According to Edmunds, the true invoice price is $24,516. My experience is that Toyota provides customers with "funny" (too high) invoice numbers. Nevertheless, by my calculation, you are purchasing the car for about $50 under invoice. I think that is very good. I would be very happy if I could get that. You are in California, right? Whereabouts?
Also, what is the $2000 rebate? DO you know anything about it? I haven't seen anything on incentives for 2009s.
I think you are doing great. Good luck.

Yes, I realized that Edmund shows $24,516 as invoice, but the dealer read out the invoice line items and it had additional items like advertising fees, etc.. which I think makes it more than the Edmund's invoice.
I'm in California bay area.
Regarding the $2000 rebate, I think its actually dealer cash incentive. Some 2009 models do have incentives ($500 for base, $1000 for sport, $2000 for limited) although certain packages are excluded. Edmunds does show the details in TMV pricing report page in the Incentives row at the end.
For e.g, for the Limited model it shows:
$2000 Cash to Dealer start: 12/02/2008 end: 01/05/2009
Restrictions $2000 Dealer Cash is available on a new 2009 RAV4 2WD Limited 4-cyl (model #4450) NOT equipped with options QY and TH.

BTW, I wanted to get one with Third Row seats (TH) but since it is excluded from the incentive, I had to go for one without the TH.

Just brought a 2009 RAV4 AWD Base with QV on a price I felt comfortable in purchasing. It was 23350 OTD w/ mats and wheel locks. Here's a simple breakdown:
21800 + TT + 99 processing charge = 23350. Thought it was an okay price to price.
