#2858 of 3003 2011 Hyundai Santa Fe SE
Jul 24, 2011 (6:47 pm)
Just purchased a new SE. Had a great buying experience at Allen Hyundai in Laguna Niguel, Ca.
MSRP of vehichle $27,775
Discount of $2,275.00
Doc prep $55.00
Sales tax $1,980.52
dmv, license, ca tire, etc $304.75
Rebates of $2,000.00
Net Price before financing $25,840.27
The overall "discount" on the vehicle was $4,275.00 (2,275 plus 2,000 in rebates) with the only stipulation being that I must finance at least $7,500 with Hyundai Finance. Finance rate is 2.9%. I was told I could pay off my loan balance after I make at least 6 payments without a prepayment penalty.

avoid brad Benson dealership.
Google for the reviews. I could not believe that i could relate every comment online to my experience.
Avoid NY city dealerships. They have low inventory and lie to an unbelievable level.
I bought awd SE v6 for 23.5k + tax.

I bought from Brad Benson.
They are harsh and rude. Online reviews about them are very true.
Pls be careful on ...
Our price = Negotiated amount + tax
They agree to it, but they do it this way..
MSRP + tax - negotiated discount.
This way you pay more.
They sneak in VIN etching fee.
They lie that this saves on insurance. But, truth it only saves you on Comprehensive insurace
(thats just few dollars)
After hours of negotiation, you agree on the price. When you goto the Finance Mgr,
they show you a different pricing documentwhere they can easily sneak in a pricing component.
Finance mgr would easily lie to you that you have to buy Service agreement + Loan insurance etc.
Hyundai financing does not mandate above purchases.
See the car in day light before you buy. I trusted them i found next day morning that it had a
Visit dealership post lunch. Assume the process will take 5 hours.
Make sure you get the sticker from the car. Make sure you double check the accessories are installed.
Santa FE has vent problems for few years now. rear vents throw cold air for about 20 mints in Winter
and hot air in Summer.
Don't buy Hyundai. Spending few thousand dollars more on Toyota or Honda are worth the quality of the

Go to Dealer rater.com and look at Lester Glenns rating, it speaks for itself. Benson had numerous negative experiences.
#2865 of 3003 Price of Sante Fe offered
Aug 04, 2011 (6:53 am)
I was offered a FWD (or 2wd)Sante Fe GLS (standard base) for $21,000 out the door price(this does not include state taxes and fees but i do not consider that the price of car at dealer)
This includes my rebates and incentives, no trade in.
Is this worth it? I was hoping to bring him down to 20,500 he said no way, 21k is a great deal?

A dealership in NJ is quoting me 27,379 OTD with all fees, tax, plates.
MSRP is around 29 k and with all the discounts total is 27,379.
Is this a fair deal?

Did you check the dealer out on dealer rater.com? If you're buying a car there's more to it than price if you ask me. How's their service area, is it clean, big, any customer complaints? Do they have loner cars?
