    The only way to compare is through the MSRP price. What is the MSRP price on the vehicle that you were quoted? Did it have NAV? Then other may be able to provide you with an opinion.
  • coleonyxcoleonyx Posts: 3
    MSRP is 38400. This is with the kdss option only; no navigation option. Thanks.
  • tangmantangman Posts: 127
    In our area in the Northwest, the dealer is taking approximately $2700 off MSRP on trails with no haggling. I have seen quite a few on the lots. Also, interest in this forum seems to be going down. Don't see many posts raving over the new 4-Runner. Good luck in your purchase.

    Cool...thanks, sounds like a good time to wait and see.

    2010 SR5 2WD
    Convenience package, 3rd row seating, power seats, running boards

    MSRP 34,074
    Paid 32250 + TTL in SoCal

    Finance guy was a jerk. Tried to pull a fast once with interest rates by getting you to focus on the payment and extending the term.

    t4r2010, thank you for your intelligent rendering of prices. I wish all posters were as intelligent and thoughtful. People who just state or ask for "otd" prices... shockingly stupid.

    and got an awesome deal purchasing a 2010 Prius from FitzMall in MD. My only regret so far is, I did not purchase the Prius in place of the 4Runner 5 months ago... so far and after around 300 miles I have a computer average 53.0 MPG in my Prius IV with NAV... the new Prius is an amazing vehicle...

    Hi all,

    I am looking to get a 2010 4runner and wanted to see what everyone was seeing in terms of APR. Thx in advance for sharing.

    - FYI I'm planning to put 30% down and my credit is excellent; I am looking for 0.0 or 0.9 or something similar
  • alexoralexor Posts: 1
    Unbelievable transaction. It seems like you really don't care about money, your money. Safety first is absolutely right.
  • jameswennjameswenn Posts: 5
    I ended up with 3.75 from Toyota Credit Corp.

    They started at 5.9, got them down to 3.9 and 3.75 sealed the deal.
  • helmut122helmut122 Posts: 6
    What was the length of the loan? I'm trying to find out what the best rate that Toyota is offering for a 72 month loan on a new 4runner.
  • jameswennjameswenn Posts: 5
    3.75 for 60 months.
  • careykcareyk Posts: 1
    Just bought a new 2010 4Runner SR5 4WD (4.0L 6cyl). Options included Premium Package w/leather (PT), Convenience Package (CP), AM/FM/MP3 CD w/ 8 speakers (DJ), Sliding Deck Rear Cargo Board (CD), Mud Guards, Cargo Cover. Paid $36,109 OTD. Didn't haggle much....thought I could do better ($1000 less maybe).
  • rlingerrlinger Posts: 5
    I am hoping to purchase a SR5 4WD Silver, Pwr Cloth, Pwr Outlets, Paint Protection in the next few weeks. I plan to put down 18K and have Toyota Finance the rest at 36 or 48 months. Also, dealer states that finding it in non-leather may delay deal. How much should I negotiate to? Other comments?
    Thank You

    jameswenn, how did you manage to get the 3.75? I am close to purchasing the 4runner and will definitely like to know how to get Toyota to agree to 3.75. Spare no details. Thanks in advance.
  • jameswennjameswenn Posts: 5
    The 5.9 was given to me by the sales guy after he pulled my credit (740) to structure the deal to agree to a sale.

    I went to the finance guy and he started at 3.9. Then we started talking about an extended warranty. He originally quoted me a monthly payment, but it seemed to low. I told him i wanted everything broken down. It turned out that he tried to extend the loan to 66 months and the extended warranty was 2200. I told him that i've seen it on the internet for 1200. He said he could give me the costco price for the warranty and he'd bring down the APR to 3.75. Their costco price was 1600.
  • rlingerrlinger Posts: 5
    At that point, I would walk away. Any modification to loan terms without disclosure is the tipping point to walk away. Go to or some other intermediary and restart the process with the internet sales folks. That kind of dishonesty is not acceptable.

    Purchased a couple weeks ago. Got dealer within $150 of the TMV price. The Trail has just arrived a day or so before I went to sign the papers and pick it up. I told the salesman I wasn't happy with the tires, Dunlop Grandtrek AT 20, a highway tire rated on as 57 of 61 tires in that category. (I suspect Toyota used this tire as it has low rolling resistance to increase the fuel economy.) I had not researched it until I got home. Called the sales manager I'd met earlier that day. He became convinced that I was a customer who needed to be satisfied. (We had purchased 7 Toyotas over 30 years including 2 previous 4Runners and its predecessor, the 81Trekker.) He told me to send him my preferences and my first choice being the Firestone Destination A/T which was no. 1 on list of all-terrain tires. (I'd put them on my Nissan Frontier a couple months ago and have gotten good results, on and off-road.) He agreed and I had them installed by the dealer a few days later at no additional cost to me. As for fuel economy, I'm getting an average from 18 to 20 mpg with some city and some highway driving and only 300 miles on it.

    I went to Capital One's web site and was quoted 3.88 percent for 60 months. I asked Toyota Financial to meet it and they did. We had a previous loan with them for the Camry we traded in and our credit it excellent. In addition, we had a substantial down payment.

    The reason we selected the Trail Edition is that we wanted Navigation with a cloth interior due to my dog, an 85 lb. GSD. I'm not disappointed to have the "off-road" version as I've been enjoying off-road adventures for many years.

    In addition to Toyota's stupid decision regarding tires, my other issue was no running boards which has been discussed elsewhere. (Had to use a stool for my wife to get into it.) Am having them added this week. Cost for the running boards is $300 and I'm guessing installation will be about $150. That's well under whatever Toyota would likely charge for them. The salesman did help me locate a source for the aftermarket boards, but I ultimately selected another vendor.

    In summary, I was pleased with the entire transaction, our third with this dealer. The dealer is, I'm guessing, a medium sized one, in northern VA.

    I got mine a couple of months ago, $15K down on an SR5, 2.9% through Bank of America for 60 months.
  • g35halog35halo Posts: 9
    Duke, were there any loan fees? I notice on bofa's site, that they mention and show an example of a $200 loan fee.

    Also, rates differ from state to state, where are you? In CA they showed 3.35 APR but said to call a rep to find out about fees.

    Is there any prepayment penalty?

  • mocosgueymocosguey Posts: 1

    MSRP $42,795

    Paid $38,300 & 300 Doc Fee. $38,600 & tax/tag/title.

    Dealer said it was $1000 below invoice.
  • mrmontymrmonty Posts: 3
    How bad were the original tires? What did they replace them with?

  • g35halog35halo Posts: 9
    Sounds like good price.

    That $300 doc fee is nuts. $50 is considered fair. Good overall deal nonetheless.
  • fxafxa Posts: 9
    This is a good deal. Can you let me know where you bought the car from
  • Westboro Toyota (internet sales dept.)
    Westborough, Ma.

    The $300 doc fee is cheap considering the price was $1000 under invoice, they need to make some profit somewhere.
