#292 of 339 std LR3 lease terms - negotiable?
Dec 21, 2007 (11:24 am)
I contacted the local dealer for a price on a lease for a LR3. They gave me the "standard" offer now, which is on a 2008 LR3 SE, $4000 down, $599 plus tax a month, 36 months and 10,500 miles per year.
I assuming they are going off the MSRP of this truck? Are all of these terms negotiable, or are they set by the Land Rover Finance group? I'm fine with the lease length and miles, but would certainly like to get into the lease with as little money out of pocket, or bring down the monthly payment a little.

#294 of 339 LR3 HSE Fully Loaded
Feb 20, 2008 (5:58 pm)
I'm interested in an 2008 LR3 HSE fully loaded. The dealership is quoting me $54,979 on a $58,750 MSRP.
Is this a good deal?
#295 of 339 Buying a Service Loaner

Is $9k off MSRP a good deal for a service loaner? I live in Mass, looking at an 08' HSE w/Lux Pkg/Sirius w/4k miles. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

2 of the local dealers here were offering loaners for $10K off MSRP, but that was at the end of last year, so they might have up'd it a little bit to try and get rid of them by EOY. FWIW....
#297 of 339 Do Dealers Negotiate?
Feb 26, 2008 (12:09 pm)
The Atlanta Dealerships claim that the "Landrover Way" is not to negotiate and they claim that everyone pays MSRP. In reading some of the posts here, its unclear to me. I would like to buy a brand new 08 LR3. My company participates in the X-Plan. I spoke with a local dealer and they said that X-plan will typically bring the price down to between $1,400 and $1,800 off of MSRP depending on the X-Plan type- A, Z, or X. That doesn’t seem like a tremendous amount to me and my first thought was well if I could negotiate the price, I could probably do better. My questions are – 1) Do dealers negotiate on price for new vehicles? 2) If so, is the X-Plan really a benefit or just smoke and mirrors? Thanks.

I don't think you are likely to see much flexibility on price unless you are at model year end and they are clearing out demonstrators or less desireable vehicles. We have seen some additional promotions to take off $1,500 or so if you buy from available dealer inventory. If you are like me and you want a specific option package and color that aren't sitting on the lot, get out your checkbook.
I purchased two LR vehicles from the United Auto Group dealerships here in the Phoenix area. UAG throws in a small customer loyalty bonus that ranges from $500 to $1,000, and I think I got them to throw in the load area mat on my last LR3, which is a few bucks more. Otherwise, I don't try to drive a hard bargain as I want dealer support if I have a problem. So far so good.
I think the other impediment to price shopping is that you usually can't play off one dealer against another unless you're willing to go outside your area. UAG owns both LR dealerships in Phoenix, and I'm not going to go out of town to save a few bucks.
#299 of 339 LR3 HSE Fully Loaded

After much research, i finally pulled the trigger on a 2008 LR3 HSE fully loaded. My final purchase was $54,979 on a $58,750 MSRP. I did all the negotiating via email or on the phone. I got a little nervous towards the end because their was only one HSE with the heavy duty package left in Southern CA. Every dealership was trying to get me into a SE. The buying experience at LR Mission Viejo was great! I'm enjoying the LR3 around town, but I ready to get it dirty up in Mammoth next weekend!
#300 of 339 08 LR3 HSE Lease
Apr 11, 2008 (10:12 am)
I'm in Northern Virginia and I'm looking to lease an HSE w/ the Lux package. Anyone know what the money factor / residuals are looking like? I'm looking at doing a 12k/yr for 24 to 36 months.
If I can get them to take $55k or $2k off would I be getting a great deal or just so-so?
Any idea what dealer incentives they have going on? Edmunds.com doesn't show any but both dealers have mentioned that there is some "lease cash" out there.
I'm waiting on initial lease quotes from two dealers. No one is being terribly responsive.
