  • We purchased a 2014 Santa Fe Sport 2.0T FWD with Tech Package at Jim Ellis in Atlanta. MSRP with accessories was $36,170. We used the Hyundai Circle program to purchase and the certificate pricing was $33,091 + TTL.

    They gave me 1.94% financing for 60 months and threw in free lifetime oil changes.

    I know we could have gotten cheaper by pitting dealerships vs each other, but we are happy since I dislike haggling. We also wanted to buy from that specific dealership as they are only a couple of miles from our house, and they don't stick an ugly dealer logo on the back of the car.
  • Trying to get any idea on prices paid vs MSRP for 2014 Santa Fe Limiteds. Supply seems limited (pardon the pun) so wondering if that is affecting deals. Any info you can share gratefully received. Also want to get the December residual and money factor for a Santa Fe Limited with AWD on 10k and 12k miles? Asked in another forum, but this one seems to get a lot more activity, so apologies for the double post. Thanks in advance.

    Has anyone purchased a 2014 Santa Fe Sport 2.4L FWD? I received a quote for an out the door price of $26000 that included the popular package, has anyone received a better deal? Thanks.

    Can anyone tell me what they have paid out of pocket fees and monthly payment for a 2014 Sport FWD base with the popular package 36mo 12K a year lease?
  • So this is the deal I've been offered, I haven't been to the dealership. I insisted on doing it all via email until I have a firm offer before I drive to check it out. 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport FWD 2.4 with Popular Package only. 3 year lease with 36K miles, ZERO down, ZERO out of pocket Sign and Drive. $332.94 a month. Considering Hyundai's national offer is the same vehicle and options at $269 a month with $3100 down I think this is a pretty good offer. If anyone has any input I would appreciate it, I am probably going to go to the dealership tomorrow or Wednesday.

    I would agree ... the $3100 down works out to about $86/mo, or $355/mo when added to the $269/mo in the offer. If you have a quote of $333/mo then they have either shaved off some money from the sales price or lowered the money factor. Either way, seems like a pretty good deal for a lot of SUV.

    We purchased a new 2014 Santa Fe Limited with Tech Package...pretty much loaded up...also, had 4WD. The car had the minor options like floor mats, rear cargo cover net and mud flaps. The sticker price on the vehicle from Hyundai (no dealer addendum's with paint sealant and crap here) was about $41,400. We paid $36,000 for the car. We purchased from a dealer in Miami named Doral Hyundai. We live 2 miles from Rick Case Hyundai and they couldn't touch the deal...they were telling me their best deal on a 2WD Limited with Tech Package was about $37K. So, although we don't really need the AWD vehicle, for the price we paid I think we got a very good deal. Also, our salesman was amazing too. Very helpful and one of the few who knew his product he was selling. I also got 4 year financing at 1.90 percent which isn't too bad either. Salesman's name was Frank Fernandez. The only thing we would have liked to have was the Daytime Running Lights...though a vehicle so well equipped would come standard with those...especially with the funky eyebrow lights over the HID headlamps. But, apparently, it's optional on the vehicles.

    This Suv gets a very good write up from Edmunds and Cr reports .. Whats nice about this vehicle is your warranty.. I would check and see your resale value on this model after 4 and 5 years.. It may not be as good compared to the other brands? If you plan on keeping this car for 8 years or more then it wont matter............. just run it in the ground.

    You guys will see as the months go buy and we get closer to the summer months hyundai will discount this vehicle further. If you buy closer to Oct/ Nov there will be more incentives / rebates/ discounts closer to 3k on this model..This will all depend on sales thru this year and this models competition with other brands

    I had entered this reply in the Reliability and Depreciation Thread for another poster but it answers your question concerning Resale Value of the 2014.

