#504 of 1192 Will price drop further after release of 2011 models?
Jul 27, 2010 (4:19 pm)
I'm ready to purchase a 2010 Prius II with no extras. Current price in the forum is around $21,450, or around $750 below invoice. Toyota is also offering 2.9% APR for 60 months with 2 yr free maintenance. I'm wondering if the price on 2010s will drop further after the release of the 2011 model ? Should I go ahead and buy them now or wait till October ? Thanks for your input.

The old crystal ball question...
Comes up in about every forum this time of year. The answer is we have no idea - it depends on how sales are doing and the supply on cars on hand. In June, they sold 10,998 Prius cars compared to June 2009's number of 12,998 (a drop of 15.4%), year to date 2010 is 66,039 compared to the 1st half of 2009's 55,751 (up 19.2%). In May they moved 14,248, so June is down a good bit. If they still have a lot of cars on the ground, then I would assume low prices and deals will continue -but we will not know July numbers until next month. A strong month of July could mean less incentives for next month.
My advice is if you get a good deal you can live with, then get the car. There could always be better deals later, but there also could be fewer cars to choose from with the colors and options you want. If you have a trade, it will be worth less money once it is another model year older as well.
#506 of 1192 Prius III - just purchased
Jul 31, 2010 (4:40 pm)
Just purchased a silver Prius III for $22,201 selling price.
24,760 Vehicle Price
279.00 clear bra
299.00 theft protection
-2,137.00 Preferred Customer discount
-1,000.00 Self financing or cash discount
22,201 Selling price
With Tax just over $1000 and dealer handling of $499 I was out the door at just over $23,700.
I'm pretty sure this was as good deal as they implied there was no profit and only helped increase their sales numbers.

#512 of 1192 Re: Price for Lease on IV with Solar Roof [dkny330]
Aug 11, 2010 (9:02 am)
Just leased a IV with Solar Roof, rear bumper applique, and mats
- $0 down, 36 mo., 12k miles p/yr, $349 (tax and gap included).
MF was .0009
GAP was around $400 for the 36 month term. I didn't want this, but they requirred it to do the deal.
I leased a level III with NAV in January before the recall issue and put $1500 down, same terms and was at $340 a month inc tax. Ended up selling it and got this one. I swear this one performs better and feels a lot more solid over my previous 2010 prius. I am thinking maybe better quality control has been implemeneted.
#513 of 1192 Is the advanced tech pack worth it?
Aug 11, 2010 (2:33 pm)
Don't need nav but the pre-collision, lanekeep assist and parking assist is intriging. Anyone have opinions on whether it's worth 2k.
