  • Hi Sam,

    I live in Charlotte and am in the market for a Prius II. I have some questions. Could you call me if I posted my phone number?

    Thanks,
    Al
  • Do NOT post your phone number...

  • Hey Al,
    As the host indicated your # may be a bad idea may I suggest sending me a message directly. I am not familiar with this forum by any means but I am hoping the host must have some recommendations?? Let me know what I can answer and I will be happy to help.

  • Hi Walt,

    I was wondering if you might be able to give me some information on the Prius lease special that is currently advertised on the 2010 Prius. Is it better to take advantage of this deal or wait on the 2011 since the residual will be higher? Is it on all Trim packages? I would probably want the V trim package but not any options since Toyota doesn't residualize them. I assume the sweet spot is 36 months. Can I get the figures on 12K and 15K?

    Thanks Walt! Will buy as soon as I hear from you.
  • Sam,

    What was the final selling price on the car? What was the money factor? It would seem that you got the car below invoice to get at $208. Thanks,

    Al
  • Hey Al,
    The selling price for the vehicle was 21,550.00, money factor I do not know but if you know where I can find that on the paperwork. I will be happy to let you know. This deal was negotiated by dealing with getting the price of the car down as much as possible and letting the dealer see how close they could get to the OTD (out the door) price that I had that was best. All the negotiations took place via phone and email. The dealer I leased the car from was actually about $1,500.00 more then the best price I was given OTD so I asked them for there best deal via Lease since they couldn't beat the other dealers sale price. Then I took that deal to my local store and wasted 3 hours of my life trying to get them to the same point as Town & country (why I wasted this amount of time I dont know) but with a little bargaining I got them 10 bucks lower then town and country and then I emailed Town and Country to see if they could beat it and they did by another 10 bucks.. Thats how I got to where we ended up. Alot of research and emails but I just told them I am buying a car today so give me your best price or I will buy from the guy who is going to beat your price.

    Town and Country was a pleasure to work with and I will continue to work with them on my future purchases because of it. They really did not play any games they just gave me there best price and were willing to negotiate because they wanted to sell cars not waste time going back and forth. Let me know what else I can answer, thanks!!

    Thanks,
    Sam
  • Sam,

    Sounds good..I'll let you know how it goes.....You've been a big help.

    Thanks,
    Al
  • Sam,

    Close to getting the deal closed. You say you put down $500 which included the 1st months payment, But how did you pay for tax, tag, doc fees? Did you pay those in addition to the $500 or were these fees (approximately $1300) financed in to the lease over the 39 months? Thanks again for your help.
    Al
  • Tax is always paid in the lease atleast in nc. Other fees I don't know where they went or what, I just paid 500 down and 208 went towards first month payment what they did with the remaining 292 is a little mystery.. the selling price is 21550 and down payment 500.. hope that helped but I don't know..

    Thanks,
    Sam
  • I got a quotation for a Prius II here in Michigan. It is $0 due at signing deal. Let me know what you guys think.

    Here is the breakdown of the $269 Promo:

    MSRP $23,760.00
    Sale Price $22,745.00
    Manufacture incentivised Money Factor .00020
    Current Residual Value $14,592.00
    Total Monthly Payment including Tax, License Plate Transfer and $0 Due at Signing = $285.14 per month for a 36 Month 36,000 Mile Lease.
  • SO that translates to over 10K for 36 months? Too expensive if for standard package of Prius II, you can even get III with similar price ....
  • @winginsky: so what do you suggest my negotiation be. Would I ask that the Selling price come down to 22,000 even?

    I don't really need at III. I just want the best deal on a II.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    So If I understand correctly you financed your 1st payment, tax, tag, doc fees, etc in to the monthly payment. If my calculations are correct your lease payment should be approximately $236/month. The difference in payment is $49 which brings you to $285. Take 49 x 36 months and this equals $1764 which must be the amount you are financing to not put any money down. You should approach this deal like you are paying 1764 down and paying $236/month. I feel you can do better. If you can negotiate the car down to $22K you can bring down the payment another $21/month.
  • Sam,
    I got the Prius II. Pearl White with Tan interior. I was not worthy of your deal but I got pretty close. You saved me a lot of money.

    Thanks.
    Al
  • Al, can you provide some details on what you paid and where you got the deal (California or outside)? I'm looking for a similar deal on a Prius II. Thanks!
  • Congrats Al!

    I am glad to hear you saved a lot.
  • Hi. I'm looking to lease a 2010 Prius for 3 years (wanna start the lease in the next week)... I'm looking to get the black with the sunroof, nav (gps) and black leather seats. I test drove one the other day and talked to them a bit-- I wanted to find out what I should be paying by doing my research first. My credit is great. I'm located in Los Angeles. Does anyone have an idea of what I should be paying a month, all together? I'd like to drive off the lot with zero down... but would be willing to pay the first month (and maybe 200 dollars more) at day of pickup, etc.
    Anyone have any idea what's the best deal I should be able to get (per month) for:
    -One with everything I said
    OR
    -One with everything I said, minus the leather seats (if that's possible)... If not, just the one with the specs I mentioned above.

    Thanks in advance for you advice.
  • Leased a Prius III in November in Los Angeles. Nothing special except for the mats. 3yr/15k with tax is $243/month. I pitched-in $2k for the drive off (covers fees + some cap cost reduction). If I remember correctly, the cap cost was $21075 prior to the reduction.

    Good deal?

    Excellent deal. I got a Prius II for essentially the same deal. Good work.
  • The best deal I have been able to get is 3yr 36,000 for a Prius II is $266/month with only first month payment at signing. The $266 includes all taxes (Va) and fees. What does everyone think? I see some better deals out there in the past but as the selection dwindles, I am motivated to move forward. Thanks.
