#134 of 240 Is This A Good Price?
Aug 22, 2006 (1:18 am)
I went to a Toyota dealership in South Jersey and I was offered a price of $18,548 for 2007 Toyota Matrix XR 2WD with the following options:
QP: extra value package #2(Includes 16" x 6.5" aluminum alloy wheels, sunroof, cruise control, steering wheel mounted cruise controls, front driving lamps and front and rear underbody spoiler)
EV: AM/FM in dash 6 CD changer
AB: Antilock brake system
CK: all weather guard package
FE: 50 state emissions
CF: carpet floor mats (4pcs)
The price of $18,548 includes destination charge but not tax and other fees. Can anyone tell me if this price is reasonable or if anyone brought a similar car with this price?

Can you tell me just the price of the car? Since I am in San Francisco, I think the sales tax and all associated fees are different. Here is what I am looking for. 2007 XR 2WD AT with options FE;BE;EV;AB;and QP. Getting quotes of 18451 and 18713 so far.

I am in San Francisco. I am looking for 07 XR 2WD AT with the following options: FE:BE:EV:AB:QP and Z1. So far, got quote of 18751 and now it is 18451. Got another at 18963 and now at 18713. These prices are thru the internet. From my experience, it does not hurt to counter them back with a lower offer (100 to 300 dollars). The worst you could do is that they will tell you no. Let me know how it works out. I am still working on my XR.

It worked out to between 17,900 and 18,000 before taxes.

Is it worth it to get the post purchase items like
Undercoat, weather protection, etc. etc.? I live in the Mid-Atlantic.

Went shopping Labor Day weekend. Could not find any XR's with my options. The dealer checked inventory and no dealer within 100 miles had the car I wanted. Anyway, was also looking at Civics but ended up with an 2006 Accord EX-L w/navi I4 4 door sedan at a very good price.

From reading other postings, all that extra stuff the dealer tries to sell is pure profit. Check in other forums and search for dealer add ons.

Good to see that you are in the US.
Prices in Canada seem high in Canadian dollars compared to US dollars.
I just bought a 2007 XR Matrix. (Traded in my 2003 XR Automatic Transmission)I explained in more detail the reasons for getting another Matrix at the "compare Matrix and Vibe" forum.
Cash price before taxes etc: $24031.00
After freight taxes etc: $27133.88
I also installed an after market rust proofing electronic device (Sold by Toyota for $700) which I bought at CTC for $200. Check their bumph at : www.counteractrust.com - Still a rip off in my opinion. I am doing an experiment to verify its efficacy.
I am posting details on a blog at: http://automobile-rustproofing-black-box.blogspot.com/

so down here in texas, i was shocked to learn that most vehicles don't come automatically equipped w/ ABS. i know it's an option, BUT it's something that has to be specially ordered...the dealerships don't just get them w/ ABS. i think this is weird, but we got a production change and we are getting a white XR w/ abs, manual transmission, package #2, side curtain airbags, and sunroof wind deflector for $18,750. not bad according to the research i've done. it should be here by the end of this month!
