Form VSCRFD100-03/15/05 (first page of service contract agreement written by dealership and signed by myself and dealer representative) states "100% VSC Refund/Buy Back. If the VSC indicated above goes full term without a claim, PREMIER SELECT agrees to refund/buy back the VSC Purchase Price up to a maximum of $ 4000. This agreement applies only to the original purchaser as named above. Premier Dealer Services is the administrator of this agreement and has sole obligation for all elibible reimbursements. This agreement is non-transferable....".
The rest of the page contains more information on how to receive the entire purchase price "IF the eligible contract has expired by time or mileage, no claims have been paid on any of the Service Contract Benefits and a request has been made submitted to PREMIER SELECT at the address listed below within 30 days of Service Contract Expiration".
This policy provides a nice incentive for me to keep my 2006 Sienna LE for 7 years. Cost more than the DaimlerChrysler extended warranty the original owner got on my 2002 T&C LX but has ZERO deductible with full purchase price refunded if not used while DC agreement is $ 100 deductible with pro-rated refund less $ 50 fee if cancelled before 7 years expired.

How rare is the Sienna Limited model? I have searched at every dealership in Nashville over the internet and only came up with 2 Sienna Limiteds distributed amongst 5-6 Toyota dealerships.
And what are people paying for Sienna XLEs and/or Limiteds? Are they paying more than CE/LE customers, especially since the CE/LE models seem to be far more common...

I have not been mailed the complete details, but I do not think that I have the 100% VSC/Buy Back provision of the extended warranty you are referring to. Did that cost extra to have the provision?

I don't exactly know what Toyota's build mix is but they are not rare. That said, they are not really plentiful either. Supply will vary some due to location.
Percentage-wise, the discount from MSRP on them is about the same as other Siennas.

Ok. I remember looking at Laurel Toyota and Fitzmall and they had plenty of Limiteds.
Do you think if I went to a bigger city such as Atlanta that there might be more Limiteds available?

I would think so. Dealers tend to order what they believe their customers will buy. Just use Toyota's website to look around. Not every store lists their inventory but you should get a good idea of what's on the ground or, in some cases, what's incoming.

I'm going to buy an '06 Sienna limited AWD. I would prefer without DVD/NAV but for the right price would go for DVD/NAV. There are about 4 dealers in a 2 hour radius from my home and they all quote the same prices and don't seem willing to budge.
AWD limited WITHOUT DVD/NAV for 35,800 (msrp is 38,985, invoice is 34,761). This is before any rebate.
After reading this msg board, this sure sounds high. If the price won't come down, what extras are the easiest to get thrown in? Extended warranty? Mats, sill protectors, etc (big deal!!)?
Thanks for any advice. I'm paying cash, no trade in, no financing.

We just drove up to Rockville MD to 355 Toyota (Darcars), had a pleasant experience. In and out in under 2 hours, they seemed to be doing their best to make us happy. Abdul was very helpful. We paid 25900 plus 104 in fees for an out the door of 26004 not including state tax. Retail was 30845. Seemed to be a good price to us. The car only had 2 miles on it, when we got there it was still wrapped in plastic but they still got us out in 2 hours. Well worth the drive up there.

My two cents:
1) Expand your search radius - there's is ALWAYS someone who will sell for less.
2) Don't tell them how you're paying for it, especially here - cash is not, in their eyes, a positive thing.
3) Don't mention the lack of a trade until you get a quote.
4) Any extras "thrown in" are usually just to close a deal (unless already installed) and not really of significant worth.
