So guys. I got a call in the morning from my dealer that my Santa Fe has arrived.
We couldn't take the delivery today because of Saturday ( a bit superstitious we are) , so we'll be taking it on Monday.
After reading about the PDIs over here, i have decided i would inspect the car myself. This would be my first time so i need a help with what all to do.
Congoz Aviral,about Saturday,even I too is suffering from same issue in fact yours is only Saturday for me its Tuesday too.No buying of any vehicle on these two days.
Rest from which dealer you are buying the car?
Take the PDI list with you for the PDI it covers all and everything as well as maybe the dealer will also recognize the list on seeing because nearly every dealer has been once or twice exploited by me during the buying process with same list in hand...
Yeah,at the time of PDI just be strict,even a single scratch on the car can cut some money from price if you are angry.
Don't do PDI thinking its a new car,just try your best to find anything that looks like a defect.I try to put as many as possible crosses on the PDI list and then start having fun.. with the dealership guys.
The tougher PDI you do,more attention you will get in future too.The guys will be scared of you,the service adviser will always do best to your car and will always be scared experimenting with your car etc etc.So as we say 'first impression is the last impression'.
The dealership is not the place of praising the the car you are buying,its the place of....(you have understood)
Whoa! A Santa-Fe coming onboard! I love the vehicle, enormous road presence
Many many congratulations! Now as every one said, do start an ownership thread. Looking forward to seeing her pics, if you dont mind
