Availability of the 08 Siennas?

  • I checked with my local dealer a few days ago. He was able to see the date on which they had ordered their first shipment of '08s and the expected delivery date. He also looked up and told me there was a subsequent order and gave the second expected delivery date. He said packages were more or less the same in '08, but might have been speaking off the cuff.

    I was told by my dealer that 2008's would start appearing on their lot by end of Sept/early Oct.

    Looks like I'll try to find a 2007 LE #3.
  • do you mind sharing those dates with us? it would help us people sitting on the sidelines for '08s. i would think the dates for all dealers might be very close... appreciate your help.

  • More or less mirrored the Toyota press release - the first vans are expected towards the end of August. Next shipment in Sept. They said that they expect to have a lot of inventory built up by October (20 or 30 '08s by that point on the lot, they have four '07s left at this point). They still did not have pricing as of today but were able to tell me that one configured the way I would like (DVD, Nav) is in the first order group. Unfortunately, not the right exterior color. The dealership also told me that order to lot time was really fast - something like 20 days.

    One local dealer sent the following info on a 2008 Sienna XLE, which is "available" (not sure whether that means in stock). In any case, I'm not interested in this model but maybe somebody else here is (I'm looking for a 2007 XLE w/ pkg#4, which is apperently quite different from the 2008 pkg#4).

    Toyota's website now has the 2008 Sienna information available.
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Sounds pretty loaded up. Not bad for that (list) price.

    I think these value packages will actually bring transactions prices a bit lower for 2008.
  • hansiennahansienna Posts: 2,312
    MOST Toyota dealers have had an abudant supply of 2008 Siennas on their lots ready for selling for weeks. :blush:
  • I am trying to decide between an XLE 07 & 08with no extras added . What will I be forfeiting if I go with the 07?
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Only one thing - Bluetooth, and even then, only if you purchase the now optional JBL sound system.

    Surprisingly, you may give up more than you gain. The XLE dropped the JBL sound, the tow package, and I think DRLs. Maybe fog lights, too.

    They dropped the price to reflect the lesser content on the 08s, but 07s have rebates.

    Unless you really want Bluetooth, a left over 07 has more content.

    I sat in a nice 2008 Sienna XLE Limited yesterday after I had my 06 Sienna Oil and Oil filter changed at the dealership. MSRP $ 41,727 less $ 1585 package discount = bottom line $ 41,142. :shades:
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    The 08s juuuuust came out, wait a month or two, they'll discount them more.

    The local no-haggle dealer didn't have a single Sienna priced over $36k last time I checked. That's after discounts.

    One conspiracy theory may be that the demand for high-end models is high, so they are the first to disappear from the lots. Some people want theirs with everything.

    ...XLE LIMITED AWD with EVP #1,beautiful...sticker is $39,504.00...local dealer offered at $36,950..I wonder if it is a fair price. I am dying to get out of my EXPI 05 lease and I still have 5 payments plus $250 termination fee...I was given 3 yera lease 12k,$8000 down $482 monthly including tax and gap insurance....any one care to opine?...please do...
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    $2500 off a brand new van when 2008 prices already dropped from 2007 levels sounds good. Yes.
  • svofan2svofan2 Posts: 440
    Thanks ateixeira, i was hoping for your opinions...how about the lease deal?...what is your thought on this part of the deal?...I found that the invoice (dealer's) on the LIMITED mentioned is about $4000 below sticker...it is a lot..in that case they are going about $1500 above invoice. Should I wait a couple of months when they are more abundant, or should I bite now?...thanks...
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Sorry, I know nothing at all about leasing, so you're asking the wrong guy.
  • svofan2svofan2 Posts: 440
    ...hey!.. I am a nubbie too..did you buy and what..thanks..
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Yeah, I was a cash buyer. $25.2k for a 2007 Sienna, plus TTL.

    I bought a Forester in 1998 and it was a great car, maintenance only, no repairs. For 9 years I had no car payment and could save up.

    Still no car payment now. :shades:
  • svofan2svofan2 Posts: 440
    ...good math by me...and very good for you I used to buy and change evry 3 years,some men like to have different women in their lives,me?...I love cars...lol.....but then I discover that leasing was not as bad as I thought and here I am going into my 2nd lease. I must confess that the next is oing to be buy since I will be 66 and climbing...lol
