    Did anyone pay MSRP for their prime? we're about to head out to look @ at a couple. Is there room to negotiate down from MSRP?

    I believe that is for a cash offer.

    think you're right. would be built into lease and finance, perhaps in lower rate?

    I might have been the first Prius Prime purchase and was still able to negotiate. Received $100 off + $500 Toyota Incentive + black shifter applique.

    Supposedly a minimum of $400 off MSRP + $500 Toyota Incentive should be your starting point

    There is always room to negotiate, all depends where you go. Some dealers believe that above MSRP is the only option. I got a good chunk of change off of MSRP plus the rebate for my Prime.

    I'm not sure where you would have gotten that information, but per each manufacturer's website, the weights are as follows:

    2017 F-150 regular cab, 2WD, 6.5-ft bed, 3.5 V6: 4,051 lbs/2.7 Ecoboost 4,139 lbs
    2017 Silverado regular cab, 2WD, 6.5-ft bed, 4.3 V6: 4,510 lbs

    2017 F-150 crew cab, 4WD, 6.5-ft bed, 5.0 V8: 4,801 lbs
    2017 Silverado crew cab, 4WD, 6.5-ft bed, 5.3 V8: 5,444 lbs/6.0 V8 5,481 lbs

    There is more to negotiate than just the price of the car. For instance, there is a Toyota Platinum warranty (100k miles/7 years bumper to bumper). There are dealer add-ons, such as paint protection. There is the trade in value of your current vehicle. I am going to go to several dealers and see who can give me the best overall price. Maybe some will cut you a better deal on your trade or the extended warranty.

    Would you mind sharing details ?

    Amount off MSRP ?
    $500 Toyota credit ?
    Any port extras ?
    Trade-in ?
    Warranty purchase ?
    Doc fees, or other junk fees ?

    PM would be fine too.

    My MSRP was $30,863, the car came with a few extras that I was willing to live with.
    I was able to negotiate below this and I was given the Toyota rebate of $500 off, this rebate is an either/or cause you can choose their special financing instead of the rebate.
    $865 transportation fee was added and is part of my final MSRP
    I did not do trade in and even if I would have I would not let them know until final numbers are agreed upon for the price of the car.
    I did not purchase an extra or extended warranty for the car cause my credit union offers one with the loan if I want it. If you want the Toyota one you do not have to buy it at that moment and that is something else that can be negotiated.
    I had no other fees after this through the dealership I ended up going with, that I remember.

    Which trim did you buy (plus, advanced or premium)?

    Would you mind saying how much below the $30,863 you ended up paying ?

    Thanks!

    Not sure if it has already been posted here but I've heard that dealer's only get a profit margin of $800, so I wouldn't expect to get more than that off MSRP. I hear that the $800 is the same for all three trim levels as well. I do believe that the $500 rebate is separate, so best case would be $1300 off MSRP. This was coming from a Toyota salesperson whom I used to work with (before he became a Toyota salesperson). Not entirely sure if its true but figured I would share.

    Has anyone got their Prime for less than $1300 off MSRP??? If so, please also list the trim level.
