Volvo XC90, SUV
#1798 of 1998 Re: What Should I Offer? [dallaspatent]

For what it is worth, I tried to buy a 2009 XC90 for about a month during August/September. The dealers have very few XC90's for sale and were refusing to go much below LIST price. I contacted ALL Volvo dealers in a 15 state area and most have no XC90 to sell. Those that do have an XC90 to sell are looking for list price and not negotiating at all. I've decided to wait and either buy a 2010 (if they go back to substantial discounts from List price) or go to another brand where pricing is more competitive. Volvo dealers are apparently not hurting in the least.
Also, based on my questions to dealer sales reps, a lot of Volvo sales reps seem grossly misinformed about the features of their cars. One sales rep in Dallas actually told me that the BLIS is an after-market device that is bolted on by the dealer. Seriously. I would recommend that you check and double-check ANYTHING that they tell you because there's a good chance they are wrong. Very unprofessional and undertrained sales reps. I'm quite put off of Volvo - the poor mechanical quality, lack of knowledgeable people, and uncompetitive pricing. My major problem is that I have to have a third row and Volvo is one of only two cars that are not overly large and has a third row that a person can actually get into. If my wife was more flexible, I'd forget Volvo completely.

Wow, maybe it depends where you live?
Our dealer is very very good, very much in the know and paying $27k for a 2008 with 5000 demo miles, plus paying off our other vehicle--well,it doesnt get any better than that!

With the current incentives available, you should be able to get a great deal on an equally equipped left over 2009 or perhaps even a 2010. I paid $36,500 + TTL for a 2009 V8 R-Design with an MSRP of $55,656 this past August. So I am sure you can get a better deal on what you are looking for. If you are near Los Angeles, I will be more than happy to help you find a great deal.

That is a heck of a deal ! I should start shopping around now that my lease is up.
What were the options on that R-Design?

I'll take you up on your offer to help -- dealership? strategy?
#1804 of 1998 XC90 price

The options on the R-Design are Blis, Climate and Tech.
I shopped several dealerships here in the L.A. & Orange County area. This deal was offered from Culver City Volvo. Although, Southbay Volvo is and was my dealer of choice, but they did not have a V8 R-Design in stock and Culver City was unwilling to trade.
#1805 of 1998 Costco Incentives on XC60, XC70 and XC90
Nov 15, 2009 (5:41 am)
This morning I got an email from Costco offering:
Purchase a new Volvo XC60, XC70 or XC90 between November 3, 2009, and
January 4, 2010, to receive:
* Volvo employee pricing for the XC60
* $500 off Volvo employee pricing for the XC70 and XC90
* PLUS all available rebates and incentives
* PLUS a $500 Costco Cash Card
How do I figure out what "employee pricing" is for the XC90?

Apparently employee pricing is dealer invoice.

Thanks. That being the case, I've already seen a price below invoice on Overstock, so I'm wondering if I should try for the Overstock price plus the Costco incentives.
