#450 of 474 Re: How much to pay for 2011 GMC Acadia
Oct 09, 2010 (12:41 pm)
I'm purchasing an Acadia soon and have solid offers from two local dealers.
2011 SLT1 Metallic black w/Ebony interior w/Sunroof. MSRP 40,570. Initially when I talked with them I could only get them to 38,306. I wasn't happy about the price so I started searching on how to get the best deal. Low and behold, I found a site and started a price war btwn the dealers. This will work with all dealers and not just with GMC. You have to follow the rules exactly as it reads. I have a solid deal for 36,800 out the door priced.. tax, tags and title...

#452 of 474 2011 Acadia - leasing options?
Dec 14, 2010 (9:41 am)
Hi - We are in Carmel, indiana and are looking at a 2011 FWD SLT1 Acadia - black with navigation, dvd and towing package. We have never leased - but are interested in it. The dealer quotes us $42638 (for supplier pricing / costco pricing (were within $30 of each other). We have a 2005 Honda Odyssey for trade-in that they said they would give us $10,000 for. Now the leasing part is where i get confused - here is what they offered us:
if we put the $10K down (not sure if this is a good idea or not) - it would be a payment of $398/month - (39 month lease - 15k miles/yr - 3.45% APR and residual of 46%) They also said we could do a 36 month lease at the same apr of 3.45% for $400 / month with a 48% residual.
or - if we wanted to keep $8000 from the trade-in - we could do a 39 month lease for $640/month with residual 46% or 36 month for $660 month - 48% residual.
They also said we might want to consider a shorter term lease of 24 months - if we put all $10000 down could pay $385/month (APR 1.15% with 54% residual) or take $8000 back and pay $760 / month. They said all of these options include a $2500 rebate and the 1st payment is made. Please let me know your thoughts as this is our first experience with leasing and is rather confusing!

#454 of 474 Am I getting a fair price?
Dec 28, 2010 (10:07 pm)
In NJ and comparing a quote from 1 dealer...It's for a SLT1 AWD Acadia Summit White, Ebony Interior. Dual Sunroof, DVD Entertainment in the back, 7 passenger.
MSRP IS $45,595, INVOICE IS $43,022.56 LESS $501. = $42,521.56 LESS REBATES
They said I qualify for 0% financing with my credit of 739. I have not told them that I intend to trade in my 2009 Mazda CX7. I was told to do this after we have agreed upon a price.
Also, 1 more question: When a dealer adds options, I noticed there is an MSRP for the Option as well as the Invoice price. I assume, I should be expecting to get the invoice price of them correct?
Thanks so much

Use the features of this site. According to them you should be targeting a price of 41 before rebates. Also use the request quote from dealer option. and start working them against each other. I'm not sure about the strategy of getting the trade value after your price is established. Is that what the dealer says if so I'd question that. You should have a good price already in mind of what that should be by using the used car features here. I'd look to have the trade factored into your overall deal as you negotiate. That's one more variable they can tinker with to get your payments down by increasing the trade value without impacting the price of the car. I bought a similar car with Nav if you look just above your post last week. But overall, I'd say use all the features of this site.

The idea of a lease is not to put anything down.... you do not own the vehicle. You would be better off selling your other car and keeping the cash in the bank in case you decide to buy a car in a few years. Realize that if you lease R you getting any write offs off on your taxes. After 2-3 years you give the car back, you have nothing. Be aware leasing is not for every one! If in 2-3 years you have nothing to put down so you start from scratch. If you can afford it, borrow the money from your self and you be the leasing company, you would be better off. This way it is 0% and no rent charge.
#457 of 474 2011 Acadia Denali Pricing & Questions
Jan 28, 2011 (9:17 pm)
Signed contract yesterday for a new 2011 Denali, White Diamond Tricoat/Cashmere with NAV and second row console. I added $150 for dark tinting front windows (legal in TX). MSRP is $46,980 and Inv is $45,401. Negotiated a final price of $42,900 (before adding $150 for window tinting). Edmunds TMV is $45,325, so I think I got a good deal. Any comments? I am putting down $3,000.
1. Dealer financing form calculates the 6.25% sales tax on the selling price BEFORE down payment deducted. Shouldnt they deduct the $3K down pmt BEFORE calculating tax?
2. Dealer added "Dealer Inventory Tax" of $80.51. Is that Kosher?
3. Dealer also added $125 for document fee. I understand that this number is negotiable. Any comments on what be a fair number. I had heard that anything over $100 is high.

1) In Texas you pay tax on the price of the car... doesn't matter how much is down..
2) The inventory tax is a dealer tax, but virtually every dealer in Texas passes it on to the consumer
3) Document fees used to be restricted by law in Texas, but no longer... so, they might be all over the map..
2) and 3).. Total $200... You'd have an easier time trying to negotiate your deal down by another $200 than focusing on these two fees... All that matters is the total cost, in the end.
