#645 of 838 2007 Tundra TRD 4x4 5.7 double cab with 38 miles
Aug 22, 2008 (1:06 pm)
My Dad is buying right now as we speak a used certified 2007 Tundra TRD 4x4 5.7 double cab 38 miles. The Toyota Dealer in Arlington TX said they purchased a lot of over stock from California. I looked at CARFAX and that seems to be the case.
He looked at a 08 truck with the same options and the sticker was 36k minus the 5k rebate and minus an extra 3k off his price would have been 28k.
He feels good that with the 7 yr 100k warranty that this certified truck was a better value at 24,500. plus TT&L.
Thought I would share. Thanks for the great info!

#647 of 838 Great deal on 2007

I live in Calif. and have been going on line for months looking for just the right 2007.
I found it at Vandergriff Toyota in Arlington, Texas. The 2007 DBL cab, 4x2, 5.7eng.
Limited with Nav, camera and all the goodies was $26K out to door (except Cal.tax). Truck has 65 miles and I got the 7yr/100K warrenty included. Looking at the prices listed all over the country, just let me say don't hesitate to negotiate!
Before being shipped, I had them install the wood dash kit and they gave a very fair price below msrp. Shop around, throw out your best price and let the dealer earn your business.
#648 of 838 How much under Invoice can I get now?
Aug 23, 2008 (6:58 am)
Basically, I don't deal with a final number. The last four cars I bought, I just
offered so much over or under invoice, depending on how hot the car was at the time.
I bought two VW just by calling around and asking for invoice. It keeps things simple.
Then once you get that settled, you can pick and choose from Trucks available.
So far on my Tundra, I have gotten starting offer of Invoice plus $275 from my
usual dealer. That was via an email.
So using invoice as a point. What are people getting now. I will be using
the full $5500 in rebates available after that is settled.
I was hoping for $500 under invoice. I would accept that deal.
(I will be getting a SR5 4x4 Dbl Cab regular bed).

Why not deal with the final number since we all pay an OTD price? Never make the offer... just compare apples to apples and go with the best OTD price... plain and simple.

The reason I use Invoice minus(or plus) is that each car is equipped a little different
and I just agree to pay a price relative to invoice, then I can pick and choose
from what is available. You pay dealer invoice for the car and all options plus or minus your premium or discount. Otherwise you have to pick one particular car.
For example I called a few dealers, told them I would buy a Tundra for Invoice -$500 and wait for them to decide if they want to sell for that. Then I see if they have what I want in stock or available.

Well I understand what you are saying however you are not comparing apples to apples.

I figure it is the only way to compare apples to apples as each car might be a little
different in extra equipment. The apple is the discount given that each will vary. I want a truck as close to what I want at fixed discount.
If one has a better stereo than I want, at least I am only paying invoice for it.
The more numbers the dealer gets to play with, the more confusing it is for the buyer.
I am totally happy negotiating a fixed price relative to invoice.

We are looking at the same truck, orange county, ny. Can you lmk the dealer you went with? You got a great deal IMO. Just starting my research, late in the game, it seems, for August. Are all these rebates still applicable? Thanks!!
#654 of 838 I bought one for Invoice -500 plus $5500 rebates
Aug 26, 2008 (6:59 am)
I picked up a new truck last night for $500 (before $5500 in rebates) under invoice. There are plenty of trucks out there still and you can probably do better still as every dealer I called said no problem to that discount, however they claim Toyota is trying to dry up the supply so they don't have to have such high rebates and can bring out their 2009. I had to get some things I did not want as their were none with the bare minimum of items I wanted. I used Edmonds.com for my guide on invoice price.
However, you cannot find the car you build online. I had to take a few more options
like the Back Up Camera, which I am totally glad I got.
I ended up spending about $2,000 more than I went in to spend, but still
about $4,000 less than my 2000 Tundra was when I bought it in 1999.
To get the $1500 Business Owner rebate, you must register in business name and get business financing from Toyota, which is 1% higher. However, I usually pay my cars off in 3 months or so, once I sell my older car and move some money around to cover.
