Good day guys. Im buying a 2012 vgt crdi Sta fe, actually ive already paid a reservation fee (5t only). On my way to work i noticed that Pitstop already has a display of the 2013 sta fe. So, just to satisfy my curiosity i dropped by to check the unit. Just like in the internet site the specs are the same but this 2013 model has a 2.0 turbo and has a 3rd row seat (7 seater) where as in the internet the 2.0t variant is for the 5seater only. To cut the story short, the 2013 sta fe 2.0t diesel 7seater is priced at P2.050m may be I can negotiate it 100k less. That includes all the features stated in the internet but no satvav, back up camera and 5years warranty (3years warranty only at the dealer) which the 2012 has. Ive also noticed that the 3rd row seat entrance which is in the right side of the 2nd row seat is very tight in getting in and out due to the seat that usually tumbles down (Sta fe 2012 model) for an easy entrance and exit to the 3rd row only slides a couple of inches forward.
So my question is, did i make the right choice in getting the 2012 model? Hari gave me a P1.518 with free 3m tint and rain gutter aside from the usual. Basically they have the same hp of around 200 and torque 400. If you were in my situation, are you willing to spend an additional 500k for 2013 Sta fe with the above mentioned unit detail wherein that is their base variant.
Thank you very much!
