#6464 of 12250 New Sienna Ltd.
Apr 12, 2006 (7:20 am)
Just bought a slate metallic Sienna Limited w/ option package 3.
Price paid: $39000.
Trade-in value on 2003 Highlander limited: $18,500.
Graduation rebate: $400 (graduating from medical school in May.)
I bought extended warranty for about $1200 (I can't remember exactly).
Total priced financed (at 0% interest) was $21300.
The best part is that we found exactly what we wanted right here in good ol' Arkansas. I thought I'd have to go out of the Gulf States, since these limited models are so rare here that dealers usually won't stray too far from MSRP.
For all of you willing to negotiate with dealers through email, I'd definitely recommend the Orr Toyota in Hot Springs, AR. No hassle whatsoever. If anyone needs contact information, please feel free to contact me.

May I ask how you got the 0% finance on your new Sienna? Was it from Toyota or a dealer thing?

It's one of the incentives currently offered in the Gulf States Region. You can take a $750 rebate, or your choice of 0% for 36 mo, 3.9% for 48 mo, or 4.9% for 60 mo. I was surprised to see those rates, since the best rate the Honda dealership could give me was 5.75%.

0% in the Gulf States area? I would have never said this in the past, but I might have to go INTO the Gulf States area and try and get a deal.
My region is offering $1000 cash or 2.9APR/36 months.

Has anybody had any experience dealing with the Toyota dealers in Las Vegas area? How about Findlay Toyota in Henderson?
I will appreciate the response...

#6470 of 12250 Our experience, AWD Limited
Apr 16, 2006 (11:25 am)
We live in New Hampshire and just bought a silver "06 AWD Limited for 35,114 from Alderman's Toyota in Rutland, VT.
I suspect that prices tend to run high in my area and there is little room for negotiation.
Alderman's was pleasant to deal with and they delivered the car to my house, but there were some issues which made the experience less pleasant.
We had originally agreed on a price of 35,113 for the "06 Limited AWD on March 4, assuming a $750 rebate at the time of delivery. The car actually arrived at the dealership on April 10, at which time the rebate had increased to $1000 from the $750 it had been when we made the deal. Strangely, the price I paid did not drop $250. They cited that the invoice price had increased and that their profit remained the same, at $750.
Well, I wasn't going to make a big issue of $250 at this point, but I felt that I should have paid less since the rebate increased. I really doubt their profit was only $750 on this vehicle. I also doubt that the invoice price increased.
Anyway, I'm probably buying another Toyota in the next 6 months and this dealership is aware of that. I'm surprised they didn't do more to try to gain my business on the next one. Instead, this kind of sleight of hand makes me likely to move on to another dealership.
Overall, not the worst experience ever, nor the best. I just wanted to post my experience since I benefited from others having done so.
We LOVE the Sienna, by the way. Much nice than the Acura MDX we had before.

I am also looking to buy an AWD XLE in CT and would benefit from insights into local dealer experience.
#6472 of 12250 advertising costs
Apr 23, 2006 (12:13 pm)
Is there any way to find out if and or how much you should be charged for advertising? Two dealers in my area keep saying $500.00. As many cars as Toyota sells in the U.S. if all dealers charged $500.00 per car then you are talking about taking in over 500 mil. for advertising alone. Toyota does not spend anywhere near that amount for advertising.

I would try to negotiate a price of about $50 per car if possible.
