    Dealers are not giving great deals now as they expect cash for clunkers will be enough to boost their sales.

    Which dealer did you get your car from? The price seems to be reasonable.
  • acrodingacroding Posts: 1
    The price seems to be good. Could you tell me the name of the dealer? I am also on the market to look for a 2010 corolla in SoCal. If you don't feel comfortable to disclose the name here, could you send the name to my email: Thanks.

    This seems to be a very good deal. It would be helpful if you could provide the following for your car:

    1) MSRP
    2) Price you paid (not including taxes, title, and doc fees)

    Working backwards and assuming you paid $250 in title and $50 in doc fees, I figure you paid about $14.5k for the car.

    Also, where did you get the loyalty rebate?

    Shouldn't this be the purchase price or am I missing something here?

  • MSRP 19874
    Invoice 18388
    Was offered Invoice minus the $500 rebate and the 5 year cash for clunker lease rate of .00047.

    Has anyone else done the Corolla on the 5 year lease through the cash for clunker deal on with the $500 rebate?

    What was your payment per month?

    I have tried every local dealership within 200 miles and the best deals are at invoice.
    Nobody if moving from there.
    Anyone else done a cash for clunker lease? Can you breakdown your deal?
  • Can you tell me what dealer in Massachusetts gave you this awesome deal?
  • I bought a 2010 Corolla S at Corona CA.
    I paid $18700(OTD), in this prices include loyalty$500, graduate$1000,cash for clunker$4500, downpay$3000, and 60month with 3.9% APR.(it was first new car in my life, I will pay $180 a month.)
    So I actually paid $12700. was it good deal?
    Thank you

    Of all the Corolla's, that is the one I'd buy. A guy at work bought a white S and it's a nice lookin' ride.

    Thanks for sharing your posts - am posting my own experience. We brought a new 09 Corolla in July - drive out price was $15,000 (including TTL) - only options were mats, automatic and keyless. This was at Toyota dealer in Alpharetta, GA .

    All other dealers quoted ~16000 - Nalley had a special on a few cars they had.

    does anyone know what i should be able to purchase this car for down here in south fla??2010 corolla S 5sp manual..i don't qualify for any of the rebates and this will be a cash quote i recieved a few days ago seemed a little on the high side at $17,100.00..been comparing this car to the kia forte which at the moment seems like a much better value although the resale value on the kia is not the best compared to the toyota corolla.

    Has anyone else been charged a dealership fee? in my Out the Door Price I was quoted a $949 dealership fee on 2010 Corolla S. I have only seen this at one dealership and the sales guy told me it is pure profit for them and most dealers don't put it in the quote price but end up charging it when you actually write the check for the vehicle. Is this true?
  • splahnsplahn Posts: 2
    Today in Central FL I was quoted for a 2010 Automatic Corolla S invoce &17,529. This is with the 16 in alloy wheels and spoiler. I am not sure if this is a good price or not either. was your price standard or with options?

    A friend bought a 09 corolla 3-4mo ago for $15500 including TTL in Los Angeles, don't understand why their price go up to $17000+ OTD now. maybe 09 was in clearance.
  • Hi, everybody. I posted here -- movinout77, "Lost? Ask a Host for Help!" #2608, 4 Aug 2009 11:05 pm -- # 2608 -- since my questions were general in nature, but the motivation behind them was originally from my wanting to buy a Corolla. The power steering issues (which I also posted about) are making me leary about it though.

    If you have any experiences about paying in cash, what that means for shopping and *rebates* within the context of the Corolla, please share them. I'm also wondering if anyone had trouble finding a metallic blue S model recently as they seem rare when I search inventories. Any insight? Thanks.

    PS - Is anyone else disappointed that the rebate offers seem to have disappeared in August -- even for the '09's? Anyone see that changing anytime soon?
  • Stephen, I see that you posted this on Monday after you posted on Sunday that you weren't happy with the test drive in another thread. Did you have a change of heart?
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    first off,my name is spelled steven and 2nd after looking at and test driveing a 2010 kia forte EX yesterday my decision about the corolla is floundering a bit at the moment.when i was given the quote for a 2010 corolla S with auto for $17,100.00 i decided to compare this against the competion.what i found was for $17,490.00 msrp kia forte EX just blows the corolla away as far as haveing way more features for the money as well as a better are just a few examples of what the forte EX has over the corolla S model...power...corolla 132 hp,forte EX 156 hp,4wheel disk brakes,sirius sat radio with 3 month sub,bluetooth,usb plug in,..ect..
    so from a value point of view the forte wins out although resale value for the forte remains a concern.
  • Thanks. I'll looking into adding it to my list of candidates. Sorry for misspelling your name.
  • Yes there is in clearance, if you can buy a 09 corolla now(if possible), you can get $1500 (clearance rebate)more than 10 corolla.
  • It stinks that there are no rebates in my area (NY metro), but does anyone know what strings are attached to the cash rebates? Do you have to finance through Toyota to get them or would I be able to combine them with a cash purchase, if they ever make their way to my neck of the woods again? Thanks.
  • Ops! The clearance sale periods is over! I can't find any rebate information about 09 corolla at Toyota web pages, it was there in July, there are so many rebates program(clearance$1500, special$1000,factory$500,low APR etc,) may be cash for clunker get leads them out. I apologized gave you wrong information.

    I read your original post on the other thread (08 Civic vs 09 Corolla), and I think you were somewhat tricked. I also think you didn't do your homework and went in there unprepared. Not only does your deal sound kind of unusual, but the MSRP's you are quoting sound unrealistically high, although you don't mention which accessories are included. Did you look up the MSRP's on to make sure they are correct?
  • nniuqnniuq Posts: 4
    I do not qualify for cash/clunkers. Is it a bad time to buy a new car (corolla) if you do not qualify?

    If so, how long do you think it will be before dealers start making deals again?

    thank you!

    If you can, I'd suggest waiting until about 2 or so months after the C4C program ends before buying. Transaction prices are up some right now and supply for some models is tight due to demand created by C4C. I'm estimating it'll take a couple of months after the program ends for supply to rebuild and demand to slow enough to bring back the deals we were seeing a couple of months ago.

    Assuming you'll be financing, though, start making payments now. Make payments into a savings account or similar and then use that money to increase the size of your down payment when you do eventually buy. My brother did that; when he paid off the first car he ever bought he kept making payments to himself and used the money to buy every car since then with cash.
