    Exclamation Dealer buy back



    My local Toyota dealer keeps asking me to sell them back my truck. Even if I don't buy another vehicle from them, THEY want to buy my truck back from me. Why is my local dealership so hot to buy back my 2008 Tundra? Sure it only has 82,000 miles on it but, it's a 2008 model. That's 9 years old! Why does the dealer want to buy it back so badly? Does anyone have any ideas on this?

    So they can get you into the dealership to sell you a new one. They want to make money off the 2008 and make money off a new sale.

    Just another advertising scheme! I have been getting one of those letters in the mail every few weeks for years. I find it somewhat interesting that the mailing address is somewhere in the midwest (maybe Iowa??) which is 1500 miles away from the dealership.
