#1064 of 1207 2012 Prius 3 buying experience.
Nov 11, 2012 (9:12 am)
I purchased a new black pkg 3 Prius for $23,806.00 +ttl from Grossinger City Toyota in Chicago, sticker price was $26,585.00. Negotiated the price over the phone. I did my research and feel that I got a great price. Only problem was that they didn't have my first choice in color, silver with dark gray interior. Overall experience with the dealer was very good, no pressure to purchase extended warranties etc.

In the market looking for a 2012 Prius package two. I am in SoCal area, Just got a internet price quote from one dealer and they offer me discount price at $22,477+ttl (no military discount), which they claim the price is $2,543 off MSRP. They didn't specify the color choice. Could i do any better than this? Is $21,500 realistic at this time for Prius two?

22.5k seems reasonable, it's well under dealer invoice on a $25k Prius. 21.5k seems awful low but it doesn't hurt to try!

Thanks for quick reply. This is my first price quote from dealership. I thought it can not be the lowest. Who knows, i could be wrong. But like you said, it doesn't hurt to try. I am not looking to lowball dealers, just want a fair price offer and when i look back, i don't regart for impluse buy by paying $$thousands more.

I got my 2012 prius II from Puente Hills Toyota in Industry for $21,788 on Labor Day weekend. the way i got the car was through the sunday paper (la times which advertise 5 priuis II that price)… i chatted with their internet department and i asked what was there best pricing and they came back to me at a high price, then i mention the ad price from the paper was at 21,788. i got lucky, they had two in stock.... drove to the dealer sign papers and out the door!

That sounds nice, wish i would have that luck. So, 21,788 is the bottom line so far and i hope i can snap one below it. I think the timing is right now, it's end of year and dealers are rush to get rid of old cars. So far, my best quote is $22,450, a long way to go.

I am also thinking about trading in my 2008 Prius for a newer model. I saw Capitol Toyota has some Prius package 3 coming in under 25k and I am guessing they have room to talk them down. So if you see anything, give a shout.

Just bought a Prius Two from Orange, they got tons of Prius Two in stock, you can pick any (except blizzard) for 21,895+ttl (no military disc.) I ended up paying extra 400 for blizzard = 22,295+ttl. Good dealership, nice salesman, no BS or heavy pressure for extras. Avoid Torrance Toyota, they wasted me 2 trips and feed me tons of BS and lies!

Just purchased 2013 Prius 3 on Nov. 17, 2012 from Melody in San Bruno for $25,300 (includes destination) in blizzard white with all carpet mats. Only extra was about 10% more for tt&l. Came out at about cost per Edmunds figures. Not a pleasant experience (long delay locating car despite email saying car was available, turned out 2012 wasn't but found 2013), but worth it given the price.
