Feb 28, 2006 (10:58 pm)
The info on this board has been worth so much I thought I'd post my 2/28/06 deal at Dick Milham in Easton,PA.
2006 SR5 4x4
roof rack rails
Original trade offer on my 04 Accord LX coupe $14,000(edmunds average trade in value) bumped to $14,750. 36 month lease at $369 (at TierII) plus tax (9% in PA on leases) Absolutely go through the internet department! I got a Toyota lease pre-approved online, asked for quotes from 3 dealerships around 1pm. Went to the dealership at 4pm where my selection was waiting at the showroom door, inspected it, finalized the deal, gave them ONLY my first payment and left at 5:45. The internet salesperson was very open and made everything very simple, all I did was show up and say yes or no. I waited for about 15 minutes at one point while my salesperson went to rework my trade value and saw two other deals get signed, highlander hybrid and a Rav4, another couple had come back to close a deal as well, so I would assume this dealership was pushing the incentive/last day of the month crunch. The two other dealerships who quoted saw my lease pre-approval and tried to up sell me on heavily optioned SR5's and even a used Limited. These two did not want to deal with me online.

I recently bought an 06 SR5 4WD V6 and I learned a hard lesson in the process that I’d like to share with anyone buying a new vehicle, especially a Toyota.
I test drove an SR5 at the local dealer and liked it a lot. However, I wanted a specific color and option package which they did not have in their inventory. They found one at another dealer, we agreed on a price and they made arrangements to bring it in for me. Being anxious to make the deal, I made my first mistake by making a non-refundable deposit on the vehicle.
When it arrived, I made a second fatal mistake of not test driving it before doing the deal. After delivery I found that it had bad gear whine and some other general issues, none of which were present on the one I test drove. If they had been, I wouldn’t have bought it. Toyota refuses to do anything to fix my complaints, saying that the whine is a “characteristic” of the vehicle. Oddly, I have not found anyone else who has this “characteristic” in their 4Runner.
The lesson here is not to buy any vehicle without doing a very thorough test drive of the SPECIFIC VEHICLE that you are buying BEFORE signing any paperwork or writing any checks. If you have problems, you can not count on Toyota to make it right.
This is my first purchase of a non-domestic brand vehicle. I have had issues with the domestic brands as well but I’ve never had Ford, Chrysler or GM tell me that the problem was a “characteristic” of their vehicle and not at least attempt to fix whatever my problem was. I bought Toyota largely based on their legendary reputation for quality and service and have found both to be just that, only a legend not a truth.

When you research used vehicles over the US, Toyotas look to hold their value much more than most other makes. Is it a reputation that
1) has buyers fooled
2) has earned it's reputation?

Out of curiosity, does that paid price ($34,800) include taxes?

Thanks to everyone for posting here. It has been a huge help.
We just purchased a car last night and am curious of what you think of the deal. Any feedback would be appreciated.
2006 4-Runner Sports Edition
*Moonroof (all the stuff the Sport Package comes with)
Then we added:
*Heated Front Seats
*Sirius Satellite Radio
Selling Price: $31,993 (2.9% financing)
What do you think? Was this a good deal? Would we have been better off leasing?

Sounds to me like a great deal. Couple of questions though. How did you get heated leather seats in a Sport Edition? I thought they were only available in Limited's? Congratulations on your new ride!

No, the $34,800 was before TTL
I bought it out of state so I paid taxes when I registered it.

After digging up some information here on the current lease deals on the 4Runner, I just got back from the dealership for one.
2006 4Runner Sport Edition
MSRP - $34680
Invoice - $31539
36 month/12,000 mile lease. Residual on it is 61%. You can't beat that Tier 1+ money factor right now. I don't have all the paperwork for more detail as they had to locate mine. I paid $150 over invoice. I probably could have gotten it cheaper, but I stated that as my initial offer. It will be here Wednesday.

I guess you can special order the sport with leather from the factory, but it takes a few months. However, the dealer offered to do it for us. Apparently, they get these requests a lot and work with a shop to fulfill the requests. While they were at it we asked them to add on the heated function (it cost an extra $450). We pick it up tomorrow. I'm stoked!
