    Anyone know if Ford's (they own Volvo) latest pricing strategy "you pay what employee's pay" pertains to Volvos. Ford announced that they are going to match GM's pricing promotion that was so successful in June. If so, does anyone have first hand dealer feedback on what an '05 Volvo XC70, leather, moon roof can now be purchased for. Thanks.

    misspeppy,

    I too noticed vibration (even when car is in parking mode) on XC70 and V70 2.4 (less than the XC70) but not on V50. They were all brand new. I did not think a brand new car should do this.

    I am with you on your second concern - all cars are negotiable, especially when the car is in later phase of its lifecycle when all new design will come soon. One thing in particular that holds me back from buying a Swedish car is I am not certain if I get the best price, as Volvo/Saab's discount can be so huge at the end of a model year. I know I may not get the exact car I want. But I personally do not feel any color / option is a must. I would check with other dealers so you have something in hand to negotiate with your local dealer. Since your dealer is a monopoly local power, I am not sure they would give in. So you might have to drive to other dealers to get your car if the $ difference matters.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Anyone have any recent buying experience with Stutz Volvo in Salem, MA?

    They seem to be offering low prices ($8,000 below MSRP) for the 2005 XC70.

    They seem like one of the smaller (smallest?) dealers in the Boston area, so I would like to hear any feedback on them - good or bad.

    thanks

    I have a 2004 v70 2.5t Titanium Edition...follows on the heels of an s70 and s80 t-6. The vibration is a common problem at highway speeds (which are now close to 85 mph around here). My sense is it is primarily related to the tire/ wheel combo. While I love the look of the 17"/ 45 series combo, it really isn't ideal for this type of car. NJ/NY roads have taken their toll...2 bent rims and 2 tire bubbles (NOT ON THE RIMS THAT WERE BENT!) on the awful Pirelli P6's.

    Car is great. Deals are great ( stay very close on information regarding Volvo dealer and consumer incentives which change dramatially month to month) Performance and reliability great. ( 2.5t is a torquey devil, much improved over the 2.4t and matches nicely with the 5 spd auto). Stealthy, comfortable, very attractive. Stash $1000 away for inevitable rolling stock problems if you live in northern clime.

    With the 2006 models out, I figured I could get a good deal on a '05, so I contact the one local dealer (San Antonio, TX) and two in the next closest town (Austin, TX). Below is what they are offering. I personally think that they are still asking too much, but would like your input.

    05 V70 2.4 with premium pkg.
    Dealer A - 29075
    Dealer B - 30412
    Dealer C - 29965
    (Note: A&B are owned by the same folks but in different parts of the metro)

    With the 4K manufacturer to dealer incentive, I would think they would be lower. I am wrong?

    dhaliwas, I have also seen these very attractive prices from Stutz Volvo and I believe that they are true to their word. Their web site is pretty transparent. Stutz is a small dealer and the current owner/operator is the son of the founder. The founder really paid attention to his customers and had great service, however his son that now operates the dealership has a poorer reputation in this area. If you're looking to buy a car and have it serviced elsewhere then their prices are to be taken. I'm thinking of doing this myself. Good luck.

    Thanks. I ended up buying the car, and paid exactly the price they showed on their website. I have to say it was an amazingly easy experience.

    I already had done my research, so after checking their website which quoted a $32,420 purchase price for an 2005 XC70 w/ metallic paint, premium, climate, and booster seats ($40,475 MSRP / $38,020 invoice), I called and did the deal over the phone. I FedExed them three personal checks: $32,420 payable to Stutz for the purchase price, $1,707 payable to the Mass RMV for sales tax, title and registration, and $25 payable to their runner who did the insurance & registry leg work. That was it. Next day I went down there, checked over the car, signed the paperwork and drove off within 30 minutes.

    Thanks for the advice on their service department. As far as purchasing goes, I would highly recommend Stutz. The guy I dealt with was very professional, and their price and sales approach was way better than the other dealers around Boston.

    Planning to buy a XC70 within the next few weeks. What are the pros and cons of bi-xenon lights on this model?

