    Wow, that sounds like a good price. That's almost $10k less than the quotes I got. Could you tell me the dealer's name and location?
  • That is exactly what I want. Can you tell me what dealership you went to? Also what was the "invoice" price that they offered (prior to taxes, and other fees). Thanks in advance.
  • thats still too high for New Endgland anyway.
    I purchased same car as you EXACTLY except its pearl white and i bought it last october, a year ago, when they just started to get them from japan. I waited 3 weeks for it to arrive. i also had to special order it because no one had the pearl white color. they found one for me in CT and brought it to MA.
    I paid exactly $33775 out the door! :)

    Heres a few hints to everyone when negotiating:

    1. see what the TMV pricing is at edmunds... (DEMAND THAT PRICE OUT THE DOOR!!!)
    2. Never negotiate with salesmen, youll never win. (No such thing as a good deal)
    3. call ahead and talk to fleet manager ONLY
    4. tell him you will pay (THE TMV PRICE) out the door.....

    when i was buying this car the sticker for it was 35k plus, probably close to 35500, the sticker price MEANS NOTHING GUYS! its only their wishful thinking!
    I knew what i was gunnna pay for this car before I even called the toyota dealer. I admit the first dealer i called said no, but i got the 3rd dealer to say yes, and we agreed on the price right on the phone
    i walked in the dealer, the fleet manager greeted me, introduced me to a salesmen that only did my paperwork bcuz we already settled on a price...

    Thats how its done folks...

    never buy extended warrantees on new cars, expecially toyotas. those are 100% profits for the dealer. waste of money. the chance of a new toyota breaking are slim to none before 100k miles...
  • Now thats a great deal!
  • Went into dealer tonight..was attempting to compare a 2012 Limited with Nav and DVD to the 2012 Honda Pilot Touring. Sales manager told me that you can't get both on a 4Runner, and the only thing they could do was add an after market DVD player for $1600. He also told me that the best he could do would be $38,500-$38,800. Said the only reason he could do that is because his dealership is "paid for"..I think this price and him are a load of BS. I am trying to compare apples to apples, not apples to oranges. Thoughts?
  • Looking to buy a 2011 this month can you tell me what state youre from and what dealer you bought it from
  • I didn't buy it. But, I am in Louisiana, and the dealer is Hampton Toyota.

    These two vehicles are totally different in nature. The Honda is on a revised mini van platform, the 4Runner is a ladder-frame and very tough.

    What are you going to be using this for?

    Grocery getter - Honda
    Off Road and Rugged - 4Runner

    Not to bash the Honda, it depends on WHAT YOU WANT.
  • Here is what im being offered - a 2012 Limited, Nav, Tint, Running Boards, Sliding back deck -

    $38,500 - Yes this is a 2012 - they want to move it before month end... I think this is awesome - but let me know what others think
  • I am shopping around for 2012 4runner, May i know the dealer and location please where you got the quote please

    i am looking to buy a SR5. is it possible get it at around invoice price ?
  • I purchased a 2012 4runner SR5 4x2 a few days ago. It has the convenience pkg (CP), display audio with nav (EE) third row seat (TH), 3M window tint, nitrogen filled tires-(worthless). unfortunately it has the toyoguard elite on it ($699 msrp alone!)

    I'm in Florida, so the southeastern BS is something you have to work around.

    I paid $33685 total (including all southeastern fees, dealer fees, toyoguard elite) ---not including taxes. Heck, most of the 4 runners come with Toyoguard elite!

    When I negotiated online with multiple dealers, I pointed out the unwanted toyoguard, etc. and sat back and got some quotes. I got the top 4 quotes and let them battle it out. Then when I thought they were still a little high-- I put out a magic number, --that i knew was a little low. Taking into consideration the holdback and unwanted southeastern addon.

