Toyota Avalon, Sedan
#1514 of 1559 I was this close...
Feb 27, 2012 (10:07 pm)
I've been thinking of a new Avalon, a 2011 to replace my 2008. I'd called several dealers in the N Virginia, Western Md area. I want 1 in zephyr blue fully loaded.
I had a deal from the dealer in Tyson's Corner, Va. 32,654 + TTL. The sales rep told me the car I wanted was sitting in the showroom, just waiting for me. I leave the house about 30 mins later. I get a call from the salesman, that car is already sold. They can offer me a couple other colors for that price or a different blue 1 for 1k more.
I told him no thanks and went back home,

What was the sticker price? Truecar.com's price? I think it's good you missed it, you can do better on price. Is the price you got including rebate? Aim for at least 22-23% off MSRP.

2/29/2011 Avalon Ltd, fully loaded. 34,651 - 1,500 cash back = 33,154 + TTL.
I only wanted the Zephyr Blue. I tried dealing with 6 different dealers, this was the best offer I could wrangle. They didn't cheat me on the trade-in either. Just what Edmunds said it should be. 26k financed at 1.74% for 60 months.

Congrats on your new car, I been enjoying mine.. except the power window is not full auto on my driver side... hopefully this is just a minor hiccup.. heard electrical problems can get worse..
So what was the MSRP on your Zephyr blue? I see the cash back is different for your region, here in Socal it's $3000 back.. That's a great financing rate with the cash back...Mine was either 0% or $3000 cash back.
