  • sorry for the late reply. been out enjoying my new SF 2.0T. Go to hardin hyundai in Anahiem. Several of the dealerships around here were willing to match the deal ... only hardin was willing to add the tow hitch. good luck.
  • Hi 1stbeemer1. The numbers for the FWD are different than the numbers for the AWD model. I believe that the residual values are the same for both but the money factors are .00148 for the FWD and .00157 for the AWD.

  • Thanks sunshine1949. Two Santa Fes huh? You must really like them :).

    Hyundai Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Santa Fe 2.0T FWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00148 and 64% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    There's a $500 cash incentive on leases of this vehicle right now.

  • Hopefully someone can get back to me within 24 hours on this as I am planning on getting this Wednesday or Thursday. I think I got a fantastic deal but worth checking with you guys to see your input.

    It's a 36 month lease/12,000 annual miles.

    2013 Santa Fe 2.4L FWD, Black w/ Dark Gray Leather interior.
    Popular Equipment Package and Premium & Leather Package.($3,000 value)
    Free Oil Changes for life of Lease(and an additional 2 years after lease if I decide to buy)

    The lease on Hyundai's website is for $269/mo and its just the base model and that's with $3,000 down and doesn't include taxes, fees, etc.

    Here is the price I got per month and this INCLUDES all fees, taxes, etc.

    $308/mo. This includes $3,000 down($2,600 trade in + $400 cash)

    So what do you guys think?
  • Hi gators4. It's difficult for me to comment on this deal without knowing what this vehicle's MSRP and selling price because I don't know what the payment should be like off of the top of my head. If you tell me what these numbers are I'd be happy to tell you what I think.

    One thing I can tell you is that you would be better off having the dealer cut you a check for any equity that you have in your trade rather than using the proceeds from it as a down payment for your lease. I always advice consumers to put as little money down as possible when leasing because if your vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered then your down payment might just disappear.

  • MSRP with all that on it is $29,500
    Purchase price would be $27,700

    I will have to look into the no down payment thing. I actually think I would get about $1,000 more out of the car that I'm trading it in if I sold it myself.

    After seeing the Purchase price what do you think about the $308/mo?

    Also, they told me now that I could jst put $2,600 down and then make my first monthly payment of $308. Before it was $3,000 down plus initial monthly payment.
  • Thanks for the additional information gators4. Let's take a look at the selling price that you were quoted. This vehicle has a spread of around $1,300 or so between its MSRP and dealer invoice price. Add to that the $500 cash incentive that is available on leases of it right now and you have around $1,800 or so to play with in your negotiations. Interestingly, that's the exact discount that you are being given, so I'd say that this is a very good selling price.

    Just make sure that the dealer is using Hyundai Finance's buy rate lease money factor of .00148 9top credit tier) to calculate your lease payment and you're in business.

    Ok yeah, and pay as little money at lease signing as possible.

  • Car_man, do you have any updated info on the residual and MF for a 2013 Santa Fe Sport AWD with 12k miles?

    Any ideas if the $500 cash incentive still applies for leases?
  • Hi psu1226. Hyundai Finance's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Santa Fe Sport AWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00119 and 60% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Yes there is still a $500 cash incentive on leases of this vehicle.

  • Thanks Car_man. I forgot to ask, what is the residual value for 15000 miles and whether there's a difference in the residual if you go for FWD.
  • You're welcome psu1226. Hyundai Finance's January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Santa Fe Sport AWD with 15,000 miles per year are .00095 and 56% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

  • Mr. Car Man,

    I am trying to determine the right lease payment for a 2013 Hyundai Sante Fe 2.0T with AWD (MSRP 32745, negotiated price 31745).

    I would like to lease with minimum miles (12k) over 36 month term.

    How do I make sure that the dealer calculates any down payment and lease appropriately? I understand what capitalized cost, money factor, and residual value are, but I'm not sure how to put everything together, especially in light of acquisition fees, taxes, and so on.

