Thanks to all with the wonderful updates. I have a 2010 ET bought new in 09. At about 23K the trans would slip than shift hard between 2nd and 3rd. Took it tothe dealer and no questions asked they said HYUNDAI wanted to see the trans and they would give me a "new" one (I wonder if "new" is a refurb). Around 45K the trans started doing the hard shifts again ... Read More
I've been lurking in this thread. You're right. You should have never had problems with the trans on a brand new car. I hope you get it all worked out. But when I look at hyundai and kia discussions, I can see this is not uncommon for them. An automatic transmission is not a new thing. It is actually a pretty simple device and building a quality one in a new ... Read More
Great that you have good experience with one. Consumer Reports survey stats don't think much of them as a used car, though. They do recommend other Hyundai makes such as the Elantra and Sonata. I'd go with something else that has a better track record.
My 2010 elantra with 48500 miles on it needs a new transmission. And Hyundai tried to give a hard time replacing it.
I started by contacting Brandon Florida Hyundai this past Friday night on my way home from work, I was driving so I didn’t write down the “Internet Manager” name I spoke with at 1800 hours, he promised a callback with numbers on an Elantra base within 15-30 minutes, guess what no callback so I start on Saturday morning by contacting the GM Dan Norris who runs a TV ad saying if ...

The discussion centers around the current generation Hyundai Elantra, which bowed for the 2011 model year, not the previous generation such as your 2010 model. Still, that's a lot of additional expense and trouble, using fuel additives AND high octane gas, to just match the kind of mileage my 2006 Civic easily achieved buzzing along at 3000 rpm and 80-plus MPH on the highway with ARCO 87 octane fuel and a ...

Bought a Certified Used 2010 Hyundai Elantra in Oct of 2012 and now just 4 months latter it needs a new transmission! It only has 32K miles on it. When I went to buy this car I did extensive research and nowhere did they mention this problem. I am very disappointed with the car reviews out there. I drive 27 miles each way to work on a mountain road and need ... Read More
Last tank update: 2011 Elantra GLS Auto with 22650 miles. Indicated mpg (dash display): 34.8/pumped refuel average 33.1 mpg Average mph: 28 mph (mostly city driving) Display seems to be consistently about 2 mpg "optimistic." I could not be happier with my Elantra. It's roomier, quieter, more efficient and better looking (subjectively, I know) than my wife's 2010 Civic EX. I would recommend this car to anyone and I have. Question ... Read More
You dont always get what you pay for. A lot of times you pay for the name. Hyundai is just as good as honda and toyota. Honda and toyota are very good but overpriced. The new hyundais got a better rating than both honda and toyota. Even used hondas and toyotas are too expensive.
I only saw this post now because I just bought a 2010 hyundai elantra last week. What the hell is your damn problem snapping at people because you dont like to hear reality. ANYTHING CAN HAVE A DEFECT. WHAT PART OF THAT SENTENCE DONT YOU UNDERSTAND. When my dads tranny crapped out in 1 year, it WAS a defect. And it never happened again. You happened to get a defective tranny ... Read More
You are stubborn if you think everything is perfect. ANYTHING CAN HAVE A DEFECT. You just got a defective transmission. My dad bought a brand new ford van in 1984 and the transmission crapped out at 11,000 miles. My mom bought a 2006 toyota highlander and the air conditioning broke at 35,000 miles. So that shows that anything can have a defect. You seem to think that nothing should break ever. ... Read More
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.
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 ... Read More
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 ... Read More
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. ... Read More
Did anyone find out what the basic problem is with the 2010 Elantra tranny? Also, basically I like my Hyundai, (not the seats) I'm thinking I want another Hyundai but one with a little more storage space for wen I travel; did they put this same transmission in any of their other models? Anyone know of any other major problems with 2010, 11 Hyundai? Thanks.
Yeah, that sounds about right. I'm getting back about $65 and I have almost 17,000 miles on my car. You're right and I 100% agree. I wouldn't call that a reimbursement either. I'm really starting to be very disappointed with Hyundai. My first Hyundai was a 2010 Elantra in which the transmission blew a month & half after I bought it (brand new) and now this.
A couple of weeks ago I went to the local Hyundai dealership here in northern Virginia to get the heat shield fixed, and they also took care of a couple of recalls. While I was waiting, I was talking to one of the technicians about my old 2010 Elantra (I created this original post about my transmission failing so early) and how the transmission died. He said he wasn't surprised, because ... Read More
I sold my 2010 Elantra Touring to the dealer and purchased a 2013 Elantra GT and I feel so cheated! My 2010 was such a lemon but was not told by service how to turn it in as such. Then it broke down on me after the 60,000 mile warranty went off and all I could do is get rid of it. I wanted the 60,000 mile warranty so went back ... Read More
Its absurd that some posters call others that post real world numbers haters...I will state one more time, this is my 3rd Hyundai in a row, I love the car, it looks great, drives good, I WOULD BUY IT AGAIN...BUT...the gas mileage is no where close to what hyundai states...I may average 25-26 (the computer says 2 mpg better but it is not accurate), I do not drive the best I ... Read More
Well, it was of course Hyundai's fault to mess up on their testing. Hard to fathom that they could have 1) messed up like that, and 2) took so long to find out they messed up. But now that the EPA has run its own tests, any discrepancy between what owners are getting on their Elantras vs. official EPA numbers is either due to how/when/where the car is driven, or the ...

