#1013 of 1138 Best Price On An '09 Off Road Double Cab 4x4?
Aug 02, 2009 (6:01 pm)
It seems like peoples OTD price is quite differing so I feel slightly lost. Im heading in tomorrow to look at a Tacoma that I have been considering purchasing for a few weeks:
2009 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 4x4 Off-Road
(OC) Off-Road Package (no JBL)
(DZ) Deluxe Audio
(TO) Towing Package
(Z1) Floor Mats?
(RL) Daytime RLights
The dealership is a "Best Price" dealership and they are asking $28.2k. MSRP is $31,334. Ive never negotiated with a "Best Price" dealer.
I dont have a VIN, but the vehicle is in MN. Any suggestions about what I should aim for in pricing would be greatly appreciated! Ive done the TMV thing, but it seems lately many people are doing even better than that! Any suggestions or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
#1014 of 1138 Had An Interesting Experience...

Well...walked into my local dealer today (Best price dealer...been test driving, etc. already) Double checked and test drove the exact Tacoma I wanted to buy, sat down and got everything out on the table, showed them the Edmunds TMV report and got out my checkbook and gave them the "here is what Ive found to be a fair price, Im ready to drive away in that truck right now."...and got scoffed at.
"We have never heard of Edmunds."
"How do we know its credible?"
"Nobody gets those kinds of prices."
"You wont find that anywhere."
"We would be losing money on the vehicle."
"If you can get that price somewhere else, let me know so I can get one!"
"Nobody negotiates like this, but we can help you."
Every line in the book.
"Do some more research and education and let me know what you find."
Do you know how many hours Ive put into websites like this? This isnt the first car Ive purchased. I was insulted. So I walked. I thought for sure they would stop me...but they didnt. Bum deal. Local dealer that I really would like to support, but I may be forced to go to a competitor away from home and give them my business for a fair price.
What did I miss lol?

Well for  you can play several dealers against themselves, read and forget the constant e-mail requests for dealership invites to test drive make FALSE competitive bids on your behalf. .
USE YOUR IMAGINATION.... FOR EXAMPLE I played 1 dealer e-mailing several  salesmen within the same building and saved over $450 on the final offer. FOR ME $450 is alot of cash for a little spare time. I never looked back. THE GAME IS ...They already know how low they can go, It's up to you to get them as near to it as possible. If not then some salesman is eating steak dinners that you paid for ! MULTI E MAIL ADDRESSES IS ONLY A TOOL, and if used right will save you $$$$ UNETHICAL>>> I THINK NOT !
WHEN YOU BUY A CAR/TRUCK YOU ARE IN A WAR WITH SALESMEN !
DO YOUR HOMEWORK AND WALK OUT OF A DEALERSHP WITH A SMILE , KNOWING THAT YOU WON THE WAR

Hang tight...for some reason last month I remember the new rebates werent released until a few short days into the month for some reason. There were a few days there where I though the local $1500 was gone, and then poof there it was again. Not sure if this is normal, but I would think they would keep some incentives out to help move the 09s...that is if the 10s are on their way soon.
Who knows. Im in the same boat...determined to buy, but will be waiting now until more incentives hit.

Exactly, I work 3 blocks from work so I could walk or ride my bike in the meantime. If there isn't a promotion in August I will wait it out to September to see if anything shakes free.
