What is an "in and out" deal?Guess I missed that. But yeah I never trade in either. It's too easy to sell a car on Ebay, Yahoo, Cars.com, Craigslist etc.. I like to do "In and Out" deals and get out of the taxes. After reading that again it says these incentives will not be available on the Crewmax??? I'm guessing that tune will change come 3rd quarter results.
Are they only granting the extra 1k to those who are trading in? The article says "Unfortunately, many interested consumers are in a negative equity situation with their competitive product that they're looking to trade-in," but I didn't take that to mean "only available if you're trading in".It's too bad that they are limiting the extra incentives to those who have trade-ins. I never trade in cars or trucks. I certainly never buy another vehicle to replace one if it hasn't been paid off yet. There is usually a friend or family member to sell the old one to at a discounted price.
One of the other articles on incentives said that people weren't able to buy a Tundra because they were upside-down on their current vehicles. So, Toyota is going to give them $1000 to help out the situation?
I'm just going to wait until summer. Estimates show gas will hit a national average price of $3.35/gallon. This means California prices will be closer to $3.60/gallon within the next 3 months. I'm guessing there will need to be some incentives at that point to get people to buy them.When will they have incentives for the crewmax.I want to buy one soon but i am hesitating cause i think their will be incentives soon what do you guys think or heard for the crewmax?
Best way I can describe it is like this. You sell your car out right to someone. Purchase a new vehicle from x dealer and have them handle the paperwork for your old car transaction. They essentially take it in as trade-in (but at your price!!! )and give you the tax credit for it. And that could be alot of money saved depending on your car. They then sell it right back to that someone you found on your own. Some car dealerships charge anywhere from 200 to 300 bucks for this type of deal. But I have always saved thousands because of it. Im sure there is more to it but thats how I understand it. I've done it alot of times.What is an "in and out" deal?
Just go buy a car out of the newspaper for $100...it can be an old junker, doesn't even need to run. Just bring the title to the dealer and tell them if they want your trade-in, they're going to have to tow it in. Then tell them you need AT LEAST $1100 for it (even if you only get $800, you're still $800 ahead).It's too bad that they are limiting the extra incentives to those who have trade-ins.

You're right. I went into my local dealer on the very FIRST day he had Crewmax's and I rather easily negotiated $500 over invoice. And I wasn't even warmed up yet . I'm at my negotiating best about 30 minutes after they insult my intelligence, which is usually within 15 minutes of beginning to discuss price. I have no doubt I could have purchased right at invoice. My plan is to negotiate a purchase at invoice AND get about a $2k rebate from Toyota. That would bring my actual purchase price to about 2k below invoice. I'm thinking this scenario could occur in the next 2-4 months.Just a side note. You can buy a Tundra for invoice or less now. No one in the world has to pay MSRP. EVER. Sure its a bit more of a pain in the *** to haggle or simply shop around until you get a cooperative dealer. But Please never think you EVER have to pay MSRP.
