I've checked Los Angelon, San Diego, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and Tuscon and nobody is budging from MSRP that I can find. Has anybody found a dealer in that vicinity that will sell for a reasonable price? Supply and demand my ass, it's a Buick not a Ferrari.

Thanks!

You can order it via the dealership I ordered mine which is in Toledo, Ohio. They can have the vehicle drop shipped to a dealer in your area. Bottom line...order from a dealer in Toledo. He will then contact a dealer in your area that you haven't already spoken numbers with in your area. Instead of the car going from the plant to Toledo, it will go to a dealer in Arizona. I called my sales person before this post to ask and he stated he would love the business. The msrp for the vehicle I ordered was $43040. I paid $39,329.69. I could end up paying $38,329.69 if the $1000 rebate is still in effect when my Enclave arrives. FYI...Destination fees wouldn't change since it's coming from the factory. You pay $735 no matter if the dealer is next to the plant or the other side of the country (like AZ). Send me a message if you want my dealer's contact info. Your taxes wouldn't change either since they are based on where you live not where the purchase was made. I had to pay Columbus, OH taxes and Toledo is about 2 hours away from me.

My dealer in Needles CA wouldn't go less than $500 over Invoice (same invoice as KBB, with no added Advertising and a $55 Doc Fee), but insisted on etching the windows for $299. Note: Please don't jump all over me again about the etch.
Of course, I am still waiting for my friends at GM/Buick to decide to build it.

Ok, just got off the phone with the dealer that just happens to be closest to my up and coming new house in Phoenix. He said he'd do $1,000 over invoice minus any rebates. With active duty $500, conquest $1000, and gm card $3000 I'll get my new Enclave for $3500 below invoice.

I'll believe it when I see it, but if it's true I'll be very happy with my purchase price. *crosses fingers*

I believe that right now you can only use $1000 of GM Card earnings on the Enclave.

Also, while the drop shipping idea is a good one, the receiving dealer will most likely want to collect their dealer fee for the trouble, which is typical for such an arrangement.

For the newer card. For those of us with the older card the limit is $3500 (7 years of earnings at $500 per year max).

Good to know, thanks! I got a GM Flex card in January specifically for a future Enclave purchase. I expect the limit for that card to get up to $2K in a year or so.

"Old" vs "new" GM card rebates

I've got the "old" GM card too. I last used my earnings for $2600 towards my '04 Rendezvous. And that was in addition to the $5000 rebate GM was offering and the $2000+ dealer discount. MSRP was $32k, I drove out for $23k, including tax/tag/title/doc fee.
I plan on buying my Enclave sometime in 2010 or 2011, unless GM comes out with that $5000 rebate again (doubtful). I should have another $2000-2500 in GM card earnings by then.

Dealer pulled a standard dealer act on me. Sold the vehicle we had "agreed" upon and tried to switch another. This will be my 4th new vehicle purchase. 1 purchase was an M3 from an overseas 1-price place that caters to military, the other 3 standard buys. All 3 buys in the US and I've run into dishonest dealers. I guess they just need to reinforce the stereotype, and is it really a stereotype when it's always true?

Do assholes become car dealers or do car dealers become assholes, that is the question.

Yeah, been there! I honestly think that these guys are so hungry, so long, that they can't help themselves! Not an excuse, but a possible explanation! But we don't have to buy!! Free enterprise is double-egded for sure! See above entry "Dealers gouging.." Pockettodd did it smart!!

Good luck & thx for serving! :thumb:
