Toyota Tacoma, Truck
Sep 24, 2008 (6:38 am)
I just totaled my 2003 Taco (171k miles), so I am i the market for a new '08 or '09. I live in NJ, and plan to buy within the next week or so.
I will be looking for a 4wd, 6cyl, access cab with the SR5 package. Color is important, with Pyrite Mica being my first choice and Black being the second.
Couple of Questions:
1. Would it make sense to wait until after 09/30 to see what new offers Toyota puts out for the Tacomas (currently only specials on the '09 DC and the '08 models (if any are left))
2. Do you think there is any inventory of 08's left? I am really interested in the Pyrite Mica color, but something tells me it will be difficult to find. I would settle for Black if the Pyrite Mica is not an option, but again, not sure what the 08 selection is like in Central Jersey.
3. What should I expect to pay for an '09? Are the trucks selling so well that the dealers are not backing down? I see the TMV for my area is $26,401, while the MSRP is $26,655. $200 below MSRP is not a good deal. FYI, the invoice is listed at $24,491. Again, are these selling so well that I can really expect to pay almost MSRP?

i would wait untill the new incentives come out Oct. 1+-. I have cast around Ohio and Indiana the past month for a 09 and ever dealer I conatacted would except a $300 over invoice offer.
Wish you were closer to me. I need a few parts off a Tacoma going to the crusher/junk yard that would never be missed.

Thanks for the response, Cal4. I hope you are right and what you heard ($300 over invoice) is more accurate than the Edmunds TMV price.. Any idea as to the '08 inventory, or were you just looking for an '09? I think I will take your advice and wait until 10/1.

I'm looking at an '08 Tacoma double cab, 2wd. sticker was $26749.00.
It's marked down to $24002.00. Now with $2500 cash back that would be a good price at $21502.00 plus doc fees, tax and title.
I'm still thinking about waiting to order an '09 double cab LWB. I like some of the new options and colors.
I'm in Georgia.

I heard dealer cost is 5% off invoice. Does anyone know if that is accurate?

October 25, 2008, I purchased a base model 09 Tacoma 4 cyl. access cab, automatic. Sticker was over $22,000. I paid around $18,800, then with fees and taxes, total was right around $20,000. Does anyone know if this was a good deal?

You state $1000.00 rebate on an 09 Tacoma. I assume this is from Toyota, all i've seen is $500.00 rebate. What pkg. did you get on your Tacoma? I'm looking at an 09 dlb cab swb, SR5 pkg. 2 (JBL), alum, wheels, tow pkg & day running lights. I've been quoted $24,4000.00 from my ins. co.
#953 of 1138 Tacoma rebate

Looks like I got lucky on my '09 Tacoma. In Oct the rebate was $1000.00.
I think it's lower now.