You didn't provide enough information to narrow this down much. You have a wide range of vehicles on your list--from tiny subcompacts (Mazda2) to mid-sized cars with large-car interiors (Sonata and Optima). Think about what's most important to you: fun to drive? ride comfort? lots of passenger room? lots of cargo room? fuel economy? etc. The Fit Sport is a good around-town car if you want something small, fun to drive, ...

We just bought our 3rd Hyundai (1993 Excel drove to 150K, 2002 Elantra, still on the road w 165K). Conflicted between a CRV and a FIT, we decide the CRV too big, bulky, and the FIT too small. We found the Touring and LOVE it. Getting better than expected mileage (32H/26C), we paid $15500+our trade, a 2001 Honda Civic Coupe which had been in two accidents. I think we got a ... Read More
I really like my 2010 Touring and my wife is driving a 1997 Buick she got from her mother, so I went to my local dealership today to see what they could do on a new 2012 Touring, given that it's been discontinued and replaced by the Elantra GT, which looks like a Subaru Impreza and which I really do not care for. Much to my surprise, he said that Hyundai ... Read More
You need to narrow down your list some more, you are all over the map from subcompacts to full-sized cars. Consider your requirements--what is most important to you? Interior room? Fuel economy? Smooth ride? Safety? Handling? Reliability? Some thoughts on each: Nissan Sentra - I have a 2010 2.0S CVT and it's a nice little car: roomy for its size, smooth ride for a small car, can average over 30 mpg ... Read More
I currently own a 2003 Mazda Protege with 153k miles. I've replaced just about everything in it except the engine, but to it's defense it was a former rental car that my parents bought from Enterprise. It also has quite a bit of cosmetic damage from having been hit twice. I think it's just about time for a new car, one of my choosing finally. I'm looking for a sedan (for ... Read More
I have a 09 Elantra with 98000 highway miles. I had the first tranny replaced at 80,000, and the second at 97,000. Both covered under warranty. The first was changed because it shift hard into 3rd gear, the second because when I drove the car more than 25 miles then shifted from drive to reverse, it took 5 seconds to engage in reverse. I sent Hyundai an email asking them to ... Read More
I got to drive the base GT with automatic today. It was an ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE car! I can't see how ANYONE in his RIGHT MIND would buy one!!! OK, have all the prospective GT buyers left now??? ;) Good... I don't want lots of other people driving up demand, and prices, for this great little car! :) There's lots to like about this car. First, the interior quality is at or ... Read More

