Volvo S40, Sedan
#428 of 698 05 leftover Volvo price
Jan 22, 2006 (10:43 am)
A local dealer has an '05 S40 for $30,000 with these features:
Dynamic trim pkg
Climate / Bixeon pkg
Invoice = $33,676
MSRP = $36,122
selling at $30,000
As this is a 2005 model, I'm trying to determine what a fair price is for the car. I offered $29,000 but the dealer said they have no room to budge. Also they have it priced below their invoice, does Volvo provide any incentives to their dealers to sell previous year cars, after the turn of the new year? We like the car, but we would probably buy one without AWD, and definetly not the Dynamic Trim package, if we bought a 2006.
We are also looking at the Audi A3 hatchback. Its more fun to drive, better gas mileage, but to stay around $30,000 we'd have to limit our options to turbo, automatic and sunroof. The '05 S40 has more features for the same price, but I'm just not sure $30,000 is the right price.
#429 of 698 How much off for a "left over 2005" S40?

I'm not sure if this question is too broad, but is there a consensus on how much off one should expect to pay for a new, 2005 car, purchased in 2006? I don't expect an exact dollar amount, but wonder how the depreciated value of a newly purchased, last year (2005) car should be calclated. Any thoughts on this?

I've talked my local dealer down to 18,150 before taxes on a 2005 s40 2.4i with nearly no options other than my dealer add ons. The car has 8 miles on it. What do you guys think?

I'm so excited. I just bought a brand new 2006 Volvo 2.4i and I got a great deal on it.
I got the car for $20k and after tax and fees, it still came out to less than $22k.

I didn't get any options. Just the basic S40 2.4i. It is a black on black manual S40. The MSRP price for the car was $24,735.00 and the invoice for that car was $23,578.00. I bought the car from Royal Volvo in San Francisco. The car was brand new with only 29mi on it with no problems whatsoever. I don't know how the dealer was able to offer me the car for only $20k, but it is an insane deal. No other dealers could even come close to that price.

Saw some killer deals here in South Florida last year for a 240 with an auto tranny for $20.000. The wife hated the high head rests and ended up with a Mazda3, which has the exact same body underneath. I preferred the Volvo, but those darn head rests were the deal breaker. Don't get me wrong, the 3 is a fun car to drive, but I liked the looks of the Volvo much better. Maybe when it's my turn in 2008, I'll relook at the 240 again.

I'm getting $3800 to $4000 off msrp on various quotes I've received for a couple of different s40s. And these are just the first offers. I haven't even had the opportunity to counter the offers yet so I know I can get a better price. I notice there is dealer cash on other models but not on the s40. They must be using this dealer cash to move the s40s as well, it's just that we are privy to that.
Anyone else getting great deals on the S40s?? I'm in the NoVA area. Thanks.
