How can you use $2,400 GM card rebate? I though the GM card allowance is only $1,000 on Malibu?

So has anybody just figured out what percent % to subtract off the sticker price to reach invoice?
Or should we be able to purchase a 2010 below invoice and if yes how much below.
Everyone is talking about how much they got off from their GM cards and rebates but I think knowing a % to deduct from the sticker price would be the most help. Then everyone can add their rebates , incentives, GM card ,etc.but EVERYONE will be able to see what you really got off of the sticker price.
I am thinking 8-9% off sticker is doing very well. any other thoughts??

Hi zin22. If I was in the market for a Chevrolet Malibu right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of right around dealer invoice minus the $2,000 consumer cash that is currently available on it.
Either that or I would shoot for invoice and finance it through GM at 0% for 5 years.
You can look up the dealer invoice price of the exact model that you are interested in over in the New Vehicle Pricing section of Edmunds.com.

Would you please explain how the AAA buying program works. I am not a member, but could join if it will save me some money.
#748 of 765 Fair price for a 2010 Malibu LTZ
Feb 22, 2011 (11:24 pm)
Looking at a 2010 Malibu LTZ, 27K miles. The dealer price is around $21,500. Edmunds TMV has it priced at around $20,000. I am assuming V6 motor but I am not sure as I haven't been able to look at the car to verify and I don't trust the ad as it lists equipment that does not match the LTZ trim level. This will be purchased Arizona and so taxes, titling and license fees will total around $2300.
I am thinking that offering $20,000 OTD would be a good starting point, and would certainly hope to get that price, but I think that is a bit low considering that would be asking them to lop off over $3800. The price of the car would be $17,800 before taxes and such. Is that price worth shooting for or is it too low ballish?? Would getting out the door for $21,500 be a fair price? I don't want to pay over $21,500 including all the fees and such, but if that price is too low, then I may have to adjust for that. But I think it is in the ballpark of what is fair.
(Note: I understand there are factors here which I may not be able to control like the price the dealer paid for the car at trade and any other doc fees the dealer may tack on that could affect the price)

I bought a new 2011 Malibu. I think you should do the same.
I got a 2500 gm rebate with 1000 gm loyalty rebate with 500 dealer cash and 2000 gm credit card credit and the dealer was at 2000 off MSRP.
The MSRP was 25500 (LT2 4cyl plus sunroof) and I got it for 17,200 and out the door at 18,700.
You can also get a Pontiac G6 2010 rental with about 17000 miles and the v-6 engine for about 16,000 around columbus, Ohio. The 2010 g6 was available to rental fleets and is actually a Malibu with pontiac sheet metalw which is actually quite nice.

What exactly is the status of the new 2012 Malibu? This is supposed to be a redesigned car on a shorter wheelbase (which means that I won't buy it) but although "Spy" photos are all over the net I would assume that it would be manufactured in May if it is coming out. Does anybody know about this?
#751 of 765 Used 2010 Malibu
May 22, 2011 (1:17 pm)
OK so i am trying to buy a used LT1, with 14K on it. Keep in mind 2011 are on sale already, i was offered a brand new 2010 for 19K (MSRP 24K) The asking price for the used that i want is $16,999. I can clearly see that the asking price is BS because for 2 more K i can buy a brand new 2010 or even 2011. My question is what would be the right offer for this car? I am willing to put $3,000 or $4,000 as a down payment, my understanding is that that is above normal.
I have been doing some research and i think i can get used 2010 (old design) Sonata that is a former fleet car at $12-$11 with 40+K miles on it, and by all account Sonata is better than Malibu, so is it stupid for me to expect to pay around 11K before taxes and registration for 2010 Used Malibu.
This is the car i am looking at, asking price is $16,999 as of this moment, any suggestions. Also keep in mind that i am open to other cars, Malibu is my 3rd choice behind used 2010 Mazda3 and used 2010 Sonata.

Dealers tell me that GM auction prices for Malibus are high but won't tell me what they are going for at auction. I assume that it is around 13-14 for a 2009. The local dealer wants 16k for a used 2009 ( ex-rental car) with 34k miles on it. That is BS. I can buy a new 2011 for about 19,500 out the door. Granted it is a base model but it comes with all the normal equipment that one would want -cruise, auto, PW, PM etc. GM has reduced the rebate from $2500 to $2000 but you can get an AARP discount of $1000 plus a military discount or credit union discount of about $1000.
I think that it is FAR better to buy an LS Malibu new than mess with one that is practically out of warranty or IS out of warranty and driven at Avis or Alamo by 200 people or more. A program Cadillac is one thing. A Chevy is something else. If you want a used car buy one from a private owner and MAKE SURE that he IS a private owner not a curbstone dealer. Ask for maintenance details, etc. If he is a curbstoner he won't have them.
