#9696 of 12250 2010 Sienna LE-8 EVP#2
Dec 20, 2009 (9:06 am)
I bought on Friday Silver Pine 2010 Sienna LE 8-pass EVP#2 + mats (CF).
MSRP $27780, paid 25200+taxes and fees minus $500 bonus cash (after taxes) with 0% financing for 36 months. 7.95% taxes ~$2003, registration & fees ~$463, doc fee $400. OTD price 27566.48. Plus free windows tint (don't know if they really do anything) and free maintenance for 1yr/15K mi. Right Toyota, AZ.
They silently added "security system" for $499 and VIN etching ("registration") for $299. I was sitting with my laptop and noticed it immediately. The manager argued that etching with registration is federally mandatory and money are going to DMV, but I knew it is a lie. They removed both charges. Looks like the security system for $499 is installed (there was a sticker saying that the car on the lot is equipped with security system) and they just disabled it.
I had a car for trade in, 2000 Hyundai Elantra with low miles and in good condition, but they offered only between $1250 and $1450. Their KBB printout shows $4K+ retail, so I decided to sell it myself.
#9697 of 12250 2010 Sienna XLE EVP#4
Dec 20, 2009 (6:48 pm)
We just purchased a Blizzard Pearl, XLE with EVP#4, Fog lamps, daytime running lights, de icer, 17" Alloys, Car mats for $32,000 OTD which includes a bs dealer charge of $580 but oh well. Would have been $31,000 OTD taking the $1000 dealer cash. I worked a lot of dealers in NC and SC trying to get a XLE Limited but couldn't pull it off at the price I wanted to pay so got this which is pretty close. One thing I found out though is you can get these configured about anyway you want. I think 10's will lose a bit of value as 11's redesign come out but remember the Sienna and the Odyssey are the best selling mini's on the market so the used market will maintain.

Purchased over the weekend, 2010 Toyota Sienna LE with EVP#2, Leather trimmed seats, carpet mats and keyless entry for $26400 ($27,350 OTD). Is this a good price?

I don't think that's factory leather, so it's hard to price that deal.
Looks like they're adding about a grand for the leather, though, so if it's good quality stuff (check the 3rd row, too), then I say go for it.
#9700 of 12250 Why buy 2010 Sienna when 2011 is debuting?
Dec 21, 2009 (3:18 pm)
I just had a query. Why are folks buying the 2010 Sienna when the 2011 is coming in feb? Surely close to 30kor 26k+ for the previous model is expensive. Why not wait for the newer version? The price probably will be the same, maybe 1k-2k more as they will sell closer to MSRP than invoice. And you can bet when the 2011 Odyssey comes out the 2011 Sienna will sell at or closer to invoice.
I like the plush comfy Sienna to the Odyssey,no debate really for me-- but it helps if the redesigned Odyssey is also competitive. Helps keep Sienna`s price under check.

In 2008, I bought a new toyota siena LE 2008, with package 1, for 24700 otd price(all taxes and fees included), very good deal, after doing my homework about pricing, etc...and a lot of negociating. All those fees that they want to charge you don't exist!!! except for dealer holdback, which is money that manufacturer pays the dealer after the car is sold."Dealer holdback is a percentage of either the MSRP or invoice price of a new vehicle (depending on the manufacturer) that is repaid to the dealer by the manufacturer".(from edmunds web site). They want to make money of you! Go to another dealer!!!

Couple of coments:VIN etching you could buy a kit for $25 and do it yourself.
(They were trying to make you pay for it, good you didn't fall for it). I still think "registration & fees ~$463, doc fee $400." it's too much. My doc fee, title and licence fee were about $220 when I bought my van last year.

What $1000 dealer cash are you talking about? Please share any information you have about such incentive. I have not heard or seen anywhere about this.
Someone also mentioned about $500 bonus cash in a post recently. What is this incentive? Is it in addition to $1000. Edmunds only mentions about $400 milatry bonus.
Your $32000 OTD price still looks great. I imagine from your post that you are in NC. Can you breakdown OTD price with price+TTL. OTD is really very subjective considering different states.
I have a quote for the exact same vehicle. XLE with option #4 and carpet mat, fog lamps, alloy wheels, special paint. MSRP $35005, my price is $30231 + TTL. I am not getting promotional rate of 0% though. They are saying its not possible with price and can do finance from outside bank for 3.9%. Is this good deal?
If I imagine your sales tax of NC is 5.5%. 32K OTD is still better price than mine. Can you share the dealership.

> Couple of coments:VIN etching you could buy a kit for $25 and do it yourself.
It is actually free at the police.
>I still think "registration & fees ~$463,
No, this is real title and registration we pay here in Arizona. This is correct, I took all the numbers from DMV site and everything matches.
> doc fee $400." it's too much. My doc fee, title and licence fee were about $220 when I bought my van last year.
Here in Arizona almost all dealers now charge $400 doc fee. Some charge $350.
10 years ago it was $99. They are really firm on this. You can walk out but the other dealer will charge the same. All you can do is to negotiate price keeping doc fee in mind.
