#1173 of 1269 Prius IV with solar panel package
Apr 23, 2013 (6:16 am)
I am thinking of getting 2013 Prius IV with solar panel package, in So. Ca location. What is purchasing price that people have been paying? Has anyone heard repair cost for the solar panel once off warranty? Or early breakage or damage?

Note there was a typo in my post. The title said Prius II (which is correct) but in the post I said we purchased a 2013 III - it is a II. We leased a 2010 III but opted for the II this time.
Roberts Toyota in Columbia, TN was the dealer. The car was listed on ebay and on their web page. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Two-/321097227230
They had a decent price on it on Friday, then dropped it Saturday morning (last selling day of the month) to what we paid.
There is a NC dealer on ebay offering a II for $22,568 today ($1k more if you do the cheap financing). It looks like Rice Toyota in Greensboro, NC.

Keep in mind that Toyotas are priced and sold by region, so what is a deal here may not apply there. Also there was a $750 dealer incentive last month that AFAIK is not available this month.

End of month sale or dealer cash or both?
Rice dropped the price to $21,968 OR $22,968 with cheap financing for new 2, plus dealer fee of $469 and TTL.
Roberts shows $22,720 or $22,920 plus fee and TTL.
still two more selling days this month for them to reduce more to sell more

We are looking at certified Prius and trying to decide between two choices. 2011 Prius Two or 2010 Prius Three. Same miles and same price, pretty much same overall condition. Is there anything that will sway in favor of one vs the other? first time Prius owners to be. We dont care much about the extras that Prius III offers. What is your opinion.

For 2010 the iii got you an updated JBL audio system and BT handsfree. The latter was a must have for my wife. Our 2013 ii has BT handsfree so we opted not to pay extra for a iii (backup cam, nav, etc). For 2011 I don't know the differences. If like 2010, then it comes down to the better sound (with XM) and BT. I would tend to go with the newer car, but would be swayed to the iii to get BT.
Deals are available on new 2013 and 2012 cars, so don't pay much for a used one.

Hi, I was looking for a base plug-in in l.a., too.
After searching about 2 months and trying to find incentives and cash back,
The best price I've found here is 31,300, as well. (plus taxes and fees)
I think NY and MA maybe still have generous $5,000 - 6,500 factory cash backs, but I'm not finding anything like that out here. You can buy It there and have it sent out or drive across country, if that appeals to you. I think you just have to be sure to register it only in CA, to recoup the fed and state rebates/incentives, too.
Good luck! A friend says going through AAA or Costco you can get a price quote supposedly, that they should honor at the dealership, but with hybrids the difference is between 500-1200 off...still worth taking a peek.
I think I've decided to get a regular Prius for now and save up for a plug in conversion in 2 years, since I can't find one below 30,000.
Hope you find what you're looking for!
