  • I am looking at a 2008 LTZ white Tahoe. TMV says $37,300 for this vehicle, but I still think that is high. It has 22,500 miles but is very clean. Anyone looking at any good deals on a vehicle like this one? What price should I expect to get in an environment like the one we're in?


  • I have been looking at a Tahoe after a friend of mine got a good deal last August. She bought a new 2008 LTZ (white) with pretty much everything on you can imagine. MSRP was like $50,250 and they got employee pricing for $38k something. I started looking at a 2009 LT2 with Luxury, Entertainment, Heavy Duty Trailering Packages, and 2nd Row Bucket seats. MSRP has it at $50,585. I was told by some I could get a great deal, probably $15-20K off with the way they need to sell cars. However, I was given the price of $46,354.05 which is the Supplier Price, less the $3,000 in rebates.

    So basically if I would have bought the car at MSRP I would have gotten $3,000 off with the rebates, but if you get the supplier price, you get an extra $1,000. I told the salesman that we were not in the ballpark with what I have seen other people quoted. I told him I was in no hurry, and could wait it out. I live in Tennessee and these Tahoes have been there for quite a while, and I never hardly see anyone when I pass the dealership. Does anyone think Chevy will do employee pricing again anytime soon, or do you think it is possible with what has just come out about GM closing plants this summer, that you could potentially get $15-20K off a '09 Tahoe?

    I would wait. Prices should come down from what you were quoted. Last summer I purchased a black 4wd LTZ fully loaded. The list was $53.270 and I paid $40,300.
    I don't know if that was a great deal, but I think it was a good deal. If those vehicles aren't moving by mid to late summer you should see prices come down.
  • Hey texastiger can you provide your dealership info? I am located in North Texas and am looking for pretty much the same package you purchased. Originally I was looking to buy used but would be willilng to buy new at that price.
    Also - does yours have the 5.3L? That is a must as I will be pulling a boat.
  • I purchased from Frank Parra Chevrolet in Irving. I submitted an offer though their listings on Ebay Motors, and eventually settled on a price with Ken Shouw (sp?) in Internet Sales.Yes mine does have the 5.3L engine, the 4.8L is only available in the LS. If you do a lot of highway driving the 5.3Ls have the Active Fuel Management System which helps. Im 99% sure the 4.8Ls do not have the AFM.
  • Last night I went to the dealership to test drive one and I was told 2nd row buckets are not available on the LT1. This was the first I've heard of that so I tried building a vechile on their website and sure enough 2nd row buckets are only an option on the LT2. I really need to get the price down to $33k and I don't think they will go that low on the LT2.
    I was told by the salesman that a couple weeks ago GM had some coupons out where they could take off up to $2k off the price but they offer has expired. Has anyone else heard anything about this?
    I'll give Frank Parra a shot and see what they can do.
    If not, I did find a certified 2007 LT2 with 35k mi on their used lot. It was pretty much fully loaded except Nav and Rear camera which I don't care about. They have it marked at $31,400. If I could get them down to $29k would that be a good deal?
    I just priced up a new on with the same features and the MSRP is $51,600.
    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Hey ronhere24, thats an awesome deal! I live in houston and am needing a similar deal on an 09' Z71 tahoe. I would be willing to buy out of state and have shipped for that price. Can you give anymore details like the dealer name and location. The best deal I can find here is roughly $7000 off of MSRP. Any help would be greatly appreciated, used priced are way to inflated and prices on new just are not low enough here yet, but then again Texas seemed to be completely invenerable to the recession so far.

    That's a great deal! I would also like to know where this dealership is. I'm in the market for an 09 Tahoe LT2 Z71. The prices I have been given are all in the mid $40s (AR and TX) which I think is still too high. I'd be willing to travel for a better deal.
  • elseis66elseis66 Posts: 2
    ronhere24, please let us know the dealer you got your deal from or at least what state you are in. I am really needing to buy a new car and just cannot get anywhere near that price down here. Thanks

    The supplies now for GM SUVs and trucks are tight due to the GM situation. Dealers are getting sticker in many markets and prices on used SUVs and trucks are also on the rise.

    Thanks for the color rockman - where are you getting this data from? I would have thought it would be a buyers market - with rising gas prices compounding the situation.
  • rockman59rockman59 Posts: 250
    Saw that info on one of the cable news sites....Fox, CNN, whatever, can't remember which one had the story.
  • ou96ou96 Posts: 2
    Has anyone purchased a new 09 LTZ recently <= $40,000? I was told that I would only be able to get a used one at this price but based on the inventory avaliable I'm thinking the prices should be coming down. Does anyone know when the 2010 will be avaliable?
  • 73shark73shark Posts: 325
    My salesman told me that I could order one around mid-July but not sure if Obama Motors will allow SUVs to be built. :(

    please share the dealer/salesman info as I to would love to see if there are any other z71 that are available with that pricing.

  • I can't find any good deals. I'm begining to think there are none. The dealers out here can barely beat the Costco Membership prices.
    MSRP - 47,440.00
    Invoice - 44,248.15
    Costco Membership Pricing - 43,958.65 Out the door tax+ license would be 46,689.00

    Lowest dealer price Ive seen that beats Costco - 43,500.00

    You can add to that either the 2,000 cash back or the 0 % financing.
    Can anyone out there help me find a better deal?
