    Have been looking at the SF Limited FWD with tech package for $33,800 plus tax and fees, $38,025.95 OTD price, in California Not sure if this is decent or not as we just started to shop. Problem is not a lot in stock in the SF Bay Area. Are dealers carrying limited supply because the 2014 is coming or just low on inventory?

    Just started doing research for this vehicle. Used Truecar and got a dealer who wants me to come in on a price at $23,139. I don't need any of the extra stuff (is any of it really worth it?).

    How would this price be (obviously does not include dealer fees, title, taxes, etc.). I have never used Truecar before. Thanks.

    I'm about to sign this deal on Monday, I just want to make sure it's a good deal. Any input would be appreciated:

    2013 Santa Fe Sport 2.0T FWD Fully Loaded w/ Premium and Tech Packages.

    MSRP: $34,300
    Cap Cost: $30,098 (includes loyalty and lease cash)
    12k Miles/36 Months
    Residual: 60%
    Money Factor: .00195
    Payment: $385/month (includes FL sales tax)
    Down: $0

    Total Out of Pocket at Signing: $1250 ($865 in fees + $385 first payment)

    I didn't sign anything yet since I didn't want to cut a check without first making sure the deal was right so the payment might go up to $399 (tax inclusive) since we "were close" and that was their counter offer before I told them I wanted to think on it until Monday. I realize they may not honor the deal come Monday but at least this gives me an idea of what I should be paying.
  • I am in NC and actively looking, and driving to CLT tomorrow. Can you tell me what dealer in CLT you purchased from?

    Just bought a The Santa Fe Limited with FWD and Tech package with the extra little add ons for $33,847 which included the $750 loyalty Rebate. An additional $500 rebate is available if you open up a free Motozuma account.

    This came out to about $3500 under MSRP.

    Made a nice deal for a 2013 Santa Fe LWB Limited Iron Frost/w black leather interior. The first trade-in offer for my 2012 Tundra was $29,000 and they finally agreed upon $33,000.

    The Santa Fe had an MSRP of $36,045 and the deal was done when the dealer offered to sell it to me for $33,400. Nice vehicle.
  • Hi, I am looking to purchase a Sport 2.0 with leather package -- Randall Noe has them advertised at $26,499 (MSRP is about $31,650 - depending on the accessories), and they are tacking on about $300 in documentation and other dealer fees.

    OTD is $26,499 + $1670 (tax @6.25%) + 300 = $28,469 (includes carpets, cargo cover, wheel locks).

    Sound good? Anyone have a dealer in town (Dallas) they recommend with a good price?

    Last question - I have had no luck finding a Sport 2.0 with BOTH packages (leather and tech) - no one seems to have the tech package -- any one else with the same problem?
  • I just purchased a 2013 Santa Fe AWD with every option available (leather, tech, panoramic roof, blue link..ect) and while the price we started at was $36K I worked them down to $29K sales price and got the bumper to bumper warranty extended 10yrs and powertrain warranty for LIFE and got 2yrs of regular maintanence free. Based on what i have read in these forums, that deal was smokin. The negotiation was tough but there are tricks and tactics i have picked up over the years that really helped. I would be happy to share my experience.
  • That does sound like a "smokin" deal. Was that from a dealer in the DFW area? If so, which dealer?

    Hyundai of Dallas advertises a 2.0T Sport with Leather (no tech) for $26,100 BUT to get than price you must be a recent college grad in the military using Hyundai finacing. The cheapest price I have found for a straight cash purchase is $27,150 + 125 for docs / licensing + sales tax = $28,972 (same as you paid - but that does not include the Tech Package).
  • mfurlsmfurls Posts: 1
    Please do share your experience! That sounds amazing. I didn't even know it was possible to get powertrain warranty for life...that's crazy.
  • He did not get powertrain warranty for life. No dealer can make that commitment on behalf of Hyundai. He is pulling your chain. Do not fall for it.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 66,862
    Who said that they committed Hyundai to the warranty? The dealer can certainly make that commitment on their own. We have plenty of local dealers that do that.

    It's of dubious value, given the qualifying parameters, but not that uncommon. Another sales tactic is "Tires for life".. Another add-on that isn't worth much (unless you normally replace your tires one at a time).

    These are all add-ons that rarely cost the dealer much at all, but seem like they might be of great value. Anything that complicates the deal or obfuscates the value received for price paid is an advantage to the dealer in negotiations.

    All if it's harmless, if you just disregard it as having any real present-day value.

