#2360 of 4032 RAV4 V6 2008 LIMITED
Oct 14, 2008 (5:59 pm)
I'm in the same boat. I want the limited with the same options as you only my first choice is the blizzard pearl (which is 200$ extra). Lowest quote so far is 28,676, then there is a 1000$ rebate( in PA) so final 27, 676 + tax(NYS) and tags. The rebate is a Toyota rebate so they aren't losing on that. I too am thinking they should be wanting to get rid of 08's, they have a lot on the lot. Seems high to me especially when someone above got an 09 for 28,266. Keep us posted and let us know how low
you get, I'll do the same. Good Luck

Could you tell me where you got this from asap? Did that include any rebate? That's what I'm trying to deal on. I got 27,676+tx but that is with a 1000$ rebate instead of financing.

See my post #2336 from last week regarding the details of my recent purchase on a V6 4x4 Sport. Here are the quicj financials from my transaction.
Paid: $25500 (including $1000 rebate & excluding TTL)
Total discount: $4144 (13.98%)
Amount below invoice: $582
You did not indicate if your offers included the rebate. If so, their price is way too high IMO. My vehicle also has the higher end (EJ) JBL radio and (WL) wheel locks which accounts for an additional $569 at invoice pricing.
Fitzgerald Motors (Maryland) has a black Sport in stock with a 'no haggle' price of $25426 with the upgraded EJ radio. Here is the link to this vehicle on their website
I used thr Fitzgerald pricing as leverage during my negotiations.

Great reply from Kriebebw,
I used the Fitzgerald site t et leverage and here is a quote from a local dealer
2008 RAV-4 LIMITED 4X4 V6 MODEL# 4453 W/ FE EJ HD LA RL SR TO CF MF MSRP 31,033.00 INVOICE 28,275.00 LESS 300.00 SELLING PRICE $ 27,975.00 PLUS TAX 2,342.90 = 30,317.90 AND DMV 227.50 NEW PLATE FEES = 30,545.40 , LESS 500.00
CASH BACK $ 30,045.40 OUT THE DOOR.
If you remove the tax from the OUT THE DOOR price car costs $27,703 LOADED.This is from a dealer that originally started out at $1000 off a MSRP of 31,033.00 and said that was the best he could do LOL
You gotta negogiate harder,
You should be able to get 11% off your MSRP if you want to use that standard
#2364 of 4032 RAV4 LTD V6 2008
Oct 15, 2008 (9:01 am)
OK Got to 28,441 less 750 rebate 27,691.
tot: 30,033.78 otd plus tag and license another 200
What should I go back with??
Fitz was about 400$ less so far. Their rebate is 1000 so that accounts for 250 of it (but not exact car color I want)
Any help appreciated....thanks!

Well seeing as your first post was $28,890 you have made some good progress.
Whats the $67.50 for and $ 200 for TTL seems steep. Someone else who has bought jump in here and help. I think if you are going to accept the $67.50 and $200 tell them to split the $400 difference at LEAST , so bottom line $200 more off the price . (MINIMUM)

Yes. you gotta challenge that $67 doc fee per Mazda626atx. It is a B.S. add-on. Other dealers will even tell you not to do business with a dealership who charges these doc fees. The $200 for TL??? It depends on what state you are located. In PA, there are set fees yet I still had variable costs for titling & license ($138 - $193). So I would have to believe some dollars are being hidden & rolled into notary fees as well. I paid $153 plus my 6% tax and that was it. No other hidden costs.

just bought 2008 Rav4 Sport V4 4WD
+ 6Disc player
+ Daytime running lights +
+Carpet Floor mats/Cargo Mat
$25k + TTL w/ 0% APR 36 mo
Dealer originally wanted $26,774 but gave $1k "rebate" for $25,774. I negotiated down to $25k, dealer wanted $25,200. I stood firm and dealer gave in to $25k. Checked 2nd closest dealer and they offered $24,920 (slap in the face). Did we get a decent deal? Wonder how low we could have gone.

Grossinger City Toyota near North and Wells - It's part of the Grossinger Toyota Group. The guy I worked with is the Internet Sales Manager. I got near that price with Arlington Toyota and Continental Toyota as well as 2-3 more. All within about $200.
Grossinger was the first to guarantee me delivery on the day I wanted it.
I got pre-negotiated pricing from my Costco membership (which guaranteed me the invoice price), then shopped that price with the internet managers at a number of dealerships. That's how I got under the invoice price - even on a rare car like the third row RAV4. Actually the internet manager misquoted me the price on the car (did not add the 6 CD changer price) and ended up giving me the feature for free. I think I was $700 under invoice.
#2369 of 4032 REBATE AND 0% FIN.?
Oct 16, 2008 (5:32 am)
I'm seeing that people are getting the rebate and 0% financing, is this a given or was it something you had to haggle for? Thanks
