"Kinderhook Toyota" in Kinderhook, NY (Capital District Area)...
They were *amazing* to deal with...simplest automobile transaction I have ever participated in. They had two 2008 sequoias, the other one was a platinum...I think the MSRP was something around the $51k mark, advertised price was around $34k (and I assume the rebate on top of that), but I think it has since been sold. They also had great deals (I thought) on 2008 4runners (they had one or two advertised for around $23k (and I assume they were applying all rebates on top of that as well). They had a long list of "2008 specials" on their website, but the list appears to be down to just a couple of vehicles now...
It was the kind of deal that I kept waiting for the "surprise", and it never came. Turned out to be the best car buying experience I have ever had...they didn't try to sell me extended warranties, didn't try to put me into a loan, no "paperwork fees"...the salesman was great...they didn't even take a deposit from me. Price aside even, I am glad I bought from them and will definitely give them a look the next time I am in the market again. The price was so low, I did not even bother trying to negotiate...I had talked to several other dealers in the capital district and western mass area, and none could come close.
Feel free to drop me a note if you want more info...

seems like a heck of a deal, buzzy. I assume that included the $4000 dealer cash in that number?

Is that the current cash incentive? I know there was the $3000 ($4000 in some areas but not here in Southern California) in January plus the $500 marketing support from Toyota to dealer.
Did your dealership indicate this month's incentive is $3500? I have not been able to find the current rebate data on the web.

that was with a rebate that expired 02/02...it was on Toyotas and the dealers website. I am not sure what if any rebate is running now....

I was offered by one dealer in san francisco. 2008 sequoia SR5 4x4 mrsp $41,000 $33588 with the $3000 rebate... i think it is not bad. Toyota doesn't offer special financin this month. I think i will wait when they offer low APR...

I'm not sure this is such a great deal. I posted my own purchase a couple of months ago and my purchase is very similar to yours. I purchased a SR5 5.7L 2wd nautical blue Sequoia brand new with 50 miles on the odometer and the MSRP was $38,304.00, I bought the Sequoia for $32,000.00 with 0% financing and no down payment, I could have gotten it for $29,000.00 if I took the $3,000 rebate instead of the 0%. The options I have are the same as yours except for the running boards and the cold area package, of course I live in Oklahoma so cold area package is not prevalent in this area, I do regret not finding a model with the running boards but I can always get those through the dealer or aftermarket. Anyway, you can compare but I've realized on the forum, there's always someone who has gotten a "better deal".
