#347 of 484 Re: Offer on the table in the Los Angeles area [zhuz1008] / My experience
Feb 28, 2011 (11:31 pm)
Mine finally came! So far, so good. I'm still testing everything out and getting used my new toy. Wooo!
Just to sum up my buying experience. The dealer offered me $300 over invoice on the spot but he mentioned the Costco discount so I renewed my Costco membership to get $500 under invoice. But this discount is countered by a $500 advertising fee which is supposed to be common for all dealerships in the DC area (my dealership is in Alexandria, VA). So with the Costco discount I paid right at invoice.
I ordered my XC60 on Dec 17th and it was ready for me to pick up on Feb 24th. The wait sucked.
Total invoice was $45,995:
(nadaguides.com has an accurate listing of invoice prices)
2011 XC60 T6- $36,096
Saville Grey / Black interior- 517
Multimedia Pkg- 2538
Technology Pkg- 1974
Convenience Pkg- 1128
Climate Pkg- 940
At F&I I was offered but declined: Lojack ~$1000 (do you need this when the vehicle has an ignition immobilizer?), 7-year paint sealant and interior treatment ~$690 (didn't believe it would work - I'll just wax and clean as necessary), tire & rim warranty ~$750 (likely damage would be from an accident and covered by my auto insurance), 4-year dent protection ~$700 (I'll just get dents/dings repaired as needed by a paintless dent repair guy), and maybe one other thing.
I did buy a 10-year, 105K warranty for $3350 to cover the electronics and help the resale of this vehicle (I'll probably sell at year 7 so I can hopefully get a full-electric mid-size SUV).
So my total vehicle cost was:
Titling tax- 96
Dealer Business Lic. tax- 78.84
Sales tax (MD)- 2072.19
License fee- 180
Dealer Processing fee- 379
= $49,601.03 + $3350 (warranty) = $52,951.03. (Doh!)
The front blind view camera is not included in the Multimedia package, so I'm waiting for a price for the dealer to install that. Has anyone had this installed yet? I don't know why Volvo doesn't make that an option for the US. It's an option for UK buyers.

After an 8 week waiting period from the time I ordered my XC60 to the time it arrived here in New Orleans, the final process was very simple.
The dealer and I had already agreed to a final price when I ordered the car. I got:
2011 XC60 3.2 FWD with Sensus (Ordered after Nov 2010)
Black Stone/Sandstone Beige
My Price after Volvo Owner Loyalty Cash: $35,969
My Final agreed-to price was $35,969. That includes $1000 of Volvo Owner Loyalty cash. When I placed the order, I had to put down $2000.
So when the car came in, the amount owed was $33,969 less $8000 for my S40 trade-in plus TTL.
The whole paperwork process at the dealership took about 30 minutes or so. Super-fast and very easy to do.
#349 of 484 March Incentives?
Mar 01, 2011 (6:52 pm)
Car Man- Do you know if there are any incentives on the XC60 for March? I thought the 2.9% financing for 60 months and the $1000 loyalty bonus were still in effect, but not sure if something else has come along. Thanks!
#350 of 484 What is the instructional pannel background color?
Mar 09, 2011 (9:55 pm)
Could any 2011 xc60-T6 owner tell me what is the background color in the instructional pannel?
I realize when I tested drive, I saw a blue background, the color just like the blue volvo logo. I know the Redesign shows blue but not sure if the T6 should also be blue. My car only shows bright white over dark.

Mine is white lettering over a black background. It would have been nice to have a blue background in the T6 but oh well.
Volvo is putting too many of the nice touches only in the R-design. I didn't order the R-design though because of the tires and the suspension (and there's a bit too much chrome). I really wanted the smoother ride of the regular T6 so it was a trade-off for me.

The Japan situation has impacted all manufacturers, including Volvo. Don't count on any incentives due to the supply crunch.

#355 of 484 Long wait
Apr 05, 2011 (7:39 pm)
I ordered an awd xc60 on march 3 and have been informed the car will be available at the end of May- a full 12 weeks after the order was placed! The sales manager said the wait times have become so long b/c many xc60s are being diverted to China. He said they only had 3 units delivered to them last month. Has anyone else had this problem or heard of this issue?

Sales Manager is right about increased length of time, but wrong about reason. Japanese companies manufacture 10% of the Volvo's parts. The earthquake/tsunami/meltdown has disrupted the supply chain.
