Volvo S40, Sedan

Ok, I went to a dealer today and test drive an 07 S40. The car is good given it's the entry level of Volvo sedan. But I was hoping to get a good deal on this. However, the dealer wanted to rip me off and thought I was a dumb in car purchase.

body styling package
I asked for $24000 for the car. But the dealer won't go below $26500. Did I ask for too much for the car? Anybody recently purchased a 07 s40?

Saw a new '08 model today and really liked the tweaks they did to the front and rear facias. Bet the price has actually gone up though. Doubt that one could buy a base auto 2.4 for $21,000. Maybe a leftover '07 maybe.

I snoozed on the hot deal of $21,400 as I had to travel out of the country. When I returned the incentives were no longer available. The best I have gotten now for the same specs (2008, 2.5i, automatic, metallic silver) is $23,400.
I can get a 2007, same specs for approx $22,000.

The wife and I are looking at the following car and trying to determine what the fair market price is for the next 45 to 60 days, if this is possible:
MSRP is 32980 (I believe)
I have enjoyed reading the posts on edmunds and I am hoping you folks can help me.
#667 of 698 price for used '07 S40 2.4i
Nov 15, 2007 (2:53 pm)
I have found a used '07 S40 2.4i at a local dealer. It has 8500 miles on it, auto transmission, sunroof, silver exterior, black cloth interior. It is a former rental. According to carfax, no problems. It's been on the dealer lot for about two months. The asking price is $19,995. This seems like an excellent price to me based on what I've seen at other lots and at carmax (maybe too good???), perhaps because it's been on the lot for two months and it's a former rental. (I don't have a problem with buying a former rental.) Thoughts? Is this as a good a deal as I think? Would it be reasonable of me to offer $17,000? Or would they consider that too low to even bother with me, considering the price is already rather low? (I'm hoping to get it for $18000.)
Thank you for any insights you care to share!

#669 of 698 2007 S40 2.4i
Dec 22, 2007 (10:37 am)
For the last month or so I've been out bottom fishing for a 2007 S40 2.4i hoping to get a good deal. I wanted the leather, premium package and auto transmission. Finally made a deal last night, but looking over this forum, I'm feeling a little iffy on whether I got a good deal.
Here are the specs:
2007 2.4i w/ auto/geartronic trans
Ice White (non-prem) paint
Part of the deal was free maintenance for 30,000 miles (this includes oil chages, alignments, etc). Supposedly this incentive was worth $822. I'm kicking myself for not having made them throw in free tint as well.
Out the door price (TTL, everything) was $25,943.
Opinions on this deal?

That seems like a pretty good deal but it's difficult to tell if you include TTL because every state is different in that regard. Could you please provide the price before TTL for comparison?
Also, did you get the sense that dealers were more willing than usual to make a deal to move some cars? The Volvo manufacturer-to-customer rebate isn't that high right now but I'm wondering if dealers have some secret Volvo cash to play with because sales reportedly are down.

Price before TTL, dealer fees, etc, was $23,820. Really didn't sense a whole lot of motivation to move the '07's which is surprising given that it's the end of the year. I went to a few other dealers prior to this one & they refused to do anything more than knock $2500 off invoice. I got about $3700 below invoice...
Thanks in advance for your input.
#672 of 698 2006 S40 purchased used
Jan 04, 2008 (12:51 pm)
I just picked up a 2006 S40 for my daughter, silver (metallic paint), automatic and leather with 30000 miles on it for $17500+++
There were four in town with about the same miles and specs, ie no roof, no premium etc. Two dealers would not take this deal and two would. We took the silver one. Asking prices ranged from $19000 to $20000. Nice car. Not an especially good deal, but fair, considering the car has over two years factory warrantee left and is absolutely spotless. I spent far too much time over the past month shopping for it. Almost went with a Saab 93, but glad I went for this one instead. I drove a few pretty loose 2-year old Saabs, but all of the Volvos were solid and drove about the same.
