Want to find out if your stealership is charging markups? Look them up here:


Good Luck!
Mine has a Tacoma TRD with a $10k markup so I may be out folks. I’ll wait until Spring to see what things look like, what do I have to lose at this point.
I’m not paying $55k for a Corolla that does 0-60 in 5.5….nope. (motortrend)

EDIT - my stealership once HAD a Tacoma trd with a $10k mark-up back in May….but that just indicates their potential to do it again…

Every stealership that I have talked to seems to be ALOT more interested in marking up any of the TRD PRO offerings. And less interested in marking up the GR86's and Supras. And this is coming from me calling the 6 closest Toyota Stealerships near me....

Depends where you live.

BTW, I also have a 9th gen Accord V6 Nav Manual ;)
Wow, very nice! The manuals alone are so rare that I lived near Atlanta at the time. And still had to drive 2 hours out, just to test drive one. Purchasing one was a whole other story. The “fully loaded” part makes it even more rare. We’ve got some really rare cars….I really love mine. I left it all stock other than adding pilot sport AS 3+‘s and switching the stock battery out for an Optima (yellow) battery. I live in cold climate and those two changes made a huge difference. The tires are the perfect tire for this car with great summer performance and wet/cold performance. Hope you‘re enjoying yours!

Yes indeed. I was just happy to get a V6 6speed (6-6) and it was a plus that it also have the Nav. I live where it's mainly hot but I get it, my kiddos love the car but taking them in and out of a coupe is a pain so I have my eyes on the GR Corolla

I'm definitely enjoying mine, it's a great car for the past 5 years.

What I have found interesting, at least for the dealerships around me, is that the larger volume ones are the ones charging markup while the smaller volume ones are charging MSRP (supposedly). I feel like this should be the other way around... more volume should equal more willingness to get a sale done and another car in. Am I thinking about this the wrong way?

For some reason this conversation is not showing up in the “new posts” section, for me, that contains conversations with new posts as late as 10/5. Anyone see this not showing up there?

If you could sell the same number at a low price or the same number at a high price, what price would you sell at?

Yes, but my understanding was that larger volume dealerships would rather get the sale at a lower price than sit on the car at a higher price like the smaller volume ones.

When they have "lists" 5-25 deep, why not try for profits? So you pass on 5k ADM, and someone on the list takes it within 48 hours... the dealership wins as the 5k ADM by far exceeds any hold-back monies. If they run through the list and everyone refuses, they can floor the car with the ADM for a month with little risk as they know there are buyers out there for MSRP. There will not be a surplus of the GRC for the next year at least. Toyota dealerships generally operate with a relatively lean inventory compared to the big 3. Even before the current situation my experience was that they had and turned a few of each model at any given time. If you wanted something that wasn't on the lot, it would be there in a week or 3, (for non-limited-edition vehicles). The bad news for Toyota and the dealers is that this car is arriving first quarter of 2023. The Fed is raising interest rates to slow the economy and there are some pretty savage economic headwinds without that. The supply of fertilizer is constrained by the war in Ukraine. Prepare to pay a lot more for food as Russia is the largest source of fertilizer in the world. Any fertilizer made anywhere in the world will enter the world market and multiples of the historic price. People in the third world will be starving and those of us fortunate enough to live in the first world will be paying a lot more for food. So hey, the good news is that a lot of people will try to put off buying a new car and hopefully the demand for the GRC will fall to somewhere close to the supply.
