    I just looked at the USAA website. For my area the venza is still $2,200 below invoice. I bought mine for $1,600 below invoice. IF it were me, I'd probably settle on a number between 1600 and 2000 below invoice and not go over that. The taxes and fees will be what they will be. If they don't want to deal with you, check some of the buying services. I believe AAA has one, costco, some credit unions, etc. Good luck.

    What is your location and zip code? I tried the USAA website and the model is only $725 under invoice in my zip code.

    Bought a Silver 4 Cyl with Conv Package and Tow Prep.

    Retail: $26,275
    Conv Pkg: $860
    Tow: $220
    Delivery: $795
    Dealer Options: $499 (nitrogen, srtipes, floormats, pure profit)

    Feel pretty good about it, first new car I have ever bought. Maybe could have haggled some more but I really wanted to be in and out and not waste a whole day. Good deal?

    For anyone looking to buy a used Venza, in November 2009 we bought a used one with 12K miles at San Francisco Toyota for $26,300 ($29,000 out the door). V6, leather, Panoramic roof, JBL Sound, integrated Bluetooth, Smart Key System, rear bumper protector, chrome accent door handles, floor mats. The car was in excellent condition.

    We looked at new models with the same features and it was going to be around $33K using USAA car buying service. We couldn't be happier buying "almost new" and got all the goodies we wanted. Buying from San Francisco Toyota was the best car buying experience we have ever had. No BS when negotiating with them.

    I read thru every forum I could find, read all the reviews and looked at all the competitors before deciding on the Venza.
    Just picked up:
    Red V-6 AWD
    Comfort
    Conv
    JBL
    Panoramic Roof
    Secuirity
    Tow PKG
    Floor Mats
    Sticker was: 36449
    Paid: 30449
    That is 2383 below invoice and 1483 below the USAA price. No trade involved, end of the month, and a hungry dealer looking to make me a customer for life. I'm exremely satisfied with the deal and now just hope the vehicle does not disappoint.

    Hey guys,

    Im looking for some feedback on this deal I have lined up for a 2010 Venza V6 fully loaded but no entertainment packages. MSRP is $36k my price is $32.3k

    I was planning on buying, but they arent running any special finance deals this month. So instead, Im looking at leasing at the .00050 money factor. Then if/when I decide to buy it out, I will do that.

    So first, Im looking for feedback on the price. Second, any thoughts on my plan to lease now to take advantage of the great money factor?

    Thanks!
  • Guys,

    My first time... just purchased blizzard pearl/ivory V6 Venza w/ navi,pano roof,leather,smart key, back up camera, power lift gate. Sticker was $36K. Price Paid was $30,900 plus tax & reg. I talked to several dealers and they could not match the price. Few offered $31,900. I was lucky in that the dealer only had 3 venza's left and were looking to move them.

    contacted few dealers after using true car and amex.. but the best deal I got was from a dealer I contacted directly.
    :)

    I would imagine Toyota should be offering a much more aggressive deal on the Venza by now. I took delivery of mine on 12/31/09 when the dealer was packed with people trying to get in for the last day of tax incentive. There's literally no Venza on the lot and the shipment just landed the dealership on 12/30/09. Seriously, not the best time to deal on a car. Well, I did. I know the dealer has room to throw in more discount. But knowing there's limited inventory, I had no bargaining leaverage.

    The best price I landed was $315xx (MSRP $357xx). 2010 Pearl White V6 FWD with Premium package #1 (leather, smart key, power liftgate, HID Xeon, Auto High beam, back up camera..etc), with Navigation.

    Just FYI for people shopping for a Venza.
  • Paid $22,500 for a 2009 Venza, V6, leather, FWD, 5700 miles, everything else base in Egg Harbor NJ. The car was practically brand new. I would have liked the sunroof and upgraded stereo but I couldn't pass up on this price without.
  • Got a 2010 Venza V6 AWD, navigation, leather, luxury premium pkg 2, back up cam, panoramic moonroof, smart key, seat warmer, etc..... MSRP $38777.
    Got it out the door $37500
    $33900 + tax and fees.
    Sacramento, CA
    Good deal?

    We have a choice between a new 2010 (demo with 4000 miles) AWD or a certified used 2009 FWD with 13000 miles at a different dealer.

