  • What's the source on the 0% on March 2nd? I can't even find rumors on the web
  • I think that's pretty competitive. $2K off an XLE, and $3-4K off a Limited seem to be par. I'm sure you might be able to squeeze a few hundred more, but it certainly seems reasonable to me.

    I'd much rather have a 100,000 mile warranty vs. the 0% financing. I'm not as confident of Toyota quality as I was a year or so ago.

    The built-in stuff is expensive.

    You could get them both iTouches for less.

    Or a couple of Nintentdo DS portable gaming systems, plus games.

    Actually you could buy 2 of each and still come out ahead.

    Or go aftermarket with the DVD player like I did.

    The massive widescreen is sorta nice, though.
  • Had a GREAT experience at Ardmore Toyota in PA. It's the third car we've gotten from them, and they've definitely earned our loyalty. Each time I've shopped around at other dealerships but find myself actually making the purchase at Ardmore. Just good people.

    I liked the DVD system, but couldn't pull the trigger for $2400. For that money I can get the kids 10 iPods and they can just toss them over their shoulder when they're done.

    Seriously, if I need an entertainment package, I'll just go aftermarket DVD, but I really don't think I need it since the kids have iPhones, and we can always bring a portable DVD player in the car for long trips.

    What I really wanted was the Limited, but without the entertainment. But I didn't seem to be able to get that. In this area, all the Limiteds are with the Premium package, not just nav. You can't even select the non-entertainment nav package on the website. So I guess I could have ordered it and waited (and hoped that the order would actually go through), but I didn't want dual moonroofs THAT badly. Besides, now that the XLE AWD has the lounge seating and the Limited DOESN'T seem to have the power stow 3rd row, it came down to only a few features between the XLE AWD and the Limited, and that wasn't worth the $3100 extra.

    I haven't picked up the car yet (it's due for a 2/28 delivery) but if this 0% is true, I hope I can take advantage of it. I have the cash, but hey, I'll just put the cash in something mildly interest bearing and make a few bucks. Why not?
  • I hear sales in general have plummeted for Toyota due to issues. They have to put out attractive incentives/lease programs to get sales back in line. Depending on Sienna sales this may or may not be included. You have to remember that this is an 2011 model release early to get a jump start on Honda. Sales expectations for Sienna will be very aggressive. If thee targets are not met, the incentives will be coming. Timing was not good for a new model release that's for sure.

    Toyota came out with Sienna earlier as Honda Odyssey new model is slated to arrive this summer ( from other posts). With ongoing acceleration problem with Toyota Cars in general , a convincing assurance & I guess heavy discount must be given to attract buyers like me.

    Although after seeing todays testimony doesnot convince me that Toyota knows where the issue really is. From what I understand Break override doesnot solve acceleration problem.
  • Can you explain more about that "brake overide" does not correct the problem. After the hearings I am really having second thoughts, but the brake overide was more assuring. If it doesn't work though, I'm back where I started.

    The Sienna's sure aren't flying out of the dealer showrooms here in Illinois. Our dealership received three about 3 weeks ago and they still have the same three sitting there. When I went to testdrive it a couple days ago - it only had 12 miles on it...and one of them is in the showroom so I know that is not getting testdrove. So maybe I was the 1st or second to even test drive it.

    One minute I am so sure, because I did really like the car and my current sienna has 300k miles on it and is still going strong, and then I hear more from these hearings and I'm back to square one!
  • The thing that really surprised me was finding a 2010 Limited AWD that I was interested in... I contacted the dealer to get "the internet price", and all they did was knock it down from $41K to $40K!! The guy called me to let me know that I could get 0% financing for 36 months in lieu of the $1000 rebate. Given the fact that the 2010 MY is already dated, you can deal on the 2011s, and that Toyota's reputation is taking a major hit right now, I was shocked that they were not bending over backwards to get rid of any remaining 2010 Siennas... but alas, neither Toyota (in the way of any meaningful incentives) or the dealer (in the way of substantial discounts) seems to be very interested in making the sale.

    The only way I would buy a 2010 right now is to get a massive discount/rebate and 0% for 60 months. Otherwise, I will buy a 2011 later this year.
  • I would not be worried about the short term problems with Toyota turning into longer term problem. I think the new Sienna will be just as reliable (with exception of normal 1st year model issues) as your old one.

    I think purchasing one at right time is main issue. IMO Toyota and its dealer network get so arrogant that it may take some time for them to realize that Sienna is not going to sell without incentives right now and in near future. So the question is when and how long can you wait?

    Try other dealers. That wasn't a good quote at all. You'll find much better.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    300k miles? Wow, we should all be so lucky! :shades:
  • Yeah, the sales person asked me if I was going to trade it in...we said No Way! My husband is looking forward to driving it. We call it Travie and it's part of the family.

    At times I regret selling my 98 Forester ("Sandy"). The new owner has neglected it - I've seen it on the streets of DC, filthy. I wonder if it's been washed even once since I sold it. :cry:

    I am also in PA area some what 20 miles away from the dealership you have mentioned. Would you mind how much you paid for XLE7 pass AWD. I am also looking for exactly the same car.

    Thanks.
  • I would love to hear how aggressive other dealers have been on their lease deals - the showroom of dealer we went to in Bergen County NJ was very busy but I dont know how many people were buying or just kicking tires.
    After several iterations this is the lease deal we agreed to - can anyone comment on it?
    2011 XLE AWD w/DVD. 12k/yr, 36 mos. Taxes and fees paid up front, ~$3,600.00 out of pocket. Monthly payment 550.00. I know this to be 36,200 for the sales price, 21,000 residual, leased with TFS.
    Thank you.
  • Here is what I got from a dealer close to my house. The sales person was firm on these prices. What do you think?

    XLE, AWD : $34100
    XLE, AWD + Nav : $36600
    XLE, FWD: $31900
    XLE, FWD + NAV: $34600

  • Just got back from the dealer. After dancing around for a while, the "final" offer we got on a 2011 XLE with DVD (but not Nav) was $33,770 and 3.39% financing for 60 mo. Figured we'd shop this deal around to a couple other locations and see what they can do, but also wanted to see if this is in the ballpark of what others here are seeing. We're in the Philly burbs, fyi.

    Thanks!
  • I disagree with that statement. The staff is arrogant and pretend as if they sell 100 cars a day and also pretend as if they are busy. ARDMORE toyota is the most disguisting dealer I have ever seen in my life firstly the staff is very rude and they don't realize they need to sell vehicle and not interview people like the way do it for job. On an average their pricing is $1500 off competitors price.

    My experience with them is very bad and I would never recommend them to anyone.
    Their prices are way high and therefore they don't discuss any pricing over internet or phone they just call you at their dealership and try to rip you off with high price quote.
    If you ever visit them know what the competitors pricing otherwise you will feel cheated later that is my frank opinion
