#9084 of 12158 Re: 2009 Sienna for $29,800 OTD with 1.9% for 60 months [carbuy3]
Apr 21, 2009 (5:57 pm)
The toyota pricing was given me in person at Jone junction in blair. At that time i only stopped into see what type of pricing i would get. During my visit i did not confirm is this was with financing, it is not than i would not buy. I am still waiting for the dealer to call me back to confirm that this price is with 1.9%. if it isnt, i would not pay anything more than $30,000 OTD with financing if they want your business.
i have decided to buy the Odyssey EXL w/dvd and nav and the price i got is GREAT. OTD price for this is $31,330. I have confirmed this price 3 times today over the phone and is good till end of april. The only addtional accessory this car has is wheel lock and mud guard. Even i think this price is too good to be true. I plan to purchase this by Friday. If you want please email me your name with phone number and i can give it to the sales rep and see if he wants to offer the same price.
email at badtaamiz_2000hotmail.com and mark the email with "Odyssey pricing URGENT".
I can give you the dealer and sales rep name once i purchase it so you have a solid lead and can confirm what i paid.

The local Toyota dealers insist they can NOT order a base Sienna XLE with no extra options.
Moot point because a Honda dealer is discounting the Odyssey EX $ 5,197 and the EX-L $ 5720 while Toyota dealers price for the NON available base XLE would be $ 28,788....$ 3,860 more than the Ody EX.
Since the Ody EX is very comparable to the base Sienna XLE with no options, a new Sienna is NOT in our future.

Apr 21, 2009 (8:43 pm)
I'm looking to buy a new Sienna XLE to replace our 2001 Honda Odyssey. We test drove the alternatives, but it came down to the Sienna and the Odyssey and we just didn't like the Odyssey as much.
We've decided on the XLE with the JBL stereo, bluetooth, etc and EVP #3, rear spoiler, 17" alloy wheels, parking assist, and floor mats/sill protectors. The sticker price is $34,535. I can get this through a prenegotiated service with my bank for $31,254 but I think they'll come down a bit on the price.
Do you think I'm being unrealistic to ask for and out the door price of $30,000? If so, what do you think is a realistic price?

IF Toyota dealers weren't too greedy, they should accept an offer of $ 28,500 based on comparable price of $ 28,125 Honda dealers are asking for a comparable 2009 Odyssey EX-L.

The dealer's cost on the Sienna had little to do with the cost of a Honda Odyssey, and more to do with what they pay Toyota for a Sienna. They compete on pricing with other Toyota dealers.
To answer your question, I do think your offer is too much of a low-ball.
These pricing services are pretty consistent and while I think you probably can beat it, it would be by a few hundred, if that. Not thousands.
You didn't mention your state, but here in MD tax is 6%, so you're really only offering $28,300 (tax would bring the total to $30k) when the no-haggle price is $3 grand higher.
That's not realistic. The dealer would take a massive loss on that sale.
That is a very well equipped van - Bluetooth, premium audio, parking assist, etc.
If Honda is giving away the Ody it will put pressure on dealers to reduce their already razor-thin margins, but they are not going to lose money selling cars. They have to pay their utility bills just like we do.

Thanks for the feedback. One thing I absolutely hate is the negotiation involved in car sales/buying. Of course, the salesman was trying to undercut me initially on the trade in, but then as that improved they didn't want to budge on the sale price of the car. He got flustered when I wanted to negotiate these numbers independently.
I may go in with this number, knowing it's low, so that we have a starting point from which to work up instead of starting at MSRP and working down. For some reason, I feel like I'm likely to get a better deal this way. That may or may not be true, but that's how it feels to me.

Joe, who posted in previous posts that he got a LE 8 passenger with EVP3 for 27.1k out the door (if he did the financing), well, i just wonder how recent a deal this was (Castle toyota doesn't even exist anymore). I've talked with every dealer in the mid-atlantic area that has this vehicle and nobody can come within even 1k of this deal. So here you go people, thrive off of the hard work i've come to find out, that in the mid-atlantic area, if you want an LE 8 passeng. w/EVP3, the best deal you can get, out the door with md 6% tax and still have the 1.9%, is 28,800. The only thing i can think is there are very few of these vehicles around (which is true), so the dealers don't have to budge? Or does my caller ID show as 'stupid idiot' when they pick up my calls? If people get a deal like this, please contact me with the dealer/salesman

I went aftermarket for the DVD as well.
A factory 7" or 8" screen usually runs about $1800 or so.
I paid half ($899 installed) that for a whopping 12" screen. Plus I got 2 wireless headphones and it added a dome light for us.
I got a Nuvi as a GPS as well, just $199.
