Thanks isodyok for being supportive and providing your valuable suggestions on every aspect, truly appreciate it.
Yes, I was torn between the demo with 6K miles and a new 1 that was only $317 more but when I factored in dealer proximity and fact that the demo has engine immobalizer and tow prep package I thought that might be a better value down the road, we don't expect to put a whole lot of miles on the car.
Yes, sienna chat is a excellent forum - I did get the 1040 quote from Midwest and am now waiting on Doug's quote - the finance guy at my dealership said he can match any quote so I would just hopefully trim the warranty I bought at 1540 down to atleast 1040 hopefully !
Thanks again and I hope I will contribute more to the forum.
I have 2 more questions about the Sienna -
1. Are there different floor matts for the Sienna / Minivan's or the regular ones would work ? I got some from Sams Club and they seem to fit if I trim them a bit but was wondering about this.
2. Since I have LE not XLE with fabric seats that are light grey color and will be driving with 2 kids are there any good seat covers I can buy to protect them from spills/accidents etc ?

Welcome. Given your deal is with 0% APR I think it is reasonable. The two-prep is a factory-only option and is good to have when needed.
(1) Only mats that are custom-fit for the model would fit neatly. I am looking to replace my carpet OEM mats with all-season ones before the winter. I heard good reviews about hexomats that cover all of 2nd & 3rd row space just exposing the tracks for sliding the 2nd row seats. People at siennachat like these compared to OEM all-season mats.
(2) I have the same "easy-clean" fabric-trimmed seats and two small kids to test them. Had not looked into covers yet, so please post if you come across something that are custom-fit.

Just purchased a 2012 Toyota Sienna LE V6 MSRP (313xx) from DCH Freehold Toyota in NJ. Bought it OTD for 29700. Process was relatively painless. i think the purchase price before tax was around 274xx. I think this is the lowest in the central NJ area from experience from emailing back and forth. Made a trip out to Dayton Toyota earlier, large selection of vans, but great unwillingness to negotiate. Thanks for the help through the posts guys!

Firstly, thanks to everyone for the informative posts. I was able to get a 2012 Sienna LE V6 for 26,700 (excluding taxes and title) in Fayetteville, AR. The dealer was unwilling to add any packages (like towing prep or all-weather mats). Tax is approx 6% in AR, which I will have to pay once I get my registration papers in mail 2 weeks from now. The dealer was very nice and gave me 4 color options. I went with the Silver one.

I'd really love to get some advice on getting the best buying price for the Sienna I want. I'm looking at 2011 and 2012, XLE and LTD. With the XLE, I'm OK without the Ent. Package, I figure we watch way too much TV at home, do we seriously need it in the car too? Talking is a good thing for families to do.
I'm looking for front wheel drive, 6cyl, leather interior, full safety features for the kids. I was reading that some of these safety features are add-ons, not sure if that's true or not, but fact remains that I'd not be driving a minivan unless I had kids, both of whom I'd to protect by owning a rolling pillow ! Without the kids, I'd be ripping it up in a Cobra!
So, I'd love to hear some advice, I'm getting all kinds of dealer talk, I'd like to make a smart purchase.
I'm a bit worried about the used market because I'm replacing my Jeep due to the repairs it needs - my father has owned his own garage for 40 years, he's gotten too ill to keep it going and I don't want to ask him to work on the cars anymore, he just can't. I'm super worried about paying all this money for a used van and then being back where I am now, needed a mechanic.
I would very much appreciate your feedback. I don't believe in reinventing the wheel, I'm totally appreciative of buyers who've gone before me.

Congratulations, seems like prices in NJ and Chicago aren't as great as Boston, Phoenix etc.

Congratulations !! Can you advise if the 26,700 price was after $1000 Toyota rebate or without rebate ?
I bought the car at ~ 27, 700 and was wondering if this is due to rebate or is there really a $1000 price difference between IL and AR prices.
#12052 of 12159 2013 SIENNA LE 3.5L FWD 8 PSGR: Is this a good price?
Oct 07, 2012 (11:34 pm)
Can anyone please tell me if $28,795 before tax and fees is a good price for a new 2013 SIENNA LE 3.5L FWD 8 PSGR? It has the following optional equipment.
Carpet Floor Mats/Door Sill Protector
Door Edge Guard
Anti-theft System with Alarm and Engine Immobilizer
Towing Prep Package: Includes Engine Oil Cooler, Larger Radiator and Fan
Do you think I could get this car for less? And if so, what do you think is the lowest price I'd be able to get this car for? Thank you in advance for your help.
