    Thanks for the report. Did you have to buy special winter tires? I hear they have a law requiring winter tires on cars driven there during the winter. We just finished planning our trip and it has us driving almost 4,000 miles in 33 days down to Barcelona, over to Venice and up. I'm a little nervous about leaving the new car parked in some of these towns but I imagine the Europeans do it all the time.
  • Is the $40,467 out the door price or the price before taxes, title and processing fee?
  • It didn't include tax and registration. Dealer waived the processing fee. OSD price is about 8% off MRSP, apprx $300 over the dealer offer at that time. But if you want the trip, it is a big discount.
  • I learnd the law but on one mentioned this in delievery center. About 4 hours going south from Gothenburg you will be in Copenhagen where is about 10 F warmer tham Gothenburg.

    Enjoy your trip.
  • Did you get a Volvo discount of $1000 (If you own a volvo)

    We wanted to do overseas but there was a 1832 different between buying it vs OSD.

    Getting locally was 40,500 plus $500 costco card so really 40,000
    The overseas was

    Tourist XC60 T6 AWD $36480
    Climate $1000
    Convience $1200
    PCC $550
    Total $39230
    Taxes (6%): $2353.8
    Title and Registration: $300
    Grand Total for OSD is $41,883.8

    So a difference of $1,883.80

    If Overseas accepted the $1000 volvo discount it would have cut it down to $883 which have made the choice harder for me.
  • I didn't own a volvo. Costco discount wasn't available at the time I ordered the car. So OSD was really a good deal to me. I dont think you can use $1,000 credit as volvo owner but you should check with the dealer.
  • I guess I just got lucky when I found my XC60.. It had just been traded out from another dealership and arrived the same day I called about their inventory.

    2011 3.2 FWD
    Premium, Convenience, Climate, Multimedia, BLIS, PCC, Front/Rear skid plates, Side Scuff plates
    $39,675

    I've owned BMW and Infiniti vehicles before this,...Let me tell you.. I LOVE this VOLVO. LOVE LOVE LOVE

    Hi guys,
    How was the final buying experience? Would you mind sharing? My local Volvo dealer insists invoice price... I am wondering if it is worth 2 hours trip to LA...
  • juxtajuxta Posts: 44
    Mine finally came! So far, so good. I'm still testing everything out and getting used my new toy. Wooo!

    Just to sum up my buying experience. The dealer offered me $300 over invoice on the spot but he mentioned the Costco discount so I renewed my Costco membership to get $500 under invoice. But this discount is countered by a $500 advertising fee which is supposed to be common for all dealerships in the DC area (my dealership is in Alexandria, VA). So with the Costco discount I paid right at invoice.

    I ordered my XC60 on Dec 17th and it was ready for me to pick up on Feb 24th. The wait sucked.

    Total invoice was $45,995:
    (nadaguides.com has an accurate listing of invoice prices)

    2011 XC60 T6- $36,096
    Saville Grey / Black interior- 517
    Multimedia Pkg- 2538
    Technology Pkg- 1974
    Convenience Pkg- 1128
    Climate Pkg- 940
    BLIS- 658
    PCC- 517
    Xenon- 752

    At F&I I was offered but declined: Lojack ~$1000 (do you need this when the vehicle has an ignition immobilizer?), 7-year paint sealant and interior treatment ~$690 (didn't believe it would work - I'll just wax and clean as necessary), tire & rim warranty ~$750 (likely damage would be from an accident and covered by my auto insurance), 4-year dent protection ~$700 (I'll just get dents/dings repaired as needed by a paintless dent repair guy), and maybe one other thing.

    I did buy a 10-year, 105K warranty for $3350 to cover the electronics and help the resale of this vehicle (I'll probably sell at year 7 so I can hopefully get a full-electric mid-size SUV).

    So my total vehicle cost was:
    Invoice- $45,995
    Titling tax- 96
    Dealer Business Lic. tax- 78.84
    Sales tax (MD)- 2072.19
    License fee- 180
    Dealer Processing fee- 379

    = $49,601.03 + $3350 (warranty) = $52,951.03. (Doh!)

