I got my silver prius package #9 3 weeks ago. I waited 2 months. I paid 26500. I would not buy from any dealer marking up a dime over MSRP. You can say anything you want to make a deal happen. I'm familiar with many tactics dealers use. I maintained my position and got a fair deal from an honest dealer (yes, they do exist). For dealers like yourself, you may loose more than you've gained. Toyota has asked consumers to report price markups and have stated that they will reduce dealer allocations based on their findings. Word travels fast, it's the best advertising there is. This forum is an example. I'd say, since you resorted to posting, you're not getting many bites. Try MSRP or less and it will fly off the showroom floor.tucker mayer said:We have had only a few arrive at our dealership in sarasota, fl. In every case the demand has been so strong that customers willingly paid $4995 in excess of the msrp in order to obtain this remarkable vehicle. No surprise, really. Supply and Demand is still the dominant economic principle of our economy.
We will shortly have another here - salsa red; package #7. Our price will be $29,247 plus taxes, transfer of tags and dealer fee of $499.
It happened with the Volkswagen mini truck 20+ years ago too. Like someone said it's supply and demand. I'll walk before I'll pay over MSRP screw Toyota rip off dealers.Bob Allen said:My car broker told me she has seen this happen many times. It happened with the new Beetle, the PT Cruiser, the Mini Cooper and now with the Prius.
Seattle is so chock-full of great coffee shops that it'd be hard to go wrong. We only have one really great coffee shop here, and it's way over on the other side of the river from me.

Not a coffee drinker, ever, but MAN if you're anywhere near Seattle, find a Caffe Ladro. ....drooling....
