Toyota Sequoia, SUV

One may have a very difficult time finding an SR5 with Nav. Dealers are not ordering them that way so we have to go with limited models. It is also very difficult to order SR5's with Nav. After much prodding I got my dealer to "try" and order one with this option but I am still waiting for the confirmation. This information is straight from the dealers mouths, including Dianne at Carson Toyota. She ordered our first Sequoia in 2001.
As far as pricing. No one should be paying more than $500 over invoice. There is not a limited supply of these vehicles and it looks like 2006 with show some major changes.

Hiya. I received very similar quotes - I was wondering how you knew for sure what their Factory Holdback was.

My husband and I drove an '05 Sequoia today and I really liked it. He wasn't more impressed with it than our '02 Yukon, however ultimately it's my choice since I drive it and the price compares very closely with the Yukon. We found out that Toyota is giving $2000 cash-back to the dealer right now on '04 and possibly '05 as well (probably just on the '05) Does that pretty much mean that we can offer invoice on the car and the dealer really doesn't have to make anything on this??? Hubby thinks I'm wrong but I've been reading Edmunds for awhile and I think this is a fair deal. They make $2000 just for us signing the papers and taking the car off the lot. Also, we have pretty much decided it is worth it for us to lease for 39 months and we come out financially even and get to upgrade to a new one at that time. We definitely need to make the deal first and then determine the lease rates from the negotiated price, correct? Thanks!

Toyotime, I used the online version of the consumer reports car buying kit to learn all about the pricing. It was very useful. It gave me a starting point when talking to Toyota salespeople, who after I threw out a starting figure (CR wholesale price + $1000), they all said something to the effect that wouldn't be able to sell at that price, that their invoice price was higher. Of course invoice is higher, that's the accounting game dealers play. Anyway, after visiting 5 dealerships and negotiating from the bottom up, I was able to get a feel of what their bottom line was. So if I did not get the best possible deal, I think I got a fair deal. And even if I was able to go back and forth some more and maybe save a couple of hundred bucks, after a while it's not worth it, my time is valuable and I wanted the car and had received what I thought was a fair quote. And now that I've had the Sequoia for a month I'm very happy with my purchase.

Based on my consumer reports printout, I think that's about $300 over invoice so I'd say your getting a good deal. But I'd recommend you buy the Consumer Reports report yourself and make sure that all the correct options included, my analysis might have missed something or included something extra.

I ran the TMV report in Edmunds and found the price is about $1100 over TMV's invoice. is there normally some delta between consumer report and Edmunds TMV, or they should be the same?

I just made a deal for a new '04 Sequoia SR5 4 x 4 in Ohio with the following options:
17" Alloy Wheel Package
Few other small options
Final Price: $36,100 plus tax and title.
This included a $2000 dealer cash incentive so the dealer is still making $500 on the deal. He has to pay someone $100 to go pick it up out-of-town.
This Sequoia is Silver with Black Pearl emblems and I'm not sure what those look like. Anyone know?

is the $2000 dealer cash incentive only good for '04 Sequoia? is it also available for a '05 Sequoia?
