I worked with Justin Elliot at Jim McNatt Toyota in Denton, TX. The only dealer in the DFW area that could get me into 90% of MSRP area. Fantastic car, great buying experience. You really have to get bids from all over to get the best deal.

#4454 of 5207 Highlander Hybrid Limited buying advice
May 18, 2010 (6:37 pm)
Anyone purchase a highlander hybrid limited recently? We looked and were quoted a base price of 41000 - before any of the options. Looking at trueprice, the invoice is 38934. Realistically, how close can I expect to get to that? The options I'm hoping for are the navi and the extra value package (dual a/c, rear a/c) - according to the toyota website that's an extra 4305. Should I expect any break on the options? Thanks in advance!

I got a quote for Base V6 AWD for $27925, which is 3495 below MSRP. Do you think that it is a reasonable deal? thanks.

#4458 of 5207 Highlander Purchase - Taken for Long Ride
May 21, 2010 (9:11 am)
I would like to share my recent experience with a Northern Jersey Toyota Dealer.
On April 3rd, I finalized the deal for a 2010 Highlander/ Green color/0% APR/60 months. Clearly told the dealer that I was there because of 0% APR, went through the credit check and paid around 2000$. Rather, I thought I had a deal. Dealer couldn't get the color but promised to get it within few weeks. After a week, I was told that the dealership has placed the order with Toyota and will get in last week of April. Then I was promised the vehicle in the first week of May. I was calling every week to follow up and visited them even once.
I was told during one of my calls (May 17th) that we are getting the highlander next week but that there is a small issue. Yes, I can get it only at 2.9% - because Toyota has changed its promotion and it is Toyota's problem.
I went in person and met a senior manager who had the most ridiculous attitude. He couldn't answer my basic question - Why wasn't I informed about this issue in all these 45 days? He argued that I wouldn't have done anything even if I had known. Sure, I could have chosen my second color of choice and availed Toyota's next promotion - 0% APR for 36 months on Highlander (till May 4th) – worst case at the same dealership.
As instructed, I called Toyota and spoke to a friendly representative. She heard my story and clearly said that the dealers are responsible for executing the promotion. As per Toyota, I should have driven the car out of the lot before end of promotion to avail the 0% APR. She was surprised that nobody in the dealership told me that – not only on April 3rd but for the next 45 days.
Toyota gave me a case number and the dealer’s Customer Relationship manager is supposed to respond within next 3 days. Two days gone and I am yet to hear.
Pondering on my next move. Appreciate some feedback.

You gave the dealer $2000 for a car that didn't exist. I'm afraid you'll have to finance on whatever terms are in place the day your car finally arrives. It's not right, but it's what will happen.
