    Said listed for 32,713 and would sell for 31,448 (before fees and taxes). It also had some type of mp3 radio add on and mats. This really sounds high. Anyone else bought this particular config for less? Perhaps the reason for price is I wanted a color that is not common. This is making the Sr5 towing package access cab I found for 26,900 seem like a really good deal - Dang, I could add the shocks, aftermarket seats, inverter, and skid plates to bring it up to TRD standards and still come out ahead (I think).

    Its very high, but it's a 2010, if you wanted a deal you should have bought a 2009 a couple months ago or wait until mid 2010 when they are making deals again.

    You can find some decent prices around depending on where you are on the 2010s but u won't get anything near the price you'll get next year.

    Probably had the 6-disc changer and all weather mats.

    I got my 2009 double cab trd sport 4x4 for 27,700 out the door (with tax/title/license/fee)

    msrp was 31,669

    seems high to me...

    Although that was this past June. You'll always pay more when you get one right after the model year comes out...

    I wouldn't do it personally, but I'm cheap...

    Check out the Costco or Sams Club auto-buying program. They'll hook you up with your local Toyota rep and quote you a price below invoice. I used the Costco version to get my 09 DC last November and got a good deal. When I shopped the quote around to other dealerships, they couldn't come close to matching.

    There are dealership out there that would sell whatever they have for a few $$ over invoice. My sticker was $31,029 or something like that. 2009 DC 4x4 manual TRD OR JBL. Invoice is $28,229 and I got it for $28,300 with lojack. Then minus the $1K rebate so $27.3K plus tax and license. I bought it at the beginning of 2009.

    I don't know where you are but the big dealerships will sell for just about invoice. Talk to the fleet managers.

    it is absolute SHIT!!!!
    i got the run around with them for months. dealers would not call me back and the lady at their corporate office (she contacted me after i complained many times about not being helped) ketp on promising me that so-and-so would help me, but no one ever did. it was a complete waste of my time. i had better results just contacting the internet sales offices of various dealers myself.

    Thanks,
    I did find a AC TRD sport with towing for 28,300 but I think I am convinced I want the Off Road version for the skid plates, etc., although this will be a mostly on-road vehicle for me.

    I believe it will be hard to find '09 trd off road version. I believe all of '09 gone by now, I believe. Same thing happened to me last August and I realized all of '09 trd sport and offroad sold out. They was supposed to hold '09 offroad but ended up sold to somebody else when I called and show up on the same day.
    So they order me 2010 DC Trd offroadwith JBL/six changer/bluetooth, backup camera. Argue and working really hard with salesman and managers. Owner overheard my agruement and told them to give me a deal for 29,500.

    I did find a dealer that would order one for 29,070 (before tax & fees). A little better but still too high. May not be able to do any better.

    That is because invoice isn't dealer cost - when you pay invoice you are paying a good penny on the vehicle

    When will people catch on to this ?

    You'd had bragging rights if you paid 27500 + - 200 on that .

    make sure when you compare prices, you compare everything including installed options and accessories. the prices some people mention may be lower, but will contain fewer options or are not 4x4, msrp is msrp. The one I got has msrp of $32249. has xm satellite and trd floor mats, 4x4 trd or package with towing. I used costco program and got $2000 off msrp.I also have the $1000 off for college graduate. and since I bought in 2009, I get to deduct the sales tax. after the sale, you get a $50 voucher after answering a survery which I used to buy a box of toyota oil filter.
