From reading the board, i think that $4000 off MSRP isn't bad at all for a new 2007. That's about 13% off msrp. When i was shopping for '07 2.4i AT base, i was offerred 12% off MSRP. Seems like that's the going rate with these '07's.
Do you know if the $4000 off contains a discount for using Volvo financing? And was the $4000 off a result of mentioning pricing to the "other" dealer? You may be able to get a sweeter deal by presenting the numbers to the "other" dealer. Plus, if you bring them the numbers and they say "No way!" --you know you have the best deal at the first dealership.
Best of luck. Let us all know how you fair.

I'm looking at the same thing, and that seems like a good price. What does the Edmunds TMV show for your area? Seems like around here (NJ), they're going for around 500 below sticker.

Edmunds TMV is showing around $28,300 for a 07 S40 2.4i autmatic, select and climate packages. Carsdirect is about $27,500. So the quote I got ($25,500) was really good and other dealers can't match it. The problem is they gave me really low on my trade in (2004 Honda element). The lowest I checked online is around $14,000 trade in value. They gave me $12,000 which is insulting!!! Not sure if it is because a Japanese trading at a Volvo dealership?? If I take my car to a Honda dealership, may be I'll get something closer. That's why I am starting to consider a Acura TSX. Lordy, doing it all over again !!

We just got a black 2006 S40 T5 Auto with climate & bi-xenon headlamps and premium package with 7000 miles on it (demo) for $24,300 ($25,800 OTD) -- MSRP was $31,817, ended up paying about 76.5% of MSRP or ~$1 per mile off. I was originally looking at a 2.4 auto, no options (quoted $24,700 out the door -- $1100 less that what we ended up paying), but couldn't ignore the better engine, leather, sunroof, heated seats, etc. -- You may be able to find a demo vehicle mow if you don't mind a few miles on the car to start. Oh -- the warranty is still 4 years/50,000 miles, but the clock hasn't started yet -- still have 4 full years and ~43,000 miles -- be sure to ask about it if you look at a demo.

Thanks for your help! We went ahead and purchased the car after comparing prices with other out of state dealers. The big problem has been getting the car delivered to us via a transport company - we've been waiting over a week and still do not have the car! Needless to say, we're disappointed and ANGRY over this issue. Still hope we made the best deal on the car b/c the dealer certainly didn't come through with their choice in a transport company! Any advice on how to handle this delivery fiasco?

I got a quote yesterday of $25,800, close to what you got but I'd still like to do better than that. Another dealer presented some 0% finance options, so I will have to weigh my options and keep looking.

Alrighty, I almost gave up on the S40. Finally I got my S40 for $25,300 plus tax and fee today. The process went pretty smoothly. I belive it is a very good deal, $4,010 off MSRP for a 2007. Thanks everyone for their help!! I am one happy person with a car loan ??

Are you sure about that? I also bought a demo, but they specifically told me that the clock started when it went it to service, and the Volvo warranty booklet also states that. If what you say is true, that would be huge! Did you get it writing or any way of proving that the warranty started when you bought it? I'd love to know because that would give me A LOT of peace of mind!

Congratulations on the new wheels. Where are you located? Did you take advantage of the 0% financing Volvo is currently offering. It seems I can get the lower price (which includes $1,500 cash back) or the finance offer, but not both.

Thanks! I think my price is too low to get the 0%. Well, when I bought it on Saturday, they didn't even mention 0% was an option. Plus I didn't see it anywhere. Did I miss something?
