If I was looking to buy a Prius now I would be offering Invoice, minus holdback, minus all incentives, minus another 1,000 or so. Yeah it is the only Toyota really selling now but Toyota is still in a sales free fall.
#3999 of 4048 BMW 328Xi incentives?
Mar 09, 2010 (9:32 pm)
Edmunds is showing two incentives for 2010 328xi sedan. The $2500 "Spring Drive Credit" and an $1840 All Wheel Drive Credit.
BMW's website only lists the $2500 Spring Drive Credit, no mention of the All Wheel Drive Credit. The dealer I've have contacted by e-mail also only mentioned the Spring Drive Credit.
Is there something I'm missing, or is there in error in the Edmunds listing?

my guess is the bolded phrase:
$1840 Cash to Customer start: 03/02/2010 end: 04/30/2010 Get Dealer Pricing
Restrictions $1,840 All Wheel Drive Credit can be used in conjunction with Lease, OwnersChoice, Retail Finance or Select contracts. It can also be used for customer purchases not utilizing leasing or financing through BMW Financial Services. Please see your dealer for details.

Audi listed on edmunds.com as providing an incentive of 2.9%APR for 60months on the purchase of a 2010 audi A6. The listed audi premier dealership would not honor this and offered only an interest rate of 3.9%APR for 60 months. I have a credit score of 810 .What recourse if any would anyone recommend?

This might entail some time on the phone calling other dealerships, but that's really the only thing you can do. Unfortunately, you can't force the dealership to participate in that incentive program. I'm not sure what the process is in deciding which dealerships will or won't participate, but perhaps they're moving enough stock to not need to provide incentive?

It's typical of a lot of Euro make dealers... They are participating in the incentive program.. just marking up the promotional rate by 1% to make extra profit.. The bank pays them about 70% of the extra interest, upfront..
#4006 of 4048 Rebate for financing
Sep 09, 2010 (4:39 am)
Questions ... I'm interested in purchasing a new car for $28,000, my trade-in is worth $25,000. So, I planned on paying the difference plus taxes etc myself. But, the car has a $1,000 rebate if you finance through their identified firm. Could I take advantage of that? That would mean the car's selling price would be $27,000 ... so I'd be financing $2,000. Is there a minimum amount one must finance before they can take advantage of rebates like this? If not ... the financing percentage is NOT 0%. Would I be able to simply pay off the $2,000 loan the next month, or would I need to really pay across 36 months? Thanks.
