      I went in talked about what my options were, this was November, so the 6MTs weren't out yet. I was advised that ordering was the best way to get a 6MT once they started making them. I left that day saying I wanted to order but I had time and I didn't want to seem to excited. Then I found the deal and brought in the paperwork then next time I went in and then ordered the car.

      So if that's what you're going to do I would print it out and bring it in when you were ready to order but if they have sold a S w/ 6MT they sure as hell could give you the invoice price.

      I am in NNJ if you're in the area. Will easily order you an Alltrack for under invoice minus any rebates.
      Good evening shawshank, thanks for the help. I sent you a PM.

      Thanks for the help. If the certificate expires, can I print another?

      I believe they are good for 30 days but my dealer honored it even though it was way past when I ordered.
      But to be on the safe side maybe go talk to them first and tell them that you qualify and see if they want the cert now of when the car shows up.

      Thanks. I confirmed with a couple dealers today that they participate in the partner program. They don't seem to want the certificate until the end of the process. Frankly I'd rather do it up front, because I'm afraid of sleazy dealers messing with me at the 11th hour.

      For those following my riveting saga, I dropped by a third dealer today, who also said they wouldn't commit to a price until "the month the car arrives." Their starting point/baseline price before incentives is invoice plus $500. That's right between the other 2 dealers. So I guess they can offer whatever they want, as long as they aren't being too generous to the customer. But no, I didn't push hard. Tough to get fired up when you're practically falling asleep talking to the guy, he's so disinterested!

      I got my Alltrack S automatic for about $23k (excluding tax and title) down near dc. I've been unsure about how I did pricewise but this thread seems to be confirming that I did quite alright...

      MSRP was about $27.7k
      $1k - conquest discount
      $2k - dealer financing discount. 4.9% interest rate. I was planning to pay cash but I can pay this off early. When all is said and done i'll have likely paid $150 in interest.
      $1.7k - ???

      It came with monster mats, cargo block package, and a roadside / breakdown bag.

      ---

      This was my first car purchase. I was surprised to walk away with relatively little information about the loan - it arrived in the mail about a month later.

      I didn't even try to negotiate - partially because i had to take a bus down from nyc to buy the car - but the price seemed good.

      Here's my datapoint from the SF Bay Area, closed on it 2 weeks ago (Serramonte VW):

      2017 Golf Sportwagen TSI S 4Motion DSG
      $26,020 - MSRP including Destination
      $20,778 - negotiated price after $1,000 conquest and $500 partner program discount but before taxes/fees
      $23,156 - total out the door price

      Was originally going to get a 6 speed manual, but there were so few of them that none of the dealers were willing to give me a deal, at best offering the conquest and partner program discount off MSRP. Additionally, I felt that it was not worth paying more for the 6speed as it did not provide an exciting drive that I thought a manual version would offer (this is my first VW so I have no prior experience with other VW manuals). I did test drive a 6speed GTI and it felt a lot sportier than the GSW-4M-6speed, but ultimately went with the GSW-4M in DSG form mostly due to wanting the extra space and also the price.

      If I get the SCCA membership today, can I use the partner program tomorrow?.....or is there a required membership time to qualify? Also, if I am already under the invoice price, is this an additional $500 off my best deal, or is it simply 5% on the dealer invoice?

      Alltrack SE w/ 6MT No DAP, no mats, etc.

      So with the Partnership / Friends and Family deal this is where I ended up:

      $29,222 dealer invoice price
      - $500 Partnership deal
      +$2010.54 NJ tax
      - $1000 loyalty bonus (which was after tax)
      + fees
      + title and license
      =I paid $30,440 (rounded up) out the door.

      I also got them to give me the muddy buddy rear mat and 3 oil changes.

      It is $500 off your best deal as it comes in the form of a voucher the dealer submits to VW. Also yes you can use it tomorrow if you'd like, there is no minimum membership timeline.

      Oh really, $500 off your best deal? That is not at all how I interpreted the partner program website. I thought it was just the $500 under invoice as a baseline before incentives. Here I have simply been trying to get dealers to do better than that, didn't think it could be stacked. Can someone confirm this or point me to where it says that? The dealers have not volunteered this information...

      Got the SCCA membership yesterday and then went through the steps to get the certificate. I had already been negotiating with 2 dealers on a 2017 Alltrack, white/beige, DSG, S-trim and both of them said, "yup, no problem....we can take the $500 off your deal, which is already well below invoice". VW does reimburse the dealer for the $500 once all the proper paperwork is submitted. Ready for the details on the deal? $23,300!! I wanted to purchase this outright, but at price they're "encouraging me" to finance a minimum of 5 months at 5.09% / 72 months ($376/month). The buy rate for finance was more like 2.49.....or so I think.....because my credit is in great shape and north of 720. They must get a kickback from the lender. The dealer is just trying to salvage something from this deal, since I can only imagine this is about moving another unit, not making a nice profit. Even with that I think the finance charges over 5 months turn out to be about $267, so my real cost on this deal is $23,568 which is still a smoking deal from what I can tell.

      2017 Golf Alltrack SE
      04-24-2017 04:55 PM #64
      So I sort of lucked out. I originally had a Tornado Red GSW SE on order and the day came that I got the call from the dealer saying it had arrived. I leave work early and go pick up my wife to make the 2 hour drive to the dealer to sign paperwork and be on our merry way. Well wouldn't you know it, they ordered the wrong vehicle. So now begins the game of "how did this happen and what is the next step?" The dealer said they could deduct $520 off of the GSW and order another one, or they could get me into an Alltrack SE for the same price. After a long discussion with my wife we decided to take the deal on the Alltrack even though she had her heart set on the GSW (Liked the styling better).

