Awful deal. If you're talking T5 anyway. Are you leasing, loan, cash? If lease, what are miles? I'll post about my deal which I'm ok with in a second on a new post.
#186 of 212 2012 T5 Price
Jun 10, 2012 (10:40 am)
I got a 2012 T5 black on black with premium, climate, communicator, and chrome pipes for $32,775. Leased with $2,000 down (taxes and fees up front) at $350 / mth, 36mths. 10,000 miles a year. This includes conquest and the summer lease special. I think I did ok--what do you guys think? Really enjoying the car but still in honeymoon phase. Big road trip coming so we'll see if the seats are as good as everyone says.

Sale price should have been at least $1K less: ~ $33,500 invoice - $1K conquest - ~$700 two months free = $320/month. Does your $2K down include acquisition fee or it was rolled into the lease? Also, it would be nice to know what kind of black you got - there is $550 difference in MSRP. It is very possible to get 2012 S60 for $500-$1,000 under invoice since there are plenty of them and 2013's are coming.

The $2k included acquisition fee--and I got the $550 fancy black metallic. So I did get in under invoice in the price range you suggested, but I sort of agree that I could have done a bit better, as you say $320. Are you enjoying yours?

Just purchased a demo 2012 S60 T5 FWD for OTD price of $29,500. This is overseas through the military buying program. It is cosmic white with beachwood/beige interior and urban decor inlays. Has premium, technology, and climate package and 1500 miles. First Volvo purchase and I felt like it was a good deal but still somewhat uncertain. What do you think?

Have considered joining the Volvo Club of America. If you are a card carrying member you can receive the employees family discount, there are details on the website. It might be worth the $45 to join if you know you want a Volvo.

Took my new 2012 S60 T5 on a 2,000 mile trip on interstates and winding country roads, through wind, rain, and heat. I thought folks were blowing smoke when they said the seats were comfy, but unlike my previous German and Asian cars, my back and bottom never hurt one bit even after eight hours. I will say the touted climate package air filter did not filter out skunk, cow, or exhaust smells--I was hoping it would. This is a nice car that borders comfortable long-distance touring and sporty / spirited driving. I know most BMW fans will think I'm nuts, but I'd rather have the S60 than a 3 (and most definitely over the other overpriced or tired options, talking Merc and Infinity respectively). So, I just picked a fight I think.

Are there any established sales/residuals/financing rates/incentives on the 2012 S60s? Has anyone had experience ordering one? I'm considering getting one of those instead of a 2012, but can't seem to find any numbers or info on them.
Thanks for any info you may have.

Hi - I'm looking at a 10,000 mile lease on a 2012 S60 with premium package (leather and moonroof) in New Jersey. There is an advertised special of 3,490 down (excludes tax and title) and $289 per month. Any advice on how much better I can do would be much appreciated!

Does anyone have any idea what kind of discount you get when you are a member of Volvo Club of America? We have an S40 and XC90, and are thinking about trading in the 40 for a 60. Don't know if the discount is more than you could get through negotiations. Any help is appreciated!
We are in Lexington, KY. Anyone know if there is a local chapter? Thanks.
