That's not too bad out the door, though not great (just my opinion though). Granted, I bough my Sequoia LTD just over a year ago, but that said, given all of the "issues" Toyota is having lately, I'd think they'd be awfully hungry to make deals. Nobody is buying Toyotas.
I was able to buy my LTD for $1000 below invoice period. The only "extras" I paid was a doc/DMV fee at the dealer (which was maybe around 200 bucks?) - plus sales tax -- that was it.
If your current dealership won't move, then you can always try another (assuming you live in a major metro area).
Also, the red rock interior is pretty cool, so if you're mind is set on that and they're able to get it for you, then don't let me get in the way of your happiness.
Lastly, have you tried speaking to the "Internet Manager" at a competing dealership? You could tell him/her that you're ready to buy now and will buy from him/her TODAY if he can give you the truck for $XX.

Thanks for the insight. The dealership just informed me that Toyota rejected my special order request because of the Red Rock. They resubmitted the request today and believe they will have feedback by sometime next week. I did think about going to other dealerships again, but in all honesty, I'm a little tired of this process. However, I may take your advice and try to speak with the internet/fleet manager and see if I can get a better deal. My only concern with going to another dealership is the the fact that I won't receive the following benefits:
Free Oil changes for life
Guaranteed engine for life
Free 24 hour roadside assistance within 50 miles of the dealership for life
Free pickup and delivery of my vehicle with a scheduled appointment for life (pickup and delivery must be within 50 miles of the dealership)
Free loaner vehicle for life whenever I have a scheduled service
10% of all service and accessories get store away and credited toward my next vehicle (up to $2500 can be used toward my next vehicle)
Parts and service guaranteed for life
and a couple of other smalll items. You just don't get these types of benefits from every dealership. However, this family of dealerships gives all this stuff free of charge as part of the sale. If Toyota rejects it again, I'll more than likely wait until March 1st to get a 2010 Limited off the lot. Hopefully, they'll have some incentives in place starting in March. We'll see!!!
I do have a question for you. You stated you were able to get you LTD for $1000 below invoice plus Tax. If you don't mind, what was invoice or what price did you pay prior to TTL? Please fill me in. Perhaps I can be a bit more agressive in getting my price decreased especially with all the quality issues.

Damos - I found it much less hassle dealing with the internet/fleet mgr - I didn't meet him til we drove 50 miles to pickup the vehicle -everything was email - local dealership wouldn't match their offer. My deal was invoice price - if you can do better great. Of course invoice already has holdback and other added costs that guarantee a profit. I suspect a hungry dealership can shave off the invoice price. below is a list of the items...
Mfg Base Price:
Total Factory Installed Options:
Total Locally Installed Options:
Base Vehicle Holdback:
Dealer Added Options:
Fleet Price Protection:

Toyota Is Said to Discuss Rebates, Warranties to Lure Customers.
I found this today on Bloomburg.com.
The article stated something like, "Ideas being considered include warranties of as long as 10 years and rebates of thousands of dollars per vehicle that would start in March, said three executives from retailer groups with Toyota franchises. They declined to be identified because the discussions are private."

Thanks for the information. This may work out well for me. Toyota rejected my special order twice. At least, that's what the dealer is telling me. I advised the dealer that I'll take the vehicle with Graphite but with a price reduction. They dropped the price by another $500 which puts me at a few hundred below invoice. My vehicle won't be in until mid to late March. Hopefully, the incentives will be in place by then which would allow me to take advantage of them. Again, thanks for the information.

I just negotiated a price of $51,200 ON THE ROAD for a 2010 Limited Sequoia. Basically, that's about $500 below factory invoice when you break down the overall pricing. My vehicle won't be here until mid to late march because I've requested the following with regard to my Sequoia:
It must come from the factory with the NEW version of the accelerator.
It must NOT have the Navigation system included (All new Limited Sequoias are being built with Navigation and I don't particularly care for those navigation systems. My portable unit works just fine and I get lifetime traffic information for free just like the toyota unit. Also, the only thing you lose when removing the the Toyota navigation system is Navigation and Backup camera. However, the limited still comes with a Backup Camera as part of your Rearview mirror; it just smaller than the 7" Navigation screen. For a savings of $1250+ and portability of my current nav system, I can deal with a smaller screen.

Add a child ... add a SUV. We already have an Acadia and like it very much. We now have 3 little ones so I must part with my G35 and pick up another family hauler. My wife will argue it with me but it is between the Sequoia and Armada. With an email I got the following price: 2010 Sequoia limited with an MSRP $53,710.00 for $50,504.00 plus TTL. Since I didn't ask for the invoice $, I am curious as to yours for a comparison.
On the flip side I can get a new 2010 Armada Platinum for ~$42,500. This includes Nissan cash and a supplier discount. I like the Sequoia better for a lot of reasons ... but not 8,000 reasons. I do hope Toyota gets in the game with cash incentives.
I'll keep you posted as to what we decide.

I believe invoice on my LTD was just over $46K. Again, no Nav on this truck, but had a couple extras like the automatic tailgate (can open/close from remote), factory-installed remote start (not after-mkt or dealer-installed), and upgraded all-weather floor mats (the heavy duty rubber ones you can hose down).
BTW, I'm in NY metro area if that helps. Not sure how deals vary by region.
Lastly, when I bought, I got a $3K factory cash-back incentive (in addition to the discount to invoice). Pretty sweet. I think my total cost out the door, net of rebate and including tax was just over $46k.
#1766 of 1843 Another article on Incentives
Feb 14, 2010 (12:01 pm)
According to Reuters News on Sunday 2-14-10:
ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) – Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) is considering increased incentives and an extended warranty program to combat consumer concerns about a deepening product safety crisis, a source briefed on still-developing plans said on Sunday.
Toyota, reeling from its largest recall in history, is discussing a range of options with its U.S. dealers to support sales, including $1,000 in addition to the current $1,000 in cash incentives to returning Toyota customers, the source told Reuters.
Toyota's current $1,000 in "loyalty" bonus matches incentives offered by General Motors Co (GM.UL), Ford Motor Co (F.N), Chrysler and Hyundai Motor Co (005380.KS) to lure Toyota customers.
Other options Toyota is considering include a free maintenance program -- such as oil changes and regular mile services -- and a new warranty program that at least matches Hyundai's market-leading 10-year, 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, the source said.

#1767 of 1843 I don't get it....
Feb 19, 2010 (7:56 pm)
I want a new SR5 Sequoia. I can't imagine Toyota is not offering 5yr-0%, or at least a 3k rebate at this point. Every day they die a bit more. I am one of the folks
who has a 2006 Avalon Limited. No problems at all, hell I haven't even scheduled the recall yet. Today I hear the rental car market is pulling the plug on toyota and the resale market is being irrepairably damaged.....They have a loyal customer here, but a GMC denali with all the deals is getting hard to turn down..What are they thinking....I've been waiting for 4 months for something....the last plan, 3-36 at 0% didn't cut it for me............
