Daily Tips – Toyotathon 2009: Tundra Comfort and Convenience
Every year Toyotathon makes owning or leasing a new Toyota an even better deal than usual. While incentives help reduce the overall costs of ownership by sweetening transaction prices or finance terms the high value built into every Toyota doesn’t change.
Think Leasing! – December is an ideal time to look at leasing a new Toyota. Residual values may change in January and, with the change of year, may drop a percentage point or two. Combine currently high retained value projections with reduced prices and favorable lease terms and now is the time to become the proud driver of a new car, Sienna, truck, or SUV.
With TFS Special Lease and Finance incentives to sweeten the deal:
All Tundra models have a high level of standard comfort and convenience features.
