I am attempting to buy a 2007 Santa Fe Limited but dealer does not have what I am looking for. They are trying to get one with their allocation. I sent a couple of emails to Customer Service and when I did not get a reply from either one of them, called them on the phone but all they did is notify the dealer that I had called?
Manual Transmission Hyundai Santa Fe 2015 User
What is so funny about the whole thing is I only live 91 miles from the Hyundai Plant in Montgomery. For some reason Hyundai does not allow anyone to order a vehicle unlike other manufacturers from what the dealer and customer service told me? I also sent a letter to the Hyundai Motor America in Fountain Valley California but have not received any reply from them either? First time poster, and whole-heartedly agree about the pretzel logic in allocations. I have been going crazy in So.Cal trying to get a 2007 AWD, Limited, Touring+Ultimate that doesn't seem to exist. Last week I saw the headquarters with those new Santa Fe's with red ribbons on top in the lobby and front grass, I was soo tempted to go in and get some answers.however getting home was more important. My AAA dealer rep at the local dealer says he will talk to distribution on Monday.

Sounds like a broken record. I will be 65 years old this spring and have purchased many vehicles over the years by ordering what I want from the factory including the one that I am now driving. Hyundai should allow one to order the vehicle with the options they want too! Depending on an allocation and having the dealership trying to spend time locating a vehicle from another dealer + the cost????? Hyundai dealership web sites are BADLY lacking with info on new vehicle inventory, colors, options, etc!
Sales staff are are not aware of options and other features and many do not have access to a computer so they could be informed of issues like TSBs, incentives, etc., nor do they have an email address for the most part. In my opinion they have great vehicles but the entire sales procedure is badly lacking!!!
I have been trying to get a Santa Fe Limited Edition now for a month and may get it today??? Ended up getting the Gray Leather rather than the Beige that I wanted. They have a great product and much effort has went into improvements in their vehicles. Looks like the same effort should be put into sales?? GWilly, Got mine in So Cal too.
Out here in San Diego, Kearny Mesa Hyundai/Subaru. Ran into the same problem with my color combonations and trim. However, my salesman was a trooper. A few times a week he'd call me and tell me where and how close he could get to my options.
Even contacted the factory to see when then next batch of SF's were to be ran so I could look to expect it. I finally conceded on choosing 3 different color combo's in order of perference, till alas one came in that was everything I wanted except for the AWD. But long story short, he stayed on top of it to the point where his manager wasn't too pleased with the time he was spending on it. Offering to drive to Tuscon to pick one up, even. All this without a cent of a downpayment. EXCELLENT service here.
Good luck man, and hope it all works out soon for you. FYI, I was told that Alabama planned a new batch to be ran in December. Also, they ship trims/colors/options according to demographic polls. I.e.- if cherry red don't sell well in Orange County, they won't continue to regularly ship cherry reds. At least that's what I was told. Same here in southeastern Alabama. Georgia and Florida are about 20 miles from us here and if you buy a Santa Fe in either state when you get your tags here you pay the tax.
Here in this state it is @ 3.25% while in both Florida and Georgia it is higher. It took a month in locating the Santa Fe Limited that I wanted and ended up with Gray Interior rather rather than what I wanted but kind of like the Gray now. Hyundai has a great product and Love the Santa Fe but needs much work in the sales areas and needs to bring the sales folks at the dealers up to speed. They should have a computer on their desk with an email address, their web site should have the current new vehicle inventory including colors options, etc., like other manufactures do and one should have the option of ordering a vehicle!! The last vehicle (Chevy) I owned, I ordered it from the Factory and it came in and they called me. Hyundai could improve sales figures if they think a bit 'out of the box' and make improvements in the dealerships!
Have also found that many of the sales staff are not aware of vehicle options, TSBs, etc. I am well pleased with my new Santa Fe but not the experience I went through in obtaining it!
Hi Guys I've put a post in the main maintenance and repair thread as well but I thought it was worth starting a new topic as well. I have a 2001 Santa Fe 2.7AWD with 68,000 miles on the clock. Driving to work I went to pull out, the car started to move and then lost all drive to the wheels as if it had popped out of gear. Taking the car to a gear box specialist they have now told me that both the transfer case and gear box need replacing to fix the problem (mainly because the actually broken part between the two is not sold separately by Hyundai). To supply and fit these parts will cost £5300 and this is POUNDS so I don't know what that works out at in Dollars. I turned green when I was told, the whole car is only worth about £6000.
Oh, and over here we don't get the 10-year drive train warranty. I've contacted Hyundai Customer Services and they are refusing to help out at all. So, I am faced with the decision of having to pay the money, which would probably take 3 years to pay for, or scrap the car and lose my money that way and have to by something cheap instead. This is a ridiculous situation. How can a six year old car with 68000 miles on it possible need a repair that is nearly the same as the entire value of the car. Hyundai, you need to sort yourselves out.
I will never be buying another Hyundai ever again. Oh, by the way, this problem all started out with that thumping in the axels when engaging reverse and I was told it was nothing - you have been warned!
