I doubt they only make $300 on each car When I sold cars for Nissan I use to say the same thing! The best way to find out what the dealer paid is to ask them for the invoice price sheet. Oh and don't forget to ask them about a little thing called "hold back" it's extra money that they will never tell you about. I always feel that a fair deal is to offer them $500 over invoice if you' re not one to haggle.multarnc said:I just bought a TC. I bought a Celica GTS about 2 weeks before, and they couldn't even give me a loyalty incentive. I didn't get much for my trade-in either. But I guess it's good, considering they only make like 300 bucks on the car. What you get for the money is unbelievable. I paid about 200 in processing fees, so it wasn't that bad.
Scion tC is 100% made in Japan? Wow, that's better than the Lexus 430! LS430 is 95% Japan.Sportivo Concepts said:All tCs, will cost the same no matter what dealer you go to anywhere in the US. As some mentioned it is called "Pure Pricing" and it has been in Japan for a while now with the WiLL models and some others, while in some parts of Canada Toyota of Canada does sales certain models on an regional Average.
You will not be able to talk the price down on any Scion unless it is a used one (Yes I have seen some used xBs and Xas). Toyota really isn't making much off of the Scions because:
1) The US Gov is shafting them on import fees and duties and such since all Scions are made in Japan.
2) The only extra things you are paying for is stuff like rims up to 19s and optional stuff like subs, mood lighting and other stuff to custimse the car to your liking
That's not really true. I believe they have to stick to the price the trade in guy sets. But, if you let them know what you need to make the deal BEFORE the trade in guy assesses your car you have a chance. I know for sure because I was offered 1600 at stealership A and then went down the road, let them know I needed 4K before they even looked at it and got 4K for it from dealership B.ScionicXTC said:Same thing goes for trading in a vehicle when buying a Scion. They have to go strictly by black book prices, so you're much better off selling to a private party, or going someplace like CarMax & taking the check... I've seen Scion sales people recommend that actually
dont forget the good old active-military discount....which depending on the dealership and model is between $500-$1200Firesquare said:Pure pricing is like saturns approach for easier car buying, you see the sticker price and the potions with the car, you pay that price. No dealer mark up and such and such.
the only "discount" you may get is form a Student discount if you graduated and your school is on the qualified list for 500 off the sticker
