Chevrolet Tahoe, SUV
#584 of 626 Got a GMC instead
Aug 27, 2010 (6:37 pm)
Similiar enough vehicle so thought I would post here also. Got me a SLT diamond white, MSRP 53290. Total OTD after TTL was 53,078. Plus I was fortunate enough to get a 1000 conquest off that price, opted for 0% financing. Had to go out of my state to get at that price though. Anything in my state was MSRP plus tax no negotiating, crazy is what I say. Not sure if I can say which dealers, so I will just say I had to go from Ohio to Mich to get the vehicle. Did all the negotiating and what not on the phone too.

I agree--shouldn't have to pay more than invoice+/- (and get all the incentives on top of that). You could really save some money buying a one-year-old for 60 cents on the dollar.
#586 of 626 Lease terms
Sep 24, 2010 (3:15 am)
in your opinion, is this a good deal?
"2011 Tahoe 4WD LT in Black Granite Metallic with Ebony interior. It includes Sun, Entertainment, Destination Package, and Luxury Package with an MSRP of $52,230. A 39 month lease based on 15,000 miles per year with $7,000 down would be $508/month. This includes all taxes, fees and DMV charges."

with the new incentives started 3/1, I'm looking to upgrade my 03 LT. It's amazing to me that in 03 I paid 38,500 + TTL for my almost loaded Tahoe. Now I'm looking at atleast 12-15k more for a 2011.

Don't know if the knowledgeable folks here will know; maybe you can point me in right direction.
When looking for quote on GM site, it asks if vehicle will be for personal or business use. Is there something about one or the other that would dictate what amount would be quoted?

If you are trying to get a lease quote, sometimes vehicles that are titled in a business name have higher finance rates..
I think the banks see businesses as more of a finance risk, than an individual.

Anyone have thoughts on why one dealer would send their invoice list over and cost and others wouldn't?

11 LTZ msrp 53930, sales price 49,284.79
side blind zone alert
I'm getting it for $100 over invoice - the $2k rebate. Seems good to me.
#592 of 626 Just Bought New Tahoe July 2011
Jul 28, 2011 (8:38 pm)
Just bought a 2011 Tahoe LT in Southern Cal, July 2011. Options were just the Regional Value Package, basically 20” polished wheels & chrome grille/door handles/mirror covers. Had test drove one with an MSRP of around $46,000 and hoped to end up (after the $3,000 GM rebate) at maybe $41,000 or $42,000 which is about invoice. I found a dealer online with an LT model and the RV package at $40,600 or what they said was $700 below invoice. I thought this was a great deal and was seriously considering it until I found a dealer discounting another $2,500! They even came down another $500 with some negotiation. I think I ended up about $3,000 below invoice and just wanted everyone to know it was possible!
I searched Auto Trader, talked to local dealers and looked at ads in the newspaper and “newspaper” ads that dealers have on their websites. I paid $42,000 out the door ($38,500, plus tax, title, lic.) Don’t pay sticker, don’t even pay invoice! You can do it! Be persistent!
#593 of 626 Dealers with same price?! No haggling?
Dec 30, 2011 (8:28 pm)
I've been to 3 separate dealerships in my area (MD/VA), and have been quoted 53K out the door on a 2012 Tahoe LT, with sunroof package and DVD/Nav.
The place in VA wouldn't negotiate at all and I ended up walking out over 2,500$. If they said let's meet in the middle, I would have made the deal. Another said 53K was their absolute best price and they ended all communication.
It seems that all three places have an "Internet price", from which they don't budge one inch. The sticker on all three trucks are around 55K, so I'm really asking for a cost of 48K with about 2,500 taxes and tags.
Is it realistic to ask for 48K on a 55K sticker or am I way off base here? My thinking is that not many people are buying large SUVs anymore, so dealers should be trying to make a sale.
