#55 of 95 Re: What price range should I pay for a 2007 Tocoma work truck? [rocky1957]

Tacomas come in both 4 and 6 cylinder versions. Long and short bed as well as 2 and 4 wheel drive. Since the Tundra has just been totally re-designed amd recently released supplies are going to drive the price higher. Thus the cost of a Tundra might be higher with less discounts available. use my profile to email me to contact me and I'll give you a phone number to contact to a Toyota fleet salesman who sold me my Tacoma, he was very open with what cost was and what he would actually sell me the truck for without haggling.

Since posting about my experience with Costco I found that the dealers they send you to still vary in price. I was able to find a dealer that had an even lower price then above. Email me for the name and info. The issue will always be what IS the actual cost of the truck you want and then they add their profit. While people will comment on what you should be paying and what price you should get, finding the model and options you want first, then finding a salesman willing to sell it at that price are two different things.
#57 of 95 what's the truck really worth??
Feb 13, 2007 (6:16 pm)
I have been researching and deciding which truck to get??!!
I think I am going to get the 4x4 crew cab with Trd-off road edition
If I'm going to get a pick up truck, I'm going to get something that COOKS!!!
I saw a lot of posting on this sites and other sites, I was at the toyota dealers on a sunday so they wont bother me and looked at the sticker price on that truck. Its around 30,000
It went up from the last yr model!
Anyway, I saw that one guy got the trd-sport for like $26500 with extra options
do you guys think I can get it too???
I did alot of research of dealer invoice cost of the trd-off rd.
I dont know if I believe it or not what it says on the computer.
What do you guys think? How much would you guys pay for a 4x4 crew cab trd-off rd
$26500 would be great deal eh! I'll probably get the tonneau top too!
I live in NJ guys. Need some insight and quidance!!

I bought a 2006 4X4 V6 Access cab, with the TRD off road package, Towing package and floor mats. (I did not want the floor mats but they are part of the Toyota invoice). In any event the salesman I used told me that the same truck as a 2007 was not much more ($100-$500) but they did not offer the $1000 rebate as the 2006 models. I see that 2007 models have some changes, while slight they do have some changes. They also get 1 MPG better city then a 2006, the other figures remain the same. You also have to buy a first aid kit for a 2007 that you did not for a 2006.
List for my 2006 was $28,870 with all options
I paid $25,266, plus $86 dealer profit
Then add tax, Doc fee $45, DMV $258 and $9 Tire fee
So use the above discount as a starting point, I would not think the 2007's went up more then $200 from that or 1%.
Good Lick, im in California so it would not make sense for me to give you the salesman and dealer info to buy from them as im sure they could do this same deal for you. Email me via my profile if needed.
Feb 15, 2007 (6:59 pm)
so how much was the truck total cost?
tire fee? document Fee?
I dont think I'm going to pay for that! Document fee is a BS fee where they got nothing else to do but charge us to do the paperwork?!!
That would piss me off!!!
how do you tell how much they are making on the truck on profit?
I saw KBB and edmunds dealer invoice cost, but how do i know it is true and real?
the truck actually went up like $2000
I having research since 2006 comparing with Nissan Frontier Nismo
It was above $28000 with the options i wanted in 2006 then in 2007 it was over $30000!! BS!!!
I dont care too much of the 6 disc charge, but I do want the AUX so i can plug in my i-pod.
They should give out the weather mat, they are like $20 at costco.
my ideal truck is pretty much like yours but with crew cab!

