#103 of 212 Excellent experience buying 07 S60
Nov 25, 2007 (1:54 am)
Just got back from Pat Patterson Volvo in Memphis. They had over a dozen 2007 S60s still on the lot. Bought my new 2.5T with climate, convenience, premium, etc. packages for $27,249 plus tax and license, so $29K all together. MSRP was $37K and the invoice (with the x-plan price on it, so I have no reason to think it was bogus) was $34K. I was thrilled with the deal, and the service.

Did you ever get a response on this question? I'm in a similar situation and wnated to see if you got any advice and what you ended up doing about purchasing the 2007 S60.

Never got a response. As a matter of fact, took the dealer that I was trying to get prices from 3 days before they returned my call! Guess that they really didn't want the business. They called as I was sitting in another dealership getting a great deal!

Too bad, at least you got a good deal though. Care to share the details about your deal. I actually started looking at a 2008 S40, but then read some pretty bad reviews on it. Oh well
#107 of 212 Extended warranty
Dec 24, 2007 (10:05 am)
There are still S60 2007s (not demos) in my area. Edmund's TMV for the basic S60 is $25,757. How much should I expect to pay for an extended warranty? Also I know there is a $4500. cash back to dealer ending on Jan. 8. Do you think there will be more incentives after Jan. 8, or will this one be extended? Any advice appreciated.

Any thoughts/help/ideas/pearls of wisdom?

$3300 spread.. hmmmmm
That makes it pretty even... If anything would tip me one way or the other, it would be the full 4-year warranty on the new one.. I would guess that the warranty clock has already started on the demo..

yup, tough spread. I think if either of them would move their nubmer a bit, then it would make it an easy choice. I'm also struggling with the warranty issue. I will most likely put about 22k miles on in per year.
Do you think I have more negotiating room with the 2007 loaner or the 2008 new? Have you seen better prices/deals than this?

Well.. if you drive that much, then it isn't the time, it's the mileage... And, the mileage on the demo will only put you out of warranty about 4 months sooner...
Assuming you are keeping the car for 3-4 years, the higher mileage will keep the re-sale price difference to a minimum..
Given all that, I'd have to go with the demo..
I don't follow the Volvos enough to tell you if those are good quotes.. I'm only looking in relative terms to each other.. As a general rule, demos usually aren't that great of a deal... and, they are harder to peg, because knowing what sort of incentives, dealer allowances, etc., on a demo are harder to find out about..
But, the delta between the two looks better than on most demo/new car comparisons that I've seen... On any new car deal, you'll eventually get to a number that no dealer will go below... On a demo, you may run into a deal where they want to get rid of it, and may be willing to take a loser deal on it.. Of course, you'll have to figure that out during negotiations..
Does Volvo have a CPO program? If so, that could be a negotiating point on the demo.. A nice extended warranty from Volvo would push me over the top.. Especially with your mileage needs, that would come in handy..

Hi there. Just checking to make sure that I got a good price- I feel good about it but wondering what others think.
