Volvo XC90 Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Hi almondjoy,
    It's looks like you're trying to purchase a base model XC90 from the beginning of the model year. Midway through the year, the premium package (leather, moonroof, power passenger seat) and versatility (3rd row seat) became standard but the base price remained the same. For that reason, Volvo put more incentives on the earlier model. Currently, XC90s without a 3rd row seat have a $4000 rebate (the one you're looking at) vs. $1500 for those with 3rd rows. n

    However, it's interesting that you said it has leather but no moonroof because the premium package includes both of these items. Did the dealer install the leather, maybe you should get that clarified. Either way, I went over to (edmunds no longer has the option to build the early model year 09 XC90s) and assumed it DID have the premium package, and also metallic paint.
    MSRP: $39,345 / Invoice: $37,034

    With the $4000 rebate, $29,900 seems like a pretty decent deal especially with Safe and Sound.
  • Thanks rocknroll389.

    No premium package; the dealer DID install the leather. Also, no metallic paint- it's Black stone. Still a good deal?

    I tried before the post to build it on,. and it came up N/A on all counts. I'll head back over to and see what I get.

    Sticker $ is $37,825, same as the newer base models (with premium pkg). We're serious, it's super basic and stripped down. So if the 5 passenger is discontinued, would resale down the road be an issue?

  • Tony I am looking at the the same 4.4L can we talk? I am on the westside and need to get something in the next week. Called costco and have been to both SM and CC volvo. Didn't really care for either one of them much. Only person I spoke to was at the acura in SM, but too bad we're not looking at the MDX.
    Anyhow, Thanks in advace
  • Ok, so invoice on that would be $35,605-$4000 rebate=$31,605
    So basically you're paying $1700 below invoice on the stripped 09. That's a tough call. I know Safe and Sound is a really attractive part of the deal but I think you can do slightly better since it is almost 2010 AND this model is discontinued. Also, since this has been a demo for a week, how many miles are on it? If its less than a couple hundred miles, I'd squeeze for maybe an extra thousand; if there's more miles, go lower.

    All in all, its not a horrible deal but I think you may be able to do a little better since I think you will take a hit on resale.

    mmgoodkitty, would you mind sharing the ML deal? I have been reading about some awesome deals on this forum.

  • Sure Nayan,

    Contact me @
  • I don't think I'm getting a good deal here, and I am a dealaholic. Any help would be great.

    Looking at the Courtesy Vehicle with 7300 miles. Sticker was $40,225.

    It has Climate Pkg, Metallic Paint, Wood Wheel. Also has cross bars but I think the dealer put that on.

    Anywho, the lowest they will go is $33,250. Seems like I can get a brand new one for just a couple thousand more, no? Why isn't there a bigger spread here btwn new and used?? Is this a good price? I want to pull the trigger if they get to $31,000ish. Thanks for any help.
  • You have too many missing variables here, was this two or four wheel drive is it a 2010? when posting be more specific, Was this enrolled in the volvo loaner car program? Big question lot of dollars if it was ! I would price it out on tru car, Take invoice dont forget to add at least 250 for advertising depending on your area of the country, subtract at least $2000.00, that is the hold back from there subtract the current market support of 500, after that subtract 2000 in loaner car support, and if you have costco subtract another 500, this brings the deal down to dealer net net, which any dealer would accept for a car that he had in loaner service for a minimun of four months it is just a complete break even for him, but moves a car that he used to keep his customers happy, a car that deosnt need to generate a profit on, the car generated good will
  • Thanks for your help.

    It is a 2010. 2WD. Lets assume it was a loaner. How do I find out invoice? Will they just tell me (not used to dealing with dealers). Thanks!
  • On the front page of edmunds look for the tru car cost link and punch in the info all the options dont forget metallic paint and the adv fees then follow the deductions I gave you the cross bars are approx 150 but if you dont need them have the dealer remove them
  • I am looking to purchase a 2008 XC90 Green Metallic. It was a corporate lease vehicle and has 20,000 miles on it. V6 AWD w/ third row, leather climate package. The dealer is asking 33,977, I am planning to offer them 30,000 for it. I am trying to figure out what they probaly paid for it at auction to see how much they have in it. I wanna be fair but at 34k i could buy a brand new one for 6k more. The point of buying a used is get rid of some of that depreciation. Anybody have a similar experience or any thoughts?
  • If you can find a new 09, or even a demo 09 you would have a much better deal IMO. The 09 comes with the 08's premium and versatility packages as standard and start at the same MSRP (sticker price on an 08 equipped the same way as an 09 was about $3500 higher). Right now, looking at the incentives ($1000 volvo allowance and $1500 loyalty) and subtracting from invoice, you can pick up a new 09 in the mid $30s. Best thing about the 09s is they include Safe and Sound which retails for $3000 and includes maintenance/warranty/etc which the 08s do not. BTW i no all this cause ive been shopping for a volvo xc90 or xc60 the past few month but we went with the '60.
  • Hard to find a 09, I guess more will be showing up after the first of the year off-lease but I have found some (3) identical xc90's 200 miles away listing for no haggle 30k so that leads me to believe that a dealer can and should be able to do this. 2 of them have the 6yr 100000 mile warranty as well
  • Can someone please help!! I am coming off a lease of a 2008 XC90 AWD with 3rd row, climate, versatility and rear seat entertainment system. I have 17,000 miles on it and a buy back of $31,400. Is that a good buy back?

