#1546 of 1843 Where is the incentive to buy a Sequoia
Mar 24, 2009 (6:12 am)
Just heard on the news today Toyota sales down 50% world wide. Toyota is looking for help from their government. New Sequoias are almost two years old and are not selling.Inventory levels listed at 350 plus in the southeast. I would like to buy one but not without some real incetive to buy a two year old vehicle. I think 15,000 off sticker price would be a good starting price. 2008 Tundra inventory levels were listed at 2000 plus. I will wait for some real incentive to buy or wait for 2010 models.

Thanks for the helpful advice. We have decided to consider an SR5 we found at another dealer that is brand new and they are willing to sell for about $10,000 off msrp. It lacks a few amenities, but we have a neighbor who owns a local customization shop that can install the most important amenities the wife wants. The key features, such as towing, 4x4, sunroof, spoiler are all there and it's the color she wants. All about the looks for the wife. At any rate, this strikes me as a much more reasonable deal.

I know they are around, because I have one in my garage.
#1550 of 1843 2010 Sequoia in June

I just talked to a dealer in Winston Salem, NC and he said the new 2010 Sequoias were not expected in until mid June. Anyone hearing anything different?
#1551 of 1843 Limited w/ Captain chairs

I bought my Limited yesterday in San Diego, CA. The MSRP was 50,900 and they offered 11,000 off all Sequoias. I have shopped this same deal around, because, yes, there are a glut of Sequoias in So Cal. Other dealers, including Cerritos Toyota, are offering 10K off MSRP. If we weren't impatient to get the registration fee prior to April 1st (in California., all registration fees will double, per Arnold), I would have waited. Since when do car prices increase over time?
one more thing, there seem to be several models with gray interior and far fewer w/ tan interior. I prefer the tan & it had all of the features I needed, so we went ahead w/ the purchase.
Finally, they were poised to make their deal by making their biggest bucks on my trade in and on extended warranties. I passed both up. Also the financing deal was lousy 6.9%, so I put 60% cash down.

Can I ask where in San Diego you got this? I am looking for one as well.

I talked to a dealer today who claimed they are in production now. He said they should be getting one in a week or two and another by the end of May.
The dealer also said they are not going to be pumping them out like in the past so selection will be very limited. I think that may also make them tougher to deal on the price.
#1555 of 1843 2008 Limited with Captain Chairs
Apr 23, 2009 (11:37 am)
Found the information on this forum was helpful when I was shopping for my Sequoia so I figured I would provide the details on my recent purchase.
I bought my Sequoia Limited in New England as this seem to be the nearest area to me to have it configured with the captain's chairs the way I wanted. The dealers on Long Island have the 8 passenger seating only. I called this dealership back in September and they had the same two Limiteds on the lot back then as when I called this time. By April of this year, they had both been sitting there for almost a year.
The following factory options came with the car:
Carpeted Floor Mats----290.00
Back up camera---------695.00
Total MSRP with destination was $51,270. I had them throw in all weather floor mats (including for the 3rd row), a cargo cover, and Simoniz paint sealant for free.
I took the $4,000 rebate and paid $39,180 + TTL.. The dealer was also able to beat my credit union's financing rate - I got 4.4% for 60 months through their lender.
Negotiated every over the phone and there were no surprises when I went to sign the paperwork. The car was prepped perfectly and looked like it just rolled off the showroom floor.
I was a little hesitant about buying a car that had been sitting on the lot for almost a year with the old gas still in it and the possibility of flat spots on the tires. However, I have no problems with the car whatsoever. Very happy with the purchase.
