Will do. Our tax rate is 8.75%, so yes, you did get more off MSRP than I had calculated (the difference being the extra tax). The tax rate reflects the city you live in, not the city of the dealership. So, if you live in a city with a 10.25% tax rate, then you pay that tax rate regardless of where you live.
You might want to try Toyota of Temecula, which is offering $2000 off MSRP any model and see if you can get them up to $2300 or so off MSRP. Then, bring the quote back to Longo for a match.
I'll let you know how my week goes.

YES! This happened to my car as well. On 7/11/09, my 1991 Audi 80 Quattro was listed with 18 mpg combined, now it is listed at 19 mpg. I didn't know exactly when it changed, but you saw it change on 7/25/09, so mine apparently changed on the same date. Have you found any other references to these changes? Any other info?

Hi Don, there are several consumers who have had the exact same experience - from 18 MPG prior to the 25th, to exactly 19 MPG on the 25th. You can check it out in our discussion titled Cash for Clunkers - Does it Work for You?

Thank you, this was very helpful. The twenty-two thousand you paid was OTD right?

That was the price of the rav itself- Minus trade, Plus 5% tax, + title and transfer of tags ($110) and $250 doc fee.
Base model is fine fo our needs, We'll be ordering Weathertech mats soon. We've got them in our Sienna and love them. Best investment I've ever made in a car accessory.

Okay, finally got the car...
FWD Sport Model 4 cylinder with Leather Premium Package, Back-up Monitor, QX Value Package, and Mats. Sticker was $27,074. Price agreed upon was $24,700 minus the $500 factory rebate = $24,200. This is before any taxes, licensing, ect.
On top of this, we used the CARS rebate. So total OTD was $21.8k or so....
This was about $500 below invoice.
I'm not so sure that good deals are going to stay though, I know the dealer I went to sold 96 cars over the weekend, and 2/3 of them used the CARS rebate. If demand stays high and inventory drops, it will be hard to negotiate a price below invoice.

I just purchased this same SUV here in Kentucky for $26,073 OTD. The dealers like to play there little games with ďmy manager said this and thatĒ but if you persevere you can get a great deal. If you not in a hurry to purchase the vehicle I would wait until the end of the month or even better the quarter and they will come crawling back to you with a deal of a life time. Good luck and I hope you have a better experience with the car than I did. Itís been in the shop more than itís been on the road.

Wow....that's a awesome deal you got out from the dealer. Which dealer do you brought from? I know I got mine for $400 under invoice from LONGO. I was consider to get that package similar to your but I changed my mind and ended up with a base with 3rd seat/bluetooth. Let me know which dealer is it. My cousin might be interested this weekend to but one too.

Any advice about RAV4, prices in southwest Missouri? I tried 1600 below sticker but dealer wanted full price which I found quite funny.
