  • Hi -

    Curious if it's possible to just custom order my Yaris. I want a stripped down yaris with nothing more than the convenience package, but I also want ABS.

    Can I get ABS w/o getting the power package?
  • i live in san diego, calif. got my 4d sedan auto with power package in silver today. paid $15,900 out the door. is this deal okay?

    About the radio installation kit.
    Best Buy here (Bend OR) put a radio in my 4d with no problems. They took kit for Echo, or maybe Scion, and had to do a little modification, but no problem. Anyway, $125 for radio installed beats the dealers price.

  • Experience was not that great. The local dealership only had 2 Yaris on the lot. Both starting at $14,600...automatic, and just more stuff than I needed. After explaining to our sales rep's boss what we were looking for (manual tranny, no frills) he tried to talk me into buying a Corolla.
    After threatening to go elsewhere he explained that the other Toyota dealer in the area didn't have a manual Yaris either. When I said threatening to go elsewhere, I was thinking places upwards of 100 miles away.
    After we both got on the same page, he told me he could order a manual tranny Yaris, with Convience pack for right around 13,300.
    I had the car the next morning and love it to death. My intentions were to just use this as a temporary car until I was able to pay it off, and then upgrade from there. After driving it now for a week...I might just hold onto it as long as I can.

    Hi all

    I got a blue 4 door hatch (Canadian car). Love it, but one thing I've noticed is that the idle isn't steady. It settles to about 600 rpm or something, then it slowly dips, until the idle becomes a little rough, then it jumps up to about 800 rpm for a bit, then settles down and the whole thing starts up again.

    Has anyone else had this issue?

    thanks

    I am close to buying a new Yaris. Today I went for my first test drive here in Portland. I went to Ron Tonkin Toyota on 122nd.

    After a test drive, the sales guy asks me if I want to come in and talk about figures. I said I would like to know how long/difficult it would be to get exactly what I am looking for. Next thing I know the sales manager is singing this tune about how entry-level cars have no mark-up. He thrusts a piece of paper my way and says "So, if everything is okay with you, just sign here." I look at the paper and it's a contract for 60 months @$300 a month. That's $18,000 for a MSRP of $14,000. I hadn't even told the guy exactly what I wanted and now he wants me to sign a contract?
    The sales guy was cool, but the sales manager was seriously mistaken to try that shyte with me. No way I would go back to a place like that.

    Friend of mine is interested in Yaris hatchback (5 sp, no power options). Anyone got a good deal on this model in Boston? I have been reading this forum that production number is low for hatchback.
  • rerednawrerednaw Posts: 16
    Sorry I'm out over in the west (Nevada). But the best price I got (Hatchback Yaris) was $12,207 (and it was NOT easy to get a decent price). It is sad that so many dealers try to take everyone to the cleaners...

    Have you tried Costco pricing? They usually come in around $150 over invoice for little cars like the Yaris.

    Good luck!

    edit: just wanted to add that price was at the end of the year, before the recent increase.
  • A final price of $14,741 (taxes, fees already included) for the same '07 hatchback and options. My offer was within the same range as the MSRP. I haven't fully negotiated yet, but after seeing what you were offered, I think I got a pretty good deal.

    Did you check edmunds.com's TMV for it? I looked, and my offer of $14,741 is right in the ballpark. You might want to check out another dealership.
  • Out the door price of $14,741. Auto trans, power package, keyless entry, carpets, fold down rear seats (though I think that's standard for the Hatchback). So, deal or no deal? Looks like a sweet offer, but do you think I can negotiate further? Salesguy gave me $300 over invoice, and said that was the best he can do. I think he can do better, but I'm horrible at negotiating. This is my first car buying experience, too. Any thoughts?

    One local dealer in Boston quoted for Yaris Hatchback with these options. All without side airbags and ABS options. How's that? I thought Power Package comes with 15" alloy wheels. But they only mentioned steel wheels with wheel covers.

