  • Just purchased the same vehicle (2006 LE package #2 and carpet mats) in metro Atlanta for $24,370 plus tax and $21 title. The $24,370 includes dealer doc fee.

    Was also looking at Odyssey LX -- the Sienne LE was the same price and a much nicer vehicle imho.
  • Can you tell us the dealers name and address-email etc?
    Congrats on a great deal.
  • We purchased today.

    Includes: Limited Option Package #2 (DVD, navigation, etc), Rear Spoiler, Preferred Premium Accessory Package (Includes Cargo Net, F&R Floor Mats, Cargo Mat, Door Sill Protectors, First Aid Kit & Emergency Assistance Kit), and Alloy Wheel Locks.

    Paid $35,940 plus fees of $195 and $65 and tax of $1225 for a total of $37425.

    I am happy with the deal and hope it was a good one - it took a lot of haggling on my part. any opinions??

    I bought mine in Birmingham, AL at Serra Toyota. I got a slightly better price at Cherokee County Toyota in Atlanta area. Also got a good price at Milton Martin Toyota in Atlanta area.
  • Excellent deal!
    How many miles on the car?
    In what state/city?
  • Purchased my Sienna at stated price above from Cobb County Toyota in Kennesaw, GA. Worked everything out through internet department by e-mail. All I had to do was test drive the car and full out the paperwork. They had about 8-10 LE's w/package #2 to choose from at this price.
  • Is doc fee included in this? If so that works out to an 8% sales tax -- is that correct for you?

    If so, the price pre-tax is about $950 less than what I paid for Pack 2, which just adds the drivers side power seat (which is nice to have).

    But, your price for option package 1 seems real good if the numbers are correct above.
  • Hayward Toyota is advertising 4000 off MSRP on all 06 Sienna LEs this weekend. Sound like this is a great deal!

    I was offered to buy at the dealer's "invoice price" of $38,185 on an MSRP of $42,225 for a 2006 Sienna XLE Limited AWD with the HO package which is the Navigation and Rear Entertainment System. Another dealer said $500 over invoice and another said somewhere in between.

    Two separate dealers gave me this as the invoice for a fully loaded Sienna yet the Edmunds site shows it as a $37,409 invoice including the $565 destination charge.

    The dealers north of Boston MA all charge about $200 for doc fees and the RMV charges $65 to xfer plates.

    Does anyone have a 06 XLE Limited w/HO price comparison to share?

    Does anyone have any experiences at IRA Toyota in Danvers, Boch Toyota in Norwood, or any of the other Boston area dealers?

    Edmunds' invoice pricing does not (indeed, cannot) include Toyota's TDA fee (Toyota Dealer Advertising) which varies by region. That's why you're seeing a discrepancy in the numbers.

    For a good comparision, check the websites of the big Toyota stores in the DC area (Darcars, Fitzgerald) as they seem to have the best prices in the country. Again, though, the TDA numbers might be different from Boston.
  • purchased the last week of Nov.

    with 33 miles on the car.
    Dealer quote : $23826
    End of Month rebate: -$500
    Recent college graduate: -$700
    Lic & Reg fee: $262
    Doc fee: $100
    Sale Tax: $1267
    + 6 year 7,5000 mile bumper to bumper at $759
    Drive off price: $25014

    We bought in a great hurry and didn’t do much homework. But the posts on this board helped a lot. Thank you.

  • We just looked at a 2006 XLE Limited AWD w/ the HO package (DVD and Navigation. This vehicle is a dealer demo with almost 4,000 miles. It has a crack in the windshield and is somewhat dirty inside. How much should we expect the dealer to drop below invoice and is it unreasonable to demand a replacement windshield? Also, they've included the Toyota protection package for $699. This is basically dealer profit (IMO). Any views?
  • cccompsoncccompson Posts: 2,388
    My two cents is that demos are not worth their relatively small savings. It is unlikely they will discount it much (say $1000 under invoice) and for that you are getting a used vehicle that likely has been flogged. For very little more, you can get a new one and break it in properly.

    I would be very surprised that they would even sell it with a cracked windshield.
  • Just today in NC bought a 2006 LE 7 pass. w/ pkg 2 & fl. mats. Price paid before TTL was aprx $24,307. This price includes dest. and doc. fee. (They had listed doc. fee as $399). When I went in to talk price, I told them I'd buy it today if they sold it for $25,100 (out the door price including TTL). Did not confuse the issue with talk of trade-in or financing. Their initial price was around $28,200. After aprox. 30 minutes of trying to talk me up they finally agreed to $25,100, out the door.
  • Fitzmall , MD Its new I do not know the miles
    Thanks :)
  • Could someone post a sample email request to a dealer for a quote?

    I am interested in the OTD price price for a 2006 XLE, but would like to know their invoice price, TDA (not sure if already included), Toyoguard fee (which is required in the Southeast), doc. fee and taxes. Also would like to know what colors they have available.

    Any help with wording (feel free to suggest additional info I should ask for) greatly appreciated!

    Also, any wording how to follow up with negotiating, once a few quotes come in would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    Some websites only allow you to initially request a quote and there is no allowance for posing questions. In such cases you'll do so after you get a reply.

    The points I try to make are:

    A) I am ready to buy;

    B) What is their BEST price for a specified vehicle, including any dealer document or processing fee; and

    C) If I'm requesting a quote about a specific in-stock vehicle, I ask whether it is new or a demo and mileage on it.

    The fact of the matter is that in any given market TDA is the same from store to store as well as certain "mandatory options," such as Toyoguard in the SE. Taxes are also a given so I don't much care to get into any of that stuff because it makes absolutely no difference.

    I generally don't send inquiries unless a dealer has their inventory listed on their website. That way I can make a request about a known vehicle and avoid requesting a price for a particular color. Bear in mind that dealers know that some customers will pay more for a preferred color and some will use that knowledge to their advantage. It's far better to get a price and only then discuss color by having the dealer offer a number of colors from which you can pick. The same goes for options or packages - it's better to have some flexibility.

    Once you get a number of quotes you'll have any idea as to who you might do business with. You can then, if necessary, play them off against each other.
  • Very good job ... you beat me by $64.50 :P

    Just goes to show that the dealers want to move their inventory. People just need to shop around among dealers to get a satisfactory price. Mine wound up being from the dealer closest to my house.
