#1681 of 1843 GL450 catch on FIRE!!!
Nov 12, 2009 (7:21 am)
Have you heard about this?? This is NO JOKE! I was about to buy the GL when I read about this little problem they were having....spontaneously bursting into flames!!! OMG!! There is some info in these forums and on mbworld.org. regarding this - I have seen pictures too - Does anyone know if they have fixed this issue for 2010 GL???
Still in my old car b/c I don't know what to do - At least it won't catch fire
btw, Sequoia is a lot of money for what you get - It is not quite "lux" and the price you quoted (bjordan1) is the same lease for a car that costs $12k less! Not an attractive lease by toyota - I'm in same boat, but now with this fire thing......

It comes down to whether you want a masculine looking "truck" or a more luxury type vehicle. The monetary difference is merely the name as you know.....
The Sequoia is GREAT for everyday driving (as long as you have the sonar/navigation system for backup camera/powerfolding mirrors-amazing turning radius is really helpful too). I use it for groceries, errands, et. most of the time and am pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to drive. I love mine... (2010 Plat)
Either way, go with your initial instinct (it's almost always right) and you'll be happy.....

I am looking to purchase a new Sequoia. When will Toyota offer any incentives or special interest rates on the Sequoia??

Finally!!! 0% for 36 month incentive. Will not help those looking to lease...but a nice one for the buyers!

goto toyota.com and click special offers to see if it is available in your area. Nothing else on Sequoia.

Sorry Toyota, not good enough.....closed the deal on a loaded 09 Expedition Limited.....$9200 off sticker, 0% for 5 yrs, dealer threw in 2 yrs of scheduled maint....too good to pass up

I agree....Toyota missed the mark with this incentive. Had it been 5yr. 0%, there would be one in my driveway...With regard to the expedition, that's probably a 20k savings over a toyota with the disc. and finance offer....This is why Ford didn't take any bailout money...smart.

You are right Toyota needs to go with 5yr 0% along with some cash incentives say $4,000 off sticker or these vehciles will not sell. The last time I checked Infiniti was offering a $6,000 incentive to the buyer which means you can get 10,000 off sticker on a 4WD QX 56.

You can't find 0 for 60 and a cash incentive on any Japanese or German trucks...usually one or the other and the 0 for 60's are very few and far between. That is usually an American incentive. The 2010 QX is also 0 for 36 or 2.9 for 72 or crazy cash to dealer incentives also.
That being said this is the final year for the Q and they are being priced as such. I have gone back and forth, as my negotiated price on a Plat 4x4 is about $4,500 more than a comparable Q can be had for. Less when you factor in 0 for 36. Still, very, very tempting. I just like the Sequioa..the looks, the engine, access to third row.
I was just happy they threw me the bone of 0 for 36, which is actually worth $4,000-$5,000.
