#497 of 716 2010 GL 450
Jun 30, 2010 (5:03 am)
Any insight re: incentives or rebates for July 2010? Looking to purchase a 2010 GL 450. Dealers is offering a good price ($1,000 below invoice) + mercedes will make my last 3 lease payments on my R350 (at mileage limit now). Not sure whether to pull the trigger now or wait to see if they put any incentives/rebates in place for 2010's in July. Also, does Mercedes typically offer the lease pull ahead program? Thanks!

The fleet mgr we're working with says the residuals will not be any better for the 2011. This doesn't make sense to me, though I know the car is not changing all that much.
Can you shed some insight on this?

If fleet manager told you that Residuals for GL 2011 will not better than 2010, than I suggest to look for another person to deal with...What State are you in?

I'm in California. She finally relented and said the residuals would be higher. She even had them - 56% for the 2011 compared to the 51% for the 2010 (at least in June). I'm hoping Tarry leasecompare.com will list his rates on mbworld soon.
I now have most of the price increases on the options I want, but not the MSRP. Even with the price increases, I would lease a 2011 for about the same if not less than the 2010.
Thanks for the tip, Storm. It really made all the difference.

Has anyone heard any definitive news about rebates for 2010 GL450s? I want to buy a 2010 GL450, but I've been waiting in the hope that there will be generous $10,000 rebates like last year. Please share any information or advice you have in this regard. Thank you.

#503 of 716 current rates/resids and deals on 2010 450?
Jul 11, 2010 (11:11 am)
can anyone please let me know what the current numbers (mf, resid, and incentives) are from MB for the 2010 GL450? How much off mrp should i look to get? Looking at 36 month and 12k per year.
Are the above mentioned rebates expected in July or August?
Thanks in advance.

Ditto here...waiting patiently for August 1st when the new rebates for the for 2010 GL450 are released. There seems to be quite a bit of inventory for the for 2010 GL450 so I am hoping for $10k (same as August 2009) but would certainly be happy with $5k or half of what was offered in August 2009. By looking back in the archives for this forum it seems that substantial rebates were also offered in August 2008.
Seems to me that many folks are purchasing at about $2K under invoice right now and a good price at the beginning of August would perhaps be Invoice less $2k less whatever rebate number is offered.
Dragongz, I am also in Los Angeles.

Since 2011 models will be available this month in July and there are plenty of 2010 GL's remaining - there is a good chance for an additional cash incentives in August.
But I don't think it will help a lot with leasing, as I expect residuals of 2010's to drop even further. However, it will help a lot, if somebody wants to purchase/finance and even take advantage of the low APR.
