#66 of 103 Any Good Deals Recently?
Mar 22, 2004 (2:23 pm)
I'm curious as to whether or not anyone out there has recently purchased a new 2003 CX AWD and,if so, what kind of deal was had? Also, has anyone in Northern California purchased a new Ultra yet? If so, where did you get it, what kind of price did you pay, and what do you think about the extra power, improved ride, amenities, et. al.? I'd just like to know. Thanks.

I'm buying this one. Is anybody out there got a good deal on it? It gets pricey ~$32000-$35000 there . Definitely feel RDV shouldn't be over $29000, quality, performance, depreciation etc are poor.
Anyway what is a good price to pay for CXL AWD with 3.6L?
Thank you all..

I am very interested in the RDV CXL AWD. I rented one on vacation for a week and fell in love! The dealer has a demo with an MSRP of $35K+ for sale for $26K+. I know the demo price is less current rebates but I am weighing my options for later in the summer to take advantage of summer deals and maybe PGA promotions. I am also considering the Toyota Highlander but I know the discounts are not as generous and the car is not as roomy. What do you RDV owners think...any advice?

Depending upon the mileage and the options (e.g. third row seating, captains chairs, leather, etc.), $26,000 sounds like a good price. Tell the dealer that your looking at the Highlander, Pilot, et. al. and make a firm $24,000 offer for the RDV. If the dealer sticks to $26,000 at least get an extended warranty included for no extra charge. Good luck.

We purchased a 2004 CXL Plus w\ 3.6L engine last Tuesday. MSRP was $38,675, includ. leather, sunroof, X-M satel., captain's chairs, rear audio, steering wheel audio controls, etc. Paid $35,142 (invoice) minus a $5,000 rebate, or $30,142. After taking off $3,250 in GM card points, paid $26,892. Dealer is a friend, but I'm guessing most can get close to invoice. IMO, the bigger engine is well worth the added cost.
#73 of 103 2004 CXL

Just purchased a 2004 Rendezvous CXL with:
6 Disk Changer
3rd Row seat
MSRP was $34365 (an older build, so $200 less than current MSRP for newer builds)
Negotiated price before rebates: $30,961
Net price: $24,961
I was not happy with the State of California charging sales tax on the $30,961 before rebate price instead of the $24961 after rebate price.
This was an impulse buy... let me know if any of you out there got a better deal.

Looks like you got a good deal, getting $10K off.
I only got 6600 off MSRP, but the rebates were only $2000 in 2002. Still, you paid $3600 less for a newer model year.

We are really happy with the car. The decision to get the 2004 instead of the 2005 model was difficult because GM finally added 17" wheels and a passenger side occupant detection system to the airbags standard in the 2005 CXL. The 2005 also has a lower MSRP than the 2004 by a few hundred dollars. But, the 2004 had a $6000 rebate instead of $3000 for the $2005, so that was the clincher
