I went to Champion Toyota and walked out after an hour waiting for bozo sales guy who doesn't know his product. Sales process for $30-40k sales is horrible. I am a buyer. Are there any sales people who know their product? What on earth do they do while waiting for buyers to show up? One thing they don't do is read up on their products. This happened three moths ago. I want to get rid of my 2001 GMC C3 for a Fully equipped Tundra double cab 4x4 with leather split bench plus...
Just got back tonight from Classic Toyota in Round Rock, TX. The salesguy/lot-runner was honest in saying he didn't know much about the Tundra because he had only worked there six weeks. Took me in to a smiley faced guy who was to close the deal since he had 4 years experience over the young lot-runner. I have now more questions than answers. Simple questions they do not have answers.
Who has good telephone sales nationwide of Toyotas? By "good" I mean knows the product and the different configurations. I want to know what I am buying before I buy.
Why is the car business have such low rent sales, including Toyota
I have really the same question as you.

No Negotiation. Cerritos of Toyota in California have an advertisement 2005 tundra with the MSRP of $26,544 for $19,488. No pressure, you can pay the whole thing or finance. I have no trade in. Out the door price was $21,375...Today is their last day due to mfr's rebate of $2,500 (May 31, 2995).

sounds like your purchasing your tundra in the gulf states distributorship... let me say as a sales person... the extra mile package isn't worth all that money... it's a good thing to have, but it's invoice is probably double what the msrp is. here in southeast toyota we have something called toyoguard plus protection for 699 but the invoice is like 400. that's the thing with edmunds, they don't know everything. for example, here in the southeast region, on a limited tundra if you want the leather package from the factory, it will come with woodgrain trim and msrp is around $1800... but edmunds will tell you the msrp is around $1100... so the information is a good guide, but i wouldn't stake my life on it.

I've been looking at a 2005 Tundra V-8 Access Cab also. $26,544.00 is the sticker and best I've been able to get them to is $22,000.00 even out the door. I'm still not sure I'm going to get a Tundra yet. Still may go for something smaller. I looked at a 2005 Tacoma 4 Cyl. Auto Access cab SR-5 package 2 and it was $21,000.00 OTD. I would like to have something a little smaller and a little better on fuel but man only $1,000.00 difference between the two.

Bought the Tundra listed above yesterday. E-mailed the dealer back Friday night and told him what Toyota of Cerritos was selling it for. We finally worked it out to $21,496.45 OTD. I was happy with that and not having to drive into the L.A. area to buy the truck. Overall very pleased with Toyota of Oxnard. Dealt mainly with the salesman online and they were very easy to work with. No pressure or hassles. Great info off of Edwards.com and these forums really helped out. I got the truck I wanted with more options and less money than I ever thought I would.
