#4463 of 5207 2010 highlander SE V6 price
May 31, 2010 (8:34 am)
I am in the process of buying a 2010 highlander SE, V6--no other option. A dealer gave me a price something like this: $28,000 + tag, title, etc.
The dealer took the toyota's $1500 cash back, so the price should be $29,500. He also took my $1,500 Trade-in car. So the final price of the highlander is: 29,500 + 1,500 = $31,000 plus tag, title etc.
Since he took the toyota's $1500 rebate I must take 2.9% or up interest loan depending upon my credit score.
Is it a good price? How could I negotiate-- any suggestion on pricing or any discussion would be very much appreciated.

apwalsh & carolina2: are your prices for the 2WD or AWD? There is about a $1500 difference in MSRP when comparing the two.
As for me, a dealership called and said that I won. They are going to sell me the car at my price, which was invoice. In the end, I got a 2010 Highlander SE, V6, AWD, with carpets/mats, and crossbars for $32,267. They did however, make their money back in the paint and leather protection that I bought for 1k.

I am looking to get the Body Side Moldings (to decrease the chances of door dings), and Running Boards (to help people get in, appearance) on my Highlander.
A question to all: will Running Boards act as Body Side Moldings? Do they stick out enough to prevent door dings?

Purchased at a dealership in MD.
DISCOUNT OFF MSRP: 5,500
PLUS tax tags and $100 doc fee
4 MD dealerships were willing to go more than 5,000 below MSRP while negotiating via internet. Most threw out an offer of 4,800-5,100 below MSRP to start. One dealer offered 5,800 below but had an additional dvd system. Some variance with doc fees (100-250), tag fees (275-500), and mileage (15-215) so make sure you get the total price before committing.
Dealers in NJ and NY were all 1,500 to 2,500 more. They were willing to sell at invoice but not any lower.

It was AWD, with all the usual, mudflaps, mats, crossbars. I also had bluetooth added in. Have not purchased, yet, trying to get a little lower before I bite.

My friend is near to deciding on a vehicle, and the Highlander Limited V-6 AWD is what she's most interested in. The MSRP is $41,870, what would be a good offer to make to the dealership here in Portland, OR area?

Go to Fitzgerald Toyota's website (Fitz is located in Maryland) for a low, benchmark price. Fitz is a "no haggle" dealer that consistently sells Toyos (and other makes) at a very good price. Use this price to guide your negotiations with other dealers.
ps. I have no affiliation with Fitzgerald.
