Buying a 2010 Hyundai Santa Fe, and saving $5000 off of MSRP.
We chose this car for reasons of popularity , overall owner satisfaction rating and price versus options based on other manufacturers offerings. The dealer was chosen to start the car purchase on a clean slate. We tried to deal with the staff at Jim Pattisson Hyundai but they were very unprofessional , Maple Ridge Hyundai we chose to bypass for other reasons . Use the Report and start the negotiations at $500 below the 3% markup point on the vehicle. We finished the entire business dealing within 1.5 hours. The price we paid is the dealer cost plus 3.5% plus PDI less any of the applicable factory to dealer incentives. as well as we put about $1400 worth of options on it for about $1150 . The dealer clued in pretty much at the start that we new their price on the car and were not going to be starting from MSRP down. Once that was out of the way negotiations went quickly and efficiently. Everyone left the table happy. This was the first time buying a new car I didn't feel like I left much money on the table . Don't buy the extra's that the sales manager will try to push on you as most of it is expensive and useless at the same time, I guess they need to try . There was about $6000 worth of needless stuff they will try to get you to buy that is a waste of money. Just say no to those and you will have purchased your car for a fare price.
