    Hey, I'm moving from Hawaii to Norcal this summer and plan on getting a new Tacoma. I've always bought used cars/trucks where the pricing is somewhat speculative and can vary based on a infinite amount of factors. So, here's my question... I know exactly what I want. A 2010 V6 4x4 double cab long bed with the TRD sport package. (wish it came with the offroad package but I really need the LB)

    Could you guys give me a low and a high price? as in a best realistic deal and also a "don't pay anymore than this or you're getting ripped off price" I wish I could totally bypass the stealership, but since its a new truck I would like to have a game plan before talking to a salesman.

    I've checked out edmunds.com, carsdirect.com and a few other websites claiming to have accurate invoice prices but what do you guys think? Any other websites I'm missing that might be helpful?

    i have a 2010 dc 4x4 off road. edmonds real pricing was $200 more than what i paid for mine. $28950. my father-in-law is good friends with the sales manager so i know i gave them a very minimal amount of money.

    I posted this on another thread... if you want the best price, and to know you got the best price and not play the negotiating game, this is how you buy a car:

    1. Go to edmunds.com (yes, there's other websites as well, this is just the one I use) and get the information regarding how much the dealer is paying (it will be within $100 or so). NEVER buy a car without doing this. Information is your friend.

    2. Check on edmunds.com for the current, if any, incentives being offered.

    Now, only you can decide what a good deal is - meaning how much the vehicle is being marked up. Much of it is timing, supply/demand and how patient you're willing to be. When I was looking at a tacoma, they were scarce for the one i wanted, so i was only able to get it down to $500 over. any other model and i could've gotten it for $100 over.

    Now - this is how you do it (I have a lot of experience in this business) - you find out if the dealer has what you want (internet, swing by the dealership - (which I don't do), etc.). I can often find what I want by checking their inventory online. Call and ask for the fleet manager (don't do this until you know exactly what you want - they don't have time to play the game). Tell him what you want, can he get it and how much over invoice is it? They will tell you it's $X over, take it or leave it. They've all even faxed me their invoice, which I ask for. NEVER talk to a salesperson first, they will want in on the deal and potentially complicate it. At this point, you're making and educated decision.

    Now, some may point out that dealerships get holdbacks, etc. You'll generally never get that, don't even bother. IF you follow this method, you'll be getting a great deal and know it, not hope.


    Good luck!

    Recently purchased a 2010 access cab 4X4. I looked at Edmunds, Kbb and also tried Costco but there price was about $400 over invoice. Found a website that I felt gave me a more accurate picture on invoice pricing an it also gives you an idea what other are paying. It's www.truecar.com. Took it to the dealer and it worked well for me

    I just got my tacoma last week. Finally its over. I know it sucks finding the one you want and getting the right price. But, shop around is the best thing I can tell you.

    They are already hard to find (namely the 4x4), and April onwards its going to get worst. The incentives are going to drop and the prices are going to go up.

Proud new owner of a silver tacoma.

    Thanks everyone for the info! Thats more or less what I was thinking too, just under 30K loaded.

    You think the dealerships are going to start drying up begining in April? I'm not planning on buying until late August when I move. I've heard you can "order" a taco if you're willing to wait a few months for delivery but don't know the details. could be an option... I definantly don't want to wait until the 2011 model

    When I was shopping around. You could find a Prerunner fairly easy as opposed to the more sought after 4x4. Toyota did the incentives deal to instill confidence etc. in their vehicles. With incentives they made out pretty good with sales. The incentives I had ended in March. So, with this I'm just saying you aren't going to get as good of a deal. But, since you said you are going to be buying in August.. who knows. Especially since that's around the time they offer next years models.

    I paid 19,991 out the door which included license fees for my 4x2 SR5 4 cylinder. The sales man told me that because they only had a couple of days left in the month they dropped the price for me without much hassle in order to make their quota. I used USAAs buying service to get prices and then played one dealer against the other. Sorry, you have to be a member to use it.

    I'm one of the lucky ones that did get to dig into dealer holdback. Their cost for my truck was $21532, and I got it $200 below that number. :cool: The thing is to make sure that you have every bit of information available that you can get your mitts on.

    Right now is a good time to push hard to get every penny you can work out of them due to the negative press. As another poster said, his buying right at the 11th hour of making quota helped him as well.

    Just do your research, and go in with plenty of info on the truck you want. As others said edmunds is a great site. I also did a price check with carsdirect, and USAA.

    The only thing they weaseled me on was the 1000 rebate... they tried to tell me they were including that in the discount price (should have told them I want that price and the rebate), but I was on 30 hours without sleep and didn't really react.
