    daddyoftwins,

    I was in the same position as you were. I do not care for the leather but need the booster seat. Unformately, you can't order a booster seat without the premium package because they only make booster seat in leather. I ended up order a base 2004 with automatic in March. The car arrived in my dealer last week but again unfortunately, the 2000 incentives run out so we have to pay 2000 more. A base 2004 V70 automatic price is 28754. We cancel the order and get a V70 with premium, climate and booster for 29540.

    An Atlanta dealer offered us a price of 32,400 for 2004 V70 with premium and cold package (before tax and license). Has anyone in the midatlantic or southeast gotten under this price?
  • Daddyoftwins,

    I don't know how old your twins are but you may find there is a reason the boosters only come in leather. We just traded in our last wagon with cloth seats complete with an assortment of ground in food products (our kids were toddlers when we bought the car and for all we tired to keep food out of it sometimes it is just not possible). My first priority was leather because of the ability to clean it with kids. Although the cost gets you up front - it may come back when you sell it in the end sans toddler food.
    Blessing in disguise!

    Can't cloth seats be shampooed, just like for home sofas?

    We just started looking at the XC70. The MSRP on the floor model was $37.5K. Without blinking, the dealer said through the end of the month they were offering about $5k off the MSRP. So, in the end, it should be between $30k-$32k. So, it is either this car or the Sienna.

    Will the trunk of an XC70 fit a real spare tire? I looked in one at a dealer and it looked to me like the doughnut spare that is had was supported by some foam stuff. That could possibly be removed to fit a real spare.

    The thought of going somewhere fun in this car but then getting stuck without a real spare makes me like it a lot less...

    I'd have to carry a spare in the trunk or strap it on the roof.

    I am in the process of bying a XC70. The dealers here seem to tell me that the models they ordered 'all' have the child booster seats. I do not need them. My question is - do they affect the space/aesthetics/confort of the back seat?

    An area dealer is offering a "service loaner" V70
    with 3700 mi on it for $24,995. It is the base 2.4L engine with automatic. Cloth seats, no other options.
    The warranty initiation date was in August 2003, so it loses nearly a year of coverage in addition to the 3700 mi.

    Does this sound like a good deal?
    Should we be concerned about buying a car that has been loaned out to people whose vehicles were being serviced?

    Biggest effect, I would say, is on your bank account! Just tell them you don't need it, you don't want it, and you won't pay for it.
  • Anybody else in the midst of buying a new XC70 and want to compare notes. Currently, I am looking at a new 2004 XC70 - White Color - Premium Package - Touring Package - Booster Seats.

    Currently the dealer is quoting $32,400 (MSRP is 39,240.00)

    Anybody else doing better?

    WOW! Carbuying101, how do you get so much below MSRP? Edmunds shows no incentives for that model...?

    My dealer in Austin Texas is offering $5500 off MSRP on either the V70 or the XC70.
    I'm afraid to pull the trigger so late in the model year w/out the incentives in place.

    We're in the process of negotiating on one as well right now. Getting quoted $6500 off MSRB with just a little haggling. A lot of dealerships up here in the NE seem to have a lot of V70s and XC70s in stock to move before the 05s roll out in 2 months. My guess is you can get them down some more but not sure how inventories are in Texas. The XC90s have cannablized the sales of XC70s according to a sales manager I talked to so the discounting is fairly large.

    We live in Charlotte. Just bought a V70 2.5T navy blue metallic with premium & sport package, child booster, and 3rd row seats.

    Paid $30,960 (not including 3% tax and $325 dealer fees and tags). In addition we get a $1000 rebate from AAA (regional AAA offer for Carolinas).which includes a $1000.00 rebate from AAA.

    Although I have heard conflicting reports, it seems like Volvo is offering about $5000 dealer incentives in the form of a free premium package and additional cash back to the dealer.

    I pulled the trigger this weekend on a V70 2.5T with Premium, Sport, and Child Booster Seat Options. We paid $31,000. (33K or so w/tax, title, and license)

    I couldn't find any info about dealer incentives other than a $1000 rebate available to Volvo Finance customers.

    I just checked carsdirect.com and got quotes that seem to be out of this world. I checked there last month and got some pretty good quotes, but now it's about another $2k lower. I've heard that carsdirect.com usually can't actually find you the cars for such a low price as they quote you, but it's still a good indicator of what's going on with incentives and so on.

    For example, I checked the S60R last month and got a quote for $32900 - today it was under $30k! Same incredible deals on all models except the new S40 and all the XC90. Still, if you've been thinking about buying I don't think it's possible the prices will fall any more than now.

    I'm in the process of buying a house so I'll have to sit this one out, but if that wasn't the case I'd be on my way to Volvo dealer right now to put money down on a V70 2.5T or an XC70. I can't decide between them...
