Toyota Tundra Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • ocautoseekerocautoseeker Posts: 425
    Commented on the break-down of fees numerous times and just too tired right now to type a full response. Go back and read my post (#522). This should hopefully give you the answers you're looking for.

    A reporter from a national newspaper is looking to speak to consumers who just purchased a new Toyota Tundra within the past six months and whether it had anything to do with gas prices. If you’re interested in speaking to the reporter, please contact Chintan Talati at with your daytime contact information no later than June 23, 2008.

    I heard a rumor that there is another $5000 incentive in the gulf states of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi on the tundra in addition to the 4k already offered. Can anyone confirm this?

  • doknydokny Posts: 1
    i would be very interested to know if this additional incentive is true. i am in louisiana and i've been on the fence on whether to get a tundra or a honda ridgeline. this would definitely make the decision a lot easier.

    i was on the lot of a dealer today who had a big sign that said $6,000 off of MSRP on all tundras.

    Check out the discussion on the Chevy silverado prices paid where this is discussed. 10K off is what one is looking for on these vehicles (foreign or domestic) more or less. (for a 33k+ truck) Your clue is the big sign for 6000 off msrp. Advertised prices are usually nothing to write home about.

    Good luck

  • Hi my deal constist of 2008 crewmax 4x4 sr5 for $28,900, msrp is 35,053 I feel like the market should allow more off the dealers prices. I was thinking of going with the 0% becuase they allow for an extra $1000 to be used towards downpayment. My doc fees are $293 and I haven't been hit with any other yet. Looking for other buyers input on thier experiences with Boch Toyota of norwood ma. Thanks

    It looks like Toyota just sweetened their incentives to 0% APR, plus $2,000 cash back, plus $2,000 cash back for "qualified business owners". During the month of June I was able to get a local dealer price to $200 below "cost"; roughly $28,300 for a 5.7L V8, Double Cab w/ a number of options added in; MSRP was about $37,000. - My question now is how strictly dealers hold to limiting the additional cash back to "qualified business owners" and how they define that term. - As far as Boch Toyota goes, a buddie of mine bought his 2005 Tundra from them and he said they were very good to deal with. I don't have any personal experience with them.
  • Hello, thanks for the input. I ended up with Woburn Toyota, Crew max 5.7, sr5, for 28,000 with $411 in Admin, added stainless side steps (600) back up camera ( 640) Rhino guard (600) and weather floor mats (120). The one add on I purchased was the 7/75000 warranty, I usually repair my own vehicles but with the newer ecu and software I didn't want to regret a minor cost down the road. I also used the 0% finance for 5 years with the $1000 extra consider down payment assistance. I traveled to six area dealers to see if they wanted to beat the deal, no takers on the 30th. I dealt with Joe Witt, and found him to be very good, knowledge on the truck and he gave me parts at cost to them. Thanks for your input good luck

    2 or 4WD ? Did the 28k include the add ons?

    Sounds like a nice Rig......

  • Hi, No the adds on's were on top of the 28,000, and the vehicle is a 4wd. I started by traveling to dealers and see what they would accept for a price without options, so I could compare their prices accurately. Boch was the first to offer the 28,000, and the only other dealer to match it was Woburn. They also allowed the highest trade value $2100 for a 95 dodge ram. Thanks again.
  • I was at a dealer yesterday in Maine. They are offering $8500 off list. Is this enough? What are your experiences. I want to buy, but not overpay.

    08 Toyota Tundra DBL CAB 4X4 SR5 5.7L
    List $34,547.00
    Step Tubes - Double Cab $566.50
    Bedliner $499.00
    Chrome Exhaust Tip $99
    Rebates $8500
    Sales Price $27,290.50
    Tags $24
    Admin Fee $299.00

    Have any of you gotten lower numbers and how much? I want the best deal possible.

    Money is tight and I don't have any to waste.

    Your deal seems to be in the same ballpark as the quote I got a couple of weeks ago. I was interested in a couple of other options and can't reconcile the differences right not, though. Does your deal include 0% financing and/or the business owner's discount?

    I'm in the same situation regarding my "free cash" position and I don't want to overpay for a vehicle in these economically uncertain times.

