Iíve seen it at dealership, looks horrible to me. Especially the wheel wells. The older one looks better.

With the RAV4 being so popular and having a redesign, how much of a reasonable discount do you think dealers will give on the new 19's early in the year? I have my eye on an XLE at $31K at one of my local dealers. I'm in no hurry, but just curious about how much reasonable haggling space I might have. Thanks.

Since they just came out, I would say very little. I would wait a few months until dealers have a bunch on the lot.

Yeah, I agree. I'm waiting for some new springtime releases to look at anyway, including the hybrid version of the RAV4. I'm also willing to go to other cities in NC, especially Raleigh, whose dealerships tend to have dozens of each make on their lots. I'm in no hurry, but I'm like to replace my 15 year old car sometime this year. I made sure to take pics and screen shots of this particular RAV4, since it's the exact one I'm interested in, should I choose to buy one.

It looks like I'll be buying another one because my youngest daughter needs my car. It's a 2014 and it's less than 30,000 miles. Good deal for her!

I still hate that dashboard screen, but it looks like the new one has buttons in addition to the touchscreen which I like better.

Seems like Toyota is playing games with the RAV4. They are still pushing the 2018ís might as well wait for 2020ís I got tired of the games and bought something else. The RAV doesnít even have real leather. Like the Lexus they are using softex. A vinyl in other words. Good deals abound. Look for Toyota dealers to charge above MSRP.

It has the Convenience Package and the Weather Package.

I've set up an appointment to meet them on Friday. Do you think I can do better?

That is one heck of a deal from a brand new just released vehicle. My local dealer won't come off msrp right now.

I see you're Eastern NC, as am I. Don't know which town you live in. I'm in Greenville, whose Toyota dealership's internet discount is $500 for the 2019 RAV4. Wilmington is discounting $750. Raleigh is discounting between $900 to $1400. I haven't tried any direct negotiating yet, as I'm waiting until Spring to actively shop, so those advertised offers are just starting points.

In addition to expressing interest in specific models of competing brands (which I honestly have), I intend to ask dealerships to compete against their own brand from neighboring towns. Don't want to go crazy with it, trying to negotiate with a dozen dealerships, but 3 or 4 might do the trick.

You're off to a great start. They may agree to knock a little more off, but probably not a lot more. Perhaps they'll agree to waive or lower certain fees - pay attention for those at contract signing time.

I'm going to test drive it tomorrow afternoon. We'll see if the offer is legit. I have a feeling I'll like the car, but hate the dealership. From the Yelp reviews, it appears they don't have a very good reputation.
