Toyota Tundra General Shopping Questions

edited March 2014 in Toyota
Hi all. I own a window cleaning bus. here in San Diego. And while doing the windows for the Toyota dealership I was at today the customer relations manager came out to chat with me about the new Tundra because she knew I wanted one. She then told me that they just came out with either low APRs or a rebate on them. Then one of the managers came out and told me that Toyota is also running lease specials on them. This program just started today Feb. 9th. Unfortunately I was very busy and didn't have time to get the details. Has anyone else heard anything? This is for the region that includes Southern California.

    Is this for the So. Cal region and if it is, is it on the 4.7 or 5.7? Also, where did you get this info from?
  • gmctruckgmctruck Member Posts: 186
    If you go to Toyota's website, you can find out what special deals and inventory is available in your specific region or zipcode area. Click on Build and Price Your Toyota and it will ask for your zipcode.
  • anythngbutgmanythngbutgm Member Posts: 4,277
    I would guess that the deal is for the 4.7 as the 5.7 is "HOT" at the moment. It'll be a while before incentives are added to sell that badboy.

    Thanks for the info. My buddy is going to look at them this weekend and I am graciously tagging along :blush:
  • dzgeardzgear Member Posts: 5
    Nope. That lease deal isn't for So. Cal. But I did get it straight from the horses mouth that there are finance and lease specials available for So. Cal dealerships. Just nothing is posted yet on Toyota's website. :confuse: Hmmm.... I'll keep looking and post when I find something.

    I have not heard of such deal until now. Nevertheless, it sounds pretty interesting. The Toyota website has all the details you need about the best Toyota financing deals.

    A dealer has an '03 Tundra V6 manual tranny Access Cab with 49,000 miles on it. He'll let it go for $18,000 however I'm concerned that it doesn't have the tow package on it.

    I want to trailor a 14ft fiberglass boat and Dilly trailor with it. The dealer indicates that the truck doesn't need anything other than the trailor hitch because its a manual tranny. He says its already wired and can tow up to 5,300 lbs as it is.

    Am I being told the truth?
  • apptunapptun Member Posts: 18
    It will tow the boat just fine. Seems like a high asking price to me. I would shop around. Is it a 4X4?
  • 12ga12ga Member Posts: 9
    Yes it's a 4x4 with 4-wheel ABS, alloy wheels, bed liner, sliding rear window, power door locks, and single CD player.

    I've been shopping but am having difficulty finding any low-mileage Tundra's with manual trannies around here.
  • apptunapptun Member Posts: 18
    They are asking absolute premium for your truck. Offer them 90% and prepare to own it, I am not an expert but the V8 automatic will get about the same mileage as the manual V6 and has more towing capacity. I believe that the trans cooler is standard. I have your truck in an 02 with the V8 and 50,000 miles.I tow 6000 pounds of horses and trailer on a weekly basis. I have a class IV receiver hitch, beefed up rear springs and electric trailer brakes. I stay away from the mountains but otherwise it performs satisfactory. Good luck.
  • 12ga12ga Member Posts: 9
    They were asking $20,485 and I negotiated down to $18,000. puts the book value suggested retail value at $20,140. I'll decide when I see the vehicle in person tomorrow whether it's worth $18k.

    Thanks for your help and information.
  • apptunapptun Member Posts: 18
    My 02 books at 19,800 average retail, in excellent condition, according to KBB. If I could get that for it, I could have it empty of my possessions in about 15 minutes. Around my neck of the woods, the V6 manual would be a hard truck to sell. I say that you should buy what you want, but offer low, walk away and come back in a day or two. I do wish you well. Thanks.

    Have you looked at the new Tundra ? There is a 3,000 rebate on the base model of the new Tundra. So, the price difference between what this guy is asking for and the new Tundra won't be that great, plus it is a brand spanking new truck.
  • 12ga12ga Member Posts: 9
    I haven't looked at the new Tundra because I didn't want to take out a loan. I've got $18k of which $16k came from a insurance settlement for an '02 Dakota Quad Cab I totaled last month.

    Maybe I ought to take a quick look to see what the new Tundra is going for...
  • 12ga12ga Member Posts: 9
    Holy smokes they did away with the manual tranny!? What the heck is the deal with that?

    I would like to know if any readers in New England or the Northeast US purchased a 2007 Tundra 4X4 Reg.Cab with the Standard,(meaning short) bed.

