    Just purchased a new 2012 Access Cab 2.7 liter, 4X2, AT, SR5 in Georgia. MSRP was $23,789. Quoted internet price was $22,513 plus $399 Admin fee and tag and title fees plus sales tax.

    Everything went well at the dealership until they tried to add $650 for paint sealant. I just showed the finance guy my internet quote and he took the $650 off.

    Overall I had a great buying experience and I love my new Taco. I could have got the same price without the Admin fee at another dealer but that dealer did not have the color that I wanted and I did not want to wait.

    Sold my 2005 and I'm in the hunt for an Access Cab or Double Cab TRD Offroad/Tow Package. The inventory is very light and I'm having trouble finding exactly what I want. Anybody know if this is in preparation for the release of the 2013's or is it something else?

    Prices for New double cabs SR5 4x4, automatic, loaded:

    Nov. 2005 I purchased an 06 off road package for $26300.
    Oct. 2008 quoted for an 09 sport package, $27657.
    Mar. 2009 quoted for an 09 sport package, $26944.
    Jan. 2010 quoted for a 2010 sport pkg long bed, $29623.

    the upgrades to the Tacoma since 05 have been minimal
  • There is a 97 Tacoma with 220,000 miles down the block from where I live. Five speed , two wheel drive and looks to be in good condition. Asking $ 2,800 for it. The miles on the truck make me wonder if I would be throwing money away . Anyone think this is a good deal ?
  • I would look it over, ask a lot of questions regarding maint. new parts
    if it needs anything, look for leaks burning oil, if you like it low ball him.
    I've seen Toyota's hit 300k miles and I have seen Ford Rangers get up to
    400k miles, you never know what you will find.

    Just boiught a RAV for the wife..I have been looking for a Tacoma, Is this a good deal for a Southern Truck? Seller is pretty firm. Doesn't seem motivated to sell which makes me think it's really a good truck and he really does not want to sell unless he gets his price. Truck has Platnium ToyoCare Cintract for another two year and a few months. "Seems" like a good deal for a unique TRD OR. I don't like the painted fender flares and this one doesn't have them. Special Edition I guess.

  • Any 2015 buyers have data to share?
  • Just stumbled on a dealer in Santa Rosa, California who is providing some pretty decent deals on 2016 Tacomas. I saw a '16 Sport Double Cab 4x4 for $2300 off. Not bad at all for this close to the release of the new model. Best I've seen anyways.

    After flip-flopping between used, certified, and new I decided on a new Tacoma. Aside from the hassles of my 2000 Celica, I realize I cannot handle the repairs and hassles in the short term of a used vehicle. Also, the 2000s saw the cheapening of many vehicles in order to grow the companies, in this case for Toyota to catch up with GM. Paying hyper-inflated prices for some of the worst vehicles of all time would be a terrible idea. There are my current thoughts.

    Can anyone advise on the best time to buy a new Tacoma? I would want a cash incentive. I am in no hurry to buy. A salesman friend of a friend stated to purchase either Memorial Day weekend or in the fall. I am very particular and want a red one and also one without any extras, and I understand they may run out of particular vehicles by the new model year. So perhaps summer is the best time.

    I will have them add heated seats which seemed to be a reasonable price, something like $250. I will go aftermarket for a remote start. I CAN'T WAIT TO HAVE A REMOTE START! (I have had stick shift vehicles since the 1993 Integra.) This will be my first automatic since my 1980 Delta 88. I look forward to not shifting due to back issues.

    Memorial Day sounds like a good plan. Focusing on a particular color/option pack does limit your options a bit unless you are close to several dealers or find a dealer willing to swap with another dealer.

    Aftermarket electrical stuff like remote starts can get flaky in a few years. If you go that route, check out the warranty. Typically dealer installed accessories will fall under the factory warranty but not always.

    Thanks for the advice. The problem I learned was that the dealer remote starter shuts the vehicle off when you open the door. That is unacceptable. I'll get a premium brand and pray from here on out.

    Oh no LOL! At some point Edmund's moderators changed from their nicknames that I have known since the beginning to their real names LOL. So whoever you are "Steve", if in fact that is your real name, it is also great to see the real you. You also appear exactly as I picture a car guy! :smile:

    I can attest that it is him .. I've had the pleasure of meeting him for breakfast a year or so back.

    More of a cheapskate than a car guy though.

    You know that idling from that remote start is just going to waste gas and mark my words, you'll need electrical work done on it or the ECU in five years. :p

    LOL - Yes, but him WHO? What was Stever's prior nickname? That's what I know people by hehe. I am guessing Mr. Shiftright as I think he helped with pricing advice, but most other names are now waning from my mind unfortunately.

    Now I have no concern about gas use. I need to be warm! Are you out west? Probably don't understand :)
    The ECU is scary though. Based on your post I have read up on this and it sounds like individuals and amateurs are installing these without knowledge of what is involved. My mechanic is a genius so at least I do not have that concern. High power connections do need special treatment! Hrm...

    At one point before I was hired on as a community leader, I used my real name as my login. Then when I got mod tools, I deleted that history. For a while there I was stever@edmunds. Before that I was just "Steve", back in the Townhall days. I started in Dec. 2000 and I think you had left by then.
