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 1195 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!

Wow, You're getting a very good deal. How many percent of tax to apply in you state? in CA we have 8.25% for tax.
Could you share that information? Thanks.

Just brought home my 2012 Prius Two. Got it for 22088.00 plus TTL. No extras, no add ons, no nothing tagged on.
Talk to Ryan from internet sales at Miller Toyota in Anaheim. This was their advertised special, except it was a black one. They were supposed to only have one at that price, but gave Ryan a call and he got me the silver one I wanted. Brand new. No test drives. 4 miles from factory. Full tank of gas, floor mats, fresh detail, all for freezies.
I opted for the 6 yr 100k extended warranty for an extra 1,028. They got me 2.75% APR 60month financing too. My total per month is about 375 for 60 months, plus 4400 down up front.
I think I got a great deal. My buddy at Longo told me the best they could do was 23,300.
