The hybrid version is upon us. Dealers are getting their allotments with some already spoken for. I think there's enough of an inventory difference that a hybrid only thread for prices paid is a good idea. The location and packages where you bought it is probably even more important now that it seems like Toyota is restricting packages and color combos based on location going by the website configurator.

I haven't got a price quote on my order yet. On my Tacoma a couple years ago I paid about $500 over invoice so I was hoping to get about the same deal. Looks like Oscar got one for about $300 over invoice? That seems good to me.

Thanks for sharing Oscar. I have a Costco price quote from a dealer in Bristol, CT with the EXACT same configuration (except for the color, I prefer silver) who is working to swap with another dealer. However, my sales price is $35,997 ($262 more than you) but my doc fee is $598 which puts my out the door price $764.50 higher than your price. I'd love to connect with your dealer and salesman to negotiate a similar deal.

Can you send me a direct message? Thanks

This is why in 30 years of driving here I still have not purchased a vehicle from a CT dealer. NYS caps it at $75. And even with the built-in profit in CT, I've still found they give much less on the actual vehicle pricing.

I'll DM you my contact in a few. Good luck!

First dealer didn't want to give more than $500 off MSRP until I was walking out, then went to $1200 off (which was still $1000 above the invoice on that particular vehicle, IIRC - it was configured a bit differently than the one I put the deposit on). Just be prepared for a lot of "they're in such high demand, they are selling as soon as they arrive on the lot, so I can't discount it off sticker". Yeah, they are selling right away, but that's because the dealerships are getting one vehicle at a time. Most of the more reputable dealers I've talked to expect that by the end of this month they will be on lots in much greater quantities.

The Costco program gives an MSRP of $40,225, which is the same MSRP from the dealer.

The dealer price on my vehicle is $37,399 Costco lists their price as $37,707, a difference of $308.

What kind of warranty or maintenance package are you guys getting?
Nothing for me beyond the included 2-year ToyotaCare. Years ago I got burned on a VW extended warranty which paid exactly zero dollars when our 2006 Jetta GLI ignition coils started crapping the bed at 60,000 miles.

I'm looking to get a RAV4 hybrid Limited and the other day I was thinking about this myself. I usually don't op for an extended warranty when I purchase my vehicles. But this being my first hybrid, I wanted to ask people who has had hybrid vehicles before whether it was a good idea to get extended warranty for a hybrid vehicle? I see from Toyota's website (Canada) that the hybrid system is warranty for 8 years/160,000 km. Based on my own driving pattern, I'll hit 8 years before going past 160,000 km. So what does extended warranty cover with respect to the hybrid system? Would there be any needs to replace the battery system at around the 8-10 year mark that would justify getting the extended warranty?

I'm driving a 10 year old Prius with 95,000 miles, out of warranty for the past 2 years. It's been the most trouble free vehicle I've ever owned. Get a quote on an extended warranty, then put the money in a CD paying 2.5 to 3%. In the unlikely event that you do have a problem after 8 years, that money would likely cover it. If no problems, have a big party!

Bottom line, there is a big profit built into extended warranty. Not worth it for such a reliable vehicle.

Batteries usually last 250,000 km or more, sometimes much more.

This is info for Toyota's US extended warranty. Maybe Toyota Canada has something similar on their financial services site

https://www.toyotafinancial.com/us/en/vehicle_protection_plan/new_vehicle.html

It basically looks like everything but the actual battery itself is covered. Go figure, it's probably the single most expensive part of the hybrid system.
