Volvo XC90 Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • Do you know what the price of the vehicle would have been if you were doing a straight purchase? Also, would you mind sharing with me you lease terms. I too am looking for an XC90 at Ken Garff, but have not been quoted anything near what you're getting. It really does depend on who you talk to, contrary to what the salesman told me. It may have been that I didn't contact Costco first and just went to my local dealership in Salt Lake. Maybe that's why I didn't get as good a deal as you. Anyway any advice greatly appreciated.

    Generally, I am very skeptical of what people say they bought cars for.
    Maybe volvo r bought a service loaner,which has additiional money on it.
    Maybe he did a 4 yr lease,which has different money on it.
    If you are delaing w/ the same dealership, then the numbers are gonna be the same.
    Location doesn't matter.
    Good Luck.
  • Brand new 12 miles on the ODO
    5.5 year lease converting to Purchase nxt month
    Location doesn't matter but an honest sales person & negotiation skills are the key
  • Downtown lost all my business to Southtown when downtown was being stingy with the R incentives last year. Mitch Cameron at Southtown is the go to guy for the deals!
  • Can yo please let me know if this is a good deal.

    Can you please explain the advantage of doing an initial lease for 5.5 years, then converting to a purchase a month later?

    BTW, both Costco and my dealer say the Volvo to dealer cash back on a purchase is $3,100. If it's a new 2007, the Volvo to dealer cash back is $4,000.

    Thanks volvo_r, for all your information, which has been spot on.

    Remember guys, the dealer does't have to give you any of the Volvo to dealer incentive, unless you are in the Costco Plan or the Ford X-Plan. Oh, and salesman sometimes aren't well informed, and some of them will fib.
  • volvomaxvolvomax Posts: 5,274
    That explains it then.
    There is a bigger incentive for doing a bank lease.
    It appears that the bank lease money works with the DVD money.
  • volvomaxvolvomax Posts: 5,274
    the only advantage is to be able to use the additional lease incentive for bank leases.
    However, most leasing co's have penalty clauses built in if you terminate the lease early.
    So, you may end up giving back alot of that intial savings.
  • This is a great thread- I have some help to request- southern california

    I have a 2005 xc90 t6awd- 48000miles- my plan is to sell it or dealer trade for a new xc90 under the costco plan-

    I am going to do a 24month single payment lease-

    what is the best way to do this- what price should the car be capped at?
  • I am also in Socal and in the same situation - 2006 2.5 with 17500 miles on it. I am considering trading in or selling on the side as I have a buyer looking sat. Only way I swap is if I get what i owe (car is worth more than I owe luckily do to invoice pricing on the car purchase) and my payments stay the same. The way I see it, I get a better deal on a new version and get the free dvd system - let me elaborate on that.

    I spoke to Costco and my local dealer and they both stated the Dual DVD system is FREE this month as a promo. Im not sure if the installation is free though. I was also told that on top of the 1000 and 500 from costco, the 3000 marketing support is being pushed by costco onto the dealer to honor the full amount to all costco customers.

    I also have 875 cash rebate on volvos from their safari game from this past spring/summer.

    So to me - walking away with a 2008 with the same packages i had plus a dvd system for the same cost per month is a no brainer.

    On my 2006, i only paid TTL which was 3k. This time around, I may be able to roll the cost into the payment and walk away with zero down.

    Id be interested to know what the lease payment would be on a 36K sales price - 24 months with 15k miles on 2008s.
  • if you get a price tell me- once i get one i will post it. they are being a little stingy on the trade in values because they are not selling well right now- autotrader has mine for around $25k(low to 29K.
  • Ok the clown i spoke with clarified with carman stated.

    If you elect to get the Rear ent package, they give you the following deal:

    - A plan pricing plus 1600 bucks
    - Minus 3100 cash from volvo
    - Minus 1000 cash from costco
    - 500 dollar costco card

    If you elect to not get the rear ent package, your deal is:

    - A plan pricing
    - Minus 2500 cash from volvo
    - Minus 1000 cash from costco
    - 500 dollar costco card

    The second deal is 1000 bucks cheaper - so analyze that over the life of your payments.

    Ok the clown i spoke with clarified with carman stated.

    Dude, that was totally uncalled for.
  • fantomfantom Posts: 211
    Ok the clown i spoke with clarified with carman stated.

    Well, the person you spoke to was exactly correct, so what's your issue?
  • The original person I spoke to gave me the wrong info - As a followup he told me what carman / volvomax stated previously.

    My wording came out wrong previously - my apologies. I was trying to state that what i posted previously was from a bad source.

    My fault on mixing the communications.
  • Actually the person i spoke with the first time was incorrect - he stated the entire package was free - that there wasnt a cost on the deal to do the install.. He came back later and told me the same info that Volvomax eluded to earlier.

