In me experience the ealry Ravs did not have the Q packages . On the Fitzmall site the early cars had all the options listed individually.
I think when Toyota saw they were having a problem selling these cars they started the Q packages and the sticker said $2000 discount on it .
If you check the Vin numbers, I think any car without the Q package is a very early build and has a $2000 higher MSRP for comparable equipment when listed separately.
I found my car with a MSRP $30,929 at Fitz with the QY and MSRP $32xx,xx for an identical model that was produced earlier, with RL SR LA JBL RADIO etc separately . That is the point I am trying to make

If I could figure out how to PM you on Edmunds.com, I would. But, I can't find any link to PM you. I do have all the numbers for what we're going to get. I've contacted a few local dealers this weekend, I heard back (with their best numbers) from one so far. Just can't figure out how to PM on this site.

#2743 of 4032 RAV4 Limited with 3rd row seating
Mar 17, 2009 (6:37 am)
Did anyone get or see a RAV4 Limited 4wd with a 3rd row seating? On Toyota's website I do not see a way on how to configure a 3rd row with a Limited. ( base model only ).
Does such a configuraton exsists, or is it special order only?

Here we go - I PAID for the Consumer information regarding the 2009 RAV4!
MSRP Base = 21,500 (add $745 destination charge) TOTAL = $22,245
DEALER PAID = $20,848
Consumer information said to start negotiating $20,418 - I'd say you got one heck of a deal! Right now $500 cash back offer but keep in mind - I quoted only BASE - there are 6 LEVELS of this vehicle - Base being cheapest - the others are as follows:
Sport $23,955 MSRP; $22,437 Dealer invoice (sug. start price $21,973)
Base V6 $24,280; $22,748, $22,277
Limited: $25,235; $23,641, $23,151
Limted V6: $27,155, $25,438, $24,910
Keep in mind - There are dealer holdbacks ranging from $430 - $528 included in the sug. start price for negotiating and I did add in the destination charge on all above $745).
Also keep in mind - you'll NEVER find a base model. They all have something added to them. The QV Base L4 Extra Value Package is $108/$120 and includes 17' alloy wheels, roof rack, privacy glass but I did notice some OR in the literature also has daytime running lights and I think car mats. It can all be very confusing when it comes down to the actual price of these.

I read online somewhere to avoid the 3rd row seating - uncomfortable and not user friendly - but I do not know this from personal experience.

I bought my car at Penn Toyota of Long Island.
You can Google them.
Stay away from the woman salesperson is all I can say.
Try any of the guys as I am not allowed to give out names or phone numbers . Sorry no PM possibilty?
Contact them By email and if you get the woman refuse to do business with her. Ask for sales manager or someone over her, to get another salesperson . I had a problem with her being very pushy and the sales manager asked me if I wanted to change salesperson when he saw I was going to walk out .
I feel certain that if you have a resonable price , and they have the car in stock you will be able to do business with them, as long as you stay away from the Witch ! LOL
The sales manager came down $500 in price , from what the Witch said was his absolutely best offer. Talk to him directly if you can
Let us know

Turn the headrest around - you'll find it more comfortable.
The dealer did that right off before I test-drove it when I said something about how uncomfortable the headrest was.
