What is this discussion about?
Chevrolet Impala, Sedan
Jan 02, 2007 (5:08 pm)
So I spoke with about 6 dealers in my area today, most of which stated to me that a $30,800 vehicle invoices at $29,000 or so. They can sell me the car at invoice plus $1000 factoy rebate to get me at $28,000.
I had about 4 of them tell me that, they stated there is no more money to put in to that car and no reason to go in to a hole. They also stated their is NO regional incentive and holdback for that vehicle wouldn't get me anywhere near the pricing I was looking for.
I did however speak with Potamkin and Bay chevrolet in Manhattan and Queens respectively. They miraculously got me down to $27,100 which I'm testy to jump at after a months experience. Being a salesman myself, I am pretty confident I am getting the best possible deal as searching the internet for pricing paid for this same exact vehicle with less options was at best $27,693.00.
So $27,100.00 for a $30,700 vehicle is the best that I can see anybody doing for a 2007 fully loaded Impala SS? The only thing the vehicle is lacking is the air brushed aluminum
trim. It has the wood grain instead which I am not a fan of.
Yeah I'm picky.

Hey, I don't blame you. I can't figure out how the very fake looking faux wood is more popular than the faux metal. Luckily, my '06 SS has the metal trim and I'm very happy with it. Hearing your prices for the car makes me feel a little better about the deal I got.

There are a lot of impalas out on the lots. In Nov. 06, three months ago, I felt that I really got a deal, 06 lt, with 3.9 engine, miles-7,400. A lease vehicle built in May 06, lots of warr. left, good condition. Price 14,700. I did not question the price because I felt it was good. It was certified so carried an additional three months warr.. What do you think?

I believe you only had the 3month/3000miles warr. correct me if i am wrong.

I'm ready to buy a '07 LTZ in the next few days.
Using some advice from what I've read on this forum , I've sent out reqests for qoutes from around 25 dealers. I've received about 5 solid prices- the best being 25,275 +TTL
on a MSRP of 28,150. From Edmunds and what I've been seeing online, I was targeting 25000 or better. I'm in the Chicago area. I got a couple quotes for 22K- somthing, but after trying to pin them down I'm pretty sure these are for '06s.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

#136 of 219 '06 LTZ Question
Jan 25, 2007 (12:26 am)
I'm being quoted a price of 16,573 on an '06 LTZ with 23,000 miles. I like the car, but I'm not sure if it's worth that kind of money. I really am totally clueless and would appreciate any advice.

#138 of 219 LT3 2006 price new
Feb 01, 2007 (11:03 am)
I negotiated a 2006 LT3 Impala, new, at my neighborhood dealer for $18,200 - car had msrp of 24,400, no options besides the lt3 package. It was on the lot for a year so they wanted it out. I've no idea what the 06 pricing should be but they made lots of groans that they were under cost (as usual!). I had wanted a LT3 07 in different color but they held fast over 21k...
My purchase was stimulated by the addl $1000 added to my $1200 on the GM card ... which gave me a cash cost of $16200 on the 2006 (excluding taxes & fees). Anyone know where the pricing really is on an 06 model new?

I am looking into purchasing a impala. the room and a v6 is nice. not to many larger sized vehicles with a v6 for $20,000. anything I should look out for about the 2007's? Am i better off to buy one now with a $1,500 rebate or wait till summer for a $2,000 or $2,500 rebate? I really don't pay attention to incentives until I want a new car but what time of year do they offer the greatest incentives?
