#9112 of 12252 2009 Sienna LE 8
May 04, 2009 (9:56 am)
I appreciated the info I was able to gather from this forum while shopping for a 2009 Sienna LE 8 passenger, so I thought I would share how we fared.
We are in southern Indiana. We were seeking the above model with EVP #2 and daytime running lights (RL). We have purchased it for $26,165 OTD (approx $24,200 without TTL).
We only have one Toyota dealer who is local, but I solicited e-mail quotes from 13 dealers within a 75-mile radius. Initial quotes ranged from $26,592 OTD to $27,667 OTD. (Note: only 3 of these dealers had the LE8 on the lot. The actual options/packages with the quotes varied somewhat, but all had at least what we asked for and usually the towing prep package, too, for a minimum MRSP of $27,200. All quotes mentioned below are OTD, so include all tax, license, fees, and rebate.)
I contacted the dealer with the lowest quote, from about 70 miles away, by phone to see how much lower he could go, and he offered $25,865, which includes the $1000 rebate. I then phoned three other out-of-town dealers to see who could beat that. They all were very dubious at this quote, and expressed skepticism that it would really be honored! (I know from this list that this quote, at least compared with other regions, is good but not by any means incredible, though it seemed to be considered a stretch in these parts.)
Only one of the three that I phoned actually lowered his quote from $26,886 to $26,401. Finally, we went to our local dealership in person to do one more test drive and discuss a purchase. We showed him the lowest quote and asked what he could do. He came back with $26,165 OTD. It was $300 more than our lowest quote, but we decided that the savings in time not to go to the out of town dealer was worthwhile.

Look at my previous post:
Working "backwards" to subtract the difference between your desired options we have
LE8 evp#2 $24000
less 1 seat -$150
less evp#2 -$383
add evp #1 +$185
Total $23652 is what you ought to get it for (maybe even a little less).
This includes the $1000 rebate incentive.

#9118 of 12252 0% through June 1st on Sienna
May 12, 2009 (5:48 am)
They have this month 0% APR for 36 months on the Sienna. I was wondering, would it be possible to get it for 0% for 60 months instead, without them inflating the price, of course. Also, how much below MSRP should I shoot for? The one I like has a MSRP of $32,320. It's FWD, 3.5-Liter V6, XLE 7-passenger, 5-Speed Automatic Extra Value Package 3 with Options. Thanks for any input!

I am also looking in NJ at a Toyota Sienna Limited 7 passenger AWD. Do you know how much I should pay for it?
Thanks in advance

Quick answer is no - they can't just change the finance terms like that for you without offsetting that extra cost somewhere else.
They may be able to give you a low rate for a 60 month term but it won't be 0%.
I'd get a rate quote from your bank and maybe a local credit union and then ask them to match or beat it.
Negotiate the sales price on the van seperately. People here are driving away in XLEs for $29k out the door, even with tax included. Yours might have more options, though.
