  • Yes, they changed the numbers before September 1.
  • I moved your MPG post to our newly reactivated Toyota Tundra discussion, since this topic is just for purchasing experiences. You can click on my link to check for any responses.

    I offer a car buying service and I have recently ordered an 05 Tundra Limited 4X4 (MSRP- $36843). I was able to negotiate the dealer down to $31,900 on an ordered unit!
  • Was that for a Double Cab, Access Cab or what?

  • Just turned down an offer of $21,675 for a 2005 Tundra SR5 6M V6 Access Cab (final cost of $20,675 after $1000 rebate). It had the Styled Steel Wheels (ST) and Chrome Wheel Arch Molding(JU) options. The offer is basically the invoice price after you take into account the extra ~$600 of region distributor charges (I'm in Louisiana) added to the invoice. I would have taken it, but they only offered $3000 on my trade (I wanted $5500 for the trade).
    BTW, this is in New Orleans if anyone is interested.
  • One other point, for the Tundra 6M SR5 access cab, I called Geico for a quote on a 7yr/100,000 mile warranty. Their quote was $44 per 6 months. I called them before going to the dealership -- I figured the Geico quote would be less than whatever the dealership would offer me.

    The way Geico works an extended warranty is that it is included in your insurance payment (i.e. the $44 per 6 months). The problem I see with a Geico warranty is that you have to keep Geico insurance or else you lose your warranty (and Geico's not hesitant to drop you if you have too many claims). The nice thing is that you're not paying for a warranty you don't use, should you sell the car say 5 years from now.
  • Interested in knowing what prices are being paid for 2005 Tundra 4x4 Double Cab Limiteds with leather, etc.
  • I am going to purchase a new vehicle,I am torn between the new F-150 supercab and the Toyota Tundra access cab 4x4.. any suggestions?? Pro's or

    Con's. Thank you
  • I have had a 150, but I recently got the toyota you mentioned. The toyota feels tighter more solid and I love the the ride not sloppy and not vibrating your teeth. Dont be afraid of the big t 4X4 I love mine.

    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.
