2008 Highlander Sport 4x4 Cypress Pearl/Grey Leather Interior
Options: tow, homelink, cold weather, convenience, mats, 50 state emmissions
Sticker Price $36635 we paid $33700. We got the rails and mud flaps and a tow hitch for the price of the tow hitch and got a very good deal on our 2001 Highlander Limited trade. Best deal? don't know, but based on Edmunds.com we got a good deal.
We purchased from Acton Toyota, Acton MA. Worked with Bill Morrissey. Things went so smoothly it was completely painless. This is our second vehicle from this dealership and are very pleased.

Congrats paquette. I hope to be joining you in ownership by the end of the year. By any chance is your first initial "A" and did you formerly work in DE?

Considering I saw almost a dozen highlanders on their lot (in Green Bay) about a week ago; it's about time the prices are starting to drop. I don't know the invoice price, but that seems pretty fair. Did you consider doing a special order? Anything good or bad I need to know about working w/the Green Bay dealership or buying the highlander there? Did you buy a warranty? How much/for how long? Thanks, Scott

I should have made it explicit that this is a purchase order/special order from a vehicle not in stock. This dealership has outstanding reputation in Northeast Wisconsin and Upper Peninsula of Michigan for the consistent quality of its services, beginning with sales: the customer is number one and you can save yourself time and thousands of dollars by contacting dealership at their website and use their internet consultant to get the best price available: no plays-and-games, dealer add-ons, "processing" fees, and other gimmicks. I can always obtain Toyota Platinum-Plus warranty through dealer or at internet prices: this dealer doesn't push add-ons. Toyota Platinum-Plus warranty is available for up to 7 years/100,000 miles and provides $0 deductible plans at very reasonable prices. This warranty can be bought anytime within the first 36 months of ownership. If you know what you want, your best bet with this dealership is to use their internet manager to get a deal on a vehicle configured exactly the way YOU want. Everything can easily be handled over the internet and many of my friends who buy their Toyotas from this dealership only show-up in person on the day of delivery to sign the paperwork and drive way. For those out of state, Green Bay has excellent airport and you can easily arrange to fly to Green Bay, pick up your new car, and drive home a happy buyer knowing you may have saved thousands of dollars and had an enjoyable purchasing process.

Lots of money down to the drain...I've done some reading here before buying extended warranty. I ended up paying $560 for the same warranty (Platinum Toyota Care $0 deduct 7year/75K miles)from Toyota Midwest Super store in Kansas. Cancel yours and buy it from Toyota Midwest Super store. Call them and talk with someone from finance department..
#2659 of 5207 2008 Higlander Limited 4x4 quote - is it a good deal?
Sep 22, 2007 (6:55 pm)
Got the following quote from a dealer in Twin Cities, Minnesota:
2008 Limited 4x4, with GPS Navigation (NV), Heated Seats (HD), Power Moon Roof (SR), Power Rear Door (PB), Auto Rear Air System (QR), Rear Spoiler(RF), Tow Prep Package(TO), All-Weather Floor Mats(2R), and Exhaust Tip by Valor (E5).
Price (before TTL): $37,334
I checked some Web site and found that the invoice price for the above configuration is $35,525. Since there is a $683 dealer holdup, so the real dealer cost is $34,842.
Is this a good deal, considering the supply/demand etc.?
