: 2010 Elantra or 2010 Forte?

09-25-2010, 01:46 AM
Time has come to replace the XD2, and the GF and I are debating our choices. It's pretty much down to a 2010 Elantra Limited or a 2010 Forte Koup SX. Details later. We went to the Hyundai Dealership, and were pleased with the service. The only thing is that the sale that is convincing us to buy ends at the end of this month, so we need to decide SOON. Currently, the Elantra is 0% financing for 84 months, the Forte is 0% for 60 months but with the first 3 payments covered by Kia. I want the Forte Koup (newer/better engine), but the wife wants the Elantra (lower payments/what she knows).

I need opinions. We originally had the Genesis Coupe on the list, but it's too much more expensive than what we pay now. :(

So far with us only having been to the Hyundai dealership, we don't know what Kia will offer. Hyundai has a $800 package that includes 36 months of road hazard tire repair, 20 free oil changes, free tires for as long as we own the Elantra, as well as other things I forget.

Dont mess with the free tires thing unless you don't care about handling or what crap tire they give you.

Personally, I'd have to go with the newer engine that gets better mileage. Calculate what you might save in fuel per month

Forte. And you said GF and wife. I hope you're not talking about two different women. lol Which one is it?

Neither, wait a couple months and buy the 2011 Elantra. Done.

And... what for a Forte Sedan ?

James... IMO, the choosed the 2010 'cause it'll be way cheaper than the 2011...

Lol, same person exdtuner.

Super, my current car's registration comes up in November, and repairing it and paying the highway robbery fees for out-of-province inspections is not an option. These deals are for Sept. only.

I'm not interested in a Forte sedan. Boooorrriinnngg.

Silentwolf, the Forte Koup gets worse mileage than the Elantra.

Just drive around without it registered. Problem solved!

If its the 2.4 in it then ya. More power n displacement. Wasn't sure if Canada was gonna get jipped on the Forte and not get the 2.4.

Well, what cars do you have now and will continue to use?

09-25-2010, 12:25 PM
Currently we have the 'lantra and the GF's 99 Sable (blech)

I'd go out and test drive both cars and really "feel" them for yourself. Then decide. I still say Forte though.

09-25-2010, 02:00 PM
All things equal, I'd choose the newer design (Forte). At 0% on both, the longer loan is the better one - but 7 years is a damn long time to finance a car.

09-25-2010, 02:32 PM
I didn't know you could finance a car for that long honestly. I thought 72 months was the longest.

And which one is going to be traded in?

And the HD Elantra isn't Boooorrriinnngg?

My opinion is (in order):
1. Forte Koup
2. Forte Sedan
3. 2011 Elantra
4. 2010 Elantra

^Agreed with your order... Maybe the #2 and #3 would be upsidedown... maybe not... Would have to road test both.

Forte 2.4L hands down.

09-26-2010, 07:56 AM
id go with the forte

09-26-2010, 08:15 AM
i just dont like the interior of the koup...its looks/feels cheap to me. it looks nice on the outside though. I would try and hold off...if you really cant then the elantra would be my bet.

I just drove a rental Aveo for 1200 miles over the course of a week. Get one of those, ballin'!

Seriously man, somehow wait it out until the new Elantra.

Looks like we are waiting. Hope fixing the XD2 doesn't put me in the poorhouse.
