The Best Toyota Incentives This Month
Just like the weather, March is a mixed bag regarding Toyota's incentive programs: a variety of rebates, some 0% financings, and a few lease deals on the low-end trim styles.
Complicating matters, Toyota has two large distributors that control sales and financing in 10 states.
Southeast Toyota Distributors controls all Toyota sales from dealers in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North Carolina, and South Carolina.
Gulf State Distributors handles all Toyota sales in Arkansas, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oklahoma.
When you buy or lease a car in one of the above states, you won't be dealing with Toyota Finance, but with the finance company associated with the independent distributor - making incentive programs vary depending on state.
The Toyota deals here are generally those that come directly from Toyota Finance.
Following are some of the best of the current Toyota deals for March 2011, ending on April 4, 2011.

My Recommendation for Car ShoppersTrueCar No-Haggle, Edmunds Price Promise, and 1-800 Car Show are the quickest way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
California Residents - Important:There is a new online car buying service called Roadster, available only to California residents, which I highly recommend you try - especially if you hate the stress of haggling with a car salesman. They provide an expert concierge who negotiates the price of the car and delivers it to your home with zero hassle - you never have to interact with a dealership. Here is my in-depth review of Roadster and why I recommend it.
