#170 of 339 Just Leased my First Land Rover
Nov 09, 2006 (1:27 pm)
I just leased a 2007 Land Rover LR3 HSE, Tonga/Alpaca from Land Rover Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The retail price was $72,794 with a $2,500.00 rebate for a total of $70,294 (canadian dollars) It is a 39 month lease with 75,000km allowance. The monthly lease payment is $1131.20 including all taxes. Dealer included rubber mats for all three rows and split the cost 50/50 for luggage rack crossbars. Residual value is set at $40,373.20 and APR is 4.9%
I will take delivery in 2 to 3 weeks. So far the service from the sales department has been excellent.
They provided an LR3 for a full day to allow me to test drive with my family.

I just paid a flat $36,000.00 for a new 2006 LR3 with V6, SE Premium Package, and Cold Weather Package. I am hoping this was a pretty good deal. I hate to part with too much $$$ for a car...

Wow! You did great. Mine originally retailed for $43,300.00 and I thought that the $7,300.00 discount I received was about as good as it got. How long have you had yours and how hard did you have to negotiate the price you got?

"...land rover was giving rebates of 6000 for v6 and 5000 for v8's."
And there is my issue. When I decided to buy a LR3, I looked all over the internet for any mention of any factory to dealer incentives. Every place I looked (Edmunds, KBB, ect) all said "No incentives at this time."
Yet I KNEW there had to be incentives out there because a number of dealerships were advertising $3,000.00 + under cost. Since dealerships are not in the business of losing money, I knew there had to be an unpublished incentive on these vehicles, but for the life of me I could not find ANY mention of it. I "googled" scores of internet pages and all I could find was "No incentives at this time."
This brings me to my point. Up until a couple of years ago, sites like "Edmunds" prided themselves on not just reporting published cash backs, but digging down and revealing all the unpublished/hidden cash backs, dealer hold backs, and factory to dealer incentives that we car buyers WERE NOT supposed to know about. Edmunds.com was truly and SOLELY on the side of the car buyer at that time.
Now it seems, sites like Edmunds.com have become nothing more than a means for car dealerships to get leads on customers. They all provide some basic info on retail/cost number, then prompt you at every click of your mouse to register your name and phone number so that you can receive "multiple internet pricing offers" which of course never arrive. Instead you start receiving telephone calls and e-mails from car local dealerships, trying to get you to come in without EVER providing the very "quote" these website(s) promised.
I think Edmunds, KBB, and other sites have gone completely to the "dark side" and are no longer acting in the best interests of the consumer.
