Chevrolet Tahoe Prices Paid and Buying Experiences

    Where did you see the 8-10k off in Texas? Just curious which dealers are offering that since I am looking right now for an LTZ or LT3.

    Edit - looks like Ray Huffines is having some nice deals. Advertising 7-10k off so you could probably even get a bit more.

    I am curious to see what others are paying for LT3s LTZs with sunroofs, DVD, and Navi.

    Is now the best time or should we wait another month...May?

    After reading this thread, it looks like I should be able to easily get $10-12k off an LTZ that has an MSRP of around $50k.

    I am going to shoot for $38k since gas prices are still rising and most dealerships around here in Dallas have a LOT of Tahoes sitting on the lot.

    I know some people here have bought from dealerships around Texas so please feel free to email me if you know which ones will work with me more than others. I believe one in Grand Prairie will?

  • I'm in Austin, just saw the deals on the Tahoe. Looking to update from 03 LT. I paid 500 over invoice and got 1.9 /60m back in 03. Can I look for the same deal on an 08 getting 10-12K off plus the special finance rate?

    I am looking at a 2008 3lt tahoe which is loaded. It is an executive driven car with 15000 miles. I am looking at an offer of 33500. Is this a good deal.
  • Almost the same thing happened to me. I should have looked it over, but on my contract they added an extra grand for accessories that I never recieved. Also had problems with my trade in and they tried to change the trade in allowance. What a horrible business. I am sad that I ever went there. They try to use intimidation so much than they try to add unknown things on the financing. The finance guy didn't even go over the interest rate with me on the final review, what kind of shady business is this. Please never go to Thorobred Chevrolet. Horrible experience. :mad:

  • I did visit a dealer after my thread. I called the internet department and told them what I needed on my trade and what I'd pay for the Tahoe. The MSRP was ~50,420 and they offered it at 43,711 + TTL. but they low-balled my trade. They were almost 3K under invoice (according to Edmunds) right from the start. But would not budge any more, so I walked.

    I am looking into buying an '07 Tahoe with about 30k miles, I would like some input on what is a good offering price? :confuse:

    Look up online the LOW book value and offer a couple thousand less. SUVs right now are just sitting on dealers lots. And 30K miles is a lot for an '07. Right now I think a dealer would take just about any offer on a high miles SUV.
  • briroganbrirogan Posts: 17
    Thanks! 20k seems reasonable to me. :D I'm in sales so they will not be getting one over on me.

    I just purchased a new Tahoe LTZ. Sticker price $53,270. I paid $40,300.
    I was considering the Sequoia Platinum but I couldn't justify the addtl. cost.
    The Tahoe seemed like a good deal. Good experience with Jim Ellis Chevy in Atlanta.
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 774
    Great price! Was this a clean deal without trade-in?
  • lbt1lbt1 Posts: 4
    Yes, this was a clean purchase without a trade in. It seemed like a good price, but one never knows. I hope it was.

    A reporter with a large newswire would like to speak with consumers who purchased a truck or SUV in the past couple of months and received a good deal as demand was low because of gas prices. If you just purchased a truck or SUV recently, please respond to [email protected] with your daytime contact information no later than Monday, August 25th.
  • Im in Dallas and just got a quote for $38,786 on a black 2008 LTZ with sun/entertainment/DVD package. This price takes into account the recently announced GM employee pricing and the $5k rebate. Seems like a good price given that Edmunds lists this car/package at MSRP of $51,625 and invoice of $46,123. What are others paying these days for LTZ with these options? Wondering how low dealers are willing to go given low sales/high inventories...particularly in TX. Thanks for your help.
  • We just bought a 2008 Tahoe hybrid, 2wd, rear dvd for 40980. This price includes employee pricing, 5k rebate plus additional 1k off . It does not include trade or TTL. The drive to Chandler Chevy in Madison, IN was worth it.
    We feel this is an outstanding deal considering one month ago it may have been 12k more.
  • Since it's been so long for a post to be written in this section, I thought I'd write an update of my own.