    I believe my Consumer Report stated that the Santa Fe is pretty much average for reliability. In my Columbus Dispatch today the experts at Automotive Lease Guide in Santa Barbara, California listed the top vehicles in each Class for Best Resale Values. The top vehicles in the Midsize Utility Vehicle was the 3 Row Toyota Highlander and the 2 Row Santa Fe Sport which can be had in AWD and the limited trim. These were for the 2014 model year. I own a 2012 Toyota Highlander Limited AWD V6 and I really like it. If I were in the market I would not hesitate to take a serious look at the Santa Fe. It is very sharp looking and has a ton of content for the price. Pricing out a new Highlander Limited AWD V6 and a Santa Fe 3 row Limited AWD the Santa Fe would save you about 4 to 5 K in my area according to TrueCar. Where the Toyota has won hands down is reliability which is why we bought it. 2014 Highlander was a total redesign so the jury is out on it but CR said it expects it to be the same. I also have personal experience with Hyundai ownership. I bought a loaded 2003 Sonata V6 new. I gave it to my daughter in October 2008. It now has about 106,000 miles on it and it is still going strong, knock on wood. I did have something break inside the engine at about 6000 miles. Started hearing a faint clicking that was very difficult to hear. A Service Manager got inside the car and listened, but thankfully heard it. 10 minutes later he came to me and told me they are ordering a brand new engine and gave me a Santa Fe to use for two weeks. Has run beautifully since. I feel very confident that Hyundai has become a 1st class auto maker in the last 11 years since I bought mine.>

    I too would consider buying the Santa fe sport turbo in a couple of years. . Its smaller and offers alot for the money. With grown kids this suv is the perfect vehicle. I'm thinking when i get rid of my X-5 in 2016 that for under 30k its the perfect SUV size wise to throw my golf clubs in the back.. lets see if this model's reliability and ratings holds up..

    Brian,

    I am in Orlando, FL. I ran the numbers through Truecar (Santa Fe Sport, FWD, no Turbo with Popular Equipment Package). I actually used the zipcode for Clearwater, FL, as there is a Fitzmall dealership there than tends to really undercut other dealerships.

    Truecar gave me $24,244, which is less than the Orlando Truecar estimate of $25,244

    I made sure to NOT choose any incentives, in order to get the actual vehicle pricing.

    Then, I went back and added the incentives for USAA ($100), Loyalty ($750) and Bonus Cash ($750).

    That took my Truecar certificate to $22,644 + Docs Fee of $597 = TOTAL $23,241, which is almost $3000 under invoice, if my math is right.

    Thoughts?


    You mentioned that a drawback of this vehicle is lower resale value, as compared to a CRV, but that is a non-issue, as my wife and I are budget-conscious and buy cars once in a blue moon (I am still rocking my 2001 Honda Civic with 186000+ miles - plan to get 300000). I felt like the Santa Fe was roomier and nicer on the inside.

    I've used Fitzmall for a "baseline" when shopping before too. My sister lives relatively close to a couple of their NE locations so it wasn't entirely just a pricing exercise for me. Last month I got a little nagging suspicion that they have bumped their prices up a little, but I didn't get far enough in the exercise to really compare brass tack numbers.

    Mikc34,

    By keeping the hyundai for many years makes the comparison a non issue for you. I buy the Santa fa over the CRv also . Its a better buy/ great warranty, with more room. Take that price of 24k and build on that price. I would search for as many dealerships closest to you and try to get that price / lower. When you email or call the Internet mgrs have your price to buy ready and tell each dealership..... I will buy today for XXX price and hold with a credit card to show i'm serious. Make each dealer comitt before you hang up .. Yes or NO.. If its no make that dealership give you a price that they will do..... Then tell that dealer if I decide not to go to FRITZ i will consider your dealership..Let every other dealer know you are prepared to buy at Fritz on that day if they cant meet or beat your price. Your buying leverage is pitting Fritz Hyundai against all the other dealers. Buying closer to months end, last days of June will help you get that knock out price. find dealerships closer to your home with several of your model on there lot and you may get your price or lower at months end. I find buying a Hyundai so much easier than a honda.

    Good choice in vehicle and post if you need me.

    Brian, I contacted the dealership regarding the Truecar price, and they have a vehicle, but they also want $1495 for the Dealer Protection Package, that includes paint protection, wheel locks, door guard strips, and pinstriping, none of which I want. Suggestions for dealing with this?
  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 40,560
    edited June 7

    I'd tell them no thanks and walk. Make sure they have your phone number first though; maybe they'll get hungrier as the month goes by. That package is a load of expensive junk. Not sure how they can get away with that if you line up the "haggle free" price ahead of time - you may want to investigate our Price Promise certificate instead.

    Car sales are booming right now so there may be a bit less incentive for wheeling and dealing.

