#1569 of 2055 Quoted price
Sep 10, 2007 (11:39 am)
Hello, everyone. I need everyone's feeling on the following price.
I registered with CarsDirect.com, requested to get the price on Toyota 4Runner 2007 4x4 auto, Sports Edition, the website notes $28,207(??), rep calls me and tells me they have one available for $29,805, with taxes, documentation fees and registration fees it would come up to $32,500. Do you think this is a good price, should I go with it or try to play negotioation games with dealers and hope to get a better price.... Let me know, my email is i30RLSaol.com. thank you.

If you're considering getting a 2007 4-Runner (no trade in), your target price should be invoice less any current Toyota incentives. I'm on my 3rd 4-runner, and I've done ALOT better selling on my own, than trading in (one less point to negotiate). Know your market. In Northern NJ, there are Toyota dealers a plenty, so they want to move whatever 07s they have in stock. Prestige Toyota lists the invoice on their website. I did everything over the phone: invoice - rebate + 7% NJ tax + $7 tire tax + $149 doc fee + 4 year registration ($351). No other costs (window etching is a scam: you can do it yourself for $15 via internet). Also, if you have excellent credit, you should opt for cash back, and negotiate the TMC financing. I was given a ridiculous finance rate. Then I got my own financing, and all of a sudden the TMC rate came down. There was still a few $100 difference (over the life of the loan), so they threw in a dealer accessory to make up the difference (I guess they get "points" if you finance through TMC). I don't get into "holdbacks". Although car dealers created this market place where consumers can negotiate final cost (try doing that with an expensive item from Niemman Marcus), they should be entitled to make some money, so I don't get into the holdbacks (which, from what I've read, are in the 2-4% range).

In Sacramento CA I paid $100.00 below invoice before incentives, for a 2007 4-Runner Sport 4x4. Maita Toyota was very prompt to answer my emails so they won my business. One of the dealers in the area tried to sell me a 2007 4-Runner at MSRP. I laughed and explained I wasn't paying MSRP for any vehicle. He said Good Luck and hung up the phone.

I have 500 miles on my new 4-Runner Sport w/V-6, hitch and a couple other factory installed options. I'm pretty pleased. I picked it up the week before the Labor Day weekend. $300 over invoice and $2000 cash back from Toyota. Total price was about $30,365 out the door or $5,149 below sticker. No trade.

I have couple of questions to ask you regards to Prestige dealership experience.
One of the questions is after they provided you with the invoice, was it different from what they show on their website?
Did you negotitate?

Hey, all. After a month of research finally purchased my 4Runner Sports with extra options it comes. Haggled the salesperson at Rockland Toyota, New York to $30,499, rebate was not included because I took special 1.9% financing for 48months. Took the car the same day. Negotiation process was brutal, we spent 4 hours from the time we walked in to the time we drove out. Before going to Rockland Toyota, we went to Ramsey's Prestige Toyota in New Jersey, they had the car we wanted, the salesperson gave us the price they gave me over email and they wouldn't budge on the price. And in the end when we were about to leave, he told me to stop, and I am thinking he will give me a better price, instead comes over and tells me to buy the car for lower price at the DisneyWorld. They were very unprofessional, so me and my wife just walked away. Anyways, I am happy with price that we got from Rockland Toyota, since it seems to be average value for the car.
I used carbuyingtips.com to do all my research and used their scenario excel spreadsheets to double check numbers, and everything worked fine. So if you are looking for 4Runner, go to Rockland Toyota and talk to the salesperson Marc L. he had a good attitude and was willing to negotiate with us and the manager. Oh, and finance manager wasn't trying to sell us anything additional, so the paper work Any questions, let me know.

In the future, drive over the bridge and go to Toyota City in Mamaroneck. Simple negotiation for a reasonable price we could live with. Also the service department is real good. Would definitely go back.
