Toyota RAV4, SUV
#2852 of 4032 RAV4 in the Bay Area
May 03, 2009 (4:51 pm)
I am in the market for a 2009 RAV4 and here is a quote I received from a dealership in the Bay area:
2009 Toyota Rav4 4WD Ltd V6 in Black/Ash interior (model 4453)
FE - Emission
BC - Integrated Back Up Camera
QZ - Extra Value Package included Navigation, Moonroof, JBL Stereo
TO - Towing Prep Package
CF - Carpet Floor Mats/Cargo Mat
DK - Preferred Owner's Portfolio
MSRP - $31554.00
Dealer Invoice - 29,426.00
VIP Sale Price - $29,926.00
There is a cash incentive of $1,000.00 for the Rav4 which ends May 4th, 2009.
I've asked why this 'incentive' suddenly ends tomorrow and awaiting a reply. Question is if this is a good deal or not? I think the OTD purchase price should be no more than $28,500 based upon what I am seeing. What do you think?

TDA is short for Toyota Dealer Advertising a fee that Toyota adds to the invoice price.

I am picking up a new RAV4 in a few days. I added:
Body Side Molding
All is well except the dealer doesn't want to give me the cargo mat since I am getting the Cargo Tray. I thought it was a 5 piece set. Even though I'll have the tray, it sort of bothers me that I won't have the cargo mat as well to match the others.
What do you all think? Can I buy the cargo mat separately to match the other 4 pieces? If so, where and how much do you think it would cost? Maybe I should take the mat and buy the cargo tray myself?
Thanks for your opinion.

I have already put down a deposit for the car. For $300 more, I get a Remote Start, cargo net (not the same one as it comes with the car), and the 5000miles maintenance service for free. It came out to be $28k even.
I finally agreed to that price because there are only 3 dealers in my metro area, and 2 of them have managers who came out and told me off immediately when I offered $27.5k. Also, I'm getting the color I want with only options that I wanted instead of all the added stuffs I don't care for.
Overall, I know 28k is not be the best price out there but I'm very happy with the decision since a month from now, I get to drive a brand new car instead of continue to drive the old car until a "great deal" comes along.

If you add things up you got the good deal. Remote Statr (~300 to 400) + free maintenance. This will make up for the few hundred that you are going to pay.

what???? you mean they are goin to increase the corolla incentives s version past $1750? That is INSANE!

local dealer says Rav4 rebate goes from $500 to $750, financing stays at 3.9%. not much of a change.
looks like almost everything else they make but the rav gets 0%. corolla is listed as $1000cash or 0%/60 months
