    I'm purchasing an Acadia soon and have solid offers from two local dealers.
    2011 SLT1 Metallic black w/Ebony interior w/Sunroof. MSRP 40,570. Initially when I talked with them I could only get them to 38,306. I wasn't happy about the price so I started searching on how to get the best deal. Low and behold, I found a site and started a price war btwn the dealers. This will work with all dealers and not just with GMC. You have to follow the rules exactly as it reads. I have a solid deal for 36,800 out the door priced.. tax, tags and title...

  • I'm in MD, got a quote & wondering if it's a good deal.

    $44500 w/ 0%, 60 mos financing (w/o financing another $2000 less).

    SLT-1 w/ dual moonroof, NAV/rear DVD, trailer.

    Thoughts?

    Hi - We are in Carmel, indiana and are looking at a 2011 FWD SLT1 Acadia - black with navigation, dvd and towing package. We have never leased - but are interested in it. The dealer quotes us $42638 (for supplier pricing / costco pricing (were within $30 of each other). We have a 2005 Honda Odyssey for trade-in that they said they would give us $10,000 for. Now the leasing part is where i get confused - here is what they offered us:
    if we put the $10K down (not sure if this is a good idea or not) - it would be a payment of $398/month - (39 month lease - 15k miles/yr - 3.45% APR and residual of 46%) They also said we could do a 36 month lease at the same apr of 3.45% for $400 / month with a 48% residual.
    or - if we wanted to keep $8000 from the trade-in - we could do a 39 month lease for $640/month with residual 46% or 36 month for $660 month - 48% residual.
    They also said we might want to consider a shorter term lease of 24 months - if we put all $10000 down could pay $385/month (APR 1.15% with 54% residual) or take $8000 back and pay $760 / month. They said all of these options include a $2500 rebate and the 1st payment is made. Please let me know your thoughts as this is our first experience with leasing and is rather confusing!
    Thanks!

    Hi All...
    In NJ and comparing a quote from 1 dealer...It's for a SLT1 AWD Acadia Summit White, Ebony Interior. Dual Sunroof, DVD Entertainment in the back, 7 passenger.
    MSRP IS $45,595, INVOICE IS $43,022.56 LESS $501. = $42,521.56 LESS REBATES
    They said I qualify for 0% financing with my credit of 739. I have not told them that I intend to trade in my 2009 Mazda CX7. I was told to do this after we have agreed upon a price.

    Also, 1 more question: When a dealer adds options, I noticed there is an MSRP for the Option as well as the Invoice price. I assume, I should be expecting to get the invoice price of them correct?

    Thanks so much
  • Use the features of this site. According to them you should be targeting a price of 41 before rebates. Also use the request quote from dealer option. and start working them against each other. I'm not sure about the strategy of getting the trade value after your price is established. Is that what the dealer says if so I'd question that. You should have a good price already in mind of what that should be by using the used car features here. I'd look to have the trade factored into your overall deal as you negotiate. That's one more variable they can tinker with to get your payments down by increasing the trade value without impacting the price of the car. I bought a similar car with Nav if you look just above your post last week. But overall, I'd say use all the features of this site.

    The idea of a lease is not to put anything down.... you do not own the vehicle. You would be better off selling your other car and keeping the cash in the bank in case you decide to buy a car in a few years. Realize that if you lease R you getting any write offs off on your taxes. After 2-3 years you give the car back, you have nothing. Be aware leasing is not for every one! If in 2-3 years you have nothing to put down so you start from scratch. If you can afford it, borrow the money from your self and you be the leasing company, you would be better off. This way it is 0% and no rent charge.

    Signed contract yesterday for a new 2011 Denali, White Diamond Tricoat/Cashmere with NAV and second row console. I added $150 for dark tinting front windows (legal in TX). MSRP is $46,980 and Inv is $45,401. Negotiated a final price of $42,900 (before adding $150 for window tinting). Edmunds TMV is $45,325, so I think I got a good deal. Any comments? I am putting down $3,000.
    1. Dealer financing form calculates the 6.25% sales tax on the selling price BEFORE down payment deducted. Shouldnt they deduct the $3K down pmt BEFORE calculating tax?
    2. Dealer added "Dealer Inventory Tax" of $80.51. Is that Kosher?
    3. Dealer also added $125 for document fee. I understand that this number is negotiable. Any comments on what be a fair number. I had heard that anything over $100 is high.

    1) In Texas you pay tax on the price of the car... doesn't matter how much is down..

    2) The inventory tax is a dealer tax, but virtually every dealer in Texas passes it on to the consumer

    3) Document fees used to be restricted by law in Texas, but no longer... so, they might be all over the map..

    2) and 3).. Total $200... You'd have an easier time trying to negotiate your deal down by another $200 than focusing on these two fees... All that matters is the total cost, in the end.

    I don't know where you live but you need to consider Fitzmall in MD. As for your second car request, their website has a 2011 GMC Acadia; Internet Price: $38,650.00 MSRP: $44,330.00
    Style: AWD 4dr SLT1

    Obviously their deal is way better than whatever you're getting where you are. Understood that this course of action isn't for everyone but I would do it if i could save over $4K on a must have car.
  • Thanks for the suggestion, but I was already at Fitz and that price is not really cheaper than what I have from the other deal. The Fitz dealer explained to me that the sales price for that vehicle includes a $1,000 GM loyalty discount (which is available at any dealer, but which I am not eligible for) and a $2,000 cash back rebate (which is also available at any dealer, including the one I am working with, but which I will probably decline in favor of 0% financing. The Fitz price also doesn't include the fees I identified in my post, and there would be similar fees at Fitz.

    So the Fitz price is not really lower than what I currently have offered from the other dealer, and is probably a little higher. From everything I can tell, the current offer I have is just $200 over invoice for this vehicle - the only issue is the reasonableness of the LMR and advertising fees being charged, though my research indicates that it is very difficult to negotiate much on these.

    Thanks again.
  • Here's what I got from the dealer:

    2011 GMC Acadia SL (they would put in leather seats with heated fronts)
    MSRP $33,340
    actual $32,289.65 GM supplier discount (not much - didn't sound right)
    w/ leather $34,177.15
    downpmt $3K
    TTL $3,187.40 (est.)
    0% 60-month finance (not leasing, i want to buy)

    Total monthly = $569.57

    This is their first offer which I never take. I left and I discussed wiggle room, etc. I think they would come back with $560/month, included leather seats, but then put in gap insurance (which for this car seems to have value in buying) which potentially puts me back at $570/month

    Deal or no deal? That GM supplier discount sounds low to me but I checked it out and sure enough it was accurate.

    2011 Acadia S with 9611 miles on it for 25,995 + TTL at Brown Buick GMC Subaru in Amarillo TX.

    If you live in the area I highly recommend this dealership. They were so easy to deal with that I bought the car on my lunch break.

    Purchased 2011 Acadia SLT1 AWD with sunroof, tow pkg, metallic black, msrp 43290, dealer took 5500 off msrp and i used a 1000 rebate that was distributed by gm for a total of 6500 off msrp. I am happy with the deal.
  • Hi everyone,

    Just visited my local GMC dealership and test drove an SLT1. Very nice car.

    Here is what they quoted me:

    40,995 MSRP - dropped to 39,388 and then another 1,700 off if I lease it.

    39 month lease, 12k miles, 3,139 down = 439/month or just first month and DMV down for $509 month.

    Good deal? I've never leased before, so just trying to figure this all out.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ed

    Ed,

    You should be able to get at least 4,000 off MSRP. GMC is offering 2250 discount plus the dealer should be willing to go to invoice.
