vchad, i find your estimating $20k discount off 09 GLs to be quite unbelievable. if it can be acomplished, i would fly in to where ever the dealership is for that deal. now i'm not calling you a lier or anything like that, it's just sounds very fantasy like to me of getting $20k off on $70k benz which works out to be like almost 30%off..are 09 GLs not selling to that extent...?

kennyyu, I think you should read the forums more often, and you'll see what kind of deals mercedes is doing righ tnow. Check out the E-class forums, i just bought my 2009 E-320 bluetec for 20,300 off sticker. This is all made possible by REBATES from mb and fleet rebate.
now my jeep was totalled this week, so now i'm in the market again, for another car.
MB has a 10k rebate, on the GL- series, so right off the bat, you should get 10k off at a minimum. Now, there is also a 2k rebate if you can qualify for Fleet discount, there is a long list of companies that do. THEN if you check ebay, various dealers are posting 8k off msrp, so I took it to my local dealer, asked them to match it, they intially said 4k off msrp, but they have 5 GL's sitting on the lot. They went up to 6.5, i said no thanks.... Finally they agreed to 8k off msrp, plus all my qualifying rebates. I haven't finalized the deal yet, so hence I didn't post my sale or dealer name yet.
There is no need for you to fly somewhere, know your facts on rebate, approach as many dealers in your area, some will balk and laugh at you, but jokes on them, they wont be getting a check from me.

vchad, first of all let me thank you for explainig in detail of rebates and discounts and how they add up to 20k...it just that your the first one i heard saying anything about 10k rebate on 09 GLs and to imagine dealership passing all of it to customers on top of 8k dicount is just too good to be true..oh yeah and that fleet rebate of extra 2k thrown in too..but if its true then well i guess before this Christmas i will have a shining silver 09 GL parked in my garage thanks to you..

Hey guys, yeah I know it seems too good to be true, but trust me, they want to move the GL's.
My wife and I are debating on gong with a GL320 bluetec or a Toyota Land Cruiser. We had a cruiser before our jeep, loved it, never gave me a problem, I curse myself everyday for trading it in.
Once I make a decision, and the deal has gone through, ill be glad to share that information with you. The only thing that concerns me is, the 2010 they said has been "updated" and I cant seem to findout what upgrades were made.

Kennyyu, I dont know how long these rebates will stick around, but most dealers will "punch in" these vechicles, to lock in those rebates. So the sooner you act, the better. Honestly, in your local state, email every dealer you got, with that offter saying you'll buy within 24hours. once they know your serious, they'll make do with little profit....ESP end of the month.(thats what I did for my e-class)
now....I looked at GL's last summer too....same story as this summer. Most people got anywhere from 15-20k off sticker on 08's sitting there, while 09's were coming in. So its a seasonal trend.
#321 of 716 10k rebate confirmed

vchad, you are on the mark my friend. just got an e-mail from local dealer confirming the 10k rebate on 09GLs (although he said GL450). since you are so knowledgable and up to date on these thing, do you mind telling me exactly how one gets the fleet rebate in detail please?

thats awesome, glad they acklowedged it. But he's not being totally truthful, ALL the GL models have rebate, id personally go for the bluetec, the mileage is great, for such a big car.
There are two ways to get the Fleet discount. one is to go to mercedes fleet website and seeing if your company is on the list of fleet incentives. Second way well....a small loophole, which I dont feel comfortable sharing on public forum. post your email, and i'll share information. Its not illegal by anymeans, I just dont want everyone to take advantage of it.
