Oakland Toyota : bayarea

RAV 4 with $40k dealer markup tacked on.  Not a good time to buy a car.

Well, it is the Rav 4 Prime with the XSE trim, so, you know... probably worth it.

My first thought was that this was a weird publicity stunt, but reading the comments, it seems this is an especially bad dealership. I wonder if that's a function of the lack of lot space in densely populated places like Oakland so people you only have legacy dealers on long-term leases and not a lot of choice.
