Hello everyone,

I am seriously thinking about purchasing a new or used Z-06. I live in the Sacramento area and my local dealer has about 10 used Z-06's that he is asking MSRP +10K markup on. I can't even imagine paying that for a used car. I would like to get a new 01 or 02 but what should I expect to pay? Any good lease deals going on right now?

Also, dealer names would be appreciated. Maybe I could have one shipped if I find the right price.

Thank You,

Ash

Maxie Price is selling brand new 01 Z06's at about $43K. I'd try there first. I know that they will ship also.

Thank you for the replies!

Silver would be my color of choice and then blue.

What/who is Maxie Price? Do they have a web site?

Thanks again,

-Ash

Yes they have a web site, it is www.maxieprice.com
They are also a supporting dealer on the corvetteforum. You can also go to www.gmbuypower.com and find other chevy dealers. My local dealer also wants $10K over MSRP on 2001 Z06's but I found plenty of dealers on gmbuypower that are willing to sell even 2002's for MSRP or less.

David,

Thanks for helping a Forum member, but to be honest, Maxie Price has been selling lots of Z06's here , yet they do not want to support the forum. [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif[/img]

Free advertisement helps them, and supports CF, but it does nothing for www.z06vette.com. [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif[/img] I know for a fact that the measly $25-$75 a month we ask for supprt does not equal what they pay elsewhere.

Like I said, thanks for trying to help a member. [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

I agree about what you said on that Sacramento dealer. I had a similar experience there. They are out of their friggin mind try to get such a high markup on those cars. Caveat emptor.

In fact, all dealers in Norcal, especially in the SF Bay Area, are ripping us big time. Me and a few other list members have had to resort to buying from out of state dealers to get a fair shake. Go to the other forum for "dealer experiences" and read all related posts. I posted there about "out of state courtesy customer deliveries" that might be useful to you.

No matter what, whether buying new or used, don't reward a dealer such as in Sacramento, that simply expects you to simply bend over.

Thanks again for the info guys...

I've only been married for a month now so I'm having a hard time convincing the "boss" that I need a 'vette.

UGH!!!

you can do much better than that if you are willing to travel, but if you are going to buy one sight unseen, I would recommend a new one - a carry over '01 as someone mentioned. MSRP + 10K would just be nuts for a used one. It is pretty obvious that there are a lot of uninformed used car buyers in your area if they are willing to pay that much.

I don't think the buyers around here are uninformed, I think that the have the money to spend and they can care less if they waste 10K. Well, I DO care!
