$400 over Invoice
That was the best I could do for a 2005 4wd SR5 in California. I got 1 of only 2 white SR5 4wd in the state at the time of purchase. The selling dealership didnt even have the vehicle listed on inventory in an effort to hide it from other dealerships. I found it by sneaking onto thier satellite storage lot one morning!
Edmunds was wrong about the $750 dealer market support. I asked many dealerships about it and they all said no and one even produced the actual dealer print-out of factory programs and incentives. I was surprised at how difficult the Toyota dealerships where to negotiate with. This was by far the most tiresome purchase. Toyota dealers seem to know they can sell product easily and have no need to work deals. I even had to search my own buy bid to get an extra $1000 on the trade-in.
In the end, it was all worth it once I got that wonderful vehicle in my garage.

was that 37500 drive out price? i am getting quotes here in dallas for loaded up 2005, RWD, SR5's for 36,500 w/o TTL... Edmunds and carpoint (www.msnautos.com) price out the invoice on these closer to 35,000.. I know Toyota shows you the invoice, but that includes a 2% dealer hold back, in which the manufacture gives back to the dealers quarterly.. it's about $850 bucks that the dealer gets when selling trucks at thier "invoice" price..

Hi zebramoray, you might also post in our topic called Questions About Financing New Vehicles to see what rate you should expect the pay, whether it's through Toyota or another lender.

Edmunds is showing $750 in Marketing Support for 2005 Sequoias. Unfortunately, this is not the case according to Toyota dealers and CarsDirect.
Where did Edmunds get their info???
TDA = Toyota Dealer Advertising (fee).

Note about the Dealer incentive. It DOES exist (at least in the central Atlantic region) but you aren't supposed to know about it. I just ordered an 05 Sequoia and I was using that incentive as part of my negotiation. I called 1-800-GO-TOYOTA on 12/17/2004 and they confirmed it existed, along with 750 cash to customer. My dealer called the same number on 12/21 right in front of me and it somehow disappeared. I called Toyota Corporate and was told I shouldn't have been made aware of it; they couldn't confirm it, but said my information was not inaccurate. I told them it was on Edmunds for the world to see. My dealer agreed to sell a decked out 2005 4WD SR5 with Nav/leather/sunroof, etc. for invoice + TDA + processing.
