2012 Purchase Price Check

I just discovered this forum, so I hope I'm posting in the right place. I'm scheduled to go to my local dealer tomorrow to purchase a 2012 double cab. My top requirements are the TRD Sport Package, Entune display navigation and the V6 tow package. I would prefer the long bed, but apparently they are very hard to come by with the 3 options I want. The dealer has one coming in this week or next, but not in my top color choice. They can get one in my top color choice in the short bed. So here are the 2 quotes I have. I'd like some feedback on how the offers compare.

Long bed - $30,750: EJ, FE, PY, RL, TO, DT, CF, F1, P2, I2, G1
Display Audio with Navigation, Entune
50 State Emissions
TRD Sport Package
Daytime Running Lights
V6 Tow Package
Window Tint
Premium Carpet Mat Set w/Door Sill Protectors
VIP Sales Follow-Up
Vehicle Shield Package
PDS w/Texas State Inspection
Vehicle Fueling (4Gal.)

Short bed - $30,100: EJ, FE, PY, RL, TO, CF, R2, F1, I1, G1
Display Audio with Navigation, Entune
50 State Emissions
TRD Sport Package
Daytime Running Lights
V6 Tow Package
Premium Carpet Mat Set w/Door Sill Protectors
Running Boards
VIP Sales Follow-Up

Well the sticker on the short bed is $31,748 and the long bed is $32,327, so they are taking about $1,600 off the sticker. The display navigation with entune is about $1900 option.

Always investigate the invoice price and use that as your reference.
They make 3 percent profit on invoice price.

I paid 28500 out the door for mY 2011

Don't get stuff you can add yourself for less, like tube steps
And I would go with vinyl instead of the carpet

I did the overstock.com search, and it came up with a target price of $30,548 for the long bed, but it didn't have the window tint and vehicle shield package available to select. The MSRP it listed was 31,715.

Would I be able to have the premium carpet mat sex w/door sill protectors removed?

Also, does anyone have opinion on if the vehilce shield package is worth it, or is it just fluff? It includes lusterizing sealant, fabric guard, and rental car assistance.

No it's not worth it - it cost about $130-175 For tint And 1000 for Katz skin Leather

As for floor mats weather techs ftw

Like I said be for don't over pay on stuff you can add for a 1/4 of the price the dealers sell them for
You gotta play hard ball with them and stick to your price

Posting your location might help; pricing is a bit regional. Use TrueCar/Overstock as suggested.

If TrueCar/Overstock do not do it for you, make sure you check a few dealerships outside of your immediate area. For example, it might be that Houston or Beaumont has a substantially higher or lower price.

Once you get an idea regarding pricing, call and ask for the internet sales manager. He/she works on volume rather than commission so they want to move trucks and can do so at a better price.

Try to get a deal worked out by the end of the month; Toyota dealers are always very motivated at month end. If you can find a truck close enough to what you want on a dealer's lot, then expect a better deal, especially in the next couple of days. If you are picky about color and insist on less common option combinations (like me), then you might have to wait longer or pay a little more.

Don't get too worked up over what other people paid. Pricing is very regional. Sure, you might be able to get the truck from San Diego for $500 under invoice but the transport costs could be $700 to your location so the numbers might not make sense. Somebody said that the dealers make 3% when they sell at invoice so, if accurate, at $800-900 under invoice and the dealer merely breaks even. The dealers do have overhead to cover.

I looked throughout the West and it seems like invoice minus about $0-300 was, generally, what I was looking at for the specific truck I was looking for.

Finally, watch out for dealer handling fees. In California they are capped at something like $55. Go to Colorado and they will quote you a much better price but then they add in $400-500 in dealer handling. Just ask for the out-the-door price exclusive of taxes and registration so you can compare offers.
