    It was from Towne in Randolph NJ. I did have a trade in and I must admit that I did not negotiate as hard as I could have but thought I had a decent but not best price. So, they made out on that part of the deal

    Here is what I paid for the Limited with mats, cargo net and ipod cable. The car had the mats and the cargo net but not the cable. I had no trouble getting the salesman to get one from the parts dept.

    $399 Doc
    $7.5 tire tax
    $5.7 Motor vehicle

    That's it. I don't include the sales tax because mine was a small amount because of the trade in.

    I also got quotes on the phone or internet from Global Auto Mall (rt 22, I think) - $20556 and Wayne (it may have a different name) $20,700. The rest of the dealers were MSRP.

    I picked up the car Saturday. It took a little over two weeks to get the car.
    It is fantastic. I love the bluetooth phone. It took a bit of time to get my phone, which is locked because of work, to sync all the time but it is a great feature. The seats are comfortable and the ride is great

    Good luck.

    My understanding is that the manual trans GLS doesn't come with a/c--you need to add the comfort package. Does the basic automatic GLS come with a/c?

    Has anyone noticed that you can't get a Nav. system on a 2012 Elantra GLS, or at least that's the way it appears to me.

    After a couple of weeks of searching for cars, I finally bought a Hyundai Elantra Limited w/ Navigation. It was the last 2011 from a dealership 1 hour away from me. Msrp. $23, 2XX, price paid $21,500, OTD $23,267. I think I got a good deal, but there was an awry feeling when I left the dealership. I put a deposit down for the car, but didn't sign any contract/paperwork saying I bought the car. The sales guy said that we will do that on Monday when I bring in the down payment for financing and sign all the paperwork then. What do you guys think? Is he pulling my tail?

    Too late now, but you should have gotten some kind of document stating you put a $$$ deposit on a specific car (VIN) with the details on delivery and under what conditions your deposit is refundable.

    I just bought a new 2012 Elantra GLS AT with preferred package + mat + ipod cable from Dublin Hyundai in California earlier this month.

    Paid $18,300 plus tax.

    I negotiated the price over email/phone and had a good buying experience.

    Other dealers wouldn't match the price.

    The finance manager offered me 10 year extended warranty program by "MAP" for $2500 which is way over priced. When I told them about my Hyundai protection program alternative, they quickly dropped it to $1200. Do your research first before you buy and don't be afraid to say no when pressured.

    I like the car so far although the gas mileage I get is not as high as 29/40 as advertised yet..

    Thanks for the posts in the forum.

    Good luck

    One of the finance managers at Capitol Hyundai, CA lied to me about Hyundai extended warranty. I told him I want only the Hyundai Protection Plan (HPP) offered by Hyundai over the phone. He told me that the (HPP) plan is offered by a third party called customedge and offered me a slightly lower price in order to lure me into his office. Fortunately I caught the discrepancy in the plan description after I came to his office. It turns out customedge is another after market plan. He finally showed me the real HPP with higher price. I ended up buying the HPP from Magnussens Fremont Hyundai.

    How can he lie with a straight face? Be careful and stay away from Capitol Hyundai !

    Just bought this off the truck at the dealership, Base GLS Model Red Chilli Pepper with just some basic Option. MSRP $16875, OTD $15750 with a trade in (10 year old 112K Jetta Wagon).

    looked at a 2012 elantra gls with manual tranny and the comfort package.msrp is $17,300.00 and dealer would not budge from msrp so i left the dealership to go get lunch..
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    i hate to burst your bubble here.but after reading about the great deal you got on your 2012 elantra i decided to drive up to st.augastine from where i live in hallandale beach,fla(about a 5 hour drive)...i told them that i wanted a 2012 elantra gls with auto,and the preffered package.this car had a msrp of $18,990.00..i also told them that i read online on one of the auto forums that somebody purchased a 2012 elantra gls with auto,and the preffered package for $16,900.00 from this dealership and if i could get the same deal by paying cash..they almost laughed me out of the dealership by saying that there is no way somebody got that kind of a deal from this dealership and the best price they could give me is $18,300.00..a far cry from the $16,900.00 that i read about on this forum..needless to say i was dissapointed and it was a long drive back home without a new elantra...

    Why would you drive 5 hours each way without a firm price from the start. The original poster said they achieved that price after dealing with them online. I don't know if the price was correct, but I wouldn't invest an entire day to find out.

    I recently asked for quotes from several different dealers around this area and they all asked for around $19,900. Does this price seem ok to you all? I've seen someone buying for $18300+tax here. I asked them to lower the price a little bit but they all said it's nonnegotiable. I never knew the price for Elantra went up this much!
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    tell them to stick that 19,900 where the sun don't shine..there are some people who have paid $17,500.00 for this exact car and one guy who posted here said that recently he purchased a 2012 hyundai elantra gls with auto and the prefered package from hyundai of st.augustine,fla for $16,900.00..which beats 19,900.00 in my book..i guess it really depends which part of the country your in and where the supply and demand is at it's peak...

    I would e-mail other dearlers in the area an see if they can give you a better deal. Even if ya had to go down to Va.Beach. If they want to sell, make them work for it.
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    price according to is $17,300.00 and i should be able to get this according to them for $16,700.00...invoice price.

    Could you tell me which dealer you bought your car from?
  • bruce1960bruce1960 Posts: 1
    purchased mine on 7/2/11 indigo night 2012 limited w/nav, push button start,floor mats,ipod cable,homelink. MSRP was 23,735 paid 22,500 Had a hard time finding a limited with the nav at the time. The local hyundai dealer chillicothe ohio had 3 none with nav that sold the same day they were they came off the truck. Called every dealer within 150 miles only to be told i would have to be put on a waiting list 4 to 6 weeks & that I would be paying MSRP or up to 750.00 more. Luckily I had a dealer in columbus call me to tell me they had just got one in & it was still on the truck. I made the hr. trip & as I was waiting on the financing I noticed a little group of people around the car. stepped outside & a couple approached me & asked if I was purchasing the car. They offered me 500 dollars cash to walk away from the deal so they could buy it. Dont know how hard they are to come across now but a month ago they were really hard to come by in this area,so i feel i got a pretty good deal 1200.00 off msrp & a full tank of gas. Had the windows tinted 20 %. So far I love the car. Purchased at Hatfiel hyundai in columbus ohio

    20 years ago if you would have told me that someone was going to pay you 500 bucks to not purchase a hyundai car so that they can purchase it i would have said your crazy to even mention such a has come a long way since then for people to be fighting over the cars.
  • psgame2kpsgame2k Posts: 36
    If bruce1960 is not joking about getting paid $500 to not purchase the elantra, then the world has certainly changed. When did you ever hear people are fighting like that to buy GM or Ford cars?

    Toyota Prius has been very popular; people pay MSRP and wait three months for it. Yet, I never hear anyone would pay money to another buyer to not purchase the prius.

    What I also do not understand is given the high unemployment rate and lousy economy, why would people fight over korean cars? Maybe we ought to elect a korean to be the president of United States. Maybe he can balance the budget and pay off national debt.

    My coworker mentioned he can get a 2012 Hyundai Elantra (base) for $9999. We are in NJ. I wanted to know whether this is realistic and Hyundai has the margin to come down to this price? I dont mind a base model but from what I've seen, this may be a stretch.

  • A 2012 Elantra for $10K? Do you honestly think that's the truth? C'mon now.
  • backybacky Twin CitiesPosts: 18,905
    Oh, he forgot to mention it had been totalled and has a salvage title. And isn't repaired yet. ;)
