#1090 of 1196 You wont get a lemon from Orange Toyota
Dec 03, 2012 (10:52 am)
I just pulled the trigger on a 2012 silver prius 3 from Toyota of Orange, CA on Nov 30th. Robert
was no nonsense and very easy to work with via email. Responsive and open with answers. Total price minus tax title and license, $23,709. He undercut everybody by at least $750 with no bs. Highly recommended! In and out in an hour.
Thank you for all the posts on this site! I saved a bunch when I bought an Odyssey 5 years ago using the same techniques and pricepoints found on this blog! Was a little surprised that they still worked.
#1091 of 1196 worth traveling to get a new Prius?
Dec 04, 2012 (10:24 pm)
I'm new to this forum so forgive me if this is an old (or ridiculous) question.
I've seen great prices on here for locations in California. I've been quoted $24,500 (costco price) for a Prius 2 here in Albuquerque. Is it worth it to travel somewhere for a lower price? Is there a state or dealership that consistently has lower pricing? How are you guys getting these deals?!
thanks for your help!

The owner's manual says not to drive at extremely high speeds or at a constant speed for extended periods within the first 600 miles. So I would be careful on how far you have to drive the new car back.
Instead of going out of state, you can try car buying services from Edmunds, U.S. News and World Report or credit unions also. I tried about 2 and I got different prices, even from the same dealer. And a few dealers contacted me later to offer even lower prices than the ones they gave thru these car buying services! If you are in the market on the last day of the month, you will get sweeter deals.

Thanks for the replies. I can't get our local dealership below $24,333 which they insist is what they paid for it.

This is a common problem to watch out for. Try not to be too hard on yourself. I think the reason it happens so easily is because Edmunds includes the destination charge in its prices, but dealerships often quote without the destination charge so the price sounds very attractive. Of course, overpaying can be avoided easily by always asking for the price with the destination charge or total charge, without tax, license, and fees. Sounds obvious, doesn't it, but it's a common error that dealerships count on.
