    Seems like a fair deal. It was probably a demo that one of the managers was driving around.

    What kind of financing did you get? That could take a fair deal and send it in either direction pretty quickly.

    I'd be turned off at the 5k miles used up on it. Work the price down, it's worth your effort.

    Lol yes it was a demo owners old car and he got a new land cruiser! :eek:

    Well see what happen was they were going to run my credit ,but showed up as no credit so we never made a deal... I need a co signer so I might go back and see if we can work something out if it is anything over 10% finance should I just walk out? Well the only thing I dont like about this truck is that it is silver I want a White TACO! Should I keep waiting until the right one comes my way or just go ahead and buy? I still have my old car and it runs fine I just want to upgrade I had this car for 4years now!

    Also that 0% finance for 36months the dealership was telling me they only do it on the tundras and camrys which sucks every dealership I went to today told me that Tacoma are probably the most best selling trucks and hold there resell value! It just sucks for me because I want one I just dont want to spend too much money on one ,but I still want a nice TRD sport/or SR5 and not a Base...

    At first salesman wanted $36k I told him there's no way that truck is going for $36k fully loaded with 5000 miles then I guess he knew I wasnt dumb and started being more reasonable right when I was leaving I told him if I bring a co signer will you knock it down to $25k he said no the best price he could give me was in the high $29k

    the 0%/36 financing is currently available on Tacoma...any dealer who tells you otherwise you should run from.

    btw, I find the price to be fair @ 29K...but if you don't want silver, don't buy it.

    10%? I'd see if they can do better.

    If a dealer offers zero % financing for a vehicle, that doesn't mean you'll get that. You'll have to qualify for it and having no and/or bad credit leaves that option out.

    To me, it sounds like you're a young guy... with no credit (?). You gotta steer yourself to a good financial credit standing by getting established with the credit companies.

    Apply for a credit card and maybe an in-house credit line at a store. Buy a TV or something like that and pay the minimum balance each month untill it's paid off.... DON'T overpay each month or pay the complete balance right away.... Credit companies HATE that (except AMEX ;)).

    Having NO credit is waaaaay better than having bad credit, so use the clean slate you've got and get established!

    Use your card (RESPONSIBLY) like I suggest for 9 mos. to a year and you'll be in a much better (credit) position to buy a vehicle then.... and maybe a house in a few years.

    Buy responsibly!

    Having no credit is not a bad thing. If you can save cash and pay in full that is by far the best way to buy a car. Don't buy into the myth that you must have a credit score to survive. Check out Dave Ramsey he can steer you in the right direction.

    For almost 30,000 thousand dollars I would wait for the car you want. I would be looking at a13 with that price. Know anyone in the military? Have them look for one on the usaa website. I got mine that way. It's a database that will search for your vehicle and give you a price. The usaa price not a dealer incentive. Dealer incentives come with by the way.

    Up here in N.Y. You couldn't touch a fully loaded truck for any thing under 36k. 5000 miles means nothing to them. If the trucks never been titled. They threw a dealer plate on it and put 5000 miles on it. They can sell it as new.

    ***UPDATE***

    Tell them you need to be at $25K, and they are at $29K, so get them to meet you in the middle at $27K (on the road). Always get on the road prices.

    Never heard that term "on the road prices" I will give that a try and see if meeting in the middle will work.
