2013 and Earlier - Toyota Prius Prices Paid and Buying Experiences



  • jonpriamjonpriam Member Posts: 2
    country toyota in tampa,FL had low 23K price. Although toyota has the 0% financing going on right now they said they couldnt offer the 0 fiancing and this low price together . If I wanted the 0% financing i'd have to forgo the 1.5K dealer discount.

    Which dealership did you go for this price? I'm in the SF Bay area as well and I'm getting a higher quote for prius two (but I'm adding leather seats).
  • smax2000smax2000 Member Posts: 3
    I bought my Prius 4 over the weekend + Warranty + Maintenance for 32, 300.

  • acme76acme76 Member Posts: 6
    CAn you please share plain vehicle price for prius 4 excluding tax/ttl etc so that we can get a true pricing on car itself ?
  • priusdocpriusdoc Member Posts: 2
    Cancel both.

    Then check out priuschat.com for much cheaper, legit Toyota warranties. I got warranties and prepaid service for over $700 off each.

    I'm not getting the warranties and prepaid for my Prius. Most people say that the prepaid is a waste of $$$ since the service costs are so minimal. The warranty is mixed with some people swearing by it, etc.
  • manchurianmanchurian Member Posts: 20
    I agree with smax2000. Cancel both. Its waste of $$$$.
  • mellowjdmellowjd Member Posts: 1

    Did you get the 0% 60 mo. promo with that price?
  • manchurianmanchurian Member Posts: 20
    No, I did not. You either get $1000 or 0%. I took $1000 discount.
  • hybcardhybcard Member Posts: 8
    Hi folks

  • gemni24gemni24 Member Posts: 4
    Just got today Prius Three for Sale price of $23,535.52 (plus tax, lic) plus doc fee of $80. I took the financing of 0%.
  • hybcardhybcard Member Posts: 8
    Thanks, it's a great price

    Can you please post the dealer?

    Also did you choose any options.

    I am getting Internet quotes of 23100 after 1k incentive.
  • gemni24gemni24 Member Posts: 4
    Sure, Its Momentum Toyota of Fairfield. I worked with Dan in the internet dept. I went with standard options nothing extra.
  • speedyprius_haspeedyprius_ha Member Posts: 1
    I just got a quote for a basic 2013 Prius IV in Sunnyvale, CA for $27950 + fees + 0% APR for 60 months. Yay??? or Nay??? Thanks.
  • evadooevadoo Member Posts: 40
    Can anyone comment on the “Customer must assign bonus financing cash” language used in the Toyota financing option below? http://www.toyota.com/local-specials/

    36 monthly payments of $27.78 for each $1000 financed. 48 monthly payments of $20.83 for each $1000 financed. 60 monthly payments of $16.67 for each $1000 financed. Only well-qualified, credit worthy buyers are eligible. Participating dealers to provide more program details. *$4000 bonus financing cash is direct from Toyota. Customer must assign bonus financing cash to 0% APR transaction through Toyota Financial Services

    If you do not take the 0% financing, I am wondering if you can negotiate with the $4000 bonus cash (to take this off the price rather than having it be assigned to Toyota Financial Services).

    Had a lot of trouble finding a 2013 Prius C Four in Louisiana with Blue Streak exterior color--there just were not many of them and price quotes were not great. I had been offering $22,750 and not having much response below $23,300 or so (TrueCar quote).

    Finally found one in Tennessee and just picked it up. Dealer actually had two Blue Streak Fours, one with sun roof (did not want) and one with.

    MSRP was 23,360+del of $795 and all it had on top was mats at $225 and rear bumper at $79 for total of $24,459 (comparable invoice on Edmunds says $22,730)
    Price discount was $3,000 from MSRP to $21,459 and then add back $399.50 dealer fee, which seemed ok.

    So net price paid was $2,600 off MSRP and $871 below invoice, and over a thousand less than my first (I thought low) offer.

    A little bit of a drive to pick up but had some miles for the flight and hotel, so minimal cost. Just really time and the one-way rental car from the airport to the dealer (it was some distance from major airport).

    Note: Also got the HSN $1,000 gas back offer for the one day it was on so that should help as well once I send the paperwork in.

    We just bought a black 2013 Prius Three with solar moonroof from Renton Toyota in Washington state for $26,000 (not including TTL). If we had gone with another color we could have gotten $2-300 cheaper, based on offers I received from other dealers in the area.
  • val_fval_f Member Posts: 1
    What dealership did you use the Boston area? Sounds like a good price!
  • 09_Audi_Fan09_Audi_Fan Member Posts: 17
    The Toyota dealerships in the bay area seem to have good deals.
    On a 2013 Prius 3, I received quotes of $2,800 to $3,000 off MSRP with 0% financing.

    jrmstr33, got mine at Toyota of Escondido. Used Carwoo and USAA car buying service to get quotes and I also contacted a dealer I'd heard about at Tustin Toyota (Orange County). Tustin had the best price and I was ready to buy from them, but Escondido matched their price plus threw in the applique and illuminated door sills so I bought from them since they're much closer to home. PM me if you want the Tustin contact - he is no-nonsense, quotes OTD prices.

    I purchased a new base model 2013 Prius Three in Barcelona Red in Annapolis, Maryland this week for $25,503.36 out the door (including T&T, dealer fees, etc.). I did all the negotiation via email, then went into the dealership to sign papers.
  • alic3alic3 Member Posts: 15
    Can you send me the information of the salespersons name in Tustin--thinking of purchasing by end of month.

    Bought a Prius 2 Barcelona Red at Rice Toyota in Greensboro, NC, for $22,000 OTD.
    I emailed the sales manager for an OTD quote on the least expensive regular Prius, and he answered with this offer. Great buying experience at this dealership.
