The MSRP was originally 24,848. That of course, includes the $750 freight charge. They also included carpet mats and the rear bumper Prius applique. (I had no choice there).
The price before taxes, title, tags and $200 processing fee was 21,980. Toyota was running a $1000 rebate in the Mid-Atlantic states, so the advertised price came out to 20,980 before TTT. The TOTAL price of the vehicle was $21,957.
I'm currently averaging 54.7 MPG based on about 490 miles.

It is nice the car dealer apologized to you on here...though they should just change their business practices. I had the same experience with my local dealer, who said they were going to lose money if they sold it to me any lower. Compared to what people are getting around the country, their lowest price was a bad deal. I got it from a dealer an hour away for your same reasons, they gave a me a decent price by email ($1,000 cheaper than the local dealer) and didn't play the game. I still didn't get it for nearly as cheap as people are getting it in other areas of the country, but wasn't willing to drive 1000 miles each way to save $1,000.

I got my Prius 3 from Piercey Toyota in Milpitas, CA through the Costco Auto Program. Basically, $500 below invoice.
Give Costco a try. If you do buy from Longo, tell Russell Lowe that I said "Hi" .

I'm out on the east coast, outside of Washington, DC... My steal of a deal was at 355 Toyota in Rockville, Maryland.
Since you are in the LA area, I would check out those storage lots that Toyota uses to hold cars. If a dealer says their supply is constrained, I would tell them to release the cars from the lots, and stop trying to screw potential customers. Personally, I think right now is the worst time to get a hybrid. With the gas prices really high, the dealers are playing off this and marking up the prices. Wait until the gas prices stabilize and the dealers will be offering discounts again... I've seen this trend here in the DC area.

I just bought a 2012 Prius IV, with the deluxe solar package. We paid 31,500. I've only used it twice, but everytime I do I have visions of dollar signs in my mind. Does anyone know how to use the ABC, DEF mode when in the ipod interface? My alphabet buttons aren't highlighted...

Since this discussion is specifically about 2010 Prius pricing, you will probably have better luck with your question in one of our more general Prius discussions. Here's the list:
#884 of 1190 2012 Prius Two Purchase
Apr 03, 2012 (8:00 pm)
Purchased a 2012 Prius Two in Tempe Az for $264 over invoice, calculated as:
140 Carpet Floor Mats and Cargo Mat
60 Estimated invoice for all weather cargo mat
23,520 Total Invoice
23,385 Car price, including destination and accessories above
399 Doc fee
23,784 Purchase price (plus TTL)
23,784 Purchase Price
264 Over invoice
I used the fightingchance dot com method and got eight other proposals ranging from 1,926 over invoice to 457 over invoice.
Interestingly, we ended up purchasing from the first place we went to and nearest our house (after eliminating a closer dealership because we did not like our initial experience).
We did have one bid for a 2011 Prius Two for about $500 less out the door than our purchase (no 1000 incentive per what I found . Given the distance, additional hit for depreciation because it is a model year older, and no bluetooth we were happy paying a little more for what we got.
If you're shopping, good luck!
