    I just bought a 2012 Prius IV, with the deluxe solar package. We paid 31,500. I've only used it twice, but everytime I do I have visions of dollar signs in my mind. Does anyone know how to use the ABC, DEF mode when in the ipod interface? My alphabet buttons aren't highlighted...

    Since this discussion is specifically about 2010 Prius pricing, you will probably have better luck with your question in one of our more general Prius discussions. Here's the list:

  • Purchased a 2012 Prius Two in Tempe Az for $264 over invoice, calculated as:

    22,560 Car
    760 Destination
    140 Carpet Floor Mats and Cargo Mat
    60 Estimated invoice for all weather cargo mat
    23,520 Total Invoice

    23,385 Car price, including destination and accessories above
    399 Doc fee :(
    23,784 Purchase price (plus TTL)

    23,784 Purchase Price
    23,520 Invoice
    264 Over invoice

    I used the fightingchance dot com method and got eight other proposals ranging from 1,926 over invoice to 457 over invoice.

    Interestingly, we ended up purchasing from the first place we went to and nearest our house (after eliminating a closer dealership because we did not like our initial experience).

    We did have one bid for a 2011 Prius Two for about $500 less out the door than our purchase (no 1000 incentive per what I found :(. Given the distance, additional hit for depreciation because it is a model year older, and no bluetooth we were happy paying a little more for what we got.

    If you're shopping, good luck!

  • Wow, You're getting a very good deal. How many percent of tax to apply in you state? in CA we have 8.25% for tax.
    Could you share that information? Thanks.

  • Anyone recently bought Prius II in Bay Area?
    How much OTD? I'm going to buy one very soon.
    Thank you very much.

  • Just brought home my 2012 Prius Two. Got it for 22088.00 plus TTL. No extras, no add ons, no nothing tagged on.

    Talk to Ryan from internet sales at Miller Toyota in Anaheim. This was their advertised special, except it was a black one. They were supposed to only have one at that price, but gave Ryan a call and he got me the silver one I wanted. Brand new. No test drives. 4 miles from factory. Full tank of gas, floor mats, fresh detail, all for freezies.

    I opted for the 6 yr 100k extended warranty for an extra 1,028. They got me 2.75% APR 60month financing too. My total per month is about 375 for 60 months, plus 4400 down up front.

    I think I got a great deal. My buddy at Longo told me the best they could do was 23,300.
  • Nuttyprof1,

    Thanks for information. Price is good. 2.75% also good.
    Anyone do better in Bay Area? Thanks for sharing.

    Just spent this afternoon with a friend to get her Prius 2 at DCH Toyota Torrance. Friday LA Times ad price was $21778 and it was $23730 OTD. Great experience with both salesman and finance (no upsales or talk-down). Best yet, they matched credit union rate at 1.99% for 5 year nothing down.
  • I'm looking to purchase a PriusV Model three or five very soon. I was hoping anyone can share the deals they have negotiated. Has anyone gotten the V under invoice?

    We are located in the Bay Area (San Jose).

  • $20,980 price is very good. But I wonder what's rate of tax at your state? Only a little less than $1000 for tax?
    In Bay Area , CA is 8.25% for sale tax. I'm not sure but in LA, CA only $7.25% sale tax.
    Thank you for sharing.
