The is a big red flag here.
They should not try to charge a dealer prep fee.
Make them remove it or go elsewhere. Another dealer nickel and diming you.

I went to a lot of trouble to post here, mostly because I found this site about a week before I bought and I saved a bundle, and hope I can help you to do the same.
We purchased a red Prius Two, with 2 miles on it. It included carpet mats AND cargo mat, and was listed for $25,239. Our purchase price, before TTL was $21,972. The key information here is that this represented a 13% reduction in price. I travel a lot and therefore could buy anywhere in the country. I tried many places recommended by this list, but was unable to find any sales significantly below this amount.
This was purchased from Earl Stewart Toyota in West Palm Beach, Fl., and was a cash purchase.

Wow - that's over $1,000 less than we paid, and through my efforts and research, it's clear we got a great deal. Is there some other piece of info that led to such a low price? Hail damage? On the lot for waaaaay over 90 days? Some kind of loyalty discount program??

I just got a 2012 Toyota Prius five model in blizzard pearl for $28,445 plus fees. The sticker was 31,xxx. We feel like that was a good deal. Got it at City Toyota in Daly City on September 24th which is right before the $5 a gallon gas here in the SF Bay Area. $1,000 down and our 36 month lease is only $378 a month including wear and tear package from Toyota. Our mileage has been only about 38-39 mpg I know it's still breaking in but when do we start to see the increase in gas mileage? Also what are some good tire replacements for the Toyos that came on the five model? The Toyos seem kinda loud. Thanks in advance. Currently has 678 miles. Bought it with 15 miles
#1044 of 1195 Extended Warranty Buy Back
Oct 15, 2012 (7:08 am)
What about the extended warranty where they say they'll refund the full value if not used. This is coming from the dealer. Seems like if I never use it and get my money back, it's worth it in the case of a really big expense.

INCLUDING tax and plates?!? I'd say you're being greedy if you want a better deal than that!

I agree, and our Toyota dealer sold us on the "full refund" extended warranty. I asked every question I could think of, and it seems to be on the up & up. It was over $2,000 but hey either we use it and are glad we have it, or we don't use it and get the $$$ back. I can't figure out what they get out of it, other than interest on our money over the term...
