really appreciate your thoughts on this offer.

    All those fees are killing you, I work in the biz and I would not pay more then 500 for tags and fees. If you are paying 1170 they are making their money here.

    Use this calculator to figure your payment out.

  • Ok, you think fees are to much. Can you explain why? What do you think about the cap price, money factor? MF seems high to me, am I wrong?

    Hi, I am no expert but I think the numbers are very high too. Look at post
    #238, this looks like an excellent deal, I am going to try to duplicate this one. What dealer are you working with? The money factor seems ok, the fees are high, I would expect 500-550 for registration, title etc but thats it. You want agreed sale price to be around 10% less than msrp, then deduct dealer incentives, then do calculations, there are many lease programs such as the one someone linked to above. Good luck, its such a pain to haggle I know.

    Thanks for your post. I did the calculations on the link above and the payment came out $50+ less than what I was offered. Actually, this is the first offer the internet sales guy made. I'll look into different calculators and I'll respond with something more reasonable for me. I mean $230 with 600 down for a 24 month lease with a good residual value just doesn't add up. Thanks for your help. Ps. I think I've seen the post you mentioned, that deal is awesome. The dealer I'm working with is Deland Hyundai in Florida.
  • This is a very good deal. Does you cap cost include any other fees besides th acquisition fee and how much was the acquisition fee? I have a guy trying to jack me with a $230 p/m offer with $600 down for a 24 month lease on a 2013 Elantra w/preferred package. The MSRP he quoted is identical to yours, $19695.
  • I used the calculator and then spoke to my dealer, he lost it when he heard my calculation for the monthly payment. He just asked how much I can put down so he can start a new offer. I told him about the fees and his "out the door price being to high" he never referred to it. He is working on a new deal now, hopefully he'll come up with something good for $600 down. His deal is not bad, but like you said, his fees were making a killing. Thanks for you opinion.

    Please let us know how you make out!! good luck. Im curious if he comes down. Im in NJ and will be trying next..
  • He cam back with his "best offer" which was, in fact identical to his $230 p/month with $600 down for a 24 month lease on 13 Elantra - preferred. I told him its the same offer and to stop wasting my time. After two days of emailing back and forth, if he doesn't go down after that, at least I can concentrate elsewhere. Thanks for your comments everyone.

    According to my contract, the only fee added to the cap cost was the acquisition fee of $595. The total that was due at signing was to be $723.70. It lists $500 as cap cost reduction, $133.70 first months payment, $60 for title fees and $30.00 tax on cap cost reduction. They used a $500 rebate to cover the cap cost which left a balance of $223.70, which is what we wrote a check for at delivery.
    Has the dealer you're working with provided you with a selling price? Don't talk payment, just selling price. Once you have that, you can use a lease calculator to figure out what your payments should be. Also, don't wait on one particular dealer. Start emailing several asking for price quotes.
    Even though I think you said you were in Florida, here is a link to an ad running in the Cincinnati area papers. It used to say $125 a month a couple weeks ago.
    Good luck!
  • These offers are crazy. There is nothing like it here in Fla. The deal you got is a new record. Thanks for working out the details, its a lot of help. I stopped my negotiation with the $230 p/m guy and now I'm looking into others. He had a good initial offer but would not take it down. I will keep on working and hope for better deals in April.

    I went to a hyundai dealer this morning in NJ by my math I should have been at 137 a month with first payment down. They were at 171.

    msrp 19825
    dealer price 18560
    Rebates 1900 (motozuma, college, competitive)
    NJ 7%tax
    Fees 850
    money factor .00074
    Residual 76%
    12k miles a year
    I should be at mid 130s they were at 171.

    Going back tonight will have the deal done by middle of next week but on my terms. ( I am in the biz)
  • Man, whatever I figure, they are baffled by it. I mean I've been writing emails for three days now and so far, the best I have is $209 total with only first payment down. What is bad thoguh is I have to drive 80 miles to get the papers signed. How much would a delivery be, can that be negotiated in the price? Good lick anyway.
  • sebzx79sebzx79 Posts: 26
    Its all done...
    19845 was the sticker.
    I used Hyundai Circle price 18603.
    Rebates I used.
    200 down 149 a month.
    NJ has some stupid fees that you cant get around.
  • cali92cali92 Posts: 12
