    I'm in the market for a new Tacoma. I'd like to test drive one and was wondering if anyone has had good or bad experiences with any of these dealers: A1 Toyota, Toyota of Wallingford, Colonial Toyota, Toyota of Westport. Thanks

    I went to Greentree up in danbury, probably a ways out of your way, especially for service, my sister got her ravioli through stamford, i think she was pleased with them as well.

    I don't think you can go too wrong with any of the ones you've listed, especially for a test drive. when your ready to buy pit them against eachother and tell them that your calling other dealers to get the best price. i did that and mine was $500 over invoice.

    I only have experience at one of the 3 youre asking about, but Toyota of westport is good for service. Avoid greenwich and stamford for service unless youre getting trd stuff installed as their trd tech Jared is awesome and thorough. I shopped everywhere back in '10 and the best price i found was at prestige in ramsey nj. They were a full 1k less than stamford even tho i had bought my other truck from the same salesman 2 years earlier.

    definately shop around. i usually end up driving a couple hundred miles for my vehicles, but i pay on average 5% or more under invoice.

    I have my Taco TX-Pro on order from A-1 Toyota for seven weeks now, not exactly impressive pricing nor knowledge but they are close by and descent. Colonial T. was a buch of sharks for a long time, when I went there with my wife, we walked the lot and the showroom for quite some time with nobody approaching us, which seemed weird, once I spoke with a salesrep I found the "fixed pricing" to be too high plus they add some crap automatically to their cars which I did not want to buy.
    Toyota of Wallingford seemed to be good, and had a nice selection of cars. Westbrook T. were the only people that refused to give me pricing on the telephone.
