Cadillac SRX Second Generation Forum - 2010+ Discussion, What should I be looking to pay???? in Cadillac SRX Forums; I'm looking into a 2010 srx premium, it has a sticker price of 49,9xx. What should I be looking to ...
There are no incentives on this vehicle. You get $500.00 off to wave the right to bring it back before 60 days.
I haven't heard of anyone getting a deal. It would come oughta the dealers pocket, and that ain't gunna happen.
They are selling well enough without any incentives.
Not sure if any dealer is willing to cut you a break, but you might qualify for GM incentives. See if there is a Loyalty or Conquest Cash for your marketing area. If you belong to a credit union, you may get supplier price. Plus there is the Fed tax deduction for new cars, up to $49,500 (on state/local sales tax).
On another post, a guy got his ordered for $500 over invoice, and another post indicated a $1000 off a couple of months ago. Some dealers in my general area are taking offers; there are even 2 on Ebay, but I know one is a base model! It will soon be a buyers market when spring comes around and production catches up to early orders!!
During my SRX comparison shopping between dealers, I found dealers quoted prices ranging from invoice to the fixed supplier price point (I was told by one dealer that the GM supplier pricing helps buffer their margins since GM reimburses the dealer). The SRX is an in demand vehicle at present and driving a bargain until supply catches up or demand drops is going to be tough. The lowest bid I received was from a dealer 50 miles away from the city.
I called GM customer service before I signed my deal and was told that there is no loyalty program at present (as of early Dec) for the SRX, anywhere in the US, however, there was a conquest rebate which kicks in if a non GM vehicle is traded in for an SRX.
The GM supplier pricing will get you approx 4% off MSRP and is a no-haggle way to get as close to invoice as you can with the popular new SRX (and in case the dealer wants to sneak in a markup!). Credit union memberships may help you qualify for this.
As was mentioned earlier, there is always the $500 rebate in lieu of the 60 day return guarantee. I don't mean to sound negative but I strongly recommend you read through the posts in this forum to decide if you want the flexibility of returning b/w day 31-60 should any of the issues few of us have reported hits you (I pray it doesn't since the SRX is one fine vehicle!) Note that returning the SRX b/w 31-60 days of ownership will cost you the registration/paperwork fees plus any possible opportunity loss due to difference in sales tax to acquire another vehicle if you traded in one for the SRX.
