Hyundai Santa Fe, SUV
#597 of 2973 Just bought my 07 SE
Feb 15, 2007 (9:05 am)
I've following the board for quite a while and it has proved inavaluable. Ok, here is the deal I got:
07 Santa Fe SE / no options w/ XM / Natural Khaki
This includes the 1K rebate and the $500 loyalty rebate
I used Apple Valley Hyundai in Winchester, VA and they were terific. They beat the best advertised price (Fitzmall) in my are by $200 and searched around for the color and car I wanted. I worked the numbers over the phone, the financing as well. I told them that I needed to make a minimum on my trade (2003 Sonata GLS w/sunroof and 77K). He gave me a price for the trade on the phone and said that if my car was in the condition I said it was we'd have a deal.
I expected to get lowballed on the trade because the price of the new vehicle was so competitive. MY salesman and the GM looked at my car for 5 minutes and siad, fine, we'll give you what you need for it.
I was in and out of the dealer in under 2 hours.
I love the car, and I would tell anyone out htere in the market to hold out for an XM equipped version if you can, it's worth it.
As far as acceleration lag, I have not felt it even with the ESC on.

I'm back, again...
You probably think I'm beating a dead horse, but I had to let you know I discovered a $159 dealer add-on that I forgot to mention from the other dealer... vin etching on all the glass.
Also, I made a mistake when I told you my final price:
$25,431(rebate included) + DCF + TAX + REG = $27,429 OTD!!!
This probably doesn't look like a good deal, but up here in Connecticut it's a good price considering the cost of living in this state, the location, and the economy, especially when I see what others are paying and the "BS" other dealers are telling them!!!

Just bought a 2007 SF LTD AWD for 25,800 plus tax. This probably not the best deal but not bad either. I talked to a couple of dealers in order to get the best deal. I traded in my 2006 Sonata.
One of the main reason I didn't sell the Sonata on my own is that, in Colorado, you pay taxes on the difference between your new car purchase and trade in value. This saved me a $1000 in tax money.
Love the vehicle!

That's very close to what I paid for my 2007 LTD AWD. I ended up paying a touch more because the dealer had to search the entire Western region to find the exact Santa Fe I wanted and had it shipped from Oregon to Colorado.

These SFs are amazing! I know what a good suv is like. I used to own a 4Runner (another great vehicle but very expensive!!) The only thing that came with my new LTD is floormats and a cargo tray.
You live in Co? I haven't seen another one on the road as of yet. My color is Deepwater blue. The interior is gray and the trim is sort of black marble rather than the fake wood (unusual). Another odd the thing about my SF is that my reading lamps come on when the doors open.
I want to protect this car and want it to last. Unless they start making an suv that gets 100 miles to the gallon, I don't see myself getting rid of the vehicle for the next 7 years. So, I already purchased online some mud guards and now looking into clear mask for the front hood and bumper. I found a place that will put the 3M mask on for $240.
#603 of 2973 I finally found my Santa Fe!!!
Feb 20, 2007 (8:20 am)
After trying to locate the exact Santa Fe since July 2006, I finally found and purchased it president's day weekend. I got the 2007 Santa Fe Limited AWD in steel gray (the color is amazing!) with just the ultimate package!!! I paid $26000 plus TTL. I thought I got a great deal and the SUV is amazing! The dealership was by the far the best I have ever used when buying new cars. Where to begin with the new Santa Fe??? The ride is amazing, the infinity surround sound system is amazing, the storage in the back is amazing. If you do not need the thrid row seats, don't get them! The storage you get in place of it is GREAT! The interior "blue" lights give the car an incredible look. The faux wood tone in black/grey combo is amazing. The auto climate control is amazing. This SUV looks and performs like a luxury SUV that costs thousands of dollars more! And the looks I am getting from other people are priceless. If you are thinking about getting this SUV...just test drive it...you will be convinced!

I am really happy with the purchase.
#605 of 2973 2007 SANTA FE LTD FWD
Feb 21, 2007 (1:00 am)
SANTA FE LTD FWD WITH SUNROOF (PREMIUM PKG) AND MATS -SAGE.
$23,800 + $135 tags/doc fee + PA state tax
In Bucks County, PA, shopped my local dealer, McCafferty's. Had a terrific salesman(D)who gave me a test drive on one occasion, and a test-fit in my tight garage on another. They were offering excellent prices well below invoice, helped by the $1000 rebate and a $750 dealer kickback of some sort. Unfortunately their selection was mostly GLS's or LTD's with the 3rd row. The sales manager (also D)made me some terrific offers on some other cars that didn't fit the bill (wife was fussy about color), and offered to put a sunroof in another car for factory cost (wasn't comfortable with that). She did some locates, but couldn't find the right car that day. Went lot-hopping at Northeast (Philly) Hyundai. Was met in the lot by a salesman (J) who gave me a quick walk through the large selection on the lot. The very last one had my color and options, and was still wrapped from delivery - no ugly pinstripes or edge guards installed yet. Told him I'd go home to crunch my numbers. He read me right and didn't force me inside. Called the sales manager back and we worked off my McCafferty's numbers. He said he couldn't match the deal, but the salesman called back a little later with another number that was close enough. Also the fee for new tags and doc was a reasonable $135. They included a full tank of gas, no pressure for extended warranties, promised a free oil change or fill-up with a completed dealer survey, and the salesman drove me about 10 miles to get my other car home.

Congrats! I just bought an SE w/XM without options last week for 22,285 OTD. Sounds like we got similar deals based on trim. Enjoy!
