I saw that a dealer in Santa Rosa was selling a used 2012 blizzard pear AND a used 2012 shoreline blue pearl for sale on craigslist for $36K each a couple weeks ago. They had under 100 mi each on them. I called and they confirmed that they were listed as used and therefore ineligible for either the Federal credit or CA rebate. Perhaps these were sold and then financing was denied to the buyers? I saw that explanation in another thread recently.


That's too bad, sorry to hear for new prospective buyers. Unless the price is closer to 30k, it'll be difficult to entice buyers to forgo the tax/rebates

I doubt it will be that hard. They only need one or two unwitting customers.

Just clicked on the "request sale price" link for the dealer in MA. I can't wait to see what their game is. Who knows, maybe it'll be a really good deal. I'll share the response.

Ive heard about dealers having to take the cars back in a couple cases. (i heard a person at my dealership in Fremont mention that). So its possible thats the source of the "used" Rav4s. I think thats also the source of the toyota document i had to sign that essentially said that I understand its a limited range vehicle and i have to charge it :-)

I got a call back, The salesman seemed unaware that you could get a new one significantly cheaper than he was asking for this one. He said he might be able to get it down to 44k, maybe even 43k. With a chuckle i said "I hope you like the way it looks on the lot, because it'll be there for a while at that price". I genuinely feel that EV shoppers are a far more educated breed of car shopper. I don't think people are just going to buy an EV (especially a 50k EV) without doing any type of research. Maybe someone will prove me wrong.

All they need is one buyer....

Called on this one again today, and it's still marinating on their lot. The salesperson said she'd talk to the owner and get back to me. I wonder how many months they'll let it sit there.

New listing in Washington State. The mileage on the listing says 15,797, but carfax says 2,011...not sure which is correct. No price on the ad...

Wow i dont know how these guys expect to sell a used vehicle at that price. Mine brand new was less than that out the door (after rebates and such). Whats more, its not like there isnt inventory. Maybe they're assuming people in Washington dont know people in California or something. Seems dumb.
