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.

#1633 of 1843 2008 New LTD price vs. 2010 SR5
Jul 10, 2009 (5:47 am)
I am trying to decide between a new 2008 LTD that lists for $52000+ and they are offering it to me for $42,000. When I go to NADA.com and book a used 2008 out with all the same options it gives me a retail value of around $38,000, so should I offer less than the $42,000 and what are my chances they would consider it?
Or I can go with a 2010 SR5 and have the DVD entertainment system installed and the prices are approx. $43,000 with a sale price of approx. $38,000.

You have to answer the following questions:
What is price of a used 2010 Sequoia SR5?
Does the SR5 have leather? Bluetooth?
For your reference, I purchased a 2008 SR5 fully loaded (except nav and DVD) for $34,300 brand new ( MSRR: 43,700). It all depends on value for the money - if the SR5 has everything the limited does, and you can get it for 4k less - great. Or you can wait till they give you 10k off the 2010.

Hi, could you please tell me how much off the MSRP did they take off. Did this include the cash back?
What state are you in?

Host (or anyone with advice)
Looking to get rid of my 2003 H2 Hummer with 60,000 for a Toyota Sequoia. What should be looking to pay around for a new Sequoia? Looking for either a limited or platinum truck. How much should I be getting off the truck, etc? Looking to make a purchase by the end of the week.
#1639 of 1843 Re: sequoia 10 platinum [mark198]
Sep 30, 2009 (5:47 am)
Not sure what best price is these days on Platinum/Limiteds. On end-of-summer 2008 Platinum/Limited leftovers on lots with a 58K+ MSRP, dealers in mid-atlantic were going down to about 49-50K for them, but I held off for many reasons. Now that 2010s are here (each mid-atlantic dealer recently received 1-2 Sequoias), you would expect to pay more of course, but not the high amounts that I find they are asking, especially now that sales are slow and clunker program is over. Maybe things will improve price-wise in November once dealers get hungry and realize that even with their limited supply of Sequoias, the demand to pay 60K for a SUV in this jobless economy is still very limited. Mark198's 4K below MSRP seems probably about right in this climate going into October, but you will have to fight/negotiate out here to get close to that. Even their Internet sales departments are starting their negotiations way too high. For example, best I recently saw was a dealer starting/asking price of $57,969 ($56,850 + $369 fees + $750 freight) on a Platinum with MSRP of $59,705. So, I laughed that offer off very quickly, as we are not going to get stuck paying basically 2K below MSRP. If prices don't improve in November (we are looking for at least 5K+ below MSRP), then our Plan B is to consider the Infiniti QX54 which has almost the same MSRP as a Platinum, but is going for about 8 or 9K below MSRP. [We own a Nissan SUV now and it's been as reliable as our past Toyotas; plus, all the transmission issues on the earlier generation Sequoia make us nervous . . . if I am being asked to pay close to $60K, I want a vehicle with ZERO warning signs like that. The QX54 has had some issues too, but I would be willing to risk those if I am paying closer to $50K . . . the money saved over the Sequoia could be invested and then used if EVER there were a problem, which is still unlikley on an Infiniti.] Plan C is to hold off until next year (I'm in no rush to drop 50-60K) and check out prices in the winter on the Sequoia again when demand subsides further and potentially dealer supply has slightly increased (or the Sequoias have sat unsold on the lots longer). We will see, but one things for certain, the 2009 sales tax deduction for new vehicle purchases is NO reason to rush to buy one of these this year . . . . do the math, for us it will save us only about $625 in our tax bracket. Thus, don't get fooled by the Toyota dealers trying to bring that up during your "buying experience."
Good Luck to all.
