First off you don't mention whether it's 4WD or if it has the V6, but assuming it is and it includes the 1000 rebate then it's too high. If that's without the rebate then it's a good deal. I just bought a 2012 Limited 4WD V6 with Tow Pkg, Floor mats, JBL Stereo, and Roof Rack Cross Bars. MSRP was $39,366 selling price was $36,076 then the $1000 rebate. My out the door in Ohio with a 6.75% Sales tax and a $21,500 trade was $36,407. By the way, I don't think you can get the limited V6 without the 3rd row seating. So it's not worth mentioning for a standard feature.

Go to www.truecar.com it is the most accurate site I have seen for Dealer Invoice. Are you saying that you are not taking the $1000 rebate or there isn't one. The last I saw it ran through tomorrow 6/4/12. For some reason they have quit showing Dealer Hold back on that site. Don't know if it's just Toyota vehicles or all brands. I believe the price I paid before rebate was close to $500 under invoice. I would at least shoot for that.

you can get it at 1500 below invoice, walk away if they dont want to give it and go to other dealerships
#5017 of 5207 New vs. Used Highlander SE
Jun 05, 2012 (4:19 am)
Been in the market for a new Highlander SE and I've noticed that for about 10% more, I am able to buy new over a 2010 with 8k miles. Considering I am paying cash and plan on keeping the car for 7-10 years, should I even consider buying used? My options as of today...
Used: 2010 SE 4WD w/ 8k miles for $29,000 + ttl
People are reporting getting the same car 2012 model brand new for $32,000 +ttl
Thanks to everyone for posting their experiences.

In the real world you are not going to get it $1500 below invoice. Maybe $500 plus a $1000 rebate. Holdback is only like $850 which is $850 below invoice. The Dealer has to make some money. Not going to give them away at a loss. Not sure what alternate reality you are living in.

I bought a Highlander SE V6 AWD for 33659
msrp was 37161 invoice 33862. This is las vegas area, three dealers only 6 AWD left in the city. Looks like a similar deal. I'm happy with it. I think I could of beat on them for 500 or so more.
#5020 of 5207 2012 HL Base V6, 4WD purchase
Jun 07, 2012 (4:31 am)
Just bought a Base, V6 4WD with Tech, Cold Weather, Tow Prep, Cross Bars and All Weather mats (plus the standard carpeted mats) for $31,100 + tax in Nebraska. Financed at 0% for 60 months. I believe this to be about ~$900 below invoice. Had quotes from 3 different dealers competing against each other and went with the lowest one that also happened to be the color my wife preferred. Glad when that happens!

It looks like invoice is about $31,950 so you got a really good deal. Plus you got the 0% financing. Nice job.

Just bought a V6 SE AWD Highlander with Tow Prep Package, Mats, Cross bars. MSRP was 36971. Paid 32100(including 1k rebate) plus TTL. Hopefully we got a good deal.
