The troubles of a first time car buyer

So...I just bought a Rav4 base model for 25,300 out of the door. Is that a good price?

I've seen previous posts where some "lucky" individual bought it for around 25k as well...but considering that the 2013 Rav4 is coming out in a few months, I'm a little dubious on my price.

And also, the salesman insisted that there isn't going to be a new model for the 2013 edition, that there is just going to be a few changes but no drastic look to the body, but after I imprudently bought the car, I went home and did a little research. I don't know if the videos and websites are true or not, but it does seem that there is a new model is coming out? With no tires on the back...

I'm content, but I don't want to live everyday wondering whether I was "deceived" or not.

The Toyota.com site calls the $22650 sticker for the FWD I4. Add transport. Add options, including floor mats. Add California tax and fees. https://www.dmv.ca.gov/FeeCalculator...VehicleForm.do which might be $2000 or so. Sounds near sticker, but taxes vary significantly according to your home address.

There are some who think that the redesign will be called a 2014 model. On the other hand, the first year of a new major design often has some design flaws. The 2006 had an unshielded plastic canister under the car that could get $1000 in damage driving through a big puddle. The spark coils had a shorter life than the improved versions from later years.

For my new base (no option) Sport V6 4WD I paid $29556.64 CDN plus applicable taxes (GST+QST+Quebec Tire recycling fees) for a total of $33,999.99 not including my $12,000 trade-in, actually an accommodation sale this way I saved the taxes on this amount. We pay about 15% in taxes where I live so it's worth to make and accommodation sale whenever possible.

Originally, I was thinking of getting the base V6 4WD model but for the price difference and Toyota Canada $4,000 discount, the Sport was worth every extra penny. I don't like the base cloth seats but I could have lived without the few bells and whistles the Sport. The Sport has a stiff suspension but that's the price to pay to have the interior I prefer!

2012 Sport V6 Classic Silver no option
1999 Lexus RX300 Pearl White base gone
1972 Corolla 1200 Yellow 4 speed manual long gone
Others too many to mention!

Just bought my 2012 Limited AWD V6 nav/roof/leather here in central oregon after looking at everything around. MSRP was 33,180. Consumer reports said the best price possible would be 31,500 so I took that to the dealer and paid 31,750.

There is a $750 cash incentive expiring tomorrow 11/5/12 that I just made it in on. Others might want to do the same. I was going to wait for a 2013 but I decided to get the V6 now while I can. There are not many V6's around so get 'em while ya can is my advice.

if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

And some other stuff the dealer threw in, clear guard on the door edges, nitrogen in the wheels, etc
$26,500.
However, they jacked me with $495 with processing...
Still great deal.

Base V6 FWD in So Cal $23,091

Just picked up a base V6 FWD with QW & CF packages (Value Pkg & floor mats) for $23,091 + tax + license. I really wanted the Tow Prep Pkg with bigger radiator & uprated alternator, but just couldn't find one so equipped. Will perform a conservative break-in until about 2500 miles, but acceleration with the 3.5L V6 is shocking, MUCH more responsive than our '98 3.0L V6 Camry or our '00 3.4L V6 4Runner. 5 speed auto is sweet, gear ratios are nicely spaced & engine only turning 2K RPM at a little over 70 MPH on the freeway. Last remaining 2012 V6 base models are getting scarce, and 0% financing ends in a week, so I didn't have time to do a lot of research on pricing. Anyone else bought a base V6 in California within the last few weeks? If so, what did you pay?
