#1291 of 2055 Price quotes for a new 4runner?
Jan 08, 2006 (3:03 pm)
I have a 2001 4runner SR5 with moonroof and I'm looking to upgrade to a 2006,v8,4wd sports, 4runner with moonroof, rear spoiler, 6 disc, dbl cargo with net.
The best deal I''ve found is from CarsDirect for $31,589 plus tax and tag after $1500 rebate.
A dealer has one with leather seats(TMV$1,120) for $33,828.
It seems to me that the dealer is not including the rebate in his price quote since the CarsDirect price plus leather would only be $32,709.
I'm I wrong to expect a dealer to be able to do this deal at $32,500 plus tax and tag?
Since I will be paying cash and have a trade (high miles so expecting $13000), does that hurt the deal?
Does anyone know if Toyota rebate will be extended since it ends Jan 9th?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
#1292 of 2055 Buying Experience...2006 4Runner Limited
Jan 09, 2006 (6:43 am)
This past Saturday I took delivery of a new 2006 4Runner Limited V6. I made the purchase from Wilde Toyota in Milwaukee, even though I live in the Minneapolis area, five hours away.
Wilde Toyota accepted a price $900 lower than any dealer in the Twin Cities. Negotiation began with email on 12/27 and was soon followed up with phone conversations. I conversed with two different sales people in the internet department at Wilde...both very easy to work with.
I did have problems with the process because on two occasions, Wilde told me they had located my 4Runner and asked me to make the trip to Milwaukee to pick it up. Of course before making the trip, I had them fax me the vehicle detail sheets for each vehicle. On both occasions, they had secured (through dealer trade) the wrong vehicle...wrong options or color.
Now, I am quite sure this was not done intentionally, but was rather an oversight. Apparently, Wilde sells between 600 and 700 new and used cars a month. With that much volume, it seems they sometimes loose a few important details, like making sure they have found the right car the customer.
So, I really ended up doing a bit of the work myself in double and tripple checking options, colors, financing terms, etc. But, I did get the exact vehicle I wanted so for me, it was worth the effort.
Even with those hiccups, I am very satisfied with the price and the service. All the staff I interacted with was polite and helpful. Overall, it was a good experience.
Here's the details:
Lease 3yr/25k mile per year (that's right, I drive a ton )
Toyota 4Runner V6/Limited
JBL Synthesis & 6 Disc, DRL's, Tow Pkg, Moon Roof, Spoiler, floor mats.
MSRP = $39,651
Cap Cost = $34,850
MF = .00045 (with Tier 1+ and Encore discount)
Residual = $18,843
Payment = $468/mo before tax.

#1298 of 2055 Buying a new non-current year.
Jan 23, 2006 (12:47 pm)
Hello all. This is my first post on this forum.
I live in Ontario Canada and I have been looking at buying an SUV for the past several months. I have decided on a V8 4Runner Limited because to me, it seems to be way ahead of the competition. I have a 5000lb+ boat to pull and I need the room because my wife and I are expecting our first child.
A dealer not too far away has a new 2005 V8 Limited 4Runner with less than 100kms on it. He is asking $44,750 + 1810 frt, PDI, gas & air tax. After all the taxes we pay the drive away price will be $53,750.00.This price is about $2000 below the dealer's cost.
This is about $4500-5500 less than buying a 2006 V8 Limited. Does this sound like a good deal?
Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
#1299 of 2055 Special Ordering 2006 4Runner Sport
Jan 23, 2006 (8:22 pm)
I've been in the market for a new 2006 4Runner Sport for a couple months now. I'm looking for some very particular options. It turns out that Toyota does not ship the vehicle the way I want it... or even close to it. No worries, I just need to special order this puppy. Problem is, all the dealers I talk to are pretty reluctant to place the order and/or to negotiate the price... then they tell me that it's going to take 4-6 MONTHS to receive.
I'm clear on all of the issues with dealers preferring to sell off the lot and all that... I'm not clear if 4-6 months is accurate or if they're just trying to discourage me from placing the order.
I know I'm going to order the vehicle. I'm OK with waiting (although I'd prefer it not be up to 6 months!) I know some of my bargaining power is gone since I'm basically looking for a car that doesn't exist. So here's the deal... this is what I'm looking for:
2006 Toyota 4Runner Sport V6 4x2
DVD navigation system
Garage door opener
Auto-dim mirror with compass
Power outlet, 115v
Security system upgrade
Trailer hitch (and wiring)
This all comes to an invoice price of $30,477. The dealer is offering $32,500. I said I'd go to $31,000, period. He's now "checking with his inventory manager" to get the latest invoice pricing and to see if "he can do that deal."
So, long story short (if it's not too late), my question is two-fold:
Am I being fair in sticking to my above-invoice price on this special order vehicle?
Is 4-6 months really how long it will take?
And just FYI, going to the Limited is not an option since they tend to start at around $38,000 in my area and still would require a special order for the nav system.

I am also going to special order a 2006 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD V8 (5 Speed) and one of the dealers in NC told me it will take 30-60 days...
