The UK specification 2009 5-seat Santa Fe should have had one as standard although it was omitted on the 7-seat.

Hope you're sitting down for this FL Santa Fe Parcel Shelf 2.2 CRDi DIESEL 2009 - 2012 VAT and delivery is extra!

Try a scrapyard or Ebay.

Two rods and some fabric. That's the way I'm going. The OEM cover is an overpriced piece of junk.

Holy crap! No kidding! 457.84 + VAT, and that's the discounted Petch's price?!?

What I wanted to ask...

"scrapyard" ?

Is this recently coming into vogue? I had always heard them called "breaker's yards" when I was there.

We more often irreverently call them 'junkyards' here, though the newer vogue expression 'auto parts recycler' seems to be taking hold in the industry. Makes 'em all sound real 'green', but we know that's not why people take their business there. It's those 457.84 cargo covers!

I always thought that "breaker's yard" was North American - or related to ships!

As a younger motorist I had to scour scrapyards and remove the parts myself but Health & Safety stop that these days - there are are few "auto parts recyclers" who deal with recent economic write-offs but most UK cars go straight in the crusher at the end of life with only tyres, fuel and oil removed for specific handling.

Actually the UPick junkyards are becoming more in vogue here. You pay a nominal amount($2) to get in and they tell you where the cars that match up might be in the yard. The one I went to couldn't tell you which parts were still left, but the parts are dirt cheap.

Ruperts Trooper is just showing his age!! As mentioned earlier, the term has been changed to stay "with it" so that places like council "municipal" dumps, which handled all your domestic waste, are now referred to as recycling centres.
Back on topic, I keep a large black table cloth in the car if I need to "hide" anything. Combined with the tints, it's pretty good. I appreciate its not as classy as a proper luggage cover but at that price...it works for me.