    * 5 speed, with Power Package - $12626
    * Auto, without Power Package - $12762
    * Auto, with Power Package - $13484

    I just bought my second Yaris from Wolfchase Toyota in Memphis on 4/14/2007 (my son now has the first one). I paid $13,200 ($13,689 MSRP) for a Polar White hatchback with AT, Option package A, arm rest and floor mats. This was the one with the least fluff stuff on the lot. Last year on 4/30/2006 I had to pay full MSRP for an MT hatchback. They must have had close to 10 hatchbacks to choose from versus 1 last year.
  • I live in Southeast Missouri. I can get a Yaris for $14,272. - The price includes all fees and discounts. - The options are:

    Yaris 4-door Sedan
    Manual Transmission
    Silver color exterior
    Charcoal color interior

    Factory options:
    PQ - Power package (with ABS) -
    CP - Cold weather package -
    KE - Keyless entry -
    FE - Emissions -
    EF - Bumper protector -
    CF - Carpet floor mats -

    Dealer options:
    Tinted windows
    Synthetic oil

    Less than 200 miles (they have to pick it up elsewhere)

    Is the price good?
    Is it worth it?
  • lhansonlhanson Posts: 268
    Looks like that is about right. You should be able to get about $500 off MSRP (window sticker). Don't know about the dealer add ons.

    Santa Maria Toyota was great to do business with and I paid 12500.00 for the hatch back with the (Power Package) power windows and remote entry, AM-FM CD, back window washer, air and 5 speed and floor mats. I am happy!
  • lhansonlhanson Posts: 268
    I show MSRP of $13,440 on your car. At $12,500.00 you should be happy. How much was the documentation fee?
  • lok888lok888 Posts: 1,753
    Hmmm... sounds like a $500 to $800 dealer discount for Yaris (any models with any options) for most of us these days now.
  • kenc9kenc9 Posts: 7
    Line 1. B, Documentation Fee was $55.00 and the MSRP was $13200.00
  • kenc9kenc9 Posts: 7
    It appears to be a $700.00 discount. I emailed three dealers for their very best price on a bare bones Yaris with at least air and this one was offered to me.

    I was mistaken about the MSRP, it is 13,340.00 so a discount of $840.00 is the right number so you were closer than I on this.

    You have kind of an unusual configuration. Most people are trying to save money by getting a Manual Transmission, but you have the most expsensive option package with it. I have the least expensive option package with a Automatic Transmission. You have a very reasonable documentation fee at $55 compared to the $348.50 that I had to pay.
  • kenc9kenc9 Posts: 7
    All I wanted was the air and maybe a radio, I wanted the cheapest car they had and they offered this one. I didn't ask for the power package but this was what we got. We wanted the 5 speed for fuel savings and power. I am not sure why this was offered to us because we only wanted a bare bones car with air and radio. This one was their cheapest Yaris so we took it. I had no idea how much this package was worth because we never shopped it.

    I think we got lucky! :)
  • lhansonlhanson Posts: 268
    I think that your fuel savings are going to neglible with the MT (1.6 mpg) according to www.fueleconomy.gov, but you probably do get a little more power with the MT and you probably did save about $800 on the front end, and it will probably cost less in repairs over the life of the car if you aren't too hard on clutches.

    My experience with a manual versus automatic, in spite of what the EPA says, is that the highway is all about rpms so many autos actually do as good or better on the highway these days. In the city, the manual is worth 2-4 mpg because of the ability to better anticipate situations and shift to the proper gear. The control and smoothness of the manual leaves any automatic in the dust especially on a small car with just adequate power.
  • lhansonlhanson Posts: 268
    www.performancetoyota.net has a 48 hour sale on this Saturday and Sunday where they will sell any Yaris in stock for $1,000 off MSRP. What a difference a year makes. I thought I got a steal last weekend at $489 off MSRP at Wolfchasetoyota.com. Happens to me every time.

    I have yet to close a deal as I am still pitting dealers against each other. I will use at least five dealers and let them fight it out as to who wants take my money. So far I have an offer (second dealer and better offer) to purchase the car for $13,100.00 out the door for the PQ package with fog lamps and manual trans. and 15" steel wheels. I have found the(a)supplier of the cruise control systems that the dealers use for $250.00. Will find out this monday how much the dealer wants to install it. Probably do it myself.
    Do any current owners have any comments about the car? Like reliability, comfort on long drives etc.

    Last night while on NYS Thruway (I-90) at Pembroke rest area, I saw a parked Yaris 5 door hatch. Okay, the "5th" door is the trunk opening. It was orange in color (it was at night, streetlight illuminated), and clearly it was a hatch. It had Ontario plates on it. I liked it better than the 3 door hatch. Anyone out there know if and when this version is coming to the States?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 27,889
    Probably never... The Scion xA is basically the 4-door Yaris hatch.

    Someone that I work with told me that Toyota has a $1,000 discount for repeat buyers. Has anyone heard anything about this? Sounds a little fishy to me.
