What is this discussion about?
Toyota Tundra, Truck

Has anyone ever used carsdirect for the purchase of a new auto? I have submitted a request for a 2010 Tundra Crewmax 5.7L with a sticker of $37,990 and received a special internet price of $34,523 plus $1,000 rebate offered in Massachusetts from Toyota for a net of $33,523 plus TT&L. Does this seem like a good deal or not? I think the incentives are set to change on 11/2 and I may wait to see if rebates go up higher than the current $1,000 offered in this region.

That sounds a bit high compared to what others have gotten. I would compare it to the edmunds TMV pricing to know for sure. Can you negotiate the price on carsdirect.com? In my area the incentives recently went up from 2000 to 3500. But the financing isn't very good, around 6% i think.
Your truck doesn't sound like a limited, but do you have lots of upgrades? That tends to inflate the price quite a bit..

I assume you mean 2010 Tundra, not tacoma. A 5.8L tacoma would be news to me. I'd suggest you give some actual numbers on the price of the tundra if you want an accurate response. Unless ppl know what you got for the tacoma. Have you compared the price to edmunds TMV?? I will be getting my truck probably just after or before new years. Please post what you paid if you bought it already!

I was just looking at this forum and noticed your post. I was in the market for a new Sequoia and tried cardirect and found a better way. Try overstock.com cars and look at true car .com.
I have a new Sequoia on order which was $ 500 cheaper than cars direct .com The vehicle cost with options is $ 700 over dealer invoice or $ 3,200 off sticker. The price on this vehicle has gone down to about $166 above dealer invoice since I ordered.

truecar.com seemed like an awesome site so thanks for that. didn't find any cars on overstock.com though. Sounds like you got a pretty good deal on the sequoia.
I am in the market for a tundra right now. they are offering $3000 incentive on them in my area (texas). that puts the model i want around 31k or so. And according to the websites i've checked out i should be able to get another couple of thousand off of it.
i will post on here how it goes/went when the time comes!

I used carsdirect some years ago to purchase a vehicle. They price they gave me was the price I paid for the vehicle. I would use them again.

Cars direct gave me good price but you are paying a 500 dollar bird dog fee for the car. I saved the 500 dollars using overstock.com cars getting the exact same vehicle.
I had two dealers competing for my business both offering the same price Carsdirect had only one dealer in the same area which was 500 higher in price.