    I am trying to figure out what to do. Can someone please list all of the incentives on a new XC90 for us?

    I know the Costco program is offering $500 off of employee pricing + $500 Costco gift card
    Manufacturer to Dealer is $500
    Owner Loyalty is $1500

    Are there any other incentives out there for US bank or leasing through a 3rd party bank?

    How to I figure out the employee pricing starting point to see if I am getting a good deal? We are looking for an XC90 with AWD, 3rd row, climate and bluetooth.

    Thank you so much for all of your help. I really really appreciate it.

    volvogirl2 :D
  • Thanks for your help. I couldn't follow some of the lingo and come up with an invoice price either.

    I offered them $30.5k just now. We'll see if they bite. I'm not willing to go up much more, if anything at all. I think that is a fair price for a car that is stickered at $40k with 7k miles on it...and has been in loaner service since June.
  • Just got back from the dealership, Bought a 08 blue xc90 3rd row premium package climate package certified with 30,000 mi (6yr 100k warranty added 1500) fresh from the auction they hadn't even gone over it yet. paid 31000+ttl. Not sure it was a great deal but they wouldn't go any lower. original sticker was 45k. so basically i got a car with 30k miles that is not hurt for about 10k less than a new one , Dealer is gonna fix a couple of scratches, all new brakes, all new tires, and perform a complete service , we pick up Friday. I went to 3 different dealerships with money in hand in virginia and this was the best deal i could get on identical vehicles. they must be paying 26-28k or so at auction.
  • give me the exact equiptment and I will price it out for you including if it is metallic paint
  • volvogirl, you may be very dissapointed with the new lease programs, when is current lease up? who is it leased thru? current payments, What equipment?
    I will give you some suggestions by the end of day along with current values? Your location? ( ex. Albany NY) this sometimes comes into play not looking for anything exact
  • Thanks hollywood53!

    Lease is through VCF. I live on Long Island. Current payments on 2008 XC90 AWD, 3rd row, climate, versatility and rear seat entertainment system is $430 per month. Buy back is $31,400 + taxes. It currently has less than 18,000 miles on it. Lease is up by the end of the month, but I can extend it through VCF for 2 extra months.

    I am trying to figure out whether I should buy my 2008 back or lease/buy a new 2010 XC90 similarly equipped (minus rear seat entertainment system). MSRP of new vehicle would be $42,350. What would the invoice be? Then if I minus the current incentives of $2500 - where would I be? What would be a good deal on this car? And with the new leasing deals, residuals are very low (something like less that $16,000 buy back after 48 months) - does it make sense to lease and then buy after 48 months?

    Thank you for your help with this!!
  • Volvogirl

    I am assuming it is 6 cyl, I am retired GM from volvo,the programs are horrendous, I just turned in two cars and after 35 years this is the first time there will not be a Volvo in my driveway.

    I would definetly extend the lease for the 2 months contact me, some things I just cant post in a public forum somethingnew53 yahoo

    here is a copy of what I posted in the Honda pilot forum

    No I do not charge a fee, sometimes you just have to give back and be thankful for what you have. I do this for local people that need some help or dont like the whole process, and in todays economic times if I can save people a couple of dollars a month it is reward enough. I am not looking to help those whos only interest is to beat a dealer over the head but to help those that need to be educated about there deal.

    I have helped numerous people on the volvo xc90 and xc 60 boards already as to availabilty and programs, have provided MF, residuals, rebates and incentives etc.

    Coming from an industry that sometimes doesnt have the best reputaion there are dealers that do business the right way and those that take advantage of people.

    If I see someone posting a deal that I feel is not equitable, I will let them know and try to help, keep in mind that like everything else in life it must be balanced. Deals can tilt both ways sometimes a little to the dealer sometimes a little to the consumer and that is OK but it should never be totally tilted in either direction, if they all tilted in the consumers benefit than someday that dealer may not be there to provide service.
