#354 of 399 2009 Vibe 2.4L GT Platinum Metallic
Jun 22, 2009 (4:21 am)
We just got our 2.4L GT Liquid Platinum (Silver) Metallic with Automatic yesterday in Houston, Texas. The Preferred Package (remote entry, pwr doors/locks/window/cruise, etc.) on it is standard. A/C is standard, and Monsoon sound/leather wrap steeering wheel, etc. is standard. Options are, Auto 5 speed transmission, Power Sunroof, and Smokers Package. Sticker Price shows $21,680. Dealer quoted me invoice of $19,200. We received the following rebates: $2,000 Loyalty cash, $500 cash rebate (in lieu of 0% APR), $500 dealer cash for a price of $16,200. We have $3,000 in GM Card topped off rebates for a price of $13,200. Drive out price including Tax Title, License, Doc. Fee, Dealer Prep etc. was $14,250. I thought this was a pretty good price for a GT.

I'm considering to get a similar one but MSRP for GT with auto, sunroof, and smoker package is $23295 and invoice is $21933. How did you get $19200 before $3000 rebate? Please replay as I need to make an offer very soon. Thank!

The GT I purchased was assembled last year (2008) because it had 09 (month) inspection sticker. That means it may have been assembled around June-July 2008. Many of the features, for example the power package, sound package, A/C etc. were all standard features on this car. On the latest ones, all these features are options and costs additional money. The destination charge was $585, and now it is $635. That may be the difference why the MSRP and the invoice prices were lower on the car I purchased than the newer cars. Also, this car was driven 150 miles from another dealership as an exchange for a different color.

The GT I'm considering is also made last year and everything standard, just added Auto, Sunroof and about $300 other options, so it is very similar to yours. It does have a lower MSRP than the current one ($22680 instead of $23680), but that is still $1800 higher than your. Seems that they had some mid-year price increase. Will try to find out from GM and see if I can get a similar offer like yours.

I purchased my 2009 Vibe GT in April, 2008. The standard vehicle price was $19,310 + $1050 (Auto trans.) + $700 (sunroof) + $585 (dest. charge) = $21,645 MSRP......Hope this helps for your starting point....

raythegerman, do you remember the invoice price of your GT?
My GT Sticker has exactly same features and costs, an additional item is Smokers Package which brought the MSRP to 21,680.

The best offer we can get is $18000. It is a red GT added Auto, Sunroof, Theft Alarm, and Cargo Cover. The current MSRP is $23615. They had it $22680 as MSRP. It also has 150 miles on it. So it is like $1000 more on early MSRP and $1800 more than your deal. Anyway, thank you all for all the information.
#363 of 399 Vibe 1.8L Manual Trans w/Preferred Pkg and AC
Jun 24, 2009 (7:57 am)
Looking for thoughts on this one. Are dealers generally more willing to give a good price on a manual transmission since most buyers want automatic, or do they price higher because there are fewer manual trans Vibes for stick-lovers to choose from?
Supplier price 17,915 or 18,059 depending which GM website you believe (neither is a very good price)
Invoice per Edmunds 17,518
Local dealer is quoting me the following:
$17,893 vehicle price
$204 doc fee
+ taxes and plate transfer
- $500 rebate
- $500 dealer cash (is this the $500 'marketing support' mentioned on the Edmunds site? The GM site currently lists $1,000 cash back so I want to make sure there's not actually $1,500 on the table here, i.e. $1,000 cash back PLUS $500 marketing support)
- $2,000 GM owner loyalty
- $2,000 GM Card (can I really redeem $2k on the Vibe? My card is not one of the old 'unlimited' earnings ones; it says the redemption allowance is $1k on Vibe but I've got a $2k top-off bonus earnings and the GM Card website says "GM Card Bonus Earnings can be used above applicable GM Card program limits."
TOTAL approx $13,100 excluding taxes and plate transfer.
This quote looks to be about $375 above invoice, plus the $204 doc fee.
I've read the recent deals on the thread but just wondering if I should expect that a deal at invoice price is reasonable/attainable? I would think so, but don't want to be too greedy.
The dealer would need to trade for this vehicle, from what I can tell.
Same dealer offered a price of approx $11,600 on a 1.8L manual transmission Vibe with Preferred Package but without AC. That sounded like a much better deal -- $1,500 less than the one with AC, and AC is only a $950 MSRP option.
