Under the circumstances WE purchased... I consider it decent..
I had visited this forum then... and there were hardly any entries from buyers. In fact I remember wondering.. if there were anybody even buying Toyota RAV4... Comparatively.. the Honda CRV forum was much more active.
We wanted Toyota RAV4 because we wanted something that did not look like the current SUV's i.e. (like a wagon). Therefore the WHEEL and door behind this RAV4 was appealing to us.
Our buying RAV4 was like jumping into an ocean... not knowing the depth of the water.. There were hardly any clues.
Check my very very FIRST entry in this forum and you will know what I am talking about. It is heartening to see that this forum has become very active now and each one is helping the other like a great Team Work.. trying to swim together..
Yes under the circumstances I believe it is a decent deal. Your deal is very much comparable with MY deal for Toyota.. rav4 . And we too have applied for the rebate from Edmunds.. and still awaiting the money.

psk3, my focus was base price (i.e. dealer price, before fees, taxes, rebates, financing, etc). Did not consider Financing as I was taking $1000 rebate so I could do cash down or take available financing rate. At this time I took ~2.9% but I will refinance soon..

I did not get Mud guards included in my vehicle, how about yours? Looks like this is additional purchase for third row RAV4s. I haven't purchased them yet.

I live in the DC area and are looking for the same which dealership did you use? How is the 3rd row seat? Is it easy to access by 7yr olds?
Is yours four wheel or front wheel drive?

My Rav4 is Front wheel drive and Dealer, Leesburg Toyota in Virginia.
Third row is just OK for a 7year old during short trips but definitely not comfortable for teens and beyond. Kid can sleep in entire third row during long journeys.
