#1812 of 1842 money factor and residual on Sequoia SR5 4x4 5.6l
Jan 03, 2011 (12:05 pm)
Just came back from a dealer in Manassas, VA on this SUV.
Cap Cost 41460
money factor: .00235
The residual and money factor are way off from what I was expecting (23,725 and .0018) based on internet research.
The price is good but they would not move on residual or money factor. They showed me various documents from Toyota that these are standard and immutable numbers.
Why should I believe these dealer documents? There seems not to be any accurate site where a consumer can look these numbers up.

That is Wack!
You could lease an X5 or Mercedes GL for that much.

for some reason the reply i posted earlier did not come up..
going through the costco auto buying program, one of the dealers offered me an sr5 4x4 for 39600. i was told that price was $1000. under invoice and almost 5k below msrp. . i offered 39000. but the dealer said no.. i dont know if he was telling me the truth but he said there are certain guidelines from toyota that they (the dealer) must follow when dealing with costco customers.. so i told him i would meet him at 39300 and it was not accepted....
its funny how things happen.. the day after i got the sr5 4x2, the salesman calls me up and said he can make the deal at 39300.
i told him sorry but too late...

#1820 of 1842 Dealer Experience- Houston- 2010 Cert. Seq Limited
Feb 01, 2011 (11:18 am)
We purchased a Certified 2010 Sequoia Limited yesterday from Don McGill. We went through the Internet department and dealt with Kris Tate. Overall it was a very easy experience compared to any others we've had in the non-luxury car segment. I was pleasantly surprised. Kris was very straight foward on the deal and didn't play games. There wasn't any real haggling or back and forth to the manager's office. They gave us a realistic price for our trade immediately- and he had the car ready for us to demo upon our arrival at the dealership. They let us take it home over Sunday with no pressure at all. The price came down slightly (few hundred dollars) from the posted price on the web. We had them add a remote starter in that price and the deal was done.
I will say that the finance office gave us some questionable moments. There was a spiel about how Toyota's warranty after the first 12 months only covers "defects" but if something can't be proven as defective that it would not be covered. It honestly pissed me off that they basically said Toyota would not stand behind its vehicle and made it sound that we would be in a semantics battle over every repair. It was almost enough to make me walk from the deal and go find another SUV. My husband however, saw it as a scare tactic to press the extended warranty rather than a true stance from Toyota and so we proceded with the purchase. We also had to double check the numbers several times because we couldn't quite get things to match up. So, we brought the deal to a halt while we calculated everything ourselves. After several revisions and reprints, we finally signed and were on our way. Overall I would say we had a good buying experience with Don McGill. Just be cautious in Finance (as is the case in any dealership).
We also obtained quotes on new Sequoias from several other internet managers, and I will say all in all that it's definitley the way to go. There doesn't seem to be the game playing and you save yourself a lot of time and frustration doing the bulk of the search online once you decide what model you want. All of the internet sales people I dealt with were extremely pleasant and prompt in responding.

I hope you're as happy with your Sequoia as I am with mine. Over the last 8 months I've put a little over 32000 miles on it. I didn't have any problems with the dealer when I bought my Sequoia but last month I bought my wife a Highlander and the dealer started playing games with the extended warranty. I told the dealer that if I did buy an extended warranty it would only be one offered by Toyota and not a third party. At the very end when I was signing the papers I notice that he had the paperwork on a third party warranty. I had to force the issue to get the Toyota warranty instead.
Overall the Sequoia is a GREAT car! It does like fuel though, so if your tight on money, this might not be the right vehicle. I've had mine in the snow as well as rain and it always handles predictably in every situation. Great brakes, plenty of power, tight turning and luxurious.
This was my first Toyota because I've always been a GM man. But i was so impressed with Toyota that as I said earlier I just bought another one. So far over the last 8 months I've spent 100k with these folks and I'm very happy
