Hypothetical Buying Question

a local dealer has 3 07's in stock and they have been sitting on his lot for at least 3 months that i know of. one is a black cherry with convenience package, upgrade #2, roof rack, hitch, and tire cover and MSRPs at around $31,300 (or thereabouts).
Question: what SHOULD i be able to buy the thing for based on what is going on nationally with the 07's?

the told me they'd give me a "good number", but i haven't seen that number yet.

Without looking at the spreadsheet, I would guess 28K would be a good starting point.

I was offered a similar 2008 for 28K. Only problem is that it is 7 hour from here.

Re: Hypothetical Buying Question

Go to New Car Prices, Used Car Pricing, Car Reviews by Edmunds Car Buying Guide and get the invoice price there. That's the price you should pay no more than....ever.

Re: Hypothetical Buying Question

I agree with FJ Dave. The invoice price should be where you want to start and hopefully stop. Especially on 07's

Re: Hypothetical Buying Question

I would start well below. Offer 26500. You should be able to get 500 below invoice at this point, afaiac.

Re: Hypothetical Buying Question

Hey I just went to my Zip code in NY and it said "up to 750" cash back on 2007 FJ Cruiser! So check buyatoyota.com for your area. If its 750 should be able to get at least 1000 under invoice!
Maybe I should start looking again..I was gonna wait until the spring for an 08.