  • I wasn't shopping that model but your prices seem reasonable, better than down here. My only other advice is to check with dealers by stopping in and going through the sit down (sales manager preferably), and go through the numbers. Bring either a lap top or calculator to double check their numbers. If you go in the a. m. I found it was easier to find a manager and lay out the deal I needed him to beat. In a short time (30 minutes) you will know if they are worth your time or not. I picked a monthly payment using the edmunds calculator to know what I should expect to have for a payment with the discount and sales tax included, money down. That way when they are running all those numbers trying to confuse you my final question is what is the monthly payment? Knowing if they weren't hiding fees or overcharging me the payment should be X. Afterward I included my options trying to settle on cost to dealer. You could do the same thing by internet but the price might increase or the truck won't be their when you go in. Through my reading it seemed the dealer is more anxious to lower his price at the end of the month to meet quotas. Hope this helps
  • It was to be a cash deal and yes it included the business owners discount.

    Get 10-20 email bids last week of the month. July and August should be a shooting gallery for these vehicles. The market for trucks is slower than mud. If you look up a used 07 version of the new 08 you are looking at via with avg miles you will probably find it has a trade in value of about 14000 or more off msrp for about a 33k truck. You may actually find it hard to trade it in for $16000 off msrp for another vehicle with the gas situation the way it is. As one could see 10000 off msrp isn't exactly giving the truck away for a new one.

    Also do the same with competing Chevy and Ford models. The used truck market for 05s-07s could be astonishing if tried. With all the trade-ins repos and trucks coming off lease one may be surprised at how low below kbb *trade-in* value (not dealer retail) a good lo-mi 07 with remaining warranty could be had.

    Good luck

    This will be my first truck I ever purchased. I hope you will help me choose the best deal with the best options.

    I got a quote for a Tundra Base 5.7L V8 Double Cap Long Bed for $27,142 out of the door including 0% (approved) for 60 months or 24,142 out of the door cash price.
    The price before tax and fees is: $25,328 with 0.0 % finance or $22,328 cash price before taxes and fees.
    The truck has only 46 miles on it. I drove it and it seems to be fine.
    Added options: Tow mirrors, upgrade styled steel wheels, heavy duty battery, starter, etc.
    Bed liner, carpets.
    I decided to go for the long bed because it fits the large Yamaha Grizzly (82") . Regular bed is only 78". Long bed is 90".

    I'm note sure if your looking at a good deal. SUV's and big trucks are sitting on lots all over the country and are going cheap. They are loaded with incentives. Just last week, local paper, Tundra grade 4.7 was 10k off (6k rebate,4k dealer discount.)
    Thats a 30k truck for 20k. Today, I think you can do better.
    Also, 3k rebate or 0% financing? If your watching payment, shop interest rates. Banks also getting competative. Get a good low rate AND take the 3k rebate.
    (I think the rebates are better than that, check it out) Good luck.
  • ocautoseekerocautoseeker Posts: 425
    What's the total MSRP on the truck?

    Check out and plug in your zip. This will tell you the incentives in your region. Currently, in socal, if you opt for the 0%, there is also an additional $1000 bonus cash. If you bypass the financing, there is a $5500 rebate. You get either or, but not both.

    Get me the number on your truck and I'll tell you what I think.

    Thank you for the information. The dealer offered $4000 rebate or $1000 with 0% finance. The sticker price is $28,658 wants $25,328 with 0% finance. He showed me his invoice price and he claimed he wants to sell it without making any profit. May be he gets incentives directly from Toyota.
    I have a problem with the Tundra. I made some research and found out that bed bouncing is a big problem with the new Tundra. You can watch few films from several Tundra owners documenting bed bouncing. This is the main reason why I am not going to buy a Tundra at this time. I may get the right price but the bouncing problem is a serious issue when driving on concrete pavements.

    I am actually considering 2009 FORD F-150. It may be available by the end of this year.

    What do you think?
  • aalsherriaalsherri Posts: 69
    Thank you for the information.

    The MSRP is $28,658 It has very few dealer installed options which is good. I feel the car has all the important options installed. Long bed, strong engine, tow mirrors, bedliner, etc.
    They may sell it for 20K.
