May 16, 2013 (1:09 am)
Every dealer I talk to is telling me that the USAA discount is the best possible deal for the car I am looking at, E350. None of them is willing to go below the predetermined USAA discount. Unless there is another preexisting MB incentive that can beat the USAA discount.
Is this true from everyone else's experience?
I do not know of any. The Mercedes Benz Club of America has a $500 certificate (as of April 1) that can be combined with USAA after 1 year of uninterrupted membership. I was able to get my new 2014 for $2500 Unser invoice, because I had printed my MBCA coupon prior to April 1st when it was $1000.
Others have posted here that the bought their cars for even less. IMHO, there are deals to be made if you shop!
But in general, USAA pricing is "usually" the best when a refresh is introduced which is the case with the 2014 E 350 Sedan.

Will this be considered a good deal on a 2013? The MSRP is around 65K

May 21, 2013 (9:05 am)
My old hand me down 1995 C280 has finally bitten the dust... Having read through hundreds of posts on the E350 from all you knowledgable folks, I wondered if you could give me some advice.
I'm looking to purchase a 2011/2012 E350 4Matic w/P1 package CPO. Would be interested in anything with <25k miles. I'm wondering where I should be aiming in terms of price for the 2011, or if you think it's worth stretching further for the 2012? I'm based in the NE, around Boston. Prices as advertised seem to range from $36k-43k from my initial research. Thank you.

On any normal day, MB E350 sells for approximately $6k off MSRP, which is like $2k below invoice. 15% of $65k would be $55k, which is $10k off MSRP. Considering the fact that 2014s are on the lot, $10k off MSRP sounds reasonable to me.

I negotiated $10k off for my brother-in-law. I read some folks got $14k off MSRP.

What is the MF and RV for May or June, for a 2014 E-350 RWD sedan, 36 months, 15,000 miles? MSRP is $61355.00, price after USAA discount is $59956.00. The dealer gave me an estimate of .00198 for MF and RV 61%. My credit is over 800 and they have not run my credit. I find the MF too high. If the car is special ordered, will the MF be the one for the month of the delivery? Should I negotiate MF and RV before ordering the car?.

For those of you waiting for the 2014 Bluetec, I placed an order for the car, and my dealer has advised that it should come in around Aug. 20-25th.

The money factor and residual value will be those listed at the date/time the lease is consummated, not the date when the car is ordered. When you take delivery of the car, RV and MF is as of the date the lease is signed.
Hope this helps you.

May I ask what price were you able to get it for.

They didn't have pricing information at this time as they could simply put in the request. I intend to lease, and I anticipate the RV will be high like for the past Bluetec (vs. gas E35). And, I will do MSDs again to reduce the MF. I do qualify for fleet and loyalty, if this is available in Aug/Sept, so those should help reduce the purchase price.
