    Through USAA car buying service, I got a quote on 2012 Prius Four (trim 4) base package for $27863.

    Is this a good price or could I negotiate a better deal at the dealer?

    Thanks.

    Here was the extent of my negotiating for my 2011 Prius 4.

    ME: Hey, I really love that black Prius over there.
    Dealer: Yep, it's nice. Just rolled in today and we'll have it sold within the week. Prius is about the only car on lot that we never mark down.

    Sounds good to me. Looks to be a little below invoice.

    I was able to get a better price on my Prius then what I was quoted from USAA but I was looking at a 2010 that was after the 2011 models were on the lot so the dealer was motivated. :D

    Hey there,

    I'm in the same boat looking for either a Prius 3 or 4 base. Here are the best quotes that I've gotten so far. I live in Silicon Valley and the best quote was from Magnusen's Toyota in Palo Alto.

    Pearl White
    $25,367 invoice
    -offer at $24,867.00

    Prius4
    available 3/19th
    27,900-invoice
    -$27,400.00 (offer)

    Let me know if you can do better! :)

    Depends on many things. Do you know the exact MSRP/Invoice for your car? It can vary depending on your color (white adds $200),
    any accessaries it has (in my area they mostly come with at least the basic carpet/mats pkg), destination charge and supply/demand for the prius in your area etc.

    I was just quoted $27,983 + TTL for a IV with only mats and cargo net. Also I was quoted $24,800 for a III and $1295 for adding aftermarket leather (Katzkin?). These are SoCal prices. Does anyone have the rough dealer invoice for a IV?

    This will be a third car so I'm not in a hurry; although the right deal could send me to the dealers asap. Should I wait until closer to month's end for a better deal? Any over/unders on future incentives? Hopefully this purchase will close better than my recent mattress purchase, where two days later my mattress was on sale for 1/2 off (damn you Sit and Sleep!) :mad:

    best advice I can give you is get #'s from several dealerships. I wanted to trade my wife's Benz for a prius V...one place said (after trade) like 9k, another place said $6,700. I asked the place that said 9k if they would beat $6,700 by $100 or so, and they didn't even believe me that $6,700 was for real.

    shop around. you never know.

    I haven't done enough research on a Prius IV, but you should def hit up a dealer. If dealers can't beat it, then you can always go back to it.

    Here's the breakdown in the NorCal area for a base Prius IV with carpet/mats. (I'd think it's the same in SoCal ?)

    MSRP(regular colors) = base + destination + mats pkg
    = 28,235 + 760 + 225
    = $29,220

    Invoice (regular colors) = 26,284 + 760 + 140
    = $27,184

    For Blizzard Pearl add $220 (MSRP) or $195 (Invoice)

    So Blizzard Pearl IV with carpet/mats only

    MSRP = $29,440
    Invoice = $27,379

    This is based on my research.

    Total price came to $28161.00 w/o title/registration/tax.

    Includes...

    That's $2000 something off MSRP. I was quoted $2200 and some change off MSRP on a MY12 Four order with whatever options & accessories I wanted. That's Minnesota March pricing which varies by a huge amount between stores.

    Hi,
    does the $27,390 include the $760 destination charge?

    thanks,
