  • Additional Question: Has anyone seen the X-SP Leather Faced Seats which is included in the XSP Package Option? I can't find pictures or a detailed description and am wondering if these seats are all leather or what? I am hoping to visit a dealership this weekend to see if I can view them.

  • The average deal on a 30k ish 4runner is 5000-6000 off MSRP, so you have an average deal.

  • Hello, everyone. I need everyone's feeling on the following price.
    I registered with CarsDirect.com, requested to get the price on Toyota 4Runner 2007 4x4 auto, Sports Edition, the website notes $28,207(??), rep calls me and tells me they have one available for $29,805, with taxes, documentation fees and registration fees it would come up to $32,500. Do you think this is a good price, should I go with it or try to play negotioation games with dealers and hope to get a better price.... Let me know, my email is i30RLS@aol.com. thank you.
  • If you're considering getting a 2007 4-Runner (no trade in), your target price should be invoice less any current Toyota incentives. I'm on my 3rd 4-runner, and I've done ALOT better selling on my own, than trading in (one less point to negotiate). Know your market. In Northern NJ, there are Toyota dealers a plenty, so they want to move whatever 07s they have in stock. Prestige Toyota lists the invoice on their website. I did everything over the phone: invoice - rebate + 7% NJ tax + $7 tire tax + $149 doc fee + 4 year registration ($351). No other costs (window etching is a scam: you can do it yourself for $15 via internet). Also, if you have excellent credit, you should opt for cash back, and negotiate the TMC financing. I was given a ridiculous finance rate. Then I got my own financing, and all of a sudden the TMC rate came down. There was still a few $100 difference (over the life of the loan), so they threw in a dealer accessory to make up the difference (I guess they get "points" if you finance through TMC). I don't get into "holdbacks". Although car dealers created this market place where consumers can negotiate final cost (try doing that with an expensive item from Niemman Marcus), they should be entitled to make some money, so I don't get into the holdbacks (which, from what I've read, are in the 2-4% range).
  • In Sacramento CA I paid $100.00 below invoice before incentives, for a 2007 4-Runner Sport 4x4. Maita Toyota was very prompt to answer my emails so they won my business. One of the dealers in the area tried to sell me a 2007 4-Runner at MSRP. I laughed and explained I wasn't paying MSRP for any vehicle. He said Good Luck and hung up the phone.

    I'm in Sacramento too. Which one was the bad dealer?
  • I have 500 miles on my new 4-Runner Sport w/V-6, hitch and a couple other factory installed options. I'm pretty pleased. I picked it up the week before the Labor Day weekend. $300 over invoice and $2000 cash back from Toyota. Total price was about $30,365 out the door or $5,149 below sticker. No trade.
  • Hey, everyone. Thanks for your responses. Anyone had any positive experience in New York - Westchester or upper westchester area?
  • I am planning to buy an SR5 4x2 in San Antonio/Austin/Dallas/Houston area. Anyone recently bought one? What should I aim?
    Thnx
  • hey, mtpulsar

    email me at i30RLs@aol.com

    I have couple of questions to ask you regards to Prestige dealership experience.

    One of the questions is after they provided you with the invoice, was it different from what they show on their website?

    Did you negotitate?

    Email me.
  • Hey, all. After a month of research finally purchased my 4Runner Sports with extra options it comes. Haggled the salesperson at Rockland Toyota, New York to $30,499, rebate was not included because I took special 1.9% financing for 48months. Took the car the same day. Negotiation process was brutal, we spent 4 hours from the time we walked in to the time we drove out. Before going to Rockland Toyota, we went to Ramsey's Prestige Toyota in New Jersey, they had the car we wanted, the salesperson gave us the price they gave me over email and they wouldn't budge on the price. And in the end when we were about to leave, he told me to stop, and I am thinking he will give me a better price, instead comes over and tells me to buy the car for lower price at the DisneyWorld. They were very unprofessional, so me and my wife just walked away. Anyways, I am happy with price that we got from Rockland Toyota, since it seems to be average value for the car.
    I used carbuyingtips.com to do all my research and used their scenario excel spreadsheets to double check numbers, and everything worked fine. So if you are looking for 4Runner, go to Rockland Toyota and talk to the salesperson Marc L. he had a good attitude and was willing to negotiate with us and the manager. Oh, and finance manager wasn't trying to sell us anything additional, so the paper work Any questions, let me know.
  • In the future, drive over the bridge and go to Toyota City in Mamaroneck. Simple negotiation for a reasonable price we could live with. Also the service department is real good. Would definitely go back.

    This must be a regional thing. Are you in the Gulf states region or Southeast Toyota region?

    "And in the end when we were about to leave, he told me to stop, and I am thinking he will give me a better price, instead comes over and tells me to buy the car for lower price at the DisneyWorld."

    Really? He said that to you? I would have called the General Manager and reported him.

  • Hey, Ponytrekker...

    It's funny you mentioned Toyota in Mamaroneck.. we went there 2 weeks before we went to Rockland Toyota. Mamaroneck toyota had a pleasant salesperson, he seemed respectful, went on a test drive with us, but they didn't have the car we wanted in stock. They had SR5 which we didn't want. And they offerred to get it from another dealer or location, I said no, because doing so would be raising price on us. So we just saig goodbye. I don't regret my purchase from Rockland Toyota. I played my cards right and I got what I wanted.
  • Hey, mackabee

    I went to that dealership because of your post. Well, anyways, wife didn't mind driving up there once she saw Ikea nearby.
    After we left there, they're telemarketing dept rep called us and asked us why we left, so we explained the whole experience, they wanted us to come back, but we didn't do it because the price was still not what we were hoping.

    This is what I learned from visiting all the toyta dealerships, they all say they sold 400-500 cars during the last month, they all say they are number one when it comes to awards, and they all say they provide #1 service. After a while it was hard for me to believe what all of them were saying was actually true.
  • Hi i30rls,

    I have been looking for an SR5 and I would like to know your target price if you do not mind.

    Thanks
  • Hey, welldone
    The price that I paid for my car SportEd 4Runner was very close to SmartTargetPrice from cars.com, I was very surprised to that. Edmund's price was a bit off, lower than dealers would actually sell for.
    According to cars.com, smart target price for SR5 2007 4Runner is $26,109, so haggling the dealer to $26,500 would be appropriate. But you should hurry up, because this is the time to do it (great financing rates or 2000 cash back). Go to carbuyingtips.com and download their free excel spreadsheets for your carbuying, it helps tremendously. It also helps to email dealers asking if they have SR5 in stock, what color and so on. I think they are more willing to negotiate with you if they have a car in their lot.
    Also, sign up with carsdirect.com, they give you the price on the spot, however, that spot price may differ from the actual price when their rep calls you. Either way, you'll get some idea what to ask for.
    Use tips from carbuyingtips.com, as I wrote earlier, that's what helped me to play the game with them, some dealears would be willing to negotiate and some would tell you to go to DisneyWolrd and buy it from Mickey Mouse (from my experience), so you may have to go thru couple of them. But email would be appropriate start, email them and ask them the price that they would be willing to sell, and then once you go there show them emails and start negotiating from the prices they emailed you.
    hope that helps
