I agree with rohan. That wouldn't be a terrible deal on a leftover '11 ('course, I'd want my Volvo loyalty bucks on top of that).

I am SO excited. Bought the car. Final is xc60 2012 t6 AWD with Platinum, Climate, Dynamic and BLIS. Sea Shell Metallic. I LOVE the car. So unique in shape and styling. And its nice not to be the common car on the road. Navigation/Sensus reviews scard me a bit but I think I'm already sort of used to it.
And final deal is $1346 below invoice. I'm very happy with the deal. I think there is limited supply of the car but also limited 'purchases' for the loaded model so there is flex in pricing.

Any thoughts or recommendations on the following?
2011 XC60, 3.2, AWD, climate package, metallic paint upgrade. It has been the courtesy car for a dealership in Boston since May, and has 7,500 miles on it.
Current offer from the dealer is $34,400, which is $2,400 off the MSRP of $36,800 since it is used. My initial thoughts are that the invoice price is approx $34,800, so after the $2,400 reduction a fair amount to pay would be nommore than $32,400.
This is only the second car I have purchased, so any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

A couple of things to consider would be the warranty in-service date(would be May from what I've been told) and the relatively high mileage for a loaner(1000 miles/month seems a bit high to me). No offense, but I'll bet you could get the same 'offer' on a NEW '11 and close to it on a new '12, based on what I've read here. I like your price much better. Pity the buyer who pays their asking price on a 'year-old' vehicle
Take a look at a Costco buying program or similar to get close to invoice on a new XC60.
Remember: ALWAYS be willing to walk away. It took me more than two vehicle purchases to learn that lesson. Good luck!

Just received this offer via email - 2012 XC60 T6 AWD with Premier Plus, BLIS, and Climate. MSRP $43,920, invoice $41,687, selling price $41,187. The dealer is a bit further than I would like to travel, but this offer is the first I have received. Thought I would pass it on, maybe it will help another member. Dealer is in Chicago area.

Where did you get your vehicle? I just put a deposit on a custom order in the same specs; Platinum, climate, dynamic but without BLIS and used A Plan pricing thinking this was our best shot. Your claim is that you beat that with over $1K in savings...
Let me know your trick so i can continue to negotiate.

Going to pick up my new 2012 XC60 T6 AWD R-Design tomorrow morning. Includes Platinum, Climate, and BLIS. MSRP $50,175. Original offer from the dealer was $48,394 with Volvo loyalty. I don't have one to trade though. Final negotiated price is $47,467. TrueCar says invoice is $47,717. I pushed for $47,000, but they acted like they were bleeding already.

Volvo/NJ/Edison. Use TrueCar for pricing and guidance. And take that to the dealer. $1K below invoice appears average paid price.

That's a pretty good deal!
I just purchased a 2012 XC60 T6 AWD R-Design in Passion Red with Off Black interior, includes Platinum, Climate, BLIS as well. MSRP $50,175. Got it out the door at $46,129 after loyalty bonus, so I was really happy. Especially being that invoice is $47,717. Only downside is that there was only 1 in the country matching what I wanted and it's half way across the country, so to have it shipped to me was another $1k, not too bad though. Expecting delivery next week, can't wait to drive it!

Darned good numbers! That's what I might expect on a leftover 2011. Well done! Arrest-me-red...excellent color! There are some pretty lively discussions over on SwedeSpeed regarding various attributes of the 2012 model. Enjoy the new ride!
