#1776 of 1998 Volvo XC90 3.2 AWD R-Design 7 Passenger
Jun 24, 2009 (9:06 pm)
I'm looking at a 2009 XC90 3.2 WD R-Design 7 Passenger with Rear Seat DVD system, climate package, and Park Assist. The car is a demo unit with 5,300 miles and is coming with Vovlo's safe and sound maitenance package, etc. The dealer is asking $37,995. I haven't started to negotiate, but what would be an acceptable price? I'm not in need of the car for a few months, but the R-Designs seem to have somewhat limited availability. Would I do better waiting until October?

We are looking at a 2009 XC 90 R, FWD with 3.2 L engine and Technology package.
We've been given an out the door price (tax and fees included) of $37600; that price includes the loyalty incentive, $1500 off. What do you all think? Good price?

Not certain but interested in feedback on whether I am getting a resonable deal. Here is where my conversations stand, may be reference point for you...
I am looking at the 2009 xc90 R AWD and have negotiated thus far to $36000, dealer says he wont go lower (this already includes my loyalty discount). It is the dealer car so selling it as "new" and gets the full 5 yr warranty, but it has 4,300 miles on it. It does not have navigation or entertainment (but does have climate package, premium package and versatility package-ie 3rd row).
Is this a good price?

The 36000 I mentioned above did not include taxes and fees. Did your number?

Yes, the $37600 includes taxes and fees. The price we were quoted without taxes and fees was $34500. They went down almost $500 from the original quote.

#1783 of 1998 What's a reasonably good deal?

I'm looking at a silver 2009 AWD xc90 (3.2) with the following: climate pckg, versatility pckg (meaning 7 passenger) and premium pckg. When I plug the figures into Edmunds, it looks like these are going a good bit under dealer invoice. The only incentive I'm seeing is cash to dealer of $500.00 - but of course, the dealer may be getting some other $$ from the manufacturer.
Any suggestions as to how much off dealer invoice is reasonable? I'm in SC.
#1784 of 1998 Volvo Survey
Jul 16, 2009 (2:06 pm)
I have a question for those in the know... Why is the Volvo survey so important to dealerships?
We purchased another XC 90 3 weeks ago from the same dealership that we purchased our first one. The first experience was simple and pleasant. Our latest experience was the total opposite of our first. The moment that I shook the salesman's hand, I knew it wouldn't be a good experience. The salesperson that took our trade-in vehicle begged (exact words, "I beg of you") my husband not to give them a negative review.
Apparently, these surveys are random and sent out by Volvo. I was hoping we wouldn't get one this time, but we did. If we are honest about our experience, it will not be a positive survey for the dealership. I want to know why this survey is so important for the dealership.
Anyone know? TIA

Sorry to hear your experience wasn't as good,what happened?
Survey used to mean more than it does today. Volvo used to pay dealers back end money based on your CSI score. Now, they don't.
Basically, it's now for bragging rights or as part of the criteria for the President's Club.
The survey is a good way for dealership management to see how their salespeople treat customers. If your salesperson fell short of your expectations, be honest in your answers. The survey doesn't really deal with the dealership as a whole,only with your salesperson. If someone else at the dealer did something wrong, don't punish your salesperson.
