    I am currently looking at purchasing a used 2007 toyota yaris with 24000 miles on it. The dealer says they will sell it to me for about $11,490 which seems reasonable but I'm wondering if I can do better.

    Seems a little high to me. Check on Ebay and see what they are not selling for.
    Chuck Hutton Toyota in Memphis is advertising 2008 rentals with less than 3,000 miles for $10,990. It's definitely a buyers market right now. With gas prices going up though, you have to think that might end soon.

    Well, using Edmunds' Used Car Price Calculator, that's pretty much Dealer Retail for an '07 S-model Yaris Sedan.

    Some more details would be good, or just plug in the info yourself on this site. If it's the fully-loaded version, you should be able to still talk them down a grand or so as it shows trade in of 9800 dollars (that'd be what the dealer paid at the most). If it's a base-model hatchback you're looking at, then it's way too high.

    I use to sell subarus, and recently bought a jetta sw for my family...this time around we needed a company car and started looking at civic, corolla, yaris, versa, etc. The management and sales staff at rosner toyota in fredericksburg are amazing...they are standards above everybody else in NOVA.

    SHORT VERSION:

    On May 31st 2009 at Sandy Spring Toyota in Atlanta, I paid $11,666 for a 2009 4-door sedan with auto tranny plus $836 in sales tax, doc fees of $599, and yes the Toyo Interior/exterior Protection Package for $699 (Grrrr! but because of the "loss leader" advertised price of $11,888 for the vehicle I could not get them to come off of it) for a drive out the door price of $13,800 for a 4-door automatic with the $1,500 power package, integrated fog lamps, the groovy Yaris floor mats, and (aftermarket) keyless entry (I refused to drive out the door without it).

    Of course I did not get to choose a color at this price (Flint Mica exterior with charcoal fabric upgraded interior) but I couldn't care much less--I feel that since I got them to throw in the aftermarket keyless entry and also got them to come $222 off the advertised price from 11,888 to 11,666 that I got a very good deal on a new Yaris. Did I? You tell me.

    Depending on the feedback here, I will tell you the LOOOOONG VERSION of the purchase experience if you demand to hear it. All i will say is that if you are not willing to walk away, you cannot get the best price on a car. Period. Should I have walked away more than I did or was this a rock-bottom price?

    I know I got it way below invoice, but I also know that: 1) the Edmunds TMV price is $500 below the invoice price, and 2) the invoice prices on a car is not really the invoice price at all when you consider the rebates, the holdbacks, and other dealer incentives that I dont have a mommy-freaking clue about.

    FYI, the $1,000 dealer rebate that ended June 1 on the 09 Yaris was of course retained by the dealer.

    So far, I am very happy. I rented a Yaris a few weeks ago and LOVED it. Decided to see if I could get one at a low enough price to make buying a new car cost-effective for my budget (I often buy used vehicles). I think after a week that I can still feel good about the purchase price, but you tell me. Thanks for any feedback--any and all is welcome.

    I really don't know. If you got the base model with air with a msrp of around $15500 I certainly wouldn't want to pay much more than the $13000 you paid.

    If it was the $17000msrp S model about $13000 would be about the max too for a new 09. Both of them have an used 08 trade in of about $10000. (kbb.com) Seems like about an average deal.

    Happy drivin

    I got the base model, but the MSRP is 18,658, not 15,000 . . .here is breakdown:

    13,765 Base 4-door Automatic
    1,500 Power package (door locks, windows, etc)
    230 Remote keyless entry
    169 Carpet floor mats
    110 Integrated front fog lamps
    699 Toya Plus Protection package (ding removal, fabric stain removal, etc)
    750 Destination charge
    599 Tag, title, documentation
    836 Sales tax

    $18,658 TOTAL

    so i figured maybe a driveout price of $13,800 was better than average. Maybe not!

    I wouldn't have turned it down.

    Well I would blame myself except for one fact, they had already taken the money BEFORE they gave me the car so this is not my fault at all - I have bought quite a few used cars and know when to walk away - both my wife and I test drove the car and both agreed for a 2007 Yaris it was in very good condition - what came out afterwards was that this car had a been a daily fleet rental and they never disclosed that at time of sale.

    This is illegal in most places - now we are in dispute trying to get our money back but it looks hopeless - that's why I will never buy Toyota and to be fair it is not just them, it seems to be everywhere now.

    If you put your trust and faith in people that sell cars they will screw you if they can.

    This may be a dealership but this is not Toyota. You should report the dealership to the DA's office and IMMEDIATELY call the newspaper in your town ACTION REPORTER...and state your case on TV where it will make the Local news in your area possibly the national news. You will have your money returned to you because this will put whoever you bought the car from clearly out of busness...SPEAK UP..IF YOU DON'T NO ONE ELSE WILL....Remember NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING "FIRST"...and you did not say that you were having problems with your Yaris? You merely stated it wss not disclosed to you! CALL THE ACTION REPORTER...and go over to the station ...NOW

    Wife just paid $12999 blue sedan 15 in wheels ac cruise power window I I think the the name of the package is power package plus $1000 down 0% interst for 5yrs

    How did she do We live in the San Francisco area
  • I'm assuming that would be 12999 plus docs+tax+title?

