Thank you for the advice. One aspect of this process that is confusing is that MSRP on the SUV is $46,500 but then there are options that Toyota has put on the SUV which cannot be taken off. As a result the car sells at say $50,000.
In previous discussions in this forum I have seen posts talking about taking 20% of the price of the SUV.....is this 20% off the price with the included options or suggested retail or 20% off the SUV without the options.

A vehicles sticker price includes all options. That is the MSRP including options. A Platinum Sequoia has a whole list of options that are standard on a Platinum. If you took a base Sequoia and added up all those same options, the sticker price should be similar. It's just that you find a base Sequoia with all those same options if you want them.
The 20% is probably a best case scenario for a 2008 model. Those are getting scarcer but now that 2010s are out, you can probably still get about 20% off MSRP (or close to that) on a 2008. Dealers need to move those in order to get 2010s from the factory. I doubt anybody will get close to 20% off of a 2010 model.

Thanks for the post and advice, I appreciate it.
Not many vehicle out there with those options will probably have to go after market.

Where are you getting 3.99% financing? That's great!
#1627 of 1843 PLEASE ADVISE! Have the 7yr 100,000m warranty...do I need another extended?

I am buying a used 06 Sequoia. It has the 7 yr 100,000m warranty. I was wondering if anyone has bought the extended bumper to bumper warranty. of course they are claiming it covers everything that the 7yr one doesn't. Also claiming it covers anything we might just accidentally break. i really don't believe any of it, but am scared not to buy what i need since this is a used vehicle. does anyone have problems with toyota paying for normal "wear and tear" or paying for anything that goes wrong with car. just don't want to pay an extra $1500 if it's not actually going to cover anything. Thanks for feedback.

$1500 is a rip off. Depending on the mileage you should be able to get it for around $900,

try to sell your van instead of trading. I highly doubt the dealer will give you the KBB value. even if you sell 1K bellow KBB value you will come out on the top when you purchase your new sequoia. You have better negotiating power if you dont have trade. I bought my SR5 4X4 for $34 flat before TTL. in san diego. power seat, auto dimmer rear view mirror,spoiler. what I did did is spent another $2000 with after market gadget.(nav with bluetooth/ipod adaptor/dvd player that play both the front and rear screen/back up camera and remote start) technically i have better gadget than platinum.

i suggest getting LIMITED, but without NAV or DVD. you are better off getting everything after market. a lot of people are having issue with the factory installed nav. but shop around before you decide to installed. i had my AVIC pioneer NAV installed for $2k to included:back up camera, dvd, that can play both front and rear screen/ipod adapter and remote start. go to toyota website and type zip code and it will show all the dealer in your area. you can go to the dealer website individually and it will show if they have the vehicle you are looking for in their inventory. i lived in el paso, but i bought mine in san diego this past Jan and by then only few left in their inventory.

I just finished my factory nav install on my Sequoia. About $500 ( purchased a used one from ebay and wiring harness). The nav is the same as a Lexus nav - but with a poor resolution screen ( why Toyota????) . I agree that the factory nav isn't as good as a kenwood or a pioneer, but I didn't want to lose any of the stock functions (steering wheel/microphone). You can't mess with the nav unit while you are in motion, but it does have voice commands that work quite well. The bluetooth and phone pairing capability is very good. I also installed a pair of invision DVD headrests ( again ebay - $600) with factory leather - these look really good. My SR5 is very close to a limited - the only thing I couldn't install was the power lift door.
