#1197 of 1242 OTD Price 2013 Corolla LE
Jul 25, 2013 (5:36 am)
Just bought a 2013 Toyota Corolla LE with tinting for 17,900 OTD in Corpus Christi, TX.
MSRP 19,200 + 399 for tinting
Selling Price 17331.25 minus 750 college grad rebate = 16581.25 plus ttl, fees = 17895.28
This is with 0% financing and I put down payment of 2900 so monthly payment is 249.92
I was getting internet prices from two dealerships in the area, starting from 19,700 OTD to 18,900 to 17,986 then both matched 17,900. I went with the one closer to home.

I am also planning to get my Car from GA as the price difference between NJ dealers and GA dealers is too much.
I have quick question did you fly to FL and drove back to NJ or is there any other way I can get my car here.

I live in Merritt Island,FL...Just bought my second Corolla in 2 months. Both are 2013 Corolla L with Manual Trans.
They are offering HUGE price discount on ALL Corolla models here.
My first one was 13,690 + tt&l.
The second was 13,590 + tt&l.
They're running about $4k off MSRP on all models here.
Been very happy with both.
And I traded my 2012 Honda Civic Si for the second one. I miss it, but it needed basically a new motor after losing qt of oil every 1,000 miles. Cant beat the savings for the trade.

I was also tracking prices in the Atlanta area and they seemed even better than South Florida. My daughter flew down one way from NJ and drove the car back. There are other ways to get the car back to NJ but with the additional costs you might not realize the savings you anticipate. Though the price difference is sooo much you still might.

Automatic. The MSRP is meaningless. Negotiate from the bottom up (dealer cost) not MSRP down. Auto Buying 101.

Yes, and compute your initial price as follows:
Invoice, less holdback, less incentives, plus 2-3 % profit.
Work up from that number, not down from any price the dealer quotes.
Use True Car Target Price to get the dealer's true initial price offer. Reduce that by $299, TC's commission paid by the dealer for any new car sale through TC. This is a price at which most dealers would likely sell with no real negotiation.
If your dealer will not play ball, use your feet and look elsewhere. You may not get the dealer's best offer unless you make them think you are leaving.
