#176 of 596 Why MSP with no wiggle room?
Mar 31, 2009 (1:15 pm)
I just left the Toyota dealership in Westport, CT and was very interested in a 2009 AWD 6 cylinder Venza with leather seats and a rear camera. The dealer stuck to the sticker price like he was attached to it with crazy glue! I'm not a ditzy blonde, so I know there must be a way to get the dealership to give me a better price. PLEASE help!
...and thanks for your help!

Glad that you left the dealership without buying at MSRP. I got the same car in Maryland for 33,489 plus TTL. Take a look at Fitzmall.com and compare the prices what you should be paying (in the ballpark).

Try this, Contact 3 or 4 dealers by email or phone tell them what you want and ask for there best price and tell them your checking with other dealers and who ever gives you the best price thats where you will buy it. Start the bidding war!!!
Thats what I did and got evrything I wanted then some. My local dealer wanted to charge me $35000 before ttl with only package 1 v6FWD, Tow prep, mudgaurds,
I bought for $33508 package 2, Nav, Panoramic roof, mudgaurds, mats,tow prep, tint, toyo gaurd plus, with tax and fees paid $35187
MSRP was $38112 Bought mine in Alabama

Heartland Toyota in Bremerton is where I ordered our Venza.
Nice folks overall. If I remember correctly, the "price" of AWD over FWD was $1450 at the MSRP differential. I got my FWD with options I listed in an earlier post for $32,400 - the same trim in AWD should invoice out around $33,800 or less (I am adding MSRP AWD #s to invoice #s - adjust accordingly!)
I was almost ready to FLY to Maryland and DRIVE back after looking at the internet pricing from Fitzmall... I used this as a bargaining chip at Heartland...
Best of luck to you.

Say - anyone have experience in special ordering AND receiving a Venza?? I'm wondering just how long a wait is acceptable. I feel like I'm getting a wee bit of a run-around from my dealer as to the ETA of our Venza and am wondering what others are experiencing.

I just bought the 6 cyl Venza, leather seats, awd, moonroof, back-up camera for $31,900. I think I got a great deal! If I want a choice of color other than silver, I have to pay an extra $500. What do you think?