This is my second Hyundai. My first one was an 2005 Sonata and the second is a 2010 Elantra Blue. I have found on average the manual transaxle get the best fuel mileage. on my 2005 Sonata I was getting 30mpg. The epa said it was getting 23-26. My cousin had the same car just an automatic and he was getting 24mpg. My Elantra Blue is a manual and i'm averaging ... Read More
We bought and 2012 Hyundai Accent se hoping to get good gas mileage. We are averaging about 30 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city. IT'S suppose to get 29-40. We also have a 2010 Hyundai Elantra Blue. I'm averaging about 32-34 mpg overall. I don't drive like grandpa. What's up with that.
I too have been disappointed in my 2011 Elantra Limited's gas mileage. My daily commute is 63 miles one way over a variety of state highways where my speed is generally 60-65PMPH. I traded in a 2010 Honda Civic for this car. The Civic was rated at 36 MPG and I was getting 33-34MPG. My Elantra has been running in the 32-33MPG range over the same course for over 30K miles. ...

The Touring is finished in the US - the i30 is coming to North America as the Elantra GT expected to be at dealers late June/early july 2012 as a '13 model....5 doors, 'sportier' suspension & being marketed as the Elantra answer to enthusiast needs & will compete more directly with Mazda3 5 Door. Details of the vehicle have been released & pricing has not. If I hadn't just finished my ... Read More
as stupid as this sounds...I haven't checked to see if there was an engine change, I would have thought the the transmission change would have been for the better, going from 4 to 6 speeds...

Not sue why you're having less mileage under same driving conditions. Was there an engine change between 2010 and 2012? Even if there was, would expect a bit peppier acceleration with the new engine. I only have one tank on my new Elantra and computer says about 25 mpg. Should have stayed with my 2008 Sante Fe. I could believe the computer and was a much nicer drive.
Look, I read peoples comments before I bought my 2012 Elantra Limited, I saw that many were not pleased with the gas mileage, I have had 2 hyundai's before so I ignored those comments...here is the truth as I experienced it...first, I do totally love my car, and I would buy one again...BUT...the is definetly a gas mileage issue...I have 1800 miles on my Elantra and I DO drive with a ...

I checked out the latest compact hatches at my local auto show today. It's helpful to be able to compare them side-by-side-by-side within a few minutes of each other. The big disappointment today was that Hyundai didn't have the new Elantra GT at the show. But Toyota had the new Prius C available for sitting in. I was not impressed. The interior screamed "cheap", especially the plastics, the rear seat was ... Read More
Rob: I have posted comments on the Buick Lacrosse (2010 CXL with 3.0L) and the Sonata forum commenting on the actual MPG results for both cars. The 2012 Sonata GLS we have delivers BETTER than EPA highway (36-37.5 MPG) at 65-70 MPH. At greater speeds the MPG drops off somewhat less than the percentage speed increase. In the city the mileage is totally driven by the type of driving. All stop ... Read More
I bought my 2010 elantra gls auto in sept 2010 for $14000 +ttl. The prices on the hi mpg cars now are much higher (2012 elantra gls auto for $18500+?). I'm getting prices on 2012 honda civic lx auto of about $16800 +ttl (including doc fee etc). This is about what it has always gone for (in southern ohio) I'm sorry but an elantra gls isn't worth $18500, (a focus $18000?) ... Read More
Has anyone taken a 150 plus highway trip using mainly cruise control within 60-70mph on an Elantra and calculating the mpg? I expect 40mpg with this test (because that is what the ad says) but curious how much higher it goes. If it doesn't break 40mpg, Hyundai definitely should re-test the Elantras or take a page from Honda. Following my driving criteria above, my old 2007 Honda Fit Sport was rated ... Read More
Rephrased - any offer you make should include include all fees prior to TTL. Better yet, any offer you make should include all fees and addons you want prior to TTL. For example, the Hyundai Elantra extended warranty might normally cost you $1,200, but it may cost the dealer $500. If you think you want this, then you'll get your best price at the time you're making an offer. I'd argue ... Read More
I understand current incentives include: 400 MILITARY DISCOUNT - SHOW YOUR ID 500 LOYAL CUSTOMER DISCOUNT - CURRENT HYUNDAI OWNER I'd guess your girlfriend qualified for one/both of these. If I assume just the loyalty discount, then her price was 19,500, which is comparable to the 'fighting chance' result. I tried carwoo.com . Set my zip to Harrisburg PA. Only 2 offers received. Best: 19,988 for limited (mats;cargonet;ipodcable;rearbumperapplique;wheellocks) Wouldn't budge. Had ... Read More

