Chevrolet Traverse Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • wavehowaveho Posts: 31
    Don't know if this is helpful, but here are the numbers for my loaded LTZ purchased last year for my 2009: MSRP Sticker: $46,550. Lowered to Supplier Pricing of $43,720, then was given a $2,250 Mfr's Rebate available at the time, and then applied my $1,000 GM credit card rebate for a total of $40,470. Basically turned out to be $6,100 off the sticker price. I was also given a very good amount on my trade (2002 Suburban with high miles), which was more than $1,000 than any other dealer would offer me, and I checked with 5 different dealers, so I would count that as a bonus too. So I figure if I could get over $6000 for a top of the line model, you should be able to get at least $3K if not more off the MSRP for the LT1 and LT2, which may have less negotiating room for the dealer.

  • Just purchased a 1LT in Phoenix and while maybe not the best deal, I'm happy with it. A local dealer was advertising $5000 + off on all Traverse's, so we went to our local Chevy dealer to look at upgrading our existing Equinox we had purchased there. We ended up getting $6500 off the MSRP - $3000 discount, $2000 std rebate, $1000 because our other car is a Lexus and $500 to beat the other dealer's price. They gave us KBB 'good' trade in value for the Equinox and all in all, I was very happy with the buying experience at Midway Chevy.

    I am in Phoenix also. Could you please post the details of your purchase/lease (original MSRP, price paid, etc.)? My wife wants to buy a Traverse, and I'd like to figure out what we should expect to pay. Thanks!

    Just bite the bullet and purchased a AWD Traverse , had to trade in my 2008 LT Equinox to get the deal done.
    Got employee pricing and the dealer took off $8000 from the total purchase price which included the tax. This SUV 2LT has cashmere leather with dark titanium trim interior so the carpet is grey, twin sunroofs with a power tailgate, trailer package,pwr passenger seat nice and the standard XM sat radio/cd player, 18 inch wheels . The color is red jewel metallic hope it doesn't chip easily, it's a very visually striking same colors as our Equinox is that's what sold us on it.
    Will pick it up Wednesday and thanks to all the staff at GSL Chevy for making this purchase happen. :D
  • Original MSRP 33,609 (1LT), minus $3,500 discount and $3,000 rebates (including the Toyota owners rebate) put the final purchase price at 27,109 + TTL. Other than a rather rocky delivery, the transaction was very smooth. Had the car a week now and no issues - drives very smooth, comfortable (with the exception of the danged headrest) and handles well. Coming up on the 1st tank of gas and so far 18 MPG combined..

    How does this look?

    2011 1LT AWD
    sell price = 32460
    resid=.46% = 16318
    rebates 2000
    term= 48
    payments 364 with 1st payment +taxes, fees up front(so approx 2300 total
    NYS 8.75
    ACQ Fee 995
  • I am considering a 2011 Traverse 2LT with typical options (Leather, Nav-Entertainment, Blue Tooth, and sunroof)

    MF=0.0004 (about 0.5%) woo hoo!
    Residual= 50% $22,048

    The only question that remains is the price of the car. There is a $2500 cash allowance advertised on that seems to apply to leasing but I can not tell for sure. It says that you can not use in combination with 0%/60mo financing but does not specifically say anything about leasing.

    One dealer has told me that there is a $1200 cash allowance that they can use toward a lease.

    Another told me that there is a $1600 cash allowance that they can use toward a lease.

    They both said that I could not use the 2500 on a lease, but then where are they getting the lower cash allowances from?

    How do I find out definitively what the official chevy cash is on a lease?

    If you focused on telematics (Sync, OnStar, etc) or ignored it completely in your 2011 car-shopping experience, email by Monday, October 17, 2011 and include your daytime contact information.

    I'm working with a dealer via internet. I am NOT a negotiator which is kind of where we are at in this process. I'm not sure what to counter with and would love some input. Vehicle invoices for 42951 based on consumer reports.

    Vehicle 2012 Traverse 2LT, the dealers offer is:

    $43,916.78 minus rebates $ 2,750.00
    Tax 767.93
    License is $218.00
    Trade value at $36,000 and payoff at $34,170.15,
    Total amount financed $40,472.86
    72 months at 2.99% is 615.52 per month

    Yes I know I shouldn't go 72 months, but I am! I'm wanting to keep my monthly payment at $550 with nothing down except my trade/rebates. Anyone?
  • Most dealers in major metro areas are under a preferred pricing agreement where all chevrolets must be sold at preferred pricing. Your paying about 700 too much. Ask your dealer if they are honoring preferred pricing. If not its worth a couple of calls.

  • Theree is a dealer about 200 miles from where I live that seems to have cornered the market on lightly used, off lease or off fleet Traverses. They have about a dozen in stock at any one time. That said, their prices also seem almost too good to be true. For ESAmple, right now they have 5 LTZs in stock all 2012 model year and all with about 28,000 miles, all selling for $29995. Some have the dual moon roof, some have the trailering package, but at any rate these are all $5000-$6000 below KBB. Assuming no accidents, clean Carfax, and no dealer junk fees, what's the catch? This vehicle will be driven only 3000-5000 miles per year so I'll get The next 4 years of powertrain coverage.

    Yeah, I know the dealer. Good Chevrolet. Those are all rental cars that they bought at auction. Appear to all have clean carfaxs..... But I would steer clear of an ex-rental car. They probably bought them in a package deal and even at 30k you could probably still knock a few more grand off that price.
  • Thanks, that's the one and I agree with you except I might be willing to take a chance on an ex-rental because I'm only going to drive the vehicle a few miles per year. Manheim auctions list wholesale price no lower than $27,500 so maybe $28,500 would be a good price?

    They also claim to have all the maintenance records.
