You are in the Hyundai Santa Fe
What is this discussion about?
Hyundai Santa Fe, SUV
#172 of 224 I am a new Hyundai Santa Fe 2004 owner
Feb 11, 2004 (4:54 pm)
Recently, my old 2002 Huyandai Santa Fe was wrecked by a drunk driver. The insurance company had to total the cost of the vehicle. I had to buy a new 2004 Huyundai Santa Fe for myself. I was pleased with the handling of the road of my old one. I bought a brand new one and its riding ability is incredible. I'm very pleased with my purchase and the dealer made a great offer which was too good to refuse. I'm happy that I did choose the Santa Fe, my brother was right it's a wonderful car to drive.
#173 of 224 Hyundai 2004 gas mileage?
Feb 17, 2004 (6:32 pm)
Purchased a 2004 Santa Fe Lx with 3.5 v6 4wd.
I really love the car. Fully loaded, had running boards and wood grain installed.
Price was great (I think), paid 23,900 after $1,000
rebate. (New york price)
My only disappointment is the gas mileage.
I have been getting about 11 mpg in local driving.
Is this right or is their a problem?

I'm working with a dealer for an '04 3.5L AWD w/moonroof. With rebates, loyalty and him giving me 500 below invoice, I've got him down to just under 18,500. Do you think I should go ahead with it?

I think that's a hell of a deal. Does it include destination charge?

That does include the destination charge. I always get cold feet when buying a new vehicle. Wondering if I'm getting a good enough deal. I just don't want to get ripped off.
#177 of 224 PURCHASING - good buy!

I assume that's a GLS AWD 3.5?
If so, that's almost too good to be true. It's a very, very good price. Is it a demo? Because, according to Edmunds, the invoice price on this configuration is $22,182 after the rebate (which appears to be $1250, not $1000, right now).
I'd be worried, too. I'd be asking if the vehicle was damaged in transit or something.

triplec, that's a great price for the 3.5. so great that I want to know where you got it!

I'm trying to get the GLS 3.5 AWD from St. Joseph, MO. The dealer started me at the invoice price, then too 500 off that, then 1250 rebate, 1000 loyalty (2000 Elantra), and 2500 for my trade-in. So we are just under 18500. He's working on the interest rate now. I should hear something today. This vehicle is for the wife. She wants this SUV bad...w/moonroof. They will deliver it to my doorstep and free service (oil, etc.) for first 2 years and give us a car during that time.

Now I see the whole picture with the trade-in mentioned:)
If you're happy with the trade-in value (are you??)then go for it. That would make your price before the trade-in $21,000.

I could probably get about 3000 if I sold it myself, but didn't have time to hassle with it. It's a 2000 with 93,000 miles on it. Does it look like I'm making out alright in this deal?
