#2951 of 4032 Are there many Toyotas sitting at the dock
Jul 31, 2009 (12:30 pm)
I flew into Portland, OR., several months ago and could see that the docks were full of cars. I notice now my local Toyota dealer's inventory seems very low. There used to be someone one in this forum that worked for Toyota at the Portland docks and he knew a lot about what was coming in. Wonder if he is still here. If inventories really are low everywhere and with this clunker program, things might be a little tight for a couple months. I may be interested in a RAV4 soon but maybe it would be best to wait for the 2010 models in late September. The big change in the RAV4 won't be until 2012 so a 2010 model should be ok.

Has anyone actually used this service to buy their new RAV4? How did it work out?
#2953 of 4032 Dealer forgot to add 1000$ new grad rebate
Aug 02, 2009 (5:28 pm)
I just bought a new car on Sat, after coming home I was reviewing the papers and realized that the dealer had not put in the 1000$ new graduate rebate/credit that was agreed upon during negotiation . What are the next steps, how do I go about getting it add now. I hope the dealer doesn't back off now ? Thanks for the advice.

What credit? The dealer does NOT have to pass on any credit to you that was not agreed upon during the negotiation phase. Have you agreed to some kind of credit that you later noticed that they didn't apply, or did you just find out about this credit after you closed on the car?
If you closed on the car, and then you saw an available credit, you are SOL. That stands for sh*t out of luck.

Just go back to the dealer and let them know about the College Grad Rebate. They don't apply the college grad until they receive all the necessary paperworks. Then they send them to Toyota Corp to get approval before they credit you the $. By the way, what model RAV4 did you purchase and how much do you paid OTD before the college grad???

The 1000$ credit/rebate was agreed upon during negotiation but the paperwork that has the selling price, title fees, etc, doesn't mention the 1000$ new college graduate credit/rebate ?

Bought a RAV4 I4 Limited 4x4, car price 26800 + title + taxes + doc fee. With the 1000$ graduate credit the car price should be 25800 and it should be listed in the contract / financing paperwork, right ?
#2958 of 4032 Getting a V6 4wd Limited soon...
Aug 03, 2009 (2:06 am)
I am planning on getting the V6 4WD Limited Rav tomorrow as the sale ends tomorrow...my local dealer has downpayment matching and also the 3.9% for 60months financing.
They have the sticker price of $30169....am thinking for offering $28100-$28300 what do you guys think?
It comes with the QY package which is the first package with moonroof, leather, 120v, JBL speakers etc.
Might have the carpet and mat for $199.
Also this price I am offering should be based on the invoice including the $800 destination charge. The tax, and registration and doc fees would be added extra to the $28100? I said this price as I checked edmunds and kelly for the TMV (market value price) ppl are paying in my area.
I was also wondering if anyone knows what incentive would come august 4th? I hate to have buyers remorse Lol. Right now its 3.9% at 60months....Did or will the Rav4 get 0% apr financing?
