    I wouldn't want a 1 y/o truck with extensive repair/paint. If I was offered a reasonable financial alternative for a truck I wanted I'd take it.

    That said, in order to evaluate the alternative I'd be looking at the real dollars involved between the 2021 and 2022. "Payments about the same" can be less than revealing of the actual cost.

    Tell them to give you an allocation of a 22 TRD Pro at MSRP and you keep your truck until it arrives.

    Then tell them to give you a Platinum at invoice, you should get something for what you went through.

    I like that the dealer is "helping" you. But the only way they would be helping you, is if there is $$$ in it for them. If they give you what you paid for it ( 100% of your otd price right?) they're still going to profit when they sell that for more than they are giving you (given the market for the venerable V8). Then, when they sell you a 22 at full MSRP, they will profit again, but MASSIVELY!!! the ole double dip! Fortunately you have options with this dealership that both Corporate, and the purchased dealership refused to do anything about.
    Now it's up to what you actually want as a vehicle. Decide that, THEN negotiate the best you can for what you know you want. Otherwise it's a guessing game and you'll go around in circles and end up with a mistake, a repaired debacle, or an overpriced "only option left" scenario. There's definitely more you can do but if you push the one dealership helping you too far, do you risk losing all options with them? Good luck my friend.

    Very helpful perspective. And yes. The dealer makes bank both sides. I have relegated myself to this. They got me out of the problem truck, but it didn’t sting them at all (nor should it). The onus now stands with Toyota. Will they come through? I have a case still open a call and email in and am waiting for a response. I have asked them to help rectify. I suggested 0% financing and some warranty. 2 things that don’t actually cost them on the books in the same way. Unsure if they will even call me back tho.

    I would lobby for a loaded SR5 and limited at your current trucks payment and term, just extended starting with the new date. You have been paying for this truck, its been in the shop for how many days total, and its jacked. They lose a little bit, you gain a lot.

    the problem is, the dealer is not not he line - they didn't even sell me this 21. the issue truly is on Toyota Canada, not the independent dealership, they have done what they can to help, but to expect them to eat 10-12k in an upgrade is not realistic.
