I agree--not expecting any discounts. Just finding something available with the options you want seems difficult enough right now.
still not good as far as the lease figures go.
there is NO subvention on the levante.
all standard rate, standard residual fare.
don't bother looking for discounts.
you can try, but when these cars last HOURS when they arrive, if they aren't already sold.
I have a 2015 Ghibli and stopped at my dealer about 2 weeks ago and while there looked at the Levante they had inside. I thought it was very nice but the sales guy said they were not accepting offers below sticker, they had 3 other Levantes outside as well, all white, the one inside was red.
The dealer is actually on my way home from work so I drive by every day and the white ones have been parked out front probably close to 6 weeks now if not 2 months.
Yesterday I got the spam email from the dealer saying they got 4 new Levantes in and to come in or call before they go, well they still have the 4 they had 2 weeks ago so now they have a total of 8, 6 regular and 2 S models. I may stop to see if they got in any other color options next week if I have time but they are not selling here at sticker price.
here is a little known method of getting what you want, slightly quicker than a fresh order.
find a dealer, ask them if they have any assigned unsold Levante in "10" status.
those can be altered and changed to exactly your spec. they typically will only take about 3 months to receive, instead of teh usual 5.
i'm sure you are aware, but the reason for the lack of supply is because the vehicle was JUST released for sale in the USA in September.
the first few months of production were/are not many... for instance September, if i recall, was 400 cars for the USA. October was maybe 600.
you wont see any REAL volume on lots until second quarter 2017.
plus those of us that were proactive began taking orders back in February when the order system first opened.
