Toyota Tundra, Truck
Aug 02, 2009 (7:28 pm)
2010 Tundra Crewmax Texas Edition, 5.7L. Texas edition includes 20" chrome rims, chrome nerf bars, and badging on truck and mats. negotiated price was $30880. I think they still made good money as i traded in my 2008 F-150 4.6L w/ 12000 miles. KBB said trade was worth $22300, but went to 3 dealerships and nobody would give me that, traded for $19000. Luckily i got $13k off the sticker on that truck back in december and ended up even. had to get additional towing for our boat. the f-150 stuggled with the 6000 lbs. hope your not paying full price for f-150's or you plan on keeping it for awhile.
all this was at star toyota in league city, tx. dealership was great and very easy to work with. can't say the same for community toyota in baytown. drove all the way to baytown to find out they never had what they claimed they had in stock over the phone.

Bought 2010 Crewmax yesterday at 10PM with $2k rebate. Noticed this morning the rebates went up to $3k for crewmax. They had to get the truck from a different state and I have not taken ownership, however all papers have been signed. Do i have any options for getting that extra $1k?

Msrp here in my area is $32,196. Truck seems to have everything I need. Does anyone know how much they should negotiate down on the truck? Do you think $28,000 is asking for too much off of the truck?

Here in the Dallas area new Tundras are just plain rare. 5.7 4WD's are almost non exisistent. Maybe IF you can find a 2009 they would do the deal. But if they have very FEW 2010's they may hold out for closer to sticker. Right now I think there is a big supply and demand thing with Tundras and it is a sellers market. Good Luck!

Is no one monitoring or posting anymore in this thread? I sure would like to see an answer to post #725. I am also thinking about getting a tundra in the not too distant future and would like to know if anyone has info on what kind of apr's one could get with their credit score..? Is anyone still able to check the invoice on a truck if we have the vin? Any help would be great!

I think people are waiting for the rebates to go back up. Earlier this year there was a $3,500 rebate on this truck; now $1,000. Also I see dealerships in my area have low inventory, I wonder if they will rebuild that inventory pre-clunkers? With the cost of oil hovering around $76/barrel I wonder if people are having 2nd thoughts about purchasing a new truck.
I can't speak for anyone else, but with unemployment set to go over 10% anytime now; it is no wonder that consumers are not spending. If you are laid off or think you may become laid off I don't think that unnecessary purchases are a wise decision.
In the short inventory is low and dealers are not as willing to give a great deal at this point. So in the end there are people on the sidelines waiting.
Please post if you recently purchased a new Tundra and let us know what type of deal you received!!!!

Well I was considering getting a tundra by the end of the year. The rebates right now, in my area (houston), are 2000. Not as good as 3500, but from what I've heard the highest rebates tend to be around spring or summer.
I know what you mean about the economy. Times are not good for a lot of people. Part of the reason I thought i'd be able to get a good deal. I saw a truck at a dealership, DC SR5 with grill guard, running boards, spray on liner, upgraded tires and rims, and tool box. for around 32,500 thats been sitting on there lot for a several months.These are all things I wanted to get on the truck anyway and it'd save me the time and trouble with them on. But the downside is its a 2wd and I was wanting to get a 4wd. Any thoughts?

I would wait. I'm only guessing here but as long as sales are slow I believe at some point the incentives are going to get better. "CFC" stripped most dealerships inventory and are now slowly repleneshing them. The question is how much inventory is a dealership going to have going forward? Probably less than before, at least until the economy begins to improve, most importantly job gains.
Also do not compromise on the type of truck you want. If you want 4wd then get it; you will kick yourself in the a** if you don't.
Can't hurt to wait till January or so; unless you need a new vehicle right now. And let's wait and see how the price of oil fluctuates; the higher the price the oil the lower the demand for trucks and SUV's.

I can wait a little while, but not too long. I have a lease coming to an end and will need something probably by january. I will wait as long as I can though, and see if the deals get any better. Isn't it true though, that prices on trucks tend to go down when gas prices are up? I seem to remember people a couple years back getting great deals.
Do people still post on these forums, lol. Doesn't seem like it, but maybe I'm looking in the wrong threads.
