#827 of 836 2001 Toyota Tundra-I'm confused
Aug 06, 2011 (1:11 am)
I'm looking at a 2001 Used Tundra Regular Cab for my dad at the moment. The car is Automatic and has 133,000 miles but I am not clear as to whether or not it is a Basic or SR5 model (per Edmund's TMV search). I got a TMV value of around $3K and the KBB says it is around $3900. I'm pretty confused at this point, is there a glitch somewhere?
The car is being offered for $4300, I thought it was a phenomenal deal but now I don't know what to think. Also, similar '01s aren't listed for anything under $7K, any input would be appreciated because I'm truly clueless.
As a side note, is it an okay idea to get a car like this from a private party as opposed to getting it from a dealer. Anything major to be on the look out for?
Thanks in advance

#829 of 836 Advertising cost $799
Oct 15, 2012 (5:44 pm)
I'm looking at a new 12' Tundra. Dealer is including a $700 (TAD) fee. Which was explained to me as a charge by Toyota to all dealers for advertising. Say what? I know the auto entities charge dealers for advertising but most of it is returned to them in some sort of hold back set-up. Anybody else experience this BS from Toyota? There's no way I'd pay the $700

Did you buy a pickup truck recently? A reporter is looking to speak with recent truck buyers and how they made their decisions: Which brands did they consider? What did they trade in? And would they consider a different brand in the future? If you'd like to help the reporter with this story, please contact predmunds.com by no later than February 5, 2013.

I contacted no less than 3 Toyota dealerships AFTER they quoted me, via e-mail, their price on a Toyota Tundra 4Wd extended cab LTD series truck. NONE of them would send me, via e-mail, their quoted price along with the taxes and destination fees. In other words their quotes were BOGUS and they knew they were NOT going to sell me that truck at that quoted price.
What was I suppose to do (other than walk away) threaten them with civil litigation? Why bother? I'm sure there are reputable dealers that will stand behind their quoted prices and will put it in writing but I personally found NONE with a Toyota dealer.
#833 of 836 2013 Tundra DC Lease

I just leased a 2013 Toyota Tundra for 36 months, Double Cab, 4.6, Texas Edition, tow package, convenience package and bed liner with 15k miles/year for $379 month with $1000 down. Does this seem like a fair deal?

I can't say for sure but I read where as more than 35% of today's car loans (an all time high) are 60 months or more. Average payment is less than the benchmark $500 amount.

I think you did good. I just did a 36/36000 lease (didn't need the 15k/yr) on a Double Cab, 5.7 4x4 with everything you have but the Texas Edition. $2000 cash out of pocket for $334 month. At 84 month purchase loan we'd be paying close to or over $500/month and have a 7yr old truck at the end of it. Leasing depends on your particular situation and it works for me. (and you too, because we can't back out of it..LOL)
