In response to your question: did the $7800 off MSRP price include $2000 Toyota Loyalty cash rebate of $2000. Answer: I don't think so. A few dealers said I needed to own an older Sequoia to get another $2000 loyalty cash. I already owned a Camry but this did not appear to be a factor in getting the $7800 off MSRP.
Here's a link to a dealer with $9800 off MSRP (DCHToyotaCity.com). You need to add $2000 back on if your going to do 0% financing. Her's the link to a price:
Another example of an agressively priced Toyota Dealer is wwwDarCars.com. They emailed me some good prices too.
I was able to get 3 dealers to agree to $7800 off MSRP including my taking 0% financing. Many dealers would not go nearly this low and would tell me how it's below cost. I had an excellent buying experience and there were no hidden fees.

Thanks! It seems that pricing in NJ/NY area are a little bit better than Northern California. One key reason is that the invoice price in N. CA is higher due to Toyota's advertising budget allocation etc. In fact, the invoice price in this region appears to be $800 to $900 higher than what's shown on Edmunds.com. Because of the higher invoice price, the dealer are less willing to go far below the invoice (hence larger discount from MSRP) and offer 0% financing at the same time. It appears that most dealers here are willing to offer $300 to $800 below invoice which is about $6000 to $6500 below MSRP. Didn't know that invoice could range so much from regions to regions which could significantly impact the final price.

I completly agree, that Toyota should have added extra motion on the passanger seats. That is cheap in my eyes for vehicle of this caliper. Also the drivers seat should slide out of the way when you turn off the car.
However, I do like the vehicle. It rides very nice and handles well for such a large vehicle. And even thought I got a great deal, I still have to get past the MPG on this beast.

A reporter from a national newspaper is looking to speak to consumers who just purchased a new Toyota Sequoia within the past six months and whether it had anything to do with gas prices. If you’re interested in speaking to the reporter, please contact Chintan Talati at ctalatiedmunds.com with your daytime contact information no later than June 23, 2008.
#1258 of 1843 2008 Sequoia SR5 for $7000 off MSRP and 0% Financing [wrxcsti]
Jun 19, 2008 (4:39 am)
Just wanted to know what others think about my recent purchase. One dealership gave us $7000 off of MSRP on a 2008 Sequoia SR5/5.7 L with leather at 0%/60 month financing. Also, this vehicle had been driven by the sales manager for 1200 miles. I discovered that it is challenging to come up with a valuation on a vehicle like this because it is already being severely discounted, 0% financing, and difficulty in pricing a discount on a vehicle with 1200 miles on it. Also, for those military members out there, Toyota offers a $400 rebate if you are on active duty. What do others think about the price we paid on this vehicle?
#1259 of 1843 question on 7 yr/100K warrantly
Jun 19, 2008 (4:52 am)
Anyone have thoughts or advice on getting the extended warranty on a new Sequoia? I decided not to get the extended warranty.. I was tempted to get it, however, since this is a new version of the Sequoia and kinks may show up. What is a good price on this warranty?
#1260 of 1843 7 yr/100k warranty

You can get the seven year, 100,000 mile , 0 deductible bumper to bumper Platinum for $1,000.
#1261 of 1843 has any dealer had any luck on ebay?
Jul 01, 2008 (7:09 am)
The southeast region now has $5000 cash back + 60,000 people were sent an additional $3000 incentive. We have 29 Sequoia in stock and I am considering putting all of them on ebay at a loss to clear them out. I checked the surrounding regions and it appears no one has this same incentive. Any thoughts?

Up to $8,000 in cash back in the southeast?? Sounds pretty good. I have been actively searching for a 2008 Sequoia 4wd for about a month now and I am just waiting on the right deal. I live in Texas, but have also been looking outside the state as well. I have a quote for a 4WD SR5 MSRP at ~$49,200 for $43,000 with toyota loyalty ($2k) and grad rebates ($400) with 0% for 60 months. Can you beat this offer?
