#396 of 469 2012 Volvo XC60
Aug 11, 2011 (4:42 am)
Just wanted everyone's opinion: I am working on a deal for a
2012 XC 60 3.2 FWD
Without any loyalty money for $1000 total drive off and $615 a month for 60 months with a rate of 2.99%. I calculated the purchase price to be around $34,000. I'm not sure if my calculations are correct. Please let me know what you guys think. Should I push for a better deal? Thanks!!!

Is that a lease?

It's a purchase. With tax(6%), tag and title included

Frankly... that doesn't seem possible...

I know it seems too good to be true but I do have it in writing from the sales associate. So it is a really good deal, right?

I'm betting on it being a lease or a balloon note... (hope I'm wrong)

well it turns out the sales women claims they made a MISTAKE and it became 72 months and she had the nerve to ask if we still had a deal. NO!!
Now I have another deal on a:
2011 FWD 3.2 with Premium Plus
multimedia package with sensus
purchase for 72 months $1000 drive off and $609 a month. I am planning on getting the Resistall protection included and possibly a cargo mat for the cargo area. Is this a good deal, I can't tell anymore. Lastly it is white exterior with the sandstone interior which has me very nervous because it is so light. Any thoughts please????

I might need to look for another salesperson, if not a different DEALER! You shouldn't have to 'calculate' a sales price, as you mentioned earlier. If you are buying, you simply want to know the TOTAL price incl tax, tag, title. YOU decide what to put down and YOU decide how much to finance. I believe 2.99% is available from many sources...don't get wrapped up in financing through your dealer(I went with Volvo for 1.9% in April on our C70; but PenFed CU had 2.49 at that time--still current up to 60months).
As for the color of the interior, we've had two sandstone and two calcite white interiors...even with a Scottie in the back seat, no problems. Just need to clean/condition regularly. I think the white exterior looks good on the XC60.
Remember, your second 'deal' is on a year-old vehicle...how much should that be worth to you?

AND it sounds like the F&I person saw you coming . Unless they are absolutely 'throwing in' the ResistAll to help seal the deal, the only folks I know who think it's a good deal are the dealers and their F&I folks.
The half-dozen items listed on that 'add-on' piece of paper in the F&I office are at best more 'insurance' against 'something', at worst a complete rip.
YMMV and all that!

Don't worry my second "deal" is at another dealership. And thanks I feel better about the sandstone now. I am going to work on them more tomorrow!
