I am currently looking at purchasing a used 2007 toyota yaris with 24000 miles on it. The dealer says they will sell it to me for about $11,490 which seems reasonable but I'm wondering if I can do better.

Seems a little high to me. Check on Ebay and see what they are not selling for.
Chuck Hutton Toyota in Memphis is advertising 2008 rentals with less than 3,000 miles for $10,990. It's definitely a buyers market right now. With gas prices going up though, you have to think that might end soon.

Well, using Edmunds' Used Car Price Calculator, that's pretty much Dealer Retail for an '07 S-model Yaris Sedan.
Some more details would be good, or just plug in the info yourself on this site. If it's the fully-loaded version, you should be able to still talk them down a grand or so as it shows trade in of 9800 dollars (that'd be what the dealer paid at the most). If it's a base-model hatchback you're looking at, then it's way too high.

I use to sell subarus, and recently bought a jetta sw for my family...this time around we needed a company car and started looking at civic, corolla, yaris, versa, etc. The management and sales staff at rosner toyota in fredericksburg are amazing...they are standards above everybody else in NOVA.
#620 of 661 Did I get a real deal or just a so-so price?
Jun 08, 2009 (2:27 am)
On May 31st 2009 at Sandy Spring Toyota in Atlanta, I paid $11,666 for a 2009 4-door sedan with auto tranny plus $836 in sales tax, doc fees of $599, and yes the Toyo Interior/exterior Protection Package for $699 (Grrrr! but because of the "loss leader" advertised price of $11,888 for the vehicle I could not get them to come off of it) for a drive out the door price of $13,800 for a 4-door automatic with the $1,500 power package, integrated fog lamps, the groovy Yaris floor mats, and (aftermarket) keyless entry (I refused to drive out the door without it).
Of course I did not get to choose a color at this price (Flint Mica exterior with charcoal fabric upgraded interior) but I couldn't care much less--I feel that since I got them to throw in the aftermarket keyless entry and also got them to come $222 off the advertised price from 11,888 to 11,666 that I got a very good deal on a new Yaris. Did I? You tell me.
Depending on the feedback here, I will tell you the LOOOOONG VERSION of the purchase experience if you demand to hear it. All i will say is that if you are not willing to walk away, you cannot get the best price on a car. Period. Should I have walked away more than I did or was this a rock-bottom price?
I know I got it way below invoice, but I also know that: 1) the Edmunds TMV price is $500 below the invoice price, and 2) the invoice prices on a car is not really the invoice price at all when you consider the rebates, the holdbacks, and other dealer incentives that I dont have a mommy-freaking clue about.
FYI, the $1,000 dealer rebate that ended June 1 on the 09 Yaris was of course retained by the dealer.
So far, I am very happy. I rented a Yaris a few weeks ago and LOVED it. Decided to see if I could get one at a low enough price to make buying a new car cost-effective for my budget (I often buy used vehicles). I think after a week that I can still feel good about the purchase price, but you tell me. Thanks for any feedback--any and all is welcome.

I really don't know. If you got the base model with air with a msrp of around $15500 I certainly wouldn't want to pay much more than the $13000 you paid.
If it was the $17000msrp S model about $13000 would be about the max too for a new 09. Both of them have an used 08 trade in of about $10000. (kbb.com) Seems like about an average deal.

I got the base model, but the MSRP is 18,658, not 15,000 . . .here is breakdown:
13,765 Base 4-door Automatic
1,500 Power package (door locks, windows, etc)
230 Remote keyless entry
169 Carpet floor mats
110 Integrated front fog lamps
699 Toya Plus Protection package (ding removal, fabric stain removal, etc)
750 Destination charge
599 Tag, title, documentation
836 Sales tax
so i figured maybe a driveout price of $13,800 was better than average. Maybe not!

Well I would blame myself except for one fact, they had already taken the money BEFORE they gave me the car so this is not my fault at all - I have bought quite a few used cars and know when to walk away - both my wife and I test drove the car and both agreed for a 2007 Yaris it was in very good condition - what came out afterwards was that this car had a been a daily fleet rental and they never disclosed that at time of sale.
This is illegal in most places - now we are in dispute trying to get our money back but it looks hopeless - that's why I will never buy Toyota and to be fair it is not just them, it seems to be everywhere now.
If you put your trust and faith in people that sell cars they will screw you if they can.
