2005 Hyundai Santa Fe LX Fwd 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I've wanted a Santa Fe since they debuted. I'm a previous Hyundai owner & adore the warrenty. I never had a problem that wasn't covered by the bumper-to-bumper warranty & when it expired, the cost was pretty minimal for the add. 15k miles that I drove it. I did my research & waited until my finances allowed for a new car payment. I did all of my price negotiating via email with three different dealers. This is difficult, but I'm email savvy & was persistent/firm (but courteous) with the sales people. Using the quotes (everything in writing), I was able to negotiate $3000 below invoice. Do your research, get everything in writing, be firm & know what you want to spend (down & monthly).
