Try and take it on a long test drive, if possible use it over a weekend.
I too have had a discovery at the top of my wish list since they first came out and finally last month managed to scrap the money together to buy a 04 HSE. What a let down. The driving position is not centered and becomes very uncomfortable on long journeys, you're squashed up to the door, the rear passengers find it extremely difficult to get in and out of due to the small doors, road driving is sluggish and even though brand new has been returned to the dealership for a duff window motor, side mirror heater not working and a very noisy squeeky clutch.
I test drove it for about an hour on my own with rose coloured glasses firmly in place and now regret it. I wish I had my Santa Fe back!
