#16 of 35 Try Canada for Sequoias

The best place for you to find 2010 Sequoia's maybe Canada. Try Kingsway Toyota in Edmonton, AB Canada. I bought my Sequoia from them, albeit I live here, but they have Sequoias in inventory. Try reaching them online at http://kingsway.toyota.ca

thisey: Can you share how much you paid for your Sequoia?
I ordered a 2010 SR5 in Canada and they just gave me about $1400 off MSRP.
When I see that they can get almost $9K off MSRP in California for a 2010, that makes me sick.

I paid 61 for my Ltd. They included an Alpine DVD Player and three wireless headphones for the kids...floor mats throughout...bug deflector...trailer brake installed and gave me what I wanted for my Suburban on trade.
#19 of 35 Special Order Refused
Sep 04, 2009 (5:05 am)
I was able to negociated a price on a 2010 4wheel drive SR 5 Sequoia with two different dealerships. The negociated prices at one dealership was $2,490 off sticker and the second price was $2,890 off sticker price. I think I got the short end of the stick but I wanted the vehcile and was willing to order from the second dealership.
The fun begins a couple days later when I am told that Southeast Toyota Distributors will not order any 4 wheel drive Sequoias not equiped with the E-85 FLEX FUEL ENGINE. I called Southeast Toyota Distributors and was informed by them that Toyota Motor Sales USA will not allow them to order the vehicle from them without the FLEX FUEL ENGINE. (NO ONE) was able to give me a reason why a vechicle I am paying a lot of money for has to be equiped with The E85 FLEX FUEL ENGINE. The closest explanation I was given (QUOTE) Its kind of like when your mother told you no because I said so. I was told that if I wanted the (7919) AKA SR5 4 wheel drive 5.7liter NON_FLEX FUEL ENGINE I woud have to buy outside of the 5 state area controled by Southeast Toyota Distributors from a dealership supplied by Toyota Motor Sales.
I have numerous reasons why I will not buy a vehicle equiped with the modifications required on the 5.7 liter engine to run on E85 ethanol.The point is Toyota sales over all were down 40 percent and they want to tell me what engine I must have.The SR 5 can be equiped with three different engines if you live outside the five state area that I live in. The sad fact is this would have been the fourth toyota product that I was involved in buying. Great job Toyota Motor Sales terminate a for sure sale.

go wtih the QX56. check edmunds.com TMV. there should be some nice discounts going on. A base QX is much better equipped than SR5.

I have considered the Qx56 based opon the quality I have experienced with my wifes Infiniti. I like the quality of Nissan / Infiniti products. Toyota is following the bad example of Government Motors. GM failed to meet the needs of thier customers and we see where that went.

You are right it is ridiculous and I will not play thier game. I think if you wait they will have to give you a break on the price.Nissian is offering 4500 off the 2010 Armada and 6000 off the 2010 QX56 .
Price out the SR 5 you want on carsdirect.com and you will do better than talking to a floor sales person. I have found that it is better to by pass the floor sales people and ask to speak to the fleet manager or internet manager. The last three Toyotas that I negotiated for were 1800 less than any offer given to me by a floor sales person for the same vehicle. You also might want to try and buy the vehicle at the very end of the month and help them meet thier quota. Edmunds and Kelley Blue Book are not up to speed on prices for the options on the 2010 Sequoia. You should also try true car .com they break down actual prices paid for your vehicle in your area. Good Luck
#24 of 35 SR5 w/ 5.7L engine
Sep 12, 2009 (7:04 pm)
I was interested in the SR5 w/ the bigger motor in IL, but was told that this configuration is not available here. I dont want to pay for the extra stuff on the limited which I dont need. Leather seats? Optitron gauges? This is supposed to be a UTILITY vehicle is it not? Is this dealer full of BS or is that really the situation? Where in the US can you get the SR5 w/ 5.7L engine? Maybe I will just go with the 'burban because you can order that however you want.

The SR 5 as shown in the 2010 pamphlet indicates 3 different engines are available in the SR 5 including the 5.7 liter. Try another dealer. I know that if you live in south east you cannot get a non-flex fuel engine in a 4x4 which by the way is a 5.7 liter engine. If you wanted the 4.6liter in a 4x4 forget it .This non-sense also applies to the Tundra 4x4. The only engine available in any 4x4 in the southeast is the 5.7 flex fuel engine. I have been informed by the mangement of one dealer there is about 15 gas stations in my state that sell E85 ethanol. Why would anyone want to buy a truck or suv with a fuel delivery system made more complicated to use a fuel that is crap and not available.
Toyota wants you to buy their product but tell you what engine you can have in different areas of the country even though three are made for the SR5.
