    Has anyone bought a new Taco (or any new car / truck) from Oregon, NV, or elsewhere then brought it into CA?

    How did it work?
    Was it more trouble than it was worth?

    And yes, it's a 50 state model.

    thanks!

    I'm asking about the method and associated headache if any, not the money.

    Dont know why Cal. is like that. Do they think the air in California stays over California?

    Exactly. Our legislators sold us out, embarrassing how easily the majority (who are dumb) sides with irrational representation and spending. I'd be living in Idaho if I wasn't from here originally.

    I'm holding back a long rant on our loser representatives right about now.

    I never have but I was going to buy an Xrunner from Utah, trucks are definitly cheaper out of state. I dont think it will be a headache at all if its a truck in good condition. Just make sure it can pass smog and all paperwork is up to date and legit.

    I just bought one from a dealership in Fl. they made me pay taxes there with the understanding that they would mail me a refund check upon registering it in California when I get there... not sure whether or not it's going to be a pain but i for sure saved a few bucks buying it outside of california as you would definitely pay top dallor in northern California for a Tacoma. I'll let you know if it's turns out to be a bummer. Cheers

    Nice! Thanks, let me know how it goes please! My primary concern is all the paperwork, and time spent at the DMV for this not ordinary procedure.

    Update. I purchased a Tacoma (new) from Oregon and so far so good.

    The dealer collected the CA sales tax based on the county I'm purchasing it in, and I'll receive my temporary registration by Fedex right about the same time the vehicle when it arrives by truck. When it gets here I'll have to smog it - which record of will go directly to the DMV, and I'll have a paper copy I financed 2/3'rds of it via Toyota Financial Services (TFS) so they'll be on the title until the loan is paid in full.

    Note: I did cheat some and used an auto broker called Professional Sales and Leasing in Redwood City, CA. He also got me a rate from TFS better than the "special" advertised 2.9 on 60mo.

    So thanks for those who gave advice, so far I'm happy.
