    I bought a 2005 Tundra Access Cab SR5 V6 5Sp Auto with Captains Chairs, Color Keyed Overfenders, Styled Steel Wheels,Value Truck Package,from Riverside Toyota in Tulsa. I saw an advertised price of 20,999. I took in a copy of Carson Toyota's web page showing basically the same truck for 20,499. Told them if they would give me that price and the $500 owner loyalty discount I would buy it. No arguments, got the truck for 19999. Took all of 15 minutes. I really recommend this dealership. Another Toyota dealership in Tulsa would not even deal with me. Said they would be 24-26k (MSRP) They even had a 2004 Tacoma ext. cab prerunner that they wanted 22k for. Made the Tundra a no brainer.

    emt27, I'm looking at basically the same truck. Please post the link to the sales ad you used to get that great deal on your Tundra. Thanks!

    Looks like they're not showing the special on the V6 access cab. I'd keep checking their site and when they run a special on the truck you want print it out and take it with you.

    Best of luck.

    I just got a 2005 TRD Double cab 4X4. The local delears were wanting 33000 to 34000. Plus they didn't have the color I wanted so they wanted 1000 extra to ship their truck and traid it for the one I wanted. They also said they wanted to keep the 1500 rebate. I told them to stick it. I got a broker to find me the truck. He found the truck and delivered it for 29995.

    Emt27 thanks for the quick response. I see things have changed at the link you provided. I'll keep an eye on it. I was looking at the new Tacoma but have decided it's too early for me to consider it seriously. I've decided to seek a Tundra as I need a new truck this year. At 0% interest and with tips like yours I should be able to get a sweet deal! I'll, as they say, "keep you posted".
  • I'm about to take delivery of a 2005 Tundra Double Cab.It is loaded with an MSRP of $39185.I'm paying $34046,which includes a $1500 Factory rebate.Champion Toyota-Austin,Texas.

    Just curious why you would be paying so much for a 7/8 scale truck?

    To hear that Toyota sells a pickup for $39K is extremely absurd!
  • mrjjgittesmrjjgittes Posts: 156
    I don't own a Tundra, but I just don't get the 7/8 scale truck reference. Compare the dimensions to any American half ton and it is no smaller. Is the 7/8 comment referencing horsepower on the larger optional v-8's in the US trucks? Say what you want about Japanese trucks, but double cab tundras are just not smaller anymore.

    Let's keep the discussion focused on prices paid and buying experience.
  • Hello, Im new here. Yesterday I purchased a 2005 reg.cab with tilt, cruise,chrome tool box. bedliner.Sticker was 19,950. I traded my 93 nissan with 182k miles. OTD price after rebate was 14,400.The experience was great at this dealership, Walker-Jones in Waycross. The dealer I dealt with thru carsdirect was HORRIBLE!! They were in Statesboro, Ga. Really wanted a access cab but was out of my budget. Sold my 2000 brake eating Tundra for 10,900 at 111k miles and was glad to let her go.Only complaint is the V6 has a lot of noise compared th the V8.

    A week ago I purchased a 2005 Toyota Tundra SR5 Double Cab, 4x2, V-8, automatic trans., tow package, 17" alloy wheels, side curtain airbags system, overhead console w/compass & outside temp. gauge and homelink, Capt. chairs, color keyed overfenders, remote keyless entry, limited slip differential, fog lamps, privacy glass, brushed stainless steel running boards, carpet floor mats w/door sill protectors. I bought the truck at Ron Carter Toyota in Alvin, Tx. and had a wonderful buying experience. Everything went easily and there was no hassle or high pressure tactics used. Even the finance manager was nice and direct and no pressure. I highly reccommend this dealership if your in the area. I paid $27,500 drive out.
  • My son just purchased last night a 2005 Tundra DC 4x4 V8..MSRP was 33,295; invoice was 30,379. Negotiated to 30,000 then subtract the 1500 cash rebate. Resulting in 28,500. Then add back sales tax, title, registration etc. He arrived there about 4:00 pm and was driving it home at 7:00. He was by himself but he did make a couple calls to me during visit for guidance/support. He lives and purchased in Washington DC area.. Told me overall was easy/friendly and they made him feel as though they respected him as a customer!!

    Did that dealer have anymore with the same options? I have been on the lookout for one with the side curtain airbags but they are impossible to find in the New Orleans area. I also would want the TRD offroad pkg as I heard it improves overall suspension and ride. :shades:
  • wolf6151wolf6151 Posts: 3
    Steve, the Tundra Double Cab that I bought was the only one that they had on the lot at the time, but it's a big dealership and they're constantly getting more. I wouldn't think that it would be difficult to find one with the side curtain air bags. There web address is www.roncarter.com and I was treated very nicely. I highly reccommend them. Good Luck.

