Need some advice for 2018 Corolla SE

Looking for a Corolla for the in laws....and it's not beige. Tried unhaggle and sent out a few emails and got a response from a dealer in the GTA. Can you tell me if this is reasonable or can I get a better price....

2018 Corolla SE CVT - $25 300.00 tax in.

2018 Corolla SE CVT Upgrade package - $26 670.00 tax in.

Dealer stated he went 2.5 over invoice and I haven't been through this process in decades. Just need some opinions.

Thanks in advance.

$25,300 /1.13 = $22,389 / 1.025 = $21,842 (this is just a very rough estimate)

Seems reasonable enough based on several dealerships.

26.6k seems like a rip off for an engine older than moses, sloppy transmission and torsion beam rear suspension. 25k for a car in 2018 with drum brakes LOL. FLAME ON

You really don't want a 2018 Corolla at this point

drum brakes are actually really good and long lasting ... if you need to stop once ... :p

who cares! about the engine being old they want something tried and true not something like a 2.0l turbo pushing 550hp ... seems expensive OP for 25.5k for a corolla though ...

Congrats on choosing the Corolla.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Speak to Geoff @ Erin Park, Good guy to deal with (no pressure) and probably give you a better deal than 2.5% over invoice.

Do we know if the Corolla is getting a revamp in 2019? If so, and if your in laws can wait, it might be good to purchase then.

What car would you suggest to him that costs $20,000 new before freight/pdi and tax that has the same level of equipment and standard safety features in this class?
