    I will, but I'm guessing I won't get it. The deal always is, if you buy it now, it is cheaper and discounted :)

    I've pretty much got a deal locked in for 2013 Rav4 Limited with Navigation

    Deal: $28,200 OTD inc tax and tag
    Price of car would be around $26,050 if I take out the tax and tag.
    MSRP: 28,955

    They are throwing in Navigation along with all the other standards of the vehicle. Is this a good deal or can it be better?

    That's about 10% off MSRP. I'd call that a great deal..Go for it!!
  • 2013 limited AWD, no navi
    Deal: 27,335
    Doc fees: 151
    Tax 1,913
    OTD: 29,400

    MSRP of 29,947

    Good deal?

    Just bought a 2012 RAV 4 2WD with 13K Says its a base model but has Sport Wheels, Moon Roof, BT, Leather, Fog Lamps, Roof Rails, Could not find another that was not a 4WD in the price Range within 150 miles. Did not like the 2013 changes.

    Paid $21,500 plus $300 tax which I thought was $1000 too high. But we could not find one with low miles with the same equipment. We could have bought the base 2013 for $1400 more but the wife preferred the room under the back floor and cubby holes of the old style.

    This time she wanted some bells and whistles. We had tried to buy it before and the dealer would not budge. So we decided to offer $1000 under NADA/KBB since we keep cars for 5 years or more.
    She had a 2006 we sold. (It had been in a bad wreck (>$10,000 damage) Carfax was a mess, so the dealers were offering $6000 ACV. We put it on CL along with the VIN number and accident information (30K ago) sold it for $9500.

    HI, This sounds like a very good deal. Can you advise of the dealership's name, salesman's name and location ? I am in the market. Thank you.

    Just purchased a Rav4 XLE FWD for 22707(car+freight+ 750 financing rebate for graduated student) + Title, Taxes and dealership fees. Out the door price worked out to be $23481.40.

    Car also comes with floor/cargo mats and roof rack cross bars.

    Bought in Northern Virginia.

    Dealership was willing to go pick up the car from another dealership since they didn't have the color combination I wanted.

    Hi everyone,

    i received a quote for an xle awd- $26,000 otd. (i live in nj) would this be considered a good deal?

    thank you in advance for your responses.
  • Does it include tax? I got a 2013 rav4 xle awd for $24,800 total came upto 26K with tax,title and fees. I live in WI.
  • Just bought in NJ

    Sticker $27986.00
    Paid Out of Door $27200.(Include NJ Sales Tax $1729.23,$359 Doc Fee,$401.00 Licence and Reg,$7.50 Tire Fee)
  • Just traded in our '11 Honda CR-V SE for a '13 Rav4 LE in Silver. Walked out at 24.0K OTD, hopefully that was good. We felt like it was. Enjoying the car so far!
  • Incredible!! Turned down a brand-new model '13 zero miles for an used, old-style model '12 with 13K miles for $1400 difference ....Even with zero mile, the '12 should be at least $2K below the '13 but different stroke for different people.
  • How much would it be for the '13 LE without trade?
  • It doesn't matter if you trade or not, my OTD on the Rav4 was 24k. Had equity on our trade so it went into the downpayment, which was nice.
  • I just took delivery of a '13 RAV 4 LE yesterday (Sept 20), and also walked OTD for $24,000. I felt this was a good price, but have been somewhat second guessing, so it's comforting to see others paid same or near same (unless we're all deluded). My Toyota is red with latte interior, and that OTD price included 2 sets of mats (carpet & all weather), roof rails, and tonneau cover, as well as the local tax, dest. fees, doc feels, warranties, etc. I live in NC but bought the car in Myrtle Beach, SC at Sparks Toyota.
  • Hi Yessig:
    I think you got an excellent deal. Can you share with us which dealership you received the quote from? I would like to get the same deal from them.
    Did you buy the car using this price?

    Purchased new 2013 Rav4 Limited FWD, Shoreline Blue, Ash interior
    Options Blind Spot Monitoring, JBL System and Carpet Mats.
    Price $28,595 + tax and tag.
  • Can someone explain 'lease cash' with regards to the lease offer on the EV? Is it a roundabout way of the dealer getting the tax incentives and other rebates for electric vehicles and then applying that to the cap cost?

    Anyone know the residual and money factor on this deal?

    Is it possible to do this without any other cap cost reduction to lower the drive off?


  • Hi there,
    I live in NJ and shopping for RAV4 XLE AWD. $26K looks excellent, but does it include all the fees and taxes. What is real OTD price? The best I've got so far is $27.5K. Where exactly did you get $26K? Could you tell dealer's name/dealership? Tnx
  • Could you please let me know the dealership, where you got that rare deal?
  • There was an Ad for the last vehicle at the dealership for RAV4 XLE FWD and I took it on Friday. I have been waiting for a good deal for a month and I think it was worth the wait.
    This was with the cross bars + floor mat carpets + cargo mat carpet = total MSRP = $25604
    I got this for $23104 (dealer price including destination/processing/handling)

    Along with the fees and taxes (document fee/reg fee/taxes) it came to $25500.
  • Past Monday I bought new 2013 RAV4 XLE FWD $22,000 + Tax Tag & title in Socal ( Greater LA area ). I think I got awesome deal. This was less than TrueCar price and almost $2k below factory invoice price. This included $500 Toyota discount as I went with my credit union for financing.
  • This was with the cross bars + floor mat carpets + cargo mat carpet + cargo privacy cover = msrp was $25,375 for $22K + TTT from DCH Toyota Torrance in SoCal.I requested price quote via Edmunds and fixed the whole deal via email. James (goes by Judd ) & Dana are the best internet sales guys & played no games. I was in and out of the dealership within an hour with my RAV4.
  • Just bought a 2013 XLE Rav 4 (14 miles) model 4440A, Magnetic Gray, Ash Fabric interior, Bluetooth, sunroof, carpet mats.... $27, 988 (sticker), MSRP $25, 205. I negotiated OTD price of $24,500 which included tax, tag, title, all dealer fees AND they upgraded cloth seats to my choice of leather!!

  • Yesterday I bought a 2013 Rav4 XLE from the suburbs of Atlanta - Magnetic Gray with Ash Fabric Interior. Added Options were Navigation and Carpet Floor & Trunk Mats. MSRP $26,634 (including added options). Negotiated OTD price was $24,000 , including all taxes and fees. .
    Once thing I observed is that most of the in-stock inventory has multiple options already installed (ToyoGuard, Paint protection etc) which you may not want, but the dealer will still try to make that money out of you. So you would have better luck with the price if you locate a vehicle in their inventory with just the options you need (or nothing at all, if the option you require can be added at the dealership) .

  • Just looked at the new 2014 rav XLE with all the options. Loved the body style, but I HATE the design of the interior. The seats are not leather, they are softex. How can they not put Leather for the top of the line rav. The design on the dash is horrible. This made me not want the RAV4. Whomever came up with that interior design and them softex interior should be fired from toyota!

    I'm thinking about leasing a 2013 RAV4 LE and saw a lease deal on Toyota's website:
    $199 a month for 24 months and $999 DUE AT SIGNING
    1) Is this a good deal?
    2) Is it negotiable further or is it low enough?
    3) What does the following mean? "Special lease offer requires application of $2100 GST RAV4 lease subvention cash."
    4) I might buy the car at the end of 24 months (LEASE END PURCHASE OPTION is $16876 plus tax, title and license). Is that price negotiable now or at the end of the lease?

    The salesman says that the lease is a Toyota Corporate plan and is pretty much set in stone.

    Thank you for your help.
