depends on location, I'm in DC suburbs in Northern Virgina and there are plenty of 2011s unlike the 2010, I got my LTZ for $1801 UNDER MSRP, not over.
Thanks. As I stated, I am in Wisconsin. FYI $24,500 is $1,000 under the MSRP of $25,500. Not over. The numbers and math I quoted in my post expressed invoice/dealer cost, not MSRP.georgi55 said:depends on location, I'm in DC suburbs in Northern Virgina and there are plenty of 2011s unlike the 2010, I got my LTZ for $1801 UNDER MSRP, not over.
Oh, I see, $1000 under invoice, in area where there might not be as many dealers, and lower LT model is pretty good I think.MadMark said:Thanks. As I stated, I am in Wisconsin. FYI $24,500 is $1,000 under the MSRP of $25,500. Not over.

When I was buying mine, I had the same thing happen. I ended up walking over a $400 doc fee that I requested be reduced by less than half. I really didn't like the attitude of the "Manager" so I walked over $167. I emailed a dealer 15 min away and they said sure!coreyp said:It sounds like an average deal....i.e. Heard better and worst....but only by a few hundred dollars either way. The Nox is very popular so the dealers are reluctant to just let them go. However, I don't think you are out of line to request the $200 fee to be taken off. If the dealer wont go through with the deal because of $200....you can find a different dealer willing. In most situations I have found that dealers wont budge on things like that until you "start to walk away from the deal" yourself.
Congrats and enjoy!MadMark said:Thanks for the replies all. In the end I bought from another dealer, I got another LT1 with PDD driver convenience, but this time a black granite paint (my wife's preference, not mine) for $24,698 + $107 "dealer service fee" = $24,805. Minus a $50 dealer gift card. In other words, $50-$100 more (depending how you value gift card) than the first one I was looking at, but also with the black granite metallic extra option. So once you figure in that, a slightly better deal. More importantly for me, the dealer was 8 miles vs. 75 miles away, that tends to wash out the difference in terms of time & hassle. Also we got a vehicle with only 5 on the odometer, no other customer had driven it, vs. one that was on the lot a while.
Subtracting my $4,255 GM Card reward accumulation, my personal final price was $20,550 before taxes registration etc. Of course they tried to sell me thousands of dollars of dealer add-ons, but I refused them all. I'm happy, the LT1 has quite a lot of standard features for a base+1 trim level!
Depends on which card and I think when you got it.rutger1413 said:I thought you were only able to apply $1000 of your GM card rewards towards the Nox/Terrain?
Correct. I have one of the old cards, which I opened in 1992 around when the probgram started, I think it used to be called "Blue" or something, and am grandfathered in at the old terms when it was discontinued (around 1998?). Although they keep trying to get me to convert to the new card (I always politely decline).Terra-Nox said:Depends on which card and I think when you got it.
This story had me rolling!Hysterical, and a very creative use of the terms to best advantage!!!MadMark said:...wrote a great tale about his card...
Glad you liked it. Yeah, it was a leap of faith for me back in 92 when I got it. I wasn't' sure I would ever use it, but back then there really weren't any great rewards card alternatives except for airline ones with big annual fees, and I was unlikely to use. The card I had been using (the only CC I had ... oh those were simpler times!) didn't give me any rewards so it was all the same really, the points were just a bonus. At that time I had a VERY hard time imagining myself buying another GM actually. I had an '84 Skyhawk, and it was a complete disaster, I used to call it my "piece of Brazilian [email protected]" (I'd read that assembly was done in brazil).mnussbaum said:This story had me rolling!Hysterical, and a very creative use of the terms to best advantage!!!
Kind of interesting, I never considered any GM car until the past year or so, so having the credit card would have been a waste of time for me. Now I'm kind of jealous.