    The new car is V6, AWD, Comfort, Convenience, JBL upgrade, 5 pc Floor Mats. Sticker is $34,609. Dealer is offering it for $29,900.

    The used car is the same V6 and options, except it is FWD, a 2009, and 13000 miles. Sales prices is $27,000.

    Any suggestions? Is the new/demo price a good one?

    I am leaning toward new because the difference is not that great when factoring in the new car warranty (e.g. I get a full 36 months), AWD, 2 years free maintenance, and USB port (we are ipod'ers).

    Any thoughts?
  • I just looked at the USAA site for the V6 AWD with the items you listed. The invoice was about $200 higher than yours (included the 5 piece carpet not just the floormats). The sale price was $28,800. But price is based on zip code. I believe credit unions and some other buying services offer the same prices. With that said, if with the choices you presented I would go with the V6. It will still be tagged as new and you get the warranty.
  • I think you are over paying for the demo. Even though it has never been officially registered, it is a used car. I live in eastern MA and for some comparisons:

    I purchased a AWD 4cyl in Jan sicker $28900 got it for around $25400.
    At the time of the purchase I was also looking at 6cyl AWD. Sticker was $31900, offered to me for $28200.

    There is a dealer in Eastern MA that is advertising $4400 off sticker on ANY Venza, 4 or 6 cyl, FWD or AWD.

    I would think that you could get the used demo for for under $28k
    For basically the same price I would buy new. The is alot of inventory around right now with the 2011's starting to hit. For example, IRA Toyota in Eastern MA has 80 2011 Venza's in stock.
  • I have a Acura TL coming up on lease.
    I like the Venza. Have $2000 stipend as down payment from work. I see the current offer (link on this site) as:
    Lease a new 2010 VENZA for only $249 a month for 36 months!
    $249.00 per month for 36 months
    $2699.00 due at signing
    I am in NJ and will need 12K miles (offer is .15 ea after 12K)
    Thoughts????? If no good what are you all paying out there
  • got it from Prestige in Mahawah/Ramsey. Had same deals all over NJ. My advice to everyone is to get a deals from dealers via emails. While they compete with each other, you get a best deal possible without actually going to dealership.

    I started with emailing every dealer in NY/NJ with exact description of what i'm looking for. Once i start getting quotes, elimination process kicked in to weed out "bad dealerships" and then narrowed the search to 2-3 dealers. At first Prestige said no to the proposed deal and i was going to go with another dealer, then they called me a week later with accepted offer.

    thinking abt buying a venza...
    what to aim for in the bargaining process (OTD price) for 4 cyl-everything without navigation+panoramic roof and 6 cyl-everything without navigation+panoramic?

    Thanks!
  • I just got offered a FWD 4 cyl with Premium Package 2, Navigation, Panoramic Roof, Tow Package, and Toyoguard
    Total MSRP 35,964
    Selling Price 30,990 before taxes etc.

    Is that a good deal or should I try and make them go lower?

    Just bought a 2011 Venza 3.5L AWD with Premium Package #2 (LX - essentially everything minus tow package), Navigation, (NV) and Panoramic Sunroof (SR). MSRP was $38,485. My final price was $34,375 or approx. 11% off MSRP. That's pretty close to the best deal I've seen on a new Venza.

    Just used email to find dealerships that were looking to make a deal. Got the best price and then checked with a few more dealers to see if anyone wanted the sale by beating my best price. The final price I got is about $400-500 under the Dealer's Factory Invoice. What do others think?
  • Hello,
    I am shopping for a 2011 Venza v6 AWD. I am asking this forum to tell me what is the lowest price we can get for a fully loaded Venza v6 in CT. The dealer we went to yesterday gave us a quote of $38,283 including taxes, registration and dealership fee. This also includes floor mats/cargo mat, convenience package, comfort package, DVD Navigation System, Security Package, Panoramic Glass roof, tow package and wheel locks. How should we bargain to get the best price, should we use the invoice price or MSRP price? What have everyone paid for a 2011 fully loaded v6? How do we know if the price is fair? Is dealership fee a necessary fee to charge to us as customers or we can waive that? any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you very much!

