    I'm about to buy a 2007 Tacoma. From now until Sept. 5th, Toyota is offering it's "Lots on the Lot" promotion. Do you think it would be wise to buy now, or wait until after Sept. 5th in hopes of an even better deal?

    Thanks!

    Wait till after...they always have these sales events throughout the year making you think it's their best deal ever, but really the best deal is at the end of the year when they got to clear out the old inventory.

    Right on. If you are not picky about colour, you should be able to get a pretty good deal towards year end. A good deal means a discount equivalent to one calendar year's worth of depreciation plus a few free options/extras. :thumbsup:

    My only worry is that they will run out of 2007s. When I spoke with the salesman about color, he stated "It might be hard to find blue, but we definitely have silver." (I want blue or silver :D)

    Does that sound like they are going to run out?

    well as stated, if you're not picky, you don't have anything to worry about. if you want a ride with specific configs then you just have to sit and pray that they have one to your needs when the time comes to buy. You never know, it's a hit or miss.

    Try to access the Toyota nation wide inventory database. (Don't ask me how) This would tell you what they have on hand and where. This way, you'd know when to make your move. You could also get a clear picture of inventory by visiting 2 different dealerships and asking if they could source your colour and how much procrastination time you actually have.

    Remember, if you buy a 2007 at 2007 prices, you have not gained anything. You might as well buy a 2008. Compare the price difference first.

    I wanted a black 4dr sport. They could not find an 07 in the South east. I went with and 08 and lost the $500 rebate.

    cdgreentn: I wanted a black 4dr off-road and when i built it on toyotas website they showed that there were only 5 in the whole southeast. the dealer i bought from had to trade a truck to a dealer in another state to get mine. It can be hard finding exactly what you're looking for.

    Go to build your Toyota after you go through getting everthing you wanted they will show you dealers in the area that you can check on. That is why at the start they ask Zip Code. If you know the names of dealers in you area just go to Google put in a name and pick new inventory, then Tacoma and scroll down through the list. You will see what is on their lots

    if you wait chances are you won't get the color/option combo you want. I faced that problem last year and wound up not buying an '06 instead waited till this year to buy an 07 in the color i wanted. I waited until November '06 to buy an '06 last year and all they had in the entire Vegas valley was white and radiant red. colors i didn't want. and they were finished building '06s. So, I was SOL for waiting so long. yeah, they were offering a great deal to unload them, but it wasn't the color i wanted.
