    Hey guys,

    New to this market and have a used 2016 with 28k miles that the dealer wants 34k for. I would imagine I can get them to 31k, maybe just 32k based. I'm hearing I can get a 2019 for just 37k and change though if I'm patient, and that sounds like a no brainer. Will it really work out that way? I'm not really seeing those prices online or on KBB/true car. I can wait until later in the year but my sports car drops like a rock in value come winter.

    That’s how it worked for me when I bought my 15 new. 37k new. Used 2010s ish with 80k on the clock going for 28-32k. New was a no brainer for me.

    I'll have to keep this in mind I guess. How can I get such a good deal when most of the info online suggests I should be paying around 40k? Any feature difference between 2016 and 2019? This is making it difficult I tell you what. I really don't want to put any additional capital down but I don't want $500+ car payments either. If I was getting this 16 for $30k and getting top dollar on my trade in I think I'd be able to live with that, but otherwise I don't think I can. I really should just wait but I'll need tires and brakes here eventually, and if I do that work then I won't want to get rid of the car for a bit.

    Well I test drove a Tacoma and a tundra, and I definitely know I want a tundra. I couldn't get the guy to go under 40k though for a 2019! Maybe need to try somewhere else

    Toyotas turn the traditional car-buying model (purchase something that’s gently used) on its head; the resale value is so good that buying used really doesn’t make sense, especially when a new one is only within a few thousand dollars of extra cost. Example: check out what FJ Cruisers are going for these days

    I think I need to wait a bit then and get more capital to put down so I can get a new one.

    Tacoma’s, Tundras, FJs and Tundras don’t care about 20-40k on them used. I tried for years to find a great used deal and just ended up going with a 2019.
    Side-note. I can give you my dealers info. He got me a 4wd TRD Crewmax SR5 under 40k. So it’s doable.

    If you wait 2 to 3 months you could get even a better deal on a 2019 leftover.

    Welcome from NY. Where are you located?

    Where do you live zero?


    My only problem waiting too long is I drive a mustang and the kbb drops like a rock in winter.

    I want a double cab with TRD package, color isn't that specific but the dark grey one looks good. I might wait until next spring after my tax return. I could put more money down and get the payments to where I want them but I don't feel too comfortable doing that just yet
