    HB is the same on all trucks, no matter where it is shipped to.

    PPP's are illegal in most states. But certain banks can charge them if the loan is paid off in less than two or three months. It is a fee for you borrowing the money and them not making their interest/investment.

    It depends on the mods, but for the most part, no. In the end it is still a 2000 Tacoma with 23,xxx miles etc.

    Some mods actually lower the value, because you have narrowed the buying audience by changing the vehicle from the stock set up.

    Sometimes dealers give a better deal if you finance because of the deal with the banks and the fees received from the banks.

    Sometimes you have to finance in order to receive certain rebates. Go in, negotiate a deal with financing and then pay the car off with your cash on the second or third month.

    Because it is illegal for a dealership to show you a dealer invoice that is a fake. There are major fines. "Truth in Lending Act," prohibits that.

    Because the dealership makes crap on warranty work. They would rather charge standard rates and make money.

    You can buy an extended warranty from any Toyota Dealership. It will cost you more because you did not buy it on the original sales date.

    At least $5k. Seriously, it depends on the dealership, time of month you go in and if they put it on a lift, which unless you have a major piece of doo doo, they usually don't. They'll only do a walk around, maybe list the hood and drive it around the block.

    I'm not sure if this thread is still being used but I'm thinking about trading in my 2016 RWD Tacoma for a 4WD Tacoma. I just want to know if you have any tips, tricks, or any advice with negotiations to get the price down to what you want. I feel like I did ok with negotions the first time around but I think I could have gotten them to go down lower? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I got a tip. Don't do it. You will take a serious loss on your current ride.

    lol - Steve hasn't worked for the dealership for years now & is hardly ever on TW. Better off asking @Blackout14 - Joe is active and was working at a Toyota dealership within the recent past. :thumbsup:

    Yeah I'm still on the fence. I know I'm going to loose value if I decide to do it but the kbb on my current ride is still pretty good. I'm still deciding.

    Thanks for all the info I really appreciate it! I forgot about using autotrader, I used kbb and edmunds last time but I would like to have as much info as possible. I wasn't able to get them that low below invoice last time. If I decide to do it, I'll definitely be more flexible and just head elsewhere. Thanks again! :thumbsup:

    @Blackout14 how does the autotrader instant cash offer work? Do all dealerships honor it?

    I did it and it's offering 2.5k more than what a dealer quoted me yesterday. So do I show them the offer I got from autotrader? Also this dealership is not a autotrader certified.
