    Just got a quote from a dealer on a Limited. MSRP + $6500 for a protection package plus tint. What a time to be alive.

    $38,083 is the MSRP price.

    $34,465.00 Base
    $1,635.00 Limited Premium Package
    $495.00 Wind Chill Pearl
    $299.00 Carpet Mat Package
    $69.00 Bumper Appliqué
    $25.00 First-Aid Kit

    For $6,500 more I get:

    Door Edge Guards
    Door Cup Guards
    Front Bumper Film Protection
    Paint Protection
    Window Tint

    It’s amazing because I know at least the first four I can add directly on Toyota when building for like $1,114.00. And I can pretty much get the best window tint on the market for $500.00 to $600.00.

    For $2,000.00 I MIGHT consider it, but $6,500.00 is just laughable.

    Got the same old speech, “Well, if you don’t pay it, someone else will, so either pay up or move on.”

    Really wish Toyota would come down harder on their dealers about doing this kind of crap. Wonder how many customers the dealers end up pushing away to the competition.

    There are some dealers who will do MSRP. One possible way to find them is to go to toyota.com and search nearby inventory. Keep expanding the range filter from where you live until you find some listed for MSRP. Then call the dealer to confirm.

    Good chances are they have a queue and to get in queue you need to put a deposit down. It's usually refundable. But call them and find out.

    I have a dealer nearby who does MSRP. They have a queue. Their salesmen are quite annoying though because they are very pushy about wanting me to buy a (very overpriced) used car on their lot instead. They spent quite a while trying to discourage me from putting a deposit down on the new car. And they call / email me every few days to tell me about the latest used car that hit the lot.

    But will be worth in the end to get the car at MSRP.

    Personally I'm willing to pay maybe $1000 to skip ahead in line if the alternative is waiting another several months to get one at MSRP. The correct strategy with these dealers in my opinion is to simply put in your bid and tell them to call you when they are able to offer you that price. It doesn't have to be so antagonistic, dealers do tend to nag but at the same time they appreciate when customers are clear about what their goals and don't waste their time. If there really are other buyers who will pay $6000 over, it's really not reasonable to expect them to come down for you until they run out of those buyers.

    base on my daily driving of ~100 miles/day, if the prime is $3000 over the regular hev. I am not going to get the prime. plus, I live in the north. Now, I am just waiting for the pricing at the end next month. I hope dealers are still have prius on the lots at that time. finger crossed.

    Just be patient. There are lots of other vehicles on the market that appeal to Prius drivers, including several EVs. The Corolla Cross hybrid is expected in June, and the rav4 is going to be redesignd in 2024 for a 2025 model year. Rumors are it will be hybrid only. If half of this is true, there will be enough options in about a year to prevent people from paying a premium on the Prius.

    Hello all, I too have been offered the Prius Limited about $1500 to $3000 over MSRP.
    But today I have bought two 2023 Prius Limited at MSRP. I never bought a car at MSRP so it's kind of a hard pill to swallow.
    The dealer in Raleigh didn't mark up as like the one in Durham does.

    Each car for Cash was $38,805.79. but will need to wait until they come in stock.

    Inflation oh yes from 2008. Just for fun, and for details I bought a 1985 Corvette off the show room floor for $26,500.00 cash, how much are they now?

    Got another offer from a different dealer. This one came in at $50,000 before TTL, and includes even less extras. At least the other one that quoted me $44,500 before TTL had the Limited Premium Package. This one ONLY has the carpet mat package. Dealer said that this is what people are paying so they don’t have room to negotiate.

    It’s wild because we just got a Prius Prime 2022 Limited for just shy of $24,000 before TTL about one and a half years ago. That was because of rebates and credits of course, which are no longer applicable, but it still makes it really hard to buy another Prius when dealers are asking twice the price, and it’s not even a PRIME!!

    there's a facebook group called "New Toyota Deals", the admin and others post inventory daily if you're willing to travel to get it.
    As of right now, Prius are going for MSRP plus $500 broker fee. I think if you can wait maybe 1-2 months, they can drop to maybe $1k under MSRP.

    That's what I paid for my new XLE with a bunch of extras including fixed glass roof, 12.3 in. screen, all the liners and mud guards and all the other little stuff (I probably would not have gone for all these things but someone did not pick up their pre-ordered car so they sold it to me.)
