#527 of 3002 Is this a good deal?
Dec 24, 2006 (4:45 pm)
Hre's what my dealer had to say -
The pricing on the Santa Fe Limited with a sunroof will be $25560. To that you must ad tax, lic, doc, tire fees that bring the total to $27823. Currently( until 1/2/07) the is a $500 rebate for being a current owner of a Hyundai which would bring your total out the door price to $27323.
I also want to get an estimate on the value of my 2004 Santa Fe, any thoughts on that?

FWD or AWD? Also what is the sales tax rate in your state? Here it's 5 percent, meaning on $25,500 you'd pay around $1300. So they're adding another $1000 for licensing, document and tire fees? That sounds high, and could probably be negotiated down. (Plus I have never seen a tire fee on any car I've bought, but that could just be me)
I'd ask for a breakdown on the fees and then call your department of motor vehicles to see which ones are mandatory.
For an estimate on your Santa Fee use Edmunds or Kelly Blue Book's websites.

I did it. I negotiated $27531 for my 2007 Santa Fe Limited AWD including distination, T & P packages and floor mats (before $500 rebate). I paid extra for taxes, registration and window etch. The total came to about $29710. However, I found multiple defects on the car within a week. I will post another message about these defects in a different forum.

Pricing for a FWD Limited with sunroof (i.e premium package) at $25,560 incl. destination, but before any rebates is a decent price (a little under dealer invoice if you include the advertising fee Hyundai charges them per vehicle).
Now, as a current Hyundai owner, you should get $1000 off the final total after adding TTL ($500 for all buyers + $500 as current owner). Tire fee is legitimate in some states like CA.
#532 of 3002 Just got back from the Dealer
Dec 27, 2006 (3:37 pm)
Just arrived home from the dealer and here's what I came out with:
2007 Santa Fe GLS AWD Auto with:
Carpeted Floor Mats
Platinum Exterior/Gray interior
Cash Price: $24,219.00
Dealer Tax: +$48.44
Sales Tax: +734.04
Total Price Paid: $24,800.00
I didn't get to see many GLS with premium package transactions in this thread, so I hope I can be of some reference for those of us interested in the base model.
Got the color I wanted in stock and the experience was better than I thought. I had to get some things corrected, but nothing major. It was funny to see them trying their game exactly as carbuyingtips.com said they would, but nothing of concern, just the regular upsell.
I'm pleased with the deal and the car. That's what matters. Let's see now what the future holds.
Are the Mud flaps standard equipment?

Champion on the Gulf Freeway gives a great price -- I worked with several dealers and they gave me the best price with the least hassle.
