2013 and Earlier - Toyota Corolla Prices Paid and Buying Experiences



  • The dealership where I bought my 2010 Corolla S ($14150 invoice) no longer has any 2010. I just checked their internet inventory. I bought mine more than two weeks ago and at that time they still have a few left. In fact, just last week, they still listed two S with tinted windows for $14588.
    They are listing now a manager's special for 2010 LE at $13,488.

    They are listing two 2011 Corolla LE model for $14988.

    Their internet sale manager is easy to deal with. If you come into the showroom bring a printout from or some equivalent site.

    I was just happy to get the car at a very decent price. It was a good experience. If you live within 200 miles it might worth a drive.
  • It seems the 2010 Corolla inventory ran out in some places more rapidly than others. In Columbus, OH area, Tansky has 71, Germain has 24, Toyota West have 18 and Toyota direct has 15: that is 128 even without counting the independent dealers! I guess anyone looking for 2010 models still should look into nearby city inventories, or may be even the state next door, since 2010 models have much bigger incentives than 2011 models and comes with 0% APR (2011 are 1.9% at best).

    I second that opinion. Milton Ruben's Internet sales manager (Wayne Bumpus) is indeed a very nice guy. I bought a Camry from him last year and did everything over the phone, no hassles and paid only $50 more than the offer I made. There were no surprises or long pointless haggling, I was in and out of the dealership in 45 mins with my car. Now looking for a Corolla and I am still looking at them over any of my local "st(d)-ealers".

    Is it auto or manual? Thanks.
  • From the original post by Souravv "It's the auto-trans basic trim"... automatic transmission!!! :)
  • Just bought a new 2011 Corrolla LE. MSRP was $18,384. I got car for $15,078.50 plus dealer fee of $396.50. Makes total $15,475. I feel it was good deal. Anyone agree?

    $15,475 is a heckuva deal! I've seen a few local dealers advertising them for that exact price also- any chance you're in the Atlanta area? At least one of them is offering the 2011 Camry (base/standard) for $17,275 including the "dealer fee"- another killer deal!
  • Yes Im in ATL, and I believe the deals may go away today due to the part issue from Japan. The Dealer was Cherokee County Toyota and they were super friendly. Second vehicle I have bought from them.
  • Hey guys,

    I know alot of you are all rushing out in a buying frenzie to get a 2010 while the incentives are still out there... but i'm in need of replacing a totalled (Hail, can ya believe it!!) 2009 Corolla S w/Moonroof. I found a few and they are listed as $20,150 including carpet mats... and I was wondering what sort of price i should/could be shooting for. I'm expecting a quote back from a dealer that returned my call quicker than others and would like to get an idea before I try and discuss anything. Whether it matters or not... i'm not worried about financing as if i can get something for less than $20k... we'll be paying cash.

    What are your thoughts? Also... we could also get a 2011 Corolla LE w/Premium Package for $20,400 MSRP..... and i guess i'd have the same question... they seem to be worth about the same. Does that mean the OTD price (we pay taxes at the courthouse... so OTD for me is literally just dealer doc fees and any extra crap we decide to get at the dealer, plus the negotiated price of the vehicle).

    Let me know what you think,

    Thanks in Advance,
    Brian / ChevyNovaLN

    Which dealer in MA did you buy from. I just got an over the phone first quote from Boch Toyota on a 2010 LE for 14,700. Dounds about $700 too high. What do you think?
  • mthomasdbmthomasdb Posts: 15
    I just closed a deal today for my sister-in-law on a new 2010 leftover Corolla LE with floor and cargo mats, keyless entry, cruise control, heated outside mirrors, etc. as well as all standard LE equipment. Her daughter qualified for the $1000 college graduate rebate. She ended up paying $13, 600.00 (no joke). There was no trade in. Doc fees and taxes were extra as taxes are paid separately in RI direct to the registry of motor vehicles and not to the dealer.
  • Is it going to cost more to buy a 2010 now than last month since the 1500 rebate was not renewed? Would I be better off waiting til May to see if they bring it back. I did see Edmunds (maybe another site) showing a dealer incentive of 1000. I only saw that on one site. I want to get a 2010 S for about 15K.

    There is still a $1000.00 rebate. The problem is that the supply is dwindling rapidly. This dealer only had a few left in silver and one in tan (this was as of Friday15th). With everything happening in Japan (yes, this one was built there!) the supply might dry up faster than you think.
  • where did you see the $1000 rebate? I'm getting quotes for an S for $16999 in the Dallas/FW area
  • what was this price, 15,078 covering?
  • That was for the car, 2011 LE model plus mats. All I had to add was 396.50 dealer fee. GA tax, tag, title.

    Any body bought a new Corolla off late and want to share their experience?

    I heard that the supply is short for Japanese vehicles (Japan situation) and with summer being a peak season for car dealers this is a bad time to negotiate or get a new car. Any thoughts?

    Even though the Corolla is manufactured in Ontario, the 2011 model isn't being discounted significantly at present. The same goes for the Civic (2011 and 2012), Hyundai Elantra and Chevy Cruze.

    The 2011 Mazda3 i Touring 4-door, Kia Forte EX 4-door and Nissan Sentra 2.0S are still available (as of this posting) at the best discounts among compact models. They are selling for 10-12% off MSRP according to The 2012 Mazda3 is due in a few months and will feature a mild 'refresh' and new engine and transmission options, so the 2011 should continue to be discounted in the coming months- a very good deal, IMO!
