#947 of 1843 How Desparate are Car Dealers right now???
Jun 26, 2007 (9:09 pm)
I am trying to purchase a 2007 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4X2 (MSRP 43,500). The best quote I have received so far is $36,798 or $6,702 below MSRP ($40,887 out-the-door). Has anyone received better or worse quotes for a similar vehicle, just curious how low they will go. Follow up question, I noticed the ship and invoice date on one of the quotes was 10/16/06, does this mean that the dealer has had this car on their lot for 8 months? I find it hard to believe a Sequoia has been sitting on a lot for 8 months without being sold. Thanks for any input you folks have.
#948 of 1843 SR5 w/ option package E
Jun 28, 2007 (1:16 pm)
I am looking for a Phantom Gray SR5 4WD with option package E in the Denver area. That includes the convenience package, roof rack, 6 CD changer, alloy wheel package #2, keyless entry, fog lights, preferred package (leather), daytime running lights, moon roof, preferred accessory package and auto dimming mirror.
MSRP (incl. destination) 44,207
Edmunds Invoice 38,701
Edmunds TMV 40,361
Dealer and broker offer 39,500
Of course, the dealer wants $289 in dealer handling fees. Both are also offering the $1,500 incentive or 1.9/36, 2.4/48 or 3.9/60 in lieu of the incentive.
They both tell me that I'm getting invoice pricing. Should I push harder?

Things moved quickly and they worked with me a bit on my trade. So here's where I ended up.
MSRP of 44,207
Offer price 39,444 (100 below invoice?)
Trade for '99 4Runner Limited w/ 97,100 miles 9,200
Out-the-door-price: 32,739. Thats new - trade + tax.
No other fees or charges from the dealer.
#950 of 1843 2007 Artic Pearl LTD (LOADED)
Jul 04, 2007 (9:41 am)
I am looking to get a 2007 LTD (Artic Pearl) w/Luxury, NAV, and a bunch of other goodies. MSRP on buyatoyota.com is $52,701. The exact car is available at two local dealers (DC Metro). Both are offering an internet price of around $44k which is about $1700 below invoice. I assume they are including the $2k rebate in this number.
What do you think about looking elsewhere, or waiting? Will it be worth it? The reason I may not wait is we are trading in a 2005 Sienna XLE LTD and I think it's value will go down along with the price of the Sequioa if I wait for the next model year release in September.

Maybe it is too early to wonder, but how is Toyota actually able to sell any Sequoias these days. Each month I expect that $3+ gas, low mpg and a new model year pressures will cause Toyota to provide sales incentives similar to last year....instead I see the same $2k that has been there for months now...last year with many of the same pressures (but no model change) Toyota came through with $6k incentives... what is going on here? How much did they scale down production? Any word on when the incentives will change? Maybe they will time the incentive change with news about the new models?.?>?

I don't know about everyone else, but the Sequioa just fit our needs. We are having our second child and routinely haul lots of kids around. The 4Runner just wasn't cutting it anymore. We also have a pop-up camper to tow and the wife didn't like how the 'Runner did with that.
So, we started down the road of a Sienna and a Tundra (so I could pull my '78 FJ40 AND the pop-up) but I did the calculation of the gas on the Tundra as my daily driver and that killed the idea. So, a big SUV was the solution, along with my current '98 Outback with 120k miles on it, which will last at least 50k more.
We considered the usual suspects: Durango, Yukon, Tahoe, Expedition, Armada, Sequoia. I like the fold-flat seats of some of the others, but in the end I just couldn't stomach buying a domestic and the Armada is plagued with reliability problems. So the Sequoia won.

#955 of 1843 Was this a good deal or what!?!?!
Aug 31, 2007 (8:38 am)
I just bought a 2007 4x2 Limited Sequoia, with the following options: Z1(preferred accessory pkg), EY(DVD system), NV(navigation), HP(hood protector), E5(exhaust tip), RF(rear spoiler), WL(wheel locks)
The MSRP was just over $47,000, and I got it for $39,180 plus tax and license which made totaled $43,000. I also got the extended warranty for 7 years for $1500, down from $2195 (not included in the price above). I know they have to 08s coming soon, but I don't need a bigger SUV with an even thirstier engine! Got it at Concord Toyota thru the Internet Dept.