      After a week or so the dealer found a Tornado Red Alltrack SE at another dealer and did a dealer trade for it. After everything was finalized we ended up getting the Alltrack for $27,055 out the door! It was just too good of a deal to pass up. Very happy with the car now that I have had a chance to drive it around a bit.

      So, I did end up ordering an Alltrack at a local Boston area dealer this past Monday. After getting the same inflexible story about ordering a car from the 3 dealers I visited in person, I emailed 8 more for quotes on my dream configuration (in retrospect, I'm lucky to live in a metro area with several dealers within 30 miles). One dealer, without much prompting from myself, seemingly broke all the rules that the other dealers were hung up on:

      - They immediately offered slightly better than partner pricing (without me even mentioning the program). This compared to other dealers who were unwilling to go below invoice.
      - They applied incentives to the price at the time of ordering. $1000 for loyalty and then subtracted another $500 off for partner program rebate (their own idea, not mine).
      - They wrote this pricing all on the paperwork (when I asked), and I signed it.

      I am hopeful that they will be similarly straight with me when the car arrives. In the meantime I'll do the partner organization thing with SCCA so I can get my certificate (even the timing of this didn't seem too critical to them). No timeline on the car yet. I called them at 8:30 the night I ordered to see if it went through (due to the apparent 2017 ordering deadline being that day). They were still having trouble getting it into the system! But the guy didn't seem too stressed about it. Haven't heard anything since, which I hope is good news. I'm not sure my current car will last until the 2018s are in production... Thank you all for the help, I'll check back with my final results.

      Maybe they will accidentally order the wrong car for you and hook you up with a sweet deal like what happened to me! I hope all goes well for you. I am loving our Alltrack even though we originally ordered a GSW. The styling has quickly grown on me and it is a lot of fun to drive. Can't wait to start with the upgrades

      Thanks for the good wishes. Funny story, VW wouldn't let the dealer order the car with DAP because it was too late in the production cycle (they said). I had to call them a few times to find out what was going on, which was a bit annoying. However, they did offer to order me a 2018 with DAP, so that's what I did. Price is almost the same, 100 bucks more than the 2017. I'm having some faith that they won't mess with me too much in this whole thing. I'll feel better when the order is actually placed in a couple weeks. Details are sketchy right now on the 2018 pricing and specs.

      Also, VW would do well to not jerk around its dealers and customers with last-minute announcements of model year production ending, or cutting out options even when the order guide says they should be available. Luckily for them, I really want this car and I can afford to wait an extra couple months for the 2018s.

      Still a good news story so far, I think!

      Picking up a 2017 SEL Friday, put a deposit on it and did all the numbers.

      $29k + tax tag title.

      That is $5k off.

      I put down 500$ deposit for a S trim with manual Alltrack. Do you think 24k$ out door price with 2k$ down payment is a good deal for this month? Usually VW has different discount for each month

    20. 05-12-2017 10:05 AM #70
      I got a call yesterday saying that the Alltrack I ordered was in. We had agreed upon $27,572 for an SE with nothing else. When I got there, they said it was even cheaper at $25,972. The catch, I had to finance through VW, which I was going to do anyway. However, I couldn't use their promotion of 0.9% and get the cheaper price (different promotions)
      It was either the higher price at .9% or the cheaper one at 4.9%. I went with the cheaper price and then I'll refinance it with my credit union for a lower rate in a couple of months.

      15 Kerosene fired shooting brake
      05-14-2017 07:57 AM #74
      I got a tip from my buddy who is my sales guy at local VAG dealer (Harmony) and rifled through his stack of window sticker copies, found a tornado red SE with good features, and got first dibs on it when they came up for potential resale a while back. Glass roof, heated seats, infotainment touch screen without nav, satellite radio, v-tex, 17's with Pirellis, DSG/paddle shifters, etc.
      Sales Manager called me. I went down and looked at it, drove it, etc.
      Bought it. It's the wife's new wagon.

      What did I pay? I took the 0 for 72 and 5k discount, got the full extended warranty added, since VW has crawfished on their warranty since I started buying their stuff in '13. I had zero room to negotiate since they were selling 3 as we were buying this one. Literally looked out the window and had to figure out which tornado red shooting brake tdi was ours in the front staging spots. People were driving to my dealer from hours away (read: major cities with powerhouse dealers) to buy GSW TDi cars.
      I'm pretty happy. Drove the car away from the dealer and on a 4 hour trip yesterday. Couldn't be happier with the car. The deal was OK. Got a few "we owe" things on the paper work, like buffing some scratches on the paint from parking lot time.

      I wasn't about to drive a 4 hour round trip to another dealer just to play their fork-fork games. I think I paid too much for the extended coverage, but I was salty about the lack of warranty on this car anyway, as mentioned. Powertrain warranty now only covers stuff touched by oil and the fine print says no electrical after a lesser period. So, given VW's reputation for electrical problems, I feel like the extended warranty is a good idea. Resale on this should be good, and the extended warranty is transferrable, so if we wind up not liking it there shouldn't be any problem with resale.

      I worked in a discount on parts/accessories through the dealer for 30 days after sale. So, if I decide I need something from the ridiculously priced driver gear catalog, it will now be somewhat reasonable. Also extended that to tires through the dealer. But Tire Rack will be better, so that pointless. But the stock Pirellis make a lot of road noise, and I'm not psyched about that.

      In my local market, these cars are in high demand. So, I took the deal I got because I wanted the car and wanted out of my Beetle convertible.

      I ordered my SEL Night Blue/Marrakesh Brown with DALP in late November. Last week my salesman said it would be available for pick up June 1st/2nd. I'm a bit disappointed that the $1000 loyalty bonus has gone away. If the car was built in the time-frame they said it would be I would have gotten the incentive. As of now I would only qualify for the $500 under invoice partner program. I wonder if they will have any incentives in June
