I'm wanting to purchase a 2012 Prerunner, 2WD access cab, 4 cyl, automatic. None have been shipped into my state, and I'm unable to go out of state to purchase. None of my local dealers are interested in helping me except for one who said they "might" be able to do a dealer trade but that I might have a long wait. Do many dealers do "out of state trades," and if so, how much extra shuld I expect to pay?

Dealers trade all the time, no bid deal, that's how I got my 5-lug and I paid $200 over invoice.

My experience was such that I bought at a dealer in Fayetteville, AR and actually sourced the vehicle from Jackson, MS. Granted, I wound up purchasing from a dealer that was a part of a gigantic network of dealers (Penske).

Otherwise them finding the vehicle should not add extra value, it is just more of a hassle for them to call around and check. You can do it for yourself actually by simply going to each dealers site, saying they have this truck, and telling your dealer you would rather buy from them. This is how my girlfriend did it when she bought from a family dealership for her '11 Jeep Cherokee.

Edit: I should also say that she bought from Dallas, TX and sourced hers from Oklahoma City, OK.
