I went here just this past weekend to put down a deposit for a 2009 Prius, and my salesman Pat. Ng was pretty nice. I specifically requested that I want a base model in silver pine mica. However, he said the msrp on hovers over 24k, which is well above the additional $500 on top of '08 base models ($21500) due to rising costs of materials. He said that only black and red or basic colors come with basic prices, and that my silver pine mica has additional features (cruise control, etc) that I thought were standard. Can anyone enlighten me on this? I hope they are being honest salespeople (as ironic as it sound).
