I stopped by a dealer on the way home from out of state and noticed they had a black TRD-Off rd double cab. I've made a deal already on one near my house but wanted to stop and "look" at this one.
I had my cam with me so i snapped these 2 pics of the paint. The one I am going to pick up (most likely) does have tiny chips here and there and there is a "white" scratch on the door but it doesn't bother me much. But after seeing these paint defects I am wondering how bad the paint is gonna chip away etc... on mine?
Is this acceptable for a new 2009 model on the lot? Can you try to get them to come down even more because of these defects? I tried with the black one near me and they would not budge saying "this is acceptable" and the salesman even went to show me another Taco on the lot with some minor chips and said, "take it up with corporate" Wow, i mean if you were to say buy a Mercedes E63 AMG (my brother just bought one) and you saw this? No way would this fly with ANYONE. Is this just poor maintenance on the dealers part? If so then I think they should discount it more...
So I'm wondering, what's the deal? Is this just going to get worse? Can you get more of a discount? Or is it just "deal with it"?
