It’s not for me (color or make) but I’m not the one spending the money on it.  If all your boxes are checked, I think you have already made up your mind.  Enjoy the new truck feeling and go enjoy your hard earned money.  After all, the whole reason we work is to spend what we make.

I can't believe they would put it on the lot with the seat like that . They probably will have that repaired I would think .

Nope. They aren’t “Toyota Used Car Certifying” it either. Something about having to put all new tires on it that would boost the price. I’m pretty much over that Gray one.

I thought this would be a fun Poll, and it has been. I was unaware my manhood and curmudgeonosity would be questioned though. You guys never disappoint...🥱😆

Oh yes there is -- what's with the "B-rad" thing?  Is that just a random misprint or is there something more sinister to it?  Maybe something else we can use to needle him mercilessly??  Curious minds need to know these things.

Needle away. I coined that myself, I think, can’t really remember.

Nothing wrong with that color.

Bonus I assume it is less likely to be shot than some other UJ trucks in recent history.

No, that would be a blown head gasket and coolant vaporizing.

The more I look at the picture of the truck the more I like the color.  Enjoy your "new to you" truck.

This truck just became available. 2017, 46k Lease turn in, local dealership. TRD package...Toyota Certified Used Vehicle....clicks all the boxes. 

 

          I like it...mainly because the truck is a good deal, certified, etc...but I actually like that color...good rig!!!!

         good time to buy...late in the month....plus, with all that has been going on, probably not a lot of sales lately...they may take a lowball offer...

Did a drive by and saw it in the flesh today with JoAnn (and Luna...Cash doesn’t like to be in vehicles unless we are going bird hunting) when dealership was closed. It’s a beautiful rig and appears new in the box. The color isn’t as intense in person...honest...More of an autumn orange. Still flashy for a gray or dull green kind of guy. They are asking the top end of the blue book value for a certified used truck and I can see why. It’s almost show truck in appearance compared to the other new Tundras on the lot. Will take some real finagling to make the numbers work if I jump on it.

These aren’t good times at all for car dealers. I realize Toyota’s basically sell themselves and the salesmen are just providing test drives. I guess what I’m saying is you won’t get better pricing as the economy fires back up.

Make your first offer $1500-2000 below what you can pay for the rig; go up $500-1000  after that, then come in at your final $ on the 3rd go around.  Can’t hurt...I bought a 2017 Rav 4 on 1/10/20; certified; they knocked $100 off ask price.  They really didn’t dicker, which is what they claimed, didn’t believe.  But we are in different times...good luck!!!!👍🤩

Brad, I’d buy a pristine truck in an odd color (exception being yellow!) any day over a grey or otherwise more preferred color that was less scrupulously maintained. Also, the orange is sort of cool. 
 

Thought experiment, look at your current tundra. Not the color it WAS but the color it IS. I bet it is not what it once was and is less attractive than the orange tundra you are considering. I’ll also bet the color

of the current rig doesn’t even enter your mind...

 

orange one is sweet!