    The front blind view camera is not included in the Multimedia package, so I'm waiting for a price for the dealer to install that. Has anyone had this installed yet? I don't know why Volvo doesn't make that an option for the US. It's an option for UK buyers.
  • After an 8 week waiting period from the time I ordered my XC60 to the time it arrived here in New Orleans, the final process was very simple.

    The dealer and I had already agreed to a final price when I ordered the car. I got:
    2011 XC60 3.2 FWD with Sensus (Ordered after Nov 2010)
    Black Stone/Sandstone Beige
    Multimedia Package
    Premium Package
    MSRP: $38,475
    Invoice: $36,219
    My Price after Volvo Owner Loyalty Cash: $35,969

    My Final agreed-to price was $35,969. That includes $1000 of Volvo Owner Loyalty cash. When I placed the order, I had to put down $2000.

    So when the car came in, the amount owed was $33,969 less $8000 for my S40 trade-in plus TTL.

    The whole paperwork process at the dealership took about 30 minutes or so. Super-fast and very easy to do.

    Car Man- Do you know if there are any incentives on the XC60 for March? I thought the 2.9% financing for 60 months and the $1000 loyalty bonus were still in effect, but not sure if something else has come along. Thanks!

    Could any 2011 xc60-T6 owner tell me what is the background color in the instructional pannel?

    I realize when I tested drive, I saw a blue background, the color just like the blue volvo logo. I know the Redesign shows blue but not sure if the T6 should also be blue. My car only shows bright white over dark.

    Thanks

    Mine is white lettering over a black background. It would have been nice to have a blue background in the T6 but oh well.

    Volvo is putting too many of the nice touches only in the R-design. I didn't order the R-design though because of the tires and the suspension (and there's a bit too much chrome). I really wanted the smoother ride of the regular T6 so it was a trade-off for me.
  • well i'm in the northeast and can't find the car i'm looking for at all. so i may need to order it.
    anyone have any inside info on upcoming promos? i missed out on the costco deal and i don't have any loyalty. lol. so i don't know if i should bite the bullet and order one this weekend or wait for the next promo.
    fyi, looking for a basic 3.2l/moonroof in all black.
  • The Japan situation has impacted all manufacturers, including Volvo. Don't count on any incentives due to the supply crunch.
  • jssnowjssnow Posts: 1
    I ordered an awd xc60 on march 3 and have been informed the car will be available at the end of May- a full 12 weeks after the order was placed! The sales manager said the wait times have become so long b/c many xc60s are being diverted to China. He said they only had 3 units delivered to them last month. Has anyone else had this problem or heard of this issue?
    Thank you
  • Sales Manager is right about increased length of time, but wrong about reason. Japanese companies manufacture 10% of the Volvo's parts. The earthquake/tsunami/meltdown has disrupted the supply chain.
  • Howdy y'all! I have a 2010 XC60, so I've followed this thread for some time. My question is about the C70(VERY little action on the C70 threads!). Do we know when the 2012 model year intro will be for the C70? Our 2010 XC60 came out in March '09 ; but the current offerings of C70 are 2011. Any thoughts on the time frame for the new 2012 designation? The XC60 seems to have 'jumbled' the model year 'assignments'.
    Host and mods, please pardon the interruption; but there really was no appropriate thread in the C70 forum AND it's the XC60 that has 'set the bar' for model year confusion. :)
  • juxtajuxta Posts: 44
    It seems people are already reserving 2012s for overseas delivery.
    http://www.facebook.com/VolvoOverseasDelivery?v=wall&viewas=0

    Maybe in another month they'll have the 2012s on the website because Volvo just did a press release about some new 2012 upgrades.

  • juxta, Thanks for those links! Still can't get a firm handle on the switch-over date. We're considering trading our '08 C70 for the 2011 but would expect a better 'deal' if the 2012s were just around the bend. We were just remarking on a drive last night about how much we enjoy the C70; but that Safe and Sound and 1.9% financing have us considering the new model. What to do...what to do??? :confuse:

    Hi,

    I've been looking for buying a XC60 for a few months (my lease car will reach milage in 2 1/2 months). Went to two local dealers--one has only one on the lot (10 coming but a few were ordered/sold), the other only has 5 xc60. I want a flamenco red or blue, but none is available.

