I have bought 2 Yaris's from Wolfchase, but they just happened to have the best deal at the time. It changes every week. The one I got on Saturday, April 14, 2007 was about $500 off MSRP. The very next Saturday, Performance Toyota was selling any Yaris in stock for $1,000 off MSRP, and the following Saturday they were offering any Yaris in stock for $1,500 off MSRP. That is the best deal I have seen so far. Chuck Hutton Toyota is usually a little higher, but they are still worth checking out. I would advise that you get quotes from their internet departments and try to make the deal before you set foot on their lots. You can check their inventory online. Saturday seems to be the best day, but if you are not in a hurry, and you shouldn't be, I would wait a couple weeks if need be to get the best deal. If you can get $1,500 off MSRP, no further negotiations are necessary.

Yes, you got ripped. I refused the extended warranty that the finance manager showed me so he pulled up the same warranty on the Toyota web site and said it was cheaper if you go there and buy it. WTF! Check out the toyota site and see if you can purchase extneded warranties there.
#517 of 661 How much lower than $16,318 should I ask for Yaris Sedan?
Jul 23, 2007 (9:13 am)
I have a quote below from a local Toyota dealerís fleet manager/Internet manager for a 2007 Toyota Yaris Sedan with automatic transmission and PQ package (cruise control, power windows/locks, ABS).
$15139.00 sales price (includes $675 destination charge)
946.19 State Tax
35.09 inventory tax
50.00 DOCUMETATION FEE
33.00 TITLE FEE
60.80 LICENSE FEE
39.50 STATE INSPECTION
10.00 ROAD AND BRIDGE
5.00 DEPUTY FEE
$16318.58 TOTAL DRIVE OUT
We are looking to purchase the car before the end of the month. The above dealer also threw in a $100 gas card if we bought our car from them. We do not have a trade-in, and we are located in the Dallas area.
So we got a call back from a different dealer and he asked what price would it take for us buy the Yaris Sedan from him. If the total drive out price (includes tax, title, and tags) is $16,318 from the first dealer, how much should I tell the second dealer to take off the $16,318?
All suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks so much!

I'd recommend a little extra research.
If several thousands dollars are worth a hour or so of your time. For many people it isn't.
Start with Dealer Cost. Which is (approximately):
Invoice (find this on many places)
Minus Factory Holdback (~2-4%) Usually 2% on Toyotas.
Minus Factory to Dealer Incentives (check Edmunds, Cars.com, etc...)
Minus Consumer Rebates
ADD destination charge (a legitimate charge)
Minus Factory Floorplan Fee.
= Dealer Cost.
Factor in fair dealer profit (say 3-5%)
Include sales tax.
That's your offering price.
All other Fees are NOT legit and should be renamed "more dealer profit."
If the dealer doesn't want a fair offer, then either
1) the car is truly in high demand (NONE on the lot and a 6+ month waiting list) in which case you're stuck.
OR (more often)
2) He trying to get every last dime out of you and you should go somewhere else.
Last time I bought a car, I faxed my offer to 6-7 different dealers. In my town, one dealer never called me back and the other two lied. They stated they would meet my offer and had the car in stock. One didn't have the car in stock, the other wanted to add 'fee-a-rama'
I ended up getting the car out of state, my make, model and color for the price I set.
YMMV and good luck.
P.S. I'm assuming cash offer, no trade-in. If you need a loan or have a trade-in, it gets even more complicated.

I bought a white Yaris Liftback from Lithia Toyota in Abilene, TX. Great experience and got a good price of $13,368 before addons. I was charged $700 to swap my new rims from my trade-in, put the original rims back on my trade-in and get new tires for my alloy rims. I did get a trade-in for the new wheels that were on the Yaris. The end result is that we got great alloy rims and new Bridgestone Potenza 009 tires that are highly rated. The alloy rims and tires look great. We got the convenience package, an extended warranty AND a maintenance program that changes the oil&filter for as long as we own the car. The maintenance package was only $479 which gives us oil changes every 3,000 or 3 months up to 4 times in a year. My wife loves her Yaris and enjoys driving it a lot! It is a blast to drive and looks great. All in all the buying experience was one of the best I've ever had. Even though I was buying one of Toyota's lowest priced car, you would have thought I was buying one of their most expensive. Needless to say we really enjoyed the whole buying experience.
#521 of 661 Is this a good deal?

I got a quote from a dealer for new 4-door Yaris 2007. It is automatic with AC and standard airgbag. No power package, no ABS, no side airbag. the quote is 13600. Is it a good deal?

What is the MSRP for it? You should be able to get it for at least $500 less, $1,000 off is not out of the question. It all depends on how willing you are to shop around, and how soon you have to have it.
