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.

#327 of 716 I Bought On Thursday
Aug 09, 2009 (9:12 am)
I bought a GL 320 BlueTEC with the following options:
Obisdan Black Metallic Paint
Rear Seat Entertainment
Illuminated Door Sills
MSRP was $69,345 and invoice $64,452. I negotiated mine down to $55,700. Don't know for sure if this is a great deal or not but it sure felt like it. Also, the dealer told me that if I came in to trade within two or three years, I'd get an awesome deal due to the $10K discount I just got. He said that I basically got the first year's depreciation built in to my pricing and that a trade up within three years would require very little cash (under $5K or so if I did it within two years). Now I know he's in the business of selling cars so I take that with a grain of salt. I have no intention of trading as I usually hold for seven plus years.
Also, as I was buying, I saw two customers walk in looking for a GL 320 but I got the last one at my dealership. Sounds like the $10K discount is driving people into the showroom.

Can you send details on the corporate fleet program? Been researching this over the past week and am confused on eligibility.
