I placed an order for this car since there was not one in the area with exactly the options and colors I wanted. It's a Diesel model and you don't see many of them for sale here. So I will actually buy the car in about 3 months which is great because it will give me enough time to sell my 2 cars. Please look at the price and options I got and let me know if I should still try to negotiate a better price when the car is here? So far it seems really hard to negotiate the price for the 2011 diesel model because there are not many available.
2011 Mercedes GL350 Black/Black
Premium 1 Package
Blind Spot Assist
Chrome door inserts
With Costco discount (some $ amount above invoice price) -
USAA Incentive $3,000
$7,400 below MRSP
They said if I was employed I could have qualified for an extra discount. Also sometimes Mercedes offers cash back. Not at the moment though.
It's good to ask about all the discounts. Otherwise they might not tell you. Also different dealers gave me different "Costco" quote... This was the best offer by almost $2,000 so I decided to take it.
P.S. also check out the Autonation direct, they will shop around for you and tell you the best prices they found with all the incentives available. Their service is free.
#543 of 716 2011 GL350: just got it!
Nov 21, 2010 (8:37 am)
2011 GL350 Bluetec
Pre-Wire for rear seat Ent
MSRP: just shy of $68K
I paid $58.5K. I haggled the price down to $61.5K then I received $3K USAA discount which brought the final price to $58.5K.
On a different note, I have a immaculate '09 GL450 with less than 17,000 miles on it that I'm looking to sell. I'm located in Southern California. If interested, shoot me an e-mail to sumobaby00verizon.net. It'll only be availabe for the next couple of days as I'll probably sell it to Carmax.
#544 of 716 Consolidated list of all discounts
Dec 05, 2010 (8:22 am)
I'm looking to buy 2011 GL350 soon. I need everyone's help to come up with a consolidated list of all discounts available on new MB...this will not only help me, but other prospective buyers as well (thanks in advance!). The dealers won't share this information with you! Here's what I have so far from postings in this forum -
Costco - $3600 (it varies though...need Costco card)
USAA - $3000 (I'm not sure if everyone is eligible...though this discount is for military personnels, USAA offer services like credit cards to everyone. Will check with dealer on Monday if just using their services will suffice)
AAA - $1500 (My dealer was offering this)
Visa/Master Card - $500 (My dealer was offering this)
If you work for companies that uses MB Fleet Services - $1500 to $2500 (Many companies participate...Executives get $2500 and others $1500).

#546 of 716 $2500 below Invoice
Dec 15, 2010 (11:39 pm)
I am on the lookout for a bigger SUV. I have been quoted 2500 below invoice on a 2011 GL450. Can I do better in this market? I am in the SoCal area.
Thanks in advance!
#547 of 716 $2500 below invoice
Dec 16, 2010 (8:19 am)
$2500 below invoice is an excellent price in my opinion. What options are you getting? What is the MSRP? I am also in the market for a GL 450. Can you give me the contact information for this dealer. Good Luck. Thanks.

I got this from Mercedes Benz of Anaheim. I don't know the options on the car but I am still unsure what to do about my current vehicle. Good luck!
