Aug 17, 2011 (3:34 pm)
2007 Toyota Sienna LE
Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM
Magellan Wireless Backup Cam
7" nav screen with backup cam function installed myself, total cost about $400. OEM Nav cost was $2200 on this model! And I got lifetime map updates included, plus the GPS has integrated traffic, bluetooth, text-to-speech, etc. It's the flagship GPS for Magellan right now.
Follow-up video demo of the custom bracket mount I made myself:
Would work on any 2004-2010 model. Change the mount and you could do the same on 2001+.
#11447 of 12254 GOOD PRICE FOR 2011 SE???
Aug 17, 2011 (7:03 pm)
I was sent a quote by our local dealership and was wondering if I can get any advice/opinion here if it is a good price. Apparently, you can only avail one of the ongoing promos, either financing or cash rebate (1k in GS region).
Sticker Price - $36,175.00
Quoted Price - $32,673.00
OTD price (TTL included) - $36,119.41 (not including $1k rebate as 1.9 financing is a better deal)
Here are the options:
Silver Sky metallic
SE preferred package
Preferred premium package (cargo net, door sill protector, carpet floor mats, first aid kit)
Power Tilt/Slide Moonroof with Sunshade
Roof rack cross bars
Vehicle Shield Package
Premium Security System
DECOR PKG (no idea what this is)
Thank you in advance.
#11448 of 12254 2011 Sienna LE V6 -- NE Philadelphia Area
Aug 18, 2011 (6:13 am)
I emailed 10 closest dealers and the quotes are all around 27.8K+TTL (including the 1K rebate). I think the quote is significantly higher than the good deals I saw on this board. What do I do as a next step? Anybody has any good sales person to recommend in Philly area? Thanks.

Aug 20, 2011 (8:28 pm)
Just wanted post my deal. I paid for $26,400 plus doc fees ($499) from Zag in metro Atlanta. Black LE w/ V6. Tinted windows and floor mats included. No other upgrades. It was the best I could find. This also included 1.9% APR w/ $500 rebate. They are only supposed to do the deal on in stock vehicles but they gave to me on one that was due in next week. Hope this helps.

#11453 of 12254 2011 Sienna discounts
Aug 24, 2011 (6:04 am)
We are looking at a new Sienna (loaded XLE or Limited). Do not know if we should wait till 2012. Dealers are playing like they do not know the minor changes which maybe on 2012. Also the discounts in Illinois are not dramatic enough to convince me to buy a 2011 vs. A 2012. Every time I go to buy a car at the end of the model year, am always told the discount on the new year will be non existent, then when it comes out, there is the discount. The 2011 has technically been around for almost a year and a half. Any suggestions where I can get a great deal? Anyone know the minor changes on 2012?

Dogsambam, I am going through the same experience! The lowest quote I have received on the 2011 Sienna Limited (approx $46,000 msrp) is about $42,500 minus the $1000 rebate. That's $41,500 for a minivan, albeit a loaded vehicle. I do not think people are paying these prices for a minivan. I want to be more in the $40,000 range, and it seems like people on this Board have paid that number earlier in the year. Most minivan purchasers buy the LE for the practicality but good price point. I think there are many Limiteds on lots, despite the name.
As for the 2012, I am hearing first issue is the release date. Some dealers are saying they will arrive in September, and others are saying with the issues in Japan, parts will be delayed, so the vehicles will not arrive until November or December. Now if that is the case, there will certainly be a spike in demand and prices will not be too discounted, unless you have a pre-arranged deal via Costco or some other buying program (ie, $500 over invoice). We know the 2012 prices on the Siennas are pretty much the same (per the Toyota release) but for the SE model which now has the RES. The Toyota release also said that there are no significant changes for the 2012 model year, but I am not sure if dealers truly don't know or are just playing coy on what they know.
You are right, the 2011 has already been out for 18 months, so the only reason to buy it is (1) if you like the model as is (without any "changes" for the 2012), and (2) if you get a good deal to justify the "old" age of the vehicle.
The comments I read seem to knock the cheapness of the dash. I checked it out, and don't feel that way. I think it is fine. The other comment was maybe improved MPG. That would be great, but not a deciding factor for me. So my issue more has to do with price, and I am inclined to keep searching until I find the price point I want. And if that takes too long, it would bring me closer to the 2012 release date, and then we start with a "newer" model, maybe some changes, but without the rebate/reduced money factor/financing offer, so left to our own resources for negotiation and price.
So the question is: is it worth $1,000 to negotiate harder now for that sweet deal that you can't refuse because you get a new car you like as-is with the age factored in the price, or wait and see what the 2012s will bring?

Ecolorado, could you clarify whether the 32715 included tax, title, license fees?