    I am not happy with the "suicide" doors on my 2005 Tundra v-6, automatic, RWD, Access model. I would prefer the full double cab. What would a fair trade-in amount be? Original MSRP 25,900 and sale price was 24,249. How do they calculate the trade-in on such a new vehicle? I took the 0% interest rather than the rebates. I am trying to find out a fair trade-in and what my negative equity will be.

    Hello, I am pricing out a 2005 Tundra base model. The Dealer did a search for me showing what was available. He showed me an "Inquiry Report Detail" showing both Invoice and MSRP. His Dealer Vehicle base was about $300.00 higher than Edmunds. All of the Options matched Edmunds. The destination matched Edmunds. The report showed the following lines called TDA $227.00, Gasoline $6.00, Dealer Holdback $337.00, Wholesale Financial Reserve $168.00. He claimed his cost was $16333.00 and he would sell $500.00 over cost or $16833.00.
    My questions are what is TDA, should Holdback, TDA, and Wholesale Financial Reserve be figured in to the cost of the vehicle, is $16,833 the true cost of this vehicle to the dealer?
  • Anyone know anything good about the 2006 Tundra???

    I did, no help there either. Doesn't matter now. Too late for help. Thanks for responding.

    My advice is to buy the Tundra over the F-150. I bought a new 05 F150 Crewcab two months ago and put only 2900 miles on it. I just traded it for the Tundra after experiencing problems from the start, e.g. vibration, transmission got stuck in drive, overdrive turns on by itself, shifts hard, rear end shudder, need I go on. :lemon: I lost about $3000 in the deal, dont make the same mistake. Please go read the Problems and Solutions forum here for the F150, vibration is a huge problem.

    Ok, back on topic with this board, I paid about $32,000 against an MSRP of about $33,200 for a 2005 double cab, TRD, SR5. Sounds like I could've negoiated better.

    Just purchased (last night) an Access Cab 4WD Tundra with TRD package (JBL stereo, all weather package, tow package, fogs, limited slip, captains chairs) for:

    List $30,575
    My price: $25,787 - Plus TTL and $100 processing fee

    over $2000 BELOW INVOICE ....

    DarCars Sliver Spring. Deal was end of month special + rebate. Deal went smoothly, no "extras" - just standard $100 processing fee. Only caveat is that at this price they were not so keen to give me a good price on trade in - so I'll have to sell myself.

    Also note that they only have a very small number in stock, I was VERY lucky to get the TRD I wanted ....

    Very very happy with this truck and with this deal - best deal I've ever negotiated on any car I've bought ...

    I was wondering if the rebate for $1500 off V8 Tundra DC that is supposed to end this Monday (5/4) will get extended? Do rebates usually get extended or offered again? I guess I need to know if I should pull the trigger on a deal or If I wait a few more weeks it will still be there.

    I just bought a new Tundra X-SP Double Cab on saturday (4-30).
    List $32,059
    Out the Door $27,250

    I had been looking all over to find a dealer that had one on the lot so I didnt have to wait a week or more.
  • idahoronidahoron Posts: 18
    What is a Tundra X-SP? Ron
  • fslaugtsfslaugts Posts: 36
    I noticed that there is a $2500 rebate on this model. I was wondering what sort of deal I could expect. The selection of that model was very small. It must not be to popular. Might get a better deal on the Tundra than the Tacoma.

    Its a double cab tundra with a sports package. That includes leather, chrome step boards, skid plate, chrome wheels, and X-SP badges. Its nice and sporty if you are willing to give up 4x4.

    I purchased my Tundra on 4/30/05. MSRP was $33,600, plus $600 for the usual song and dance wax and seal job they do. I bought it without a trade, and after rebates, incentives, etc., my pre-tax price was $27,500. Tax, title and other fees brought it back up to $29,500. I felt pretty good about this deal. This a couple of grand below Edmunds published invoice. :) :shades:

    Test Drove Today, Regular cab V8. Sticker was $20,480. Deal was $19500 minus $2500 rebate. I was hoping for better but I didn't like the color and I want to look around some more before I decide. That V8 really had some torque. I currently drive a 4 cylinder protege. Gas mileage kinds of scare's me on the v8. It was 16 city and 18 highway. Options were AC, all weather package, tilt wheel and full wheel covers. Is this a good deal? What should I expect to pay? I would appreciate some input. Thankyou
