#12028 of 12254 2012 XLE sienna 33,095 out the door with life time tires and 0% for 5 years
Sep 06, 2012 (5:04 pm)
I purchased my 2012 XLE Sienna for 33095 out the door price with zero percent for 60 months on May 31st. The added options were the wheel locks and carpets with the door still protector. The other benefit i get is lifetime tires up to 600 dollars and lifetime free car washes whenever i want them. This was in Baltimore Maryland at Jerry's Toyota. The only negative thing is there customer service is not good so i get my work done at another Toyota dealer. But if i need my tires i go here because they are only free through them. Jones Toyota in Bel air Md is another great dealership with great customer service. They off lifetime free oil changes and i got my 2010 Corolla Le from them at 16650 out the door price. I could have done better but we needed a second car fast. They also give free hot dogs, popcorn, coffee, manicures, shoe polish and car wash for life. Hope this helps.

#12030 of 12254 Re: Buying Experience Boston Area - 2012 Sienna LE 8-Pass V6 FWD [isodyok]
Sep 09, 2012 (8:40 pm)
We were offered by this same dealer a 2012 LE v6 FWD (tow pack, mat) for 26200 cash payment after 1000 rebate, or 27200 with 0%/60m. Early this year their offer was 27800 while another local dealer offered 27200. No promotions were available at that time. So my feeling is this is an average online quote at this time of the year, but better than those starting from sticker.
They didn't have the color we wanted though, to get the color right we were offered two choices:
1) take a 2013 same model (tow, mat, plus roof crossbars) for 26700 cash, or
2) a 2012 model (tow, mat) plus entune navigation for 26500 cash AR ( or 27500 with 0% finance).
Net-net we think offer 1) is better because we don't really care about integrated gps, however we prefer the 0% finance so we took 2).
Dealer doc runner fees were fixed standard. We were told in advance so we have that in mind while negotiating.
This is our first new car experience, we hope we were doing ok. My feeling is there is still room for say 500 lower if we wanted spend two more hours there. The online quote is a low ball offer to get people to the dealer, but definitely not their bottom line.
About the sales rep, not the type we like though, not very informative, too pushy and resulted in backfire several times.

Where did you install the navi and backup sensors? I just got a basic XLE but with a $1000 higher price than yours. Sad... Thanks.

Well I think yours is better. It's XLE vs my LE, sticker difference is 3500 base to base. You got sunroof, leather seats, power front passenger seat. I would be much happier to take your model. Trade?

I too think that 2013 offer is a bit better deal for paying cash (LE comes with automatic climate control). When I purchased last month Toyota incentive was 750 and we paid 26,006 cash after incentive (not including 395 dealer fee, has tow & mats). For 700 more I would have preferred 2013, but didn't think 2013s get discounted so early. Agree that it may have been possible to knock off another 500 but that would have been after 2hrs of mental agony. But I think going with option (2) you got one of the best prices for the LE w/Nav (about 500 more than LE).
In my case there was nothing "open" (color, financing etc) before I stepped in the dealership so did not get to see the traditional haggling side of things, just paid and drover off. At the end it was the price and that was not bad at all.
#12035 of 12254 Has anyone else gotten jammed trying to purchase their lease from SETF?
Sep 16, 2012 (4:54 am)
Our 2008 Sienna had a great buyout price of 11500 and we know it is in good shape because it has been ours.
Oddly it was leased in NY so not with SETF, but rather TFS. TFS told us (at first) to go to any Toyota dealership and they would do the transfer paperwork rather than us just sending in a check through the mail (as is customary) to buyout the lease. I didn't think too much of it since there was a brand new dealership in BRadenton that I wanted to see anyway. We go in and the dealership is new and shiny, they bring out the paperwork and it is 14300 not itemized. I ask them how they got to that figure, I mean expect to pay tax/reg etc but this was much. They try to stick us for 900$ dealer fee to fill out 30minutes of paperwork, plus another 800$ that couldn't be accounted for they said it was inspection fee.
I stormed out called toyota and after a bunch of calls someone pointed us to a lexus dealer in the area that did the paperwork for us for about 100$ very fair they are I guess a TFS company.
The Toyota dealerships are absolutely terrible in our area (Sarasota/Manatee counties) and this is about the 3rd really bad experience in one down here that has sworn me off of individual dealerships. I wonder is it just SETF arrogance becuase the stock answer from Toyota each time I have called to complain is "Sorry each dealership is independently owned we cant do anyhting"?
I wish I had known this in advance because it was stressful,
#12036 of 12254 Need opinion on Sienna LE quote
Sep 19, 2012 (8:44 pm)
This is a wonderful forum and I thank you all in advance for sharing your wisdom.
We have a 2nd baby coming and with family visiting often need to get a minivan.
Since 2013 models have come into market I was looking for a 2012 new car to get some price leverage and finally have a quote that seems to be OK but need your feedback -
Its for a Sienna LE Dealer Demo Model (2012/5338A) with 6K miles, includes LE Convenience Package + LE Preferred Package + Towing Prep Package for 26,500. My guess is I would need to pay separate sales tax that is not factored in the dealer's final price. Does this look like a decent deal for a 2012 LE with 6K miles ? The MSRP on the sticker was 29,700 + 220 (anti theft) + 220 (Towing prep) + 325 (Carpet foor Mats/Door Still Protector) + 810 (Delivery Processing and Handling Fee) = 31,275.
LE Convenience Package –
includes fixed center console and roof rails.
LE Preferred Package -
Dual power-sliding doors and power rear door, an eight-way power driver seat with power lumbar support, electrochromatic rearview mirror with Homelink, multi-information display with backup camera, rear window sunshades, AM/FM/MP3 CD audio with integrated SiriusXM satellite radio capability with 90 day trial subscription, auxiliary audio jack, USB port with iPod connectivity, and hands-free phone capability and music streaming via Bluetooth connectivity, and steering wheel audio controls
Towing Prep Package -
includes 3500-lb. towing capacity, engine oil cooler, heavy-duty radiator and fan. Anti-theft system with alarm and engine immobilizer.

From the mention of LE Preferred Package I guess it is a 4-cyl LE and the 26,500 for a 6k demo is on the VERY high-end of price scale (even after all the packages and accessories).
If you review some of the posts here you can see that New 2012 LE V6 8-pass FWD were purchased (with all those options plus more) for less than 26,500. I myself purchased one in Aug for 26,401 + ttl. In Sep Toyota has more incentives (750 vs 1000) so I think the best price to target on V6 LE 8-pass FWD is around 26,250 when 1000 cash incentive is used (including destination & dealer fees, mats, tow prep and roof rail cross bars), depending on the local market couple of hundreds more.
I would stay away from that LE 4-cyl deal, moreover V6 would be a better choice in my opinion (the 4-cyl only has miniscule mileage advantage and at times is underpowered for a van of such space & versatility). This may be the reason Toyota dropped 4-cyl all together for 2013.
