Jul 10, 2006 (5:49 pm)
I got my 2002 Tacoma Prerunner SR5 Double Cab v6 last week from keys toyota in Van nuys california. It saw it on edmunds listed at 17888 with 38k miles on it. i went down checked it out. was in great condition with running boards and roof rack added.
After about 2-3 hours of "haggling" we finally paid 15500 before tax and license. total out the door of about 16980 or so.
I'm looking for a camper shell perhaps snug fit. any ideas ?

I'll be buying a 2006 Tacoma access cab. I'd like to know what people are paying in this area. The quote i'm receiving is about $1000 more than Edmunds TMV.
Dealer invoice of about $25,300 and thats the lowest they are selling it to me. I'm even paying cash and i cant get close to TMV. Maybe i just need to check another dealer.

Which dealer did you get this from? That is highway robbery, you should own that truck after 5 years with those numbers!

My brother just picked up a 2006 Tacoma, 08/06 build date, 2wd reg cab base (i mean really base, just add a/c and floormats, crank windows bench seat) for $300 over invoice, $35 doc and $9 "lien release" fee (BS I know, but $9?) at Bob Bridge in Renton,WA. Their invoice appeared to be about $200 more than Edmunds, so call it $500 over if you want, but the final price was right at Edmunds TMV.
Straight deal from start to finish, no games, soft sell on gap ins. and ext. warranty. 7:30pm to 9:00pm on Sunday night from drive in to drive out w/his first new truck.

The best thing for you to do is to call the "owner" of the vehicle, i.e. the entity you're leasing from. Ask them for the payoff number. IOW, how much money you have to fork over for them to send you the title so you can assume ownership. Don't be surprised if it's well above $20.
May be Toyota Financial, but probably someone else. It's in your paper work.
Do NOT call the dealer, they're no longer involved in any way, but I guarantee, they'll tell you to "come on down".
If you keep making the lease payments, your payments + residual will total ~$41. That's a LOT of money and a real incentive to buy it out... presumably, the high payments come from high money factor (aka "lease interest"). If the high payments are based on a high purchase price, you're likely out of luck.
Next time you go car shopping, take a calculator. Or at least a pencil and the back of an envelope. Good heavens.

We haven't even talked to the dealer yet. This is our first experience buying a used car from a dealer. If the list price is 24K (we're in CO), is it reasonable to offer significantly less - like 20K, or even less? The 24K price is a little more than Edmund's and KBB say can be expected as the starting price w/the features on this specific pickup, before "haggling." We've been reading up on used car buying, but can't find anything that states what is a reasonable difference between asking and offering price.
