    The internet is always fun.

    I was quoted $300.00 below DEALER INVOICE not MSRP. MSRP with options was $35999.00. So I am $4185.00 below MSRP. Three other dealers have already stated that they cannot do any better or quoted dealer invoice only. I must be at the bottom or near bottom because I cannot get any more movement from any other dealer, and believe ME, I tried.

    Dealer 1: $31671.00 15 min. from my house
    Dealer 2: $31814.00 20 min from my house
    Dealer 3: No Thanks, Cannot Match, Better Than Great Price, Buy It! 20 miles from my house
    Dealer 4: $32104.00 (Dealer Invoice?) 15 miles from my house
    Dealer 5: You'll never get the car, can't match price, come see me. 20 miles from my house.
    Dealer 6: $32275.00 3 miles from my house (walk in sales manager)
    Dealer 7: $32339.00 (same dealer as #6 internet sales manager)

    So, tell me, what did you pay?

    Price was $1600 below invoice... not below MSRP. I don't have the sticker with me, but I believe the sticker was around $33.2k (v6, prem pkg 1 (didn't want heated seats), carpets and cargo carpet, tow prep kit, rear bumper guard, mudguards. MSRP was likely a little more than $33,200 (I added mudguards at last minute that added $150 - installed which is not on the sticker) and I did not get the toyoguard as I wax my own cars and have towing service/replacement vehicle with USAA. My cost was $29,627 (including mudguards) plus tax/tag/title ($913). I could get the same car today for $400 less according to the USAA website (now $2,000 below INVOICE).

    Good luck with your purchase and do check out some buying services.

    "USAA Price $28,804"

    Same car here in NC is $29,200 OTD so you do have a good price.

    I think that is a better price than I got. Wife gave me my paperwork. I paid 595 for admin fee (didnt see the secretary, but assume it's not the pants that make her butt look big if I paid 595). My cost was 29,377 (including admin fee). Toyota incentive was $500 and dealer was $1100 below invoice plus whatever Toyota was offering - thus $1600 below invoice.

    I ordered mine and it took about five weeks to get. I would highly suggest you drive the one you are going to buy. My transmission clunks between 1st and 2nd and 2nd and 3rd gears the first few shifts and clunks when going into reverse. I have about 500 miles on mine now and will take it in to have it checked, but I was not anticipating problems like this. My guess is the fluid is low, but it's a sealed unit and only the dealer can check it. Also, the ones we test drove all had michelin tires. Ours has goodyear and they ride VERY hard. Much harder than the michelins.

    I just used the USSA car pricing guide, using my options, and got a price of $32,409. So, my current price is still better than USAA, even if it is higher than your price. I think there are a few reasons why.

    1. Destination charges to California are higher ($725.00).
    2. US military personnel get an additional $750.00 discount from Toyota.
    3. I have more/different options than you. Blizzard Pearl, PC, LA, NV, CQ, SA, SR, CF, V6, FWD.

    If you noticed, the pricing guides always ask for your Zip Code to calculate the destination charges.

    Thanks for the info, and great thanks for defending our freedom! $750.00 discount for military personnel is still not enough to repay your service.

    I think each dealer has a different price for USAA and that the toyota incentives are based on zip code. I think the shipping charge is the same nationwide - mine was $725 for Alabama. I am pleased with $1600 below invoice (model and options were irrelevant, price is $1600 below invoice total of car and options).

    I served more than 20 years, but was not eligible for the military discount as it does not apply to retirees. Some car companies offer discounts to deferred enlistees - i.e. someone who has a contract to join the service, but never served a day..., but exclude retirees. I think hyundai is the only company that offers retirees a discount and only on select models. It doesn't bother me, though, as there is no requirement to "give" anything to retirees. In any event, enjoy your car.

    Anyone have an idea how low the dealer will go to get rid of a 2009? Looking at a Venza with Nav, Sunroof, Tow, Mats, Prem #2, V6-FWD.

    Wife and I purchased 2010 Venza V6 AWD, Black w/ Ivory leather interior w/ premium package 2, pano roof, carpeted floor package and JBL stereo upgrade for $32,663 which included a dealer fee (tax, tags and registration costs not included), MSRP was $37,044. Also got 5yr loan for 2.9% from Toyota. I was also able to save $1100 by shopping around on a factory warranty, got a platinum warranty 8yr 75k for little over $700 by shopping different dealers for prices

    We actually bought our vehicle out of state about 1hr from where we live as local dealers couldn't even come close to this dealers price. Other than Toyota bumping our order back 3x, the salesman from the dealer was great keeping us informed with the progress and taking his time to explain all the features when we picked the vehicle up.

