Black 2001 GLS 5 speed, $10,800. plus a $500 rebate.
Got up early friday to go through the paper and typed the VIN numbers in online to find my black 5 speed and then ran down to the dealer to buy the car. It's a loss leader car which is a car they advertise really low to get people into the dealerships on the weekends so they can tell them the cars are sold or show them other cars (which is where they make their money back). The sell loss leaders below invoice price.
I am starting to get a little jealous ... <img src=/images/forums/snitz/oogle.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>
I paid about 17,000 for my 2001.5 Elantra GT, but it came fully loaded including an appearance addendum. All that means is that they put an extra coat of clear-coat and pinstripes which makes it look shiny all the time… Did I pay too much? I am happy with the car, but I feel like I am paying an arm and a leg for it.
I paid $10,900. Fully loaded except for power moonroof and automatic transmission. I haggled with him for 5 hrs and went to 3 dealerships getting quotes and having other dealerships beat them. Talk about cheating the system<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> I even had them throw in a cargo net, pinstriping and 11 free oil changes, but the salesman got fired a week later. Too many good deals I guess.
Drdol. 17,000 does sound a bit steep, but that extra clear coat addition may be worth it (if you are a clean car person like me <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>). They go for around 15,000+ here. You have to also remember how high the demand for them is in your area. If they are selling like hotcakes, then the dealer will jack up the price and there is little you can do about it to get it cheaper.

I live in Southern California, and I pretty much ended up paying sticker price for my car. I am only 21, so I had a feeling I would somehow get ripped off. Next time I've learned my lesson...make sure you get a loan approved BEFORE you go into the dealership (or pay in all cash), if you're gonna try to negotiate. After taxes, license, and registration, mine ended up probably somewhere around $17K, but the dealer didn't charge me anything extra for putting "Perma-Seal" on my car's exterior/interior.
My dealer was pretty cool. I got a '02 gls
for 11500 befpre taxes after it was 12500.
My girlfriend went to the same dealer and paid just as little for hers as I paid for mine.
I am going back there for my next car.

Jeez, I'm not so sure about my deal now, eh! I got my '02 GT for $15,395 + tax at McDonald Hyundai in Littleton, CO. Of course that was with the ABS, sunroof and every option except the slushbox. The dealer even through in tint and clear mask on the hood. The GT's are hard to find around here so the dealers can pretty much name the price. Probably lucky to have gotten it for less than MSRP.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/approve.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

<hr width=60% noshade size=1 align=left>OOps! I broke it again... Damn
I friggin' LOVE Elantra wagons! I bought my '01 Elantra GLS in early '01, and got everything but the abs/traction option. With all told, tax and all, metro NY area, VIN etching, theft and interior fabric warranty, plus a 4 year tire/rim warranty it was $16, 100. I haggled with them for a few hours, got a nice monthly payment with very little down.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0> I tell ya, if this car DOES go over 150k, they WILL have a lifelong customer! (just a diff dealer, these guys' service sucks!)

apb: for NY area...I'll soon be starting a business for sport compact cars- services will include perfomance modifications, as well as general upkeep..Look for a website in the future!
I paid $15300 for my GT, with sunroof, abs, and stick. I had to wait for a little bit for one with stick. I almost died when I found out how much my boss paid for his GT though, $14400 with auto and sunroof. But I drove through the dealer's lot everynight, and his was there for over 2 months, they put these ugly ass pinstripes on it with the "h" logo on the fenders. My dad even test drove that one about a month before my boss bought it. I didn't really have the option of shopping around because GT's are really rare around here, even rarer with stick. So as it was said before, the dealers can pretty much name their price on them because they're a new model and rare.
$14,350 out the door for my Pewter GT. Included; cargo net, floor mats, mud gaurds, 5spd. manual, moon roof, plus standard features. My advise for anyone looking for a new car is to shop online first...try carbuyingtips.com<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>
