This was the last 4x4 '01 they had and it had been there for awhile, had a December inspection sticker on it.
We love it so far!
2002 Silver Grand Vitara JLX - 5 Speed with ABS and Floor Mats: $18,500.00 (this is the price for the vehicle only...no tax, registration, documentation fees, etc.)
Saddle Brook, New Jersey.
Its a hamster all right!
For service manual, try Helms for service manuals.
Anyway, I bought my '03 Chevy Tracker (Vitara brother) new when GM had their $3500 rebate in Aug '03. Sales price: $13500
Just before Christmas, I bought a JLX-L, with the low range gearing, using CarCostCanada. It was $x00 over dealer invoice, but with $1300 in rebates from Suzuki. So it was hundreds under dealer invoice. We didn't do a trade-in,and there was no messing around.
Here is the best offer I have received:
GV Luxury 4wd
- msrp $25,194
- net cap cost $21,813
- money factor 0.00182
- no money down, only the first payment at inception
- 36 payments of $356 ($298 depreciation + $60 lease cost)plus state sales tax
- $11,100 buy-out or residual value
- 3 years, 45,000 miles
I believe the deal is based on about a $900 dealer discount and $2,500 in lease incentives from Suzuki
Comments appreciated by any and all.
Could be a good price for xsport.
I just bought a preimum 06' GV for $18000 + TTL out the door.
Had to drive 150 miles to get that deal, the local dealer wouldn't come off MSRP of $23,199. Cost me $20 in gas to save $2200 - not a bad deal, eh? :P
The worst you can do is to be yourself sold before the deal.....dealers can smell that (desperation and anxiety).
It's your money and you have the right to save as much as ou could..
Look at the previous post...local dealer will not move from MSRP and got a huge saving for driving to another dealer....
People normally bit themselves thinking it's the last available car in the world....
Just look at auto trader or others and check for the car you are trying to purchase, that will give you an indication of depreciation and what actually the car can be sold.
A friend just bought a Buick Lacrosse/Allure and told them....This is my final number (includes tax, fees, on the rodad)....you give me that car for that much and you have got a deal....
There was a few days of silence - that is the period where the dealer believes you will break up and come back to review what went wrong - my friend did nothing.
Then he got the call, "it's a deal" and he got the car for $7000 under MSRP.
I wanted to know how much others have been able to negotiate down on the same GV configuration, before any rebates, trade-in and financing.
Yes, I did mean Advantage Suzuki in Schaumburg. It's so close to the border of H.E. that I mistakenly said Hoffman, but you are right. Thanks for the input. They had a few Grand Vitaras on their lot, as well as a few of the new 2007 SX4's.
I'll keep in mind about Fox Valley Suzuki. I know there are some other locations around.
There's still the 1,000 cash rebate. Unfortunately I'm not a current Suzuki owner so I won't get the loyalty one. Care to share how much yours cost when you got it after the rebates?
It sounds like you got a great replacement for your lemon car...
I have a final offer of $18,555 before TT&L for a 2006 Grand Vitara Luxury in Azure Gray with black leather. Sticker is at $24,500, and I do have to take their balloon cash (which I can refinance in three months with my bank) and do a balloon payment at first to get the final ofer.
Is this a fair price?
I am planning to buy the 2007 Grand Vitara and i need to get some feedback from people who own this vehicle.
- How good is the reliability ? Any major issues that owners have face
- How many mpg in city ?
- Is it a worthy investment or better to invest in Honda Crv or Toyota Rav 4 ?
City mpg varies as much as what "city" means. This is not a light car, and unless you get the 2wd version, is always in 4wd. So if you're looking for a fuel miser, this isn't it. The X-Trail may be the best in this regard.
The Grand Vitara holds resale value well. Yes, resale value is not as high as CRV or Rav4, but an equivalent model costs less to begin with. Keep the difference in cost in the bank and make interest on it. Consumer's Guide rated the '07 GV as the best value in the segment.
IF you really need the GV's off-road capabilities, which are the best in this segment except for Chrysler's Liberty and Patriot, then choosing the GV is a no-brainer.
If you don't need those capabilities, then the choice is harder because you pay a price to drag around all that extra metal, put up with stiffer suspension, get less milage due to the weight and full-time AWD, etc.
Styling could well tip the balance also, if you happen to really like or dislike the GV. Or if you want something that's relatively uncommon to see on the road.
I negotiated the price on a 2007 Grand Vitara XSport model for a final price of $23107 with the following options.
1. 0% APR for 60 months
2. 5 year free oil change package
Is this a good deal ? Please let me know friends ! I love the Vitara!
At least in Texas Area, you can get additional $2,500 Ballon Payment "rebate" for going with Suzuk's in-house financing. Most dealers in my area are throwing in $1,000 Suzuki rebate, and about $2,500 in discount before ballonn cash. So you could have up to $6,000 off MSRP even before negotiation. This would make your car about $17,107 before TT&L. All you need to do is when you receive the first paymet coupon, just walk down to your credit union and refinance it-under your own terms. Suzuki balloon payment interest rate is something crazy like 7.9% .By the way, balloon is like a hybrid lease and purchase., and not availabel in all states.
Is this a good deal? Is it possible to re-fi thru my credit union the next day and pay $12390 for the 2008 Grand Vitara like they advertise? I've never seen anything like this before so I know there must be a catch, right? Thanks for any insight.
