Scheduled my appointment to test drive a 2018 kinetic blue premier fully loaded and possibly buy!

Any negotiating tips? Also what did u guys pay for yours or what does a good price sounds like?

This was on their internet price:

Msrp is 41120
Select market bonus cash (I think this saving is if I buy it outright)-2000
Ev Special Savings is -2060
Documentation Fee is +599

Sale Price Total is $37,663

Do you think they will go a lot lower than their sale price total?

Without the doc fee it seems only like 4000ish off MSRP.

Thanks, I am new to this group but the forums seem really helpful!

Like pianocaddie says, where are you? If you're near the West Coast, you can get $3-4k off Dealer Invoice (not MSRP) from Keyes Chevy in Van Nuys, and have your prize transported to your venue. This is WAY better than the deals you are contemplating.

I'm outside of Philly and drove an hour to MD for the best deal. I think you should be able to shave $500-1000 off your price, maybe more with the 2019's out.

I searched a 200 mile radius with cars.com and found a bunch of dealers in MD and MA with good prices advertised. Contacted a few by phone, some were not interested much in an out of state deal some were. If you already have the one you want (blue is hard to find), show your local dealer the cars.com price and see if he moves. It helps to have something to back up why you should pay less.

It is true that GM incentives are regional, so even if you drive to MD you will not get their advertised price because you're not registered there. But, for whatever reason, those dealers offer a better initial discount than locally. Could be be because MD is one of the clean car states.

Post what you end up getting. PM if you want the dealer I used.

The dealer benefits when you agree to finance with the dealer's bank or GMAC. I negotiated the purchase of my 2016 Volt by putting the maximum that the dealer would allow on my credit card (either $2500 or $3000, I forget how much) because I earned 2% back on purchases made using the card. I put a down payment on the vehicle of 1/3rd of the balance of the purchase price and financed the remaining 2/3rds knowing I would pay off the loan in full within a month or two months. The dealer did not care; the dealer still earned credit, points, cash back for signing me up for dealer financing. When negotiating the purchase price let the dealer know you will consider financing with their bank or GMAC. Just be sure to read the fine print to be certain there is no prepayment penalty and you are not obligated for making a minimum number of payments with interest prior to paying off the loan. Most people who finance vehicles don't pay them off early even if they say they will, so the dealer and the bank makes a profit on most of their loans.

I live on the east coast in NJ
so do I. It's not bad but I think you can do a little better $35-36k would be a good target. Make the offer, if they balk then say you'll have to think about it and start walking out. That's usually works :) Oh, and get them to throw in the cargo mat or something.

Get Costco premier membership ($110) and purchasing new Bolt will give you $700 from Costco.