It is clear there are year-end dealer incentives on the Elantra - NOW. I expect to have most success with volume dealers - but don't rule out the smaller ones as they have relationships. My calculations suggest I can get an Elantra for ~90% of MSRP between now and Jan 3rd. i.e. if MSRP is 20,000, then target 18,000. Yes, that is below dealer invoice - but don't worry about them ...

The IIHS Top Picks for 2012 are out and looks like compacts in general scored very well: http://www.iihs.org/news/rss/pr121511.html All the new designs are Top Picks, but the old Sentra missed the cut. Interestingly, the score for the Sentra dropped after 2010 MY even though the design of the car hasn't changed. Even some of the smaller cars got on the list, e.g. Fiesta, Fit, Sonic, Yaris. The new Accent and Rio ... Read More
Well I ended up trading my 2010 one in earlier this year, and got the 2011. Hope you didn't get my 2010 lemon! LOL!!! I'm just kidding, I'm sure it'll be fine. I know it totally sucks, but Hyundai will take care of you. Since my failed on me so early on (and 21K is obviously extremely early, too) Hyundai paid two car payments for me...it was nice. After I got ... Read More
Hi Sam. Unfortunately as you suspect, the only way to avoid paying an excess mileage penalty is to purchase your vehicle at lease-end. What is your vehicle's excess mileage charge? At $0.15/mile you're looking at a charge of $1,350 for going 9,000 miles over your limit. That's obviously a decent chunk of change. You can avoid this charge buy buying your Elantra at lease-end, but you may not want to do ... Read More
Hi Car_man / All, Back in May '10, I leased a Hyundai Elantra ($2495 down, $99.6 monthly payment, 12000 miles, 2 year lease, purchase price of $11,210.85 at the end of lease) I still have 6 months to go w/ lease, and I'm very close to my mile limit of 24000. Wondering if you have any info / links on deciding whether to buy the car at the end of lease, ... Read More
Well said. I also have a 2011 Elantra, and I cannot for the life of me understand some of these people. Enough with the whining. As I said in another thread, if you hate the car that much, trade it in for something else. I am also not buying the "I only get 22 MPG's (or whatever ridiculous number they come up with). That is simply not going to happen with ... Read More
The 2012 Elantras will likely not have enought miles on them to provide a meaningful MPG result. We have already had this discussion on 2011 models. It seems that we will be repeating the problem and discussion here. Since 2011 and 2012 models are the same design, there should be a 2010 and earlier grouping and a 201 and later grouping.
In reverse order .. By federal law you can have your car serviced wherever you like with no impact on your warranty. However, you do need to maintain your maintenance records in the event you need to make a warranty claim. The only potential problem with not using the dealer for service is if the shop you use doesn't use parts/supplies that meet OEM standards; i.e. they use the wrong transmission ... Read More
My 2010 Elantra Touring transmission is failing for the second time! It was replaced at 1800 miles and now the new one is failing! What the? I should have stayed with Toyota!

You have no idea how those Elantras or Civics are being driven. You also don't know what those Elantras are getting as a max on the highway. They could be hitting 40 mpg, or exceeding it. Or not. Fuelly as well as other mileage calculator apps/sites tracks the highs and average mpg and other things. I thought using their stats would be a solid gauge (80 cars for 2011 model) than ... Read More
"How do you know it isn't? How many 2011-12 Elantras have been sold to date? Probably close to 200,000. And how many complaints have you seen re poor fuel economy?" Backy, I use Fuelly and I see eighty 2011 Hyundai Elantras (477k miles tracked). The avg mpg is 31mpg which is exactly the same as the seventy Honda Civics tracked. So if the Elantra used Honda's mpg test methodology, it would ... Read More
Too bad Hyundai can't deliver consistently on the advertised mpg ratings. How do you know it isn't? How many 2011-12 Elantras have been sold to date? Probably close to 200,000. And how many complaints have you seen re poor fuel economy? Averaging 34 mpg on a 2010 Civic isn't too remarkable. Anyone who isn't slogging through city traffic every day and who doesn't have a lead foot can do that. I ... Read More
From my research it appears the Honda Civic gets better MPG with varied drivers. So why buy a Hyundai for better gas mileage?? To a certain degree I do blame the car. I had no idea the tires required 44psi. That sounds like a lot. I needed a car last year and was waiting for the then upcoming Elantra. I was excited that it was a compact sedan that will do ...

I'm (like others) just saying to give it time....you only have 1,000 miles on your car. I just think it's pretty silly to complain about an issue that is so minor, you haven't even broken in the car yet. I had the same complaint as you did when I first bought mine. Have a little patience. But I guess some people just like to whine about something. Last October I bought ... Read More
December 26, 2007 I purchased a used 2005 Hyundai Elantra GTS with 23,000 miles on it. In September of 2008 I took my car in to have the 30,000 mile service done.

That 30/40 rating must have been before the EPA revamped how they rate fuel economy because the 2011 Civic coupe with automatic is rated at 25/36 and there is nothing different about the 2011 from your 07. Taking that into account, your gas mileage looks closer to normal. My 2010 Accent is rated at 27/36. I've never been able to get higher than 33. I don't think having a GDI engine ... Read More

I bought two new Elantra's in 2010 - a Blue manual trans model and a GLS auto. The GLS has 11k miles and just stalled on the road a month ago. After 3 weeks in the shop, Hyundai replaced the engine. The dealer's shop said it spun a main bearing - and said he had never seen that before. Running good now. The Blue has a vibration in the steering wheel ... Read More
Not sure if you've driven many Asian cars, but the Elanta's wiper stalk is very conventional for Asian cars: flip up for mist (one wipe), down one notch for intermittant (with a rotary control to adjust interval), down one more notch for slow wipe, and down one more notch for fast wipe. That's the way most Asian cars including Hyundais have done wipers for many years. I find it very easy ... Read More
The Sorento is a good example of what I was talking about. Kia began selling it in January 2010. Thus they could legally call it a 2011 model, since it debuted in 2010. If they started selling it one month earlier, in 2009, they could not have called it a 2011. Another example is the 2011 Sonata. Hyundai started selling them around Super Bowl time last year--so very early in the ... Read More
We purchased a 2011 Kia Sorento last August, a vehicle Kia had begun selling in January 2010 and called it a 2011. Just the fact that Hyundai is still advertising 2010 Elantras going into the second quarter of 2011 is another reason for my comment. In our are they have more 2010s than 2011s and its not because they can't keep the new elantra on the lot, its because they just ... Read More
Hyundai sold 12,289 Elantras last month, which is 54% more than they sold in February 2010. They are manufactured at the Hyundai plant in Montgomery, Alabama, which is also where they make the current Sonata. They are, quite literally, selling faster than they can build them! Hyundai execs have acknowledged that they plan to import additional Elantra inventory from South Korea to meet the demand. As a long term solution, Hyundai ... Read More
Hyundai started selling the new Elantra in 2010, so it cannot be called a 2012 model. Which Kia models that started selling in 2010 were called 2012 models? I'm not aware of any. For example, the new Optima that rolled out about the same time as the new Elantra is a 2011 model. One reason stocks may be slim is popularity. With 87 octane at $3.55 today in the Twin Cities ...

I purchased a new Elantra GLS with the preferred package for $17000. I was successful in refusing to pay all of the dealer add-on charges, leaving only tax and title plus finance charges at 3.9%.

