#4196 of 5207 2010 Highlander Ltd 2WD EVP#7
Dec 31, 2009 (2:59 pm)
Wanted to report our price and experience.
2010 Highlander Limited
Extra Value Package #7
Power Rear Door
Towing Prep Package
(plus rear bumper protector and sport-styled rear spoiler, which we didn't want)
Out the door price was 34,533.60. This included a $499 doc fee, taxes, tags, inspection. "Selling price" before doc fee, taxes, tags, inspection was $32,900. MSRP was $36,589.
We received e-mail quotes and this was one of them. When we went to purchase at this price, the dealer said he had made a "huge, huge mistake", saying he was looking at 2009 incentives. Therefore, the price was going to go up $1,000 from his quote. We walked and opened a case with Toyota Corporate regarding not honoring their quote. We were contacted by the dealer later that day saying they would honor the quote.
Signed the papers and wrote the big check. Car is scheduled to arrive Monday, 1/4/10.

I ordered a Sport model 2 months ago and was also told that the SE was replacing the Sport. However, I don't think that's true. If you go on the Toyota website, you can still build a Sport or an SE. The SE, does not allow any changes or packages. It has certain things that come standard (ie. leather). I'll post my buying experience soon. I don't have the paperwork in front of me.

I am looking for 2010 Highlander LTD AWD with package8 + tow package and spoiler. I live in Twin Cities area (MN). I was given a quote for 36,552+tax+title+license. Is this a good quote?
If anyone bought a similar model recently in Twin Cities area or in Wisconsin can you let me know the price.
I was given a quote for package 7 + tow + spoiler for 34,465+tax+license.

I am getting a quote for $37,400 plus processing fee, taxes, tag for a LTD with EV8 and Tow and rear spoiler and carpet/cargo mat. Is this a good price? I think its on the high side.
Also, the dealer does not have the color I want but wants me to put down a deposit. Never been in this situation before always seen the car before putting money down. Appreciate if anyone has advise on how to ensure I get the car I paid the deposit for.

I don't even know what EV8 is.
An hour ago I picked up a Limited that I'd put a $300 deposit on the day after Christmas. It pretty much has everything except the rear entertainment system. The ordering process involves detailed written descriptions that are signed. They showed me the stock number and specs on the screen, but no VIN was available so it probably hadn't been built for all I know. I tried to give them $100 cash, but they requested $300. Sigh, they'll take a check for nearly $40k(includes $1100 tax and $395 fee for screwing the license plates on, etc.), but think $300 is more meaningful than $100 to somebody buying one of these things.
They knocked a couple grand or so off the sticker and then forgot to add the XM, mud flaps and exhaust tip when they prepped it today. Hey, if I don't like the last two I can take them off. I love XM. I'm taking it in Monday after work and driving a loaner home. The sales guy is new and very easy to get along with.
I really, really wanted black rubber mats, but they're not available. I got "free" carpet for all three rows and the rug for the back. WeatherTech here I come. Could just turn the carpet over I suppose.
I'm thinking the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400s are going to have to go. I read the reviews. I need tires that excel in sudden blinding downpours on the Interstate, especially on 81 with the heavy truck traffic.
#4204 of 5207 Would a dealer sell a 2009 as a 2010?
Jan 07, 2010 (10:20 pm)
We are in the market for a 2010 V6base. A dealer has agreed to sell us one for roughly 26.7k and includes the extra value package and some other extras. The sticker says its 2010 but the MSRP has 2009 pricing (27,600 vs. 27,750). How can i tell that I am actually getting a 2010- the pricing is lower than area competitors and i am a little suspicious.

Any recommendations for an honest toyota dealer in the CT-NY-NJ area? Looking at a highlander specifically. Thanks!
