#3176 of 4032 Is this a deal?
Dec 29, 2009 (10:24 pm)
I got a quote from a dealer on a 2009 (note: 2009, not 2010) RAV4 base V6 FWD
The dealer offered me $22,500 – $1,000 college graduate rebate = 21,500 plus TTL (Drive out 23,189)
Is this a good deal? Thanks!
2009 Toyota RAV4 Model - 4431 5-DOOR 4X2 SUV
MSRP: Base:$24,390; Installed Options:$1,637; Total:$26,027
Installed options total invoice price: $827
truecar.com factory invoice without installed options: $23,207 (if I add the $827 options then it will be $24,034)
Edmonds invoice with destination charge but without installed options: $22,803 (if I add the $827 options then it will be $23,630)
Why there is a ~$400 difference in the invoice price for this car without any installed options between truecar.com and Edmonds?

Looks like you got your car around or below the invoice price.
Thank you for sharing the info!

Part of the price difference may be due to the advertising fee found on truecar, not sure if Edmunds includes that fee or not.

We are in the process of buying the same vehicle at a local dealer. We are getting the tow package and a hitch and wiring harness installed for a total of $22,760. That is the price without our state sales tax of $300 and title fee of $30 so with those two items it will be $23,090. The only problem is that our original deal involved a dealer trade and for whatever reason, the dealer who had possession of the car indicated that it was no longer available after we had a signed contract. UGH! Our dealer is now trying to locate another vehicle for us. If I had to do it over again, I would simply request a factory ordered vehicle and forget the whole "dealer trading" ordeal.....it's torturous.

I'm the market for the same car and apparently it's the V6 Based FWD is pretty rare so I'll be interested how you do. There are plenty of V6's in the Sports trim but 90% are loaded with a ton of options like leather and backup camera which pushes the price way out of the affordable price range for the same engine. Have a look at American Express (http://amexnetwork.zag.com/main.html) since their price is about ~22 which is about right.

Our dealer found us another one....base FWD V6 5-Spd and will be available to us in about 20 days. Since we had traded in our other car and the initial car we had purchased was no longer available, they are being super nice and giving us a loaner until we receive our car. How great is that? The base models are hard to get...we did not want any options other than the tow package....no car mats, nothing.....we are getting a hitch and wiring harness....that's it. We can't wait to get our RAV4!!
#3183 of 4032 Discount from MSRP
Jan 01, 2010 (7:44 am)
I see many messages here with a mulitude of answers as to what you each got off of the asking price. However, many are hard to interpret, at least for me.
I went to Trucar.com and found for my particular model a FWD V-6 Limited with the options choosen:
TruCost Factory Invoice TruAverage Sticker Price
$28,160 $28,688 $29,253 $30,502
Is that about what you all are getting on your deals? i.e. $1,249 on average and a Great Price of about $2,342 off MSRP
It appears to me that there are no what I would call fantastic deals. With little off of MSRP.
It would nice to see what deals people were getting if we all spoke the same language about how much off MSRP did we get. Then it would be simpler for simple minded folks such as me to compare the deals gotten.

I went to TruCar.com and for our 2010 Rav 4 FWD V6....we paid $831 less than the great price, $1265 less than the factory invoice and $2325 off of the sticker price. This was the best deal from 3 different internet sales departments and we are very happy. Other things also come into play too.....they gave us the most money for our trade-in which was also a Toyota but a Corolla. So our total out of pocket costs were also less with this particular dealer. We had an extended warranty on the Corolla and we already cancelled the warranty and received a prorated refund which we are going to apply towards our new vehicle. As was previously mentioned in a prior post, the RAV4 V6 Base models (4431) are not that readily available....we did not want all the bells and whistles that the other versions came with.

I bought the car from James Toyota in Flemington NJ. I recalled that I was quoted 27,250 initially. I checked back with the sales person in the following 3 weeks to find the car I want remains in their lot. That helped me to persuade the dealer to sell the car for 26,717.