    I was able to get an LT3 priced $12k below MSRP here in Las Vegas. MSRP was $47635 and after haggling, I had it down to $35,400. I ended up not going for the Tahoe though.
  • i'm look to purchase a 08 Tahoe LT1. now there is the redtag/rebate going on. so far, the online quotes i received were $6500 rebate off the "below" redtag price of $38,088. the MSRP was at $40,981 with options like Sun Roof, Remote Start, Boss speaker system.

    does anyone have any idea if that is a good buy? am located at southern cali.

  • 4x44x4 Posts: 114
    I dont think its that great of a price..basically the supplier price is 150 over invoice...i have always bought my vehicles for 300 under invoice even when times were i think your dealer is playing the same game as my dealer....acting like its a great deal but if anyone can walk in off the street and get that price then its not that great of a deal
  • Thank you for your advice. I will shop around for more pricings.
  • For those looking for a deal on Tahoes/Suburbans, my recent post on a Yukon Denali might be of help.
  • bad buy.we purchased a 08 LT3 Suburban in late november that had a sticker of $48,885 for $36,994.if anyone is looking for a chevy vehicle near raleigh nc we had a good experience at hendrick chevrolet in cary.
  • Thank you.

    We have 3 small boys, a dog and seem to always have a bunch of gear on trips. We have never been SUV people, always foreign wagons. We rented a Suburban last summer on a trip and I love it. The gas mileage was better than expected, managing the right foot and the cylinder de activation on the highway makes a huge difference.

    Now our lease on our volvo wagon is close to coming to an end. I am thinking Tahoe/Suburban/Yukon XL. What should we truly be paying? Is a 2009 better than a 2008? The 2009 do have the 6 speed, that has to help highway miles.

    Any advice to a SUV rookie would be appreciated.
  • Is it possible to play a movie DVD in the 2005 Tahoe Navigation DVD Player?
  • 73shark73shark Posts: 325
    Not if it's like the NBS nav system. You need to have a separate DVD player to view that content.

    I'm a huge fan of the Tahoe/Yukon/Suburban, but I'd have to save a big pile of money to buy one over an Acadia or Traverse. The A/T are lighter, quicker, roomier, and more efficient than the T/Y/S.

    You didn't say how young your boys are, but if they're still in car seats, then the Tahoe and Yukon could be less than ideal. If you must use all three rows, there is very limited space behind the third row. You can actually fit a jog stroller or suitcases behind the third row of the Acadia and traverse--generally not true of the T/Y. The Suburban will fit everything, but it's still less convenient than the A/T. If you want to haul cargo (like after your weekly Costco, Home Depot, or Ikea run), the rear two rows fold flat in the A/T while you must remove seats from the Sub to use the entire space. Also consider ease of entry to the third row. On the rare(?) occasions you need to tow something, the T/Y/S will drag much more than the A/T, but at a 5200lb tow rating you could still tow smaller boats and trailers.

    2008 vs. 2009: the T/Y/S are pretty sluggish with the 4-speed auto and the 2008 is going to take a BIG depreciation hit. If I were buying one, I'd wait for the prices on 09 models to come down--unless I got a screaming deal on an 08 and then I'd buy the Denali with 6.2L engine and 6 speed (both standard). The biggest difference between the 08 vs 09 Acadia is a switch to direct injection--good for 13 hp.

    My local dealer is offering $15k off any 2008 Yukon with $18k off Denalis. You can probably still do better than that...
  • This site was listed on onther post that may give you some options
  • I am currently in looking at 2009 Tahoes, in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and was hoping someone who recently bought a 2009 Tahoe would share their buying expericence. I have received 4 price quotes from dealers who have made no real effort to aggresively discount a Tahoe.

    Any buying advice would help, because I am becoming increasingly frustrated. After seeing the rebates and incentives for the 2008s, the current ecomonic situation, I was hoping at least one dealer would be willing to offer a substantial discount.

    Historically when do dealers begin reducing prices, in the summer? Thank you in advance for any responses.
  • vinnynyvinnyny Posts: 774
    I'm amazed that Chevy dealers aren't pushing their products harder. GM is near bankruptcy and the dealers will go right down with them. Personally, I'd do whatever it took to sell every SUV on my lot before gas prices spike again...