Wow, so your problem sounds just like mine, except for getting stuck in the snow. lol I bought a 2010 Elantra in early October, and the transmission went a month & half later, at 1800 miles. (I created a post about this in December). The first bad sign was when I took my boss to lunch one day, it took a second or two to get the car in reverse, it ... Read More
Did you mean 2011 Elantra or 2010. Here is the thread for the 2010: http://townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/.f1e9191!make=Hyundai&model=Elantra- &ed_makeindex=.f1e9191
You mean 12/30/10? If your dealer won't investigate these noises, go to a different dealer. Also have you tried contacting Hyundai Customer Service? Does your car have a moonroof?
Hi, I am interested in leasing a 2011 Elantra Limited but after reading some of your comments, I may have to reconsider. My brother leased a 2010 Volkswagen CC last year for $300/month, $0 down, 12k miles/year, 36 months. It seems that it would be unreasonable to lease a $20k Hyundai vehicle for almost the same lease price of a $30k Volkswagen vehicle. Any thoughts? I was hoping to be able ... Read More
Thanks for taking the time to reply to my posting. Your suggestions are really good. I have tried the moisturizer both ways and didn't have very good results with that.

This one seems to be different for some reason. I'm ... Read More
I bought my car on Oct 2, 2010 brand new from the lot. It had a whole 70 something miles on it when I drove it off the lot. It's been over all a good car EXCEPT it's a fire hazzard for me. It has a tons of static electricity in it which I believe to be due to the very cheap material used to cover the seats. My hair which ... Read More
If it's doing that you should note when it's doing it, ie when it's warm, just starting out or all the time. Then take it to the dealer and let them know. Don't accept subpar in your new car. Hyundai has had a reputation for subpar quality. I hope that's changing. But the only way we get them to change is to insist on it. You may also have lemon law ... Read More
Who said the LTZ would be the volume model for the Cruze? No one did. I am glad we can agree on something... Chevy will sell few LTZs. If you personally don't like loaded small cars, don't buy one. I never said I don't like the idea of a loaded small (economy) car. I just don't like the idea of paying $25-27k for one when there are so many other good ... Read More
OTD price from North NJ dealer for Elantra 2011 Limited with Premium Package (fully loaded, wheel locks and floor mats) includes all taxes and fees $23,725.00. I'm considering 2010 Chevrolet Cruz and new 2012 Ford Focus. I think Hyundai dealer was oohm c'mon this is compact car. Please let me know your prices and experience with new 2011 Elantra.
the msrp was a little ove 18000 they had 25% off of msrp sale (which included a 1500 hyundai rebate and 1000 for financing with them.) they said they gave us $1400 for the saturn. when we first started negotiating they offered $425 for it. i told them we wanted to pay 12,5000 out the door after much back and forth we settled on 12,850. They said it was the last ... Read More
We just bought an 2010 hyundai elantra GLS for our daughter it is a automatic. We traded her 1998 Saturn with 120000 miles on it and major problems. Out the door price was $12,850. I think this was a good deal? We did finance $5000 of it through hyundai with a 3.9% interest rate. Did we get a good deal?
Were you planning on doing a trade-in? I am seeing 14K or so for GLS 2010's here in St Louis, so around that price range is a good starting point for negotiating I would think in Chicago. They are currently offering 1500 cash back on (not sure whether they are already factoring that in to that MSRP) But for them to cover tax and tax for 11K total would mean a ... Read More
Of course, your best bet is to take the Elantra for a drive. To try to answer some of your questions... * 4AT. The Elantra's powertrain is a fairly old design, which is good in that it has proven reliable, but is behind most competitors. An all-new car with a much improved powertrain including a 6AT is due for the 2011 Elantra. * I think the SE does handle a little ... Read More
Hi everyone, I am a Chicago resident looking to buy a new 2010 Hyundai Elantra Automatic GLS. I used the truecars.com and cars.overstock.com with a best local price at 14,8xx. I was wondering whether you could negotiate the price lower than the local price by at least a few thousand(2-4k). Tax is going to be a killer, it's like 8.5% in Chicago. Since, it is 2011 I have called up some ... Read More
I just bought a 2010 Elantra GLS two weeks ago and I can easily say this is one the best cars I ever bought. I love the mpg, the handling and the smooth ride. Do yourself a favor and go test drive a Hyundai GLS and SE. Personally, I went with the GLS because the SE has a stiffer ride. They have an amazing amount of interior space and trunk space. ...

