Still have not seen one in person yet but interested in a purchase. Located in GA, looking for a dealer that will sell at or VERY close to MSRP and not a $2k or more markup with a $1k doc fee. Willing to drive to get a deal. Does anyone know of someone that is selling at decent prices? Probably looking at an L or LE.

TIA

Regarding markup… I know this won’t help you south of our border but from what I have experienced here in Canada the rules are very different. Canadian laws requires dealers to sell at the MSRP so shopping around between dealers for the best price is redundant, you choose the dealer who will get you your car the quickest. Good luck.

Yup, that would make things MUCH easier. I have not purchased locally for years because the "doc fee" is $900 for many local dealers even before all the craziness. I can drive a few hours and find no fees or fees more like $100. It varies by state, when I left CA if was a law that fees were $25, think it is $80 now. Here in GA it feels like the wild west, anyone can charge anything, we are one of the highest states in US.

Thanks for the note, I will keep searching.

When you said MSRP, does that mean the price is excluding option equipment+ delivery charge?
I saw some dealers have different MSRPs than the others for the same vehicles (same color + option equipment). That means dealers can make their own sticker prices.
Thanks!

Me too!! Never seen one in person nor driven. My local dealer in Baltimore is selling it at sticker price with a $500 Toyota rebate. They are also offering me an extraordinary amount of money for my 2018 Subaru with 66K miles. That’s what started me on this journey. Vehicle is being built on 4/28. Can hardly wait!!

I accept FACTORY installed equipment as an added expense to the base price and is totaled to bring up the MSRP to a retail price. I do not necessarily want a stripped down version but if all I can get is a base model, no biggie.

What I do NOT agree with is dealer added crap like paint protection, window etching, lifetime oil changes, window tint, and any other add ons that raise the price for a dealer that is usually 70% or more in pure profit designed to take advantage of the buyer. .

Not sure where you live in Canada, but I live in Toronto and the dealers here have no issue whatsoever tacking an extra 10-20% on new cars. I bought a new Volvo in Feb and feel lucky to have purchased it for MSRP. I saw some dealers advertising a lesser equipped version for $10k more.
