      Which website you used to compare specs and prices? I am currently using Cargurus and I am doing almost the same thing with a 1500 miles radius following "MyVolvoS60" comment regarding shipping prices. I am just wondering if those discounts usually apply to new cars only or used as well, and how negotiable is the used car price? I bought my 15 S80 T6 with 11k miles on it, almost brand new with almost every option Volvo made and I got it from NY (I live in MA).
      The car price is actually $56,900. OTD cost is relative and varies by state. Just add your state's tax, tags, and title fees, plus the dealer fee and document fee, around $5k additional in FL. I only use Cargurus, True Car, and other car pricing resources as a guide for my bottom price offers. Just don't be afraid to make a reasonable low ball offer. That's how you find out how low can they go. Good luck.

      Thanks so much!
      Some northern Virginia dealers are very aggressive on their pricing. It is a very competitive auto market up here.

      Truth
      0% is always good... though you're giving up a big chunk of change on the XC90 right now to get it, still on a $0 down setup, it's a good deal. 1.99% for 60 on CPO and 2.99 on 72 isn't bad either.

      Owner loyalty is double in our region... but it was better last month.

      First responder rebate includes teachers now too, but is not combinable with loyalty.

      The peak (or bottom) of used car values was mid April.... There were some crazy cheap auction prices at that time. Now it's pretty well rebounded. We're passing on lots of auction bids and we're short on used car inventory again...

      When the market on used cars is amazing... your trade value is gonna suck... keep that in mind.

      I wouldn't say it's an environment worthy of coming out if you weren't in the market anyhow. No one is giving things away more than usual. But they'll tell you they are! Boy I hate hype =-D
      Aren’t incentives based upon the zip code where the purchaser lives rather than the zip code where the dealership is located?

      Do you still recommend doing this during the pandemic? Are you suggesting to do it sight unseen without even visiting the dealer? What if the car is damaged during shipment...who is responsible? Is it at all possible to do with CPO vehicles or would you recommend with new only?

      I would love to learn more about the process of setting up a shipment. Any links?

      Would you be willing to elaborate on this? Do you just mean that the dealer doesn't want your used car?

      I bought my car as a CPO sight unseen in 2016. Figuring that anything major would get resolved under the warranty. There were a few cosmetic blemishes. Car had about 2200 at purchase and the bottom of front bumper had some lip rash, which is common. Go over a bump too fast and it's easy to do. A tap of lip rash near the wiper lip on hood. I tossed on touch up paint over. Nothing worth mentioning.

      Pretty much, if you stick to getting a CPO, there shouldn't be much to worry about here. Ask dealer for images of the vehicle you're interested in. I know the shipper cost me $625 to go 1500 miles. The shipper also did a pick up inspection and I did my own when the vehicle was dropped off to me. Inspect the vehicle before signing off to make sure everything checks out of course.

      If you wish to cross shop with CarGuru / Cars.com and find a vehicle that strikes you as a great deal, I wouldn't hesitate to buy online. There always remains the option of flying and getting it yourself, if you are keen on doing so. Otherwise, if you factor in $600-700 to ship, and those numbers keep the deal to your liking, go for it.

      I'll have to grab the name of the shipper I used later today if you are wanting that information.

      Nope, it's based on the dealer zip.

      Do you guys consider buying from non-Volvo dealers, or Volvo dealers only?

      I'm not sure what you mean by your question. Any Volvo branded warranty is cancelable though. I'm sure some actuary somewhere has the math figured out... On an unlimited mile warranty the pro-rated portion would be based on time... From the pricing I've seen over the years it seems time more than miles is the big driver of cost on warranties.

      For the second comment there... it's just common sense... if the market is so amazing to buy cars... that means dealerships also have a bunch of cars they don't want, and that they aren't going to pay top dollar for a trade just to sell it to someone else for an "amazing deal". Dealers make money selling cars... if the market is super low (which it really isn't at least in this area) that has an equal effect on trade value.

      However, our market has been booming as I mentioned. Things are sorta normal last week, but I've already sold more cars in June than I've ever done with Volvo before and I have a week to go. We would love more retailable trades right now (late model CPO able volvos). I've gotten far better than NADA trade offers from our wholesalers for some trades we've taken in as well. I think it's all more in spite of COVID than because of it. So now may well be a great time to buy a car, but honestly... it's always a good time, just marketing people will make you think that YOU got the best deal.. You can make the math look nearly as good any time.. and each persons situation can be different so there might be a better time for you, but there is never a best time for all.

