#11693 of 12254 Remote Starter Sienna LE V6
Jan 14, 2012 (9:55 pm)
I bought a 2012 Sienna LE V6 from Schaumburg Toyota on Golf Rd in Illinois. I paid $500 for a 2-way up to 2000 feet remote starter when I bought the car. The dealer installed a 1200 feet remote starter. When I looked up the remote starter online, I found this information. So I talked to the dealer and said that I will seek a $100 credit for it. I was told that the 1200 feet starter was the best one they got. Obviously, I was ready to take it to next step and trust me, I meant legal action. Although I did not say this to the dealer but I think they figured and offered to install a 2000 feet remote.
Here in Chicago, it snowed a few days ago. Today both of my Sienna's sliding doors got stuck half way while opening as well as closing. This is after the fact that I cleaned all snow on my car. I am not happy with this. My wife and I had to wait in below freezing weather with our baby to open the door.
I have 3 other Toyotas in my family and I am upset that my 2012 Sienna let me down today. Obviously, I will take it back to the dealer to get this fixed. But it looks like this is a common problem on Siennas. Just search it on google and you will find plenty of posts. Other than this, it has been an excellent car so far (past 1200 miles)

I bought a 2012 XLE + NAV this week from a dealership in Montgomery MD. Total is 33200 before TTL, which I am satisfactory. The dealer is quite responsive.
#11695 of 12254 Be careful about this dealership

Had a very bad experience with James Toyota Scion in Flemington NJ. What they do is to give you a competitive price, and when you are onsite, they increase the price by several hundred dollars for whatever reason. (Even you have the confirmation of their price guarantee). They then try to convince you that the increased price is still a good deal. But when you insist that they should sell the car for the original price they guaranteed, the manager will tell you they change their mind.
It is just waste time to deal with them. Just couldn’t believe they claim they are one of the best Toyota dealers in New Jersey. Do not ever want to do business with them!
#11696 of 12254 Re: Extended Warranty from Molle Toyota [ginstarxiao]
Jan 18, 2012 (2:17 pm)
The policy is legit. I called Molle and paid by credit card, and then received the official documentation by mail. Since I am OCD, I then called Toyota directly to confirm all the terms of my extended warranty (length of coverage, mileage, deductible, platinum plan, my contact info) and it all was in the their system. Price was $990, and there was no tax since I am out of state. As I said, I did this with my Lexus two years ago with an out of state Lexus dealer and it was all legit. You are not married to the dealership you purchased your car for buying your extended warranty. But of course you can go their service center (and they will gladly welcome you) for extended warranty covered repairs.

#11699 of 12254 2012 sienna XLE - what's a god price in the east bay area
Jan 26, 2012 (10:35 pm)
never bought a new car before, was wondering what i should expect as far as haggling price here in the east bay area/san fran, sacramento area.
WILL PAY CASH UPFRONT. want a 2012 toyota sienna XLE with premium package & entertainment package (navigation, blue tooth, DVD, rear camera, remote door entry, etc)
the MSRP at two different dealers are $39,250 and $40,750 (minor options make up for the price difference).
1)realistically, how much should i expect dealer to come off of the MSRP?
2)Or what should be my bottom line price (not including TTL) if i am paying cash or does cash make a difference?
any insight you all can provide will help me before i go in the dealership.

I got a 2012 XLE AWD with Navigation package in silver without any manufacturer rebate in Sept/2011 from SF Toyota Dealer. The MSRP for my van was $40160 and i got it for 36800; OTD price was 40356. There is a manufacture rebate of $750 and the price should be less if i were to buy now. You should call few dealers to get few quotes over the phone to get a sense of a fair price now.
Usually dealer is willing to go lower if you choose the finance option since they could earn interest from the loan.
