Here's how it's done: Scion's Pure Price purchase experience means no haggle, no hassle. The price you pay for all products and services offered equals the dealership's posted and advertised price. Price menus are clearly posted in the dealership showroom for all products and services.

There is only one price for the car, no matter who you are or who you talk to.

well, there you have it. come and get a tC from me at Maita Scion in Sacramento. i have a few in stock.

manual 16,660
automatic 17,460

get you check books ready!

how come you're charging $110 more?? what ever happen to the "pure price"??
MSRP is $17315... the dealers shouldn't charge any processing fees... on my invoice, only thing my dealer charged me was:

$17,315 + state tax + tags & registration. (no processing fee!!! )
if your dealer is charging you for anything else than these... get up, and walk away.(don't let these guys charge you for prep or processing fee!!!!) thats an extra $100-500 dollar! you could use for alarm or other options!!! oh.. make sure you bring your own finance from online auto loan (e-loan.com or other etc...) less paper work and faster transaction... if they are "no haggle/hassle" like they claim.. they should respect your own financing and extended warranties... well, my dealer did... plus, you don't have to let them run your credit...(credit check deducts upto 5points! on your credit report)

well, i let my dealer run my credit because i was partially paying him with my personal check(down payment).. and he was a very good dealer...

i walked in.. he already had my car ready to go on the lot. (with my msrp sticker off!.. that is illegal, but i verified the sticker with the vin number... so it was ok)
anyway good luck with your tC buying..

although i did buy the tC so i didn't have to haggle.... researching from "www.carbuyingtips.com" helped me alot to avoid extra scams.. like "vin window etching, processing & prep fees, etc...) everyone should check it out, so you won't get ripped off for extra stuff...

I would've had to drive to another state to avoid paying a documentation fee. I don't think so.

SET dealers are different plus if you are buying a car within 2 weeks of its release date and want it with no options / in 5-speed and in a specific color - you don't have the "walk away" edge - because walking away means 3 months wait and a trip to TN, like Marty mentioned.

I paid $400 doc fee - pure dealer profit, and I knew it, but it was either that, or no tC till fall.

I bought from the third largest dealer in the nation and the doc fee (not prep fee) is preprinted on the form. Everyone, including salesmen, pay that fee, $299. Sure, it is pure dealer profit, but there is no getting around it if you want a Scion in this city.

I paid a $300 doc fee and was told upfront it was what they were tagging on to make some more money. I like having a tC since August.
