I am considering purchasing a 2009 XC70. Two part question:<p>1. When do the 2009 model year vehicles become "last year's" model year for negotiating purposes?<p>and,<p>2. What is an appropriate price reduction, in this economy, for last year's models sitting on dealer lots?<p>Tracking website inventories, it's clear that local dealers have not been moving these and tracking the Wallenius shipping histories on these cars indicates they've been sitting on the lots for a long time. <p>P.S. I apologize in advance if this is the wrong forum to post this, but none of the others jumped out at me as being a better fit.

Re: When to consider 09 as "last year's model" in purchase negotiations? (Webhund)

Sorry, I don't have the answers, but I'm also considering getting a 2009 xc70, the deals are just too good right now. I also have some questions:<p>1. When will the 2010's arrive?<br>2. Does anyone have a picture of the cosmetic grill changes on the 2010?<p>Normally we would always buy these Volvo wagons, put 90k miles on it, sell it ourselves in a week and buy another. We've been doing this for 20 years, but now we're stuck with my wife's '04, it won't move at all. So, we may give it to one of the kids, I"m sure they'll just love that cool soccer mom car! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>My thinking now is to lease a new one, so we can dump it without trouble in 3-4 years. By then, gas prices will be high again for sure and these Volvo's will be moving like glue for resale due to their lousy mileage. Also by then, hopefully Volvo will have a higher mileage new version of the xc70 and we'll just grab it then.<p>that's the theory at least.....we love the cars, but I'm totally spooked now on owning one of these low mileage versions, I don't think it will resale at all a few years from now.

IMO, 2009's are on the cusp of becoming last year's model. However, the June promo (if it doesn't stay) of the Safe and Sound and $5250 dealer allowance and $2500 loyalty cash make it compelling; especially if you keep a car for more than a few years.

Edmunds only shows $1000 loyalty and $3250 dealer support. So what are the correct amounts?<p>Still tempting with that safe and sound. I LOVE the idea of not having to worry about anything for 5 years. I hope that program doesn't go away, it definitely is an added incentive. Too bad my old V70 doesn't get 1mpg less, I could also have taken advantage of that cash for clunkers. And if only the new V70 wasn't so boring....
