OK - here's the real data : MSRP was $29,500. Extra Value Package deduct $2650 for Total Sticker Price of $26850. From the sales ticket, actual total price was $22780. Taxes, fees etc a little under $900.
My Corolla had been "examined" by three other dealers (two Toyota and one Honda). Trade value ranged from $4500 (Honda, one Toy) to $6500 (on a Standard Prius, package 3). I paid $18000 and my Corolla. Dealer threw in those terribly overpriced matching Toyota floor mats at no charge.
Still lovin' my Prius and the deal.

I too am in NC and am awaiting delivery this morning of my 2009 Silver Pine Mica Touring Pkg 5!!! I think Ellisda1 and I got about the same deal. Total out the door will be 23,737. I don't have a trade-in. After I take delivery I will revisit to verify that everything went as planned.

What dealer did you deal with? I bought from Toyota in Goldsboro, but could have made a very similiar deal with Leith Toyota in raleigh. Fred Anderson was at least $2000 higher.

I am interested in knowing what a $140.00 DICE unit is for you to be able to play your ipod? I use a FM Transmitter but the signals are all over the place and a after-market guy said there is no way I can have anything wired in the 08 base Prius.
#1964 of 2152 What Would Be A Good Deal On '09 Prius?
Jun 11, 2009 (6:45 am)
I'm thinking about getting a 2009 Prius Touring Edition, but only if I can get a good deal and the current 0% financing promotion. Otherwise I'll stick with my plan of keeping my 2000 Accord (136,000 miles) for a couple more years and saving up more cash so I won't have to finance.
This would be in Central Florida, by the way, in the Melbourne or Orlando area.
Anyway, I'm curious what would constitute a good deal on a '09 Prius Touring? Something like $300 over invoice? Would that be too much? Too little? I'm not desperate for a new car yet, but it would be nice to take advantage of the current buyer's market as long as I don't have to pay finance charges.
Any thoughts or opinions?

Two of us (recent posters from NC) got prices on the 2009 Touring for lots less than $1000 BELOW invoice. I wouldn't consider paying invoice or higher - the market is still a disaster, and the 2010 models are coming in.

I've never driven a Prius and wanted to find out how the ride quality smoothness compares to cars like a camry/accord. Is the ride like a corolla/civic or a lot smoother.
#1967 of 2152 My Lease Deal on Prius package IV
Jul 07, 2009 (2:14 pm)
I am going to pick up a Prius package IV tonight
Black with dark grey leather
435.00/tax included per month
I just wanted to share that with people that might be leasing the new prius. They sold it at sticker or just a little below I believe.
Longo Toyota in El Monte gave a great deal - see Derrick Nguyen in internet sales

Depends. I never understood the Camry to ride like the Accord. My TCH was a soft rife. Mushy in fact. Still acceptable for what it was. I've always understood the Accord is a more "sporty" ride. I have not driven the II thru IV Prius, but the V is more "Accord like" than it is TCH like. I'm guessing the II thru IV will be more TCH like, but perhaps a tad better. If a soft ride is what you're after then the lower levels of Prius would be your best choice.

rbk3 - it took me 4 mos. to stumble onto your post (I haven't been on in a while). I am about to use the same strategy on a Forester. Hours of research up front and a careful approach can save you a lot of money (and time and aggravation) so I hope it was helpful to you. We LOVE our Prius and were so happy not to pay a crazy price for it!
