No way to know if it is a good price or not because a trade is involved.
#423 of 596 Venza demo
Dec 03, 2009 (6:34 pm)
Looking to buy a new venza. Recently saw a 2009 venza v6 AWD, with premium package #2, navigation, and panoramic sunroof. MSRP about 38600. Car is a demo with 4800 miles. (never been registered so "new").
Dealer offered 33,500 or 500 below "cost", before tax and tags.
Is this a good price. How do you price a car that is a demo?
#424 of 596 Tow package shortage???
Dec 03, 2009 (7:40 pm)
I ordered a new Venza Wednesday before Thanksgiving. The dealer called today and said it was ready. When I got there they said the tow package option that I order was not installed. Apparently there is a tow package shortage on the Venza that also is affecting the Forerunner.
Does anyone have any info to substantiate the dealers claims?
#425 of 596 Tow package shortage???
Dec 03, 2009 (7:41 pm)
Oh and they said that if I didn't buy this car, that the shortage was expected into January.

I just picked up my new venza that I ordered a couple of months ago. When I ordered it the dealer said that they always come with tow package and he would try to stop it but if he couldn't I would not have to pay. Everything else was ordered specifically to my likening, but it came in a few weeks ago and there it was with a tow package. I don't mind that I have it and I didn't have to pay for it, but I will never use it. I don't understand why having to have it syncs with a shortage. No wonder there is a shortage.

Just curious, which state are you located?

It is Fred Haas in Houston Texas. I went into internet negotiations with a few other dealers and am thinking that this is just a sales tactic to have me emotionally buy another vehicle from them since they don't have the exact car I wanted. They are having me believe that this car was customer ordered from Japan and Toyota Japan lacked the parts.

You might want to get the VIN for that Venza if they are saying it was manufactured in Japan. If the first position of the VIN is not a 'J' then its made here in the good old USA. If I recall, Venza's are manufactured/assembled somewhere in the Southeast, maybe Tennessee or Georgia. There might be some that are made overseas, but getting the VIN will confirm one way or the other.