Since Hyundai simplified the options available (and the engine is the same at all levels) the MSRP is $16,800USD if you include the Popular Equipment Package. The difference isn't huge... OK, it may be nice to have the proximity entry with push-button start... Still the down-side is you're stuck with the plastic covered steel-wheels. Having said that, we COULD be looking forward to this factory manufactured aero kit (currently only available ... Read More
thanks a lot for your response. I'm sealing the deal this weekend.hoping to get it done between 14300-14700..thanks again
Tax in VA is 3.2%, but is charged on the car price before rebates and on the processing fee, In my case, it came to around $506. According to my calculations, 7% tax on the same transaction would be about $600 more, meaning that $14,500 for you would be equivalent to the deal that I got. Hope you can do better than that -- good luck!
talked to the dealer over the phone and he gave me out of door price of 14700, he didnt give me a breakdown of the price. but I did some research and tax in NJ is 7 % while in Virginia/DC area it is 3% I think I should talk them down to around 14300 or so isnt it. any thoughts?
I owned a 2009 Elantra I noticed the speedometer and the odometer were off within the first few months of owning it. Speedometer was 4 miles faster than I was going and the odometer was recording mileage at a rate of 20% more than actually traveled. This is great for Hyundai their warranty expires 20K miles before it's supposed to. When I took it in to the dealer they said it ... Read More
Where's the Elantra on the latest IIHS Top Picks list? Not there. But its cousin the Forte is there. Also the Optima, which was introduced about the same time as the 2011 Elantra. Meaning Hyundai (and the IIHS) had time to test the car for the latest list. The omission probably means the Elantra didn't make the cut for the Top Picks list. I hope the fact that the IIHS crash ... Read More
"Let's hope you can find a dealer service dept. that will give you good service, more like what Sarah got. " Ive got two dealers in my area for Hyundai...one(the selling dealer) essentially gave up on me and my 2009 Elantra Touring issues, and the other who seems to be more interested in helping me, but havent resolved much of anything( yet).
You get what you pay for.....which is why i don't drive a hyundai
Sarah, I really don't know why you are so defensive and take every little word on the internet as if you have any idea of how the words are being said, but your attitude is not conducive to getting any kind of help. I never once called you a name or suggested anything bad about you, but you ripped into me for suggesting a $16k car isn't perfect. I was merely ... Read More
The Lord had nothing to do with it. And you are twisting what I am saying. I never said you were being unreasonable for expecting a transmission to work in a new car. What I think is unrealistic is your stated expectation that every new car be "perfect". I have a pretty good idea what kind of a person you are also. But I won't say it here. First, I could ...

So what you are telling us is, your 11-year-old car had one part fail, a computer in the transmission (all the rest of the stuff was apparently wear items wearing out), and you got upset about "all the problems" with the car. IMO you got really good service from that Acura, to have one part fail after 11 years. And as I and others here have tried to tell you... NO ... Read More
Yeah, I don't really know what the exact problem was, but I forgot to mention that the car also wouldn't go into reverse at all on Saturday. All in all, I have to say I was very impressed with the quick service...it is a good dealership. They put me in a Sonata loaner for four days..that was nice. To compensate me, Hyundai is paying two of my car payments for me. ... Read More
Anyway, the car is fixed (for now at least). As I said, I know things happen with cars, but when the sticker price of a car is almost $18K, and in this day in age, I expected the transmission of all things not to blow on a brand new car. I was nicely compensated by Hyundai (I raised a stink...and it paid off). Since something like this is very rare, I ... Read More