    I got one quote that was a little lower than my price, but by the time I spent going to get it and the fuel in volved, I would have spent the money saved. the dealer I bought it from was only 15 min from me. (they were actually pretty good to deal with)

    So, I wonder--taking into consideration on where I live--in Florida--

    Was $33685 (not incl taxes and tag) a good price for the options that I have? It seemed to be, so when they decided to cut most of what the Toyoguard costs off of the price, I jumped on it.
  • I forgot to add my sticker price was $36920 plus dealer fee of a whopping $700!!!! So--extra charges involved, some negotiable--- $700 dealer fee, $699 toyoguard elite, $880 processing and handling fee, and not listed on the sticker, but included--the southeastern dist charge of $900 (can't remember the exact amount, but it was close.)

    Most dealers in my area were around $500-700 + more than what I got it for. One was a little cheaper, but was out of the area--gas money would have broke about even.
  • Has anyone heard of any major changes and/or updates to the 4Runner for 2013?

    I am considering buying a 2012 SR5 4WD this summer but I would hold off until later in the year if any major redesign or engine update was coming.

    Thanks in advance.

    Just purchased a new 4 Runner MSRP $43,040 - Limited Nav (NV), Blizzard white (PC) special color, Carpet Floor mat and cargo mat (CF). Paid $39,300 without taxes and license. Traded in a 2010 Lexus RX 350 and they gave me $33,000 for a net trade of $6,300. Thought it was a good deal. This was in the Chicago area.
  • Over 8.6% off MSRP sounds like a great deal to me. If I can find a similar deal on a SR5 I would probably pull the trigger.
    Would you please advise as to the Dealership as I am also in the Chicagoland area?
    Thanks in advance.
  • jklossjkloss Posts: 39
    Got the deal at Grossinger downtown Chicago. As for Tramain.
  • jklossjkloss Posts: 39
    It was a 4R limited with MSRP of $43,040 and they sold to me for $39,300 plus the gave me a trade in of $33,000 for my 2010 Lexus RC350 which was
    35 months old. This was a better % discount than from Carmax. Thought it was a good deal. Love the car - so much better than a RX350 - has a few less features and a few more. I can give up memory seats and wood trim for little more space, better sound system, AC out lets and of course heated windshield wipers. Had the first 4R 22 years ago. Basically I am not a soccer mom and that is the audience for the RX350 - which is a Highlander with a up charge of $7000.

    Trying to decide on the 4 runner sr5, or the Jeep Grand Cherokee, had a 04 4runner, traded it on a bmw 328xi, want back my suv, the 4 runners have climbed in price but also am not looking at the limited, or the overland Jeep just want the best value. Any ideas how the pricing or incentives are in the North East PA region. Or is it just better to wait on a nice low milage 2010 or 2011. Thanks

    I also had an '04 4Runner (SE) with V8 which I bought new in late 2003. I loved it. Unfortunately, I traded it in on a '10 GMC pickup (5.3 V8) and was very disappointed with that decision. 2 months later I traded the pickup on a Corvette (over compensating). I then sold the Corvette and bought a '12 4Runner SR5 with dealer added leather. While I like the 4Runner. the new ones are programmed more for economy. However, the V6 delivers very little more in fuel economy than what I got from the '04 with the V8. If, however, you use the SHIFT mode and change gears yourself, you can compensate somewhat for the difference "feel" of lack of power compared to the '04 4Runner with V8. I will probably keep the '12 4Runner.

    I notice that most manufacturers program transmissions for economy. Don't know if the 4Runner "learns" one's driving habits like my 2010 Ford F150 did, but it certainly upshifts quickly. I just step on it a bit more and then it hustles along. Hope it learns something! The power is there, you just have to "encourage it".

    Dealer had a lot of "accessories" on the SR5 4WD, which I would have added. I negotiated eBay wholesale prices for factory running boards, wheel locks, flaps, tint and 3M clear bra. Paid 34K. Has Convenience package-moonroof and upgraded seats, rear cam, parking sensors. Bonus was getting High (Xlnt) KellyBB trade in on my 2010 F150 Super Crew XLT.