    Here is the best offer I got:
    2011 xc60 3.2 AWD with Sensus, Base price $32400
    Gray metalic paint
    Premium package
    Climate package with Xenon headlight
    PCC
    PreNAV
    ------------------Total MRSP: $40,770.
    ------------------Sale price: $37,550 + tile, tax, etc. if buy before 4/30/11.

    They agree to buy out my lease ($14200) as trade-in, these suppose save me $960 sale tax.

    Is this a good deal? or I should keep looking? I am concerned there are a shortage for 2011 xc60, given the factory is be modified for produce 2012 model. They can't even take 2012 orders, and it is probably too late for me any way.

    Any thoughts?

    JC
  • does your price already take into account $1000 loyalty?
  • jc12171jc12171 Posts: 13
    No. Never owned a Volvo. My lease is a 2008 Altima.
  • the amex zag price for the options you mentioned is $38,895. so sounds like a great deal to me.

    Been researching new vehicles since the start of the year and today finally pulled the trigger on a 2011 XC60 3.2 AWD in Black Stone - Dealer Link of Vehicle

    included Premium, Climate and Convenience Packages with Xenon HIDs and BLIS.

    Got it for $39.5 with them adding mud flaps and running boards(expensive and require 3.3 hours to install). I don't go back til tomorrow to sign the papers and pick it up on Monday.

    I was originally looking for a 3.2 R-Design but then decided for a T6 in Barents Blue or Electric Silver with PCC and Rear Parking Assist instead of the Convenience Package. Unfortunately, nothing with those options are available anywhere. All T6s with Xenon HIDs have the multimedia package at a minimum.

    So, my only option outside of buying this vehicle that almost has everything I want is to order a 2012 and wait til July at the earliest and possibly not delivered til Aug/Sept.

    Decided to pull the trigger today due to issues with my current vehicle which I don't want to put any more money into and wondering if I should be happy with my purchase or make a custom order and wait months.

    What would you do? Sorry for the lengthy post.

    Hi, guys:

    Thanks for the replys I got for my previous post on 4/26.

    I enventually changed to a T6 AWD from 3.2 L since I find sandstone interior in 3.2 is a little too ligth. T6 has poor fuel economy but for my next job the company will pay our gas. I picked the car up yesterday.

    Following is the details:

    XC60 T6 AWD, silver exterior and darkgray interior, Primium, Climate, PCC, Metalic paint, backseat installed carseat, preNAV, 5yr /60000mile free service.
    MRSP: 41,470
    Sale price: 37,713
    Doc Fee: 250
    title: 33.5
    tax: 1599.6 (6.75% on 23,687 after they buy of my lease for 14,236)
    Out of door price: 39,596

    I paid 10,000 down payment and got their financing for the rest balance at 2.95% 60 mon at 531/mon.

    Have been driving it for 110miles, feeling great--the T6 engine is smooth! Got 22.8 avarage MPG with 75% freeway 25% local driving.

    JC,
    Call me spoiled, but I wouldn't want to give up my T6. ;) This engine will scoot! We've had ours for two years and one month, 36K miles. Avg mileage is 20.5, best I can figure. Hwy mileage is about 22...balanced by some spirited acceleration between stoplights on our 65mph highways around Austin. :D
    We just got the 1.9% deal on a 2011 C70, trading in our '08 C70. Paying off the 3.99% loan on the XC60 and rolling it into the C70 Volvo loan. Easy peasy.

    That interior might get a bit warm, depending on your location. Our Electric Silver/Sandstone combo isn't too bad; but, the moonroof and windshield will let in A LOT of radiant warmth! Glad to have the 'privacy' windows in the back...too bad our new C70 doesn't have them.

    Enjoy the ride! Congrats!

    Hey. Can you tell me which dealer you used. trouble finding one to match that deal. thanx!
  • jc12171jc12171 Posts: 13
    The dealer is MAG Volvo of Dublin (in Columbus, OH). you can google for their contact info.

    I just finished the tank come with the car...399 miles and fill the tank with 16.0 gallon of gas, so the gas milage is 399/16=24.6 MPG, while the computer on the car showing 22.9 MPG so far. This is with 85% highway driving around 70 miles per hour.

    I think their 22 MPG highway milage is too concervative ( I think it is likely you will get 25-26 MPG if you drive all highway at 60 mph).
