You should take note that 1995-2000 Tacomas have an acknowledged frame-rust problem. Trucks in this group are subject to annual inspection by a dealer. If the frame of the Tacoma you're considering rusts through, the owner of the truck at the time the program was announced is entitled to the prevailing "excellent condition" price of Kelley Blue Book multiplied by 1.5. Subsequent owners (of which you would be) are only entitled to the refund of the purchase price... in your case, $3550.

In the Twin Cities area, I've got cash in hand, no trade, and the dealer gives me the pricing song and dance of $500 above invoice on a 2010 Tacoma Crew Cab (Std box) w/TRD Sport Extra Value Package (MSRP - $30,669/Invoice $28,474.84 +$500 = $28,974.84)
Any thoughts? I'm just not convinced the invoice number, I'm sure the dealer is holding back on Toyota incentives.

I'm searching for a Double Cab Tacoma (2010). Would it be better to wait awhile into 2010 for a good deal? I'm new at this. I'm the kinda person that radiate "sucker-coming" as I pass through the Dealership doors. So any advice is well worth it. Thank you.

Do your homework..get invoice prices for entire vehicle to include options. Send out numerous internet requests for quotes. Evaluate your trade. If during the process they dont give you what you want on the trade, as for a tax break difference to be applied toward vehicle. Prepare to negotiate. Dont let the sales person control the situation. Let them know of other prices and put the pressure on them. Know what you want your note to be and stick with it.
Bottom line, if you want the truck and they want to sell you the truck, you will WIN. You may learn that you could had done better, and that they made money off of you...but they supposed to anyway.

"Do your homework.. get invoice prices for entire vehicle to include options. Send out numerous internet requests for quotes"
Thats exactly what I did about a year ago. I started by finding Taco's for sale on the internet by doing a 100 mile radius search and emailed the internet sales office asking for the best price. The 09's were just coming out and were selling pretty good or they were not stocking a lot of them on there lots so I had limited luck on those. I found a brand new left over 08 Double cab TRD about 100 miles away and started emailing back and fourth with him for weeks until he finally accepted my offer of $5000.00 under sticker. Now that was before C4C and all the Obama help so at the time they were really slow. As it turns out it was even a better deal because Toyota has had some really bad issues to deal with on the 09s (transmission etc) I always talk out the door price because you will be surpprised at how low all there fees will get when you talk OTD plus they can not add any fees that the finance guy says "everyone knows about" once you go to pick up the truck and pay for it.

$27100... is that with a trade in? What dealership were you dealing with? Is that a 4x4? We are looking and need all the help we can get. That's an awesome deal!

As I turge through this and search for a 2010 Taco. My question: some dealerships have this "BEST PRICE" statement. I feel like thats what I have to pay when I approach the dealership. They don't seem to want to budge and deal. What do I do?
