Chevrolet Suburban Prices Paid and Buying Experiences



  • rick9194rick9194 Posts: 50
    So ... anybody getting any good deals with the new incentives ... are the deals about the same?
  • We just bought a 2008 tahoe hybrid, 2wd, rear dvd for 40980. This price includes employee discount and 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.
  • I will tell you that I just priced out an 09 tahoe and suburban, the 08's are a great deal with the employee discount and rebates. I still have a temp. tag on my 08 suburban and I believe the msrp will be around 3 grand more with no 5grand rebate. It will be an interesting 09 model year.
  • So a similar equiped 09 is about 3k more than the 08 you just bought?

    Wow ... that sounds pretty good.
  • Is the hybrid offered with 4wd .... whats your mileage around town and on the HWY?

    Are you happy with it ... any downside to a hybrid?
  • Sorry for the late response.
    The hybrid does come in 4wd but we live in KY and don't haul too often. We have been averaging about 21-22mpg. I think you lose 1-2 mpg for 4wd. My wife drives it and she doesn't spend too much time on the hwy.
    The downside to the hybrid is that the second row is a bench ( which folds) but you can't get bucket seats. Also the rear window doesn't open but we are ok with that. So far we are thrilled with tahoe!!!
  • I'm not 100% sure on the exact details, but my parents got a white 2008 4x4 Suburban LS for around $33K out the door including taxes and fees. It had a few options like the convenience package and the upgraded in-dash cd changer stereo.So my guess is around a $42,850MSRP. I think my parents had some rebate from their GM card too. They got it from the Roseville, CA dealership who had to get it from another dealer.

    My dad is selling his 2003 4x4 quadrasteer Chevy 1500HD Silverado to a friend. That thing was a gas pig. No matter highway at 55MPH or 70MPH, it still got around 12MPG! This Suburban should be an improvement.

    With the dilemma that GM is facing and the lot and overflow lot at my local dealer full - I'm wondering what I can get an LTZ 4x4 for? Was thinking about offering $25K :). Heck that gets inventory off the lot, no more interest payments on that car sitting there, gets GM some cash into their balance sheet, etc. etc. Makes sense to me :)

    What kind of deals are people getting out there on these?
  • Let's see , just suppose the MSRP is 56000. for a fully loaded LTZ and you are looking for over 50% reduction,don't believe that is going to work. Maybe able to grab an 2005 though.

    Be sure to check Universal Chev, got a much better deal than any of the real local guys, and extremely pleasant to deal with. Beat the best local by a couple grand on my 2007, if I remember correctly without pulling out all of the paperwork.
  • rshookrshook Posts: 17
    Well, I know I won't get a new LTZ for $25k but that inventory is going to last them a L O N G time. My '00 'burb still pulls our motorcycles and hauls the crew the few times per month that I need all the seats.

    Kiawah: where is Universal?

    Main Street, Wendell.

    Take the new I-540 beltline east,easy to get to. It's like 20 minutes from N. Raleigh/Raleigh. Family run business.

    You can check their inventory online. That's how I found them, they had the LTZ with the color/seats/options I wanted. Drove out with my trade, they checked it out, and we shook hands in about an hour.

    Hey everybody... I'm currently trying to work out a deal for a used 2007 Chevy Suburban Z71. The truck is fully loaded w/ on 21K on it. My question is with all the price drops on new trucks and the predicament that GMC is in, what do you think a reasonable price for this truck is? The dealer was at 34,995, which I thought was ridiculous. He's now down to 32K out the door, but I want more. What do guys/gals think? What's a reasonable price for this truck? I used the Edmunds TMV and stated the price should be a little over 31K.

    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 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.

    As your boys start to grow, you will love a Sub even more than you currently do.

    Has anyone had success obtaining a purchase price under the Invoice if you took the 0% financing? I am getting numbers a little under Inv but most dealers hold to the premise that the cash and rebates cannot be combined. Thanks for your help.

    I took the 0%/60 months last night on a new 09 suburban.

