I would advise patience, for a couple more weeks anyway. I caught wind from a Hyundai rep that the 2011 Santa Fe will have some new lines. It will still be based on the same platform. But they are stamping out some new sheetmetal for it to bring the appearance more in line with the Tucson. The interior is supposed to be about the same as the 2010 as are the trim levels and powertrain options. And it will offer some new colors too. It is not a complete redesign. Instead they are calling it a "refresh". And they say the prices will stay about the same too. The official date for announcement is set for October 15. Think about it...if it were identical to the 2010, why don't you see anything official on it yet? They are really keeping this hush-hush. I guess we shall see here soon.

Depends on which state you live in. Here in high-tax California, it'll be 8.75% Tax plus Registration. Currently, getting $1000 Rebate on the GLS 4-cyl Auto, so total cost of $22,790. They are basically eating your tax bill, which here would be $1,994.12. Pretty good deal, I'd say.

Looking for a base model GLS 2011 Automatic In Oklahoma.
Have managed to beat one dealership down to a price of $21,500 + $149 doc fee .. total out the door $21,649 ...
Anyone think there might be a little more blood to squeeze out of the stone ... or should I grab it and run.

Nope - no sales tax .. but we gotta pay 3.25% of purchase price in Excise tax + $91 registration fee within 30 days of purchase at local DMV. So it will in fact work out around $800 more when all is paid and registered.
Got to within $349 of my target price with one dealer last night (just a quibble about my trade-in .. but I know i'll get this price If I speak to the other dealers on Monday) .. looks like there are cars out there - just wait and see who wants to make the deal now I guess .. I'm hoping to have in in my driveway by Tuesday

i just bought my first new vehicle.
painful humiliating process. won't ever buy again from any dealer.
hyundai santa Fe AWD SE v6 (no package. just iPod accessories and floor mats)
$23,600 + 200 (window etching) + TTL + Hyundai financing (3.99 or 4.99% )
I think there was room for more negotiation.
note: you need to pay $2k more for 10yrs warranty, else Hyundai only gives 5/6yrs warranty + 10yrs for powertrain
You can PM me for more info

"note: you need to pay $2k more for 10yrs warranty, else Hyundai only gives 5/6yrs warranty + 10yrs for powertrain"
If you got had for a 2K warranty beyond Hyundai's excellent 5 year comprehensive, 10 year powertrain, you must have really been pressured at the dealership. See if there is anything in the fine print to get out of that. It is a really bum deal.
The Hyundai warranty is EXCELLENT and best in class. That extra 2K is pure profit for your dealer - you will be lucky if you get a dime out of it.
Paying for window etching was also a bad idea. Sorry man - it looks like they really worked you over.

You DON'T need to pay anything more for extended warranty, that's almost like a scam. Read the fine print, you have at least 30 days to ask for a FULL refund for those $2k. Just make a letter and bring it to the dealer, they cannot refuse.
We went through the same process, the dealer said that the only way to receive the 5% rate, back on Sep/2007, because our poor credit score, was to sign the extended warranty... yes, the whole process was humiliating. We accepted the deal then, but 4 days later the dealer took our letter with no problem. We got FULL refund.
You can do research just to learn that the dealer get 50% commission, the other 50% goes to the company that gives the warranty, so do the math.
DON'T BUY EXTENDED WARRANTY. Our Santa Fe has now 52.000 miles, no major issues. Last week we brought it to the dealer because it had a problem with a low voltage sensor, that was replaced with no cost. Other than that, our vehicle has had no problem at all. We bought it in Houston, TX
