What do you guys think is a better deal? Can I do Better? :confuse:
You seem very unhappy about this interest rate. So SHOP the rate, why is that so hard to do? My credit union is more that a point below the rate you quoted. Take the price and shop the rate. If you're getting such great out the door quotes, I don't understand the problem - other than the interest rate, which we have established you DON'T HAVE TO TAKE.

The Saturn was a little less $$ than the Acadia or Enclave with the same equipment.
I'm looking at pretty much everything except DVD and the sunroof. I'm going to have DVD installed in the headrests and I don't want the sunroof (don't like the execution of the lambda sunroof - it looks and feels cheap to me).
Have you noticed a difference in the amount of dust that accumulates in your Outlook? I know these units don't have cabin filters in any real sense and I have a son with allergies.
Of course, when you and the dealer are talking that is what they will say. If you get out the pen, checkbook and offer to sign the sales contract and a check, then you will know if they are serious or bluffing :-)
The one thing about this and it may be a recent GM thing since my wife's '04 Envoy does the same thing. I like to keep the recirculate button on at least during warm weather since that seems to boost the cooling power and I tell my wife to do it since it could reduce dust and pollen coming in and might help her allergies. On the Outlook and her Envoy you have to turn that on just about every time since it seems to default to OFF when you power off.
what a stupid move by GM/Buick
i looked at the chevy and saturn equivalents, and boy is there a big difference to build and fit/finish quality as compared to the enclave
The fit and finish is very good on these, I agree. I just wish there was a way for GM to eliminate the quality problems (these seem epedemic with domestics) they have had. I tried leasing an 05 Higlander recently and have had NO issues whatsoever. On any of the domestic autos I have owned there has always been something. I wish it weren't so. It would hesitate less in going to another domestic brand without this in the back of my mind.
Well, went to the GMC.COM page and Acadia has the same $2500 cash back. I went and searched inventory and did NOT find the selling price displayed as when I bought an Outlook under the Employee Pricing, $1500 rebate in August. So, this offer looks to be 0% or $2500 rebate, but without the EP already calculated.
On trade however they are offering $27K for something that was $46k new and it only has 19k miles. If that's how well domestics hold there value I'm done.
!). Own 2 SUV's and don't need more than 1.
2). A teenage driver that should have something smaller to learn on.
3). Prefer the other SUV to the Enclave.
with gas pricing coming down... it might be easier for you to sell on the open/private seller market.
did u try carmax... they'll give (typically) a better price than the $tealerships!!
I've been searching high and low ever since and it looks like that price will be tough to match for that mileage and all the options it had. However, I have found a few similar ones for $35,000.
I ended up going with a pretty much basically equiped CXL with 16K miles on it. Got it from a private party for $25,000. Picking it up tomorrow!
Negotiated Price: $43,344 plus tax, tag, title
0% Financing for 5 years
Negotiated Price was $200 over Employee Pricing plus $395 doc fee. They were not willing to budge on the doc fee but I felt I had a good deal anyway. Also threw in a set of all weather mats. Another dealer was willing to sell at Employee Pricing but didn't have the color I wanted. Some of the other dealers were not willing to go below Supplier Pricing so it definitely pays to shop around.
(Note the supplier offer was: $41,046 (Invoice) + $443 (1% of MSRP) = $ 41,409.)
Question 1: Should I not mention the availability of GM Supplier Pricing to see if I can get closer/below invoice?
Question 2: In addition to the 0% financing, they also offered $2000 rebate because I am ending a lease on another (non-GM) vehicle I have.. I have not heard of this incentive . anyone else.
Thanks in advance.
2. That is the current offer, which I hope is still around when mine is delivered. The zero percent by itself is a pretty good deal but with the cash that is great.
However, after trying to work with two different dealers I am seriously losing interest. The first dealer was trying to negotiate UP from supplier pricing that I am eligible for (mainly by trying to get MSRP on the HTR package - $1300 for that is NOT invoice). I am not going for the incentives as I want the 0%/60 deal.
After much research on this and other boards, I put the numbers together that were exactly half-way between Employee and Supplier pricing which was provided to me by dealer #1. I have seen others get LESS than this price even when combined with the 0% offer.
I provided this refined offer to a second dealer and after 24 hours they flat out said no way and good luck.
Just for info, the vehicle I want is at another dealers lot in the state and would have to be transferred. The vehicle has every option except the console and it is a CXL FWD - dual headrest dvd's are already installed. Dealer #1 salesperson even said that the loaded vehicles are harder to get rid of!
I have given two options to dealer #2 - one with no trade-in and just money down (this amounted to using Employee Pricing) and the other option with my trade for which I have a CarMax appraisal and that dealer #1 said they would meet (this amounted to $1000 over Employee and $1000 under Suppler).
Any thoughts on if this is why I am having difficulty? Should I just give up and find another car I like?

I just got a call from them independently & starting quote seemed pretty good...did you manage to negotiate them down or were they pretty firm?
For what it's worth, I was offered invoice minus $1000 (of their $1121 holdback). With 0% financing, the $1500 lease to buy cash, and $1000 from the GM card (I've got $8200 in credits---but with limitations), I was at $37,200 +tax/tag. Is this a competitive offer???? Please advise.
Also considering an Acura MDX, but prefer 2nd row captain chairs. But, they seem to be a bit more expensive and with the interest expense the Buick is still appealing
Thanks in advance for your feedback.
The supplier price was $42092 - $2500 cash back...a $640 credit for the miles, and a ....finally less $1500 for the dealer hold back.
Forget about what you could have had and enjoy your ride. If you are anything like me, you are going to thoughly appreciate the Enclave.
The vehicle looks brand new, however, the dealer indicated that the unit is a GM Buy Back vehicle....he comments regarding the buyback were:
The buyback resaon for this Enclave is "Transmission shift calibration was not to customer's expectations." There is not an issue with the transmission, the customer just didn't like the calibration of the transmission.
He also went on to say that the remainder of the 48K bumper to bumper warranty was still in tact, along with the remaining drivetrain warranty.
Has anyone ever purchased a GM BUYBACK vehicle??
Does the GMS pricing apply to these Buyback vehicles?
Thanks in advance.
