Picked up my new 2013 Santa Fe Sport AWD 2.0 Turbo on Friday. Copper Canyon exterior and beige interior. Loaded with Leather and Premium and Tech packages along with carpeted mats, rear passenger sunshades, cargo cover, cargo mat, and cargo net. MSRP was $36020 and got it for $33188. They gave me $17500, nearly 2K over the excellent TI value for my 08 SF AWD Ltd. Still owed $8500 for it so once that was added back in and 6% taxes on the diff, and title and tag transfer, I was out the door for $25364. Oh, and the dealership, Blaise Alexander Hyundai in State College, PA, went all the way out to a Hyundai dealership in Aurora, IL to get my new car and didn't add anything to the price to do so! Did virtually all negotiations over the Internet and had selling price and TI value set before setting foot in the dealership. All in all, a great car, a great dealership, and pretty darn good deal without any drama.

What you said make sense in a self-restraining society. People are into abundance and getting what they want, and businesses know it. This is a game of consumer power. It drives prices high for the things they want. Haha, never knew there're still people who would say hat you said. Been told that's the price everybody is paying and nothing's free. Real fair price and free is an ocean apart in definition. I just thought if a well built car cost this much, a lesser built car (performance, quality, etc.) should price as a reflection of its makeup in comparison. The Lexus dealers twice make me really angry about their unwillingness to negotiate. They won't take my MB (low mi, 8 yr) and want 2k over msrp for a sought after model, and then they want msrp or no sale on a 2012 model 2 months ago! That's it with Lexus! They don't exist anymore...if I want to buy Toyota, I'll buy a Toyota and not a glorify Toyota. Besides, after test droving different Lexus (2012 &2013), there's nothing missing if I rule out Lexus altogether. What's all that hype about Lexus??
Test drove some Hyundai yesterday and found the Sante Fe Sports to be ok. For a 4-cyl, turbo that is a pretty ok car. Now people who would shell out that money for a Honda or Toyota would seriously consider it. It's more nimble than the competitors, even with it being a bit floaty at times, it's a car I would definitely consider but not at that price.

I'm from Nj the price I got for 2013 Santa Fe AWD with turbo with leather and tech package only cargo cover, wheel locks and mats was at invoice which was 34,184. MSRP for cargo mat is 95 and net I have no clue. Did you get any incentives military rebate or finance rebates? I am not in military and I plan to pay cash. Feel free to email me at midnightinthemorningyahoo.com

Midnight1958, my deal had no incentives whatsoever, military, finance or any others. The dealership I bought from gave me a great price right out of the chute via internet/emails and didn't try to embellish it with any extra add-ons. What part of Jersey are you from? If you are willing to make a drive to State College, PA you could get in contact with them and see what they can do for you. If that is something you are interested in doing, post it here and I'll email you the contact info at the dealership.

Yep, mine was trailered in from Aurora, Il and no extra fees for that. It only had about 50 miles on it when I took delivery so it must have seen a test ride or two, but it is an awesome car. I'll send you info shortly.
#2921 of 3003 Oct Prices Paid

We just put a deposit for a White/beige SF FWD 2.0T with premium and technology package wich will come in first week of Nov. It also comes with mats, cargo cover, and mud guards as PIO options. Let me know if these are good prices:
Rebate: $500 for leasing
Net Price: $31800
Lease term: 36m 12K miles/year
Monthly Payment: $360.51
Lease term: 48m 12k m/yr
Monthly Payment: $377.62
3 years lease seems to be optimal, even though the warranty is for 5 yrs. Hyundai is offering 3.9% financing up to 60 months, but no incentive for using their bank. One can easily get 2.9% with most banks, and possibly lower for shorter terms. Sales indicated Hyundai does their lease rates on a quarterly basis, so should be not change for Nov.
Please give me some feedback on these prices. Thanks.
#2922 of 3003 Buy at the end of the month
Nov 09, 2012 (7:59 pm)
Santa Fe Sport Turbo, fully loaded with mud guards, cargo cover, floor mats, Tech package, leather, sunroof, etc... and the dealer agreed to tint the front windows.
Price: $30700 less $500 rebate for military. Final price: $30200.
Buy at the end of the month and shop the dealers against each other. This was a loss for them. They basically were moving inventory. Antoher dealer would have beat there price as well, but we felt loyalty to a salesman that had spent quite a bit of time with us.
#2923 of 3003 2013 Santa Fe Sport - $1710 off MSRP- good deal?
Nov 10, 2012 (11:00 pm)
I'm helping my Mom purchase a new 2013 Santa Fe Sport (Base), which basically means I'm doing all the legwork and negotiating and she'll sign on the dotted line when the time comes.
We've decided on Moonstone Silver (with mandatory Gray interior, which is fine) with the Popular Equipment Package and Premium & Leather Package. The MSRP so equipped is $29,175. I have requested quotes from several area dealers and they ranged from $26,899 to $28,175. The dealership that I prefer to do business with quoted $27,465 including $500 Military Bonus for my step-dad's prior service. Their price is $1710 off MSRP, which seems like a fair price on this vehicle at this time.
The dealership hasn't had a chance to appraise her trade-in yet and the quote was given assuming no trade-in. If their trade-in offer is unacceptable and they won't increase it, we are prepared to purchase the new one and keep the old car and sell it privately. Hopefully, that won't be the case...
This will also be a CASH deal, no financing. We're not exactly the kind of customer that dealers love to see coming- no trade-in or financing to increase their profit. The quote of $27,465 is barely $100 over invoice, so it seems pretty fair to me.
