In 4x4, the truck does pretty good, but 2wd is really weak on the ice. Workman has driven a lot of full sized domestic pickups via work or has owned them, and the Tacoma's ABS and plastic bed make it the hardest truck to drive in extreme cold/ice conditions, in 2wd.

The offroad model with the locker option sold Workman on his Tacoma. The locker has gotten him out of very shitty situations about 4 times in the last 4 years, and therefore paid for itself, in Workman's opinion. Plus the locker is fun to play around with.

An SR5 model+ARB locker in the rear would be a pretty damn good choice as well.....
Dude WTF... The workman likes it ...

Then drive to the dealership, ask for the same sales manager and say "I'd like to order and finance this truck today, I'm going to 3 other dealerships to compare your price, is the absolute best price you can do?" Then drive to the other dealerships and see if they can beat the price - ask about finance rates, etc... Then tell them I'd like to put $X down and that I want the College Grad rebate as well. When they order it, do I sign the finance papers at that time and put the money down, or do I just put down a deposite?
Lack of required punctuation makes this hurt to read.
Decide what you want. Price it online. See what a dealer can do for you.
In my experience they were all about the same on a truck that needed to be ordered.

Don't discuss your down payment until you get a price.

Have you tried financing through Toyota? Just bought my 2013 Double cab Sport 4 days ago and got 0.9% through Toyota, my bank was 4.9%.

Hi,
I'd keep the cash in the bank (if you can keep your hands of it) and take all the cheap financing you can get. Yes you get next to nothing on interest on your savings but if you have an unforseen need you have ready access to the cash no need to take out a loan at most likely a higher rate than the vehicle loan. You can always pay extra on the loan if you want. Its also a good way to bolster your credit score by showing you are dependable over the long term making payments. Financing through the dealer sometimes gets you a better price as they get a cut on the financing. I financed both my Tacoma and Elantra Touring through the manufacturers finance at a much better rate than my bank or credit union. You can set up automatic payments or do it one line so no need to write and mail a check.

No advice on the Tacoma options. 4x4's have done nothing but get me into trouble so the PreRunner was the best choice for me.

Jim

you definitely want a locker if you don't want to scrape it up

without a locker, you can creep up a trail, but when you get stuck you often
have no option but to add some speed and attack it again....this may lead to a bang
or scrape (usually anything you hit in the underside at slow speeds will be minor,
truck love scrapes actually

with a locker, when you get stuck or stopped crawling at 1mph, you hit the locker [and wiggle
the truck just enough to engage it if it doesn't engage immediately] and just add
gas and see what the rear ends does....most times you just move forward, or mostly
the butt will wiggle and find grip. far less need to hit it with speed, lessening the chance
of banging into something

I can tell you that the ARB lockers I had front and rear on my Jeeps have been great, and cost a mere fraction of the OR package.

I'd tell you to go aftermarket and save all of that money - but I can understand that its nice to have everything warrantied.

It might not hurt to price out the options of the aftermarket.

Also, I owned three Subarus (One Impreza and two leggies). Car seats fit fine in mine, and it was a lot easier for small people to climb in and out of than the truck. Just offering up that option as well.

I just bought a 13' double cab 4x4 TRD OFFROAD two weeks ago loaded with the JBL/Navigation/entune package. I love it! At first I was going to finance through my bank at a 2.9% rate but i ended up going through Toyota at a 2% and they offered a free extended warranty for financing with them. Recieved a 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty and the first two year of maintenance free. I normally finance everything through my bank but that was a no-brainer.

Dude, keep your cash in the bank and through the right investments you can earn more interest on it than you will be paying on the truck loan. Also by going into a dealer with cash in hand usually doesn't get you a better deal becasue the dealer is going to get there money either way. In fact the dealership recieves money from Toyota financial by gettting you to finance with them and a lot of times they will take that off the sale price in order to get the price down and make a sale. Go at the end of the month and play hard ball.

Good LUCK with your upcoming purchase..

I think it's interesting how some are saying go with the sport if you are about the looks and go with the off-road if you're looking for traction ... I think the off-road looks better than the sport (not a fan of the scoop) - so in my opinion I got the best of both worlds

But like others have said - the off-road guys lean that way and the sport guys lean their way.

Get the brochure -
http://a230.g.akamai.net/7/230/2320/...ensed_ebro.pdf

Look at the packages - decide what you like and go for it - in the end you will be getting a great truck!

Welcome to the family

If you've decided on a specific configuration, you might still be able to find a 2012, which may save you some money on sale price, taxes, and/or insurance. Unless one of the minor changes between MY2012 and MY2013 is important to you, it's worth considering.

WIth that in mind, I paid $30,350 out-the-door for a 2012 DCSB OR with the Tow Package. If you want, I can post a photo of the window sticker later.

That would be great! I'm looking to get the TRD OR package with the JBL for $32k OTD I think (before adding leather). Plus I think I'm going to have the dealer add leather and heated seats and push for getting that done at dealer cost.

I'll dig it up for you.

I'll be very surprised if you can manage all of that for $32k. Dealers know they're in a strong position with Tacomas, which is why you rarely see much of a rebate, and resale value is so high. What does Edmunds think would be a fair price?

No, I think I did a poor job communicating there. $32k before the leather/heated seats. There is a dealership here that uses "True Price" and has the TRD OR with JBL for $31,500. I'm hoping to do a bit better than that as my understanding of "True Price" is an average selling price. For as many people but these trucks closer to sticker price, I'm hoping to be on the opposite side of that bell curve below average. What price do you guys think I should be looking for before the leather seats?

So total OTD I'd like to be close to $33,500 or so.