    Any guidance would be appreciated.
  • Hi agrewal. I can work up a sample lease payment on this truck for you to give you an idea of what to expect. Hyundai Finance's current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 Santa Fe 2.0T AWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00114 and 59% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    Using these numbers, an MSRP of $32,745 and a selling price of $31,745 (though given the $500 lease cash that's available on this model, this isn't enough of a discount for my taste), I estimate that this truck's zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $404.

    If I was in the market for this model, I personally would shoot for at least another $500 off. That would lower the pre-tax payment to around $389.

  • Hello Car_Man,

    Can you provide some data on the (new) Santa Fe, non-sport: GLS and Limited AWD. Looking for the basics: MF, residual for 36 months and 12K miles. Also curious what, if any, incentives are out there for this truck (I can't seem to find any information).

    Thanks!
  • Hi drdrakeramore. I haven't seen a lease program for the non-Sport Santa Fe. Is it even out? I don't think that it's available yet.

  • Thanks, I found that out after I posted...my wife was taken with the ads during Super Bowl and I thought I'd get a jump on things. A bit of recognizance (with area dealers) told me that they don't even know when they'll be taking delivery...some delays in the pipeline, apparently. Unfortunate, as there seems to be a lot of interest right now. Thanks again!
  • You're very welcome drdrakeramore.

  • Hi Car_man

    Thanks for you earlier replies. I have a couple of follow-up questions that I hope you can help me out with:

    1. As the year goes by, I assume that residual of the cars will be lower as we get close to the model year end. Do manufacturers counter the residual drop with lower MF to keep the payments on leases similar, or are you better of leasing early on? I'm hoping to lease by the end of the month, but I wanted to know what to expect if I decided to wait out to check the LWB version of the Santa Fe.

    2. Earlier this month you posted the following info on residual and MF: "2013 Santa Fe 2.0T AWD with 12,000 miles per year are .00114 and 59% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier". I originally was going to go with AWD, but realized that I probably don't REALLY need it for my area. Can you let me know what the residual and MF is for for the 2.0T FWD with 12k and 15k miles.

    3. Do you know what are HMF current acquisition and disposition fees? Want to make sure I've got all of the fees covered :)

    4. I don't see a $500 lease cash bonus on hyundaiusa site. Is this promotion still on?

    Thanks again for all your help.
  • Thank you for all of the helpful information. Can you please give me your thoughts on the following offer?

    2013 SF 2.0T Sport, Tech Pack/Premium Pack
    MSRP $34,310 (do not know the selling price yet)
    $1500 due at signing (includes first month)
    $379/mo (tax-in).

    I can probably get the dealer down to $369/mo., but want to use a slow February/end of month leverage to see if I can get away with $1000 down, $369.00 month.

    Thanks,
  • Update:

    I was interested in leasing the 2013 Sante Fe 2.0T FWD w/ Tech package, but I couldn't find a color combination that I liked in my area. My dealer pointed me to a AWD model which had my top color choice combination (Mineral Gray / Black interior), so I decided to take that and pay up for the AWD. Here are the details of the lease:

    Vehicle: 2013 Sante Fe Sport 2.0T AWD with Tech Package
    Miles: 12k/year
    MSRP: $35,900
    Invoice: $34,067
    Purchase Price: $32,765.35 (Hyundai Circle Plan A through Hyundai Think Tank)
    Discounts:$750 Loyalty, $500 Lease Cash, $500 Motozuma matching
    Down payment:$500 (Needed it to get the Motozuma deal)
    Residual: 59% or $21,181 (Couldn't confirm with car_man)
    Money Factor: .00114 (Couldn't confirm with car_man)
    Dealer Fee: $200 (Maryland)
    Acquisition Fee: $595
    Taxes in VA = 3% (They tax leases on full price :( )
    Monthly $370.16 includes tax

    At signing: $370.16 + $500 Down + $118.5 Title and Tags (VA) = $988.66

    Car_man had posted that residual and money factor early Feb, so assuming they were correct, the numbers checked out. First time leasing, so I hope I didn't make a mistake somewhere.
