Bought V6 AWD Base + some options from Twin Cities MN area.
I don't mention the price since it was a trade in and therefore what I paid has been factored in to the trade.
What I can tell you is that the 'smart target price' of a popular car value site is accurate. Most of the dealership in the area don't like to haggle. So, I haggled up the value of my trade. That way I felt I paid something closer to Invoice of the SUV.
I did visit both Walzer and Burnsville Toyota. Walzer had higher sticker price, however the car comes loaded with perks like free car washes, gasoline discounts etc. Burnsville had the lowest sticker, however did not have the same perks like Walzer. So, if you are in the long haul, perhaps you will make few hundred bucks by going with Walzer.
The service was like day and night between the dealerships. You feel good to walk in to the Burnsville dealership and speaking with the sales. Walzer felt like going to a Sams club and getting a vehicle.
My take on the Highlander:
It is fun to drive.
However I hate Toyota for not paying attention for finer details. I see no design evolution towards 2010 from the previous generation.
The door controls are a pain to reach since you have to bend your wrist to access them. Some of the controls aren't self intuitive and really small. The lavish options were never a turn on for me for the price you pay. The MPG sucks. still better than Pilot.
I test drove Rav4 (loved it) and Venza (hated the ride). Also test drove older CRV and Highlander.
I am 90% satisfied with the purchase. Toyota would easily have tried to satisfy other 10% with some little effort and smart thinking.

Hi everyone, I'm in Houston area and looking to buy a Highlander SE FWD. The MSRP for the one i'm looking at is $33897. One dealer offer me $33200 (blizzard pearl color) for the drive out price and another offer $32890 (silver), is that reasonable? I made an offer for $32250 but they both turned it down.
Please let me know if these prices are reasonable.

It depends upon what you're getting for options on it but for a basic SE FWD in Houston the target price should be about $1800 below MSRP.
#4487 of 5207 0% APR on Highlander
Jul 27, 2010 (9:36 pm)
Right now we have 1.9% APR on Highlander in the Kansas City area while some other model has 0% APR. All this end on 08-02-2010. With other make offering 0% APR, I'm thinking Toyota will still offer incentives after 08-02-2010. I'm hoping that they will offer 0% APR on the Highlander. What do you guys think?

We bought a 2010 Highlander for $29996 plus TT&L on July 22 at Milham Toyota in Easton, Pa (nice buying experience). The sticker was $32,951. It is a 4WD V6 with the cold weather package, 6 Disc CD, and the Extra Value package 2 and a moonroof.
It's quite an upgrade over my 2003 Jeep Liberty Limited which we sold. It's smaller and has a smoother ride than my 2007 Honda Pilot. It is a lot easier to access the third row in the Highlander (than in the Pilot). The keyless entry control is separate from the key was disappointing because I thought the newer key fobs were becoming standard on most cars. Also, the lack of XM installed was disappointing, but I knew about that coming in.
My wife initially wanted either a RAV-4 or a Ford Escape. We didn't like the fact that we could really feel the road vibrations in the floor when we test drove the RAV-4 and the Escape didn't seem to match the Toyota quality, although we could have saved a couple of grand.
It's my first Toyota and it already made a five-hour trip with my family.

Just got a 2010 Highlander Base V6 AWD (MSRP 31748) for $27186 before TTL from a dealer in the Boston area.
No trade-in. Also got 1.9% financing and 2 year free maintenance.
I think I could have pushed for a slightly better deal but decided my time is limited and going thru the negotiation is just a torturing experience.
