I'm getting it for $100 over invoice - the $2k rebate. Seems good to me.
#592 of 607 Just Bought New Tahoe July 2011
Jul 28, 2011 (9:38 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 ($38,500, plus tax, title, lic.) Don’t pay sticker, don’t even pay invoice! You can do it! Be persistent!
#593 of 607 Dealers with same price?! No haggling?
Dec 30, 2011 (9:28 pm)
I've been to 3 separate dealerships in my area (MD/VA), and have been quoted 53K out the door on a 2012 Tahoe LT, with sunroof package and DVD/Nav.
The place in VA wouldn't negotiate at all and I ended up walking out over 2,500$. 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.

There's only about a 10% markup so 7K off sticker is a bit much.

I wish vehicles were still that reasonably priced... I live in San Antonio. My wife and I just got a 2011 LTZ Tahoe 4x4. Sticker was $61,789.00 We spoke with the sales manager (skip the sales people) bottom dollar plus multiple rebates because it was year end, and we settled on $52,550.00 I'm sure that by now you have purchased a tahoe but I thought I'd throw this out there...

I didn't think 7K off the sticker was that bad considering the True Car price was around 48K for a 55K truck. My local dealership had a couple for 48K, but they were white/cream with light interiors. Not my cup of tea.
I'm just surprised that the dealers have this "Internet price", and they won't budge an inch from it. I'm tempted to do my research on the Internet, then walk in off the street, pretending I have no idea what this mysterious price is.

#598 of 607 2012 Black Granite Metallic Paint - Scratches-Car Washes
Jan 13, 2013 (7:27 pm)
I have a Black Granite Metallic Paint 2012 Chevy Tahoe. The paint looked wonderful when I first bought it. Now it scratches VERY easily in car washes. The scratches can go past the black paint to hit white layer underneath or you can see how the brushes rubbed againt the paint and has brush mark damage.
I've gone to different car washes, so it's not the car wash, it's the defective paint. Is anyone else having this problem?
P.S. I've had a black Honda Civic and a black Chevy Blazer in my past. I have never had these problems with paint.
Advice? (Besides worthless touch-less car washes?)

I'd avoid mentioning car washes when showing this to the dealer. Most modern drive-thru car washes today use soft chamois-type strips and don't scratch unless you really have a ton of dirt/mud on your truck.
