I would imagine Toyota should be offering a much more aggressive deal on the Venza by now. I took delivery of mine on 12/31/09 when the dealer was packed with people trying to get in for the last day of tax incentive. There's literally no Venza on the lot and the shipment just landed the dealership on 12/30/09. Seriously, not the best time to deal on a car. Well, I did. I know the dealer has room to throw in more discount. But knowing there's limited inventory, I had no bargaining leaverage.
The best price I landed was $315xx (MSRP $357xx). 2010 Pearl White V6 FWD with Premium package #1 (leather, smart key, power liftgate, HID Xeon, Auto High beam, back up camera..etc), with Navigation.
Just FYI for people shopping for a Venza.

Paid $22,500 for a 2009 Venza, V6, leather, FWD, 5700 miles, everything else base in Egg Harbor NJ. The car was practically brand new. I would have liked the sunroof and upgraded stereo but I couldn't pass up on this price without.

Very positive dealership experience. Worth a 40 mile drive to Lincoln, NE. Supposedly the USAA price included all rebates, but they applied the $750 Toyota rebate. : )
#561 of 596 New and Used Comparison
Sep 25, 2010 (6:11 am)
We have a choice between a new 2010 (demo with 4000 miles) AWD or a certified used 2009 FWD with 13000 miles at a different dealer.
The new car is V6, AWD, Comfort, Convenience, JBL upgrade, 5 pc Floor Mats. Sticker is $34,609. Dealer is offering it for $29,900.
The used car is the same V6 and options, except it is FWD, a 2009, and 13000 miles. Sales prices is $27,000.
Any suggestions? Is the new/demo price a good one?
I am leaning toward new because the difference is not that great when factoring in the new car warranty (e.g. I get a full 36 months), AWD, 2 years free maintenance, and USB port (we are ipod'ers).

I just looked at the USAA site for the V6 AWD with the items you listed. The invoice was about $200 higher than yours (included the 5 piece carpet not just the floormats). The sale price was $28,800. But price is based on zip code. I believe credit unions and some other buying services offer the same prices. With that said, if with the choices you presented I would go with the V6. It will still be tagged as new and you get the warranty.

I think you are over paying for the demo. Even though it has never been officially registered, it is a used car. I live in eastern MA and for some comparisons:
I purchased a AWD 4cyl in Jan sicker $28900 got it for around $25400.
At the time of the purchase I was also looking at 6cyl AWD. Sticker was $31900, offered to me for $28200.
There is a dealer in Eastern MA that is advertising $4400 off sticker on ANY Venza, 4 or 6 cyl, FWD or AWD.
I would think that you could get the used demo for for under $28k
For basically the same price I would buy new. The is alot of inventory around right now with the 2011's starting to hit. For example, IRA Toyota in Eastern MA has 80 2011 Venza's in stock.

got it from Prestige in Mahawah/Ramsey. Had same deals all over NJ. My advice to everyone is to get a deals from dealers via emails. While they compete with each other, you get a best deal possible without actually going to dealership.
I started with emailing every dealer in NY/NJ with exact description of what i'm looking for. Once i start getting quotes, elimination process kicked in to weed out "bad dealerships" and then narrowed the search to 2-3 dealers. At first Prestige said no to the proposed deal and i was going to go with another dealer, then they called me a week later with accepted offer.
