#3406 of 3966 2010 Rav4 Base FWD in Virginia
Jun 21, 2010 (11:09 am)
Helped my sister last night in buying her new Rav4..ironically she went in to buy Camry..I asked her to looked into Rav4 also..she loved it...and decided to buy it instead of Camry...she had 2005 Honda Ody with 87K to trade...she bought from Koons Toyota in Fairfax...
Here's her deal...
2010 Rav4 Base FWD Final price 21,000 + Dest+TTL
Trade in 10,850
She financed at 2.9 for 60 months from Toyota Financial
They tried to sell her usual GAP ins, Extended warranty, 4 year oil change blah, blah, blah...but I shot them down pretty quickly...overall good experience...sales person was very nice and courteous...took too long in the Finance dept...I guess it was late Sunday evening...
We insisted on getting the "J Vin" because the excellent quality was so evident (specially in interior trim) that it was a no brainer...was the last on on the lot with J vin...had small scratch that they will fix ...but we still got the "J"
The most appalling part was the quality of Camry..I was Shocked at the trim and fit and finish on Camry...test drove a fully loaded V6 SE.. the top of dash was all crocked over the clock....plastic trim(where the center column meets the center bin) miss-aligned and sharp edges...sticker MSRP over 31K..what a piece of crap....I rented a 2011 Hyundai Sonata last month and it was sooo much better than Camry..top class...

I've read in places where they mentioned a brake override system being installed in some of the higher end Toyota's but didn't see it mentioned for the RAV4's. I sometimes wonder just how closely the software issue was looked at and whether that played any part with the problems encountered.

I am in the Baltimore/DC market and looking to buy a RAV4 by this weekend. Got a high bid from a dealer in Baltimore (compared to what I'm reading on here, $2K higher) but sent out Internet quote requests and am awaiting some reponses. Looking for a 2010 base model fwd with value package. What model did you purchase? If you wouldn't mind passing on who you bought your car from or who ended up contacting you after you purchased your car, that would be great. Thanks.

Too bad you're not in S. Florida. I got a super deal from Delray Toyota. My salesman was helpful, courteous and sincere. Believe me, I spoke with different salesmen at various dealerships for over 4 weeks. This guy, although young and new to the sales game (or maybe because of it) was a class act, as were all of the people that I dealt with at Delray Toyota. I am not easy to please, am a cynic and will walk out the door and never look back if I'm displeased. This was a very easy & pleasant experience, although it took a long time on a Sat. evening. The sales manager was helpful but not in my face or pushy in the least. Not patronizing, not annoying, just darned good. So I bought the car, after hedging and hesitating at every other dealership that I visited.
#3410 of 3966 Is this good price for RAV4 LTD 4X2 with Extra value package $25750.00

Is this a good price to pay for Toyota RAV4 LTD 4X2 (Model No 4450C) with the Extra value package, That includes Daytime Running Lights, Power Moonroof with Sunshade, JBL AM/FM 6-Disc CD Changer / Integrated XM Satellite Radio. (Includes a 90 Day Trial Subscription. At End of 90 Day
Period, Requires XM Radio Subscription) / MP3/WMA Playback Capability / Hands-Free Phone Capability Via Bluetooth and 9 Speakers (Includes subwoofer) in 7 Locations, Premium Package. (Includes Leather Seating Surfaces / 8-Way. Adjustable Power Driver''s Seat with Power Lumbar Support / Driver and Front Passenger Heated Seats / 120V AC Power Outlet)
Dealer is asking $25,026 plus ttl&f. This includes a $750 rebate which I have to give up for 0% for 36 months,1.9% for 48 months or 2.9% for 60 months.
I specifically did not want the GPS system,because, it would not come with bluetooth capability and no 6 CD changes as well as no sub woofer speakers, which is odd with Toyota.
Also, please suggest me if I should go with any other model if there is any issue with this particular one.

I heard Toyota will redesign 2011 RAV4, is that true? I know it comes out in Aug/Sept time frame, in that case I might just wait for 2011. Hopefully Toyota will put 5 or 6 speed trans instead of just 4 they have now. I can't believe they still have only 4. All of the comparable cars have either 5 or 6, it's about time Toyotaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... Other then that i like RAV4.

hopefully also they'll move the spare tire to hidden location like the cr-v, which is now a much nicer looking vehicle becuase of that, imho.

It's not bad. I paid $26,300 for the same model in NC about 4 months ago. I got the Extra Value Package with GPS instead of the JBL. I agree with you about the oddness of the packages Toyota offers. it's pretty lame. but the car drives nice. I thought I'd miss the V6 but even the 4-cylinder is pretty peppy.
