    When you bought your 2nd gen taco, how much were you able to negotiate off the sticker price? Please list the MSRP on the car, and what you paid before TTL, and if you'd like, how much it was after TTL.

    Trying to get an idea how much I can expect a dealer to budge if I try hard.

    I don't remember the sticker but I negotiated my 07 access cab down to 21,xxx. tried getting it lower even but they wouldn't budge even after I left the sales office.

    Thats pretty depressing. They wouldn't drop down the price of the security stuff and the oil changes, instead of giving you that?

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention, from a Toyota Dealer. There's a 2010 Double Cab Prerunner SR5 for 25.7K. I'm wondering what I should settle for to can leave the dealership OTD, with TTL.

    How do you start negotiating? I mean, if they don't budge, how do you get them to? What did you do?

    Does that actually work? I'd assume they'd let you walk...

    Damn dude. That's awesome! I'm definitely going to try that. If I can leave with 26K or 27K out the door, I'd be a happy camper. But 25 out the door would be the best! Should I take some nissan ads with me? There's a double cab nissan for 20K

    lol. that's awesome. Only problem is I'm too young for anyone to take me seriously. I need my parents with me, cause i'm only 17 :( I'm probably going to get even more ripped off.

    The internet price I got was actually really good, so I didn't have to negotiate down much.

    I spent 6 months starting in April '09 going back and forth over Internet quotes with about 15 dealers. It was a gazillion emails but worth it. I narrowed it down to 2 dealers then waited until Cash for Clunkers was over in October and they were desperate for new sales. I ended up getting $4k+ off [on a vehicle they had to order no less] and a really good trade-in price for my 12-year-old Frontier. You have to do the legwork and play them off against one another or you will pay through the nose. "And that's all I have to say about that." :D

    Just paid $3K UNDER invoice on a 2010 Dbl Cab long bed w/TRD Sport(not JBL), tow package, 6 disk changer. That price included $1500 in college grad and military rebates (only available when you finance through toyota).

    Some companies like USAA and Overstock.com use Zag.com to help buyers find the lowest pre-negotiated price in their area. Atlanta, GA has the lowest price in the nation on Tacoma's right now through USAA (aka zag).

    Just go to ZAG.com, spec out your ride, and receive a guaranteed price instantly. Print your certificate and take it to the specified dealer. If they don't have the exact car you are looking for, they will honor the price relative to invoice of the vehicle they do have in stock, or you may be able to talk them into finding or ordering what you want. Advertised price excludes any dealer fees, TTL or whatever.

    Good luck!

    I got a used 1st Gen from a Toyota Dealership in 08, so they just wanted to get rid of it... I got it for 3k under KBB.

    I bounced a couple dealerships in my area off each other, rooted out those who wouldn't negotiate quickly. Sticker for my 2010 Dbl cab Off Road was ~32k. All done, I paid 28k+ttl for it, plus got them to give me higher than BB value for my trade.

    I was about 2100 off sticker. I went through the Costco program. You just deal with the fleet dealer. Pretty painless. As far as negotiating, data is your best friend. Research prices and what people are paying via the internet. Get a few internet quotes and take them in to the dealer and make them beat that price. Don't get emotional, just be calm. Getting all excited just works against you. Have your financing pre approved but don't tell them that. If they think they are going to write the loan they will give you some slack. When it comes time for the loan tell them the rate you got and tell them they can write the loan if they can beat the rate you got. If they are rude or pressure you just pick up your stuff and leave. There are about 6 Toyota dealers in my area so I just moved on when someone was being a dick. After I bought my truck I sent the GM from one dealer an email explaining all the reasons I didn't buy from them mentioning the sales dick by name.

    If you're serious about buying in the LA area, let me know. I helped someone buy recently and found a good dealership that didn't play games.... I don't want to waste my time though unless you're 100% ready to go.

    btw, don't negotiate down, better to negotiate up from their cost...

    MSRP $29,000something. Negotiated for Invoice. Ended up paying $26,000something.

    I had a Dodge Ram as a trade-in (so to speak). I tried selling that thing online for months without any interest. I had it originally listed for $22,000 and had pushed the price down to $19,000. I took it to the dealer just to see what they'd give me for it in trade and I was expecting a low-ball price.
    They gave me my asking price of $19,000 for the Dodge. I drove the tacoma home that day.... saved me a boatload in sales taxes also. It was a cash sale & I can't complain.
