#150 of 838 End of year deals
Sep 25, 2005 (4:50 am)
Has anyone tried to take advantage of the end of year specials?
I've been to 3 dealers in the Atlanta area and one in Macon. It has mostly been a complete farce for two major reasons:
you have to practically threaten the salesman with violence before you get something even close to fair for your trade.
Dealerships continually use factory rebates to mask other things they stick in the price and when you call them out on it the response is always the same "but I'm giving you $3000 off" - that's not costing the dealership a dime and when they try to peck away at my FACTORY rebate I get very pissed off.
With the exception of one of the four dealerships I've visited, OTD price has always been a few hundred over invoice minus rebate on 2005's Tundra's (yes, I said 2005). You would think there would be a little more motivation to get these off the lot. Speaking of invoice, it seems standard at Toyota dealers that invoice = invoice plus various mark-ups. Yet another ploy I am completely sick of seeing.
One dealer who didn't have anymore 2005's (therefore leveled with me on a few things) said Toyota is still not happy with market penetration and that's why we have rebates on 2006 Tundra's that just got on the lot this month. Apparently there is too big a gap between Ford/Chevy and Toyota full sized pickups. I can tell you why, it's not about the truck, it's about the morons at the dealership.
I do NOT want to buy a Ford/Chevy/Dodge/Nissan/whatever but there is no way I'm going to buy a 2005 unless I get a really good deal. These sales managers who try to convince me that I'm getting a really good deal are so pathetic.
anyway... rant off...... There are still 10 or so 2005 Double cabs in the Atlanta area, I'm curious to see what they do when we get into October and there are still on the lot.

There are several postings from around the country on the 05 and 06 DBL CABS. I just priced and bought mine at the same dealership in Tempe, AZ. They are at Invoice less the $1250 rebate on an 06. The dealership invoice was slightly less than the Edmonds invoice. Go through the internet department and you will get your invoice quote.
As far as trade-ins go, sell the vehicle on your own. The dealers have a lot of trade-ins on their lots and the larger used vehicles trucks and SUV's are not moving. The dealers are even undercutting the KBB Trade in Values.
New large trucks simply are not selling well. If you cannot get the Tundra you want at or near invoice, move onto another dealer. Toyota simply cannot move the new Tundra's, hence the rebate.

I just bought a 05 4x4 Tundra Limited Access cab fully loaded for 27K plus usual Tax Lic etc They are thin on the ground but right now 3K rebate from the factory makes for a pretty good deal.
