#11930 of 12254 Re: Toyota Sienna XLE FWD 8-Seat [surrealimage]

I am in CT and shopping around in New England. For V6 XLE FWD 8-pass Predawn Gray Mica, last week I got an initial quote for 30,628 (includes dest) + 349 dealer fee + TTL from Boch Toyota in MA. It was indicated that further savings (perhaps shaking down that dealer fee or more) are possible if I am serious and willing to buy within days. I opted to wait until I know of the new incentives starting 7/10 and the looming 2013 models.

That is a good price. You should wait for some more time and see how the prices come down. There will always be a sweet spot time you should buy after the new models are announced. I believe, we cannot really predict the model year available stock/ demand. Good lucj.

Agree, 2012 availability (of trims, colors & options) will be unpredictable as I wait too long. Also I think any extra savings due to 2013 models may be in the 500 to 1k range. Little tradeoff between savings and immediate summer use/enjoyment of new car. Thanks.

#11934 of 12254 certified check--Is this a scam?
Jul 08, 2012 (2:11 pm)
I pre-negotiated the price and went to the dealership to purchase a new Sienna.
At the dealership when I am ready to pay cash and the sales-person (general sale manager) suddenly told me that I can only pay with "certified check"s, not personal checks.
Is this a scam or legitimate?

Its possible they have been burned in the past on the issue. A certified check guarantees you have the funds in place where a personal check can bounce or be easily be placed on stop-payment. A personal check shouldn't have been a problem if they were able to run a credit check on you and insure you had the means to finance if necessary.

This is a standard business practice and I have never purchased a car any other way. Once you leave with the car and or possibly the title it is really hard for them to get it back.
When was the last time before this that you bought a car?

I live in Houston area, TX.
I bought a new 2012 Toyota Sienna LE (V6 8 Pass) on June 30th for $27,500+TTL=$29,600.
Is this a good deal? Can other buyers share their experiences and prices paid? Thanks.
I can't even get near that number with the dealers in my area (NYC). The lowest I've gotten so far is $28300 for the LE V6. Lucky you!
