I also used other addresses for my truecar.com search that were within 200 miles. I live in NC, and I had a dealer in SC give me a deal that was about 1400 less than invoice on my SE model for a 2012. The local dealers off of truecar.com were only going 500 less than invoice. Since they knew I could drive to the other dealer in SC, they matched that price. Just FYI.
I still got the deal when I got them to snag one that recently made it to port, and I was able to get exact colors I wanted and accessories. Also, the accessories are jacked up about 30 percent on sticker tag as to what the dealer paid. I do not believe in paying extra for things that you do not want on your vehicle. You can do your own searches on most of the toyota distributors pages to see what will be available in the next few months on the exact models and features. I am in the southeast toyota region, so yours may vary.
My cost for a Toyota Highlander 2012 SE V6 2WD with Floor Mats and Toyota Guard was 31944 before my state taxes, tag, etc.

Most of Texas, doesn't have a very good haggling market. I can get the vehicle equipped like that for about 38,000 to 38,500 in NC. I looked it up for a few cities in TX, and it was running about 39,800 with your options. Unless you are looking at going out of state, 40,000 sounds right.

I bought my FWD V6 Toyota Highlander SE with the tow package (need for V6) floormat/cargo mat and Toyota Guard for a final price of 31,940. This includes all dealer fees, but not TTL (this can vary per state). I am in NC, and I was able to get my dealer to match a SC price off of truecar.com. I love silver, but no dealership near me had any in stock. I was able to have my dealer arrange to get my Highlander with pretty much the options I want, and I got exactly the exterior and interior colors I wanted. They were able to secure one from the stock that had arrived at port, but had not been sent to any dealers. There were no extra fees to do this (no matter what someone may say). Look at Toyota's website and build what you want, then make someone match it for you. It took an extra week or two for me to get it, but it was well worth it. Why pay 30,000 dollars or more for something you do not love.
Your regional area prices may vary. I have learned that my area is much cheaper than most on Toyotas. Some people have had luck in going to other states, but that also depends on the laws in those states about taxes in buying the vehicle.
The price may change next month, but you never know.

Thanks, I think you are right. From what I am seeing, TX doesn't have these kinds of deals.
