I posted the price I paid for comparison purposes. The asking price was 25,988. First sale price offered was 22,900. I countered with 22,000. The sales manager responded with 22,200. I said I'd buy today for 22,000 and they sold me the car. I was also looking at a leftover new 2006 CXL V8 for 26500. I test drove the V6 and the V8. While the V8 has the extra power, the V6 has plenty of power for me. My last car was a diesel Mercedes so the Buick accelerates like a Corvette from my perspective. Plus the 07 has the longer powertrain warranty. I like the car so far.
#21 of 63 Using GM Card Rebate & GM Employee Discount
Apr 19, 2007 (3:49 pm)
I'm thinking about buying a Lucerne. Last time I bought a GM, which was over 4 years ago, I was able to get a GM Employee Discount, plus use over $2K in GM Card rebates. However, from what I hear, I can no longer combine GM Card rebates with the GM Employee Discount (it was sweet while it lasted).
Since I now again have over $2000 in GM Card rebate points, I'm debating haggling, without the GM Employee Discount, so that I can use my GM Card rebate. My question is, how much is the Lucerne discounted from sticker price with the GM Discount? If I can haggle and buy it for close to the GM Employee price, then I'll be able to still use my GM Master Card rebate.

Stop in at a dealer and ask about using your employee discount and the GM card credits. Or call the GM card number on the back of the card. Their website might even address that question.

I had the exact same problem. The dealer said I could use the GM employee discount and the GM Card points only if I had some sort of special GM card .. I forget right now what the name was. Anyway, I almost walked when they told me that. To keep us from leaving the salesperson "sweetened" the deal enough to make us sit down again. I used the GM points in lieu of the GMED.

#26 of 63 2006 Buy versus 2007 Lease
May 14, 2007 (1:25 pm)
I am looking at 2 different Lucerne CXS models, and was wondering if anyone might have some insight they could help me with. First off, I'm debating purchasing a 2006 model with premium paint, htd washer fluid/remote start/parking assist, htd & cooled seats 6-disc cd changer and 18" chrome plated alum wheels that stickers at $38,130, or of leasing a 2007 similarly equiped except it also has a pwr sunroof that stickers at $40,075. I'm looking at a 39 month lease with 20K miles/yr. I may qualify for some or all of the following: loyal Buick owner ($750), cash allowance ($2000/'06), conquest cash ($500 - we also have a foreign car) and SmartBuy trade-in cash allowance on purchase (for the '06 model). Since I need a high mileage lease, maybe with all the incentives for the '06, it might be less to purchase. What do you think, or what calculations should I make to come up with a good comparison estimate? Thanks for your help! (I'll also post this under leasing questions.)

If the 06 is new, you should be able to get it for about $31k. I'd offer $30k and see what he says.
I have the same car and I wish I did not have the sunroof. It takes away headroom.

I am not sure this will help you, but I might as well share it.
I don't know how this compares to the CXS, but I just bought a new 2006 CX with the following options:
Driver's Confidence Pkg
Rear-obstacle-detection system, remote engine start, alarm
Comfort and Convenience Pkg
Auto Dimming OSRV Drv Mirror
Auto Dimming Inside Rear View Mirror
Illuminated mirror visors
Universal home remote
Rainsense intermittent wipers
6 way power passenger seat
6 passenger 40/20/20 split front seating
Ext - Dark Garnet metallic
Int - Cashmere
My price out the door was $23,500.
I would appreciate if anyone has suggestions for seat covers that will protect from spills from young kids.
Also, any comments on whether I should get the extended warranty.
I bought an extended warranty on my Aztek 3 years ago because of problems with the A/C that seemed to happen after 3 years.

I forgot to mention, GM increased their rebates on 6/25.
The rebate for a new 2006 Lucerne was $4,000.
It seemed that retail delivery had to be by 6/27 but that seemed like an awful short time fuse.
In addition to that rebate, I used the $750 Buick owner rebate.
