#456 of 698 2006 Volvo S40 2.4i Purchase
Jun 09, 2006 (6:39 pm)
Just wanted to share my great purchasing experience and deal made at Fremont Volvo (SF Bay Area).
We just purchased a new '06 S40 2.4i, flint gray, automatic, select package, sport package, and leather seats for $24K (MSRP $30K). We had two dealers offer us $6K off MSRP, but this dealership made the entire deal over the internet/phone AND gave me a great deal on my trade. Also, their internet sales person was very professional and a true pleasure to deal with.
Thanks to everyone for the information being shared here.

#460 of 698 Urgent Lease Question....Need some help
Jun 10, 2006 (7:51 pm)
Ok...I have spoken with the Volvo dealer and gotten some numbers. I would very much appreciate it if I could have some feedback.
I am turning in a 2003 Saturn L200 and hope to get roughly $8000 dollars. The buyout is 10,000 so this leaves me 2000 dollars in the negative. The dealer told me Volvo switched the incentive this week and that it is no longer 4,000 dollars through a private bank but only 3,000 dollars and through the volvo financial......
So I will be up only 1,000 dollars because of the trade in taking away from the incentive. I plan on putting another 1000 dollars down.....SO these are the numbers:
36-month lease. Market Value of car is 24,735. I will be given a 1000 dollar incentive and putting 1000 dollars down therefore the car will have a cap cost of 22735 roughly. The money factor given was .00091 and the Residual Factor was 53. The monthly payment offered is 363.00 dollars.
Can somebody please tell me if this a good deal, makes sense, or if I should be negotiating more. I am new at this lease game and have tried the calculations out. Some guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
PS...I am from NY and the sales tax is 8.75 if that also makes a difference...thanks again.

There was very little haggling.
We found that every dealer was offering a different Volvo incentive. One dealership was $4K off, then another at$5K off. We left the $5K dealership to discuss further and they called us the next morning and said the incentives just changed and now the car was $6K off (6/7/06). But, they wanted me to roll over $2K on my trade so we shopped the same price via email to the internet manager at another dealership. He responded quickly and made the deal without seeing the trade or us.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

I just bought my brand new 2006 s40 2.4i with a 5-speed manual tranny on Memorial Day. Got a great deal on it, $19,989, at Dick Dyer Mercedes-Benz/Volvo in Columbia, South Carolina. The salespeople were very friendly and so far, I've been very pleased with my purchase. When I was shopping around for the best price, my dad called up a dealership in Georgia where he had purchased 2 Volvos in the past and the best they could offer him was $22,000.
Since Memorial Day, my little Swede has made it through the daily commute and a 1,000 mile road trip with no problems!
