It's great to hear you're still happy after 8 months. We're used to the gas mileage because we had a 4x4 Crew Cab that the Sequoia replaced. I think their gas mileage will be right about the same. This is my first Toyota, so hopefully our experience is as good as yours.

Have owned Toyota's in the past but never long enough to hit 200,000. Looked at a 2001 Sequoia Limited with 200,000 miles tonight and wondering people thoughts on that. Is that a bad purchase with that mileage or do you current Sequoia owners think it has another 100k in it? Thoughts? Vehicle seems to be well maintained.

I sold my 2001 Sequoia with 98,000 miles on it in 2009 after special ordering a new 2010 4x4 Sequoia.
Toyota puts a a great product but a 10 year old vehicle with 200,000 miles has seen its better days.

Thank you Edmunds Forums for all your past help with vehicle information and its now time to contribute. Was originally going to go with the Costco Auto Buying Program for simplicity, but went on Truecar.com for kicks and giggles. You basically input what car you want with options. Got these price quote certificates followed up with some quick telephone calls from local SoCal dealers as well as a few email msgs. With the options above, the average price was $51,500, which was basically invoice. I asked one dealer if they would sell it for below $50K and to my surprise they said yes. So, went there and sure enough, tried to do the bait and switch with a similar car (everything but without the remote start). Dealer said they "just sold" the one with the remote start option. I started to walk out the door and told the "closer guy" that this he was the pure definition of why people hate going to the dealers and talking with a typical car salesman. Bottom line, after a few hours of insisting that a verbal agreement over the telephone should be honored, I got the car.
2012 Limited, Silver Sky Metallic, 4x2 with NAV, DVD, Remote Start and Pref Pkg (carpetted floor mats, cargo net, etc.) = $49995 plus T/L/Docs
#1827 of 1842 2012 Sequoia price paid
Jan 05, 2012 (11:45 pm)
Just adding my two cents....after calling a few dealerships in Orange County, pretty much every dealer could be talked into selling at invoice. We bought a 2012 SR5 with leather/lux package for $500 below invoice at Irvine Toyota. Important to note is that every dealer tried to sneak in the"TDA", or Toyota Dealer Advertising for $649, which has nothing to do with the invoice. Several dealers would not budge on that BS charge....we negotiated it out of the deal completely. MSRPof $46,255, price paid was $41,500.
#1828 of 1842 Are these lease payments for 2012 SR5 4x4 Sequoia for real???
Mar 02, 2012 (11:18 am)
I went to a local Toyota dealership (Towne Toyota, Ledgewood , NJ) to get a monthly lease quote on 2012 SR5 (no other options added). It came out to be $599/month + NJ tax (7%) which was rounded off at $640/month. This is with $2000 down + $500 toyota incentive running promo until April of this year and standard 12, 000 miles/year for 36 months. All the formulas that I know of- when plugging in the selling price ($41, 268) and residual value ($26, 181 instead of $24, 181 that they quoted) point to a payment of $500/month including tax. Where am I getting screwed in this equation??? Shouldn't a residual cost for 2012 Sequoia be more than 52% of the MSRP ($44, 780)? What's the lowest I can go on the final price of this SUV? Thank you all in advance for your posts.
#1829 of 1842 Certified 2010 Platinum 4X4
Mar 31, 2012 (6:42 am)
Just bought it through Sewell Lexus in Fort Worth. I worked with Christina Brown, and she was great to deal with. I am actually working in Brazil at this time, and had no issues with the purchase. I actually had my brother who lives in the Fort Worth area go and test drive it for me. He was very impressed with it, and said that it was in excellent condition.
The only issue now is going to pick it up. I don't get home until the 25th of April. So I am flying my wife, mother, and son to Fort Worth, they will get to visit my brother in the process, and it is cheaper doing it this way than driving. You gotta love frequent flyer miles.

I just purchased a 4WD platinum for $4,800 off sticker which turned out to be about $200 less than Edmund's TMV price. Still it was more over invoice than I wanted to pay. I tried the e-mail method of sending requests to multiple dealers looking for best prices. Very few want to budge on price and no one gets near invoice unless the vehicle is a demo with lots of miles. The offers that came back made me laugh ($1,500 - $2,000 off sticker). One dealer offered me a 2012 demo Platinum with 11,000 miles for $59,000 and wouldn't budge on the price. I quickly found out that buying a Sequoia is nothing like buying a mainstream high volume vehicle like a Camry. The volume is low so basic supply and demand allows them to still sell for a premium. Ultimately I found a dealer that had about 20 in stock which is very rare. I knew exactly what I wanted so went there with checkbook in hand and got the deal done in about 20 minutes. Good luck.
