on the surface it seems ok, but I'd call around to other dealers and tell them you got a quote of $17000 and if they can beat it.
I'm assuming that doesn't include tax, so that could add 1000-1500 to the price, depending on where you live. It might not be possible, but definitely try to get a bit lower. There's no harm in pushing a bit; they won't refuse to take your money.
My rule of thumb is to always have 3 dealerships fighting over my sale. I've found that one of my local-ish dealers will drop straight to their bottom, then I have the other two fight it out from there.
I don't think its a bad price, especially if they have 09 i touring's on the lot. Remember, its a new car, so they'll be wanting to get more for it. With that said, some of the dealerships are lowering their prices to around 5-700 above invoice already...
You guys are right. I got 4 dealers to compete back and forth and so far the best deal for the 2010 iTouring Manual is $16,800 with destination charge. I have to now haggle all those dopey fees but I think I am finally getting somewhere. Of course, once I sent out emails to the other dealers about the best offer so far they want to talk again. We will see....
