Don’t sweat the horsepower. Remember that you were considering the 3 cylinder Rogue which is not a horsepower beast either. If my queue number at the dealership was greater than 5 I’d be seriously considering other options. If the rumour is true about January production then cars will trickle in over the span of months. I am number 4 so I set my expectations at June. I also have a Sportage HEV on order. Price is about the same as the PHEV after rebates. The HEV has a couple hundred in sneaky dealer fees that they are denying but if it comes in around May I will take it if there is no news about Santa Fe.So I am kinda at a crossroad….i have an opportunity to buy a cancelled HEV that is coming to the dealer in a couple months…. and i plan to discuss numbers with the sales guy to see how things line up…but at the end of the day, thisi is still not the same car we ordered. A couple differences between the two, Colour (not a big issue - though I am getting tired of black cars), less Horsepower than the PHEV (226 vs 260 for the PHEV) and leatherette seats instead of leather (not a game changer - might wear better)… but the thing is there is less than an $1000 difference between what ‘i want' and what ‘i might be able to get now'.
SO yeah.. I will talk numbers and see what happens… but with all the rumours flying around… If given the above scenario, what would you guys do?
i can’t tell you what to do…only what I am doing.
