A local Hyundai dealer had an '03 Santa Fe with 54,000 miles on it for sale.
It is a GLS 2WD and appears to be in great shape. No overspray anywhere (no
sign of accident), all tires the same age, and fit and finish are excellent
except for the front hood on the passenger's side, it is up about 1/16"
higher than it should be.
The former owner (one owner car, no problems showed up on a carfax report),
traded it in on an '06 (loyal owner promotion, is my bet, we received one of
those in the mail...) It was a local, North Texas owner.
A) If we buy it, should we consider buying an extended warranty?
B) Is $13,500 a good price? (I don't have time to go on a grail quest for
the perfect private owner deal.)
C) Is the '03 a good vehicle, in general?
My wife loves it and believes we still need hauling capacity.... this is to
replace her car that our daughter totaled, but with THREE kids in college,
we are pressed to cover tuition, let alone a new car.
Feedback? I will have to get things in motion tomorrow evening if it is a
