#115 of 212 a new car or 2007 S60
Feb 15, 2008 (2:31 pm)
I am in the market for a new car. VW Passat turbo 6A and Volvo S40/S60 are on the list.
I also think about the 2007 S60 with 6000-10000 mile loan car at dealership. How much is a fair of good price to buy one? They are asking 28000. But given the depreciation amount on true cost sheet from edmunds it should be lower than 26000. Also the 2007 does not have those $4000 off from new 2008 models. I haven't discussed more with the dealer yet but I am thinking choosing one of those or even another brand. Of course a particular car and how the deal is are the bases make decision.

I paid $25,795 for my 2007 loaner with 6k miles on it. They said that it was already priced at rock bottom and they couldn't go any lower. I thought it was a good price so I bought it. MSPR was approx $35.5k

In Florida. It's FWD, not AWD.

I agree with you and no need to talk for another $500 up or down. 6k miles sounds very good and I had thought it can't be more than $26000. That's not including tax, right? It also depends on the options. The ones they listed are FWD and probably are loaded with most options except the navigation system which I think is not worth buying. Usually you drive at local and don't need that. If you go to a strange place a $200 GPS will do all the work, why pay $2000?
#120 of 212 Current deals on S60?
Mar 02, 2008 (7:07 pm)
Hi everyone, My lease on my current car is up next month and I am looking for a nice "sporty" sedan to replace it. I had read on here that there were some BIG deals being made on S60's. Is that still the case?
I will almost undoubtedly lease again. 15K miles per year, 3-4 years (max). There were some early comments about discounts on Volvo leases of $5,000 to 7,000 if I remember correctly. (Should have re-read the posts before posting this one!)
My local dealer has a car that I have not seen yet, but their web site shows an MSRP of $27,200 so I am assuming it is optioned close to what I am looking for.
Can anyone share with me what I might expect the capitalized cost of the car to be on a lease? (Hope I said that correctly - basically "what SHOULD a car like this approximately cost?")
I want something below $400 per month and I am willing to put up a couple of dollars (not much, since it is a lease) in order to make things work.
Any insights on what I can expect or should target are GREATLY appreciated!

#124 of 212 Volvo Sales Down Over 50%
Oct 25, 2008 (3:04 am)
Was surprised to read in an article about the overall economy that Volvo's sales are down over 50% currently. Since the sales numbers were never all that great to begin with, a 50% drop is amazingly bad. Future resale may be headed towards Saab/ Mitsubishi/Suzuki territory. With Toyota offering zero percent interest rates on Camry and most of its models, it is very difficult to justify buying a Volvo.
Certainly it is a time to slowly and carefully consider your automotive options and decisions.
