That is indeed a good price. I bought the 2011 Sienna XLE with Navigation Package at $32, 400 plus NJ sales tax (7%), NJ registration (now 4-years) $399, doc fess ($199), and destination charges $800.
You shoudn't not pay more than $33,500 for Premium Package. You can go to Edmunds.com and configure the Sienna with options or buy a report from consumers report for $15. Get all the bids from competitors and take them to the dealership and bargain hard - you will be very happy with the outcome.
With all the ongoing issues at Toyota (most issues are overblown by media
), and for your own protection please consider the extended warranty.
I am giving back 2007 Sienna and our trasmission failed at 20k miles!!
Hope you find the right deal.

Floor mats are not the only interior pieces that are sub-par, pats_fan.
If anyone cares, we got a 2011 Ltd AWD w/ "Prem Pkg," MSRP $45,333, for $39,500. I was going to use my own loan, but they (Toyota of Nashua) were so hungry they lowered the interest rate a bit more. The trade-in we had actually got us more than I expected based on KBB.

Do you think if I offer 32k that's a lowball for XLE FWD 6 cyle with premium package and floor mats?

For Premium Package and floor mats that's definitely a low ball. Premium Package (NAV and DVD) is a $6k+ option ($5k invoice).
It depends on timing, supporting documentation you have, etc. I don't think it's doable as it eats away even the holdback. Invoice on the one with Premium is $35k, so I don't see $32k as even a close start. It may show you didn't do your homework and you aren't realistic. If you want the one with Premium Package then your target should be around $35k or just under.
I think you should offer $32,500 and move to $32,750 eventually (basically invoice) on the van we configured above then you will get for that. Moving small amounts vs. big amounts shows you are set on a figure and you did your homework. Also ask for credtis with parts, extended warranty, etc. in your negotiations. You can give up on some of those to show you are caving on some things.
#10786 of 12253 Help, Please! 2011 FWD XLE 8 Seats with NV and EY package
Aug 10, 2010 (6:56 pm)
Hello, I need some help and advice about the quote for XLE FWD with NV and EY package. Last Saturday I just ordered one 2011 XLE 8-Passengers with remote engine start, mud flaps, mats and sill protections and cross bars for $31,100 + tax. In the meantime, my salesman told us we are not obligate to purchase it if by we change our mind later although we paid $300 first. Also the dealer salesman has tried to sell us another van with NV and EY with 500 mileages on it for $34,800 + $150 Doc + $100 Title + Tax. Can someone help us to figure out the best quote price for me to get? I've tried some dealers in IL and WI, but they all started with higher quote. I would be appreciated anyone's help, because I really need my van by September. Thanks.

I want to thank you for all your help so far. I'm sorry to be such a pain but this is my first new car purchase and I have been dealing with a pretty shady dealer (but using him as practice mostly). Last night I told him I wanted a Black XLE FWD 6 cyl with the premium pack and floor mats and that if he could get to 37k out the door then I would come in and buy it right then and there. When he called back saying he could do it for 41k I said thanks but no thanks.
Just to be sure that I'm on par here, these are the numbers I'm working with. (these are slightly changed as I've added the premium package whereas before I was just working with Nav and dealer installed dvd). Could you please let me know if these look off?
Base for the car 28,314
Premium Pckg 5,000
Floor Mats 198
Misc Fees 550
Total (bid) 37,836
The hold back on this car I believe is roughly 643 but I may be wrong so I'm thinking my bid of 37k was not that far off. It's roughly 2k more than I wanted to spend but the dealer installed dvd worries me that it won't look right.

Glad to help. I enjoy this. Here are my thoughts on your numbers. First, the math is incorrect. Here is what I see using your numbers.
$28,314 (Invoice you were given, I show $29,278 as the invoice, mine probably includes holdback)
$ 5,063 (Premium Package Invoice)
$ 198 (Floor Mat Invoice)
$ 810 (Destination)
$34,385 (Sub-total for these items)
$ 3051.67 (Tax)
$ 550 (Misc Fees)
$37,986.67 (using your numbers)
Holdback on this is $644 (you are pretty much spot on with your estimate and you need to add that to the net invoice). They also have regional add fees of roughly $654 factored in for a dealer cost of $35,360 and an invoice they will show you of around $36,003. (link below)

If your numbers are correct in what they gave you, I don't think you'll get to $37k OTD. I think you may be able to get to $37.5K with cash in hand ready to go. If the numbers in the link are correct then you will be closer to $38.5k all in OTD.
The Premium Package adds a lot of cost. You can get the NAV and DVD package as stand-alones too, which can lower your cost. The MSRP on one with NAV, Dual Screen DVD Entertainment Package, Mats would be $39,389 here in NC. If you just want the dual screen DVD, you may want to go that route and save a bit.

I live in your area (WI). Check my two posts (10715 & 10718) for the deal we got. I highly recommend Heiser Toyota in Milwaukee and Jack Safro Toyota in Brookfield.
WI laws protect the customer. If you put down $300 and you don't purchase, you will get that money back.
Let me know if you have any specific questions...

Thank you, pax2u. Actually, I sent quotes request to Heiser and Jack Safro, but both dealers quoted the prices were high and unwilling to work with me. So I am not sure what it's the best way to get a good bargain! If you can, please email me the salesman name. Also give me some ideas what price I should ask for.
XLE FWD with Premium Package , cross bars, mats with sill protectors
XLE FWD with DVD and NAV cross bars, mats with sill protectors
Thank you very much.

Madbadger1: We talked to the salesman Heiser about XLE w/ Premium Package. He was willing to match another dealer's internet price of $34,995 (plus TTL). We ended up going with Nav Package, so the Premium package became a moot point for us.
Please provide your email address and I'll send you his contact information. He was extremely nice to work with! We ended up going with Safro, so it will be good to send someone to Heiser.
