So most dealers won't budge on these prices, but I noticed from random threads a number of dealers are offering ridiculous incentives. I thought I'd start a dedicated thread to help out our prospective family.
$36,500 Plus taxes= 42k Canadian on a manual Red Lusso with comfort package. and 5 years 0 int. finance. Now for November you can finance for 7 yrs 0 interest. I might take a crack at the Abarth if price is right.
Bought an aluminum abarth with brembo brakes and Ricaro optional seats (the only two options I wanted) with a
$31880MSRP - $2630 dealer discount with .9% 36 month financing deal. Picking it up next week.
Feel fortunate to have found one within 50 miles that was equipped the way I wanted. Although I hear the red ones are just a smooch faster.
Apparently Spiders in Portland are not selling (too much winter rain?). Three weeks ago there were a dozen or so on the lot of Ron Tonkin Fiat. All were discounted 15% (note: this store is located on McLaughlin Ave. I did not see the same discount at Tonkin Fiat on Canyon Road in Portland). Three weeks ago I purchased the first Abarth delivered to Portland. I got a 10% discount on the Abarth. The second of only two Abarths was sold the same day to a man from California who flew to Portland and drove the car home. One California dealer told me they wanted $4,000 over MSRP; most in California were not discounted.
The manual Abarths are selling as soon as they come in. But all the Lussos are auto, as are the Abarths that are not selling. But then in Portland it has been raining for the last four days and the weather report is rain, rain, rain.
Black Friday Fiat Canada Reducing $2,500. + 7 years 0% financing and plus giving $500. Black Friday Cash Bonus which I did not get, and I will fight to get it. And I am pretty sure comes November they will give more.
IMO 15% off MSRP is a good price for most cars and if you are not too picky about the exact configuration, that is a target discount where you can say you weren't cheated. Normally I would not buy a car if I couldn't get at least that much off. I was willing to accept a little less discount on the Abarth because it is not a common car, is brand new, and this one had the only two options I would consider buying although I probably would have picked red for the color if there had been one sitting next to this one. Didn't think I would see another like it real soon.
I really didn't know until I came to this site after I purchased the car that the Abarths were such recent arrivals in the U.S.
The dealer has two more Abarths and a classico in inventory with the same discount. I was able to trade $250 of the discount in exchange for getting the .9% financing, which is a real deal on a loan. Here is a link. http://www.fiatusaofyoungstown.com/new-inventory/index.htm?make=FIAT&model=124 Spider
and eve better 0% financing for 7 years, what's the interest rate in the us for fiat. Still cheaper in Canada normally it's cheaper in the US, But since Marchione is Canadian Born we get better prices here. >>
Drive away price on an Abarth here in Sydney is AUD$43,500 (~US$32,400). Brembos are standard fitment on all cars, together with the European Abarth trimmings (minus the alcantara centre console lid strangely). Special paint colours add AUD$499 (~US$370). Recaros add a further AUD$1,499 (~US$1,115). Visibility Pack (LED lights, blind spot monitoring, etc.) is AUD$2,499 (~US$1,860). Record Monza exhaust is expected to be around the AUD$2,000 mark (~US$1,488).
Financing is a whole different kettle of fish, so I won't go into detail here.
Black Abarth, Automatic, in Los Angeles, 30k (out the door) including tax/fees using Fiat $500 and lease conquest of $1000. And that's not pushing them very hard, so I imagine there's more profit to be lost if you've got haggling skills...
