    Thanks for sharing the info. Did you finance this? Were you able to get the 0% APR for 60 months that Toyota is offering on the 2013?

    Just picked up a 2014 AWD LE plus for 32,400 and kbb on a trade in. Not including tax, title, docs.

    2.9 financing for 60 months.

    Thoughts?

    We bought a 2014 Blizzard Pearl (white) with Vanilla interior XLE. Sticker was $39,030 and we paid $36,719. Not a huge discount but I didn't have many options as there were only 2 with that color combination within 150 miles of us (Massachusetts) at the time and my wife wanted that combo.

    Was able to get 2.35% financing through a local credit union for 60 months.

    Xenopowah:

    You stated that you picked up a 2014 LE plus for 32,400 with a trade. What did you trade in and how much did the dealer give you for this trade? Year, make model, mileage etc. Also what are your taxes, title, and doc fee. It will be helpful to others on this site to also indicate what what state, city you obtained this deal from. Thanks.

    Why is this forum such a mess? It was of no help to me at all during my car buying process last month. There are numerous duplicate threads on Highlander Prices Paid and this makes it very hard to find information and communicate with other buyers.

    Folks, quit wasting your time here and go visit ToyotaNation!!

    Sorry for all the confusion .. we migrated to a new forums software platform in mid-December, and recently we've been taking the existing Prices Paid and Lease Question threads and splitting them out into model year specific discussions. Unfortunately, this meant that there were as many as three different discussions for each make/model - one for 2014 MY, one for 2013 and older and the "original" discussion, which was model year agnostic.

    Not enough information to determine .. selling price of '14? Any options? Trade value? Other fees?

    A more complete breakdown of your deal would certainly help.

  • It's an XLE model without the rear blu-ray and split captains chairs. Front-wheel drive. The KBBB on the trade-in is $3000-4000. All fees and the ad-valorem (6.75%) tax included to the $34,000 price.

    Here is full breakdown -

    2014 XLE FWD

    "special color"

    Clear paint protection, door package, rear bumper protector, door cups edge guards

    8 pass carpet mats and cargo mat

    delivery fee

    MSRP $38,000

    admin fee of 595

    ad valorem tax of 2148

    title fee 18

    GA lemon law fee 3.00

    trade-in of 2000 4runner 217k miles, kbb 3000-4000

    total out the door $34,000. A portion financed at 1.8% interest

    Good? No Good? Fair?

  • Purchased 2014 XLE AWD in blizzard pearl with mats. MSRP was $38,980 and invoice was $36,265.24. We paid invoice and refused to pay any doc fees. That was OTD. We pick up vehicle in couple of weeks as dealer has it on order.

    In Missouri you can purchase Highlander for $ 200.00 over invoice through Costco approved dealers. In Kansas City that dealer is Molle Toyota.

    We got better deal from another dealer so deals are out there.

  • So I live in KC where did you get the deal? I want the exact same thing. Did you have a trade or outright buy because I know some dealers offer invoice then turn around and get it back in the trade. And I won't pay the stupid doc fees (extra profit margin). I'm a member of Costco and you can just go in and pay 200 over invoice no haggle? That's seems to good to be true. Thanks for your insight! Btw how do you like the highlander so far?

    Is ad valorem the same as sales tax? Do you get a credit on that tax amount for the trade in?

    Seems a fair deal though I can't seem to fully understand the math.

    I have been posting & reading many comments on Prices Paid & Buying Experience forum for years. Believe or not, I bought my last 3 cars by using the information on the forum. Most posters did a very good job on sharing their buying experience and price that they paid. On the hand, some people only mentioned little information such "we bought the 201X LE Plus for $XXX". I guess I will have to assume it is an AWD when you are in Boston and a FWD when you are in CA.

  • Yes, the best reports are when folk list the total retail price for the car and its options (with breakdown) and the final negotiated price. Then anyone can do a little math to get the percent off and that really helps since one can often apply the same percent discount to the car we are considering purchasing. eg: "I got a quote for 2014 highlander XLE AWD 4X4 Silver exterior & black interior Base model Msrp- 37500 Handling & destination – 860 Optional equipment Carpet mats + cargo liners – 230 Second row captain chairs – 275 Mud guards – 100 Remote starter -399 Total MSRP – 39360 e-price – 35762

    9.1% off msrp

    out the door price (includes everything from desitnation, tax, ttl & documentation): 38515$"

    This is GREAT and the way things should be done, good job!

  • What kind of prices are people seeing for an AWD Limited?

  • A buyer from SF on another site listed the OTD price for his AWD Limited at $44,500. I'm in NJ and would like to be closer to $43,000 OTD