    I bought my extended warranty for $1695 and I recently cancelled it.
    I am going to purchase it from other dealer which cost me only $710 for 7yr/75k with no deductible.
  • I live in Connecticut. Today I test drove a 2010 Black V6 Venza. The only option I requested was a sunroof. I was given a MSRP of $31730, and sales price of $28995 PLUS $1195 for the sunroof, for a TOTAL of $30,190. Any thoughts??

    How does $24445 before tax and title fee sound for a 2010 4cyl FWD Venza? Only options would be 5 piece carpet mats. We almost went for it today but they weren't giving us quite enough for our trade-in (2009 Camry).

    For comparison I checked the USAA website (other buying services offer similar pricing). The 4 cyl Venza including shipping, but no options is listed at $23,255. If you belong to USAA or Costco or perhaps even a credit union, you could likely get a better price than what you were offered. Good luck. You may think $1,000 is insignificant, but it means a lot on a monthly payment or it can buy a lot of gasoline.
  • wheeler21wheeler21 Posts: 3
    I just checked USAA and I came up with $24,269 for the price with no options. Is it possible there are different prices depending on your zip? Also when I added in the mats, the USAA price is $24445.

    FYI, there is a large volume (Boch) area dealer that just advertised $4000 off sticker on ANY 2010 Venza, AWD, 4 or 6 cyl.
    When I bought my 2010 in March, the sticker for 4cyl AWD was $28900 and I got it for around $25500 if I remember correctly.
  • alan226alan226 Posts: 7
    I think you can do ALOT better on the price. You should be able to get at least $4000 off the sticker....
  • wheeler21wheeler21 Posts: 3
    Actually the price of $24445 was from TrueCar.com. I'm in Western Mass and that's the best price they found for my area. I put in a Boston area zip and the best price was slightly higher. I can only guess that dealers in other areas are offering lower prices. I'm not sure how far is feasible to travel for a car purchase. I guess it depends on the savings. I made a $4000 off sticker offer to Boch on a similar model...still waiting to hear. I've also tried BJs and upromise auto buying services. Both price out higher than $24445 for a base model with 5 piece carpet mats.

    Always make the Dealer make the first offer and shop OTD... because we all pay it.

    Please let me know what u think about my deal.
  • jb_turnerjb_turner Posts: 702
    If $33,500 is OTD you made a good deal.
  • aaasupr1aaasupr1 Posts: 3
    Here was the deal we got today, we were either going with this or a Ford Edge.
    Vehicle was 32500 on the window. There were no rebates. Once they knew that we wanted it, they without hesitation went to invoice. Invoice was 31000. We ended up about 5000 apart, and explained that Ford was offering us 3500 in rebates. We were about to walk out when they committed to a price of 27500. We bought. This was a fully loaded V6, except for no leather. All the other upgrades, even the really nice 20in wheels.

    What dealer did you go?

    The $27,500 was the sticker before the incentives ($2K). We paid Virginia's 3% tax on the $25,500 purchase price. I missed the 2 yr free service package.
  • MSRP $33,174 - FWD 4 cylinder, with JBL, conv. package, comfort package, security package, sun roof and floor mats.

    Price paid $29,000 plus $500 doc fee and taxes. Is this a good deal?

    Anyone know the current residual value for the Venza 4-cyl AWD in NJ?
  • xtenixxtenix Posts: 3
    Possible to share the dealership info?
  • hi guys,

    I recently went to a couple dealers here in CA and wanted to buy the standard 4 cyl. 2010 Venza and was trying to see if 25,500 is too low for the card OTD. I went to 4 dealers around my area they are giving it to me 28-29k OTD. What do you guys suggest. Am I asking for too much cause 2011 are not here yet. please help

    I'd suggest you look into a buying service. I know fees/taxes are different everywhere, but for the 6 cyl venza with option pkg 2, tow prep kit, rear bumper protector, mud guards, rear carpet mat plus a few other things I paid just over $30k OTD. With the toyota incentives at this point, I can buy the same care at the same dealership in GA for $600 less than when I bought it in April (wud make it about $29,500 or so. Through USAA, I paid $1,600 under invoice. I looked the last week and it was $2,200 under invoice.
  • thnx for the suggestion. but logistically what would you think i can get the car OTD the cost for TTL here is 11.5%. Im thinking if there invoices are around 22-23k, is even $26k out the door too little because im not getting anyting else.
