I used the GM BuyPower site just looking for the Yukon I wanted. The great thing about it is....you can sit at home and find a dealer that has the car you want. After I settled on a few I decided to email a "best price" request (what the heck....might as well). What do you know.....I actually got real numbers from all of the dealers I emailed. No beating around the bush! I've not bought yet, but at least I have a good idea of their best price and the trade won't be all "smoke and mirrors". I've been known to spend 6 weeks trying to get to a dealer's bottom line. When they email you with a price $25 under invoice less the GM rebate, I'm satisfied. Now all I have to do is wiggle outta my trade payoff and I got a new Yukon! I think the GM BuyPower site is great even if it's just a way to locate the car with the options you want. Getting a real price without spending more than 30 minutes on the internet is icing on the cake.

I emailed a dealership requesting their best price on a vehicle and informed them that I am ready to buy in the next week.
I did receive an email response within 24 hours but the response was, the Trailblazer LT you are interested in has been sold and we don't have any LT models that are even close to the one you requested a quote on.
I guess they never update their vehicle list because the site had four vehicles listed that were close to my request. Then I go home, open the paper, and there was my requested vehicle advertised with a dealership discount.

What are you doing nowadays for Yukon's and Denalis -- In the northeast , it seems hard to get anything reasonable. I know they are popular... I see on an earlier post, invoice price for a Yukon, and than less the rebate? Where!

I am at $500 over on denali's, about $300 on a yukon. In january I try and keep the floorplan as light as possible. I am just north of Syracuse NY in Liverpool. The problem with these types of vehicles is the people that buy them have trades that they want all the money in the world. Stripping deals apart the average I gave is right about where I try and be.

that is where I am! Can I borrow your handle for the next couple of weeks. After 5 weeks we put cars back on the showroom floor on friday. If I had a few extra hours to spare I would share some very funny stories related to our fire. Things are getting back to normal, now all I need is a customer.

I'm in the neighborhood, albeit over the bridge.
I didn't get to the fire tho, missed the truck!