    Price was about 2k below invoice, plus I received the $3,500 lease 2 buy cash rebate that GM is offering for GM and non-GM leasees. The 0% was in lieu of the $2,000 cash rebate (but not the $3,500) so this seemed fair.

    Hello ctdub
    Thanks for the info Did you lease or buy? Could you clarify the deal you received? I understand that you got the price down to 2K below invoice and the 0% financing. What is the $3500 for? That came off the price? I couldn’t find anything about “lease to buy” on the GM site.

    I purchased the 09 suburban. Financed the full amount at 0% over 60 months. The negotiated price was 2K below invoice. On top of that, I received a $3500 rebate that GM is currently offering for current GM and non-GM leasees with leases expiring prior to september 2009. Not sure if this additional $3500 rebate is on the GM website, but if you call a dealer they will tell you it is available.
  • rick9194rick9194 Posts: 50
    Thanks IMO ... The extra rebate was to help out existing leasees

    Anyone else with a recent buying experience?
  • ctdubl07ctdubl07 Posts: 6
    I am getting "supplier" quotes from my local dealer who wants to be aggressive but realizes that I am not going to pull the trigger until the 0% comes back.

    I was bummed to see them discontinue the 0% on the suburban for May. They've kept it on virtually all the other models but I guess they sold enough Suburbans recently to pull back.

    This still surprises me considering their recent posted Q1 loss, the published huge declinein April sales and the impending restructuring. I would think they would continue to try and bring buys for all models into the showroom no matter how well just to keep traffic up and units moving.

    Case in point - Chrysler just annoucned another round of discounts ontop of already steep incentives after they heard from their dealers that the recent news is further keeping people from buying. You'd think GM would want to keep any momentum they have.

    I am hoping the 0% comes back mid-month but if not, I'll wait however long until it does.

    I have been buying suburbans every 6 months for 15 years and this is the first year I won;t have an 09 and instead bought an enclave. Looking at the history gm has not put money on the hood nor has zero percent financing now. They shut down janesville and I believe that there is not that many suburbans in inventory hence the 1000 dollar rebate and no zero percent.

    These are interesting times, 08's are bringing strong money used. Don't look for too many deals.
  • rick9194rick9194 Posts: 50
    Thanks for both replies

    That is interesting. Obviously I don't know how much they "make" gross when they sell a Suburban .... But I would think they would rather sell 10 and make 2k each than sell 1 and make 10K. But I'm sure I'm not as smart as the guys running GM .... after all .... they make millions a year while losing billions a month ... they are definitely smarter than I am.

    I am looking to buy a new LT2/LTZ for an upcoming trip in mid July. The dealers here iowa, are quoting invoice -1k with no financing deal. I remember 10-13K off at this time of year in years past, or 7-8K w/0%. In light of GM's situation, is anyone seeing anything better out there or am I going to have to look at Sequoia? What have people seen out there lately? Thanks for the help!
  • jrg28jrg28 Posts: 1
    We have been looking to buy a Suburban LT2 for the past few months, but the deals just don't seem that good given the fact of the GM situation. Do you think rebates will increase? When is the best time to buy for the best bottom line price? We want leather and middle row buckets, but don't care about all the other options.
  • Any recent purchases? Incentives are good, but I'm finding it hard to get a sense for how much they will deal. Any help would be appreciated?
  • Hi, I'd like to buy 2010 Suburban 1500 LS 2RD, cloths
    i got some quotes from chevy dealer at Dallas Texas
    Lowest quote is $38585+ TTL ( 0% finance rate with 60 month)
    I don't want their cash discount ($3000)
    because if I get a discount, interest rate will be 3.9% for 60 mon
    it will be expensive monthly payment
    how do think my quote? Please share your experience

    We have a 2003 Suburban LT with 97,000 miles on it and just looked at a 2008 LTZ loaded, that has 37,600 and they are asking $37,800 for it. They offered us $9,500 for ours which is low, our car is in great shape and was very well taken care of. Wondering what anyone with knowledge of 08's and mileage thinks of the price. We are hesitant to buy due to mileage and wish the mileage was less, more like 30,000. Thoughts, anyone? Thanks so much