    I was offered a XC70 today (metallic paint, satellite radio pre-wire, booster, climate and premium) for 33,675. MSRP was 40,540...this was in Warwick RI. Any idea how to drive the price down a little?
  • Does anyone know what historical manufacture rebates typically are at the end of the model year??
  • Dealer in NC offering 2006 XC70 2.5T
    Silver Mettalic/Leather
    AWD
    Convenience/Premium/Climate/Satt Prep
    MSRP $42,210
    Sale Price $33,250 +TTL

    Seems like an excellent deal on an 06....
  • capalmrcapalmr Posts: 1
    That is an awesome price. I just got a similar price on that car but a 2005 loaner. What is the name of your dealer in NC?

    Thanks.
  • Volvo of the Triad, Winston Salem
  • Is this a factory option only or can it be installed by the dealer?
  • The third row can be either a factory option or dealer installed.

    We just bought a2005 V70 with climate and the preferred(leather) pakage and boosters.

    MSRP = 35,000
    Paid = 28,500

  • Hi,
    We are looking at a 2004 XC70 from a local dealership. Here are the basic details of the car:

    20,000 miles
    Heated leather seats
    Moonroof
    Pre-Certified Warranty

    They are asking $33,000, which is too much, but how much should I reasonably expect to pay for a car like this?
    Thanks,
    Sean

  • Just an update, I bought the car today for $29,500. I think it pays to wait until the end of the month (and quarter)!

  • Putting the paperwork for our order - will make the final decision when we get back from leave in 2wks.

    '06 V70 2.4, 5sp M
    - Leather
    - 3rd Row
    - Boosters
    - Cargo Barrier Net
    - Roof Rails
    - DSTC
    - Climate
    - Bi-Xenon Headlights
    - DVD Nav
    - Self-levelling suspension

    Delivered to NH $32,750

    Best I can estimate from TMV on Edmunds, if I were able to order the same options on a base 2.4, it would run in the $34k range, but most of the options aren't available on the 2.4 usually anyhow (Nav and Bi-Xenon N/A, DSTC only as part of run-flat pkg, which requires Premium pkg). But Mil Sales allows you to build your car pretty much to your preference. We really wanted the 2.4 for the 5spd manual and the slightly better gas mileage.

    Will probably put in the Ipod adaptor myself, unless it arrives with the rumored mid-06 radio head with the 3.5mm aux input plug.
  • The lease on my 2003 XC70 will be up in a couple of months and I've started doing some looking. I have LOVED this car! I prefer to drive a car that is always under warranty so am looking for an '06 XC70 lease.

    I have had some serious sticker shock! I am currently paying $480 @ month plus taxes which brings my monthly lease payment to $525. My lease is for 36 month with 15,000 miles per year. I leased this car in ME and don't know if that is the difference in cost.

    My local dealer tells me that I will have to pay well over $650 a month for a similar '06 XC70. I have and want the premium, convenience, climate pkgs and the booster seats. I'm devastated that my beloved wooden steering wheel is no longer offered on the XC70.

    I cannot understand the huge increase in price as the sticker price is not very different. On my present lease, I paid $2140 at signing plus I put up multiple security deposits in the amount of $5500 (which I would do again). What can I expect to pay in the next couple of months?

    I'm tempted to just buy my car at the end of the lease, but I really prefer to drive a car that is under warranty - fixed income, fixed car cost.

    Does anyone know the money factor and residual value for the 06 v70 2.4 and turbo?
  • hannabhannab Posts: 21
    I am planning on leasing a 2006 XC70 and notice on the Edmunds incetive list that there is a $2500. manufacturer to dealer incentive. The dealer I visited, however, claims this does not apply to a lease, it only applies to a purchase. Is this correct?

    TIA

    A friend bought an XC70 this past Saturday from Stutz in Salem, MA. She did everything right, except for one little detail in the test drive. She didn't think to drive the car to her house and park it inside the garage.

    You guessed it: it doesn't fit through the garage door! Well, it does, with about one inch on each side.

    Has anyone ever "worked with" a dealer to change cars in such a situation? Does it help to write a nice letter to the dealership's owner, asking how close to they can come to limiting her losses, keeping her family's business, and not losing mine?

    Regards,
    Bob

    Since this question is more general in nature, versus specifically about Volvos, you might get more replies if you post here:

    But of course!
    We were so focused on Volvoness, I didn't think clearly.
    Thanks very much.
