I got, 5 speed, floor mats, spoiler (wasn't going to get it, but it came like that already), leather shift knob, bazooka sub, tax at 5.4%, doc fee at 400 (but they took 200 off the price of the car?? Is this allowed? I didn't think so? I know its all semantics, but they wrote it down like that) and gap at $500, and platinum warranty 72/100k @975!

I paid $20,120.. i need to hit the 20k mark to get the 72m month payment plan... 328 per month!


hehe
I LOVE IT!

My wife and I are fighting over who drives it everyday... its pretty much whoever leaves the house first.....

wow $200 off?? was that cause the car already came prebuilt with options and not special ordered? .. they probably got stiffed on an order and they needed a lil nudge to get that one off the lot... but great for you!! basically nobody else i've heard of has gotten any kind of deal.. not even $1 off

$400 is the lowest that any dealer in the Atlanta area charges...Mine was $500. Of course, I also got my tC in two days, so I'm not complaining.

Oh, and $1,000 seems pretty high to me for something that is likely to be worthless...

Hmm... one more tc for the wife.... that would be nice, can i send the payments to your house??


It may be worthless and I really hope that it is... seeing how its a brand new assembly (everything is currently in use elsewhere except for the roof) I am a little concerend when I hit 97k miles that the roof may devolop a small leak, or something else won't interface quite as nice. The drive by wire system also scares me a little bit. I figured it was a 7% price increase and with a 6 year loan it makes it really worth it.

It is the Toyota Platinum warranty (www.scion1.com) then check out finance rates. Yeah, he gave me the 200 off the doc fee's but he didn't show that on the report, he pulled it off the msrp of the car and charged me the 400 on the doc fee's. There is another dealer here doing the doc fee's for 185 and they give you an extra oil change for free, plus they will come to your house and pick up the car for any and all service while leaving you a loaner for that day or two. BUT THEY DIDN"T HAVE THE CAR I WANTED. Only these guys did. well I really wanted a 5sp flint mica w/ air bags... but was told 2 month wait.... who would want to wait that long?? I got mine in an hour... well, this was the 3rd dealer we visited and had already driven the car two other times....

As I was told by my dealer, they don't have to charge a doc pref fee on scions, in NY it's $350, so my dealer didn't charge me that. I don't know what state you're in, but that's what I was told. Also, because you ordered all those options, they probably gave you a little break. My break came b/c the sales guy went to my highschool, and I knew him from a few years ago, nice guy too. Hey, bottom line, you saved some money and got a sweet ride...congrats!

Its the base price of the car that they won't negotiate. They extras are 50% or more profit, so they can refund some of that.

it sounds nice and all but i wouldn't want, or trust, anyone i don't know driving my car.

that sub just gets me everytime i see the price for it. it is way too expensive for what you get.
but glad to see that you like the car as much as we all do.

it is way to much I agree. I just needed to hit the 20k mark and I didn't want the mirror or the performance stuff (I like it quiet, if I want loud I will go with my 97 accord coupe se w/ some minor mods....

that's cool. i liked it quiet too. it had a real luxury car feeling to it when i was accelerating and i couldn't really hear any noise at all. but now i have the trd muffler on it and it sounds powerful. i wouldn't have it any other way.