    Sounds like a very good deal to me and I wouldn't mind the same (looking for a hatch though).

    What dealer?

    Toyota is # 1 and Honda is # 2. Your story is the reason why. Toyota has always bent over backwards to please and thats why they are # 1.

    Here is my story for you: I bought a Lexus SC 430, the most expensive car Lexus makes and I had gone over to the dealship dressed in clothes from bringing our boat back from Ft Lauderdale. In other words I was not dripping in diamonds. I was treated horribly and I caled Japan direct to speak with the President. He called me back twice to make certain that I was satisfied and the salesman got fired. Just because you can drip in diamonds doesn't mean you have to....Keep the Yaris its lots of fun...I like it better than any car I have ever owned.

    I permanently installed a Nuvi 5000 GPS in my right hand glove box with a bsck up camera. That was the only one that Best Buy could permanently install.

    My brother then bought the Honda Fit...It doesn't have as many storage compartments and the gas mileage is less ....enjoy your Toyota..You are #1
  • jetfirekjetfirek Posts: 16
    I use the compartment behind the steering wheel to keep my solar glasses...even though I have the ones that convert from regular glasses to sun glasses...the solars make it better and are good for nght vision....
    Love my Yaris...better than Lexus....and better than Mustang that I own...its just perfect....the dealership chuckles at me as they can't believe that I love my Yaris over the other autos I have owed....I paid seventeen something it was a special order with automatic everything ...door locks, tinted windows, aluminum wheels with nitrate or something like that in them that they do not lose "air" backup camera, gps installed...bought the exhaust tip and the decals for the doors etc...love my Yaris....
  • Scott0217, thanks for sharing your buying experience and price. I went to dealerships in Florida yesterday, and asked two of them to match your price, however, both of them turned me down. The cars I looked at did not have the fog lamps, the keyless entry, and Carpet floor mats, yet, they still wanted to sell the car to me at 13500+++ (dealer fee, tax, registration). Did you get any rebates from the dealership?

    Still waiting for your longer version of buying experience...
  • Hi everyone, just wanted to share my car buying with you. I bought a meteorite metallic 5 door liftback, automatic, model 1462A on Thursday July 23, and a pearl black one on July 25, 2009, at Pearson Toyota in Newport News, Va. My saleslady was Brenda Robertson. Here is what I got on my yarii.

    base = 13,305.
    all weather guard=110.
    cruise control=250.
    remote keyless entry=230.
    power package with steel wheels=1580.
    carpeted floor mats=150.
    freight=720.00

    sales tax:479.49
    gap insurance: 550.00
    tax:32.54

    title:40.00

    Just remember in your right hand glovebox across from passengers seat you can permanently install a GPS NUVI 5000 and simply close the glove box when you get out of the car. It will be out of sight and you 'll enjoy especially if you install a backup camera that works on the Nuvi 5000 ...I think its a Garmn but I forget....Love my Yaris....and do join YARIS WORLD....you'll be glad you did
  • hi home rainbow:

    i cant figure out why the dealer offered the car at such a low price either! it was in paper at 11,888 for 4 door sedan with AT, power package, fog lamps, floor mats. The dealer DID retain a 1,000 rebate in a program which ended in May. i am sorry i forgot to mention that. They did come off the price another 200 down to 11,666, and they threw in keyless entry because they told me over the phone that it had keyless and when i got to dealer and it did not i was a little perturbed.

    but remember i didnt get that great a deal . . .my drive out price was 13,800 because l paid 599 for the ding/dent/fabric stain removal package (they would not sell without it) plus about 800 in sales tax plus another 600 in title and tag fees . . .so they got their money that way, plus the 1,000 rebate. when you consider all that, they made a little money on the deal despite the fact that i got it WAAY below invoice . . isnt there also a dealer holdback for toyota too? I dont know that number, but they had to make a buck on it.
  • Thank you for your reply. $11,888 for 4dr, AT, Powerpackage, fog lamps, and floor mats is really a GOOD deal, i think. The ones I looked at were priced much higher, with less options than your car. I was out of town during the last 3 weeks and couldn't go to the deals to look at the cars. When I was there at the end of last month, they had a rebate for financing, but I don't think it's a good deal since I would need to pay a lot more for the loan. I'll go to the dealers tomorrow to ask about the price again. Hopefully I could get a good deal as yours.
  • I have been fighting over a few hundred bucks when I see that some of you are getting a loaded sedan for WAAAAAAAY less than the quotes I'm ending up with!!!

    I have 3 dealerships offering me a bit over 17,000, including taxes tags and fees. This is for a 2010 flint/charcoal AT sedan with the steel wheels power package, all-weather package, keyless entry, and carpeted cargo/floor mats. This I painstakingly negotiated down from 17700 over a period of 1 month!

    I live in PA, I am dealing with 3 PA dealerships.

    What am I doing wrong??? I feel like I'm doing a GOOD job negotiating and researching (I feel like I built the car), but they are not going less than exactly $99 over invoice. I thought THAT was a good deal. Isn't it...?
