  • Hookup at a Toyota dealer?

    I'm considering buying a Toyota, but every place I've ever tried to buy a car in Texas has been inflexible about prices, and because of this, I haven't bought a single car in the state of Texas.

    Do you know a Toyota dealer that's particularly easy to deal with and will work on price? I bought my last three cars in Nebraska, California, and Oklahoma rather than deal with the rapists known as car dealers here in Texas, so I'm willing and happy to travel if it means that I'll get a better price.

    I'll bet you could get a good deal on a new Tundra!

    Call my friend Joe, he used to work @ Toyota of Dallas and got me an older Tundra (when they weren't discounted much) at invoice less rebate. He kept a good relationship w/ the fleet mgr. even after he left.

      Good luck - I hate Toyota dealers. They know their product sells itself, so they put complete slimeballs in oversized suites in the showrooms. Yuk!!!!

                I can make a call to the Fleet Manager here in Stering McCall if you really want something. You can be up front with him about what your looking for and what price you looking to get out the door with. He's cool to work with. He doesn't deal with Customers really anymore, but he will for people I send to him.

                    Good luck. If the title has "CAR" anywhere in the title than it's a code word for whore. CAR dealership, CAR salesman, CAR repair, CAR bodyshop, you get the idea. Hope you find something soon.


                    Note: No offense to anyone in the club who holds one of the above titles....but you know I'm right! JK HA!

                      I have been very happy with the Murano overall. I think we got the gremlin out of it (suspected intermittent compressor lockup), but with my needing to haul clients around in it, I think I'm ready for something with better fuel consumption numbers. That's really the only reason I'm selling it: I just can't choke down 17-22 mpg and $50+ fillups anymore. I always said if anything happened to it that I'd buy another one, and that would still hold true if gas prices hadn't gone up nearly $1/gal since I bought it.

                      Someone convince Nissan to make a hybrid Murano and I'll happily stay in the Nissan family

                        Sondra, I know a reputable guy that regularly buys Toyotas (and Hondas) at car auctions for Texans Credit Union. As long as you're interested in buying used (and getting financing via Texans [we do have one here in Austin]), he guarantees he'll find you a great car at a great price. There are a few caveats, though so PM me if you're interested. (and yes he's 100% legit).
