    Hey guys, in the last 40 days, I went to this Dealer 3 times to buy the Long bed Tacoma TRD Sport 4x4, dealer has not being flexible and the sore point has been my trade, and offcourse they don't want to give anything for it.
    They called me yesterday to see if I am still in the market. This is about the same truck that has been sitting there for 2 month!!
    I know I want a double cab, long bed TRD Sport but I am surprised that it has been sitting in the lot for so long.... I am sure it is one of the reasons they are willing to deal now, since the 2011 comes out in the end of July.
    I need some cool heads opinion!!!
    The offer is a fair one, it would be great if I did not have a trade, but I don, and I have been trying to sell my Mazda3 for the last 30 days with no luck...
    I am so afraid of getting this deal and kick my self in the ass for not waiting on 2011 !!! Even thought, reports show that the new 2011 Tacoma will be over $1K more than 2010.
    PLEASE HELP!! :crazy::crazy:

    Try a different dealer? I'd go to at least three, see what kind of offers you can get then see how low they'll go...doesn't hurt to pit themselves against each other, it's your money and they'll work to get it. Don't mention your trade-in until after finalized a deal for the new vehicle. I'd say get a 2010 instead of waiting for the 11, from what I've read there's not much that's changing...good luck

    What would Carmax give you for your Mazda 3? Use that as a mental, base-point for trade-in value and then work up from that.

    Also, remember that you only pay tax on the difference between the value of each vehicle when trading in...that amounts to a savings when compared to selling outright and then buying the vehicle.

    As far as '10 vs '11, I like the 10's grill better....that drawing of the 11's grill will have to grow on me. :D

    Today is the last day of the fiscal year and month. It may be worth it to deal with them. Go in before they close and see what happens.

    See build thread.
    The 2011s come with a different grill and I think uphill assist. I have the 2011 Tacoma brochure somewhere in my house. Id take the deal on the 2010 if you get what you want for your Mazda.
