What do you think I could get a new Essence for?
30% off MSRP seems to be the sweet spot for most of the bargain hunters. Some have paid a little less, some have paid a little more.

Actually they are a collectors item now, but you could probably get the one in my driveway with less then 5 thousand miles for $100k. Or I would probably trade for a brand new Caddy with Blackwing power, in white or silver and light colored interior.

I bought my 2018 Essence with the moonroof package, April 30, stickered at $$39k+, actual price before trade in was @ $28k. After trade in I got it for $24k. This was in Metro Minneapolis St. Paul.

Doesn't sound too bad, I paid $2000 more than that in April for mine.

I'm finalizing paperwork on one tomorrow. It's a 2018 (red needle) with 3.5K miles, fully loaded. Sticker in 2018 was for just north of $41K. I haggled to $24K before dealer fees and taxes kick in.

I am finding out Florida dealers are not in the mood to deal. Best I got so far was a loaner with 2200 miles down to 31700+++.

I've always heard anecdotally that Florida dealers have very high charges for "paperwork" fees.

I was in the business down here. It's true to an extent as the state doesn't cap the dealer fees, just regulates saying if you charge one, everyone has to pay and it must be the same amount.

Leaned a long time ago the bottom line is the only number that matters.

That's why I always want to know the true "out the door" price - tax, title, everything, bring my own financing and give them a chance to beat it. I'm lucky to be in a state where the new vehicle sales tax is only 3% so I pay the tax and title fees upfront and finance just the purchase price.

Finance charge on mine was $600 in GA, which I thought was high. Also didn't realize until the contract that you are taxed on the dealer fee.

I believe I was out the door for $25,900.

Wow that seems like a incredible deal. What trim options?
