#635 of 4032 Southern California RAV4 Base Model (4cyl) Auto prices????
Jun 15, 2006 (12:04 pm)
First, I wanted to thank the Edmunds organization/crew for keeping this gig going . I've purchased my first new Toyota online (via Edmunds) in 2004, and closed another 3 deals based on the same experience (helped out family) .
Now,it's time to get another a car for myself, as my girlfriend is taking over mine. Hence, I'm back in the game.
Does anyone have any experience with Southern California (San Diego...specifically) prices?
Looking to get the following:
RAV4 Base Model, 4 cyl, AUTO, 4x2 w:
GY- curtain airbags
DR- roof rack
DJ- 6 CD changer
CF- carpet/mat set
Don't know if for this base model configuration Southern CALI forces only AW- 17inch wheels? and TH- third row seats? Does anyone know for sure?
I'm ok w/ 16 inch wheels
Thank a bunch in advance for the your help.

I doubt that. I bought in Visalia, and they had exactly what you wanted. What I've noticed is that you can't find the Limited's with leather here in CA. When they track one down, someone's already put a deposit on it. If you can't find what you want in San Diego, try Toyota of Visalia (Groppetti). They were very willing to negotiate - no one else in my area (Fresno) was willing.

V6 Limited's are very hard to find. I've been trying for awhile to find Blizzard Pearl 4WD, leather, tow package no luck. Nothing in NorCal. I've sent several email inquires to Toyota Visalia and they won't even reply.

When I bought mine there, they said they have only seen one with leather come through. Try calling them, because they seem to get a lot more RAV4's than other dealers. Only problem is, unlike other dealer websites where you can view their 'new inventory', you can't with Visalia Toyota. I bought the blizzard pearl ltd., but mine was 2 wheel drive, I4. I had to settle for cloth seats too. They aren't too bad, but I'm still thinking about after market leather. My favorite option though so far is the moon roof, but maybe that's a 'girl' thing.

Guess I can call. I'm just a little disappointed because every dealer from the Bay area to Sacramento and Central valley responded to my email inquiries promptly. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to locate one. The search continues...

Well I think you got an awesome deal we are trying to get a limited 2wd, third row with tow and can't get anyone to fudge from MRSP,($28700) we live in Texas, several dealers are rather sarcastic and have told us that these are extremely hard to get so why should they go down in price when the guy behind us will pay sticker, we've put down a deposit two weeks ago and they still can't give us a definite date as to when we will get it. really frustrating considering our current vehicle AC is out and Texas is FREAKING HOT :

hard to say without knowing the options, if a trade was involved, if that includes taxes etc. I'd go to the fitzmall site and take a look. I actually did better than fitz a month ago in eastern PA.

Thank you again EDMUNDS, you're system is painless and efficient . This is my 4th car I've purchased via your services. I've been negotiating for 2 days now with a dealer in San Diego(email). I just locked the deal/price on what I wanted (I will pick it up tonight, assuming the dealer delivers on its promise....don't expect many surprises):
Rav4 Base Model 4cyl, 4x2...Blue
GY- Curain & Side Airbags
WF- 17" Alloy wheels
DR- Roof Rack
DJ- 6 CD Changer
DESTINATION charge (included)
Total $21,000.00 (TTL not included).
Got to love that price of aprox $160 over invoice listed within Edmunds.
I will post my experience later this weekend.
Lastly, thanks much for your quick replies to my question. It seems that the information network is working around the clock on this site.
Regards & enjoy your Rav4s
Hours away from becoming a RAV4 owner.
#643 of 4032 2006 RAV 4 Price Quotes
Jun 17, 2006 (8:16 pm)
So I was hoping someone on this board could advise me regarding price quotes for RAV 4's. I had one specced out by a car dealership for a Limited Edition 2.4 liter 4 cyclinder 4x4 with front and side airbags with a moonroof. The final internet quote was for 25,303 including destination charge. Excluding however tax title and doc fee's. Is this a good price for this model or am I being ripped off. I'm located in Jersey and buying this car from a local dealership. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Look up the exact invoice with the specific options on Edmund's. The price sounds high to me. You're not too far from MD - fitzmall sells them for $200 over invoice. Good luck!
