Can you provide some details on the lease.
I only see a Toyota lease offer on LE for 269/mo from toyota no incentive.
Is you lease from Toyota?
Did you get excess wear and tear coverage?

#12177 of 12250 Red 2013 Sienna LE purchase
Jun 29, 2013 (7:29 pm)
Summary: Purchased 2013 Sienna LE FWD 8 Passenger in NY/NJ area for $27430. + standard add on fees such as destination fees, license, taxes, etc.
Sought internet prices from dealers listed through Edmunds. None committed to any firm price; very evasive. Some wouldn't give any price at all, trying just to lure me into showroom. This is disappointing, because it defeats the purpose of internet pricing. My policy is only to visit dealers who give a price.
I notice that so many are purchasing XLE, but I was trading in an Odyssey LX that I bought based on Honda's good reputation. The Sienna LE had more features than an upgraded 2003 Odyssey EX when I last shopped for a minivan. That said, I am turned off to Honda minivans with their reputation for transmission problems and their 6 cylinder deactivation engine design and its problems. This time, I would have purchased a Dodge Grand Caravan before another Odyssey.
The Sienna LE has more than enough bells and whistles for me. I would have gotten the "L" Sienna except I hate vehicles without privacy glass.
Sansone Toyota in NJ ignored my requests for a price, asking me the same questions over and over. Plaza Toyota in Brooklyn doesn't have a great reputation, but they treated me respectfully and their price was very close to my recent purchase price, maybe better. Manfredi Toyota on Staten Island, NY, is supposedly participating in the Costco Auto Purchase program, but they never even contacted me. I didn't pursue them because of their dismal reputation.
So I gave the benefit of a doubt to Rt. 22 Toyota in Hillside, NJ, based on their higher Edmunds rating. Rt 22 Toyota who finally offered the above price, but beat me up on my trade-in. I believe I could have gotten a better price, but in all honesty I didn't want to keep visiting Toyota dealerships. With the exception of All American Ford in NJ (who were impressive), I have never had a dealership be straightforward.
I believe the Sienna to be the best made minivan, certainly better than the Odyssey, but I don't know if it's $10,000 better than a Dodge Grand Caravan. I used to own the Chrysler minivan, and it gave me better, longer service than my Honda Odyssey. That said, I believe that Toyota's Sienna will give me the best service of all. Time will tell. Good luck, everyone. Keep helping each other out here, to help level the playing field between car buyers and unscrupulous dealers.

XLE with navigation package, blind spot monitor, 10" DVD player (Distributer installed DVD) and window tint for MSRP of $39018. Bought it last Thursday for $35200 out of the door in north Houston, TX. Comes out to 32870+ 2055 (tax) +275(fees). Also great service from the dealer team( specially the sales manger). It was my first dealer I contacted but I couldn't resist and bought it on the spot. I hope it was a good deal. Got The loan from PenFed to get this price.
