I'd like to buy a new Tacoma at some point in the near future, and I'm just looking for advice. What I want is pretty simple, a 2.7l 4x4 Access cab with limited slip and the convenience package (power locks/doors/etc.). That's it, no SR5, no other fancy options. According to Edmunds, invoice price for this configuration is $22,446. I'll probably go with a 5 yr loan either from my credit union, or from the dealer if it's a better rate. I've got a 97 BMW 328i to trade in that has a trade-in value of somewhere from $3500 - 4000, and I still owe $2700 on it.
My question is, is now a good time to buy? I'm looking to go the internet buying route, and I'm going to use information from carbuyingtips.com and fightingchance.com. Any other tips for buying new?
