That may or may not be a good price for a year old car, (2 years old in just 2 months). I would respectfully remind the dealer of that fact. The $1,750 incentive is available on ALL Santa Fe's, even 2005's. (Check the Hyundai web-site - www.hyundaiusa.com - I'm not very satisfied with the way Hyundai in doing business in this area. I tried to get an honest price for a 2005 Santa Fe that was equipped about the same as yours. My potential buying experience was a disaster and I couldn't wait to get out of there. That was just 2 weekends ago. This past weekend I went to another Dealership (Not Hyundai). Wow , what a difference. Great car, Fair price, Super incentives and Financing. Everything fully explained and no hassels. I think you might be able to guess where I purchased my new car. Hyundai had there chance to get me as a customer and they blew it!!!!
As to the Red Color - The paint on the Hyundai's is NOT noted for quality - However I'm from the old school and believe that the clear coat finishes are not a reason to discontinue caring for the paint with a good quality wax. I wax my cars twice a year and they don't fade and normal cleaning is much easier. Just my thoughts.

There is no down payment required so long as you are financing less that 125% of invoice.

I just bought a 2005 Santa Fe LX FWD with roof rails and mud guards for $23,904 + TTL. (It would have been $22,404, but I chose the 0.0% financing over the rebate). Love everything about the car so far, especially the Mocha Frost exterior and beige leather interior!
#212 of 2973 NEW SANTA FE
Jun 28, 2005 (5:27 pm)
I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT THE SANTA FE FOR ABOUT 2 YEARS NOW. I OWN A 2001 SONATA (4-CYL) THAT I REALLY LOVE. PICKED UP MY BAND NEW SANTA FE TODAY, AND GOT WHAT I FEEL WAS A DECENT PRICE. 2005-GLS-FWD-2.7 CYL ENGINE. PRICE WAS $17,229--OUT THE DOOR PRICE $18,600 TAX (7%) TITLE, PLATE, AND ALL FEES. I QUALIFIED FOR THE $1,00 REBATE, PLUS $2,500 OWNER LOYALTY. SOMEHOW, I GOT $5,195 OFF MSRP. IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, TRY TO GET THEM TO TAKE THE REBATES OFF OF THE STICKER RATHER THAN THE MSRP GOT THIS AT BOWSER HYUNDAI (NEAR PITTSBURGH). COCHRAN HYUNDAI (ANOTHER LOCAL DEALER) GAVE ME AN OTD PRICE OF $18,800, BUT BOWSER'S IS A LOT CLOSER TO MY HOME. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THIS SOUNDS LIKE A DECENT DEAL.

SO SORRY FOR THE WRONG INFO IN MY LAST FORUM. I MEANT TO SAY, TAKE THE REBATES OFF OF THE INVOICE PRICE, BUT I ACCIDENTIALLY SAID THE STICKER PRICE. ALSO THE REBATES WERE $1;500 AND $2,000 (OWNER LOYALTY. I ALSO WONDERED HOW THEY COULD GIVE ME SO MUCH OFF. DID A LITTLE MATH AND FIGURED OUT THAT ON THEIR BOOKS THE SUV SOLD FOR ABOUT $400-500 OVER INVOICE. ALL OF THE REBATES ARE CHARGED TO THE FACTORY, PLUS THEY GET THE 2% HOLDBACK WHEN THEY SELL THE CAR, PLUS THE KICKBACK FROM THE FINANCE COMPANY, PLUS THE FACT THAT THEY NO LONGER HAVE TO PAY THE INTEREST ON THE LOAN WHEN THEY TOOK DELIVERY OF THE VEHICLES. IF I AM WRONG IN CALCULATING THESE FIGURES, PLEASE CORRECT ME. I AM MORE THAT SATIFIED WITH THE VEHICLE. IT RIDES ALMOST AS SMOOTH AS MY SONATA. I CHECKED OUT SEVERAL OTHER CAR-BASED SUV'S (CRV-RAV-4), BUT THE INPUT FROM OTHER OWNERS AND THE RATINGS IN CONSUMER REPORTS CONVINCED ME TO BUY THE SANTA FE. A CAR-BASED SUV IS SUPPOSED TO BE LESS TROUBLE FREE AFTER 3 YEARS, THAN ALL OTHER TYPE OF VEHICLES. CRASH TESTS ARE GOOD AND THE MILEAGE IS ABOUT THE SAME AS MOST VANS AND OTHER SUV'S. I GOT THE 2.7CYL AND FWD, BECAUSE THIS CUTS OVER 500 LBS. FROM THE WEIGHT. ALSO I READ SOMEWHERE THAT 73% OF SANTA FE'S ARE FWD ONLY.

I'm about to pull the trigger on the same Santa Fe from Bowser as well. I think I'm getting a similar deal, but I'd love to know the details. I'm getting $2K Dealer rebate + $2K owner loyalty and I believe that brings me down to around $19K. I've got a trade-in for $1.4K + some money down. I'm just trying to figure out if I can bargain down to try to get an OTD of $18.6 before any equity of my own is involved.
