#178 of 211 Looking Suburbans or Yukon XL's
Jan 10, 2009 (11:11 am)
We have 3 small boys, a dog and seem to always have a bunch of gear on trips. We have never been SUV people, always foreign wagons. We rented a Suburban last summer on a trip and I love it. The gas mileage was better than expected, managing the right foot and the cylinder de activation on the highway makes a huge difference.
Now our lease on our volvo wagon is close to coming to an end. I am thinking Suburban/Yukon XL. What should we truly be paying? Is a 2009 better than a 2008? The 2009 do have the 6 speed, that has to help highway miles.
Any advice to a SUV rookie would be appreciated.

As your boys start to grow, you will love a Sub even more than you currently do.
#180 of 211 How far under Invoice can I go if I take the 0%?

Has anyone had success obtaining a purchase price under the Invoice if you took the 0% financing? I am getting numbers a little under Inv but most dealers hold to the premise that the cash and rebates cannot be combined. Thanks for your help.

I took the 0%/60 months last night on a new 09 suburban.
Price was about 2k below invoice, plus I received the $3,500 lease 2 buy cash rebate that GM is offering for GM and non-GM leasees. The 0% was in lieu of the $2,000 cash rebate (but not the $3,500) so this seemed fair.

Thanks for the info Did you lease or buy? Could you clarify the deal you received? I understand that you got the price down to 2K below invoice and the 0% financing. What is the $3500 for? That came off the price? I couldn’t find anything about “lease to buy” on the GM site.

I purchased the 09 suburban. Financed the full amount at 0% over 60 months. The negotiated price was 2K below invoice. On top of that, I received a $3500 rebate that GM is currently offering for current GM and non-GM leasees with leases expiring prior to september 2009. Not sure if this additional $3500 rebate is on the GM website, but if you call a dealer they will tell you it is available.

Thanks IMO ... The extra rebate was to help out existing leasees
Anyone else with a recent buying experience?

I am getting "supplier" quotes from my local dealer who wants to be aggressive but realizes that I am not going to pull the trigger until the 0% comes back.
I was bummed to see them discontinue the 0% on the suburban for May. They've kept it on virtually all the other models but I guess they sold enough Suburbans recently to pull back.
This still surprises me considering their recent posted Q1 loss, the published huge declinein April sales and the impending restructuring. I would think they would continue to try and bring buys for all models into the showroom no matter how well just to keep traffic up and units moving.
Case in point - Chrysler just annoucned another round of discounts ontop of already steep incentives after they heard from their dealers that the recent news is further keeping people from buying. You'd think GM would want to keep any momentum they have.
I am hoping the 0% comes back mid-month but if not, I'll wait however long until it does.
