    I’m still an avid poster in Tacomaworld and recently made a thread about my wonderful 4Runner experience. I’ve decided to post it here as well for those who are shopping.

    I recently bought a 2018 4Runner Off-road Premium. All previous car buying experiences have left a bad taste in my mouth. This experience was different....

    Through a friends referral, I acquired an awesome salesman named Chris. I told Chris “I want this particular vehicle and this price” and it happened. No bullshit. No shady dealer tactics. I got a damn good deal. I said I didn’t want any extras as we mod our vehicles on our own, this was no problem. I knew what I wanted and he accommodated.

    I picked up the buyers order Friday to drop off at my credit union for financing. My 4Runner arrived the next Tuesday. From the time we walked in, signed some papers, we were out the door with our new vehicle within an hour. Chris made the process painless and way too easy. His price was 2k less than Riverview and also beat another friends referral to another dealer. I was willing to drive anywhere in AZ and even into another state and he was able to cut a deal I couldn’t refuse.

    If you or anyone you know are shopping for a new Toyota, please make him your first stop. I’ve referred several over to him already and they have all purchased from him. He will not waste your time just to stuff his own pockets.


    Tell him Dawn S. with the gray 2018 4runner offroad premium sent you....

    People on here are always complaining about the overpricing and bad dealings when trying to make a 4 Runner purchase, so this is information that could be helpful to people shopping for a deal. I'm sure there are those that will thank you. for the post.

    Earnhardt has always treated me the best and gave me deals that all the others could not beat. Glad you had a great buying experience.

    at least there are multiple Toyota dealers one can shop around here, in Hawaii, there's only one so negotiating is mostly out of the question

    My only experience has been with Camelback Toyota, twice. I've had good experiences both from their sales and service department. I've recently gone to Avondale Toyota due to proximity, and had some warranty work done.

    My initial attempt to buy a vehicle from Camelback was terrible. They took 32k to 43k and wouldn’t tell me what these “appearance” packages were. The salesman was nice, he realized I knew more than he did so he shut up quick. The sales manager killed the deal. I’m 100% happy with my runner from Right. Easiest and best buying experience.

    Yikes, that's never fun. I purchased pre-owned, worked them down as well as worked them up on my trade in. I came out pretty good. How have your interactions been with the Right service department?

    I haven’t needed service or anything yet. I’ve just hit 2800 miles and I’ve had the runner for 5 weeks. I will likely use Right for the first service. We did our own maintenance on my Tacoma. I have no service experience in AZ yet.
