    I agree. Not really much of a plus to get folks to buy the Sienna. Toyota needs to get serious and put a 100,000 mile warranty on their vehicles. Lot of lost confidence among consumers, this longer warranty would help some buyers.

    Figures, right before the 30,000 service, the first biggie.
  • I bought a 2011 Sienna XLE 8 passenger FWD on 3/31 in Brandon FL:

    Purchase Price 29969
    Floor Mats 399
    Less Trade - 5700 (2002 Honda Odyssey XE)
    Dealer Fee 599
    Tax 1569
    misc xfr tag etc.
    OTD 27050

    I used zag.com American Express to find the lowest price in our area. I also took my trade to CarMax and received a $6,000 offer so I knew what I wanted for a trade and could decide if I wanted to trade or bring cash.

    I also received 3.85% financing from Fifth Third Bank for 60 months.

    I love my new Sienna! :D
  • I used zag.com to find lowest price in my area and it lists 3 dealers and their lowest prices. It emails their internet sales dept. with the price guaranteed for their dealership. You can also see if other dealers will match the price...some say they will match any written offer. Usually the car you want has to be on their lot, but my dealer found what I wanted at a sister dealership and had it exchanged and driven to my dealer. It worked great for me.

    This is on the limited, I think I saw lower models at $500 above invoice. Does anyone know if the rear sunroof on the limited, has the interior cover that is perforated or is it solid so no light can get in when you cover the window?
  • It's solid...no perforations.

    Paysensmom, you could do much better. On an XLE with Premium, MSRP of $39,524.00 I was offered $35,500.00 without much work on my part here in PA.

    I have decided to purchase the Sienna in XLE trim. I don't want the DVD system or Navi (though I like the looks of the latter). The dealers in my area, in my opinion, seem inflexible when it comes to pricing. A friend advised to check out CarMax in Kenosha, WI since they're an authorized seller of new Toyotas. I did, and discovered exactly what I want for a price of $30,799 (I might be off a few dollars). My wife needs a new car at this time as well, so we would be buying two cars and paying in cash. I'm not asking for 50% off and I don't have an issue with a great sales rep making a fair commission for his or her efforts, but given there's no financing to contend with and a cashier's check readily available, do we have room to negotiate on price despite the 'no haggle' dollar amount? It's been awhile since we've purchased cars, as we drive them until they're ready to croak. Any advice, pro or con?

    Has anyone had any experience working with a Toyota dealership to "order" a vehicle like you want it?

    Here is the problem I experienced. My current lease on my automobile is up in early May. So, to be prepared for the hand-over of that vehicle, I began doing research on the 2010 Ody and 2011 Siennas that would be my two options of choice come May.

    In late February, we decided a 2011 Sienna XLE would be the vehicle. We went into the local Toyota Dealership to make inquiries, check inventory, etc. and were told a vehicle was already in line "to be built" matching the XLE packaging we wanted (XLE 8 pass FWD, no other options). Surprisingly (or not), here in Anchorage, Alaska not many Siennas show up without the AWD option. We were told that since the vehicle hadn't yet been built, we could still make any color changes we wanted. The color it was originally coming in was the Predawn Gray Mica with Lt. Gray interior. We had test-driven an LE AWD with cloth light gray interior and felt it was too light of a color for kids, and looking at the light gray leather that would come with the XLE, seemed to be even lighter. We were pretty open to 3 or 4 different exterior colors, but definately only wanted the Beige interior.

    We sat down with the salesman and asked that the interior color be changed to the Beige and the exterior to change to Blizzard Pearl (a $220 color option supposedly only available as a "Limited" model only option). We waited about 4 weeks for it to be built and shipped to Alaska, being told it would arrive in mid-April (next week). 2 weeks ago I walked into the dealership to pin-point the delivery date. The salesman came back to tell me that it was on its way and should be there by the middle of April. However in looking over the paperwork, they changed the exterior as requested, but the interior had NOT been changed, and was on it's way with Light Gray.

