  • That price seems high given that people in CA getting offers for Prius III @23.5K (w/o nav).

    Have you checked truecar.com for your zip code? From my experience truecar.com gives the closest/lowest prices people able to get. You may have to negotiate aggressively with 3-4 different dealers to get that price.

    Good luck.

    Thank you for your reponse. I also saw an ad this weeeknd another dealer advertising $23500 for a prius III w/ NAV. I think they were selling two at that price. Would it be realistic to think I can get the dealer to match that price wit Nav or lower the original quote? I am supposed to be going to the dealer today to test drive and possibly sign the paper. Please advise!
  • That's a reasonable price if the NAV package is included. Did you purchase it? Which dealership? Would you mind sharing the out-the-door price and the breakdown of the costs? Thanks!
  • Is it reasonable to try and negotiate Prius-II for $22000 (plus TTL). I am not sure if any dealer in Maryland will agree for that, but if they do, my OTD will be $23,720. Is that reasonable? Is that too high?

    Sales figures September 2011. Toyota production is now at "normal" levels but yet sales have dropped. Translation: Look for bigger incentives on Toyo vehicles in the next few months! I had noticed a build up of Prii on dealer lots in September, this article explains it nicely. Dealers will start dealing more aggressively now to get rid of excess inventory.

    The price I was quote did not include nav. I have not purchased the vehicle yet. The price was from Truecars.com dealers.
  • I did not research for Prius II so I can't comment on it.
    I see that truecar.com quote is very close to what Toyota dealer in my area is willing to deal.

    >>>Is it reasonable to try and negotiate Prius-II for $22000 (plus TTL).
    Why not? Try with 3-4 different dealers in your area to see if they would go for it. At the very least you know where the bottom is.

    If you are not in a hurry I think Toyota is not doing too well last quarter, and given the uncertainty in the stock market & economy, they will be more willing to deal, or Toyota is going to offer some incentives to move car.

    Good luck.
  • I bought a Prius III (with Nav) for $24,750 is MD. Tax, tags and dealer processing fee ($200) are extra.

    Was this a decent price?
  • The incentives have started. In Southern CA, Toyota is offering 0% APR for 36 months on various vehicles (Prius is one of them). Offer ends 10/31 but it wouldn't surprise me if they extended it till the end of the year. 2012 Prius will be in dealer lots in early January, so expect Toyota to ramp up incentives from now till end of December.

    I think thats a good price, I just got a prius 3 in southern cali for $1000 less than that. usually they charge $2000 more navigation.
  • Just got an offer in Maryland for 2011 Prius III white with Navi for $25100 with 0% for 36 months. Is this a good deal? Thanks!
  • If that is an out the door price, it is a very reasonable quote.
  • Quite good compared to what I got in MD itself.

    For Prius 3 (with Nav) I got $24,750 + (Tax, Tags and dealer processing fee of $200) and my interest rate is 2.74%
  • It's not OTD. Which dealership did you get yours?
  • Koons Westminister

    However, since you are getting 0% financing, you numbers look good even if it does not include tax and tags (I am assuming yours include freight).

    As I said my $24,750 included freight, but not tax, tags and dealer processing fee of $200
  • Yes, it includes freight. I'm in Montgomery County. How do you like your Prius so far? It's amazing that it gets 50+MPG.
  • Have had it for all of 4 days now and love it! I live in Howard County and was a hike to to pick up the Prius, but was worth it as I got the best deal there.

    Your deal looks better than mine though. All the best,

    I'm planning to buy a Prius III now. Can you give me the name of the dealer that you got your car from in Montgomery County? So far all the offers that I got for Prius ||| is almost $25000 without any options? Thanks.
  • Hi. I'm thinking about leasing a 2011 Pkg 5, and am wondering about RV and Money factor's on a 3 yr./ 12K per year lease. Also, any idea about upfront costs and how they break down? Thanks!
  • I live in Howard county and work in Montgomery county. However I picked the Prius from Koons Westminister. It was a bit of hike, but I got better deal there than in Howard or Montgomery county.
  • Try Fitzgerald in Gaithersburg. Good luck!

    Pass by a dealer today asking about new Camry hybrid, the dealer offer this price for a base Prius II plus TTL. Kind of enticing to get it. Any comments?
  • Looks decent - if I had that offer last week when I was shopping, I would have bought it

    Did he give you an out-the-door price? Any other add-ons (mats, etc)? Sometimes they low ball you and add additional fees at the end. One dealer gave us a super low quote (20K+fees) and then tried to add lots of additional fees, including a $600 processing fee. Total ballooned to over $25K when all was said and done, which was not very competitive. Needless to say, we walked. Always ask for the breakdown of the costs and the total price.
  • Just wanted to confirm if an OTD price of $30,950 for 2011 Prius 4 w/ nav is a good deal. I wish the 0% financing was available in our region. Any comments??
  • thanks. I did not ask for the exact OTD price. He told me TTL is about 10%, including 7.75% sales tax here.

    Lots of Prius on lot. I see local ads for $22000 for Prius II. , with "10 available", so it does not look like a low ball offer. May wait some time to see what Prius V look like,

    I'm in Southern CA also. Lots of Prii inventory at most dealers in LA County. Mostly in Silver, Gray or Black though. Beach and Claremont have had loss leaders in their ads in LA Times. Which dealer had the ad with 20 available?

    See one of my previous posts on exact cost breakdown for a 2007 Camry we bought in '07. I have been using it as a guide to roughly figure out costs on top of the price the dealers have given us. In general, 10% for all other costs sounds about right.
  • I live in Orange county, the Toyota of Orange posted on the local newspaper (Orange County register) of $22000 on Prius II with "10 available. The neighborhood dealer whom I talked to yesterday had black and silver at the $21450 price.
