#2135 of 2978 Price paid for 2008 Limited FWD in Dallas/Ft Worth
Sep 01, 2008 (1:27 pm)
My husband and I purchased a 2008 white Hyundai Santa Fe Limited with black interior (no navi or touring packages) for $22995 from Van Hyundai in Carrollton, TX today. We also traded in our high mileage 2000 Dodge Durango 4WD for $3000. Our trade-in value matched the amount listed on Edmunds web site. We emailed several dealerships early this morning and had 3 offers by 11am. Each dealer was willing to match the lowest offer. It all came down to how much we could get for our trade-in. We spent less than an hour at the dealership doing the paperwork. We got a loaner car for today and will pick up our new car tomorrow. The dealer had to trade with another dealership to get the car we wanted. I thought the salesman at the dealership was great. Thanks to this forum we saved several thousand dollars. Special thanks to hondamom6 for posting her experience. It was a big help knowing what someone local paid for their Santa Fe and internet car shopping was terrific! We have a baby and we would not have lasted through the typical car buying experience.
#2136 of 2978 Re: Pricing Question on 2008 Limited AWD w/NAV and Touring Packg [player4]
Sep 01, 2008 (2:44 pm)
In Oregon, current ads saying $8k off of MSRP, so $24,395 for the 08 Lmtd AWD with just NAVigation is a given, unless I am missing a dealer magic trick not listed in ad. Generally, Oregon dealers want/demand $250 for doc prep fees, and DMV fees [no sales tax here]. Thanks, and luck with dealers. Some say get the bottom line purchase price by phone/fax/email BEFORE stepping on the lot.
??? Does anyone know when or if the $3500 factory rebate for any 08 SF Lmtd will end as planned today Sept 2nd, or be extended for more time??

I' m considering purchasing an '08 Sante fe limited no nav, fwd, quoted me for $22,500. Houston, texas area. any one been quoted less or think I can get better? They are also offering me $12k for my '07 Elantra on trade which is awesome!!! My credit union is offering 5.9% financing which I'm not too crazy about. reply soon, i 've been car shopping for a while and it's getting old. I am debating also on purchasing a Rav 4 limited which costs $2500 more,from toyota and they are only plus only giving me $10k on elantra trade. Main reason is gas mileage, HELP me decide.

Great price on your Santa Fe Limited. The interest rates went down on September 1 and we got 4.49% for 36 months. Here's our credit union's car loan rates: http://swfinancial.org/rates-autoloans.html. Of course, they fluctuate based on credit scores. Good luck with your car purchase.

That's a great price on the Limited and on the trade. I didn't test drive a Rav4 but I did a Honda CR-V. You just have to decide if you like the Limited better than the Rav4.

it's all about personal perference when it comes between the santa fe, rav4, pilot, mitsu, etc....
i test drove all of those makes/badges... for the money, the santa fe is hands down the winner.. you get sooo much more for your dollars. the rav4 and pilot were extremely utilitarian in ride and amenities
the santa fe currently ranks 3rd on our short list of cars to get, behind 2 luxury brands which were trying to nego... but if they fall through, the santa fe will be in our driveway
#2142 of 2978 Santa Fe Limted purchase price
Sep 02, 2008 (6:31 pm)
Santa Fe Limited FWD with Blue Tooth, Cargo Mat, Wheel Locks, First Aid Kit for $23,648 + TTL. Bought saturday in Cincinnati for what I figure to be $871 under invoice. It was too easy but they only had one of what we wanted (most were AWD with others having NAV) and my wife liked the color. Didn't want to prolong the search any longer. I'd recommend Columbia Hyundai but figure on preping the car yourself as the antenna wasn't installed, tires had 45-50#'s (vs. recommended 32#'s) and glue on the clear plastic headlights. Oh well, glad it's over.

I did it, bought the 08 Limited Santa Fe and LOVE it so far. Cant wait to figure out the mpg' s as soon as I need the first tank of gas. But who wouldn't love a brand spanking new car?! My only minor problem is my tire pressure light is on and when I was thru with signing paperwork, all tech's at dealership had already gone home so I'll have to return car to have them remove/fix warning light. Dealer is even throwing in pin-stripping and free window tint. all for $23,500. I hope mpg is decent, will have to wait and see.

Well I did it I bought the 08 Santa Fe Limited. Their's just NO comparison when you drive it and compare to Rav 4. Much smoother, quieter and just plain out more more more for your money. I like the 18 inch tires, sits up high, the600+ watts stereo with 6 disks, xm, stereo. rear air, standard sunroof,homelink, leather etc.... I just hope mpgs will be decent. Now if I can just figure out how to program the homelink to my garage door, I will be quite HAPPY! Haven't even tried yet, maybe this weekend. Sante Fe just has the look and I love it!
