    elantralover,you are right on with that $18,100.00 price.over the summer i purchased a 2013 elantra gls with the preffered package.msrp was $19, final negotiated price before TTT was $18,163.00....

    hi folks,my elderly aunt wanted me to post this messege about her recent car purchasing experience.i went with her today to look at some new cars she was interested in.her 1999 honda accord turned in it's notice and she decided to trade it in.she narrowed down her choices between the 2013 chevy cruze and the 2013 hyundai elantra due to better gas mpg..anyway,we got lucky today since the hyundai dealership and chevy dealership are across the street from each other which made comparing the 2 cars a little easier.first up was the 2013 chevy cruze LS with auto tranny.msrp was $19,080.00..she didn't test drive the car but wanted to see the elantra across the street to see how it compared with the cruze..this is where the comparisons ended.we looked at a 2013 hyundai elantra gls with the preffered package which had a msrp of $19,'s very hard to believe that only 600 dollars seperated both these cars and yet the elantra offered a ton more features for the money...where to start,warranty,room,power,cruise control,4-wheel disk brakes,heated front seats,compass rear-view mirror,illuminated vanity mirrors,as well as ignition,front fog lights,better mpg....this was a no-brainer for my aunt and she purchased the elantra and is thrilled with it.we both sat in the cruze and it felt cheap and inferior to the elantra.

  • I'm looking to buy the Elantra coupe 2013 SE model. I am in Ontario Canada where taxes are 13% and my finance rate for 84 months is 0.9%.

    I was wondering if someone can tell me what I should be paying for this car.

    Total Sticker Price $19,240.00

    Amount Financed: $18,436.00

    Things I declined to buy from Dealership:

    1. 10-yr/100k Extended Warranty - Price $2200 w/ a $100 deductible; although I was able to get the price down to $1650. Car comes w/ 5yr/60k New Vehicle Warranty, and you can always purchase an extended warranty as you get close the end of the New Vehicle Warranty - which really only provides an addition 5yrs/40K miles of extended coverage. (I had purchased one w/ my '06 Civic for $1695, zero deductible, 8yr/120K mile - they couldn't offer one w/out a deductible and gave me some b/s line about all deductibles need to be equal for all warranties.) Besides their aren't many people who blow 60k miles in 5 yrs, or still have the car after 5 yrs. So, I'll cross this bridge when I get to it and not before - I don't want to pay for something I may never use.

    2. Gap Insurance Coverage: Gap insurance is a great coverage to have, but buy it through your insurance company, versus buying it through the dealership. Ex: Dealership was going to charge me $800 for gap coverage, which lasts the full term of the loan. My insurance carrier added it for an additional $9.00/6 months coverage. Note* Gap Insurance is really only needed the first 2-3yrs of the loan term, as the first 2 years of car payments the majority of which is applied to the loan's interest, and less is applied to the principal balance - which would be your payoff amount should your car get totalled. Gap coverage makes up the difference between what your car's assessed value at the time of the accident vs. what your loan balance - thus not leaving you with a balance to pay for a car you no longer own, or have to fold into your new replacement car loan. So, to complete my example above, it will only cost me an additional $45 for 2.5 years of gap coverage, versus the $800 the dealership attempted to sell me.

    3. Paint and Under Carriage Sealant - Declined: I don't live in South Dakota, where this product application would be a must to prevent/minimize corrosion and extend the life of a vehicle. I live in California, known for its mild climate. Here my car, though not garaged, but carported, is washed and detailed weekly, and waxed monthly. Yes, I've been told that I'm a bit OCD about the care of my vehicles, but then again, that's why I've always received top value when I decide to sell.

    I realize that I wasn't too popular with the Finance representative I worked with in the closing of my purchase. One must realize the reasons why the dealerships attempt to sell you these options, is to pad the bottom-line. Just know that you're in charge, that you are not obligated to buy any features, services, or options you don't want or need. Don't allow any member of the dealership to intimidate or coerce into do anything you don't want - and feel free to walk away at anytime. Remember, they are there to be of service to you, and while yes they want to sell you as many features, options, and add-ons - you can say always say "no thank-you".

    I hope my "two-cents" was beneficial and feel free to ask questions or offer comments.
  • After getting nowhere from the Michigan Hyundai Dealers who were not willing to budge from MSRP, I went and bought the vehicle I wanted exactly in Chicago. The salespersons name was STEVE WADE (Wade is not his last name but his nickname).

