    After a friend offered to buy my 2005 prius, I needed a new car. I called all the local Los Angeles dealers looking for a 2015 PIP lease for 36 mo. and 12K miles per year. The best offer after multiple calls was $357/mo. (tax included) with 0$ at signing. Some of the dealers were even getting rude as I asked for any further discount.

    After seeing an add for South Bay Toyota (no affiliation!), I called and asked to speak to the internet sales manager. He quoted me a monthly payment of $308.00 (tax included) for 35 months of payments and 0$ out the door. They even had a sticker on the car. I arrived at 1:30pm and was driving home at 3:30 with the car.

    My only beef was that I had to wait an extra 20 min. when they went searching for the plug. Turns out it was stolen and they gave me a different one.

    I just applied for my $1500 cash back and cannot believe I got this amazing car with a sticker for so little money!

    I would check the trunk, by the spare tire, see if the plug is there

    Get your green HOV sticker if you want one as the deadline is coming

    Are you sure the $1500 rebate hasn't been applied to your lease price? On purchases, they give that to you on the spot. No applying

    Hi All!
    Yes I am super excited to drive it. I just charged it with the plug they pulled from another car they were selling (someone stole or misplaced the original). I charged fully in a couple of hours, but I will get to drive it to work tomorrow. The dealer had the green HOV sticker on when I purchased the car!!! I forgot that I could go in the car pool lane on the drive home. Will not forget again! As for the $1500, I filled the application on line at cleanenergy and they said a check is reserved for me and would be mailed to out once I sign and scan the application. I think it is a California deal?
    Thanks, Larry