We all will walk into a dealer and refuse to pay certain fees.
You'll have to end up using the old "start walking out" when you refuse to pay one of the minor fees. When it came down to it for me I was looking at $26000. By the way my above post is what I paid, plus you have to add in sales tax, which was 8.25 in Cal. So I was OTD out the door tax included for $27,515 to be exact.
Floor mats are in fact a rip off and a Toyota manufacturer rip off, I sold mine on Ebay and spent the $20 on the Costco mats. While they did fit perfect as opposed to the Costco mats they're not worth the invoice of $104 which by the way also includes some small door sil protectors. The dealer might deduct the mats if you held them to it. Ask them to keep the mats but they can't take out the door sil protectors.
Im told that Totyota pays the dealer another 2-3% hidden profit we don't see. Im sure their are some other incentives for them besides that. You can take the INVOICE above $25,266 (which also includes the $605 destination fee) as invoice, then refuse to pay another penny and see what happens when you head to the door. Don't forget that the Tacoma is a popular truck, so they may not care. In fact some of their other products like the CJ and the Prius, you can forget about haggling since if you won't buy it the next guy will.
You don't have to buy the 6 disk player, I saw it as an option and not part of the Off Road package. I did not have it in my truck, I'll replace the factory radio anyway, it does play Mp3's but is pretty much junk. Go to your local (large) news stand and I think Consumer Reports has an Auto Guide that lists the invoice prices. I also looked at the Nissan but it seemed cheaply made and did not have the resale or reputation of Toyota.
When it comes down to it, they don't have to sell it to you.
You don't have to buy it. How much should they make on a $27,000 truck? $100? I doubt that, even if I paid $1000 to-much as profit I did not feel cheated.

TOYOTA has a rebate going on for all 2006 Tacoma's
Get $2,500 cash back on a new 2006 Tacoma
If you can still find the 2006 you want this is a huge reduction.
Feb 16, 2007 (10:20 pm)
Boy, the good old routine on walking out of the dealer to get the deals you want works most of the time I guess.
It looked you got a signaficant amount of money off the access cab!
What did you show to the dealer for them to say "ok I'll sell you this amount about invoice"?
I know tacoma is a very popular truck, but i see them everywhere online and dealers,
They still compete each other for the truck.
NJ has ghetto cities where tax is only 3.5 % as opposed regular 7%
It was 6% befiore until the governor raised it!!! DAMN U!!!
I guess i also need to run this with my insurance to find out how much is this going to cost me!
I dont think there's any 2006 tacoma around for the those rebates!

On the west coast (California) they charge sales tax depending where you live, not where you buy. If I were you I would start with figuring out which truck you wanted, what options and packages, color etc. Then try to find out the invoice. If you can post those details I'll try and post the invoice.
Then contact some dealers via the internet in your area. I started with sending other dealers within 100 miles of where I live with my lowest price.
I just saw a story on the web about how NJ had the highest car insurance in the nation.
Some dealers won't want to give a lowest price until you commit to buy, which I found to be odd. For example in Ventura Ca the dealer came right out and told me "you need to commit to buy before I give you any prices". Who ever heard of that, being forced to commit to say YES you'll buy the truck and then they start to give prices. I walked when I got wind of this. Most dealers when contacted via the web gave me pretty low competitive prices and from those I was able to narrow it down to what was a fair price.
Im sure their are still 2006's sitting out there, while not many this is why Toyota offers the $2500 rebate to clear these last remaining trucks. Any dealer can do a truck search and find that last truck, then do a dealer trade for it.

well, now I live in central jersey, pretty close to nyc, in a couple of weeks I'm moving down to south jersey for office transfer and moving in with the girlfriend,
There is a town in South jersey called Vineland, where sales tax is only 3.5%
Only the Poor community get that deal! Paterson, and Elizabeth are also the only towns in new jersey gets that deal too.
Of course there's a toyota dealer in vineland, NJ so i can save some money on that but i drove by it one day, Talk about run down, beat up trashy dealer!!! But hey, is a dealer
I'm sure they are shady!!
I want the Crew Cab 4x4 with Trd-Off rd package plus the tow package.
Color radiant red! Or Black Mica!
NJ is # 1 highest insurance in the nation and #1 in property tax! Politicans f-ed it all up!!! I kinda want to move out of the state sometimes thou.
I went to a dealer on sunday to see the truck, you can't even tell what yr it is because the sticke doesn't say it.
On the Nissan sticker said what yr it was but not the tacoma! I think the only way to tell is to open the door and look at the side panel
Oh if the dealer around here trying to commit me to buy to the truck in order to get price! I'll give them the finger and walk away!
Anyway, I'm not in a super rush to get the truck! I really dont know when i want to get it. I'll wait as long as August for the clearance time. I want to say more money for a huge down on it.
what did u do? buy the truck whole? finance with trade?