      I just bought my first used Volvo. It's a Certified 2017 XC60 Inscription T6 and had 30,500 miles on it. It was a local 3 year lease return and I got all the maintenance records with it. It has a lot of bells and whistles, but doesn't have the 360 degree cameras or lane change assist package. Sticker was over $52k and I paid $24,400. They only moved $400 off their internet price. It was cheaper than lower models with more miles at all of the area dealerships and a bit beyond, so I went ahead with it. I needed to replace my 2014 Ford Edge (great car) fairly quickly and decided to try a Volvo. My sister in law's family has the old convertible, my sister's family has 3 (XC90, S90 and the old convertible) all purchased used in the last year and my brother has owned a few old ones.

      In addition to the $24,400, I paid tax, title, registration fee and bought the 100,000 mile 10 year warranty for $1701 for peace of mind. I don't drive a lot, but I do expect to make trips between Ohio and Florida, so when they came down from $3,000 for that warranty I took it.

      Congrats on the vehicle. AWD or FWD? I will say warranties are far cheaper from Steingold Volvo than most dealers offer. Steingold is a regular and active member on the forum. Not sure how long ago you bought the warranty, but you might price the same one out from him. As there is a window where you can cancel the warranty. Worth checking the price difference between Steingold --> Dealer to see if any bit significant.

      Sorry if I'm in the wrong group. It has everything except the package that includes the lane change and the 12 speaker stereo. I have Blis, front sensors, rear sensors/camera, heated seats front and rear (but they barely get hot, so I'm taking it in), heated steering wheel, washer nozzles, front windshield, side mirrors. 301 HP supercharged and turbocharged engine, 8 speed transmission. Not sure what else.

      Thanks for the tip. I just got the title today, so I'm not sure of the time to cancel the warranty.

      Mine is AWD.

      Contact Steingold for a price, see what he offers, and go from there. If the price is superior to what you paid, I am sure he can guide you on how to cancel and purchase with him instead.

      I bought a CPO 2017 XC90 T8 last month and was also looking for extended warranty. You got the 10-year/100,000-mile CPO upgrade warranty for $1701. IMO that is a very good price, Steingold quoted $2453 for the same warranty, and gives a $500 discount when you use the forum coupon code, so $1953 final.

      Couple of things:
      a) the dealer said taxes extra on the extended warranty quote, so probably sales tax applies. Steingold price is all inclusive.
      b) the extended warranty that dealer was selling was not by Volvo- it was from MPP. The sales person insisted it was the Volvo warranty, but when I finally got to the finance guy for the sale he clarified it was from MPP, but "much better than the Volvo warranty, covers stuff that the factory warranty doesn't" (his words not mine ). And that I had to buy it along with the car, no option to think about it and buy later. So I declined and got the 10-yr/unlimited-miles warranty from Steingold - https://vip.steingold.com/product/Ce...0-S60Hybrid/80

      According to the contract terms:
      - Cancel within 30-days to get a full refund
      - Cancel after 30-days but before 60-days to get a full refund minus a $50 processing fee
      - Cancel after 60-days to get pro-rated refund minus the $50 processing fee

      Where'd you buy your vehicle? I got mine from Autobahn.

      Pro Tip. Make sure what DavidEid is indeed a Volvo warranty and not 3rd party!

      I bought mine locally in Dallas, TX from Crest Volvo.

      The finance guy told me that 'Crest' is owned by Berkshire Hathaway and so they only sell BH's own auto warranty plans (MPP - https://www.berkshirehathawayautomot...anty-plans.htm). I said I was a bit surprised that a Volvo dealer wouldn't sell a Volvo extended warranty plan, and he replied that the Volvo warranty is actually administered by Fidelity Warranty Services and it was a conflict of interest for BH to sell both. Whatever...

      You are correct. The Volvo backed Extended Warranties are underwritten by Fidelity. I am remiss to think that the Berkshire Hathaway, a 3rd party carrier not endorsed by Volvo, is treated in the same manner as the one from Fidelity/
