#10546 of 12254 New inventory of 2011 Sienna V6 LE - Bay Area
Jun 20, 2010 (8:42 pm)
I was told by one of the dealers in Bay Area that the new inventory of 2011 Sienna V6 LE was supposed to come in on the 18th of June.
Did anyone get higher discounts on the LEs this weekend?
Last week I got a quote for $26,895 from a local dealer, but he had only 2 cars Black and White color. The next best quote I got was $27,695 with more color options. Even Ebay motors and Zag.com are having best quotes close to $27,695.
I am still waiting for a good deal below $27K + TTL, especially knowing that my friend bought 2010 Sienna V6 LE for $23,995 + TTL back in the month of March 2010 from a local dealer. 2011 Sienna price will surely come down, given the economy and Toyota's ongoing problems. Also, 2011 Odyssey will have an effect on the Sienna price soon.

I just pulled the trigger. I was trying to hold off until the new Honda van came to market in hopes that the Sienna prices would go down. The wife is impatient!
8 Pass FWD XLE Predawn Mica
Options: EY (entertainment system) and floor mats
paid $32,890 (before TTL) which should be approx $200 over invoice
Negotiations were humerous. The Fleet and Floor Manager were appalled that i demanded to pay invoice. After plenty of schpeels, a few trips back to the Desk Manager, etc, etc, I finally pulled Truecar.com up on his computer. i took him throught the senario. showed him where is competitor 40 miles away was offering for $100 above invoice. he says "hard to argue with that." and he gives me the deal.
i have a genuine lack of trust for these guys. I still walked away wondering how much they made on me. wondering if i could have gotten more. i must say i was surprised at how uninformed the dealership folk were withregards to the info that is out there for consumers. perhaps they were acting dumb, but i don't think so. i can't blame them. i looked around the desks at dealership, the other patrons playing The Game without the "cards" that i had. I'm amazed that John Q Public doesn't know that he has access to look at the Toyotas cards, the dealers cards, and other patrons' cards through sites like this. without that info, you are destined to lose The Game.
I also got a nice deal on my trade. i received a competing quote from Carmax the previous day which i carried as leverage just in case. The dealership (Claremont Toyota) gave me 12% more, pre-haggle.
I spoke with JJ at Midwest Toyota. I'm going to get the 6 yr 100K ext warranty. the claremont toyota guy scared me, telling me the Midwest was probably selling some third party policy. JJ had all the correct answers to my questions. i'm convinced his deal is a legit policy from Toyota. hard to believe the savings!
I can't thank you guys and gals on this site enough. i knew how to negotiate already but you supplied me with the data and resources that enabled me to pull off a deal that i am happy with. keep up the good work. fight the good fight.

Hi - I bought almost the same van about a month ago but no Convenience package. Looking at the sticker, the MSRP for just Limited AWD is 39,770.
I also didnt know that the scheduled maintenance can be extended. Do you have to bring it to the same dealer or will any Toyota dealer accept it? If it does then I will check if I can still have it added.
i love the Blizzard Pearl - it sparkles. But to some it just look white.

That was our second choice too then third is either red or black. We already had a blue and a silver (different car though) so we wanted a different color. We didnt like the gold too.

Sounds like a good deal! Congrats!
I'm trying to get an LE in bay area. which dealer did you buy it from?

Jun 21, 2010 (12:56 pm)
Most of the XLE's I seen were 8 passenger. So I'd say yes they do. All trim levels have the option either way except for the Limited it only comes AWD.
