I visited a local dealership for a test drive and gathering of information on the various models and packages. I spent over a week researching online -- calculating invoice prices, visiting dealerships' websites, and obtaining quotes for the specific vehicles that I'm interested in. Some dealerships were eager to get your business, others were not. I emailed one dealership that I would go in and see the car if they drop the price to X amount, and when they did, I kept my word and went in. Not much negotiating took place with me basically saying, "I'm still on the fence with X price, but if you lower it to Y, it's a deal".
In the end, I paid $27,785 (selling price, not including tax, fees, and junk) for a 2010 Toyota RAV4 Sport 4WD V6 equipped with LA, SP, BD, QX, TO, RM, CF, and B3. Didn't qualify for the graduate discount, but I did take advantage of the 0% APR for 60 months.

Prices in Seattle are always higher than national averages but got a black limited 4 cyl 4WD with mudguards and backup camera for 27239. 30072 OTD with 0% APR for 60 months. Magic Toyota in Edmonds, a painless buying experience. Woot!

That website is awesome. Unfortunately, I'm not an AMEX cardholder - but I can become one real quick. The price quote on the website is about $1,000 less than the quote I got from the dealer.

#3317 of 4032 0% Financing Offer
Mar 19, 2010 (7:42 pm)
I was disappointed that Toyota declined to offer me 0% financing. I bought my new vehicle in mid-February, which was after the acceleration issues made the news, but before they offered 0%. I feel they should have offered it to those who believed in the company enough to buy a new car in that time span.
#3318 of 4032 Seems like a great lease deal?

I've done a lot of research and visited a number of dealers, but this seems like a no-brainer?
