Unless things are different your way, a dealership will not sell you a brand new vehicle. (Thats the way it works here anyways) There are a couple ways around it, but that depends on what your salesman is willing to do.

Do you mean a US dealer won't sell him a vehicle because he's a canuck?

Yeah, that's how it works around here. We can't buy a brand new vehicle in the US, only used. One of the ways to get around it is for the dealership to drive it around the block and say it's "used". It could very well be different where he is at though.

Looking to buy a 2011 trd quad cab with 187 miles on it, and yes it is used because us Canadians cannot buy new from a dealer. Asking price is $29092. What would a dealer take for an offer? What does a brand new truck like this go for?

I bought my6 truck brand new from PA. You just have to find a dealer that is willing to do it.
I called a total of 3 dealers, the 3rd one said no problem. It is Toyota Corporate that tells the deaelrs that they can't do it. If the dealer is willing to ignore the rule, then it's no problem.

I found dealers in the States way more comptetive with the pricing then Canada (espicially if you don't tell them your from Canada until after you have a quote in hand).

When I bought my truck new it cost me $25,577.00 CND plus tax at the border. Came to just under $30 K CND sitting in my driveway.

Make sure you get a copy of the owenership to fax 72 hours ahead and a recall clearance letter BEFORE any money exchanges hands.
