Rate my deal... 2016 Platinum
Looking through some of these posts, I didn't see any Platinum Tundras.
After a lot of looking and tire kicking, I found a 2016 Platinum about 2.5 hours from my house, that I picked up on 12/31/16. It was a demo and had 5,200 miles on the truck before my test drive. I added another 8 miles before I purchased the vehicle. Did all my negotiations through emails, texts and phone calls.
Total MSRP = $52,999 - (includes running boards, wheel locks, paint protection film, bed extender, bed liner with rail system and remote engine starter, destination/delivery fee)
Discounted = $6,799
Price = $46,200
Rebate = $1,500
Final price $44,700.
I found my own financing at 1.99% since they wouldn't do the Toyota 1.9% with the rebates, but I felt like I got a decent deal. According to my buddy, that is in the business, $44,500 was the wholesale price for a 2016 with 5K miles. It was my target price so when I got close I had to take the deal.
The best I could find on a 2017, that wasn't a demo was $49,029 (includes $1,000 rebate) and the MSRP was $52,339.
I also found one other demo, a 2017 with 1,600 miles, but after numerous emails they got down to $49,366 after rebate, but it had an MSRP of $53,529 and included Remote Engine Starter, Brushed Stainless Steel Stepboard, and a TRD Pro Performance Dual Exhaust System. It was actually the one I wanted, but I couldn't justify another $4,666 just for the exhaust and sidesteps. Actually it took 2 weeks of emails for them to get to the $49,366, they started with $50,990, which was a complete joke.
if anyone needs additional info, shoot me a PM.