  • mikec34mikec34 Posts: 11

    Thanks guys. I wrote back to the dealership, but they are saying that those things are already on the vehicle and cannot be removed. He did ask what I considered to be a fair price for that package, which includes:

    Paint Protection Wheel Locks Nitrogen tires Pinstriping Door edge guards

    My thoughts are that the above equals no more than $300. Thoughts?

  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 40,560

    Paint protection What's a can of Mother's going for at Walmart these days? $10?

    Nitrogen in the tires. LOL, air is already 79% nitrogen. That's worthless.

    Pinstriping tape is $6 on eBay. The good 3M stuff runs $20.

    Door edge guards run $20 to $35 bucks online.

    Wheel locks are around $30 a set.

    So, you're up to about $80, plus another $20 for the wax application.

    I'd say you're $200 high on your estimate. :)

    OK, another dealership contacted me back and will match the $24,841 + tax and title, do this price includes dealer fee. This one is local. I Made sure they knew I was not interested in and add-ons.

    The incentives should knock another $1600 off. I think this is probably the best I'll get, no? Dealer wants me to come in to put a deposit down.

    I will probably purchase the carpeted mats, but not sure about anything else.

    The dealer wants you to put a deposit down so you'll quit shopping. That's called "taking you out of the market".

    A deposit is okay so long as it's refundable. Who knows, the other dealer may sweeten their deal too, in which case you get your deposit back on get the other Santa Fe..

    Sounds like you are doing good with the local dealer though.

    Steve, that $24,841 is $1,034 below invoice price of $25875. That's pretty good, right?

    Well, there's always "that" guy who gets a better deal than everyone else but I think you're doing great. You're way under TMV.

    There may be a bit more wiggle room in your price and Brian may advise you to grind more. But you've done your due diligence and gotten some quotes so I guess the question is whether you care about leaving a few hundred bucks (maybe) on the hood or are you ready to start enjoy driving a new car? As long as you keep cars, a few hundred bucks is not going to matter much over ten years.

    You can't get too hung up over invoice price though. (USA Today). The dealer is still doing just fine, what with all the "kickbacks" and holdback and stuff..

    I agree with Stever. Here is the easiest way to get a better deal without stressing out.. To avoid dealers pushing you etc.

    Tell all dealerships involved that you will be buying this vehicle at the end of the month. Tell every dealer you are looking for another 600 dollars off your model than quoted. . If any one dealer will match that price before the end of June you will buy on that day otherwise I will consider my offers at months end.

    Leave your number/ email then let this month play out.. You will hit your mark>>

    Good luck

    Hello all, I have been actively reading for some time now (both here and on the Honda forum), read all through the carbuyingtips.com tutorial and Brian's advice (similar to tutorial). My wife needs a new car. We have narrowed our search to 3 (in order of preference):

    Hyundai Santa Fe Sport (with popular/premium pkg) Hyundai Tuscon (SE) Honda CR-V (EX-L)

    Ideally, we would like to be max 23K OTD after trade and/or private sale ('03 Toyota Corolla 170K miles with some work needed but good engine (AC/Brakes work required))

    I feel we will get the most bang for our buck with the Hyundai cars, especially the Tuscon, however we will be starting a family in the next couple of years and I get the feeling that in 5-6 years we would regret not getting the extra space with the Santa Fe.

    I have quoted out many dealers online and have been working on getting OTD prices. I have been/Will be using Fitz as a starting point to go down from. Have also found a New Santa Fe sport with above pkgs at 25,714 (Capitol Hyundai in Columbia, SC). However, this internet quote includes 'all rebates' which I'm assuming is the $750 rebate. We do qualify for the college grad rebate and general 750 rebate so 1150 in rebates available.

    With the end of the month coming up and 2015s coming out anytime (Edmunds states mid summer... all salesmen saying Fall?) as well as with the starting points of these internet quotes I don't think it would be impossible.

    Any thoughts? Sorry this was long. Trying to get the most for our money and I THINK it woudl be in the Santa Fe in the long run. No plans to trade in as we drive our cars until it does not make financial sense to do so anymore (thus the re-sale argument with Honda is moot).

    Thanks and appreciate all of your time/help. Hoping to get a great deal!.
