    $1071 for a back up camera sounds steep. Taking a loaner should be OK as all the warranty and registration as a new car are part of the deal. You might want to take a look at the tires and ensure that there is plenty of tread left. Other than that, safe + secure can take care of wore brake pads.

    2012 xc60 T6 r design "platimum" package with BLIS and booster and climate package. basically this is everything but the tech package. (the 2012 packages have been re-named) costco pricing is 500 over invoice. this works out to be $48,500. Placed an order and due to arrive in October. the 2012 r design also has a bit more horsepower at 325
  • Couple of thoughts...Our last 'loaner' purchase had an 'in service' date 10 months prior to our purchase. As such, it did not qualify for 'new' classification and the warranty date 'start' was the original in-service date. Not a big deal for us as we smoke the mileage limit long before the warranty period runs out. Make sure the details are clear and the documentation shows the proper 'in-service' date.

    Will the backup camera integrate with the current system? If so, it 'might' be worth over a grand...I agree with mscar54 that it seems high...aren't aftermarket sets just a couple hundred bucks?

    You're now $41K for an 'end of model year' vehicle...that might suggest that you are only 'getting' a couple thousand bucks for wear and tear compared to a 'clearance' 2011 price. If you love the color and packages, could be worth it. If not, I'd shop around for exactly what you want. Would an extra $1K off make you pull the trigger? Doesn't hurt to ask.

    Good luck...great vehicle!!!

    I'm thinking of purchasing a 2012 XC60 T6 R-Design "platimum" package with BLIS, technology and climate packages. I'm also considering doing the OSD (Over Seas Delivery). I believe the total cost to be $50, 710. This also include $550 for Metallic Paint.

    The dealer will have a 2012 T6 R-Design available for test drive sometime between Aug 2-6.

    As I am unable to go visit a dealership prior to placing my overseas order (military, currently deployed), I'd like to solicit some help on the color choice. I'm getting a 2012 XC60 T6, fully loaded. Right now I have chosen seashell metallic and the two tone beige/dark brown interior, and the nordic wood inlay. I'm torn between seashell metallic, cosmic white and just plain black metallic---any suggestions/recommendations out there before I go 'final' on my choice? Thank you!
  • Well, where to start? First, thank you for your service and come back safely!

    We bought the Electric Silver sight-unseen(11th XC60 sold in central Texas, we were told). Very happy with the color; but, it IS another silver CUV in a sea of silver/gray. Also happy with the sandstone interior(our other Volvo is calcite white interior...more on that later). The 'advantage' to the seashell would be 'uniqueness'...haven't seen that one yet. To me, it looks too muddled, tonewise; but, that could just be the computer rendering. I passed a black metallic in the parking lot just yesterday...when the sun hits it, it is gorgeous. Upon closer inspection, the dirt REALLY shows!(Plenty of dust here in central TEXAS, home of record-setting droughts) I think the silver and seashell would 'disguise' the dirt a bit, unlike the darker colors. The white does well here in 'limestone' Texas, but would show the red clay of Georgia more(past residence).

    We've always liked white(our first S40, Lexus RX, first C70, and our newest '11 C70). We traded our '08 C70 in Celestial Blue--beautiful color...a touch more feminine, IMO...for the non-metallic white. Darling Wife actually frowned when she saw it...brings me back to my story...IF I could swap the colors(put the Electric Silver on the 'vert and white on the XC, I think she'd really like that. The white is 'sportier', IMO, and the XC looks good in the white/black trim contrast. As it is, the C70 in white looks much sportier, but not anywhere near as 'pretty' as the blue.(DW was only slightly impressed that the white color 'saved' $500 vs any metallic) Is 'cosmic white' a metallic? If so, there's no $ savings there vs the other standard metallics. 'Ice white' is the only white I'm familiar with on the current line.

    I'm also not sure how the dark brown leather will hold up next to the sandstone. I looked at a C70 'loaner' with cacao leather and after one year in the Texas sun, it was showing some wear, colorwise. The two-tone is certainly sporty; but it may get 'lumped in' with the MINI, FIAT 500, etc crowd as a bit too 'young'. ;)

    So, I would choose white/sandstone first, even though it's about as basic as can be, it's downright elegant in a sporty sort of way. Since you like the seashell, that would be #2 and black a distant thrid(unless you 'promise' to keep it spotless!!!) :shades:

    Adios.

    Just wanted everyone's opinion: I am working on a deal for a
    2012 XC 60 3.2 FWD
    Premier plus
    Convienence package
    Climate Package
    MSRP: $39,800
    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
  • kyfdx@Edmundskyfdx@Edmunds Posts: 25,970
    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?
  • kyfdx@Edmundskyfdx@Edmunds Posts: 25,970
    No doubt..

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

    Good luck!

    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
    PCC
    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. :blush:

    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!
  • I'm trying to figure out if I'm getting a good deal or not on a 2012 xc60. AWD 3.2L Premier with Climate and BLIS. I got a quote of $38,098.
  • $38K for those options are close to the factory invoice price, without the metallic paint option. I would say that's a fair deal.

    So we bought a 2011 xc60 with navigation premium and convenience package, 5 years 60,000 safe and secure.
    MSRP: $41,600
    Invoice: $39,600
    Selling price: $38,655
    2.49% interest.
    Very happy with the deal, since the supply is very limited in South Florida.
  • Hi, We live in CT, and the best quote we have received for a 2012 XC60 with:

    Premium pack.
    Climate package
    Nav prep
    BLIS
    silver metallic paint

    is $39,300 (not including tax, title, etc.)

    Is that a decent price? Thanks for the help.
