My dealer first told me a couple of months ago that because the vehicle is so hot, they were only offering $500 below MSRP through the Costco deal. After I told them that I'd rather go through carsdirect.com if that's all they were offering, they came back with $500 over invoice. They're supposed to have a Costco members only price sheet but I have yet to see one.
I had a long discussion with CostCo about this. The pricing can vary based on region, so one region might have different pricing from another. I've seen the CostCo Toyota price sheet for the Southern California region. The price for the Rav4 was $500 above invoice. However, as of six weeks ago, the V6 version was not covered under the program due to its high demand and low supply. Both CostCo and the dealer confirmed that the car was specifically excluded from the program. The only other car I remember being excluded on the CostCo pricing sheet was the Prius.
Thanks for the help. Apian your comments seem to make good sense.
It appeared that both dealers looked at the Costco list and looked at V6 Rav. The $500 deal was a couple weeks ago. The $1200 was just yesterday.

Hello, just joined because tomorrow I am going to look at a 2007 rav4 limited v6, 140K miles, one owner. I am nervous because I have been reading on this forum today and have learned about transmission and magnetic coupler problems with this model. What is your advice on how to avoid a lemon?
Last night I go ito install some mud flaps. The car has been parked int eh garage for a couple of hours. Turn the car "on" but do not start the engine. Grab the steering wheel and crank the front wheels to one side so that I can reach the inner fender. Turn the car off and remove the key. A...
