Hi,<p>I found a new 2006 grey V70R with:<p>Premium Package<br>Nav System<br>Atacama Leather<br>Geartronic<br>Convenience Package<br>Climate Pack<br>IAQS<p>The MSRP is 50,290 ... which I have to say is high to begin with. It took me about 10 minutes (I'm not exaggerating) to get the salesguy down to 41,007. Is this an ok deal, or should I hold our for 39,990 which was my plan to begin with (is my plan wishful thinking?<p>Thanks!<p>jhleung<br>1993 940T owner .... I've never owned a nom-RWD Volvo....

I also had LoJack and tint added to the car. I think right around 50,ooo with taxes. I have a MT which is typically cheaper than the GT.<p>I don't think he'll budge from that price with all tose options and they are probably trying to move that car with that interior. It dosen't really clash good with grey IMHO. I think it looks great with Sonic Blue.

Re: Is this a good deal for a 2006 V70R (KillerB)

Hi, yes, I do like the interior. When you say yours was 34K + all the options bringing it up to 48K, do you mean you paid 34K for a car which listed at 48K MSRP, or do you mean you PAID 34K + options =~ 40, 41K?<p>Thanks!<p>

Re: Is this a good deal for a 2006 V70R (jhleung)

I leased mine for 12K off MRSP (48K MSRP, negociated price 36K). The purchase price was about 9K off MSRP. If you are buying cash it makes sense to purchase. If financing, do a lease and then pay or finance the residual.<p>BTW It took me 0 minutes to bring down the price, there were huge stickers on the windows of several Rs with the lease and purchase prices. Start from 9K, then haggle some more.

It's a flat rate with no bargins. So the base price was 34,000...it's higher now, but then you start adding stuff like the options and it toppled out to 48,000. Some of the options I got...like laminated side windows...are not available anymore due to saftey reasons. I think it was around 750.oo for that option...maybe 595.00. It's been about year since I ordered the 06.<p><br><BR><BR>

I don't think you can get the price down any further on a straight purchuse, but I may be wrong. I'm sure I'll be corrected once the east coast people like JRL and Bob get out of bed. They'll know for sure and I'm only giving you what my experience has been.<p>Even though cheaper, IMHO I think the lease is a waste unless you using the payments as a tax write off.

Hmmmm, yes, the 9.2K off is with me paying cash, not leasing. Perhaps I'll see what some others chime in with on their opinions?

Re: (jhleung)

The '07s are already $4-5k off sticker in my zip. <p>I am waiting for the '07 price to come down some more. (So guys, please clear those '06s out of Volvo's inventory!)<p>When it comes to trading -- and I am absolutely certain that I will not keep it for 13 years -- 3 years is more like it -- imagine trying to maintain a 13 year old Volvo with an active suspension and computer-controlled headlights... <p>...in 3 years an '07 should be worth a few bucks more (how many bucks I'll let JRL chime in with exactly how many he predicts) than an '06. So that part of the equation should cross out.<p>I plan to pay cash, also.

Re: (bill d cat)

07's are out.<br>This makes an 06 already a year old car.<br>Now, saying that, this is probably the only Sonic/Ata left for sale in the country.<br>Is this the one from Berkley, they've had it all year?

Hmmm so it seems that the "general" consensus is that paying cash, no lease, no trade in, that a MSRP of 50,290 down to 41,007 is not a bad deal .....<p>but does anyone think i can get the dealer down to 39,990? The edmumds and kbb website are completely useless because they list invoice price to be in the 46,xxx range ... so obviously there's a bunch of dealer holdback at work here?<p>Thanks much,<p>jhleung

Re: (jhleung)

If it is what you want, it is an OK deal. I recall Volvo was giving $10K off MSRP on a lease deal a while back. Since 2007's are here, I would think there may be a little room to negotiate if that is your thing. <p>The lack of a 6 speed manual would be a deal breaker for me, but you may feel just the other way and demand the Geartronic. <p>I do not like to haggle over prices, and gave full MSRP for my 2004, and got an 2005 at invoice price, so I am not wise counsel here!

If I recall my car was initially about 11K off on a lease and I haggled the other 1K. The incentives come from the manufacturer, the dealer still has some margin.

I say offer them $39,990 and see what they say but be willing to walk away for at least a day or two. I like to save every penny I can, but some people don't like the hassle but in my opinion it never hurts to ask. I was pretty much told I was crazy with my offer on a 2006 S60R but wound up getting it for what I was willing to pay. My opinion is every dollar I save is one more dollar towards retirement.

Re: (gonelaxin)

I don't believe there ever has been an option for 18" on the V70R in the US, due to availability of tires with proper load rating.

Volvo has cash-to-dealer incentives, which the dealer can choose to pass on to you, or not, that would allow pricing below invoice.<p>Where are you getting this 39990 number from? Did you just pull it out of thin air and decide, "This is what I want to pay, based on nothing factual that I have,"? You're getting a good deal as it is. So if you want to pay 39990 for the car, why don't you just make that your offer instead of coming online here to have us buy your car buying for you? The retailer will either accept or decline your offer . . . it's not like there's a whole lot of mystery in that. <p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>jhleung</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Hmmm so it seems that the "general" consensus is that paying cash, no lease, no trade in, that a MSRP of 50,290 down to 41,007 is not a bad deal .....</TD></TR></TABLE><p>So . . . are you trying to say that $9,283 off sticker is a <i>bad</i> deal? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">
