#843 of 1269 2012 Prius anyone?
Jan 09, 2012 (9:47 pm)
Anyone getting 2012 Prius? I am in San Fran and there is no 2012 yet. Worse yet even the dealers don't know when they are going to get 2012s.
I cannot understand why Toyota is not putting 2012 prius on the market yet. Hello Toyota, the new year is long gone and its now 2012. What are they thinking? How hard is it to change the model year when all is changed is just some minor stuff. And they have to give out rebate to get rid of the 2011. Not very smart Mr Toyoda!

Production of many Toyotas was slowed due to the earthquake and tsunami, especially the Prius in which some of the battery manufacturing plants were damaged. I understand your frustration, as i am currently waiting for my Prius V to be built, but realize Japan was hit by the third largest quake in recorded history and may need some time to rebuild infrastructure

#848 of 1269 Price paid in CT for a Prius IV
Jan 26, 2012 (7:26 am)
I just purchased a 2011 Prius IV. In the CT region (and I think NY too) the current incentive is $750 cash or 0%. We took $750 cash. Here's what I got:
Prius IV, base w/ MSRP $28,080. Price paid after $750 rebate: $25,228 +400 doc +TTL. That's appx. $2800 under MSRP.
I used TrueCar.com to obtain pricing from several different zip codes in larger metro areas (NYC, Boston). I talked to the TrueCar dealer to be sure they actually had a car to sell that met my specifications (often they don't). I then called local dealers to see if any would match. I've tried this in the past with other vehicles and it never worked. I've always ended up traveling to the larger dealerships. But this time the local dealers were willing to work with us.
The process was very smooth. I'm happy with the outcome. Hope this helps someone.
#849 of 1269 2012 Prius package III with Nav.

My 2009 lease was up, and was planning on buying the car off of residual. Checking out value of the car with some issues (mileage overage, some minor damage), made sense to consider a new car. Thinking I'd get a better price on a 2011, I followed the advice of jsct and contacted local dealers through Edmonds and Costco. Turns out, the 2011 was a couple hundred dollars more than the 2012, so I opted for that instead. There are other threads comparing the two if you're debating the two, and for me, the 2012 made sense.
I spent day one negotiating the price of the car, and day two was about getting best value for my return. Spent the afternoon getting appraisals, and got all kinds of various prices, and ended up with a fair price and good deal on the car. I live in southern California.
Purchase price for 2012 package 3 with Nav was $24,961 plus Tax/License. They even gave me a loaner car until the color I want comes in, saving me a month of a lease payment and registration that was due on the lease. They also gave me $800 more than the second lowest bid on the appraisal. With the price worked out ahead of time, process was easy and stress free. Good luck!

I am also in SoCal and am looking for a 2012 Package 3. I have a lease to trade in and am wondering where you purchased your car. Based on my research, that seems like a really good price, considering the dealers I've contacted have said they can't keep them on the lot and have no incentive to make a deal.
