#250 of 484 Got my XC60 2011.5 version today
Dec 23, 2010 (2:45 pm)
I am in Chicago and the local dealers have the 2011.5 version already. So I was able to drive one home today. I don't understand why dealers in Chicago got those earlier than east coast.
This is the first SUV I got. I did not test drive this one but tested some earlier versions. The ride of the one I bought is not smooth. I can definitely feel it if there are some bumps on the road. Not sure if there is anything wrong with the suspension system on the new version. And there are only less than 10 miles on it when I bought it. I might need to go back to the dealer to check it out. Did anyone have the same experience?
Here is what I got with the Costco program:
Volvo XC60 2011.5 black/off black with Sensus system
I have a trade-in at $11,000 and the OTD is $32,153 with additional $500 Costco Gift-card.

The ship Falstaff has passed through the Panama Canal and should arrive in CA by the 30th So could easily get delivery on west coast early January.

IF they can find a port that's not covered in mud or washed away entirely! Good luck to all the Cali folks cleaning up after the storms!

What is a "manufacturer's invoice"? I went to a local dealer and the person pulled out a sheet of paper from his binder for the car we are interested. That paper does include advertising fee. But I mean, I can print that paper. It is printed like using an old type writer.
So what exactly is a "manufacturer's invoice"? Thanks.

My Volvo salesman pulled out that sheet of paper as well and it matched perfectly to the invoice price on Edmunds, Costco and other car buying websites. For the XC60 no telling what dealers pay all-things-considered but you're probably doing very well at $2000-$3500 below invoice, if that's even possible.
Edmunds and cars.com still have the same old invoice pricing, but on other buying sites "powered by Zag" the invoice base price recently has gone up by $1500 and the fully loaded invoice has gone up by almost $4000. I'm sure the dealership would be glad for you to buy an XC60 at these "invoice" prices.
There are four Volvo dealerships in my area and I didn't bother calling around to see which one could beat the others' lowest price on my factory order. Maybe I should have but I was too giddy from my test drive to care.

We just got a 2011 with the new Sensus. Custom order for delivery in 6 to 12 weeks.
Final cost is below for
2011 3.0T AWD
Processing fee was $99
Tags was $274
Total price including a 6% sales tax was
$40,500 OTD. We also got a $500 Costco card. So really $40,000 OTD. I think we got a pretty good deals when I checked truecar and other prices people paid for.

Your goal should be 3% of base MSRP before incentives. Everything else is just hurting the buisness and alot of dealers may turn you away at more then that. It doesnt make buisness sense, you are paying for them to wash the car, show you how to work everything, take you on drives and do all your DMV stuff (everyone hates the DMV. ) They have to make money somewhere and if its a family owned buisness you are supporting the economy if you want to look at it differently. The car buisness is the only place where everyone wants everyone to work for free or pay money for you to buy a car. Could you imagine walking up to a lawyer and asking him to pay his company to represent you?
I want everyone to get a fair deal, but dont rape a dealer who then is going to find some else to make all that money back on. Your best goal is to make it fair on both sides. Expect a rise in prices paid on XC60s, the demand is really high - supply is really running short and there is a slow pipeline for XC60s per store with sensus coming.

The manufacturers invoice all depends on the vehicle being purchased pricewise. And yes what you were looking at is it. Its old school but thats the one

Just ordered a 2011.5 XC60
Paid 35,969 after $1000 loyalty cash incentive. Could've gone with a dealer in Baton Rouge for $400 cheaper, but then I wouldn't be able to use the loaner vehicles from my dealership in New Orleans when I take mine in for service, and its easier to deal locally.
Expecting Mar. 10! Can't wait!
