    Hi,
    I'm from France. I came here for work 2 years ago. I bought my old car at an auction with a colleague just after a couple days I was here.

    So I NEVER bought a new car before. I want to buy a double cab/sport pckg tacoma. I am also a first time buyer.

    I've looked at Power cerritos website to check out the deals they offer.

    I plan to buy the car with a large down payment. Actually I could pay cash, but I have been told that in the US buying a car can be a good way to build my credit. So I want to make a large deposit to be accepted and begin my credit.

    I have several questions like
    -how much is the average rebate I can get off negociation on that type of car? I've seen prices around $26K on their website.
    -is the price they label w/ or w/ state tax?

    I'd love to hear some advices, cause a lot of things a really different here :) :)

    thanks guys

    I bought a red 1007 Prerunner SR5 with the towing package here in Raleigh,NC for about $23,600. Here in the southeast, then apply a $635 documentation fee due to some distribution agree between Southeast Toyota Dealers and Toyota. That seemed to be the sticking point. I'm just glad the process is over. Now I can enjoy my truck. :)

    Excuse me. That was a 2007 Prerunner SR5. 1007 would be a really OLD truck!! :)
  • A rather rare truck in California. 5 in the whole state. Seriously.

    MSRP was $17,120.
    With a $500 SoCal rebate, without sales tax and DMV fees I paid $15,356.
    I wrote a check for $16,872.

    Mossy Toyota in sunny San Diego.
  • I have recently been informed by two internet salesmen in the St Louis area that a 2007 2wd Prerunner with the Sport package is not available in the Midwest. Has anyone found this to be true?

    Got a call yesterday from my local dealer...claimimg end of the month deals???. Have been looking at a 07 Radiant Red Tacoma 2WD Double Cab TRD Offroad, Towing package, all weather mats. Dealer just got one in from port with 6 miles.

    Long story short at 9:30 last night ended up with this deal.
    Sticker was $26985.00
    Ended up getting it for 24001, add tax $300 and Tag $95 which gets me to $24400. Minus the $1000 rebate ended up $23400 OTD.

    Wondering if I did OK with price...Thanks

    Dear vince13

    I am looking to buy a truck similar to yours. Can you tell me where, which dealer you get your truck from, and if possible, may be their phone number as well? I am a first time buyer and don't have experience but it seems like you get a reasonable deal. May be someone more experience than I am can give you more feedback.
    Thanks

    Dear jcarx and all others:

    I am a first time buyer and looking for a Tacoma double cab preruuner sport package or with just a package#1. Have you bought your truck yet and for what price if I may ask? Do you have the phone number or the dealer that you would recommend.

    What price I should expect? If anyone has experience, please give me some advice.
    Thanks

    Hi Curtis416:

    I am in the market for the truck with similar options like yours. Can you give me the name and phone number of the dealer where you got your truck from?
    Thanks!

    uncalumnus, which dealership did you go to? I'm in the area, looking for a tacoma DC 4WD, off-road package. Want leather but will probably have to get that installed. How close did you come to invoice minus rebate on that deal?
  • uncalumnusuncalumnus Posts: 11
    I went to Fred Anderson Toyota. It was around the middle of June. They didn't seem to have a lot of the models I was looking for. They do have agreements to find the model you want. I don't know if they do that if it is negotiable. They sticker with fees and all was around $26,500. There was a $1000.00 rebate. I used the consumer reports pricing report. The dealer was using the KBB site to reference pricing to me. I ended up about 1% above invoice plus the delivery fee before the rebate. I don't know if I got a good deal, but I'm glad it is over. I was able to work a few extras to the deal without a charge, so I guess I'm pleased. I was surprised at the interest rates avail. I have very good credit, but could only get around 6%.
  • Well I ordered a 2007 2wd Access Cab Pre-runner today from Pappas Toyota in St Peters MO with the following options:

    PY - Sport Package
    TO - Towing Package
    CF - Carpeted floor mats and door sill protectors

    The KBB value of this vehicle was $23,432. I got the vehicle for $23,800.

    Thanks for the info unc. They've got a DC 4wd that's been sitting there more than 2 months that I liked first time I went there. I'm out of town, when I get back I may see if they want to move it.

    Rice Toyota in G-boro does deals thru ebay and it looks like they have both good stock and good deals on Toyotas. May check there too

  • need to buy a tacoma extended cab in the next two weeks absolutely. I am in SE Massachusetts. want the two wheel drive, automatic, 4-cylinder. willing to pay for the sr5 package also since it sounds like most all come that way. have checked kelley, edmunds, and a bunch of the other internet places. all I end up with from the internet contacts is a salesman trying to get me in the dealership to 'talk'. frustrating, but I need to get it done. anyone with experience with good dealerships in this area?

    Congratulations. Sounds like you really got a good deal. What part of the country if you don't mind me asking? Did the truck have the short bed or long bed? I am up in CT and have looked at similiar vehicles and semiliar MSRPs but not that kind of sales price. Did you have to haggle for awhile? Thanks for the information and once again..CONGRATS!
  • kenmorekenmore Posts: 5
    no budging any lower than what i got. I live in the midwest. the truck had short bed. i don't think they make a long bed with the off road package. i think it's only sport with long bed. i got it as a first offer internet price. no haggle no negotiation.

    you should request "quick quotes" via the web to individual dealers in your area. blanket the area to see if a good deal comes up. this deal was the dealer's initial offer.
  • aaronhiaaronhi Posts: 8
    Thanks for the reply. I have just really started to search but the last 3-4 vehicles we have bought have been through "internet sales." The only problem I see up here in CT in less selection. Example: 37 Tacomas at a Toyota dealership in Austin, TX., 5 at Toyota dealership in Connecticut.
  • 08 Tacoma Double Cab
    Black
    TRD Sport
    Towing package
    Carpeted Mats
    Bed Mat

    $29074 plus TTR

    I had a deal for an 07 for $1000 less but dealer could not find a 07 black TRD Sport. I lose the 500 cash back and they charged me 500 more for the 08.
  • 2007 Tacoma

    TRD Off Road
    CF Floor Mats
    TO Towing Package
    DZ Deluxe Sound System w/ 6 CD Changer

    I paid 28321 which was 23821 cash and $4500 on a trade in.

    What do you guys think? Did I get a good deal? Invoice on the truck was 27, 603 and they wouldn't budge past $500 over. I am located in the Pacific Northwest.

    Thanks
  • I have contract for an '07 DC V6 4X4 longbed with Sport package, tow package, deluxe stereo and floor mats for $28,072 before TTR(MSRP $31,054). The dealer could not locate an '07 so I am now waiting for an '08... I am assuming that I will be getting it for the same price plus $140 since the MSRP only went up by that amount. That price was not including a factory rebate.
  • Tacoma has been selling that much that the 07 are all gone??
    WTF!!!
    What the hell?!?!
    I guess they wont work with me when i decide to get one in a couple of months!
  • It depends if they were quoting you a price including rebate. The $500 rebate is only good on 07's.
  • Just bough an 07 SR5 PreRunner DBLCAB
    CF
    and the 6 disc changer.. $23,100 Sticker 26,200

    Love it! Why did I wait so long to buy one.. Bought 8/4/07 Tomball, TX

    only regret: I really should have seriously considered the 4x4... These things really make you wanna go off-road.

    -Sam
  • anyone know which of the toyota dealers in san diego will give the best deals on the tacoma (at invoice).
  • that pricing was without the rebate ;)
