    The dealer is correct about NJ collecting for four years title/registration upfront...

    That doesn't have any bearing on the doc fee or window etching, though... Just add that into the selling price for the true cost...

    Anyone have word on when the 2011s will hit the floor? I read on some websites that the end of August. But in talking to a Salesman this week he said a "couple months".
  • We signed yesterday a deal for 2010 RAV4. The vehicle was 2010 RAV4 Ltd edition, 3.5L V6 4wheel drive, 5 speed automatic, EVP package, tow package, cargo and floor mats, exhaust tip valor. No navigation. The MSRP was $30,818 and invoice that they showed was $28764. We closed the deal for $28325 with only sales tax. I got the 2 yr maintenance plan, unlimited lifetime powertrain warranty, transferable if we decide to move/sale the vehicle. The dealer had some obscure post package of $488 that he was giving for free

    What you think about the deal?
  • Is this correct?
    so your MSRP: $30818 + $488 (optional stuff)
    Price you paid: $28325 + Tax

    Does your deal include $1000 Toyota rebate?

    sounds like it's a lot of money for a rav4. after tax or o-t-d price, is it around $30K or more?
  • NO. There was only $750 rebate. I took 1.9%APR financing instead. The cost does not inlude the sales tax yet.
  • yes after tax it comes to be 30K. And I did think I paid more. But from the suggested invoice price constructed on the edmnds I almost paid the same invoice price
  • I think you did good. You paid $2.5k less + $488 stuff. So almost $3k off without using the rebate. That is a good deal. I am having hard time getting $2.5k off my deal.
  • I am interested in the 2010 RAV4 LTD V6. Is paying invoice a fair deal for the RAV4 LTD? or should I aim for below invoice?

    Also, I am not sure if I should get the 2010 version because of the earlier RECALL fiasco. I am worried if the recall issue is going to cause the resell value to sink later. Any suggestions?
  • Has anyone tried to get the Remote Starter with RAV4 Limited (with Smart Key)? My dealer is telling me that it costs $600 to put Remote Starter in RAV4 Limited because it has smart key (Push button start inside the car). Is that true? That seems high, I thought Remote Starters were around $300?

    Any help would be really appreciated.
  • Personally I have been waiting for the 2011s after the many Toyota fiascos this last year.
    Tweaks are being made and I do like the idea of a Brake Override. All 2011s come standard with the Star Safety System which includes a combination of 5 accident avoidance features
  • We just signed the deal yesterday (Sep 11th, 2010)

    My zip code - 01752

    MSRP of the CAR - $29317
    Invoice price - 26019
    Out of the door price - (Inclusive of new plates, documentation, tax and other charges)
    was - 27600.

    I took the 500 rebate and did not go for the 2.9% financing. Also there was no trade-in.

    The package :
    Limited Edition, 4 Cyl, 4WD, QY package, Body side moldings, mud flaps, floor mats, rear cargo cover.
  • Wow, That is a good deal.

    What was your sales tax (how many %)?
    What is the price you paid before taxes, doc fee, plates?
  • Using a combination of internet dealers and phone calls, I was able to get a silver base RAV4 4 X 4 with Extra Value Package for $22,321.The MSRP was 24,303. I was able to secure 3.5% outside financing, so I was also able to take advantage of the $750 cash back. Plus the dealer doc fee, my Out the Door Price was $21,850.

    While I might have been able to get a better price if I had haggled longer, I was happy with the deal and didn't want to miss out on getting the color I wanted since the 2010 models are running low. I agree that internet pricing is the way to go with sites like TrueCar (I don't think Autobrag works anymore), the only time I had to set foot on the dealership was to test drive the vehicle.
  • I just got a '10 FWD base model for $880 below invoice (invoice= according to edmunds.com) in SoCal. The options are: base model extra value pkg (QV), upgraded stereo w/xm and 6 CD (DJ), and the 5 piece floor matts. I suggest checking out cars.overstock.com. USAA car buying service uses the same "engine" as cars.overstock.com. The sticker was $23.2k and I got it for $20.9k + TTL. I also received the $500 military rebate. I couldn't get the 2.9% financing since I got the military rebate but it was worth it. OTD price was $22.6k.

  • Where did you got the price of Out the Door Price was $21,850.
    I am also looking for Rav4 AWD at this price.
    Please let me know at rahul0876atgmail. Thanks
  • The invoice price I paid was $22321, plus dealer doc fee, minus the $750 rebate since I was able to get outside financing at a good rate. So your $22,650 isn't too far off, only a couple hundred more than what I paid, not counting the rebate. I would recommend contacting a couple dealers and let them know what your best offer is and see they can beat it, I saved a couple hundred dollars that way. My dealership was in Nebraska, but you can probably get a better deal if you take local stock from a local dealer if you're out of state.
  • funguy123, I just looked into the same for my 09 RAV 4. Was quoted $600 from Toyota dealer.
    There must be better prices out there for these push button starts.
  • Bought a 2010 RAV4 Ltd FWD 4cyl on 9/29 in Oklahoma City. Equipped with QZ (leather/nav), backup camera, special color, and a few PIO extras (molding, mudguards, mats, Blu Logic). MSRP of $29,520; invoice $26,843.

    I paid $27,400 minus $1,000 cash incentive = $26,400 out the door. That excludes any tax, title, license fees. Not a fantastic deal but the alternative was having an unhappy wife!

    Another dealer I was working with had about the same price. He told me the 2011 RAV4s are to arrive in port the first week of November.

    Has anyone seen a 2011 at the Dealers yet?
  • The 2011 are being delivered in some parts of the country. There are a lot in the New York area already. On cars.com you can search dealer inventory and see if dealers in your area have them. However, don't expect the dealers to be honest about it. I went to quite a few dealers in the New York City area and all but one dealer told me that the 2011's were weeks or months away when in fact were already on the way. One helpful salesperson told me the week her dealer was expecting their first delivery of 2011's and she was spot on. I was looking to lease the 2011 but unfortunately in September the money factor on the 2011 Rav4 was much higher than the 2010 Rav4. I'm waiting to see what deals are offered in October on the 2011. I think most dealers are now willing to sell the 2010 Rav4 at invoice.

    I did see that our local dealers in California show 3 each of 2011 RAV4s. But all are 4 cylinder non Limited models. Apparently there was an identical allocation to each of the 3 dealers. What I want is a Limited, V-6, AWD.
  • Bought 2010 Rav4 2WD + Extra Value Package (privacy glass + floor mats + tonneau cover + roof rack) + Mudguards for $19,900. Dealer took $500 rebate. Got 2 years maintenance.How was the deal ?
