    Default Deals on new XC70's

    My other thread on "should I" isn't generating much enthusiasm, let's see how this goes. The dealer will sell us a new car, spec'ed exactly how we would order it, for $269 over their invoice. Then take off another $1000 for Volvo loyalty, and it starts to sound like a good deal. I haven't been watching, how has XC70 pricing been? Have they had special deals and offers along the way?

    With the Safe and Secure plan, $500 over invoice seems to be standard and is what we got along with the Loyalty last year. Makes it very attractive to purchase another XC70!
    I haven't heard of anything different.-Dick

    Default Just Bought One

    We just came home with a 2012 and we negotiated right around invoice price. I would imagine that anything within a few hundred of invoice would be good.

    Profit of $500 or less for dealership is very reasonable IMO. If you special order it's possible to negotiate some very good prices for accessories. In my case I was able to get the Blind Assist front camera Port installed for $550 vs. $755 and the Polestar Port installed for $990 vs. $1495. Also many other accessories were very well priced well below retail pricing. The $1,000 Volvo loyalty discount helps as well of course -- but check when this offer expires.

    It is a good time to buy a new XC70.

    $500 (or less) profit for a dealership is a joke and would NEVER keep the doors open. Fortunately for them Volvo kicks them back up to G's on every car (depending on volume) to make it reasonably lucrative. Shoot for invoice. You can get that anywhere unless there's a car shortage.

    Decades ago someone discovered how to obtain the invoice pricing.
    Automobile manufacturers not being stupid corporate entities quickly learned how to deal with that by kickbacks and incentive programs.
    Here is what you know, if the Dealership sells you the vehicle, they are making a profit, if the Dealership won't sell you the vehicle, they woukd not make profit or not enough to sustain operation. That's all you know!-Dick

    I agree.

    I am waiting on an order for a '12 XC70 which I am paying $100 over invoice.
