#1612 of 1998 $25K for 2006 XC90?
Oct 24, 2008 (12:50 pm)
Need your advice before I purchase a certified pre-owned 2006 Volvo XC90 with 20,000 miles.
It has leather interior, sun roof, power passenger side, premium package, and 3rd row. It does not have navigation or DVD headrests. It is certified and was bought at auction for $21,000 (we researched this, they didn't tell us!).
Is $25,000 way too high? The original price was $26,500 and we negotiated down to $25,000. They explained the $4K difference in cost as the fee to certify as pre-owned and the cost of the auction, etc. Is this BS? Should we get it for $21K?
At first $25K seemed good, but the more I read, the more I think it might still be too high. At this point, if it is too high, what are the magic words to get them to come down to a more realistic and competitive price? If is IS a good deal, tell me so I can jump on it. Thanks!

No, you shouldn't get it for $21k.
Avg certification costs for an XC90 is $2500
So, they are trying to make $1500, which is fair.

gpk1: I think it is maybe $2k too high based on quotes I am receiving. Check the lease edmunds forum on deals people are getting on leases. I just had a dealer tell me that they will sell me a new 2008 V8 for under $40k with climate and Nav.

2008 XC90 V8
Ember Black Metallic
W/ Climate Package, BLIS
Selling Price $37672
- This includes $4000 manufacturers incentive, $2000 loyalty, and $750 holiday discounts. Basically if you dont include the rebates, the dealer's giving me $3000 off of invoice. How much more do you think I can push lower? Also, for that $1000 Costco rebate, I know you have to be a member before Nov. 1, but if the dealer really wants a deal, can they still give me the $1000 off if I became a member after that date? Or is it not the at the dealers discretion, and only Costcos? Thanks for the input.

The Costco incentive is at Costco's discretion, nor the dealers.

So are you saying that the current incentive for a 2008 is
$4000 Dealer Incentive
$2000 Customer Loyalty (is this per dealership?)
$1750 Costco Incentive
AND that's all in addition to being able to get employee or X plan pricing?

I would like to confirm the incentives as well.
Does the $2000 customer loyalty require previous Volvo owner/lease?
Is there a link to the $4000 dealer incentive?
Volvo is also giving away $750 Holiday Gift Card. Can that be applied to the purchase of 08 model?

Owner Loyalty requires that you CURRENTLY own or lease a Volvo
The $750 gift card can be applied to the price of the car.