    Am I crazy to think I can get a 2011 V6 2WD w/ Prem pkg #2, Nav, DVD, & some small add-ons features (i.e. door guard molding, etc...) for $33K? $33K includes TTL. Not sure if this is realistic or not. Any advice is appreciated.
  • I honestly feel the Venza is way overpriced for what it offers. If I had wanted the larger display screen (this should be standard by now??), leather interior, and larger wheels it amounted to $37K. I can have the same options on a Murano for $5k less. For the base price of the vehicle it seems very underwhelming. Does anyone else feel that way?
  • billqsbillqs Posts: 1
    A dealership has offered us a 2009 Venza with only 6000 miles for $23299, clean Carfax and all standard equipment. We asked to negotiate with them on price but they stood firm so we walked. Is this a good deal?

    I shopped prices in both Washington and Oregon. We picked up our Bacelona Red with Gray Leather interior, Premium Pkg 2, Nav, sunroof, tow package, rear bumper protector, floor mats, All weather rear cargo mat, and a few other things for $38000 out the door and that included sales tax and license of around 10%. Purchase price was well into the dealer holdback. Probably at least $1000 under invoice. I think invoice was around $36,200 and sticker was over $40k. Also got the Toyotacare as well. But I think that is included with all new toyotas.

    We looked at the Accord Crosstour, the Acura RDX, and the Ford Edge and Flex. The Edge drops like a rock in terms of resale and is more SUV than car, the Accord Crosstour has terrible blind spots, back seat room is average at best, and rear visibility is a joke, and the RDX has terrible fuel economy and it runs on premium fuel, and maintenence costs are not cheap. The Venza had more room, better MPG, and the resale has been quite strong up in this area. Sure, the plastic use is not the best inside, but the audio, nav and Ipod system is better than many higher end cars, kids have more than enough legroom and shoulder room, and the motor pulls pretty good for a V6.....not super peppy but enough to at least feel like you have something under the hood. Another big selling point is that the V6 needs virtually no maintenence until 120k miles. Just change the oil and filter and get it inspected. Then at 120k the spark plugs need to be changed. Much less replacing of this and that then the other vehicles. No timing belts, etc.

    I tried to get two used 2009's that were AWD and V6, both with nav and they were listed around $30k and both were sold.

    I'm shopping for a Venza V6 with AWD. What price did you pay and what options/packages did you get? Also, who is a good dealer in the area? I just got back from a bad shopping experience at Prestige Toyota in Ramsey, NJ, where they refused to give me price quote because I was not ready to buy yet. They gave me reasons such as when you are ready to buy, the price will vary with different incentive programs. Like duh, other brands and dealers also have incentives and they all gave me a price quote before I was ready to buy.

    I'm comparing a Venza against other AWD alternatives to replace my 00 Subaru Legacy GT. I have driven the Audi A4; Volvo S60 T6; Ford Edge; and Subaru Legacy, and I did get price quotes from those dealerships. Obviously, there are differences between the cars in terms of driving dynamics, performance, reliability, size, etc... The Venza appears to be a reasonably good value, but it would help if the dealership had provided me with a quote so that I could compare to the other brands and models, both objectively and subjectively.

    I would be curious to hear from those who also compared the current A4 and S60.
  • Hi ..I just ordered a 2011 Venza. I live in Northwest Indiana about 35 miles from Chicago. I drove so many smaller SUV and crossovers for the last 6 weeks. I decided on a Venza. I now have a 2006 Trailblazer that understandably does not get the best gas mileage. I had to order as I wanted everything and added a remote start from the factory. Premium package and tow prep package. They were quoting me $40,000 ! I ended up after much going back and forth for $36,000. They were building it and added my name woo hoo ! LOL It also has the lower door molding rear bumper protector with several floor mats. It had everything from my list of must haves. What really did it for me was the weekend of the 17th ! My favorite team Michigan State played Notre Dame in South Bend. Tradition to tailgate for hours before. Several Venzas were there and I talked to all the owners. They ABSOLUTELY loved their Venzas. To me that said it all. My favorite team lost but 3rd party feedback was priceless ! I should have my Venza the 3rd week of October will repost then !
  • I'll keep it quick. They are getting rid of the old Venzas for the new incoming 2012 models. My MSRP was 39k, fully loaded. I negotiated and got it down to 32.8k. What trick I used? Just told them I'm getting the same Venza for 32k with another dealer and I'm here for better service. Just bought it three weeks ago. Hope that helps!
