Been reading the forum for a while and decided to try and take the plunge myself.
Disclaimer; I have already reached out directly to @Jrouleau426 and although he didn’t have exactly what I was looking for he was very friendly and helpful. From everything I’ve read on here seems like a very competent broker.
I decided to do some digging around locally and reached out to several regional dealerships via e-mail and also began the negotiation ‘tactics’ with several to see what and where I would be should I go at this sans a broker. Wow, there really are some characters in the auto sales industry. Even with the current Pandemic I got loads of “Come on in and let’s talk about it” or “the terms might get better if were face to face”. I politely declined all of those offers and stuck to my guns on e-mail only until we can reach an agreement on price and lease terms.
Fast forward through the muck and mire and this is the best offer I have on the table right now. It appears it’s somewhat difficult to break the 10% off MSRP with Tacomas, at least in my limited experience.
I have written confirmation that it’s zero drive off.
I’m curious how they are making it work on their end - I can’t seem to make the calculator match up - or if they are going to try something nefarious when I arrange to come in and pick up?
Please let me know know if I missed anything glaring. I’d appreciate some feedback.
