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.

I live in Maryland and just purchased a 4X4 Sequoia SR5 that had all of the options other than DVD, Navigation, and air suspension and got a great deal from Carmax (Laurel Toyota) in Laurel, MD. The sticker was $44600 and I ended up getting it for $38900 after the $750 rebate and another $600 rebate (which gets taken off the "no haggle" price shown on the sticker)that only Carmax is offering until the end of this year on all Toyotas. The buying experience was also the best I have ever experienced and I ended up getting $1,400 more for my trade in than three other dealerships were willing to give me. Hope this information helps some of you in the area looking to purchase this great vehicle!

Looking to buy a Sequoia in Austin TX. Can anyone recommend a dealer in Austin/Dallas/Houston or San Antonio. I will gladly buy through the internet as well although I need to complete this by the end of the year to take advantage of the expiring tax loophole for vehicles of that size. Also what will be a reasonable price for a fully loaded 2005 Sequoia limited.

You got a decent price, according to the research I did with Edmunds and working with 5 dealerships in southern California. The only dealer that was a rip-off, was one that does not work with Edmunds. I was lucky enough to get a blue SR5 with a $38,174 MSRP for $33,078, which is about $400.00 under invoice. The experience I had was so fast and easy it was scary. I got the quote from Simi Valley Toyota. I went there the next day. I signed a few forms, they gave me the keys and I left. The rip-off was at Hamer Toyota. The best "deal" they offered for the SR5 with everything I got from Simi was a used SR5 for $36,000. Work with Edmunds dealers, get several quotes, and if you can, go to Simi Toyota.

Thanks to Edmunds, I went to local dealers armed with knowledge. I went to Hamer Toyota before researching on Edmunds. I did not feel as if I was getting a "deal" at all. I wanted a Sequoia with running boards. A salesman told me the best thing he could do was give me 15% off running boards if I bought them from their parts department. Then he told me if I want a good price on a Sequoia with the options I really needed, I could buy the used model on their lot for $36,000. I went home and checked out Edmunds. I found 4 dealers. Simi Valley Toyota offered me a blue SR5 with a $38,174.00 MSRP for $33,078.00. This price is a few hundred dollars under invoice. I could not believe the speed and ease of buying this vehicle. I was in and out so fast, I did not even have time to drink a cup of stale dealership coffee. WOW!

I am getting an OTD price of $37,179 for an 2005 SR5 RWD Sequoia over here in jax, florida with the following options
- Leather Package
- Alloy package 2
- Convenience package
- Key less entry
- 6 cd changer
- wood interior
- carpet mats,cargo/trunk
- fog and driving lights
- daytime running lights
- windows tinted
- Roof rack
Is that a good buy? I am just curios as to whether to make this a deal before the year end as we are getting a good financing package from toyota for dec 2004. I am afraid if i will loose that special.
Is it better to buy this year or wait for another couple of months more.

No sunroof? If that includes TTL, that's pretty good. I'm getting quotes for $36500 for the same type truck, but with sun roof, night vision mirror, side turn signals, convience package, tow package, spoiler, and heated seats.. Please tell me what kind of financing package Toyota is offering you..
