I am getting quotes for 2011 Highlander and 2010 Highlander. I have used AAA and Costco car buying service in the past. The best discount service I found was on www.ebay.com. Do a search for the type of vehicle, such as 2011 Toyota Highlander. When you get the list of cars for sale, they also have a "build your own" price listing. For 2010 Highlanders I was getting quotes below invoice, some $500 below some up to $950 below invoice in Southern California. For 2011 the price is usually about $500 over invoice. Then send quote requests to several dealers internet department. The internet groups offer the lowest prices. My current best 2011 Highlander price is a few dollars below invoice. I live in Southern Calif, but also requested quotes from Phoenix and Las Vegas. Phoenix dealers have a lot of 2010 Highlanders and offer very good prices. Take a little time on the internet, save a lot of money. Good luck!

#4590 of 5207 2011 2WD Limited Highlander *Virginia*
Oct 27, 2010 (11:25 am)
Purchased a 2011 Metallic Grey Highlander Limited 2WD with the following options in SE Virginia:
(NV ) NAVIGATION SYSTEM
(CT) Carpeted floor mats
(WL) Wheel Locks
Sticker Price $38,940
Invoice Price $35,589
Sell Price $35489 + TTL
So $100 under invoice.
Looked at a 2010 also, but they wouldn't come down enough in price. Plus, I really like the changes they made on the exterior compared to the '10.
This is our 2nd Highlander. Still have the 2002 running strong.

My top 2 choice of SUV for now are RX350 and Highlander. Primarily due to reliability and ride (sorry 4Runner).
I would like to save money by getting the Highlander. But how much with I be saving?
I am looking at basic RX350. Leather, power lift gate, V6, keyless start. . . .
Highlander seem to be discounting $3K to $4K discount.
So how much difference is there between the RX350 and the comparable RX350?
I am in a greater Dallas area. I've been to 5 Toyota dealers and they all seem to be sleaze bags. Whereas Sewell Lexus, where I know I'd be paying for their fancy showrooms, they treat you like a king before and after you purchase the car.
Roughly how much will I be saving to put with the sleaze bags? Or anyone can recommend me a dealer.
I am willing to go to Austin, and even San Antonio if they treat me right.

I am pondering between highlander and RX350 as well. I am offered $1000 off the invoice price for a SE 2010 highlander with little negotiation plus top dollar for tradein. My experience in the Lexus dealership was much worse. I had to negotiate for a long time then had to contact through email and phone call. At the end, they provided a ok deal for trade in and $2500 off the invoice price which is $1000 higher than the invoice price on Edmunds.

Perhaps I need to look at pre-owned RX350. We got a really good deal several years ago on a demo model on ES330.
Most ES and RX owner do not abuse their cars as they canít really be raced and handle the corner like the sporty BMWís and Audiís where I was told to never get pre-owned European cars.

#4595 of 5207 2011 Highlander Ltd 4x2 Blizzard Pearl
Nov 01, 2010 (10:56 pm)
Bought a 2011 Highlander Ltd 4x2 Blizzard Pearl this weekend in the Houston TX area. We got it with Sand Interior and JBL & Mats options: MSRP: $36,915 negotiated it down to $33,552. We really like it... that is except for the black trim on the bottom of the car. Actually thinking of taking it to a body shop to get it painted to match the rest of the body. Was quoted $500-$600. We'll see if it doesn't grow on us. We also purchased the WeatherTech Digital fit liners and really like those as well but if I could return them I would get it in the tan color instead of black.

Seems like a good price xtian97sc2. Have you (or anyone else) noticed that the seats on the 2011 (w/leather) seem to be a bit stiff? The 2011 I just bought is for my wife, but she's asking me to drive it for a few months to try and 'work in' the seats. I know this is to be expected when buying a new vehicle, but they do seem more firm than previous new car purchases...
