It included destination. It included everything but Tax, Title, and Licensing. I have no problem telling you who it was. We bought it at Patrick Hyundai in Schaumburg. They were also great to deal with. The other dealerships in the area (except 1) would not/could not match it. We decided it was worth the drive to Schaumburg rather than the other dealer because Patrick seemed pretty much no-nonsense. They gave me a great internet quote and itemized it on request. Then, when we got out there, it was pretty much just to test drive "Our" Santa Fe and complete the transaction.

Uh, yes!! Bet they have 1 on the lot just to get you in the showroom and then the old "bait/switch" starts. Anything under $20K seems like a great price......even with the $2500 incentive. Truecar.com says anything under $22.3K BEFORE incentives is a great price. You do the math....
#2653 of 2979 2009 SantaFe Limited with Navigation??
Dec 22, 2009 (8:22 am)
Okay,where are all the end of the year steals I keep hearing about? We want a new white 2009 limited FWD with the navigation package and beige leather interior. The best deal I have found (and I have shopped around a lot) is $ 28,600 OTD.
Yes, I know that includes all tag, taxes and dealer fees but I still feel this is a higher price than I expected when I began my search. Any input from you seasoned hyundai shoppers? We really need the navigation package and don't want to stick an add on there so I know we are seeing a higher price due to that option but still I would love find better deal.
I will say the sales people have been very nice to deal with but where are the eoy specials people rave about?

I started my pricing search by emailing local dealers, then spread out to some regional ones, then a little further out from there. Make sure that you are using email to get your pricing. I also tried the American Express and Costco pricing (although they were both higher priced).
Actually, with the Navigation, that price does not look bad to me at all. What price were you hoping for?

Actually, it is a good price. But, I guess what I am saying is that I believe that my price could have been negotiated any time in the year. I had just always heard that if you wait until the end of month (specifically the end of Dec.) the deals are crazy.

Just made a deal. Bought basic model - 2009 Santa Fe GLS, A/T, FWD for $18,395 + taxes and fees (after $2500 factory rebate). OTD price is $20,600. MSRP for the car is $24,065. Just want to know if it was a good deal?

I just agreed to a deal with a northern VA Hyundai dealer for a 2009 FWD Santa Fe Limited - 5 passenger, with a tow hitch for just under $23K, delivery, processing and tags, and taxes (3.2% in VA) put me exactly at $25K out the door.
Seems to me to be a lot of SUV for the money. My only real main concern buying a Hyundai is the poor resale value but I figured between the much lower starting price and the fact that I plan on keeping it for quite a few years it was the right call. I also think the resale #'s for Hyundai are going to improve since they seem to be making cars now on par with the competition.

I just purchased this vehicle with navigation, bluetooth, cargo tray and net, and floor mats for $26,565 BEFORE the incentive. OTD price was $23, 941 and included the incentive, taxes, title etc and a $5000 trade-in.. McDonald's Hyundai in Littleton, Co was the dealership and they were wonderful. While there I got a chance to test drive the new 2010 Tucson and all I can say is WOW!
#2659 of 2979 2009 Santa Fe Limited - FWD $24,300 in NW
Dec 29, 2009 (4:30 pm)
I wasn't able to negotiate such a great deal in the Seattle/Tacoma area. I couldn't get one dealer off of $26,999 for AWD. I did manage to get a price of 26k for FWD with Navigation, but I didn't realize that I would lose the Ipod connection. I live for my podcasts, so that was a deal breaker. We transferred that negotiation into a FWD and it was 24.3k before tax and license. Not bad, but I would love the 1k savings that are happening in other states.
#2660 of 2979 Santa Fe SE - Hampton Roads, VA
Dec 29, 2009 (6:46 pm)
I just purchased a SE at Priority Hyundai in Chesapeake. Only included package with floor mats, mud guards, cargo net and rear cargo tray. Invoice was $26,035. I got them down to $23,305, then got the $2000 rebate and $3500 for my trade in. Out the door price was $19,031. The salesman was really nice, but the general manager was a bit of a jerk. He didn't like the deal so he tried to get me to take $1200 for my trade in (2000 Xterra, which wasn't in the best condition). In the end, he gave me the $3500 but not their special "Priorities for Life," which included oil changes and manicures. I think it was an ego thing. He just wanted to feel like he won something. Overall, fairly easy dealership to work with. You have to do your homework on this site, though. This forum was a big help. Thanks!
