#711 of 1269 Prius II for $25K OTD
Aug 21, 2011 (12:13 pm)
I was offered a new 2011 Prius II for about $25K out the door in Southern California (LA county). Barcelona Red, Gray interior. Anyone else get a similar deal recently? I've noticed that the Toyota dealer lots are filling up again after the supply chain disruption following the Tsunami. Quite a few more Prii now, but mostly in Silver, White or Beige colors. Dealers have also started advertising "specials" for the Prii. This week, Claremont Toyota has a special for a Red 2011 Prius II for $22,988 before tax, etc. The deal I was offered was in response to the ad for Claremont Toyo. I took the printout to a local dealer and asked him to match/beat it. They were out of the Red one, so I walked. One of the salesmen ran after me and told me that they'd give me any available color on the lot for that price (similar options, ofcourse). Decided to wait a few weeks. With the 2012s around the corner (and gas prices coming down), the 2011 prices should start coming down soon because of decreased demand.

My genuine factory Toyota extended warranty cost $651 for 75k zero deductible. There are several Toyota dealers who will sell you that online. I just had my selling dealer match the price. You can cancel and rebuy. Search the prius forums on edmunds for details.
#714 of 1269 Just bought Prius II with floor mats

I decided to take the plunge and bought a silver Prius II for 21, 995 from Toyota of Orange. I was able to get a 5/80k mile platinum extended warranty for $650 and paid $300 for keyless entry alarm in addition to purchase price. Tax and title were of course extra, I am happy with the price as Truecar quoted $22,454 but that dealer needed to add $200 for floor mats. Of the 10 dealers that contacted me, only 2 would go this low on the price. Most dealers told me they would lose money at 21,995 but I don't believe them. Looking forward to life with the Prius, I have been driving a dodge sprinter diesel as my daily driver, good bye gas pump.

#716 of 1269 California State Fees Question 2011 Prius II
Sep 09, 2011 (6:04 pm)
Can anyone tell me (apx) what they are charging for Title and Registration in Southern California?
I am almost home on a lease based on:
Money factor of .00150
Residual of $14,582
36 months/12K miles
They are saying 0 down but then they quote me drive off fees of $635 which includes first months payment, title and registration.
That's where the difference seems to be.
They keep saying it's $346 but I am getting something closer to $326 per month.
#717 of 1269 Prius 3 with solar
Sep 11, 2011 (6:19 pm)
In upstate NY. MSRP was 29,210 (solar with floor mats). Price was 28,045 plus tax, DMV fees. It was very difficult finding a prius 3 with navigation and almost all the dealers were quoting msrp with no discount. Lots of prius 2 were available though.

Lots of Prius 2 available in Southern CA now as well, since about August. Almost seems like they've ordered too many as inventory is piling up.

Try to use TrueCar.com and AOL Autos to get the quotes.
The prices are much better than quotes from the dealers' internet departments.
You just need to work hard to make dealers honor the prices you got from TrueCar and AOL Autos. (AOL Autos has lower price quote)
