Hyundai Santa Fe, SUV
#2873 of 3004 Price paid for 2011 Santa Fe
Sep 01, 2011 (7:36 am)
Sticker price was $28340 for 2011 Limited which was the same as the price posted at hyundai.com on the "build your own" tab. Two rebates-$1000 each-one for using Hyundai Motor Finance-(1.9% on 36 mos). The price of the car on the Bill of Sale showed 26,830.94 plus the taxes(953.07), title(16.50), and a hefty doc fee (399.50)then they subtracted the rebates. Total out the door:$26200.00. I offered $26,000 OTD but they wouldn't budge. Purchased middle of August and the selection was very limited but we got what we wanted. There were a lot of black ones still left around the state but that was about it for the Limited.

I bought it in Houston for 23,00 OTD. 21500 + tax/fee etc.
They don't have SE left but there are still GLS and limited. Negotiated the price on email first. It was very simple - they offered 26K OTD with some nonsense package. I told them my price and they got back to me in a day with my price.
I did finance with them at 1.9% (so this price includes that 1000 rebate)
No additional option except for floor mat, cargo stuff and the glass are tinted.

We just picked up our 2011 Sante Fe Limited that listed for 28305. and we got it for 23884. We did get a rebate of 1000 for using Hyundai Motor Credit. We used the Consumer Reports/Zag buying service and the dealer did not even make a comment, or try to up the price because of the buying service. I showed them the CR price and they honored it and even took the 1000 rebate off on top of the CR price. I kept waiting for the floor to fall out from under me, and on top of that we got a free 32" TV. I am still driving the car with caution because of all dealer distrust. I can say that the dealer was great and helpful.
I hope the rest of my service and experiences go just as well.

I hope you meant to say 23,000 OTD.
Are you sure it is SE model with v6 engine? According to Hyundai web site, santa fe SE has MSRP 27,000 without any accessories. It is incredible the dealer gave almost $6000 discount on this suv. Could they sell at a loss?
I was looking at the Rav4 and honda CRV. Local dealers practically want to sell right at MSRP.

Does your limited santa fe have 2.4L or 3.5L V6? Does it come with any additional package?
I don't know which state you're at; and state sale tax varies. What is you OTD?
I read in certain states, people has to pay $400 for dealer doc fee. But they have lower tax rate. In CA, dealer preparation fee is only $55. Yet sale tax is 9%.

Actually it was the limited Santa Fe and the price with the 4 cylinder was 23884 plus 3% sales tax and 499. fee (Unfortunately) which meant otd was 25282. We too looked at the CRV & Rav4 but the top models were way too expensive to be within our budget, around 28000 if not more with tax and fees. The thing that totally amazed me was that we did not have to discuss, fight over price. They accepted the CR price report and we are pleased so far.

Our limited is the 2.4L and the only things added were little things like mats, cargo tray & cargo net. It did not have and we did not want the navigation system,(Garmin's are so much cheaper). The sales tax is 3% in our area and unfortunately a $499. fee (totla rip-off) . We even tried to negotiate this because we did not have a trade in. Our 2006 CRV was totaled so had good down payment. OTD was 25282 which was cheaper than a CRV or RAv4.

I'd glad you had a smooth experience buying the santa fe. I went to a local hyundai dealer. the sales manager was so rude when I offered my OTD to him. He asked me to never go back to his dealership again. I almost gave up buying the santa fe and looked into rav4 or CRV.
Do you recall the msrp of your santa fe limited?

Yes, I still have the sticker and the MSRP was 27195 plus del for 795 and the options were a total of 315 which were carpeted mats, cargo net, cargo tray and 1st aid kit. I had the same rude experience with the toyota dealer even after telling them we needed to replace a totaled car.

Yes it is SE with V6. I don't believe SE comes with anything other than V6. The v6 really is great specially in a stop and go situation. I drove v4 and it is just very very different feel (again in a stop and go situation like going to drop off kids, picking up stuff locally.. on highway probably not a big diff).
The dealer in houston - ron carter - had number of them and generally was haggle free as we settle the price on email in one/two days.
6000 discount from MSRP includes some sort of financing cash back to dealer from hyundai and probably some other cash back. As far as Texas go, 23K OTD price is not that great for SE V6. Literally I spent may be 1 -2 hours emailing back and forth over and no other effort was needed. If you are in Texas and picking up from Houston is an option, I feel you can get a better deal with more effort
