We tried three times to purchase a Sienna Limited--7 passenger of course--in the Tarrant county area/FTW TX and suburbs...
were trading a 2009 Camry Hybrid with leather seats. heated seats/mirrors, sunroof--upgraded sound package--nicer options than most Camry Hybrids...
First dealer we went to was one I bought the Camry from using Internet shopping...got decent price on car considering that was the summer when gas prices went to $4+ a gallon a few years ago...
This time didn't do that--
went to showroom to shop--met salesman--liked him--drove car--liked it better than I thought I would...
went back to make deal on Saturday with trade in
they lowballed us on that--only offered 14K when Edmunds shows 18--
they finally came up to 17K for the car which had been in accident several years before and repaired and no problems with driving it now...no problems of any kind really with this car...
We dickered--the Sienna we wanted was not on their floor--said it had to be trailered in from outside Metroplex...had lot of extras even for Limited--the 3Mfilm protection, remote start OEM which is much better than dealer installed...
anyway best price we could come to was 24K plus TTL which would have added another 1800-2200
they offered no extended warrenty to sweeten the deal...
First dealership was the best--
had the best car to offer and really the best price on trade and final price
the second and third had similar cars but lacked remote start and 3M film protection which I really like
They never came up to 17K for my car and one of them tried to get us to take a drive out 31K...
one of them added in $3200 for extended warrenty that was terrible deal...
The sales managers for both of those dealerships called within 48 hours to ask what it would take to make a deal...my husband had already bought a Buick Enclave...he decided to trade his Tahoe and use the new car for his driving vs mine...
We could have paid cash and apparently that means you are so rich you don't have to get a good price in some people's minds...
We should have taken the deal with Freeman but at the time we hadn't done any shopping and didn't know how difficult it was going to get...

Hi there, I believe the Sienna is manufactured in Princeton, Indiana. Does anybody know if you can purchase it cheaper there?

You can't..... destination charge is the same for all of the lower 48.. and, you have to use a dealer.

I'm in the market for a Sienna SE right now, but I realize that the 2013s will be out soon. Anyone know when the dealers will be getting their 2013 inventory?

I'm curious to know if the Edmunds rebate is still available and they can be combined.

Interesting, I far as I know the Edmunds $750 rebate hasn't been available since late June, but since you had 45 days to redeem it its possible these two rebates could overlap if you timed it right.
