    I am looking to trade in my current car and scoop a 2011 Tacoma (DC SB 4x4 TRD Off-road)

    After some preliminary negotiating I am at $30k even for the truck (not including sales tax). The sticker on the truck is $31,864. I am confident I can get them down another $500.

    Does this seem like a decent deal? I know it's not extraordinary but I have enough trouble just finding these trucks in my area. So haggling is only going to get me so far.

    Would appreciate your thoughts/opinions.

    Thanks in advance.

    30 is what I paid for my 2010 back in December of 09.

    thanks for the reply...I'd like to think I've done pretty well getting them down from the $31,864 sticker

    My sticker was 32. Honestly I'm horrible at vehicle negotiations so I never get that great of a deal.

    During my two weeks of emailing dealers and getting quotes a month ago, I was specifically asking for out-the-door prices (including TT&L). I was consistently getting the best prices from the dealer I ultimately went with. Here are a few figures I still have (all are 4x4):

    Double Cab, TRD/OR, 6-Disc, Tow Package: $31282.36 out the door
    Access Cab, TRD/OR, (and JBL & Tow, I think): $30899.91 out the door
    Double Cab, SR5, 6-Disc, Tow Package: $30114.71 out the door

    What's your sales tax in Texas?

    I'll be trading in a vehicle so my sales tax won't be for the full price of the Tacoma which will save me a lot.

    Unless it has changed in the last few years, it should be 6.25 percent.

    Invoice for that truck is $29,182-...see if they'll go $200- over invoice @ $29,382-...they will still get their dealer hold-back, advertising fees, and all the other bullshit they don't deserve...I believe they are also giving $500- cash back on 2011 Tacomas, not sure about the TRD Off-Road model though...good luck!!

    2011 TRD Off Road Pre-Runner
    I live in Texas and bought a 2011 TRD DC/SB TRD Off-Road with the JBL system for $27650+TTL about 2 weeks ago. Sticker price was $31250 I think, maybe $30250. It's a pre-runner though, not sure if you're looking for a 4x4. I got it down by researching the invoice price and true market value and offered them right at true market value. I was emailing 4 different dealerships saying that the other guys had offered me $27700, which was a lie (sue me) and when I was offered $27650 I jumped on it.

    I'm hung up on this statement, and now you've got me wondering about something. I even went looked at my paperwork because of it (after all, I was fishing for out-the-door prices including tax, then put $9k down).

    Tell me if I'm wrong, or if it varies from state to state, but as far as I know, sales tax is figured on the final sales price of the vehicle before trade-in/down payment. At least that's what my paperwork is showing. I can't even remember how it was done on my previous vehicles.

    What's the interest rate? I just bought one, during toyotathon no money down and got 2.6%. I was arguing the price so they try to get you, by giving $500 dollars back and loosing the good interest rate. Its bogus, 2.6 up to like 12, and there is a Toyotathon twitter deal for $500 anyway. They came about three off the sticker and threw in the gold trd wheels. Still expensive though. The wheels get mounted on tuesday. Also if you do buy make sure you find the link to post toyotathon info on twitter to get a $500 dollar Toyota debit card. Good luck, and remember the ball is in your court the car industry is in the shitter, use multiple dealers against one another, and know they are all crooks!

    We didn't get as far as running my credit or anything so this was quoted at their standard 5.9 interest rate. Until I can get the price on the truck squared away I'm not even going to bring that up.

    I don't NEED to trade my current vehicle for the Tacoma so I will certainly be looking for the best deal for ME.