    The two largest Toyota dealers in Mass., Ira and Boch have told me you cannowt get a standard bed in new England, only the long bed is available.

    Also, cna a Tundra be factory ordered?

    I was told this was not possible also.

    Any information woudl be helpful.

    Thank you all for reading this.
  • anythngbutgmanythngbutgm Member Posts: 4,277
    I tried to find one back in March when my buddy bought his. I didn't see any on the lots and one sales guy told me the configuration didn't exist. It's probably a cost saver to keep the frame length consistant without having to resort to a shorter bed just to accomodate the short box/single cab config.

    Others in the Edmunds forums have claimed that the configuration does exist and is availible in other parts of the country so maybe it is possible to order one up.

    That configuration with the 5.7 and 2WD would make for a nice sport truck build-up!

    I recently bought a new Tundra and the finance manager offer me the 7 years or "75000" miles for the price of $0.70/day. I was told by the sale manager that the warranty was 7 years or 100k. When I signed the paper, I did not ask and assumed that it was the 7 years or 100k because he did not mention the mileage, only the 7yrs. I found out over the weekend when I took some times to read through everything. I went back to the finance manager and asked to take the warranty out since it was only 15k more than the company warranty. He promised to change it to 7 yrs or 100k for me. My question is: How do I find out if this warranty is truly 7 yrs or 100k? Who should I contact to check out this extended warranty on this truck or any Toyota dealer should be fine? Thanks for your assistance.

    In July Toyota had rebates upto either $3000 or $3500 on the Tundra, when do they usually post the new rebates for the next month? I live in Dallas/Fort Worth.

    Thats the problem with Ira and Boch they want to sell you whats in stock at that time. Also you might have had the wrong salesperson working for you. I know of 3 reg cab short bed Tundras all with TRD Off road pachage with bucket seats. All at Toyota of Nashua in Nashua NH. The only dealer in New England with it own Truck Center so you know you will have someone selling you the truck that knows everything about it.

    Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? I was in the process of buying this truck, I returned it after learning it was not a toyota package. They originally told me it was a limited edition package for 2007. I called around and nobody had heard of it. I would still like to give the Toyota a try however, I am a bit worried. Thanks in advance for any input!!!!

    I need some advise!!!!! I want to buy a Tundra soooooooooo bad but can't afford anything near new. Been looking on Ebay and see many that I like but even these are alittle more than what I think I can afford. I've seen others in the 2001 and on model year that have 100,000 miles plus on them but am not sure about them because of the mileage.
    My questions are:
    1. How safe is buying from Ebay?
    2. Should I stay away from the higher mileage Tundras?
    3. Are there certain years of Tundras that are better than others?
    4. Any advise or suggestions would really be appreciated.
    Thanks for any and all replies.

  • sircharles3sircharles3 Member Posts: 2
    With all the combo's the Tundra's have for 2008, I was wondering what the major differences were between all the packages of features. Limited vs SR5 seem more obvious, but for the extra $$$, what do you get between the Tundra Grade vs the SR5? Even the Tundra brochures dont really help. Thanks!
  • mrbigsmrbigs Member Posts: 1
    As the '08 models all have limited slip differential as a standard feature, can someone explain the operation of LSD vs. 4x4 operation?

    In particular on the '05 model, as I understand it, LSD is available when in 2WD. Now when you switch off LSD and then select 4WD, do you now have 2 open differentials (1 in front and 1 in the rear) without LSD? Which is like saying you have
    1 wheel w/ traction in front and 1 wheel w/ traction in the rear under slippery conditions.

    Along these lines, why do you think edmonds tmv pricing discounts by -$431 the added option of LSD on a 4x4 '05 model? Is there some disadvantage to LSD on a 4x4 model when configured as an option like on an '05 model?

    Thanks in advance.

    I just purchased 08 tundra grade and I wish I had waited to get SR5 model like I have had in the past but hard to find not loaded up.
    SR5 has privacy rear glass, sliding rear window, 6 CD changer, bucket seats with driver side power, tow package, tilt/telescope wheel, fog lights,
    power heated side mirrors, chrome grill, mud flaps, I'm missing some I'm sure.
    MSRP is not that much higher and lot of options. If you opt for 4.7 SR5 vs 5.7 grade its about 1k more for the SR5.

    I'm looking to buy a new Tundra. Just wondering what's the different between Texas edition and TRD. My co-worker told that TRD is a better buy than Texas edition. Could you give me some info on this? Thanks...
