Yep. we actually looked for the 2009's and really couldn't find what we want in terms of options. We're in Iowa. The dealer tried to sell us a 2010, I said we'd wait a few months for the incentives. He "guaranteed" us there would not be any for at least 6 months. Told him I'd buy today if he would reimburse me if an incentive did come out in the next 6 months....he said no. I said "then that's not much of a guarantee, is it?"

He didn't agree because he knows there will be one soon. The market isn't exactly on fire, and that Sienna is the same basic design from MY2004.
The "for at least 6 months" thing is hogwash. I bet it's within a month, two tops. As soon as the 09s sell out, basically.

thanks ateixeira! that's what I figured. Besides, it doesn't hurt us any to wait 3 or 4 months. The guy was pushing hard for us to buy then but the look on his face when I asked if his manager would cut me a check for the difference if in fact there were incentives in the next 3 months...priceless.
#15 of 29 2010 pricing?
Jun 18, 2009 (11:39 am)
I know I’ve asked this before but didn’t get a reply…
Anyone really know what the true invoice price on the 2010 sienna is? Dealers are willing to show me the “invoice” and have offered $50 over invoice as their sale price…but come on, they’re really not just making $50??? I know that there’s a manufacturer’s rebate, 2% of the MSRP and a fleet incentive from Toyota Motor Sales of $1000. Assuming that the MSRP is $30K, can I assume that the profit margin is $1600 above the quoted invoice price? Any thoughts as to what a fair profit for a dealer would be?

They also get a holdback, but dealer margins are thin. They make profits on service, not sales.
#17 of 29 sienna 2009 - XLE

ok, looks like I've finally found a 2009 model that is still out there. However, it's about 4 hours away from our local dealer. Our local dealer wants to charge me a fee to go get the vehicle, is that typical? Heck, I might as well drive up there myself and buy it from that dealer.

I think that's fair, it's like another freight.
Do you know what dealer has it?
Ask if he'll waive that fee if you go pick it up, but still let you close the deal locally.

don't know which dealer has it. but would be easy enough to find since it's within a 300 mile radius. Part of my argument with the local dealer is that I could easy pick up the phone myself and call around and buy the sienna from that dealer and not have to pay their $500 delivery fee. Figure, 2 guys driving, 600 miles round trip at 70 miles an hour. Should take 8.5 hours...let's say 10 hours. That's 20 hours of labor for 2 guys...I'm paying them $25 per hour to go pick up a car? Seem kind of high.
by the way, I appreciate the input ateixeira!!
