#3949 of 5211 2009 Highlander Sport 4x4 V6
Aug 22, 2009 (8:16 pm)
Just picked up a 2009 Highlander Sport 4x4 V6. Has the following options:
Black w/beige interior
Leather Seat Package
Power Rear Door
Extra Value Package #5
Tow Prep Package
Carpet/Cargo Mats for 3 row seating
Dealer Processing Charge: 100
taxes (3%): 1036
tags & title: 103.50
$750 Toyota rebate
So, 31425.5 out the door.
I used the USAA Buying Service, which basically gave me a quote for $75 over invoice at a particular dealer. I went to another dealer who said they wouldn't touch the price due to the way the Highlander has been selling. So I drove the 75 miles to the dealer with the quote. I actually went for the Limited, but they sold the one earlier in the day, and I settled for the above Sport. The Dealer's internet price on this car is $36087.

Your price is almost exactly the same as I paid for my HL Sport 4x4 V6, which has the same equipment packages. The only difference was that there was no Toyota rebate in my area(NY) when I bought it, and no C4C(but instead of trading in my old SUV, I was able to sell it privately so got the equivalent of the C4C amount). The state tax was different of course.

#3953 of 5211 Is this a good price for used Highlander?
Aug 25, 2009 (5:46 am)
I found a used highlander base 08 for $22K. It has 32K miles. Warranty for power train extends up to 100K. No tow package, I don't think I see anything extra on the vehicle.
It is a V6 4WD with third row seating.
Is this a good price or am I better off with a new one?

My 2008 has almost everything but the power rear door with only 12,000 miles and I'm selling it for only a few thousand more than that. Don't know if that's a good comparison for you or not.

Thanks for posting. I, too, got a similar deal on the same vehicle: $1100 under invoice. With my cash-for-clunkers, got out the door with tax, tag, title for just under $31K.
I just have to ask: where did you get the deal? Did you use a car buying service and a pre=negotiated price? Did you have to wait for the vehicle?
My experience was an absolute nightmare, even with a buying service. And I got the last Limited Highlander in before the end of the clunker program. I'm interested if my experience was dealer specific, or just the artificial "buyers market" created when Toyota cut back on production several months back...

This is one of the best deals I've heard on a 4X4 V6 Highlander. The best I could get was $28500 which was $50 less than invoice price. How did you arrive at this price $27,000? Did you take the $1000 toyota rebate? In midwest the deals aren't that good, the dealers are very stubborn here.