  • Just purchased 31AUG:
    2013 Santa Fe Limited - Black with Saddle Interior - Technology Package
    MSRP: 38,980 (included dealer protection package of 1,580).
    Paid: 34,100 with free car washes for life.

    Fairly painless process though I usually prefer to deal with the internet sales department. This was a family owned dealership with moderate volume. Felt like I got a good deal and with comparative brands did better with the Hyundai than I could have done with the others. I traded in a vehicle but now feel like I could have done better on the trade-in value than I actually did. I went back and forth with the salesman / manager six times before getting the final deal. Of course the first number they presented me with was the MSRP and we went from there.

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 66,862
    I'm sorry... we don't have the Hyundai lease numbers for October.

    But, the dealer can't alter the residual value, and that money factor is very similar to what they were offering last month, so I'd say your salesperson is being upfront...

  • @Kyfdx do you have November rates for the 2013 2.4 FWD Santa Fe, 3 year/15k/yr lease?

    MSRP: $34,640
    Paid: $29,990

    Includes $750 competitor and $500 retail cash. Did not finance through HMF so no finance cash incentive. Also the exterior/interior color combination I wanted had to be driven in from out of state, but this was free.

    If you are a parent of young children (at least one under 12 years old) who owns a 2013-14 Hyundai Santa Fe, a reporter would like for you to fill out a survey, due by December 13, 2013, for use in a print publication. Please email no later than Wednesday, December 11, for a copy of the survey.
  • Just 2 months ago I wrote a glowing review of the dealership and sales rep - Plaza Hyundai (Brooklyn NY) / Ronald Brookes - on this forum. Since then I have had the worst customer experience of my life. I'm at my wit's end. I am not sure who to speak to because NO ONE will get back to me - not even Hyundai USA. It's unreal.

    I leased a Hyundai Elantra from Plaza Hyundai in Brooklyn NY in 2010. When my lease was up at the end of last year, I returned to Plaza Hyundai to lease a new car. Prior to that time my Elantra was inspected and I was told I would owe Hyundai Motor Financing $423 in excess wear and tear charges - include over $375 for a scratch "larger than 6 inches" on the bumper. I also was told the engine was dirty. When I went to Plaza Hyundai, I had my sales rep Ronald Brookes look at the scratch - he agreed with me that it wasn't even 2 inches in length. I told him that I would not lease from him unless they took the car back and dealt with this charge. I was 100% clear about this from the very beginning. After 7 hours spent at the dealership I agreed on a lease for a Santa Fe Sport - and I was told they would cover the cost of the Elantra "excess wear & tear". I messed up. I didn't get it in writing. I just assumed since I hadn't yet received a bill it would just be covered when I returned my car to them. I know - naïve. When I received a bill three weeks later from Hyundai Motor Financing for the Excess wear & tear, I called Ronald and told him about it. He denied making the deal with me but said he agreed that the scratch was not 6 inches or more in length and if I sent him the bill he'd see what he could do about it. Over the next week I heard nothing back. I emailed twice and left two voicemails. Finally I wrote an email saying "are you receiving my emails?" Ronald wrote back "Susan I have gotten the messages." Nothing more. I wrote - "are you looking into this?" He said, "call my manager Benny. [and provided a number]" I called. There was no Benny on the voicemail but I left a message anyway. Twice. Never heard back. Then I called the main #. I spoke with Besik Davarashvili. He said he'd look into it. Two weeks passed. Never heard back from him. I left messages for the General Manager. Twice. No call back. I left a message for the customer service department. Never heard back. It's been a month since I first reached out to Ronald. I went to the Hyundai USA website yesterday and wrote an email to them. NOTHING BACK. I can't believe how I'm begin treated! I'm on my SECOND lease with Hyundai - both from this dealership. But apparently my value as a customer is zero. The other day I was having issues with my Bluetooth. I realized that I don't even have someone there I could call for help - because it's clear no one will call me back. The reason I went back to Plaza Hyundai and to a Hyundai in general was so that I could get good customer service and a car that was reliable. I even thought I had great rapport with Ronald and all the folks at Hyundai Plaza and was going to recommend them to everyone I know. I feel like a chump. I truly don't know who else to contact. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

  • The Circle of Service

    My dealer could not fix a broken seat so I called the Hyundai customer service line. They referred me back to the dealer. The dealer referred me to the customer line.

    you should see if you can get them on the line at the same time - that would be interesting
