#17 of 46 Tacoma v. Tundra
Jan 02, 2004 (4:57 am)
When I was test driving trucks, I took out a Tacoma 4x4 king cab(?)and a Tundra 4x4 supercab(?). The Tundra was a comfortable truck with a good ride but the seating postion seemed a bit low. The tacoma had a harsh bouncy ride and I did not get more than a mile from the dealer and turned back.
If ride is critial to you, the Tundra would be a better choice
#18 of 46 Recent 2004 Tundra Double-cab order
Jan 06, 2004 (4:00 am)
I recently ordered a 2004 double-cab 4x4 tundra limited model with leather pkg, heated leather seats, towing package, rear audio controls, color-keyed running boards, moonroof, all weather package, over head console package, limited slip differential, every option you could possible get besides the rear DVD system ($1770), the sticker was over $38,000, I ordered this truck to my exact specifications and the final price of the truck was a mere $34,800 after destination charges and all from my local dealer, I called 10 or so different toyota dealers within a 100 mile radius from where I live and every salesman told me they could not meet or beat this price, and they all said that they are getting sticker price out of them. I done my homework and shopped around on edmunds and a few others to get invoice pricing and such. When I went to the dealership in my area, I sat down with him and told him what I wanted and how much I was willing to pay. less than a minute later, they said it was a done deal, I put $500 down and it is expected to be here in April. After taxes, tile, license, extended warranty and all the final price minus my undetermined down payment was $36,351. I feel very good about this deal, and if I had not done my homework, i would be paying this price or more without all the other closing deal costs.

Any Texas buyers getting invoice pricing from Gulf States Toyota distribution dealers? Also whats the gas mileage like on the 4x2 DC? I just narrowed the field to the Titan and the Toyota DC.

#21 of 46 Doublecheck your contract
Jan 25, 2004 (5:52 am)
Be sure to doublecheck your sales contract. My husband negotiated a price with this dealer and wrote everything down regarding options, etc. He had the salesperson re-iterate one by one. Lo and behold when the contract was written up, two options disappeared....We have since found out that an extended family member of ours also had problems with this dealer.

Test drove the DC over the weekend. Dealer had only a TRD version. Is the ride any different on the non TRD's? If not, then what is the value of opting for the TRD package? Thanks!
#23 of 46 Overhead console option not available in CA?
Jan 26, 2004 (1:03 pm)
I'm in the process of buying a dcab limited in southern California. I really wanted the overhead console that displays outside temp and compass, but the dealer told me this is not available yet. I know this is available in Texas though, so now I'm considering buying out-of-state. Anyone out there knows if this is true and if so are there regions closer to San Diego where I will get this option?

I'm searching for a LTD DC with VSC. Is this a hard option to come by in the northeast? Most limiteds that I'm coming across only have limited slip diff and not VSC.

Just thought I would let you all know that Toyota is offering a low 1.9% for 60 months on the Double Cab 2004, yes I said Double Cab.
But it ends tomorrow. I have one on order and is scheuled to be in around April. I sure hope this pops up again.
