So 20,295 plus tax, tags, dealer fee. What was the dealer fee? This price is good enough to even consider flying in for it.
BTW, did you drive several of them? I drove FOUR this past weekend in Boston area - they all had been on the lot over six months, and they all had a problem with vibration when coasting at 50-70 mph. Even a new 2013 had the issue slightly, but my 2010 with Michelin Energy Savers A/S does not, and it's got 50K on it.
#1123 of 1193 Thoughts on 2013 Prius Four Quote
Jan 27, 2013 (4:28 pm)
Looking at a 2013 Blizzard Pearl Four trim. Best internet quote I got in CA is $27,395 with floor/cargo mats before TTL/doc fees.
For those who are looking for or have purchased a similar 2012/2013 Prius, how does this compare?
Based on quotes from other dealerships, it won't get much lower than that. Or can it?
#1125 of 1193 How much of a discount do you expect on a 2012 vs 2013 Prius right now?
Jan 31, 2013 (3:30 pm)
I can get a 2012 Toyota Prius Three with solar roof for $24,809 + TTL, or a 2013 Prius Three with solar roof for $25,944 + TTL. I'm inclined to get the 2012, since I plan to keep my car for awhile.
What do you think?
#1126 of 1193 question about the 0% APR financing
Jan 31, 2013 (3:33 pm)
One thing I forgot to mention is that the 2012 Prius has 0% APR financing available. We can pay with cash, but if we can get 0% APR financing, I figure we may as well. Are there any hidden fees with this option? like the title transfer after paying off the loan?

That seems to be a very good price on a Prius III w/solar roof. I was just quoted $25700 + $500 doc + TTL. Your quote is giving me pause. I would jump on that. If you don't, mind telling me where it is?

If I might put my 2 cents in, I think the question about how much of a discount to expect starts from the wrong premise. I always thought the way to get the best price was to start with dealer's cost (which you can find on Edmund's) on the make, model, options you want and decide how much "profit" you are willing to give the dealer. Note that cost does not include ANY fees, destination charges, ttl, etc. So, your final price out the door is cost + profit + destination charge + ttl. I would NEVER agree to document charges or advertising costs...those are just not-so-hidden ways to up the price. If Edmunds tells you that your region has an average higher or lower price, then use that as a guideline also. Good luck!
#1130 of 1193 Prius III w/Solar Roof
Feb 03, 2013 (4:24 am)
I just paid $27200 for a Red Prius III w/solar roof package. This was out-the-door in Durham, NC. I could have saved a little more - maybe $800 - had I flown to Florida, where I found the same vehicle for $26000. But the flight, gas, and probably hotel would have cost me $400 total, plus my time, so I just went to the local dealer, showed them my quotes from other local dealers and this one in Florida, and they met me half way. I thought that was fair. They beat five other local dealers by $600, who were all around $28k otd.
