#1056 of 1267 2012 Prius III in SF Bay Area
Oct 27, 2012 (11:34 pm)
Base Prius III with carpet/mats. 24K before tax and title. All quotes ranged between 23.9 - 24.5K.
Most dealers were willing to meet lower quotes from other dealers if it was in a written form
(e.g. an email). This forum has been very helpful in getting a good idea about the market price.
One suggestion - if you plan to finance your car through Toyota, please get a decent idea about what someone with your credit score can get in Toyota these days before walking into the
dealership, or even better get a pre-approved loan from a lender with good rates (typically a
credit union) - so that the finance guy cannot low ball you with interest rates.

Wow, they cut the Karr down half, I wish I had read this before. I got charged 600 bucks for that aftermarket alarm. And how on Earth can Toyota approve that their alarm will NOT void waranty? Factory VIP alarm cost maybe around the ballpark of 300 bones not including installation, but dude, this alarm business is lucrative. I don't even have the solar roof, just the lower side moldings and illum sills, my otd is almost the same as yours. which dealership you bought it from? Anyone else in San Diego get Karr alarm?
#1059 of 1267 Looking for Prius III in San Jose area.

The best deal I have seen for a Prius III in San Jose area so far is 23,888 with 0% financing during the labour day weekend. Has anyone come across any better deals? Is Toyota going to offer 0% APR financing after 11/05 ?

Yeah, me too, I also got suckered to DCH Torrance last weekend for a Prius Two for the same $21,488 lie and promised no strings attached, just come in and sign paper and pay. Long story short, I show up with my checkbook and was told yes, will honor price but all the cars I wanted come with alarm, coating, wheel lock and door guards for an additional $1,500 mark up, totally unprofessional. Agree, stay away from DCH Torrance, I wasted 2.5 hrs. & 65 miles. Next best price found was at Toyota Orange for the same car (blizzard pearl) for 22,955+TTL and came to $24.4 OTD, written quote from some guy at the internet dept. Anyone with experience dealing with Orange here? or any better dealers to shop around?
#1064 of 1267 2012 Prius 3 buying experience.

I purchased a new black pkg 3 Prius for $23,806.00 +ttl from Grossinger City Toyota in Chicago, sticker price was $26,585.00. Negotiated the price over the phone. I did my research and feel that I got a great price. Only problem was that they didn't have my first choice in color, silver with dark gray interior. Overall experience with the dealer was very good, no pressure to purchase extended warranties etc.
