Please add your purchase prices and experiences with the new XC60 crossover here. Thanks!
#2 of 469 Lease proposal
Mar 15, 2009 (5:10 am)
I got a quote from a dealer: XC60 MSRP $42,250 (inc.options: Climate package, multimedia package). Lease payment $700 no money down. Sounds fair?
#3 of 469 Going to the 'lov' tour tomorrow!

I guess we'll see what's what. If I get a fair trade on my '07 XC70 and they can match or beat 3.99% financing, I may pull the trigger. My brain says 'wait' but DW wants to sit up high on her 2K mile trip at the end of the month!

I am thinking of trading my S80 (2004) volvo and the dealer is offering me $10,000 for it. The car is in excellent condition with only 40,000 miles. I think it I can sell for me. What do you thin? I am very interested in trading it for the XC60. The dealer is selling the car for $39.000.

What is the MSRP? Invoice? Options?
The $10,000 trade-in sounds decent, but really depends on what model (2.9, 2.5T, T6) S80 you have. I also own an '04 S80 2.9 with 45,000 miles and my dealer would only give me $7000 for it when I was about to purchase an XC90 at the end of last year. I didn't do the deal because i though it was way too low.

Well, I'm trying to contribute! I was off by two days or 200 miles(depending...'lov' tour was in DALLAS last night...Wednesday is the night for AUSTIN). So, I'll check things out then...inventories are tight. Between the two Austin locations, there are only 4 XC60s in stock...nothing matches our 'build'. Quite a few scheduled to arrive over the next 6 weeks or so...might be better to wait until supply catches up with initial demand. Again, we're trading our '07 XC70 and the trade value vs the new sales price will tell the tale. Also, looking for better than 3.99% financing' so, we'll see.....

Well, the Austin 'lov' tour stop was interesting. I'm guessing a very high percentage of attendees will make a purchase of the XC60. After getting very good deals on our RX330 a few years ago(about $6k off sticker) and $12k off our XC70, we are about to 'lose' some money by trading the XC70 and probably getting a whopping $1k off sticker on the 60...which also has about $3k more STUFF than we really want. UNLESS, of course, someone yanks this unit out from under us...the early supply is really limited. Volvo has virtually NO incentives on the new 60---free Sirius(yawn) is the only official offering(OK, 3 years maintenance is included--worth less than a grand). Right now, they won't touch the 3.99% rate available from PenFed CU.
Forgot to mention the giant sunroof that is included N/C on the early models. My guess is that it will be standard on the turbo but not on the FWD/3.2 coming later in the year.
Sorry I won't be able to tell a tale of 'invoice' or below on our purchase. IF this unit is still available in a couple of hours, we will probably take straight book value on the trade(ouch!--about HALF of original sticker) and pay MSRP-$1000 for the 60 that stickers at $46,725. I guess we will leave the wheelin' and dealing' to someone else on this one!!!

Well, kids, our 60 came in a few days early and we now own the first one on the block!!! As mentioned above, we 'stimulated' the economy by paying about $1k below sticker and got straight book on our trade. Tried to find an 'ice white' model but the only one in the pipeline was almost totally base. Went for the 'electric silver' which is one of those colors that picks up surrounding tones...sometimes green, sometimes blue, sometimes silver...very pretty color.
Given the limited availability over the next few months and the state of the economy, I wouldn't imagine any killer deals on the XC 60 for a while...right now, the two dealers in Austin are selling/have sold every unit that comes in.
We did qualify for the 'lifetime' Sirius, free moonroof and free maintenance program. I'm guessing the free Sirius is the only 'freebie' that will disappear for now.
After paying cash for too many $40k plus vehicles, we financed this one through PenFed Credit Union 3.99%...a number that the F&I person said they 'couldn't touch'. Except for our high-mileage habit, we would have considered leasing this one...over 20k miles/year kills that idea. If we could just shorten the distance from Austin to Atlanta!
On another note, DOZENS of BMWs and Audis were pummeled in a recent hailstorm(tennis ball sized hail) along with many less expensive marques. Time will tell what effect that will have on the luxo market here in Austin...glad our 60 wasn't in town yet!!!

thanks for the update, has this been confirmed that 3.2 FWD is coming later this year? My volvo dealer (largest in VA) did not even know that would be an option for xc60. What would be mileage/performance/price difference vs. current powertrain configuaration?
Also. apparently there's a 5K dealer cash avail for xc60 from 4/1-4/30, so this could be potentially used to get the price closer or below invoice....
