    Located in the NW, and i am also using USAA car buying service. Not sure but costco may get fleet pricing as well. I am ready to confirm the purchase, just read some posts on hybrid braking issues so a slight doubt popped in my head.

    Anyway figure its a good double whammy with invoice or close to it and 0%. If i dont pull the trigger now probablly never will.

    most of the country has better incentives than california. we get gouge with alot of things. you are right about getting the double whammy, if we only have 0% for 60 months with hybrids out here in the west, i'd put the trigger. thanks.

    I recently purchased a 2010 Highlander with the '2' year maintenance incentative. I was told that this includes road side maintenance and towing, but I never received an ID card to use in the event roadside assistance is needed. Can anyone tell me if Toyota intends to send this out ??
  • Bought for 31K+TTL+0%.
    Can someone who bought recently describe me how the 2 year incentive works. I didn't get enough details as it was very late yesterday. I am qualified for it as I own 4runner.

    2010 Toyota Highlander 4X2 (FWD)
    Package #8
    Rear Seat DVD entertainment system
    Color Keyed Rear Spoiler
    V6 towing prep package
    = $35,650
    MSRP - $39,620

    Is this lowest? or is there better out there? Comments please.

    that is pretty good since it includes the rear seat dvd. i went to carmax.com and typed in highlander and searched nationwide and they have brand new ones with zero miles with that configuration minus rear seat dvd for 34,500, so factoring in the 1,100 dollars for dvd entertainment, you have a good deal if you ask me.

    I'm going to be buying either a 4x2 or 4x4 limited 2010 silver w/ ash interior at end of March in Texas w/ pkg8, rear spoiler, tow prep, and carpet mats, want to pay 34-35.5k depending on 4x2 or 4x4.

    dlp :)

    Closed tonight on the deal $43,750 Highlander Hybrid Limited Pearl white. 0% 60 months including 2 year free maintnance. Still thinking about the alarm and the 8 year warranty. I was quoted $500 for the alarm and $1700 for the 8 year warranty right now leaning to no. Forgot to get the auto dimming rear view, hopefully can add that by a call tmw, the truck is not yet here.

    Bought a 2010 4x4 SE last night.
    Silver exterior with black leather interior.
    MSRP: 35,234
    Paid: $31,200 + TTL

    Had been looking for an 08/09 used Highlander for months (liked the newer body style and particularly the interior style much better than the older model) and could not find right features/price. When the 0% hit, moved pretty quickly to the new 2010s.

    For those still out looking, good luck. No groundbreaking advice here, but once you settle on the model you want and get a quote from a dealer, make a few phone calls to other dealers around town and ask if they can beat the price. It did not take much time and you can get a good idea where the dealers are willing to go on price. Saved me almost $1,000.

    Who was your sale person? I'm in the kansas city area as well and are looking to buy a SE AWD.

    Thanks

    I put down a deposit on a 2010 Highlander, Base, V6 with PE (power seat) and QB (roof rails, rear a/c etc); base price :$27,000; drive out ~$29,000.

    Do you guys think this is a fair price? I was somewhat surprised that the dealers were unwilling to negotiate much, even with Toyota's rep taking a beating everyday. Any thoughts?

    Looks like MSRP 29415, INVOICE 26521, so you paid approx 480 over invoice.

    If you went with the 0% for 60 months financing then you got a good deal. If you paid cash, then not a good deal. 29k would produce $3500-4500 in interest at 2.5% to 3.0% interest in a 5 year FDIC insured CD.

    I have an offer of 34,000 without the DVD RES. Where are you located?

    We bought a Highlander Limited 2010 recently. It didn't have the built in GPS. The price we paid was $34k including a rebate of $750. It had all the features of Limited version along with an extra value package worth $2500.

    I would like to know whether the price was right. We bought this at invoice price.
  • That is a great offer with the navigation system for a 2010 AWD Limited Highlander. where are you located.

    I don't think he was referring to the AWD version but instead the FWD. Limited AWD w/Nav (EVP8) is right around $35K. FWD version is $1K less. Unless a local dealership is offering some cash incentives that Toyota isn't, there's no way they would pay you $1K to purchase a Limited AWD w/Nav. Sales might be down but it's not that bad.
  • Can't seem to PM here in this forum. Any other way of contacting you?

    Is this a cash buy or 0% for (how many) months?
  • You can get this for 31K+0%.
    I got this last weekend. I got this with carpet mats included.
  • wooohaaawooohaaa Posts: 30
    Correct. It is a 2wd limited nav evp8 for 33843. The awd is 36k with nav evp8 but also includes the Over priced xm radio for 500. Dealer will add RES for 1200 to any limited having evp8.

    All of these have rear spoiler and mats.

    Hope this helps. Best deals I've found are Maryland and Virginia areas.

    Where did you buy this from. I am in MO and got the best quote of 30900 for 2WD SE.
  • 6sam66sam6 Posts: 8
    I am in STL area, how is your purchase going?
  • 6sam66sam6 Posts: 8
    Hi,

    If you respond with the sales person name or send email to happysam66gmailcom, that would be great.

    After months of reading and 2 weeks of negotiations, we finally picked up a Highlander with the following options.

    2010 Highlander Limited AWD
    Blizzard Pearl/Beige
    Extra Value Package #8 (w/Nav)
    Sport-Styled Rear Spoiler
    V6 Towing Prep Package
    Cross Bars
    Carpet/Cargo Mat
    MSRP: $40,014
    Price Paid: $35,630 + TTL
    0% APR for 60 months

    Car was purchased in MD. I spoke to countless dealerships around the MD/VA/DC area. Most wanted $36.2K-$37.9K for the same exact vehicle. Blizzard Pearl Limited with EVP8 are in high demand in this area so not many wanted to negotiate on price. The ones that were on the lot were either spoken for or sold within a week. I lucked out and contacted a dealership with a similar car on hand just with a different interior. I threw out $35.5K and they accepted within a 10 min phone conversation. Since they didn't have the beige interior, they did a dealership trade in PA and the car had one additional option so it bumped the price up a tad. I was a bit surprise their willingness since this was basically a no profit sales for them which had me nervous of a bait and switch. Turns out everything worked out smoothly and we got the exact vehicle we were looking for down to the VIN number. This Highlander has a JT VIN which was a plus since it wasn't affected by the recall.

    Thanks to all the other people who shared their purchases. This allowed us to get a better idea of what's possible in terms of pricing so hopefully our experience will help someone else. :)

    looks like a solid deal is that below invoice? We went with Blizard Pearl with the Ash interior for our Highlander Hybrid Limited. Picking it up in a week or so.
  • 6sam66sam6 Posts: 8
    hi justchill,

    Can you please respond asap. I contacted this dealer and they quoted 31399 for FWD not AWD. Can you please email me happysam66atgmail.com

    Thanks
  • espressooespressoo Posts: 20
    I priced it out using Edmunds and that's right about invoice but Carpet/Cargo Mats weren't listed on Edmunds. On the sticker, it's an additional $275 (more likely $100) that I guess we got for free.

    We went with beige since the interior for the non-Hybrid Limited comes with darker wood trim. Ash with the darker trim looks out of place. I do like the Hybrid lighter trim but that's not an option.
