I am located in South Florida and looking to buy a Corolla LE before the end of the year. Didn't see any posts or discussions regarding prices paid so am reaching out for help from the community to post their deals.

2017 Corolla LE ECO

Paid 17400 otd for an LE ECO in Los Angeles, CA. Incidentally, I got a quote for an LE (no ECO), a couple weeks before for 17550 as best offer. There aren't many LE ECO's available, for whatever reason customers are mostly going for the LE model.
Just maybe could have done slightly better if I pressed the issue more. Next best offers where around 18K, slightly less or more, others were considerably more.

Shop around, right now Toyota has good promotions going on, their sales have slowed and they are eager to keep their #1 place.

The best offer i have so far is $17,300 OTD which includes Carpet mats and Toyoguard Platinum.

What is the difference the LE and the LE Eco? Did your car have any options?

2017 Corolla LE
16" wheels
Engine: 1.8 liter 4 cyl., VVT-i - 132hp @ 6000 rpm, 128 ft. lb. @ 4000 rpm (torque)
Emissions: ULEV-II (this may be a CA thing, I don't know)
Gas Mileage: 28/36/32 (city, highway, average)

LE ECO
15" wheels
Engine: 1.8 liter 4 cyl., Valvematic - 140 hp @ 6100 rpm, 126 lb. ft. @ 4000 rpm
Emissions: CA LEV3 (cleaner)
Gas Mileage: 30/40/34
Rear Spoiler

Above is all standard equipment. I didn't get any extras, came with carpets. The extra mileage on the ECO will pay for itself in a few years and depending on gas prices, if you put a lot miles on it. I'm basing this on the Toyota listed prices which is about 400 extra for the ECO.
The engine has a few additional parts to get the extra mileage and power, hopefully it will be as reliable. You can do a search to read up on it if you like. The reviews I've seen have been positive. This is not a new technology been around sometime. I believe Toyota has used it on other models for a few years now.

I got the car at Hamer Toyota in Mission Hills in the Valley, of the dealers I called, I found North Hollywood, Oxnard and Carson the ones with the best quotes and most willing to deal as I recall right now

Let us know how what you guys get. This is helpful to others.

Toyota.com has brochures and statistics on the various models.

Reliable it has been for me. Got one of the first one here (Canada) a little more than 3 years ago. Beside a "service campaign" to update the Valvematic's firmware (apparently, some would go into limp mode under specific conditions - never happened to me), absolutely trouble free.
With great mileage (30/50, average almost 40) at least with my type of driving, but not hyper-miling.
Didn't buy for mpg, but because of the combination of equipment for price (our models are different in Canada). Valvematic (electronic control of valve opening) has been out since 2007.
Eco also come with with some aero gimmick, including a deck spoiler.

I guess that it is decent deal. But when you have to buy from a SET dealer, they're making more $ off of you from the Toyoguard and paint protection package crap. Of course, the incentives offset them, but it would still make me want to check out something else because of the way SET does business.

cooljay,

Seems like a good fair price in line with what I was finding.

I am pretty sure some of the items you list as options are standard on all LE's. There is a nice brochure on Toyota.com that lists all standard and optional equipment.

The thing that caught my attention is the "6 gallons of gas"

For future reference to others ask for a full tank of gas. I got one without having to ask for it, which frankly surprised me.

The subsequent Toyota questionnaire survey I received asks if you got a full tank of gas with car, which leads me to believe they want dealers to provide it. No biggie, but might as well get it.

The items that i listed are not standard the LE's , if you look at Toyota.com each item is listed as an option. Anyway just wanted to post what i paid so that the others can gauge the market price if they are looking to buy a LE. Good deal or not doesn't really matter to me now since the deal is done and the car is already been bought. Did not post in this forum to get accolades on the deal i made but to help others navigate the market.

The dealership gave me a full tank of gas since i believe that is standard , didn't have to ask for it.

2018 Corolla LE purchased July 2018

With free Mats
Toyota Incentives: $1500
They have 2019s on the lot and were probably trying to sell off their 2018s
16,455 + tax, title, registration

Without cash incentives, I assume this car would be 17955 + TTL.
I wouldn't pay 18k for a rolla LE, I would just get a Civic for ~18.3 to 18.5k
