Toyota Tundra, Truck
#799 of 836 Florida negotiating
Apr 14, 2010 (5:11 pm)
I wonder if the dealer is subject to SE Toyota price rules, or is each dealer completely free to negotiate "at will". I can imagine a situation where the prices are kept high, then are offset by high trade in allowances, in order to keep the market perception high. It seems the best reports here are on the out of state dealer.
Florida Toyotas, and other cars/trucks, seem to be priced a few thousand higher than some other areas. Or maybe I just look like a sucker.
I would be interested in Toyota and Chevrolet dealers in the Central Florida/Jax/Melbourne area who are willing to negotiate hard.

again? lol, guys these numbers are secret. go look up the mpgs on these trucks. there's not much difference between the 2 engines.
can't help you with the payload package though. maybe if you sacrifice another mile per gallon you can get that with a 6.2

Why don't you forget about how the distributor who inserts himself between your dealer and the factory configured what is still now "his" truck and start with a clean piece of paper? Advise you dealer that you don't want and are simply not going to pay for a truck in Jax FL that has
1) a cold weather package LOL
2) heated mirrors
3) A Toyo Protection Package
4) Dealer fees
And if you were me and I lived in Jax , I would also delete the
4) fog lamps
5) power sliding rear window (why do you want to suck leaves out of the bed and into the cab?)
Then I would ask the dealer to order me one with my options and give me an Out The Door Price. He'll protest because he knows that only smart buyers who comparison shop--like fleets--insist on a build to spec, out the door price. But why should you pay for what some clerk at a distributorship thinks YOU want in your new truck??
Frankly, although I like the Tundra as a product, GM is much easier to get along with. You can order anything you want and not be forced into options you don't want. For example, I ordered my 2008 Silverado LT Extended Cab 4x4 to have leather seats ($800) but no center console, standard size wheels and tires (I'm 5'10" and 65: why do I want 18" or 19" wheels?), the 5.3 engine ($700) because the Tow package at that time came with it and I wanted the extra coolers and the locking rear end, extra air bags but no sliding rear window, etc. etc. all for a net-net price (dealer invoice) of 31K.
Lets all remember who works for whom.

Can you tell me where you bought it at? What's the saleman name? That's a great price

I'm curious what the best deals are recently for a crewmax with the 5.7 V8; 2010?
Has anyone made a purchse in June? The end of the month is coming up and I'm considering the lease offer they have on the double cab. However would prefer to purchase a CrewMax.
I live in the midwest.

I was all set to go get a Tundra this week then learned that the incentive expired in New England. Looks like I will be passing on this one now.

Nov 10, 2010 (10:37 am)
I've been doing alot of reading abount the Tundras and like any truck see there are some complaints. I have always had a Ford but came across a prety good deal. I have an older neighbor selling her Husbands 2001 Tundra with 13,068 miles on it for 12K. It has the access cab 4 door, 4.7L V8 with the tow package. Any one have any input to if this its a good price? I do tow a camper thats 5500 pounds. The truck looks brand new and has always been garaged kept.
