Buying a 2011?? Lets talk PRICES!!

I wanted to start a thread for anyone looking to purchase a 2011 FJ or, those who have already purchased a 2011 to help with negotiating. I am in the midst of battling back and forth with 3 dealers on the East Coast and here is the scenario:

2011 FJ
AUTO
4WD
Convenience Pkg - $2150
Running Boards - $345
Upgrade Pkg - $3030
Floor mats - $222
Destination Vharge - $810

Total: $33477.00

I am hoping to get the truck for $30K but we shall see how my negotiations go! Any thoughts from other 2011 owners are appreciated.

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

Invoice should be about 30600.00 give or take a penny...

I don't know how much they need to sell them as none of us have a lot on the ground and the FJ sells with out a worry..

I wouldn't consider anything less that 1500 over inovice on an FJ.. and being the number 1 FJ dealer in the NW with 96 sold last year at our store, we can't be doing it wrong.. The next dealer to us didn't even sell 50..

Good luck in your hunt and report.. But I think you should start a little higher in your pricing...

Floor mats - $222
$222? Are they offering the rubber all-weather mats again? Surely they're not asking that much for those crappy cloth floor mats, are they?

I'm in the market for an FJ too, and a friend of mine turned me onto the USAA.com "Car Buying Service". I USAA has participating dealers across the country and the "pre negotiated price" price for the vehicle with options you are looking for is $30,193.

I've been pricing out the very same(for the most part) 2011.....the one I got a quote on has everything you want plus daytime running lights which are $40.00.....th best price I've been able to get is $30,584...which is right at invoice. I'm going to order or get in on a dealer allotment for one being built because I don't need or want the floor mats(get Weathertech instead), running lights or running boards(paralyzed and need extra room to transfer).....That would save me $607.00.....but would get the towhitch w/wiring harness ($349)....so the best I'll see around here is $30,300...and I'd make them throw in a passenger arm rest and maybe a shop/repair manual.
Good Luck to you.....let us know what you end up with !

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

Check Costco. When i bought my TT that had a 500 over invoice no haggle price. If you really do not want to deal with them and you can feel good about paying a tad over invoice this is a good way to go. When you buy this way you deal with the internet folks usually and there is very little high pressure sales BS.

you can also use true car to get a great deal that I am told they have to honor. I just put in the options that you had in your post and the true car price came back at about 29k

just my .02

I agree about truecar.com. It truly helps set a great negotiating price.
