Thx for the reply Car_Man. I talked to one of the Saab dealers in my area (NY/NJ metro). He gave me the employee pricing for the 9-7x at $28,255 which is about $9k off the MSRP. Of course, financing rate is 5.19%. Do you think I can do any better with both the finance rate and price? I think I'm looking for a STEAL and this just doesn't seem like one to me.
I currently have an '06 9-7x whose lease expires next month. Buy out is $27k (ridiculous). Do you know if GM negotiates the buy out price??? If I could get a heck of deal there, I'll just keep my '06....then again, I'd probably want it for less than $20k!

The least expensive 2008 9-7X has an M.S.R.P. of $41,145.00... (4.2i V-6 ,no options)Your offered price of $28,255.00 is almost $13,000.00 off list price!!!!!! So maybe the "STEAL" you are looking for is best achieved by going into your local Saab dealer with a ski mask and a sawed off shotgun.

You're very welcome, Amy. Employee Pricing (including the deduction of all available cash incentives) is a very good deal...and it's probably as good as it is going to get on the 9-7X right now. You never mentioned how long a loan you want, but 5.19% is an outstanding interest rate for a conventional loan through an independent bank.
Your leased 9-7X certainly is not worth its official purchase option price. It is difficult to say whether GMAC will be willing to work with you on its end of term purchase price. The only way to find out for certain is to give them a call. Sometimes lessees who have no luck with their initial contact at a bank are able to get better results by working their way up the ladder to a manager. Give it a shot, you don't have anything to lose by asking.
