The sticker for my 2006 had the year clearly in the top portion of the sheet. Perhaps in California the stickers differ as I've seen a few 2007 models which also had the year on the sticker.
You failed to state one important thing (manual or auto transmisson). Also be aware some, (almost every truck I saw) had the floor mats listed on the sticker, so you might get stuck with buying them. Im also told that in 2007 they force you to now buy a $100 first aid kit. So im listing AUTO transmission prices.
2007 Toyota Tacoma 4WD Double V6 AT
$23,126.00 $25,515.00 Base
$2,445.00 $3,045.00 Off Road Package
$645.00 $645.00 Destination
$520.00 $650.00 Towing Package
$126.00 $199.00 Floor Mats and Door Sils
Total the above items for your starting point.
I put down 10K and Toyota financed the rest for 7% interest.
I did not have a trade in.
So if the total below changes from all the figures above it may be due to the first aid kit, however below are the totals I got from online info for the truck you listed.
Base $23,126.00 $25,515.00
Options $3,091.00 $3,894.00
Destination $645.00 $645.00
Total $26,862.00 $30,054.00

yeah, I'll probably take a automatic because the woman can't driver stick. I would like a manual because it saves little bit of gas and down shifting too
So you think i can get the truck for $27000?
I mean if you got it for $100 above invoice. I'm sure i can get this, of course i have to find a Shady salesman to do it.
if you dont mind me asking, how much do you pay a month? and how many yrs?
I have been doing the math, I probably looking for a 3-4 yrs payment. They better not have a penalty if i pay it earlier!!

With $10k down on a balance of $16k I had payments of about $350 a month for 5 years. With Toyota Credit
They don't have a penalty for early payoff.
The prices I listed are WITH auto transmission. I love the 5 speed auto on my Tacoma, with so many speeds you can down shift and up shift with almost the same benefits as a manual transmission. MPG's were not that different from an auto and a manual. I think $27 would be a best deal but anywhere under $28 would be good.

my co-worker sits next to me also looking for a new vehicle. He's brother works for a dealer as a parts manager in Nissan.
He is telling if you dont do the math, they would add in $10 or whatever small amounts to ur monthly payments.
He told me, Pick up trucks interest can be lower because that's how they are. You can get it for 5%. He said the toyota website doesn't have the state added on to your calculation. So he showed me on the edmunds to calculate how it comes down to. Which is not bad... I just need to put a bigger down.
I know the end of the year sales, they would have an awesome APR rates.
Where did u find out about the rebate on the 06? Do you need to buy the vehicle at a curtain time to get this rebate?

For those of you who don't know how to tell what model year a vehicle is, check the tenth digit of the VIN #. If it is 6, it's a 2006 model. If it's a 7, it's a 2007 model. I don't remember all of the letters used from 1981 to 1999, but there were a few letters skipped. Keep one thing in mind, though....if you buy a 2006 model, I would recommend that you buy GAP insurance. The reason being is that this is Feb/March 2007. If you bought a brand new 2006 model truck, left the sales lot, and your truck was hit and totaled on the way home, your truck would be paid off as a 2006 year truck, not as a 2007....basically you will take the hit for a full year's depreciation immediately. Same goes for if you decide you need to sell it in the next few months for some reason. Just something to keep in mind...

I'm in the market for a new truck and have decided on a '07 Tacoma in Silver or Impulse Red.
PreRunner V6 4dr Double Cab 5.0 ft. SB
Sport Package #1
Towing Package (Maybe)
I am using the truck for light hauling - Local shipping and delivery for my business. As well as a second vehicle for me and my family of 4 (plus our Golden Retriever).
Here are my thoughts.. correct me or recommend something if you think it may be helpful.
I did not choose 4X4 since I do not intend to off-road...
I chose the Sport package for the looks and larger wheels and extra goodies it comes with. I think it is a good package for the money.
Do I need towing package? It really is not too much extra $ so I do not care either way...although I doubt I will ever tow anything (but you never know).
Is the JBL system is decent? I prob would not buy after market stereo or add on. So I think I will get the JBL stereo.
Are there any other extras I should get?
Anyone know and good dealers in NC area... I am willing to fly or drive to save some $$??
Thanks in advance.. There is a good finance rate going on here 3.9% .. So I am buying before April 30, 07.

I'm looking to pay around $26,000

After a bit more looking... I may decide against the TRD Sport package. It may sound silly.. but I do not care for the fake hood scoop.
Also after more reading.. I prefer a softer ride and see that the sport model is stiffer suspension.
So now.. I need to decide whether to go for the TRD Off Road ?
