#103 of 240 Matrix prices in Texas
Oct 17, 2005 (7:57 am)
I just bought a 2006 Matrix XR with Extra Value Package 2 and Mats. MSRP was $18,202. I live in Corpus Christi and queried all of the dealers in Dallas/FtWorth, Austin, San Antonio, Houston, and of course Corpus. Almost all of the dealers would not budge off of MSRP. Only a few would even give $200 - $300 internet discount. Champion Toyota of Austin offered $16,973 price and I went with them.
TTL put it up to $18,253... their document fee was $50. This was an awesome buying experience. They do a very high volume and the place was very crowded with people picking up their cars. I highly recommend them! Also, they did not require a deposit......
After I had already made the deal with Champion in Austin and was waiting a couple of days to pick it up, Cavender Toyota in San Antonio offered me the exact same selling price. Don't know how they are about document fees.
It's very funny that Champion Toyota of Corpus Christi were total jerks about the MSRP price since it's one big corporation. The guy there had the nerve to tell me that they HAD to stick with MSRP because they are selling every car before they get it and they just can't get enough cars.... yeah yeah yeah....
Anyway, Go Champion, As long as you go to Austin!!!!

You're welcome! I used CarsDirect to get my quotes so you get the "internet" price. It may be better than walking up to a salesperson.... I don't know.

I purchased a 2006 Toyota Matrix XR 2wd for 18,700 in July. Here are the options we added and it had to be factory built:
-Extra Value package #2
-6CD w/6 speakers
Unfortunately we still haven't received the car. I finally had to put in a call to the regional office about this. The person from the office was great. She told me the truth about why our dealer wouldn't give us a delivery date and said she would personally put in an order for a car if the dealership did not improve how they were handling my sale. I should have my car by the 2nd week of November. If you plan to purchase a car in the Triad area, stay on top of things. I've had horrible experiences with two dealerships already.

Edmunds lists this car for 15700 invoice. Are there other options you have but didn't list?

I put this entry someplace else here, and now see it's better placed here.
In case anyone is thinking of buying one of these critters right now, here's the price and model I just got today.
Base Matrix 2006 (Manual tranny) (2 wheel drive)
(optional equipment as defined by window sticker)
All weather guard....$250
Power windows & locks...$980
Total price to me, delivered, including Oregon plates,
Be aware, I only wanted the rear window wiper option. But was stuck with buying this other stuff cause there isn't a lot to choose from. ( I positively HATE power windows!) Got stuck with Silver color when I wanted Red or White, also.
Went thru an Auto buyer in Portland, and got the rig inside a week.
Took her out and about today, and am proud to say; everything seems to be in order and working. So far, so good.
