2001 Limited PSD. Black monochrome. 46.8 List. I paid 40.9 + tax. No other fees on top but tax and tags. Got 10K for a '97 Sub LT, loaded, with 105K miles. Took the 0.0 financing for 3 years.

It's hard to figure what you really pay on a new vehicle when you trade one in during the process...anyhow;
I traded a 98 Expy w/36K for $15K and purchased the 2001 Exc. XLT for 33,200. Sticker was 36,700. Invoice was right around 33,000.
#3 of 33 Trading in for the Ex
Nov 01, 2001 (10:07 am)
As per my prior post, I negotiated the price of the new truck ($40.9) before throwing in the trade. Thus, the truck nets out to 30.9. The trade was good 'cause three other GM dealers offered 3800, 9000, and 9500 respectively - so the 10 was great. The 3800 was a joke I told them where to put it.
I find if I bring in a trade too early in the buying process, it makes it hard to negotiate the actual vehicle price. I will act as cash-on-the-barrelhead for the vehicle I want and then bring up the spectre of a trade post price. To get the real trade value, I go to a couple of dealers I don't want to buy from and play the "I'm trading game" from the start. I get a good pre-new car price eval for it, then go back with that info to dealer I want the car from with the high trade in eval elsewhere. Works everytime. Well, the last three times. Maximizes trade in and purchase value.

I bought my 2000 XLT loaded w/everything but heated seats for 28,000. I just called and said this what I want and what I am going to pay. MSRP was 38,000

Purchased a 2002 XLT Premium (True Blue)
Took the $1000 Rebate
Final Price of $32,890
Did all the negotation over the phone or email. Worked 5 different dealerships for best price. Prices ranged from $1000 over (this one is still available) to $600 under invoice. Lets be honest, all are still available. Wife went in and picked out the one she wanted. Did not go to the dealer until ready to write the check. Out in less than an hour.

MSRP on the Vehicle was $49k and change. I paid $40k for it. Options were the Ultimate Group, Limited Premier Package, Tow Mirros, Limited Slip 3.73 Axle Ratio, 6 Disc In dash CD Changer, and some other stuff the dealer added.
Was a great experience and love the truck.
