    I agree with jayrider 100%. My wife drives a 2011 4WD Pilot, different truck, same gas mileage results... V6, 4WD, Hefty Curb Weight, AC running constantly with Climate control on Auto, heavy foot, & "city" driving don't exactly translate into stellar fuel economy numbers. I think on an average week if she doesn't take the truck on the highway at all, she gets 15 mpg. You've also got to wait for your engine to break in before you start seeing anything close to EPA numbers.

    The Highlander is a very nice vehicle though. I think its better looking than our Pilot. We looked at a Highlander before we bought our Pilot. After it was all said & done, size matters. Our Pilot is something like 12" longer than the Toyota.

  • I have no experiencing buying car but I bought my first 2013 Toyota Highlander LE Plus with 4WD, in Blizzard Pearl, with mud flaps MSRP: $35327 ePrice: $30651 They took off $395 because I refused to pay for Blizzard Pearl's extra fee. Negotiated to: 33,000.99 OTD We took the $2000 incentive with a $2300 trade-in credit Total:$28,7000 This took 6 hours straight of dealing and I'm not sure if we came out on top. Any opinions?

  • I would say you did great. 31k OTD for a 2013 Highlander LE Plus 4WD. I got a 2014 LE Plus 4wd for 4k more!

  • You got a good deal. Congratulations! Could you please share with us from where you got the $2000 incentive?

    What do you mean by ePrice?

    I'm seeing in the paper today at Gilroy Honda (San Jose, ca) $6,488 off all their 2013 Highlander's. they've got 7 in stock. Since I have a relatively old SUV from 2004, I can't see paying the price they're asking for the newer 2014 models. It's just too tempting to upgrade my ride at the blow out prices for the 2013 TH. I test drove the 2014 - think it's an impressive car, but the 2013 Highlander is such an upgrade from my 2004 pilot. Other dealers closer to home are offer $5,000 off MSRP, but I'm guessing they'd match the Gilroy offer if they really want to unload their 2013 inventory. What do you think? I just don't see the 2014 offering much with discounts in the near future.

  • Alright people...I finally got my 2013 Highlander base model for, what I feel, was a steal! I was able to lease it for $0 down and $264/month for 24 months with a $350 disposition fee due at the end of the lease. I calculated backwards and think the sale price worked out to be $24,550 on the a MSRP of $30,025. This is the absolute best deal I could find on the car and bought it from a dealer 1.5 hrs. outside of Houston since the "city" dealers didn't want to negotiate much because they are in a high demand area. The dealer was nice enough to deliver the car to me and told me that they do this often since they sell mostly over the internet. The best offer I go in Houston was $364/month for the same car. I suggest that everyone should get the best quote from their nearest dealer and then call up dealers outside major cities as they are willing to work on smaller margins. Don't believe a word of what these dealers tell you. Things like "I'll be losing money if I sell below this price", "I'm down to my nubs on this price, Can't go lower". It's all BS. I beat the "down to my nubs price" by $2400!!!
