    Sales tax is based off of the balance after the trade in. This varies state to state.

    If you're patient you can do a little better. Start low and hold your ground..negotiate like hell. I've purchased quite a few cars through the years. If you start low and hold your ground. They'll come down on their price. After the salesman runs back and forth with new numbers for you a few time. He'll ask you to work with him and come up on your price. Then you budge like 100-200. Slowly work your way up. If you have to, get up and act like you're going to leave.

    I bought my 2010 DC LB TRD Sports for 28,500 earlier this year. They started out asking 33,800. I offered them 27,000 to start. At the end they were stuck on 28,900. I told them 28,500 or no deal and that it, I got up and started walking away, and the sales manager came out and stopped me at the door and told me to have a seat, he'll get the paperwork going for 28,500.

    I don't think that's a bad deal at all. I mean, you're getting basically the best Taco they make (stock that is)

    I wouldn't pay more than 29,500 honestly. I'm soon to be in the market once my credit and debt is where I want it (not that its bad). Go to www.truecars.com and check out comparables

    In OH I was able to get a 2011 - 4DW - Tow Pkg - V6 - TRD Offroad for $26,700 after the $500 rebate. This worked out to 2.8% over dealer cost or about four grand under sticker. I usually buy my vehicles using a 'reverse' auction service like http://www.carwoo.com. Of course, you can do your own reverse auction and save the fee if you'd like. Use some other resource like http://www.carbuyingtips.com and download their blank offer spreadsheet. Once you get close to a price, take the completed sheet and show it to all the dealers in your area. Someone will bite.. always worked for me.

    Do you have a personal experience you would like to share that makes you feel this way...

    ...or are you in the "all businessmen are rich & evil and have no right to earn a profit on their multi million dollar investment" camp?

    Or maybe you believe those in business are there only to provide jobs and health insurance to the masses? LoL

    I financed it at 2.9%. I could of paid cash for it, but I'm young and don't have any credit. I plan to make the payments for a year and pay it off.

    Work on the out the door price I'd try and get them out the door for 30k or lower. I'm not good at negotiating either. I think I paid a little under 29k out the door for my 2009 4x4 Sport access cab. Paid cash.

    I have made the decision that after further reading on here I'm going to look into getting a sport over the off road

    so I'm glad I continued my lurking

    2011 TRD off-road DC SB w/JBL
    5100s, black valance
    I paid $30,847 for a 2011 OR DC with JBL.

    MSRP was $32,624. The variable in my numbers was the trade-in.

    They gave me top dollar trade-in for my car initially, but I called my salesman back and gave him an OTD price I was willing to pay with my trade. It amounted to around $1400.00 less than the original offer.

    My gut tells me that $2500.00 below MSRP (if not a little more below) may get you a deal.

    Go to Edmunds.com and price one out to get dealer cost.

    If you have already done that and I didn't see it in the thread, my bad :eek:

    Good luck...

    I got my 2011 Double Cab 4x SR5 (non sport non TRD,) for 200 under real invoice. Pay the $15 and go to Consumerreports.com it'll tell you exactly what the dealership paid, what each option costs them and what their minimal hold back is. The min hold back is a little off on CR (a little low) but I was under 30k out the door with my truck and I'm pretty sure it MSRP'ed for almost 31k.

    Good luck.