    STEVE is knowledgeable, and a MAN OF INTEGRITY, who treated me like family.

    The dealership he works at is KNAUZ - HYUNDAI, Lake Bluff, Illinois.

    This was the best new car purchase that I personally have ever had !

    Hi folks-
    I am seeking advice on a Hyundai Elantra for my wife who is first time driver. We went to CarMax yesterady and test drove a 2010 Elantra SE (4 door), 2WD with 22K miles on it. It still has an active 5-yr warranty on it. The car did well on the test drive. There is some wear on the tires, although we were told that it passed Maryland standards. The (infamous) 'No Haggle' price is 13,998. With the addition of the sales tax, fees, etc the price out the door is 15,500.

    Could you please give me some feedback on whether this is a reasonable price to pay?

    Thanks a lot!

  • my advise is to invest a couple of more thousand and get a 2013 GLS. It has more features and feel is great compared to 2010. In MD, you should be able to get the vehicle OTD 18500, may be a couple of hundred dollars more depending on the dealership location. Hyundai had a low apr with $500 rebate for all customers last month. I am not sure if the promotion is still around. I am sure great promotions about to come around the holidays/new year. If you can wait, wait. 2010 Elantra SE is not bad either. It's just a matter of $18,500 vs $15,500 and 2013 vs 2010.

    Absolutely agree...go with a brand new one if possible. Carmax has high prices to begin with...way too high! Buy new and get all the latest features and a car with no history. I've done both the used and new route and think the new route is the way to go unless $ is a big issue. Right now I drive a '06 Civic which I bought new and even though I also wanted a used luxo car that had like 20k on it for about the same price, am very glad I didn't go that route.
    Please, think very carefully on this before you pull the trigger as the new Elantra is such a better car!

  • Hi. I agree with what the other two posters said. Besides, there have been lots of reports of bad transmissions with the 2010 Elantra's. And I'm one of them, my 2010 Elantra tranny went out two months after I bought it new.
  • Guys,
    bought 2013 Elantra GLS A/T without additional features for OTD price $17200. Do you think I got a great deal?
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    is this the elantra without the preffered package and just the gls with auto??what was the price before TTT....
  • Steven, yes its without the preferred package, just GLS with Auto. Not sure what you mean by TTT Price. It cost me $17200 in total, including all taxes, fees and interest charges for 36 months @ 0.9% rate
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    when i asked what was your price before TTT i meant what was your final negotiated price before tax,tag,and title fees...
  • oh ok..sorry, I am new to these terminologies..anyways, final price was $15.5K and then they offered me $500 rebate so it was $15K
  • docmddocmd Posts: 6
    17200 OD sounds like a very good price. I have a quote for the 2013 Elantra GLS with the preferred package (automatic) for 18200 (OTD). I thought this was a reasonable price and I want to get the car today. Any last minute thoughts and wisdom would be much appreciated.

    Thanks a lot for all your advice.

    Best regards,

  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636

    Hi everyone,

    Please tell me if I got a good deal?

    Hyundai Elantra GLS with:
    1. Preferred package
    2. Carpet floor mats
    3. Cargo net
    3. Auto-dimming rearview mirror

    (All of the above were standard on their Elantras and so I couldn't find just a base model.)

    for Base $18,000 + TTL + 2.9% financing with $500 rebate which came up to about $20,457.40


    P.s. They told me it was tinted but it turned out not to be so they'll do that for free.
  • Hi there cwoods97. Is the price 22,200 before taxes and doc fees? What did you get as your final price before taxes and doc fees? Would you mind breaking down the price? Like what your price including destination fee and options was, then documentation fee and if that document fee is the title stuff or just the dealers doc fee, any rebates (and not the tax since we all have different state taxes). Thanks so much for your help.
  • temp3temp3 Posts: 1

    Folks- I just picked up my Elantra GLS 2013 today. It is an auto transmission and black in color. I got the preferred package on it. Extra options were auto dimming with home link and ipod cable. The sticker price was 19670. I got two rebates ie the financing through Hyundai one and the other was something they called a competing car rebate. My other car is a CRV. At the end of the day, the OTD price was 17545. I was quite happy with the purchase and did almost all of the negotiating through email.

    I found a lot of useful advice from this forum and wanted to share my experience.
