stn0795.... just wanted to put my 2 cents in... I have an 07 Toyota Avalon and have been so impressed with the build on the car that when my son decided to buy a new truck last week, I persuaded him to check out the tundra. Initially he wanted a Nissan Titan.. I don't know anything about them, but from an aesthetic point of view, I thought it was hideous. anyway my son fell in love with the Tundra and just took possession of a new 06 Tundra 4x2 Double cab SR5 V-8. Alot of immenities, power windows, doors, electric back window, leather, fog lamps, and the list goes on and on. He ended up getting the truck for 24,558 + TT&L. Again, not sure if thats a great deal, but fairly confident that he got a "good" deal... when you factor in that he totaled his 2001 gmc stepside that I just finished paying off and signed over to him, and that he got an insurance check for 12 grand for the wrecked truck, it becomes pretty obvious that he got a great deal. ( I did think 12 grand for a 5 1/2 year old gmc stepside was good ) 12 grand in his pocket that he never even had to spit for brings those 28 to 30K tundras alot more affordable when you can knock 40% off with an insurance check...

Good deal on the ins payoff. Who's your insurance with. Chubb group?
Good call on the Titan vs Tundra deal too. Although it has its drawbacks and Titan has its advantages its a better and more reliable truck.

#224 of 838 What is reasonable to expect off MSRP on 2006 DC LTD?
Dec 11, 2006 (8:53 am)
Unfortunately my 2004 DC LTD is totalled, thanks to a cell phone talker that didin't see me stopped in traffic to turn left and rearended me at 55mph. I loved the truck and will be replacing it with an 06 DC LTD. MSRP is about 38K, One dealer offered 2K off MSRP plus the $3000 rebate. Another dealer offered $31,500 after rebate and discount. Does this seem reasonable? I really want an 06, I prefer the more traditional style and real fake wood dash to the more modern style and larger size of the new 07 redesign. Plus I am reluctant to buy the first year of any new model, even a toyota.
Does 31,500 for a 4x4 DC LTD in WI sound reasonable?

Start at my message 3863 on the Honda CR-V prices paid discussion for useful info on how to buy a car.
The DC model seems to be a particularly slow mover around southern Ohio, with the access cab nowhere to be found. I'm not particularly fond of price targets, but if you need one start at about 10k off and be be happy with 7500-10k. The limited edition may be similar. Unless there are significantly less of them. Play hard to get as it is a buyers market.
A inventory search from the Toyota website for about 200mi your surrounding area will show your supply situation. This whole market segment this year has been discounted 25- 30% off. The 08 redesign has slowed sales also.

Hi laney0069.. in your last post you asked if 29,274 was a good deal on the truck you were looking at. I believe you're looking at a 4 wheel drive vehicle... compare that to the truck my son bought 3 weeks ago, 06 double cab tundra 2 wheel drive, leather, electric everything, but does not have navigation or back up cams. he bought his truck for 24,558 + tax, title and license... as for extended warranty, I guess they run different prices between cars and trucks... i bought a new 07 toyota avalon sedan 3 months ago.. the extended warranty was 72 mo or 100,000 Miles with a $50 deductable and it cost me 1595.00 My son bought an extended warranty for his tundra, same terms, 72 months, 100,000 miles, but with a zero deductable.. his warranty cost him 1080. 520 less than I paid for mine... Go figure.

Went last night to go buy. Had them down to invoice only ( no plus $500 over invoice). Looked at the blue metallic. I pulled it into the dealer garage looked over. It was hit on the fender flare and maybe slightly pushed the bed a touch. Didn't fell comfterable buying even they said it would look good as new. Exact same setup and color avail in 2 weeks. Might get that or choose different color somewhere else.
One those warr. you bought where they toyota warr. or aftermarket?
#228 of 838 Reasonable Offer for Tundra SR5?
Dec 13, 2006 (11:47 am)
Looking to buy a new vehicle and 2006 tundra is one on my list. I found locally (PA) a 2006 Tundra SR5 Crew Cab 4wd V8 Silver. Not sure of the options but it is listed at $30240 MSRP. What is a realistic offer to make? and would this offer include the $3000 rebate or would that be additional to the offer I make? Thanks.

Dec 15, 2006 (11:31 pm)
first question I have for you is the 3000 rebate something new in December. My son bought a new Tundra near the end of November and the rebate was 4 grand... might want to double check that... as for the amount to offer, let me just tell you my sons truck is a new 06 double cab v-8, leather, electric windows and locks, pretty much everything except it dosnt have navigation or heated or cooled seats. also his truck is 2wd... he got his truck for an out the door cost of 24,500 Hope this helps... oh, he had a gmc sierra 1500 before this... he says no comparison..Tundra blows it away. Good luck.
