    Please list city, state, and name of the dealership also and tell of your experiance with them.
    I got mine from Phil Meador Toyota in Pocatello Idaho, I would definatily go back and do business with them again. They are a 5 star dealership for a reason! They did not try and Jew me out of money on the trade in, or try and rush me into a purchase. Well trained and polite salespeople who know their stuff, they answered all of my many questions about the Tacoma. I would recommend this dealership to anyone.

    First of all, fuck you ^^^

    Second, Abijian Toyota in Walla Walla, WA.
    They don't like to give much for trades, but the personnel are very nice to work with. Would probably get a better price in a larger city, but I was ready to buy and didn't want to drive all over the state to save a few hundred bucks.

    Technically Judaism is a religion, but it's closely enough associated with Hebrew ancestry to also be considered sort of an ethnicity.

    Now to lighten the mood, let's all have a laugh:

    I was straight with them, and they were straight with me. I brought them a spreadsheet of dealer cost to put the truck on their lot, told them I had a number fair to both of us (made them some profit without pulling my pants down) in my mind, and if they could get to it, the sale was theirs.

    They got to it. Got $500 below it actually.

    Stadium Toyoa Tampa Fl. Wonderful dealership. Didn't rush me when I was looking helped me with financing. My front diff blew up and they replaced it under the extended warranty for the $50 deductable. Think it was 3k in parts and labor (somewhere around there) gave me a rental car (comped it) and I got a phone call everyday from them giving me updates. Will definetly go back. The Courtesy Toyota in Brandon FL however refused to even look at my truck, said I didn't have a warranty when I had it in hand in front of the guy, and wanted to charge me $100 to "look at it" horrible experience from them and will never go back. Said they don't get paid to do warranty work so whats it worth to him... what a prick. But stadium toyota in tampa very nice.

    I had a great experience. They did not offer me enough for my trade, so they allowed me to advertise my old truck in the paper, but let me drive the new truck until the old one was sold! My Tacoma was new, but someone bought it, his check bounced after they had it registered in his name, so they had to sell it to me as a used vehicle (18 miles on the clock). I ended up paying $19k for a $26k sticker truck. We started negotiating at $23k. These guys really worked with me without being too pushy.

    I got mine from Findlay Toyota in Henderson, Nevada. I would definetly go back to them. While the salesmen are all kind of pushy, they're just doing their jobs. Service department is great.

    HUGE dealership that could easily play the "if you don't buy it, someone else will" attitude. But they are very low key, personable and went over what I wanted for my trade-in plus went way below msrp. They had about 20 '11s on the lot 3 weeks ago and were dealing to make room for the '12s.
    One more coolness....they up'd the warranty to 7yr/100,00mile.

    Pleasant expierience with these guys. They didn't try to sell me stuff I didn't want or need and were patient with me. I've bought 2 Tacomas from them....my 1st Gen and the 2005 I have now.
