    I'm shopping for the 2014 Corolla L, manual transmission, no added options. I received an OTD price of $17,300. Good deal or not?

    Hello bob568 .. can you break down the OTD price to show the selling price, taxes and fees?

    Thank you for your input! Just to make sure I understand... Are you saying you think it is a good deal?
  • MichaellMichaell ColoradoPosts: 7,384
    According to the Edmunds data, the dealer invoice for the Corolla L with manual transmission is $16,686 with destination. If you are being offered under $16K, then I would say that is a good deal.

    Margins on small cars are, well, small. $700 under invoice is a good price for a newly redesigned model.

    These are starting to show up in the rental fleets now. Saw a couple at Enterprise yesterday and one at Avis also. They are slowly being put into service as we speak!

  • I am planning to buy 2014 Corolla S with navigation , smart key , multimedia package and sun/moonroof. Dealer is quoting $23,750 OTD. Can you please advise a good price on this.
  • sandman_6472sandman_6472 Coral Springs, FLPosts: 2,743
    Is the "S" version the top of the line now? If not, that sounds pretty pricey...I have seen Camry's and Altima's quoted less than that down south here...and these are mid sized vehicles! I'd wait a bit till the hype dies down...and from the few I've seen on the road and at the store, they ain't that wonderful to warrant such a premium price! Damn!

  • Thanks Sandman.
    Yes, S version is the top of line now. Though it doesn't come with heated seats as seats are cloth and leather. Could you suggest a good price on 2014 Corolla S with Navigation and Sun/Moon roof.
  • Hello, I am looking at 2014 Corolla LE. The OTD price I received now is $19,558 (MSRP 19,400). Do you think it's a good deal? Any suggestion will be appreciated.
  • Here is what I discovered this week buying our 2014 LE....

    Went in thinking we wanted the L...spent about 7 hours at two dealerships, an hour or two talking to two other dealerships...got the following deal worked out...
    Toyota Corolla L
    discounted sales price: $16,172
    Trade in: (started at $600 for 1999 Sienna LE with 224k miles...moved it up to $2600...that was a gift perhaps to offset their $699 doc fee and $699 Toyota Guard 'package') The van really is not worth more than $1500..lots broken or missing on the poor thing, but one owner and great engine, always used full synthetic the past 10 years.
    Sales tax: about $453

    but my Dad (Toyota salesman for 15 years, Lexus salesman for 10+) who lives in another state convinced me that I really needed to buy the LE since the L did not come with the CVT engine and since we keep our cars 15 years, the newer technology may be a better bet for fuel costs and maintenance looking ahead...

    The difference between L and LE is $1500 MSRP...so I was fair and offered 1k over the L negotiated price to upgrade to the LE, they came back a few times, we finally settled on $1200 over the cost of the L mentioned above...

    I took the 0% financing for 36 months...love the extra room in the back seat, that was the selling feature for us...we have 3 very tall kids...they will love that the middle seat does not have a big hump where their feet go...all in all, the new changes were a perfect fit for our family.

    FYI, ToyotaWorld of Atlanta called me back and had LE msrp pricing at 17,920 with no doc fee...I just did not feel they would give me as much on my trade-in but they work on volume, so that might be a good place to start your search if you're in the southeast.

    Neighbors friend came over just now with a 2014 green LE so I had to go out and look it over. Very impressive little vehicle and the print ads don't give it full justice. It is a nicely proportioned vehicle and very Camryesque, very nice and the interior and dash look very good, a lot better looking than the current generation. if the cvt tranny is as good as Honda's, I think Toyota will have a major hit on it's hands! Not sure I'd want to trade my current Civic in for one right now, but if I were in ther market for an econobox right now, I'd give it consideration. Showed it to my wife through the front window as I'd love for her to go drive a '15 model and see if it just might work for her new purchase next year.
    Good job Toyota...very good job! Now I need to go test drive one just to see how good it really is!

    Congrats, they did a real nice job on the new Corolla...like it better than the new Civic actually. I no longer own a smaller compact but now have a small crossover and love it especially the ease of entry and exit. With my bad spine, it's so much easier for me now.

    I am in Baltimore, MD and just bought a 2014 Toyota Corolla LE Automatic on December 27, 2013, the car price was 15477 from Russell Toyota. This was their e-online price which actually is 300 more than another dealership in my area (Brown Toyota in Glen Burnie). With 500 trade in, 6% tax, title/registration, and destination, I got the OTD 16770. Financed the car with 1.9 Toyota. Overall good experience but I should have tried to lower the price a few hundred more (~16300). Overall, very happy with the car. Only two complaints, the car is boring to drive and everyone else also has a Corolla :) Beside that it is a perfect car. I am very happy.

    The few I've seen have been very nice looking. Aren't that many in the rental fleets yet but I know I will drive one eventually. A very nice job by Toyota.

  • I have got a equote for Corolla LE plus 2014 as follows... Eprice=17272+taxes (IL) 1266+doc fee 166.27+lic fee 15+lic plate221=18940.27 Out the door Can someone tell is it good price or I should have some room for negotiations? Thanks in advance.

  • I just bought a 2014 Corolla S Plus w/out moonroof for $20,650. The dealer wanted my 07' Corolla S and was willing to give me $6300. I'm very happy w/the 2014. This car looks better than a Civic in any trim and I'm getting 34 mpg in town! Show me a Nissan or Honda that can match!!

    I just bought '14 Corolla LE for $18,760 tax, title, out the door (with my trade, actually $13,760). If you're trading get a good handle on what your trade is worth. One store I went to low balled my trade by $1000. I was very disappointed. I had bought cars from this dealership before and their initial offer was quite fair. This time they tried to do a 3 pound ($3k profit) deal.

    Also, trading in can result in a bit of a tax credit as well, depending on what state you live in. If the sales tax is 7%, the $5000 trade in can save $350 in sales tax.

    I am looking at buying a 2014 Corolla LE (no other options). This will be my first Toyota. I'll use it mainly as my commuter car to work (have been driving a GMC Sierra) 52 miles round-trip. The salesperson at the dealership is my neighbor and assures me I am getting a great price. OTD (all taxes, fees and rebates) is $18,232.00. Before TTL the price was $16,857 (after all rebates). According to TrueCar, I believe this is a good deal. Let me know what you all think please.

  • mstrlucky74mstrlucky74 Posts: 19

    I don't think that's a good deal. Asked on what I have seen on here. I think you can get the S for close to that...

  • 1985mb1985mb Posts: 54

    Anyone recently (May '14) bought an S or LE? What did you pay before Taxes and Tags?
