#3255 of 4032 $2000 rebate?????
Feb 27, 2010 (9:30 pm)
I just got back from my local Toyota dealer here in Oregon. The sales guy I talked with had only been there a month so was not up to speed. They had 10 RAV4s in inventory and most had a $570 rebate listed on the window sticker. It didn't actually say rebate but I can't remember the exact words. There was one Limited model that had just come off the truck and it had a $2000 figure in place of the $570 figure on the others(some were Limited models too.) So maybe this is something new for March. If I can get them to give me the Fitzmall price, less $2000 in rebates, I think I will be driving a new RAV4 soon. Of course they will have to let me order it the way I want it with the right colors and options. Maybe too much to ask. Time will tell.

#3257 of 4032 Want to buy a Toyota RAV4 in Sacramento
Feb 28, 2010 (11:46 am)
We are looking at buying a Toyota RAV4 4-Cyl FWD Limited in Sacaramento CA area w/backup camera (BC),and QY(Extra value). We would like to get factory rebates. Not a lot available w/backup camera in N. CA. Also, CA doesn't seem to be offering those great $1000 rebates that some bloggers are talking about. How about if I take a Southwest airlines flight (cheap) and fly to one of the other states, like Oregon or Texas?

Cherelle, I would wait until this coming week to see what Toyota has up their sleeve in terms of rebates. I think $500 rebates have been the norm all over the country, not counting any loyalty, college, or military rebates. I don't know what the rules are for them.

Gads, you can't be too careful. I went back to the Toyota dealer to check out that window sticker that had the $2000 deduction from the MSRP at the bottom of the window sticker. One of the options was the QY Extra Value Package which was listed as having an MSRP of $3480. According to Edmunds, the MSRP is actually $1480. So then they deduct $2000 at the bottom of the window sticker and call it an Extra Value Package bonus or something which leads one to believe that they are saving $2000 of MSRP because of they are selling a particular option at a discount. Seems like this should be labeled false and misleading. Your average buyer would never think to check the actual MSRP of the options listed. I can't believe this is legal. Is this common at other dealers?

I have been talking to a dealer on and off for the last 2 weeks. He can't seem to get that I won't be buying a car unless the price drops. All dealers are like that though I guess.

That looks like a very good price. Be sure to take advantage of the new incentive for March. You can finance it all with 0% interest. That is like getting a $2000 rebate.
#3263 of 4032 RAV4 Limited V6 - Good price?
Mar 04, 2010 (1:56 pm)
I have the following quote for a 2010 RAV4 Limited V6 4WD with Limited Extra Value Package, Tow Prep Package, Rearview Parking Display, 5-piece Carpet Floors and Cargo mats
MSRP - $31,099
OTD price(including all rebates) - $25,600+tax, title, documentation.
Is the above a good price? Also the title fees are $30 and documentation fees are $250. Is that reasonable?

There are no rebates right now except for the college and military rebates. If you don't qualify for either of them, your OTD price is a couple of thousand below the dealers cost. There must be something wrong with the car or the dealer. No dealer will stay in business very long selling at such a large loss. The title and documentation fees vary from state to state but the numbers you mentioned sound reasonable.
