College grad program is through Toyota Financial Services. You have to finance a portion of the purchase through TFS. You have to have graduated within the last 24 months or will be graduating within the next 6 months. You must have proof of current income or proof of imminent income (acceptance/hire letter from employer). You can not have any negative credit history. There can be no exceptions for ANY of these requirements. If you don't necessarily want to finance with TFS, that's fine, set the loan up through them and when you get your first statement, just pay the loan balance off then.
Hope this clarifies things.

Thanks for the info Ken. I graduated from college within the last 24 months, however I didn't want to finance through TFS because the rate they were offering me was 8%. So I financed through my credit union at 2.9% for 36 months. I didn't think of initially financing with TFS and then refinancing.

You're welcome. When did you purchase your vehicle. If it was in the last day or two, they may still be able to set that up for you. I'm sure you're going to enjoy the new RAV regardless.

I purchased it last Saturday, July 23rd. However, just today I signed the loan paperwork at my credit union and received check to give to dealer.

I am getting worse quotes in the Atlanta area-higher than Edmunds.
I am asking for 2005 Rav 4 with roof rack, and hitch only-no packages and getting between 20,900 and 21,600. Also, they told me the JBL speakers don't really exist and the salesperson would not come down. Out of frustration I added the "L"
package without leather and got quotes for over 23,000. I have walked out of two negotiations. Anybody with experience in the South?

I have never seen a RAV4 with a hitch. I did not think they had any towing ability. Maybe if it's a 2 wheel drive, but those prices seem very high for a 2 wheel drive. I have seen advertising for 2 wheel drive for as low as $17,500 in NYC area. Try fordhamtoyota.com and check out their weekly ad.

I think its rated for towing at around 1500 lbs - so you could tow a motorcycle trailer or something small like that... Anybody have any ideas what I should offer for a 4WD with keyless entry, roof rack, privacy glass and alarm? I've got such divergent figures - most notably, the Toyota website vs. the car's window sticker... Edmunds reflects the website figures (and, CarsDirect too, I think)... Window stickers are running about $600 more! YIKES!

The hitch is mostly for adding a unit to hold bikes. But thank you, I will look on the website

I did actually figure out where the difference in price was - $900 wheels! I don't know why I didn't notice it, but I didn't. I'm hoping because they fall in the realm of "accessory", I can get the dealer to switch them out for the standard wheels... Deducting that, the price seems more reasonable with the invoice price - including floor mats - at $20,621. I wonder if anybody gets below invoice in So. Cal.? I sure could use it!
