    what is the difference between $300. off msrp and $400. below invoice? iow, how much did you pay for your car? there is a new pricing thread you may want to offer advice in.

    Costco invoice in my area, SoCal, is $31,776 plus $865 destination. This is an advanced trim, so the MSRP is $33,965. So, this person got a pretty good deal.

    Does the 1k rebate apply to Costco, too? Thanks.

    if so, might be the first person here with a better deal than msrp minus 1k rebate. seems a bit unkind to me to post stuff like this in dianne's thread. if you got a great deal post it in the pricing thread with dealer and details.

    It would have. However, at the time $500 was the rebate that was being offered. The dealer said it was rebate or toyoya financing...not both. So I took the rebate and ised my own financing to get 1.84 percent. So the national deal now is better than what I got.

    toyota does not put the 4500 towards the lease program. it sucks.

    I did some math:

    Assuming selling the prime @ the 36 month mark, therefore the fed tax credit amount to $125 per month for 36 months

    The financed price is 580 monthly($31000 msrp plus tax and fee), so it is truely 580-125 = $455 a month for 36 months

    After 3 years the owed loan will be 580x12x2 = $13,920. If i sell the prime @ 13920, i will make 4500 dollar. If i sell the prime @ 9420 (13920-4500), then i essentially lose all 4500 tax credit. So selling the prime anything above the $9420 mark, i will make money.

    To lease the price is about $475 a month for 36 month and not have to deal with reselling the car. Man how i wish toyota would raise the residual value by $4500 lol


    the incoming trump administration is environmentally hostile tho...

    I am not following your reasoning. It appears to be missing carrying charges. It is impossible to parse out the tax credit without knowing the interest rates, capex, loan term and residual.

    My approach has been to normalize two lease rates of the same duration and presumed apr and residual. So e.g the Toyota Yaris has this offer, which is $9014 (monthly cumulative plus down payment) to lease a $15,150 msrp car.

    Your Prime would then cost 9014 * (31000/15149) for the lease if the EV tax credit was not included and the other terms were the same.

    In actual practice Toyota moves cars by lease by manipulating the residual, so this calculation is only informative when two cars are compared with similar residual fractions. That information is provided in the details of any lease offer as a 'purchase at end of lease' price. E.g, if the msrp is $100 and the end of lease purchase cost is $60, the residual is 60% and the depreciation is 40%.
