    Just wondering if any of you have received any buy back phone calls from your dealership?
    I just got a call from a sales rep @ toyota of san bernardino (where i originally purchased the truck new) and they said they want to buy my truck back and to bring it in for an appraisal. He was kind of personal and knew all of my info(remaining payments,interest rate,and original salesman) so it makes me think he actually put in some research and it wasn't a random "come in and buy a new 2010 call"

    he was stating that he could get me in a new 2010 4x4 for the same payment and blah blah blah...

    anyways i have agreed to bring my truck in @ 4pm. we will see what happens.

    anyone ever receive a call like this?

    They don't want your truck, they want to sell you a new one. They will probably wholesale your truck off after lowballing you on it.

    Yep, I get that crap from my dealer about every 3 months. I get one from Honda on the wife's van too. They love Taco's, easy for them to mark up and make $ on. Might be the same payment, but new principal :). They leave that part out ;).

    I just got a letter in the mail from my dealer saying pretty much the exact same thing. They told me they would give me 20k trade in for my truck, thats to good to be true.

    Yeah, got the mailers too. Problem is....my truck is mine and they no can have it!....at any price they'd be willin to pay. Might trade them even for a tundra trd dc 4x4 already beefed up a bit like they plop down in the showrooms to give ya wood before you look at the sticker price. Anything less and they can FO, I owe nothing! They also wanted the wife's RAV4 pretty bad too, them and the Nissan dealership close by. Mostly, they wanna win at your expense...........

    Just got one this morning. I was screening the call, but it didn't come from the dealership I purchased it from. Go figure.

    Just a sales gimmick.
    not only do they get a sale from you - AGAIN
    they get a third sale from re-selling your truck - AGAIN
