#569 of 596 2011 Venza 3.5L AWD
Nov 01, 2010 (5:09 am)
Just bought a 2011 Venza 3.5L AWD with Premium Package #2 (LX - essentially everything minus tow package), Navigation, (NV) and Panoramic Sunroof (SR). MSRP was $38,485. My final price was $34,375 or approx. 11% off MSRP. That's pretty close to the best deal I've seen on a new Venza.
Just used email to find dealerships that were looking to make a deal. Got the best price and then checked with a few more dealers to see if anyone wanted the sale by beating my best price. The final price I got is about $400-500 under the Dealer's Factory Invoice. What do others think?
#570 of 596 2011 Venza v6 AWD Price
Jan 30, 2011 (11:51 pm)
I am shopping for a 2011 Venza v6 AWD. I am asking this forum to tell me what is the lowest price we can get for a fully loaded Venza v6 in CT. The dealer we went to yesterday gave us a quote of $38,283 including taxes, registration and dealership fee. This also includes floor mats/cargo mat, convenience package, comfort package, DVD Navigation System, Security Package, Panoramic Glass roof, tow package and wheel locks. How should we bargain to get the best price, should we use the invoice price or MSRP price? What have everyone paid for a 2011 fully loaded v6? How do we know if the price is fair? Is dealership fee a necessary fee to charge to us as customers or we can waive that? any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you very much!
#572 of 596 Crazy price?

Am I crazy to think I can get a 2011 V6 2WD w/ Prem pkg #2, Nav, DVD, & some small add-ons features (i.e. door guard molding, etc...) for $33K? $33K includes TTL. Not sure if this is realistic or not. Any advice is appreciated.

I honestly feel the Venza is way overpriced for what it offers. If I had wanted the larger display screen (this should be standard by now??), leather interior, and larger wheels it amounted to $37K. I can have the same options on a Murano for $5k less. For the base price of the vehicle it seems very underwhelming. Does anyone else feel that way?
#574 of 596 2009 Venza 6k miles $23,299 firm- Good deal?
Apr 01, 2011 (5:58 pm)
A dealership has offered us a 2009 Venza with only 6000 miles for $23299, clean Carfax and all standard equipment. We asked to negotiate with them on price but they stood firm so we walked. Is this a good deal?
#575 of 596 2011 AWD V6 Pricing, sweet deal!!!

I shopped prices in both Washington and Oregon. We picked up our Bacelona Red with Gray Leather interior, Premium Pkg 2, Nav, sunroof, tow package, rear bumper protector, floor mats, All weather rear cargo mat, and a few other things for $38000 out the door and that included sales tax and license of around 10%. Purchase price was well into the dealer holdback. Probably at least $1000 under invoice. I think invoice was around $36,200 and sticker was over $40k. Also got the Toyotacare as well. But I think that is included with all new toyotas.
We looked at the Accord Crosstour, the Acura RDX, and the Ford Edge and Flex. The Edge drops like a rock in terms of resale and is more SUV than car, the Accord Crosstour has terrible blind spots, back seat room is average at best, and rear visibility is a joke, and the RDX has terrible fuel economy and it runs on premium fuel, and maintenence costs are not cheap. The Venza had more room, better MPG, and the resale has been quite strong up in this area. Sure, the plastic use is not the best inside, but the audio, nav and Ipod system is better than many higher end cars, kids have more than enough legroom and shoulder room, and the motor pulls pretty good for a V6.....not super peppy but enough to at least feel like you have something under the hood. Another big selling point is that the V6 needs virtually no maintenence until 120k miles. Just change the oil and filter and get it inspected. Then at 120k the spark plugs need to be changed. Much less replacing of this and that then the other vehicles. No timing belts, etc.
I tried to get two used 2009's that were AWD and V6, both with nav and they were listed around $30k and both were sold.

I'm shopping for a Venza V6 with AWD. What price did you pay and what options/packages did you get? Also, who is a good dealer in the area? I just got back from a bad shopping experience at Prestige Toyota in Ramsey, NJ, where they refused to give me price quote because I was not ready to buy yet. They gave me reasons such as when you are ready to buy, the price will vary with different incentive programs. Like duh, other brands and dealers also have incentives and they all gave me a price quote before I was ready to buy.
I'm comparing a Venza against other AWD alternatives to replace my 00 Subaru Legacy GT. I have driven the Audi A4; Volvo S60 T6; Ford Edge; and Subaru Legacy, and I did get price quotes from those dealerships. Obviously, there are differences between the cars in terms of driving dynamics, performance, reliability, size, etc... The Venza appears to be a reasonably good value, but it would help if the dealership had provided me with a quote so that I could compare to the other brands and models, both objectively and subjectively.
I would be curious to hear from those who also compared the current A4 and S60.
