Best Toyota dealership in Fl?

I am looking to buy a 2013 4x4 trd sport double cab tacoma and want to know where people have found the best deals. I'm willing to travel a fair distance if it means saving a decent amount of money. I live in Daytona Beach but go to college in Gainesville so central and north FL are preferred.

Thank you for your time!

I grew up in Gainesville lived there for 15 years. Gatorland Toyota is my pick. I've been to a few dealers around the area and they just don't compare. I've got a couple of buddies who work as techs there also. Deff a great group of guys. I've bought 2 trucks there and my family has purchased a hand full of vehicles there. Awesome experiances both times. The service advisor I always have used is named Gene. And Mike Bueno is the tech who always worked on my trucks.

Thank you for the reply! I see their advertisements around town. I'll definitely shoot them an email.

I've decided I am going to email most of the dealers in the region and try to see what the cheapest price I can get for the truck. I emailed Deluca a while ago but they didn't want to give me a price over email which bothered me. I would hate to drive to the dealership and then get told some b.s. price.

Ask your co workers and fam who they use. Ive have had nothing but bad luck at dealers. the service is like sales .. no longer trust them.. If its warranty work, thats OK. All you need is a good ASE person and you are good to go.

Drove from Orlando to Ocala to buy my truck from these guys. Bought it sight unseen. Next Tacoma will be from them as well. They will not loose a deal over price.

Service wise in CFL, I go to Toyota of Orlando on Vineland. The service advisors are super friendly. After my free service runs out, I plan on working on my own truck.

Edit:
At Toyota of Orlando getting my rear drums replaced under the TSB.
If you have a 2011-12 with really bad squeal coming from the rear brakes, this TSB will apply for you. New shoes and drums.

Our Nephew got a nice loaded leftover 011 4 runner in Dec.. The niece also got a loaded Highlander from Deluca. Good to deal with as far as we go. They were lower then all the O Town dealers,,, There was no push push or what will it take to put you in this baby today. I will not put up with push push sale's peeps. I only tell them one time we want to look around get lost for now go stand in the shade Ill call you If I need you.

Do you happen to know the TSB number? Also, what were the symptoms and why replace drums also.

Thanks

Supposedly they had to redesign the rear brakes due to possible squealing. I can't complain, I got new drums and brakes at 20k miles. #T-SB-0236-12

Might be out of your way but Earl Stewart in Palm Beach had no dealer fees and as long as service is there I get free tires and battery for the life of the truck

This is where I bought my 11 from...Exellent deal, and people. They have an Internet department and all, so you could get an out the door price without ever going in.

Yeah man to be honest it was the smoothest deal I have ever had at a dealer, went up to test drive on a Monday night, drove off the lot like an hour and a half later, brought my father in law with me (he had a 2011) and he couldn't believe it lol

Earl Stewart is where I bought mine too. No comparison in south Fl compared to these guys. No gimmicks and they actually treat you like a person.

fellow ACR and Gator here, or i guess not really anymore, but lived there for over 20 years, used to love gatorland acura when they were around, but havent' had much experience with gatorland toyota. I personally found the car sales in gainesville to be terrible, better was ocala, and even better was tampa. My buddy just went to roundtree in lake city for a better deal on his '13 taco. I think gainesville prices are insulting with what used to be labeled "market adjustment" or now "additional dealer profit"

Just bought mine from Deluca in Ocala. Researched around like you are doing and found a guy named Steve McCoy who had good reviews. Great guy to work with and would buy from him again.

I only have good things to say about them,,, Large dealers in O town only care about the $$ or think you are suppose to kiss their ass.. When I was there I saw 3 tags from Orange co in the service line as well.
