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.

I have received the following offers from a dealer. Please advise whether you think they are good or whether I can do better. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated, as I may make a deal today or tomorrow. Thanks.

$2,028 entertainment system with rear DVD
$348 red jewel paint
$775 destination charge
$404 "dealer IMR contributions" (dealer says this is advertising fees, one from his dealership and one from the dealership where the car is located)
$39,517 total invoice cost + fees - OFFER FROM DEALER IS $39,717
2011 GMC Acadia SLT-1 AWD - $38,175 invoice cost

I don't know where you live but you need to consider Fitzmall in MD. As for your second car request, their website has a 2011 GMC Acadia; Internet Price: $38,650.00 MSRP: $44,330.00
Style: AWD 4dr SLT1
Obviously their deal is way better than whatever you're getting where you are. Understood that this course of action isn't for everyone but I would do it if i could save over $4K on a must have car.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I was already at Fitz and that price is not really cheaper than what I have from the other deal. The Fitz dealer explained to me that the sales price for that vehicle includes a $1,000 GM loyalty discount (which is available at any dealer, but which I am not eligible for) and a $2,000 cash back rebate (which is also available at any dealer, including the one I am working with, but which I will probably decline in favor of 0% financing. The Fitz price also doesn't include the fees I identified in my post, and there would be similar fees at Fitz.
So the Fitz price is not really lower than what I currently have offered from the other dealer, and is probably a little higher. From everything I can tell, the current offer I have is just $200 over invoice for this vehicle - the only issue is the reasonableness of the LMR and advertising fees being charged, though my research indicates that it is very difficult to negotiate much on these.
#462 of 474 Good deal? 2011 Acadia SL w leather/heated seats
Apr 30, 2011 (4:47 pm)
Here's what I got from the dealer:
2011 GMC Acadia SL (they would put in leather seats with heated fronts)
actual $32,289.65 GM supplier discount (not much - didn't sound right)
w/ leather $34,177.15
TTL $3,187.40 (est.)
0% 60-month finance (not leasing, i want to buy)
Total monthly = $569.57
This is their first offer which I never take. I left and I discussed wiggle room, etc. I think they would come back with $560/month, included leather seats, but then put in gap insurance (which for this car seems to have value in buying) which potentially puts me back at $570/month
Deal or no deal? That GM supplier discount sounds low to me but I checked it out and sure enough it was accurate.
#463 of 474 What I paid
May 05, 2011 (7:14 am)
2011 Acadia S with 9611 miles on it for 25,995 + TTL at Brown Buick GMC Subaru in Amarillo TX.
If you live in the area I highly recommend this dealership. They were so easy to deal with that I bought the car on my lunch break.

#466 of 474 2011 Acadia Recent Purchase
Jun 16, 2011 (11:47 am)
Purchased 2011 Acadia SLT1 AWD with sunroof, tow pkg, metallic black, msrp 43290, dealer took 5500 off msrp and i used a 1000 rebate that was distributed by gm for a total of 6500 off msrp. I am happy with the deal.
Jul 01, 2011 (3:42 pm)
Just visited my local GMC dealership and test drove an SLT1. Very nice car.
Here is what they quoted me:
40,995 MSRP - dropped to 39,388 and then another 1,700 off if I lease it.
39 month lease, 12k miles, 3,139 down = 439/month or just first month and DMV down for $509 month.
Good deal? I've never leased before, so just trying to figure this all out.
Thanks in advance.
