If this is a brand new vehicle (test driven some so odo < ~100 miles but not a demonstrator vehicle), then I would say two things: (1) It sounds like a terrific deal, and (2) The Edmunds TMV value is not credible; some buyers are getting new vehicles for very much less than the TMV.

Brand new vehicle approx 15 miles on it w/ plastic still covering the leather seats. Contacted internet sales rep who quoted a price of 31, 800 and then got them down to 30, 800 as I had saw a similar vehicle at another dealership for that price. Was pretty easy. There is a $2500 dealer incentive to move the 2008s by the end of this month.

I picked one up at the end of August for about $6500 off MSRP it was a demo with 50 miles, so the warranty clock had been ticking for 6mo or so. Stickered just shy or $40,000, got it for $33,500
#341 of 390 Good price for V70 R?
Feb 06, 2009 (8:02 am)
We have found a 2005 V70 R for sale from a private owner. It has 35,000 miles on it and seems to have had all service completed by the dealership and is in good condition.
What would be a good price for this vehicle?
Are there any recurring issues with this model we should be sure to have the mechanic check?

Try asking here.
don't forget to include ALL the details. Does it have heated seats (climate pack), moonroof and memory seats (premium pack)? Color and location help, too.
#343 of 390 Puzzled?!?!
Feb 09, 2009 (6:30 pm)
Is it really possible that nobody has purchased a 2008 or 2009 XC70 since 09/30/08? If so, what aren't the dealers willing to deal? I have talked with several dealers in Central Illinois and Eastern Iowa and this is all I am coming up with...
$10000 off a 2008 (sticker:44,960) and $9000 trade for my '04 XC70 with 51,000 miles. $25,473 OTD with tax, etc. Been on the lot for over a year.
The numbers on the '09's (t6 or I6) are about the same.
At this point, I am willing to just sit and wait for the Mktg $ on the '09's.
Am I being unreasonable? I just figured that if all these volvos are sitting on the lots, I would expect a little more?

I'm also trying to figure this out. From everything we hear, car dealers are desperate to move cars - we're told they're practically giving them away. I would think they'd be happy to have some cash flow at this point, but I guess I'm not being realistic. I don't need a new car but it thought it would be nice to have one. I'm not going to do anything unless I can get the car I want at the price I want. I'll keep my eyes open, is all at this point.

well, dealers don't want to take a big loss, either. They need manufacturer support. And, I don't know all the circumstances or inner workings, but maybe Volvo being on the auction block from Ford could affect such support. (?)
