#284 of 775 Question on the $2000 roundup people had in December
Mar 19, 2005 (10:25 pm)
I was reading posts that were done in December during all the huge incentives. I am looking to buy a 2005 Maxx at end of year this year. I see many people posting about Chevy GM card raising their allowance to 2000 points.
Now I have over $500 in GM cash right now did that mean that GM took my $500 in GM cash and raised it to 2000 rounding up? or did they take the limit that I could apply to the Malibu 2000 from 1000 or whatever limit was set at the time. Thanks for the clarification.

New Maxx owner here - so far really like the car. I am coming from a 2001 Volvo S60 2.4t, and I think this car is just about as nice while being more practical with more creature features.
Galaxy Silver exterior.
Anyway, here was the deal
$24,420 Sell Price (GM Supplier price) minus
$500 GM bonus cash minus
$500 GM lease cash minus
$500 GM Auto Show in Motion Incentive minus
$1000 GM March Madness cash minus
$3450 GM Card rebate money plus
$499 dealer fee plus
$595 GM Aquisition fee plus
$850 start-up fees (1st month payment, taxes on rebates, tag, title, state fees).
56% residual and 3.5% interest rate for 36 month, 12k miles/yr. lease.
So, no money out of pocket at all (just drove the car home) - payment with tax is $223/mo.
And, as part of the deal, the dealership is cutting me a check for $499 to refund the dealer fee.
Great deal, great car!

Yes, there still is the few Rebates but I'm Still looking at at Maxx w/leather (no DVD, no MoonRoof or side curtains) for $22.5K out the door, and thats It! no haggling? And who wants XM or OnStar?..

pao/all: I just received an 8 page GMPP coverage agreement, courtesy of our good friends up in Pennsylvania. All of my vitals are entered onto page 2, and shows the expiration date exactly as advertised (date of GMPP purchase + miles added on from your odometer at the time of purchase). The pamphlet also succinctly outlines what is/is not covered, and gives a phone number to call should there be any information incorrectly entered from what I provided them. The whole process took less than 2 weeks. Now, as the brochure says on the front: I have "peace of mind for the long run."

I'm curious why you decided to go with PA instead of TX.

10 phone calls and an odometer that read 11,944 miles, that's why. All they needed to do was fax one simple piece of paper to me. It took them over 2 months to do it. They faxed it to me 2 days after I purchased from Black's. TOO LATE! Blacks is only $50 more right now. I'd say the service and desire to earn my business was worth every penny.

We were looking at 2004 Maxx LTs in fall 2004. Had several dealers in southeast Michigan willing to sell for $500 below GMS, then subtract all rebates/incentives.
We ended up buying a demo with 5,000 miles because the dealer was willing to go $1,500 below GMS.
All of my 'negotiating' was done via email.

hey great...Im about to order my plan as well...one question..how did they verify your mileage..or did they...I assume if you have had any serivces done at a GM dealer that can access to show the last mileage recorded.....but just curious

you are right on.....they can't tell your mileage. I took a date stamped digital photo of my odometer on the day of my order, just in case they got suspicious that I was only 55 miles away from 12k. The guys in TX told me that they did not care if I went over the 12k mark, just as long as I did not put a number higher than 12k on my form. I would never do that, so I went with Blacks. Bottom line, the only way GM would know if you were lying, was if you went in for service and it had a higher number documented on the service request form.
