We went to Toyota Scion of Wallingford. We started to negotiate at Consumer Reports recommendation which was 24,293. Of course he was not going for it. We then told them we did our homework and this is what consumer report suggested and showed them the True Market Price that edmunds gives which was 24,687. He laughed and said Edmunds does not sell cars and we don't review cars. They don't know what they are talking about. He wanted around 25300. I told him my bottom line was 24,800. He would not accept the price and we walked out.

Went to the local dealer to sit in a Prius for the first time during the middle of the week when no other customers were there. I let the salesman knowing I was debating waiting on the 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid. As we were walking to the car the sales manager comes out to introduce himself. He asked what I thought and I told him Fremont had 5 advertised at $19800 and asked if he would match. He didn't hesitate and said yes. I then asked if I still get the military on top of that making it $19300 and he said yes. In Cali doc fee is limited to $55. My only sticking point is I don't want to pay Cali taxes wich is $1K more than my home state of Florida. I probably call Carson City, NV to see if they will match and let me pay FL taxes. Otherwise I will take leave fly home and buy...atleast the money saved will pay for the trip home.

Vacaville, but remember it is who you talk to and what you say. They know if you leave to go to another dealer the odds of coming back is slim.

OK, so who should I speak to? (Who did you speak to to get this deal?) Should I just walk in and be like, "I know someone who got a Prius from you for 19,800, and I know you can give me the same deal"? Or should I be more coy?
Thanks for the advice in advance, this is my first car purchase ever and I need all the help I can get!

I called Carson City, NV to see if they will do the tax thing, too...as I am a resident of PA and my taxes are 6% there...the guy I spoke to (I forget his name, but he was really nice, someone in the finance department) said that they would call the DMV or whatever relevant agencies in my county in PA (including perhaps another car dealership) to figure out what the taxes would be there, and then they would issue a check or something to cover the difference of what I would pay in NV taxes towards my registration fees in PA, so theoretically, I would be only paying PA taxes for the vehicle.
Hope this helps!

A reporter is interested in talking with recent car-buyers and car-shoppers who strongly considered the impact of rising gasoline prices when making a purchase decision.

#658 of 1207 2011 Prius IV with Solar - What do you think?
Jan 31, 2011 (10:05 pm)
Just got a 2011 Prius IV with Solar Package for $28,000 (MSRP $32,115, Invoice $30,407). Leased for $389 down, $309/month for 15,000 miles per year in Raleigh, NC.
How does that compare? They gave me a great trade in as well full Kelly Blue Book. Is this a decent deal?
Thanks in advance!