    I don't have the luxury of driving across town to another Toyota dealership (next nearest is 370 miles way in Fairbanks, which is a dealership part of the same Kendall Toyota Group). The van will be here in the next few days, and we don't have time to "order" another vehicle and have it arrive before our early May. The salesman keeps blaming the Toyota factory for never listening to them. The strange thing is they were able/willing to change the exterior color of an XLE to a color that isn't even offered on the XLE, but they wouldn't make the change to the interior per a customer's request? Is this poor follow up with the factory on the part of a Sales Manager? Does the factory really do stuff like this and deliver vehicles to the dealership regardless? In talking to the salesmen, the factory never listens to the dealership, leaving us to either take delivery of a vehicle we now don't want, or go down the road to the Honda dealership and reconsider the 2010 Odyssey......

    The salesman has claimed he has looked through inventory at other dealerships in the Pacific NW to see if he can locate the vehicle we actually want without any success. According to him, there seems to be no XLE inventory packaged the way we want with Beige interiors. Is anyone else running into any similar problems? Would love to hear anyone else's experience in either ordering or locating a 2011 Sienna XLE 8 pass FWD, with no extra options, beige interior and either Predawn Gray, Blizzard Pearl, Super White or South Pacific Pearl?

    Sadly, when talking to the salesman he makes it sound like a customer request that they send into the factory is like rocket science. Is it really? I understand that this could be the attitude of the local dealership and sales staff as they nearly have a monopoly on the Toyota market here in Alaska. But maybe there is a chance that the factory doesn't really care about what the customomers want? The whole experience is starting to leave a bad taste in my mouth, with my first-ever Toyota buying experience.

    Hi Friends,

    I'm looking for some help from the experts here on this forum.
    we are 3 friends looking seriously to buy 3 2011 Toyota Sienna LE model in Seattle, Wa. I'm wondering if there is a volume discount available on Toyota's and any wholesale delear available in US who can offer good price for 3 vehicles?
    Also what is good price on 2011 LE AWD?

    Thanks in advance for your response!!
  • All you guys going for the PAX run flat tires on Sienna 2011 - are you getting rid of the runflat tires or are you going to keep it? How does that play into the negotiation? Should I end up paying the dealer for removing the tires prior to purchase and installing a new set or would/could the dealer do this replacement for free?

    Just bought 2011 Sienna XLE AWD with Premium Package at the invoice price, $37,888 (MSRP = $41.540) at Capital Toyota in San Jose, CA. They also gave me Auto Appearance Protection (Paint & Leather protection) for 5 years for FREE.

    Question: XLE/Limited has Tow Prep Option as Standard. Could someone tell me what this consist of? My saleman couldn't tell me much about this

    I can understand your frustrations. When we were looking to buy a new Sienna, salesman would not consider getting us "Blizzard Pearl" as that was now only available on the Limited vans. Also, both interior colors were a turn off, as only Bisque (reminds me of baby poo) and Light Grey. We wanted a darker interior color. Honda was not much better on color, as the only interior color available with their White is Ivory (another poo reminder).

    Both Toyota and Honda seem to have a take it or leave it attitude about what they build.

    If you remove the PAX tires, what are you going to use for a spare?

    The van was designed and engineered to use the PAX tires. Dealer may resist changing a Toyota design. Once you buy the van you can do what you want in way of tires. Changing a Toyota manufactured design gives Toyota "wiggle room" on some warranty repairs.
  • It'll depend on what market you're in but the dealer where I bought my Sienna was selling all trims at around 10% off MSRP which seems to be what most folks are getting on this board. So with an MSRP of $44,626, you should be looking at around $40,200. Then again, I took my deal to other local dealers and they wouldn't match so you may have to bargain hard depending on your market and how many dealers are in your area.

    I'd say no, in fact what would be the point of no-haggle if you could then haggle?

    It's fair because everyone pays the same price on that day.

    Same. I just left the #1 Toyota Dealer in Fairfax with an XLE premium pack V6 FWD. MSRP was $39606, out the door $35,510. They originally wanted $36,313 but matched Fitz's internet price. Sweet deal.
