Re: 2016 Prices paid
2016 Sienna XLE in Blizzard Pearl purchased today from Germain Toyota in Columbus, OH.
MSRP - $37,935 included XLE Navigation Package ($715.00),
Special Color ($395.00), Roof Rack Cross Bars
($185.00), and Carpet Floor Mats/Sill Protector
Paid - $32,000 plus $250 doc fee plus $30 title fee
The trade value of my '14 Silverado was more than the purchase price, so there was no sales tax assessed as Ohio gives full credit.
Financed for 60 months at zero interest through Toyota Credit.
I had about decided to buy an Odyssey EX-L and stopped at the Toyota store just to check out a Sienna. By happenstance, was greeted by the salesman who lost us a couple of months ago when my wife bought a new RAV4. This turned out to be the key to the deal as he was determined not to let it happen again.
Surprisingly, liked the Sienna better than the Odyssey. Dealer offered $34,000 for the truck - exactly my number and its fair trade value. Offered them $32,000 for the Sienna and they came back at $35,000 and change with talk about how that was their invoice, blah, blah, blah. Got up to leave and salesman "checked" again and then accepted my offer.
Based on limited research, I was skeptical that they would go for it, but they will, no doubt, make up for it re-selling the truck.
Am very pleased with the deal. For about a grand more than the price of the Odyssey, the Sienna has some welcome additional equipment including fog lights, navigation system, and rear parking sensors.
