Re: Negotiations for a 2012
There have been a lot of posts regarding getting a better deal on a 2011 vs a down the line higher resale value of a 2012....
Using USAA, back in August, i got 1,200 off invoice on a pre order for a 2012 and got exactly what i wanted.
That being said, for a 2011, you have a lower invoice price, higher discount from some services and if you are lucky, the 750 coupon i just got in the mail...in my case that would have worked out to @2-3k savings over my 2012....several weeks ago when the true nature of the "new" 6 speed tranny became known (after i put down 500 bucks for the pre order), i looked for a 2011 in the configuration i wanted....I couldn't fine one, and rather than compromise, i continued with my pre order.
YMMV,but if i could have found what i wanted in a 2011, i would probably have gone that route.
I had a
