Frequently Asked Questions
What does “Precision Price” mean?
Our vehicles’ Precision Prices are based on region-wide sales data and current customer demand. This approach allows us to quote prices that are always competitive and oftentimes lower than what’s currently on our website. Backed by real market data, our Precision Prices allow for a fair, no-hassle shopping experience!
How does Precision Toyota arrive at its prices for vehicles?
We use a sophisticated “live-market pricing” approach to price our pre-owned inventory. This means that vehicles are not priced on their book value, but rather on the current market’s supply and demand. This responsive, fair pricing model allows us to price our inventory competitively and make sure our deals are the best deals.
How negotiable are your prices?
Our live-market pricing strategy takes pressure off of you and us to ensure our pricing is competitive before you even enter our showroom. If you ever believe our pricing is inconsistent with your own research, please bring that information with you upon your visit. We will be more than happy to review your information to make sure we’re offering a fair deal.
How much do you think my trade is worth?
We offer trade-in estimates online but need to see your car in-person to provide a definitive figure. Appraisals typically take only 20 minutes and are often done before you’re even back from a test drive. And there’s never any obligation to buy; in fact, we’ll offer to buy your vehicle from you even if you don’t buy one from us.
What kind of interest rate will your dealership offer me?
Many new Toyota vehicles offer special financing incentives to qualified buyers. In most cases, those who qualify and wish to finance choose one of Toyota’s special programs. Should the vehicle you decide to purchase not include such finance programs, we use many competing lenders who are eager to earn your business and offer competitive interest rates.

If I receive a price quote from you will it change once I arrive at your dealership?
No, absolutely not. The price quote we provide you is a real price on a real car you can really buy.
Does your quote include rebates and/or other incentives that most people do not qualify for to lure me in?
No, our dealership prides itself on transparency. We are committed to informing you of any and all programs available to help you save money. Our price quotes do not include limited programs such as Toyota’s College Grad Rebate ($750 on select vehicles) that some people qualify for. We will be happy to help you apply these special program rebates here at the dealership.
Will the price be lower if I pay cash?
No, whether you decide to pay with cash or finance your vehicle price will affect the vehicle’s price. We do not believe an individual’s payment method should influence the selling price.
Beyond the vehicle selling price, what other costs are associated with a purchase at Precision Toyota of Tucson?
If you are an Arizona resident and intend to register your vehicle in Arizona, you will pay 8.60% city / state / county transaction privilege tax on the vehicle’s selling price. Should you have a trade-in, you will be taxed on the difference after trade. [For example, if the vehicle’s selling price is $20,000 and your trade-in value is $5,000, you will pay $1,290 ($15,000 x 8.60%) in privilege tax.] Other costs include: License fees (1.68% of vehicle base price for new vehicles), Documentation Service fee of $487, Registration fee of $8.25, Title fee of $5.50, Postage of $3.25, and Tire Tax of $5.00. For the most up-to-date cost information, please contact the dealership.
What is your 3-day/100-mile True Guarantee?
We don’t like buyer’s remorse any more than you do. If you change your mind about a recent vehicle purchase, simply bring it back to us within 3 days and 100 miles of driving and exchange it for any other car on our lot. Some conditions apply, please contact us for details.
I am a resident in another state. Can you sell a vehicle to me?
Yes, in fact much of our business is from out of state customers simply looking to get the best deal. We are thus experts in the process and can assist you in completing it smoothly. Please know that you will be responsible for sales tax and fees in your respective state.
If I didn’t buy my vehicle at your dealership will I be treated any different than someone who did when I visit for Service?
On the contrary, we can’t wait to welcome you! We’re confident that after visiting our award-winning Toyota Service Center — one of the most comprehensive in Arizona — you won’t want to maintain your car anywhere else.
Must I service my car at your dealership if I purchase it from you?
You are welcome to service your vehicle at any establishment you please. But please know that Toyota suggests you maintain your vehicle at a Toyota dealership, where the technicians are factory-trained and use genuine Toyota parts. And of course, we suggest that dealership be Precision! But ultimately the choice is yours.
What do you mean when you say you’re the top-selling Toyota dealer in Tucson?
This claim is based on 2008-2016 retail sales figures for Toyota’s Denver Region and total retail sales figures for the Tucson New Car Dealers’ Association.
Why does Precision Toyota do so well in Tucson?
Our dealership is fortunate to be in the position where we do not need to spend large amounts of money on advertising. We’ve built our business on providing our customers with unparalleled care over 60 years. As a result, much of our business comes by way of repeat and referral customers.
