#4963 of 5211 2012 Highlander SE V6 4x4 in NYC
Mar 24, 2012 (6:02 pm)
I just brought home my new SE V6. So far it's AWESOME!!! I also returned my 2009 RAV4 at lease end, a week early (lease end was 4/2/12). There was no equity in that car since I had an accident, so I couldn't turn it in early. I leased a Gray/Black Highlander with Tow Prep, Floor Mats, and Wheel locks (MSRP $36,823). I also added GAP waiver. But they didn't have in stock with black interior, so he had to find one.
He found my color but it had remote starter instead of wheel locks (MSRP $37,271). He gave me that one with not a penny more than the agreed upon price. An extra $448 in options free.
Tier 1+ credit
$403 + $5 GAP = $408/mo
Down: first month + DMV (transfer)=$533
On my lease agreement, the selling price is listed as $35,104, but they gave me a trade-in value of $1563 for my returned car (not sure why???), so my effective selling price was 33,541 (MSRP $37,271)
I leased from Star Toyota in Bayside (Queens), NY. My salesman was Anthony Cruz, he's a straight shooter and always stayed in touch, something I found lacking in most sales guys.

What is MSRP of this car?
Did you buy or lease?
You got in MD but what state are you from?

#4968 of 5211 2012 Highlander V6 SE 4x2 good deal?
Mar 28, 2012 (12:03 pm)
Hi is this a good deal? Was at the dealer late last night, and left telling them I had to sleep on it.
2012 Highlander SE V6 FWD 5-speed auto
Blizzard Pearl white paint
Black leather interior
Carpet floor and cargo mats
Cargo cross bar
Got them down to $32900 = discount of $2841
Edmunds lists invoice of $32563
Is that a good deal?
I see people on here pay about $1000 less than invoice??? Think there is still room to come down on my deal?
#4969 of 5211 USAA or Costco Pricing
Mar 30, 2012 (10:13 pm)
I live in WA state. Been wanting to buy just a base 4x4 highlander with the tech package. Really feel I have not been getting a good deal by talking to dealers. Was curious what everyones thought was in regards to the Costco or USAA pricing? For me, before tax, these services both are right around $30,500 before tax and licensing which is almost $3000 below MSRP. I have researched and seen the invoice amounts as well. When talking to the dealers this is the price they basically offered WITHOUT the tech package. Just can't justify spending $33,000 out the door and only getting the base base model with nothing extra.
Just curious on thoughts of the USAA or costco services though. Thanks.
#4970 of 5211 Can I do any better?

I am in the Charlotte, NC area and just had a dealer quote $36000 out the door price for a 2012 Limited Toyota Highlander V6 AWD with JBL AM/FM Package, Tow Package, and Cargo Mats Package. Should I keep looking a little more? Have had dealers that will match it. Is it a good deal?

Did the 2012 Highlander Limited Nav+Ent System come off the lot with running boards? I'm looking to get almost exactly what you bought but can't seem to find it in a dealership's inventory.
