Craig Schnaak at Bommarito Toyota is the person to buy a vehicle from.
In Autumn of 2020 I decided to buy a Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport, but with a very special build. Initially, I went to a Toyota dealer closer to my home, but I left there with the impression that they thought that they were doing me a favor by even entertaining the fact that what I wanted would need to be ordered, much less negotiated on what the final purchase price would be.
Just about turned off by that experience, I nevertheless replied to an email from Craig Schnaak who asked me to stop by. Pretty much from the outset, he was different. He seemed genuinely happy to see me, and said that he would work with me to buy the truck that I wanted.
As we sat at his desk, he searched for the truck with the options that I wanted, but there was nothing in the U.S. at any dealer. However, he looked at the build schedule and identified about 3-4 trucks that he could potentially trade other dealers for. So, I went ahead and put a deposit down and ordered my truck.
It took about 5 months from order to delivery, but it was worth the wait. I got my manual transmission, TRD Sport, spec'd out exactly as I wanted it, and Craig kept me informed about the production milestones as it was being built and then delivered.
I can't say enough good things about him as a sales guy, and person. He is a great person to deal with. He is up front, and tells it straight. He will get you in the vehicle you want and get you a fair price.
Thank you, Craig, and Bommarito Toyota, for helping me buy my first pickup truck. A great experience, and one I hope to repeat in the future!
