Dear Mr. Toyoda,
You win. My patience has expired and necessity dictates that I purchase a new car now. I had high hopes that a tarnished brand and declining sales would result in cash incentives but they have not ... Instead I see you have opted to spend your money on slick advertising campaigns designed to tug at the heart strings of America. And while I understand that some American jobs depend on Toyota sales, I also understand that American safety depends upon a quality product. So while past consumer loyalty may have made you the #1 car brand in America, your arrogance will take it away.
Best of Luck,
PS: Mr. Nissan wanted me to personally thank you. I'll be driving home in his Armada on Friday and I couldn't be happier.
#1775 of 1843 Price for a 2010 Sequoia Limited Demo?
Mar 12, 2010 (2:26 pm)
I am trying to find out if I am being quoted a good price for a 2010 Sequoia Limited Demo. I am being quoted $47,900. The demo is in excellent condition, has 6k miles on it, and includes the rear entertainment system, navigation, wheel locks, and remote start. This is before tax/tags etc. I am located in NJ. ( I was previously quoted $47,999 on a 2010 Sequoia Platinum Demo with 12k from the same dealership. The Platinum sold to another customer and is no longer in play.) Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated. I love the Sequoia and want to make sure we are getting a fair deal. Thanks!

Well, fyi, I was looking at a Limited over the weekend...loaded out MSRP was 56000. I went in, offered 48500 expecting they would counter offer..or just laugh me out of the dealership....but before I could take a breath they said, "ok, we can do that". Food for thought...on another note, directed to Mr. Toyoda....I am very pleased with my 2010 Denali...yes, you suckered me into your elaborate dealership with 0.0% for 60 plastered all over the windshield of a 2010 Sequoia...pen and check in hand...I was going to sign the papers and drive off into the sunset....apparently, this was a mistake on the 16 year old working at the dealership....fooled me. Come to find out, you place a picture of the sequoia right by all your 0% financing adds. That's ok though..my 2010 Denali will suit me just right. US Govt 1.....Japanese 0

aasb- I bought a ltd in December- needed to buy last year for tax reasons - looks like dealers should be much more flexible now - I'm guessing they will come off the 47.9 - isn't it a used auto now? there is lots of advice on comparing prices on previous posts - my 2cents - if you really still want a ltd find a fleet or internet manager and skip the floor salesperson.
mynew - We moved from a Yukon to Seq last Dec - we would probably be in a new Yukon if they had automatic rear seats - getting too old to lug those things in and out and I wasn't impressed with the Ford alternative.
#1778 of 1843 April incentives?
Mar 31, 2010 (5:25 pm)
Another month is coming to a close and no Sequoia incentives... Has anyone heard rumblings about whether the Sequoia will be getting any incentives when the current Toyota deals end on April 5th?

2010 Sequoia platinum 4X4 for $54583 plus tax tag title and 100 processing fee Is this a good deal???

I'm not sure if that's a good deal or not. I just bought a 2010 Sequoia platinum on April 30th. It stickered for $61360 and I got it for $55600. I was willing to drive up to 500 miles to find a good deal but this was the best I could find. The other dealers were only willing to come off the sticker about $3000.
On a side note I love this SUV. With the air ride system this thing rides great and turns on a dime, although it is a little thirsty. I'm using this Sequoia to replace my beloved 2003 Chevy Avalanche which was the best truck I've ever owned. It had 172000 miles on it and I plan on putting over 200 K on this new Sequoia as my mobile office.
#1782 of 1843 2010 Toyota Sequoia SR5 5.7L Sport Package
May 28, 2010 (4:00 am)
Just purchased Silver Sky Metallic 5.7L. Interesting experience here in TX. I am not sure why, but basic SR-5's are very rare in the SE region, and the 5.7's are almost non existent. Paid $39000 even through USAA car buying service. Had to fly from Houston to San Antonio to get a deal, but that worked out fine.
I was dealing with Fred Haas and ended up really disappointed. It was the classic "I brought my car in for service but let me go talk to the sales guy while I am waiting" mistake. Ended up with a "deal" on a 4.6L SR5 for ,$39,600 that they were going to have to trade from another dealership. And they offered me $15.5K on my Tundra that I had an offer for $17K on from car max. While we were sitting there as the sales guy did the standard 45 minute intervals at the manager stand, I started my internet search. I even had their own internet sales dept quote the same vehicle and for almost $1000 less. They still would not budge. On the other hand, my deal in San Antonio consisted of 3 emails back and forth , 2 phone calls and about 45 minutes in the fleet managers office. The fleet manager even offered to pick me up at the airport when I arrived in San Antonio. So my lessons learned are, start with USAA and look further away from home.

I had to buy outside the five state area controled buy Southeast Toyota to get the 5.7 liter (non flex fuel engine) in a 4WD SR5 model. The vehicle had to be special ordered as the color pyrite mica is hard to find in the SR 5.
I gave the dealer a $500 .00 deposit with a signed contract on the agreed to price to special order the vehicle. The price paid was $730 .00 over invoice which was obtained using overstocked.com cars. I had two New Jersey dealers competing for the sale offering the same deal
The price from the New Jersey dealer was 556.00 dollars less and I sold my 2001 Sequoia privately for $1300.00 more than what was offered by the Fla dealer.
I flew up to New Jersey for $130.00 and was picked up by my brother in law. We drove to the dealership picked up the vehicle. Everything went smooth and I was able to visit with relatives over the weekend driving home a couple days later.
I really like the vehicle and enjoyed the drive back to Fla
