#306 of 685 SAAB- bought & the price went down the next day HELP
Jul 23, 2007 (7:49 am)
Looking for advice about my July 2007 new 9-5 SAAB Aero purchase. I purchased my car on a Monday at 5pm, knowing it would have a $3,000 rebate/price incentive from GM, along with an owner loyalty incentive. The NEXT day (Tuesday) rebates on the car increased to $4,000. Basically, the dealer has told me that the $1,000 loss is my tough luck. If it were just about any other purchase, I could visit with the customer service department and achieve resolution. Any advice about who, how, where to follow up? - anyone have this happen and successfully seen the price difference refunded? (this is my 5th new Saab... what ever happened to Saab taking care of their customers!?!)
#307 of 685 Buy a 2007 9-3 2.0T for $500 over invoice before incentives?
Jul 27, 2007 (2:21 pm)
I am considering buying a 2007 9-3 2.0T sedan. I am thinking of a 6-speed manual with the 17" premium package.
I would love to get feedback from recent buyers on whether the following deal looks do-able and if I've missed any major points or costs.
Given all the incentives floating around, my thought was to offer $500 over invoice before incentives or
17" PPackage $1.8K
Metallic Paint $500
Dealer Profit $500
for a total of $28.5K before tax
Minus rebates of $4K+$500+$500 = $5K
Gets to $23.5K. Add TT&L (So Cal) of ~10% = $2.35K
Gets me to $25-26K for the car out the door. Does this seem right?
#308 of 685 Couldn't wait for an 08
Aug 02, 2007 (5:09 am)
So I went to turn in my 04 9-3 Arc lease yesterday deadset on not getting anything until to 08's came out....
Until I saw the reduced prices on the 07's. With my owner loyalty bonus it was a price I couldn't refuse.
2007 Saab 9-3 black manual
16" premium package
cold weather package
Thanks to fitzmall.com no haggling, very simple, one price, $23189 for everything except tax/tags.
08 can wait all it really offers is different sheet metal anyway. I'll bide my time until the XWD's are discounted this way.
#309 of 685 2007 9-3 auto demo price
Aug 03, 2007 (12:50 pm)
how do you value a demo versus new?
I have been offered a demo with 1500 miles, auto, cold weather package (with 4k rebate and $500 mileage deduction) for a price of $23,900. Is this good? or should I wait into november december, I find it harder to find the car i want, or are the dealers playing the game?

I'm looking for a 9-3 2.0 with Anniversary Edition, Auto, Moonroof and cold weather package. Any thoughts on a good price? The sticker price is $31,920. Thanks in advance.
#314 of 685 Is this a good deal?
Sep 06, 2007 (9:51 pm)
I got an offer for 2007 9-3 60th anniversary $5000 discount. Is it a good deal? I was thinking about $6000 discount. Does anyone buy this car recently?

I'm also looking at a 2007 9-3 sedan. The dealer hinted they would start with a $5000 discount and we could negotiate from there. Sounds like I could do better than a $5000 discount but I don't know how much.
My problem... I have to convince my wife this is the car she likes. Negotiating with the dealer will be a piece of cake after that.
