#153 of 297 Re: Chevy Trailblazer: Prices Paid & Buying Experience [kirstie_h]

I just traded my 2002 TrailBlazer LS in for a 2005 LT. The list price was $34,935 and it has the sun and sound package with running boards, leather, sunroof, and a Bose 6 cd changer with XM radio. The GM discount price was $28,500 and displayed on the windshield. It also had a $2500 rebate. I owed $14,500 for my old TB and they gave me $16,500 for it. It only had 18,000 miles on it, but no options. I've upgraded to a vehicle with all the bells and whistles including the free one year of OnStar and three months of XM and my payment is $40 less per month, of course its for four more years. I'm definitley pleased with Stanley Chevrolet in McCordsville Indiana. I also purchased an '05 Impala from them in January. It's definitely wierd walking in the garage and seeing a blue TB instead of a red one!
#154 of 297 Trailblazer LS purchase
Jun 25, 2005 (5:15 am)
I purchased an 05 Trailblazer LS on 6/22. With GM employee price and rebate it was $21,500. I added gap insurance at $399 and the dealer arranged financing with a credit union for 5.24% for 72 mos. One thing that was interesting is that I am eligible for a GM discount through my father-in-law. The dealership confirmed that it would not benefit me to use his discount, so GM is really charging the public the same price as employees. My last few cars have been Hondas and Toyotas. I wanted an SUV and the Trailblazer cost less than the smaller, less powerful RAV 4 and CRV. Much less than the similar in power and size Pilot and 4 Runner. I live near the town where Trailblazers are built (Moraine, OH), so it's neat driving a car that my neighbors built. Hope all of our Trailblazer buying and owning experiences go well.

#156 of 297 Envoy XUV
Jun 27, 2005 (2:00 pm)
Have found an '05 6 cylinder Envoy XUV (retractable roof) with 4WD, locking differential, and Onstar. MSRP is $33,480. Dealer wants 26,935 (employee discount) -2500 rebate + 270(doc fee) = 24705 + TTL. Is this a good deal or should I keep shopping?

How is everyone getting such a low price before the rebate? I have contacted a few dealers regarding both the Trailblazer EXT and Envoy XL and am getting quotes after rebate for approximately what other people are quoting before rebate (Envoy XL MSRP $33,810, price after employee discount and rebate is $26,310).
locomo - are you sure that the price of $26,935 is before the rebate? If you check on the GM website the employee price for an Envoy XUV with an MSRP of $33,280 is $26,755 and it says that includes all incentives (which I take to mean rebates).

On the Chevrolet web page under "Special Offers", the current deal for the EXT is a $2,500 rebate on top of the employee pricing. Instead of the rebate, you can get discounted financing. So, if you are going to buy an EXT, get pre-approved financing first. I also used a GM card on my truck, so that may be an additional discount being included.

Getting almost $9,000 off of MSRP is a good deal. I'd ask them to throw in some free oil changes though ...

are you sure that the price of $26,935 is before the rebate?
Yes. This is in the Mid-South region.
The guy I talked to on the phone said the price was the same as posted on the web, $26,935.
I then asked if he'd go lower since I had to drive 200 miles to get it.
He then told me about the $2500 rebate which would make it $24,435 +$270doc +TTL
He wouldn't waive the doc fee, so I told him I'd think about it.
My brother in Pennsylvania was trying to buy a GMC for a graduation present for his daughter.
They wouldn't do the rebate AND employee pricing for him. This is contary to what's on the GM website, so he went elsewhere(non-GM).
#161 of 297 Deal On Envoy SLE
Jul 16, 2005 (6:47 am)
I've traded my Honda Accord for an Envoy SLE with options. The sticker price was $31770 that included Polished wheels, homelink, power driver seat, cruise control, and other stuff. After all the rebates the price of the car was $23373 +TTL. That was $1075 less than the price on the Emp. Discount Flyer on the front windsheiId. Also, I received $13500 for my 2004 Honda DX which I paid $15000 last year but had 18000 miles.
I think I received a great deal. I purchased the SUV in June before the employee discount was extended but I also shopped several quotes from dealer to dealer.
#162 of 297 Current Incentive on Remaining 2005 Vehicles?
Jan 18, 2006 (9:08 am)
Does anyone know what the factory incentives are for remaining, in-stock 2005 Envoy XLs or Trailblazer EXTs?
The gmbuypower.com web site does not show any incentives, but I don't believe that is correct.
Alternatively, does anyone recall what the last rebate GM offered during calendar 2005 was?
