#1 of 94 PRICES PAID - Buying experiance
Nov 21, 2005 (1:49 pm)
Has anyone paid near invoice for an 2006 Land
Cruiser? I recently recieved a quote for $54,500
( no nav or DVD)
plus tax and title. I may wait for the August and
September clearance sale. I'm assuming dealers will discount this SUV in September. Please correct me if I'm mistaken.
I'm also considering the 06 Q56 by Infinity and
will consider the 07 Escalade when it comes out
in February 06. Any thoughts on how Land Cruiser
compares to those two models?
Thank you for your input.

No Infinity, no Escalade...
Stick with your mind, the Land Cruiser.
Nissan's big SUV and Infinity received more problems than Toyota based on Consumer Report. If you read their forums, you will know some people are not very happy with Nissan. I also noticed the resale value is not as good as LC. You will also pay more for insurance than TOYOTA if you pick the Q56 or and Escalade (high stolen rate).
LC might not stands out as much as the other 2 but in the long run, I think you will be happy you pick LC.
FYI- the Land Cruiser is directly made in Japan and been used over the world in tough places like Africa, New Zeland...

Curious whether you were able to purchase 2006 LC near invoice?
Also interested in residuals Carman would advise using for 36 mo. lease for:
1. 2006 LC w/DVD/Nav
2. 2006 Sequoia Limited w/DVD/Nav

Has anyone ever ordered a LC? Can you even do this? Or do you have to buy off the lot?

I have not been able to purchase an 06 LC near invoice,
on the other hand I have only contacted one dealer.
The internet salesperson and I get in touch occasionally.
( a weak and miserable attempt I know ) I may be wrong, but since I'm not in a hurry I may wait until September for close out. I have not considered leasing and ruled out the Sequoia.

I'm sure you can order a new L.C., however it must be at the dealer's price and does not leave much room for bargaining. You'd probably have more negotiating power
if it was in stock. The dealer I spoke with in PA had two 06s in stock and a 2005 LC. This dealer did not want do
bargain near invoice, however it is important to contact many dealers in your search for the best deal. Please share any information about a good purchase.

There are a few dealers here in New England that I am sure, depending on how their month is going, will work with you on getting a price for a small cost above invoice. Keep shopping around, I am sure you will find one. The best way to go is through the Internet. They know you are price shopping and will give you an aggressive price the first time around.

I ordered a 2004 TLC in April, 2004. I had to wait for two months for my favorite color and the manufacturer default packages and options only, i.e., navigation system; roof rack & running board; curgtain airbags; and 18" wheel.
It was very difficult to get a better price of $2000 above the invoice . Most dealers in VA/MD just wouldn't sell at that price. I finally get the auto service from the credit union of Maryland(SECU) which is called 'UBS', http://www.secumd.org/html/secu/lower.htm?page=news.united_buying
The final deal was $1900 above the invoice $51330 (including NV,RR,GY,AW packages and options) before destination, tax and title. I believe that it was a good buy.
#10 of 94 ANY GOOD EXPERIENCES FROM FL DEALERS??
Apr 06, 2006 (9:22 am)
I've finally made the transition from "just looking" at the Land Cruiser to the "buying best price" mode. Yep, I'm ready to buy NOW. I'd appreciate any tips, advice, and experiences from current owners, especially FL owners.
