#1729 of 1998 $33,850 for 09 AWD XC90
Apr 22, 2009 (4:12 pm)
Was wondering whether I can do better? $33,850 plus ttl from my Volvo dealer for a 2009 XC90 AWD with metallic paint, premium package, versitility package, and climate package for Overseas Delivery which inlcudes free airfare for 2 to Sweden plus two night hotel in Gothenberg. Sounds like a good deal but I was wondering if I can do better and whether Overseas Delivery prices are negotiable (I had heard they were not)?

Hi: We had owned a Jeep and Infiniti a few months back.
You could find my problems with the Jeep all over the Jeep forum!
We decided we didnt need two cars, so went to a VW 2006 Touareg. It started having numerous problems from the get go. Even our purchased warranty didnt give us a sense of confidence.
It had the GPS, parking sensors, leather with heated seats, CD changer (in the trunk). Lots of bells and whistles, but also problems.
So today we ditched it.
Found a 2008 Volvo, with Blue Tooth, leather, 5000 miles demo never owned. I wish it had the blind spot sensors, but alas no I dont think it does.
Got it for around $27k. We're hoping it was a wise decision.
Just today the Touareg was diagnosed with a bad $300 headlight, Broken seat belt part ($169) and some other problems which no one found when we bought it in Feb.
Hoping we made a better choice, a better vehicle with a few less sirens, bells and whistles to go bad.
Any thoughts welcome on this..........

>>Got it for around $27k.
Not a bad price. What's important is that you like it.
>> I wish it had the blind spot sensors,
BLIS doesn't really work too well. If you change lanes counting on BLIS 100% without checking your side mirrors, you are guaranteed to get into an accident in a week. I think it is accurate about 50% of the times at best. So you didn't miss much here. It is a feature that could reduce your chance of accident, so it is not completely useless.

Dear MFW - Thanks so much for your insight. This makes me wonder that if I should get the cost down to $31K and then go ahead and lease the car. I know that there is a ton of lease cash ($4 or $5K). So then in essense, I would be buying the car for $31K less $4K (or $5K) lease cash...
I know this would be a serious pain to negotiate, but it would seem to be logical.... The cap cost would be around $27K (depending on negotiation and actual lease cash) and I would be paying for the interest and the difference b/w the cap cost and the residual. I could go ahead and buy the car any time during the lease for the remaining obligation.. (cap cost, less principle payments)... What do you think?

I never leased a car before. So I don't really know what kinda price you get get for leasing. I always assumed that it is a wash at best. You'd think they will make the money one way or the other. I don't see why they would lease a car to you and make less money.
But, if you can get the cost down to 31k less lease cash, then it seems to be a good deal. Maybe you can calculate the total cost of ownership for the duration you want to keep the car, and go with the cheaper choice. I know that if you buy the car, you get 4 scheduled maintenance for free, that's about $1k value.
Also I think Volvo completed their 09 xc90 production at the end of March. All 09's should have reached dealership now. So whatever you see on their lot is what you are going to get, unless you want to wait a few months for 2010 models...

In Westchester County, NY - have a quote for $36,600 (pre-tax) for the '09 AWD 6 cyl w/premium, versatility & convenience.
How does that sound?

Btw, I noticed there are no used vehicles around here for sale.
Do people like these so much that they hang on to them?
If so, makes me feel better.
So far, very nice drive, nice color (the white), nice dealership and pretty good terms for the 2008.
Not overwhelming on the frills, but we had a Touareg for only two months and we never figured out half the bells and whistles on that thing.

I am interested in buying volvoxc90 with premium, versatility package, blind spot information system, blue tooth. I am offered about 36k currently in atlanta area. Any suggestion if it is appropriate price. The dealer is lowering the price by about 1200 below invoice after giving all incentives and rebates, available to me. This is about 6500 dollars below the old mrsp.
Also, would you tell me about tour deal at 33850$ for xc90 awd and where can I find this. Does it have warranty as volvo bought in usa.
