I think you are mistaken. If you look under darcars "new" inventory you will see most 4runners listed at about $2000 below invoice as the special internet price. The reason this dealer can do that is because of the mass amount of inventory they move every month. They probably get great kickbacks from toyota based on their number of sales. I have spoken on the phone with them also and we were not talking about any demo's.

Thanks for posting that website. Keep in mind that is only about 6 or 7 reviews. I am sure that darcars sells a few more cars than that. I don't plan on doing any service with them whatsoever, but if a vehicle is $2,000 cheaper then why not. Good luck. I am sure every dealership has its horror stories, and I know we never here about the good ones.

#795 of 2055 Different pricing at Dealerships than Edm and KBB?
Dec 13, 2004 (9:33 am)
When I list the options on KBB or Edmunds I get an invoice price of about 3K less than what the dealership offers me. On the webs it comes to 33,160 and the dealership is telling me 36,460. They say it's because of installation charges that the dealership has to include for the additional features I'm requesting that they'll add onto an existing car on their lot. I'm looking at the limited, V6 with all the extras. EG: The brush grill is $262 on KBB and the dealership wants to charge me $850 for it. What's up with that difference?

i've been trying to get a straight answer from darcars.com. they claim to sell for 1100 under invoice but that includes the 900 rebate. their msrp is higher that what toyota.com has on their site. so in essence there doesnt seem to be any discount at all. they are also adding dealer prep fees and god knows what else. all sounds a little suspect to me...
