#9829 of 12250 2007 Toyota Sienna Limited ...(53,500 miles)
Jan 23, 2010 (7:28 pm)
It is loaded (DVD, Nav, Parking sensors, Rear camera, ... )... certified pre-owned .... but the asking is almost 27k. Feels hard to justify that amount given its mileage, but it is in outstanding condition. I think it should be more in the 24k ballpark but the Edmunds TMV says 29k.
I think if I pay over 25k I'm a sucker. Does anyone have any advice on a price for this car?

If it feels wrong to you then its not the right price for you......
re: DVD and NAV - I believe those are always options on the lower trim cars ie you don't have to buy a Limited just to get DVD NAV.
We all KNOW its Feb for the 2011s - its plastered all over the Net. Cynically I could say that a salesman wants you to buy the car he has there TODAY and therefore doesnt want you to know that a NEW! model is coming in just weeks....but its probably just that they are clueless/uninformed/whatever. Even though I didn't let on, it was obvious that I knew much more about the 2011s than the guys at the dealership I was talking to, and that was after about 2-3 hours of surfing the net and reading a few reviews and forum posts.....

Just bought a certified pre-owned 2010 Sienna LE today for $22K. Has only 18K miles on it. I think I did well (right?) and am guessing they were looking to clear inventory with the '11s coming in next month. I was actually surprised they accepted my offer (was listed at $23,980, which they told me at the dealership was the internet price and $1K less than the price on the lot; didn't really impress me).

If that was OTD you did ok. LE new could be bought for 23 to 24K. If it cost 22K plus taxes, etc. then someone did good and got 18K miles at a low cost.

Nobo, it depends on the options as well. 23k to 24k will get you an LE, but not with a lot of options, right? The best I could find in my area was 25,350 OTD for a new LE with QF, RL, AL, CF, FE. There is no cash back in my area, but there is 0% for 36 months. Still debating between 2010 and 2011.

Sorry, my best quote was 25,350 + TTL for a 2010 LE with EVP2, 16" allow rims, floor mats, daytime running lights and 0% for 36 months. Given the MSRP for the 2011 LE V6 (with all these options and more) is 28,900, I think I will wait until the 2011s come out.
If I could find a dealer willing to sell to me at 23-24K, I would go with the 2010. But they are just not getting that low in my area right now.

Not sure what OTD stands for ? It is a certified pre-owned 2010. The dealership owned the car and used it as loaner - hence the 18K miles. That didn't scare me off since it was certified and I'm getting all the warranties, including 3 year comprehensive for 2010 vehicles. I was happy with $22K plus taxes and inspection, dmv fees. Total cost $24K. Haven't seen any other listings come close. Should probably stop looking now that I've bought !! : )

OTD = Out the door, i.e. including taxes and fees.

We have an 05' 8 passenger and what you get currently is three seats that are not as wide as the 7 pax with Captains Chairs, but all three are comfortable.
The 2011's change that dramatically. They basically just 'Add' a 'Sliver of a Seat between the Captains chairs, think 8 Pax Honda Odyssey. The new middle seat is very, very narrow and won't take a child seat.
When we bought ours new in 05', we really wanted the Honda because at the time, the Odyssey had been out a while and the Toyota was more money for less equipment.
The Clincher for us, was the true 8 passenger of the current Gen Sienna's Seating vs. the 'Sliver seat in the Odyssey. Now that the '11 Sienna's are out, they too have switched to the 'Tiny thin seat design'..
I really want a new 11' SE as it looks great and handles really well, but with the new 8 Pax seat layout, I think we'll hold onto our very trouble-free 05'.

The Dealer would go as low as 26k. I passed. Just didn't feel right. And I heard a 'run flat' tire horror story today. Needed 5 sets of tires in 6 years.... with rotating every 5 thousand miles.... Each set is $1200..... I think I'm officially pushed away from the Sienna after hearing that story.....
