#733 of 742 ML350 MSRP $59,370
Jul 12, 2013 (4:52 am)
FYI: Paid $53,370 plus $500 doc (plus Denver state/local taxes) out-the-door. Invoice was $55,279. I'm a regular citizen and didn't use any "programs" (e.g. True Car, USAA, VPP, COSTCO, CUDL, etc.) that I was aware of.

Which Denver area dealership did you go to for your ML? Thanks and congrats.

Hi, all. First post here but used this forum extensively in researching whether to buy or lease a 2013 ML 350. Note that I bought this model at a 2nd dealer after I thought I was being jacked around with MF levels at the first dealer I looked at leasing from. See below and hope this helps.
MSRP: $53,245 (added options of premium 1, trailer hitch, Keyless Go and Pre-wiring for rear entertainment)
Sales price: $47,645
Drive-out post-TTL: $50,924
Location: Houston, TX
Sales discount of $5600 was 10.5% off MSRP. Rather than do dealer finance (which I was told was in range of +/- 3%), I financed $44,900 of purchase price through Bank of America at 1.99% for 60 months (I have mid-700s credit score). Paid $6,024 down to get to $44,900 financed amount...monthly loan payment is $786.80. As a side note, to finance $45K or above would have increased my interest rate to 2.34%
Had a bad experience at another dealer trying to lease an ML...dealer gave me $5500 discount off MSRP on any 2013 model, but jacked the finance charge up to .00216 even though I am top tier credit. They claimed that it was their dealership finance policy to charge a premium on top of the buy rate amount. So I went to a 2nd dealer who offered to beat the 1st dealer by giving additional $100 discount on top of the $5500, without any hassle. I probably could have gotten the price down a bit more since the car was on the 2nd dealer's lot for almost 2 months, but I'm happy with the deal as is.

2014 Mercedes-Benz ML350
Premium 1 Package, KEYLESS-GO, Pre-Wiring for Rear Seat Entertainment, 3.5L V6, RWD, automatic, 6 miles, Black, stock # EA301844, new... view details Price $53,455
Dealer is saying max discoutn they do is 6 but since it's a new model and not many on the lot, I might not get the full 6%.
What is a good d/c percentage of this car? Those Mercedes Lover.. Please let me know.

Look elsewhere. I ordered a ml350 Bluetec to my specification last month. I got 10% off plus the "mandatory" dealer fee of 499. Should receive my car late this month. Also if you read previous posts many have received 8% or more.

fbmok isn't the sales tax in SF around 8% so with other fees your MSRP is around $63k/$64 and he is offering it you for $55 out the door. Seems like a very good deal.
#741 of 742 Special Ordering a new ML 350

Anyone with experience on special ordering a new ML350 and what kind of deal you can get with the dealers? True Car says discount is averaging about 5-6% off MSRP.
#742 of 742 2014 ML350W4 with MSRP $64K
Nov 12, 2013 (12:08 pm)
We finally purchased my first ML350 over the weekend in SF Bay Area.
- 2014 ML350W4 with MSRP $64K.
- Paid $55K+ TTL.
- Total out of door is little over $60K.
Negotiation with this dealership was reasonably smooth. Initially, they offered just $500 off MSRP. After couple rounds of negotiations, finally.. got it $9k off MSRP. We are happy with the car and the price. They quoted us for ELW 7/75K for $3600 and the 5 year pre-paid maintenance for $2400. They weren't willing to discount those, so we didn't take those. Plan to shop for ELW with 7/75k at other dealers.
