    2014: 1000
    2013: 4000

    Both are on top of preferred pricing, which is like 1000 lower than msrp.

    wow, that's big! Already have $3,000 off 2013 models too...

    My dad is a GM retiree. Since GM went through bankruptcy, the employee discounts aren't as much as they used to be.

    There's still room to haggle too. Since the dealership gets the rebates from the employee discounts, they aren't losing anything. I was able to haggle about 600 bucks more on some of the vanity options that they tried to stick on me. I also spent an hour in the finance room not taking their bs.

    interesting. If I get $6,000 off, I won't bother haggling about $600 bucks more.

    Couldn't you just get that anyways? If you were a good haggler?

    Also ask for reductions in warranty extensions and gap insurance - those should be reduced in cost as well.

    I just priced up a V6 RWD Premium and it was $49,xxx. Net price with all discounts was $42,xxx

    Just for giggles, I priced up a V6 RWD CTS Premium sedan as well with the Touring package (19" wheels, Recaro seats, etc). Sticker was $53,xxx and savings was almost $10k

    Re: what's the GM Employee discount worth on new ATS?

    Can someone explain what the different terms mean, for the ATS on the link posted above it says "$3,000 Total Cash Allowance" plus "$1,000 Employee Vehicle Allowance"?

    I've bought several cars on the GM plan since my dad is a retiree, but I've never seen these terms before...

    Thanks!

    All I can say is that they start with the employee price, which is a couple of thousand under the msrp (they have a book they use), then they take current discounts ($2k on 2013) and add employee discounts which amount to another $2k. Then you can or could get 1/3 to 1/2 off extended warranties on the car (and separately on the wheels/tires). As others have pointed out, it adds up.

    Total Cash Allowance is an alternative to 0% APR financing (to qualified buyers). You can choose which one you want on most GM vehicles.

    Employee Vehicle Allowance and preferred pricing are default and do not change.

    EVA is employee cash on top of any consumer cash. The employee price is no secret anyone can go to gmfamilyfirst and check regional incentives. It's not true that the discounts are less after the bankruptcy. GM employees discounts have always been less than say ford A plan or Chrysler's.

    This employee pricing changed dramatically 01/01/2010. Discounts are not what they used to be...
