I just got a new 06 premium w/awd, foglights, 6cd w/sub, & 5spd auto last week after comparing to Subaru. I got the GV for $22000 out the door, AND they were willing to give me $2000 more for my trade in than the other non-suzuki dealerships. It looks as if Suzuki has something to prove and is willing to do whatever it takes to get us into the new GV. I am very pleased with my purchase and feel we got a good deal with no major haggling.
#23 of 41 My Buying Experience

You must be in the US! I assume you're happy with it.
Just before Christmas, I bought a JLX-L, with the low range gearing, using CarCostCanada. It was $x00 over dealer invoice, but with $1300 in rebates from Suzuki. So it was hundreds under dealer invoice. We didn't do a trade-in,and there was no messing around.

Just leased an '06 Black Luxury GV for 256/mo for 30 months. It appears suzuki is trying to give them away. When I was ready to buy the end of March the only problems I had were trying to find a dealer and getting the exact model I wanted. 1 dealer I found that had just opened said they wouldn't have a black lux in unitl the end of May. I found another dealer a little further away that said They woul dhave a black lux in at the beginning of May. I decided to go with them. Went down there filled ou tall the paper work and left my deposit the 2nd week of April. On the 18th of April got a call from them stating that they just received a black lux and if I wanted it to get down there ASAP because they already had 3 different dealers calling about it and it hadn't even been taken off the truck yet. The 1 problem I had with this dealership was that they did not open on Saturday. How can a car dealer not be open on the busiest foot traffic day of the week. But anyway picked it up on Sunday and have been happy ever since.
#25 of 41 Questions about a new lease

I lament the fact that car man is not running a strictly lease forum any more. There is a paucity of buy & lease info about the GV. The above post, $256/mos leaves out info so I can't assess the deal.
Here is the best offer I have received:
GV Luxury 4wd
- msrp $25,194
- net cap cost $21,813
- money factor 0.00182
- no money down, only the first payment at inception
- 36 payments of $356 ($298 depreciation + $60 lease cost)plus state sales tax
- $11,100 buy-out or residual value
- 3 years, 45,000 miles
I believe the deal is based on about a $900 dealer discount and $2,500 in lease incentives from Suzuki
Comments appreciated by any and all.

Could be a good price for xsport.
I just bought a preimum 06' GV for $18000 + TTL out the door.
#28 of 41 Good Deal

06 GV Luxury 2WD - $21,000 + TTL
Had to drive 150 miles to get that deal, the local dealer wouldn't come off MSRP of $23,199. Cost me $20 in gas to save $2200 - not a bad deal, eh?

Everything can be further negotiated, even if it's not on the direct cost of the car....for example more options, free service for several months.
The worst you can do is to be yourself sold before the deal.....dealers can smell that (desperation and anxiety).
It's your money and you have the right to save as much as ou could..
Look at the previous post...local dealer will not move from MSRP and got a huge saving for driving to another dealer....
People normally bit themselves thinking it's the last available car in the world....
Just look at auto trader or others and check for the car you are trying to purchase, that will give you an indication of depreciation and what actually the car can be sold.
A friend just bought a Buick Lacrosse/Allure and told them....This is my final number (includes tax, fees, on the rodad)....you give me that car for that much and you have got a deal....
There was a few days of silence - that is the period where the dealer believes you will break up and come back to review what went wrong - my friend did nothing.
Then he got the call, "it's a deal" and he got the car for $7000 under MSRP.
#30 of 41 Price for Xsport, AWD
Sep 10, 2006 (7:28 pm)
Hello. I am in the Chicago area and looking into getting a GV Xsport AWD. I went to the Suzuki dealership in Hoffman Estates, and their MSRP for it is 22,699 + 595 delivery, so 23,294 on the sticker.
I wanted to know how much others have been able to negotiate down on the same GV configuration, before any rebates, trade-in and financing.

Jaygee33, are you talking about Advantage Suzuki in Schaumburg?? I did not know there was one in Hoffman Estates. I bought mine at Advantage Suzuki as a demo from the district service manager, because I had a Lemon Verona. Search me up on the Verona Board and you will see. this is a great car, I have the X-Sport with upgraded Rims, Rain Guards, trim Guards, and The exhaust tip. just a fair warning, depending on what dealer you go to depends on how much they will come down. They want to get these on the road, but still put money in their pockets . The #1 Selling dealer of Suzuki Models is Fox Valley Suzuki on New York Street in Aurora, but if you want to visit Advantage, I caould put in a good word for you, I have known the service manager for about 3 years now. I got a sweet deal because of my misfoutune with my Verona, but the rebates are nice, especially if you get in a demo at Fox Valley, because it has never been titled, the price is lower because there is some mileage on it, and you still get all of the rebates, I think I got a total of 1500. That is the 1000 for cash rebate and 500 for loyalty. Well, hope I helped and good luck in the search, it is really a great vehicle from Suzuki.