    Sorry for the confusion.
  • rocknroll389,

    how did things pan out for you with the Costco deal? where you able to use your brother's info?
  • What is the A plan pricing? Is it the same as the invoice price?
  • Here is what I was quoted from costco:

    xc90 6cyl, AWD, Prem, Vers, Climate and RES w/ standard paint

    $39.5K + $500 gift card.

    That is with all the discounts and incentives. Although others claim to have gotten free DVD, costco and the dealer say it is not possible with the discount. My main concern is $500 extra which the dealer claims is Volvo advertising fee. When I calculate invoice - $1000 -$3000 I get $39k. Does anyone think this is legit and are others being charged that fee? I am in northern va. Thanks.
  • My dealer said no advertising fees so I would challenge that 500 bucks.

    My dealer did quote 895 for acq fee which i felt was high.
  • New to this forum and happy to find so many volvo owners.

    I am on the market of XC90, and the best offer I got from the dealer so far is:

    Climate, Premium, Versatality Packages
    MSRP $44,725.00
    SELLING PRICE $37,650.48
    Taxes $1887.52
    Tag, Title & Reg. $362.00
    Total OTD $39,900.00

    Is this a good deal? Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

    One more question, he did not mention the freight fee in the quote. Does OTD price include that fee?

    Thanks much!
  • Make sure you have included the $2,500 marketing incentive from the factory to the dealer, good through early January 2008. Advertising cost should be around $500, depending on the region you live in. I have owned my new 2008 XC90 for about a month and love it. It is thirsty, even with the 3.2l engine, but the safety is worth it.
  • volvomaxvolvomax Posts: 5,274
    Ask to see the invoice.
    If the charge is on the invoice,its legit.
    the ad charge for the Southwest market is $250, and its printed on the invoice.
    Costco is aware of these charges. The reason it doesn't appear on their car configurator is that the charge varies from region to region.
  • We're trying to go thru with the costco deal but it has not been as straight forward as I thought. We tried to be very specific in terms of options and accessories and all we got quoted were cars currently on the lot. So it's either missing a package or two or wrong color.

    I understand the incentive for the dealer to get rid of what they currently have. But we tend to keep our cars for as long as they run so we don't want to compromise on the features and color if we have to deal with it for the next few years.

    So my question is, how hard it is to get the dealer to say "ok, we don't have what you want, let's try to find it at others or order it." ? How much impact will that have on the price?

  • fantomfantom Posts: 211
    Put exactly what you want in writing and go to the Sales or General Manager. Tell him you are only interested in special ordering the car exactly as you've described. If you get a hard time, walk out. Not a "hard" process, just frustrating, and all part of the game.

    Do a search for the Volvo dealers within, say 100 miles depending on your locale, and fax them all the exact specs you want. After some bluster, my local dealer found out I was serious, and magically became all too willing to do a special order.

    Someone will order it for you, and you need a firm order on record by December 31st to qualify for the fixed price Costco Program.

    Good luck!
  • volvomaxvolvomax Posts: 5,274
    The Costco program won't work on dealer trades.
    You either have to take what is in stock, or order a car.
    The Costco incentive will work on an ordered car.
  • We were told by the dealer that we would have to take delivery by Dec 31 for the Costco deal so we could not order one.

  • fantomfantom Posts: 211's what Costco tells you that counts, not the stealership.

    To quote the program "You can order your XC90 from your neighborhood Volvo dealership and enjoy a custom savings package created for members who want to stay closer to home".

    My ordered XC90 is scheduled to arrive the second week of January, and I got the Costco deal. Many dealerships don't understand the Costco program, and try very hard to discourage special orders.

    Caveat emptor.
  • We've had similar issues as "pharmaz" above, with no car in the area having all the options we want. We were about to settle on a vehicle without some items we wanted, in our 2nd choice color, but the numbers don't seem quite right (compared to what I am seeing on this board). Can someone tell me what the monthly payment should be on this deal:

    MSRP: 47,525
    Cap Cost: 39,188
    Residual: 63%
    MF: .0010
    Sales tax: 6.25%
    24-month lease

    I was quoted $585 as the monthly payment with $767 down (1st month payment plus fees). I was told that this MSRP included the Rear Entertainment System but they would be "giving that money back on the end side" since it is part of the promotion this month. I don't know where that money is coming back because everything listed here is what I was quoted---no refund at signing or anything else mentioned about the entertainment system "refund."

    I was also told that the Costco program is costing this dealer losses of over $2000 on these cars, etc. The ranting against Costco rubbed me wrong and along with other red flags, I opted to "think it over."

    Using calculators online, I am coming up---using these figures---that the monthly payment should be closer to $500. When I originally mentioned this to the salesman, I was told that he didn't know why their figures are higher but that it is a "great deal that you shouldn't pass up."

    I am waiting for my Costco rep to call me back to discuss other possible dealers in the area. Meanwhile, any help will be appreciated. I would like to know if the monthly payment quoted adds up.

  • Sorry if this is a dumb question, but we are really in no rush and have no problem waiting for an ordered XC90 exactly how we want it. Our question is how long does it typically take to arrive? We've heard two this about right?
