2003-2008 Toyota Corolla Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • It's got cruise, CD Changer, hmm something else.. It was $13,995 After all the paperwork, extended warranty, Custom Plate, it came out to $17,030

    I went in looking at a Yaris, but this was only $1,500 more than a stripped down Yaris, and from what I hear will get about the same MPG. Too bad they stuck the Scion tranny on the Yaris instead of the Echo tranny. It really lowered the real world MPG of the Yaris.

    I was wondering if I got a good deal till I went to and saw that a used 05 had a retail price of more than I paid for my 06, not including my warranty...:) Got it at Spartan Toyota in Lansing, MI - Joe

    Nice deal ponde. I was wondering what price you started from? Dealers around me (southern NH) are claiming they can't go below $14,000 for a base automatic CE. $11,777 seems exceptional.

    What is a good deal for a base automatic CE?

    Just got the car a month ago - it was a great deal so I just wanna share it and help some people out

    Corolla CE with AT, no power locks or windows options available here in South Cal.

    Mats were provided with first free oil change

    price was $13100 + TT&L (L.A. county tax rate)

    OTD = $14,400

    would like to know if someone else in California has gotten a better deal ;)

    It is hard to bargin down the price. TOYOTA dealers are the most arrogant ones around. I watched newspaper in my area. I saw an ad at such price and I went down there and bought the car. Car prices at CA are normally lower than some other states. I paid $954 tax though. you don't pay tax at NH, do you? :)
    Pay attention to newspaper I would say. Whenever there is a deal, go and buy it.
  • Hello folks... This is my 1st post here...I'm all excited about the outlandish deals some of you guys have landed just like Ponde's(#1045)... Seems the dealers may post some ads like that once in a while in local newspapers...I'm wondering if any folks in Nashville area have ever seen anything alike in the newspapers and which papers...Tennessean maybe? Must be the paper version cause can't find anything on their website. :(

    Hi all. I need a cheap & reliable car to commute. I want to buy a basic automatic corolla 06 CE (power steering, power mirror, AM/FM/CD,
    A/C, floor mats, no power windows,
    no powder doors, no keyless entry)

    How much should I pay before tax? And how much should I pay for total OTD price?
    I live in South Florida.

    One dealer offered $14,954.77 (everything included) and another one offered $14,900.00

    Thank you

    Was wondering if anyone was waiting for the 07s to come out in hopes there would be a discount on the 06s? I think toyota offered $1500 cash back on the camerys. Maybe they will do something for the corollas?

    Like a few others I'm looking for a 06 corolla CE with just automatic, I'm quoted between $14,400- $14800 + TTL.

    Maybe I don't know how to haggled but dealers basically ignore me or come down about $50 bucks when I try to pit them against one another.
  • I just got a 06 Corolla LE with FE CK VV and CF options. The sticker on the window was $17.053 The dealership was selling them for $13,995 Over $3,000 off wasn't bad at all. It had $1,250 in rebates, but those went to the dealer at that price. I went to and book priced a used 05 LE at more than I paid out the door for my 06 model including an extended warranty. I can live with that. Got it at Spartan Toyota in Lansing, MI My first tank I got 32MPG in town. No highway driving yet during break in. Should get 34 after break in.

    I went in looking at the Yaris, but this was only $1,500 more than a stripped Yaris, and this had a CD changer, keyless entry, alarms, etc.. I couldn't turn it down. - Joe

    If you live in the SE zone for Toyota they add two charges to every toyota sold...

    SET Administration Fee - $414
    SET Destination Charge - $45

    What is this for?
    Why would anybody pay it?

  • I paid 15,100 with all taxes included for 06 Corolla CE Automatic transmission+power windows+power doors.

    This was at Austin,TX and bought in Jan06.

    You have room to negotiate for another $200 as my title document says the price paid is 14945(rest is document fee ).

    So stick to 14,900-15,000 OTD.

    Hi all. I am in Florida. Someone offered me a $14,000 OTD. I intend to go with the deal. Is that a reasonable decision?
  • maganmagan Posts: 18
    Is this OTD? Including destination charge?
  • maganmagan Posts: 18

    More questions: Did they offer you any special finance rate?

  • maganmagan Posts: 18
    What is it? Is it an extended warranty?

    I just found out that Toyota is giving a $500 rebate this month. :)

    Any idea what that rebate will increase to in the coming months before the debut of the '07 Corolla? I want to buy but waiting for the right time to get the best price and then pull the trigger.

    I live in the New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania Area. I am very interested in purchasing a Toyota Corolla "S". It must be the "S" model with a automatic transmission and have the following options:
    Anti-Lock Brakes
    Power Tilt/Slide Moonroof with inner mirror and driver and passenger side and curtain airbags
    The extra value package #1 which includes 15" Alloy Wheels w/P195/65P15 tires, Rear Spoiler, Power windows, Keyless entry and cruise control
    Carpet floor mats as well as the trunk mat
    The all weather guard package
    Last but not least something similiar to the Viper security system and not the cheap one that comes with the car.
    With the items listed above I am asking if anyone knows for sure what the lowest price I should pay for this car. No offense but I ask that only those people who know for sure what I should pay or have already purchased a car like this with these options please respond to my question. Thanks to all and safe driving.
