Re: Buying a 2011?? Lets talk PRICES!!

I too am using USAA, which definitely seems to be the way to go...except in my region, they are only a little under invoice price. The major problem I am having is finding an FJ with manual transmission, and apparently the TT version will only come in auto per two of my local dealerships. Can anyone confirm this?

I agree about truecar.com. It truly helps set a great negotiating price.
Looking at the options on the FJ, I see that daytime running lights are an option. I would have thought that these would be standard equipment by now. But then again, they might not make any without daytime running lights so it really isn't an option then.

Being that you have to go in and order this vehicle, I would go ask your local dealership if you can order it with the mt. I don't see why it would be an issue, but then again I know nothing about mechanics

It's not an issue...just "10-14 weeks with a $2,500 deposit" and "maybe" they can get one...i guess this is the price I pay for a "custom" job...

They do, indeed, make them without DRLs. Two on my dealers lot as we speak. The fleet mgr, a friend of mine, said that many people don't like them, so he orders them without....

Dealership here wants 1000 down and they can get the vehicle within 18 weeks.

Re: Buying a 2011?? Lets talk PRICES!!

I have been lurking for a while now.....

Preparing to follow up a bit on a negotiation:

2011 FJ
4X4 Auto
Convenience Package
Upgrade Package
Passenger Side Armrest
Roof Rack
Bumper-Mounted Auxiliary Driving Lights

FJ invoices for $34159 (including destination)

Offered to me at $31800 plus taxes and fees

Seems to be a pretty fair deal to me. Any thoughts?

If you can actually get the vehicle for $2359 under invoice, that's a spectacular deal.

I just purchased my 2011 for $650 over invoice, a pretty good deal for my area.

On the other hand if $34,159 is the sticker price, we're back to a good deal.
