#473 of 492 Re: 2012 Closeouts: Is 15% off MSRP good enough? [hoos30]
Aug 19, 2012 (6:33 pm)
I bought a 2012 enclave fwd-leather group w/ white diamond tricoat on 7/31/12. Total Sticker price = $41,335. Agreed upon value of the vehicle = $38,685.92. Manufacter rebates = $3,750. Total Final price = $34,935 for no sunroof. Before you buy, ask yourself if you or any of your passengers (pets included) can hear and or tolerate a constant 60 decibel 9kHz tone from the radio head unit. An informed customer is a happy customer. Ask the dealership for printout of the not so public Bulletin "#PIT5166A: High Pitch Sound From Radio Display - (Jun 28, 2012)". I get headaches every time I drive the vehicle because of this annoying tone. Per the Bulletin, GM has no solution and customer service says they cannot provide any more information (oh like, when will a resolution be provided). See my post under enclave audio problems if you are interested in further details including gm customer service scripts for when something is wrong.

Do you mean that the tone is coming from the radio even when it is turned off?

Another consideration: I am planning to replace the factory radio with an aftermarket one (Advent OGM 1, I think it's called). Would that alleviate the concern for me?

Yes, the tone comes from the radio cd slot even when turned off. Just by opening the door the tone will start and stay on for 15 seconds. Once the key is in the ignition, the tone will not stop. I have no idea if the source of the resonance is directly tied to the radio unit. If radio unit is acting like a wave guide then changing the radio unit may not resolve the problem. That should be the responsibility of GM to answer but they are not saying a word.

#479 of 492 January 2013 incentive
Jan 10, 2013 (2:25 pm)
Live in the New Orleans area. I am looking to purchase a 2012 or 2013 Enclave with leather and bose speaker upgrade. My company has a vehicle policy with a 4 or 5 year retention. Any ideas on what factory to dealer incentives are? Are there any loyalty incentives? Is it better to hold off till Feb? How much is a model year worth? For example, is a 2012 a better value if $4k or $5k less?
#480 of 492 Looking to buy '13 AWD Premium
Mar 17, 2013 (7:36 pm)
I am looking to buy a 2013, MSRP $52,000, invoice $49,200. Looks like there is a $1,500 incentive. How much should I pay, no trade, no finance, before tax/tags? Thanks!

You might want to lease for 3 years and then buy it out at end. Just leased arcadia denali mf is .00040 which is less than 1 % and rebates totaled 5000.00 off (northeast). Vehicles are sell about 600 over invoice so if you leased it final price is about 45000.00.
#482 of 492 New 2013 FWD Leather Just Purchased in NC!
Mar 30, 2013 (3:38 am)
We planned to buy a 2012, but man I LOVE the new cosmetic changes to the 2013.... SO... with the March factory incentives and slightly bulging inventory from a long winter, we decided to work VERY hard to find a fairly priced 2013 NOW and not wait until the fall. My wife is a born negotiator (she actually loves doing it), so she worked the phones a full day across the state of NC and got me my dream car - a 2013 Carbon Black with Ebony interior.. the white stitching is killer!
Here's the deal: BTW, PM me if you'd like an intro to the North Carolina Dealer we purchased our car from... I can't say enough about them. And they're shipping cars all across the nation.
OK, here are the numbers's:
2013 Buick Enclave
45,090 MSRP - Leather Group + 19" Rims + Carbon Black + Delivery
6,364 Minus Dealer Discount + GM Incentives
38,726 Discounted Price
495 Doc Fee
1,162 3% Sales Tax
40,500 OTD Price
