You may be having difficulty getting the best discount because the dealer does not have the car sitting on their lot. Go to the Buick website and find what dealers have your car and email the internet manager for a quote. I just purchased a fairly loaded new (25 mi) 2009 silver green metallic Enclave CXL from a local Buick dealer here in So Cal and couldnít be happier with the car and the deal. It took a little bit of shopping via email with internet car sales people but ended up buying the car for $38,000 + sales tax and DMV registration (no added fees). The car had a Mfg. window sticker of $47,100.00 and they even told me if my wife didnít like the color, I could exchange it for a silver Enclave with the same options and price! They gave me 48 hours to return for an even exchange. What a pleasurable buying experience and of course my wife loved the car.

A reporter wants to interview someone who drives a 3-row crossover, has kids and plans to drive the vehicle to a vacation destination instead of taking an airplane.

I just got a call from them independently & starting quote seemed pretty good...did you manage to negotiate them down or were they pretty firm?

I finally settled on a Buick Enclave CXL with a MSRP or $42,950. I had been looking for about 2 months. Since I've started looking, the lease to cash money has gone from $2000 to $1500, the $500 private offer coupon is not combinable with the 0% interest offer, and since the vehicle I wanted turns out to be a demo with 2000 miles on it, I can take it with a $300 discount or take a zero mile new one on a dealer trade and pay about $800 more due to a price increase from Buick on vehicles built after October (I think that's what they said). So, I look at this as an $1800 increase in two months. I'm trying to buy American, but why?
For what it's worth, I was offered invoice minus $1000 (of their $1121 holdback). With 0% financing, the $1500 lease to buy cash, and $1000 from the GM card (I've got $8200 in credits---but with limitations), I was at $37,200 +tax/tag. Is this a competitive offer???? Please advise.
Also considering an Acura MDX, but prefer 2nd row captain chairs. But, they seem to be a bit more expensive and with the interest expense the Buick is still appealing
Thanks in advance for your feedback.

The MSRP on a 2008 Enclave clx was $44610. the car has 1700 miles on it, but is still titled as new. We settled on a price $37052....am I leaving any money on the table.
The supplier price was $42092 - $2500 cash back...a $640 credit for the miles, and a ....finally less $1500 for the dealer hold back.

I think you did fine. Could you have ground out another few hundred, ya probably, but you got an essentially NEW car for a great bottom line.
Forget about what you could have had and enjoy your ride. If you are anything like me, you are going to thoughly appreciate the Enclave.
#353 of 507 2008 Buick Enclave...GM Buyback??
Apr 28, 2009 (7:21 am)
I am looking at a 2008 Enclave CXL AWD Loaded to the max...with 20,000.
The vehicle looks brand new, however, the dealer indicated that the unit is a GM Buy Back vehicle....he comments regarding the buyback were:
The buyback resaon for this Enclave is "Transmission shift calibration was not to customer's expectations." There is not an issue with the transmission, the customer just didn't like the calibration of the transmission.
He also went on to say that the remainder of the 48K bumper to bumper warranty was still in tact, along with the remaining drivetrain warranty.
Has anyone ever purchased a GM BUYBACK vehicle??
Does the GMS pricing apply to these Buyback vehicles?
Thanks in advance.
