Is it safe to buy a Hyundai Santa Fe online through a broker?

I am buying a new Hyundai Santa Fe 2010 plate via an online company and the expected delivery is next week. The company seems to be fine but I have to part with the entire amount cleared into their account before delivery - does that sound acceptable to you?

If you are getting delivery next week you are doing quite well, because there is currently a shortage of the excellent new R Type 2.2 chain cam diesel engines.
