    I just talked to a dealer in Winston Salem, NC and he said the new 2010 Sequoias were not expected in until mid June. Anyone hearing anything different?

    I bought my Limited yesterday in San Diego, CA. The MSRP was 50,900 and they offered 11,000 off all Sequoias. I have shopped this same deal around, because, yes, there are a glut of Sequoias in So Cal. Other dealers, including Cerritos Toyota, are offering 10K off MSRP. If we weren't impatient to get the registration fee prior to April 1st (in California., all registration fees will double, per Arnold), I would have waited. Since when do car prices increase over time?

    one more thing, there seem to be several models with gray interior and far fewer w/ tan interior. I prefer the tan & it had all of the features I needed, so we went ahead w/ the purchase.

    Finally, they were poised to make their deal by making their biggest bucks on my trade in and on extended warranties. I passed both up. Also the financing deal was lousy 6.9%, so I put 60% cash down.
  • Has anyone heard anything regarding 2010 Sequoias...Are they making them? When?

    Can I ask where in San Diego you got this? I am looking for one as well.
  • I talked to a dealer today who claimed they are in production now. He said they should be getting one in a week or two and another by the end of May.

    The dealer also said they are not going to be pumping them out like in the past so selection will be very limited. I think that may also make them tougher to deal on the price.
  • Found the information on this forum was helpful when I was shopping for my Sequoia so I figured I would provide the details on my recent purchase.

    I bought my Sequoia Limited in New England as this seem to be the nearest area to me to have it configured with the captain's chairs the way I wanted. The dealers on Long Island have the 8 passenger seating only. I called this dealership back in September and they had the same two Limiteds on the lot back then as when I called this time. By April of this year, they had both been sitting there for almost a year.

    The following factory options came with the car:

    Cold kit-----------------------200.00
    Rear spoiler------------------100.00
    Running lights----------------40.00
    Power Moonroof------------810.00
    Carpeted Floor Mats----290.00
    Back up camera---------695.00

    Total MSRP with destination was $51,270. I had them throw in all weather floor mats (including for the 3rd row), a cargo cover, and Simoniz paint sealant for free.

    I took the $4,000 rebate and paid $39,180 + TTL.. The dealer was also able to beat my credit union's financing rate - I got 4.4% for 60 months through their lender.

    Negotiated every over the phone and there were no surprises when I went to sign the paperwork. The car was prepped perfectly and looked like it just rolled off the showroom floor.

    I was a little hesitant about buying a car that had been sitting on the lot for almost a year with the old gas still in it and the possibility of flat spots on the tires. However, I have no problems with the car whatsoever. Very happy with the purchase.

    FYI, I just sent a feeler around the Washington DC area dealerships to see if we were down to this price level yet, and so far, one dealership has emailed me back on a Platinum model with a MSRP of $58,155. They said they would try to see if they could get a $43,616.25 price on it. Not sure if this is a Demo model. I will keep you posted.

    Does anyone know the incentives being offered for May on the Sequoia?
  • In Northern CA. it looks like 3500.00 cash back or 1.9% APR.
  • I just got a quote for a SR5 with the following:

    Vehicle Base Model: $ 38500.00
    Deluxe AM/FM/Six-CD Changer with 8 Speakers: $ 200.00
    Roof Rack
    Cold Kit Includes:
    Auto-Dimming Rear View Mirror with Compass,Homelink and Lamp:
    Running Boards:
    Rear Spoiler
    Daytime Running Lights (DRL) with On/Off
    Tow Prep Package Plus Tow Hitch
    Carpeted Floor Mats/Door Sill Protector
    Wheel Locks (Alloy)

    Total .......................................: $ 41666.00
    Invoice was $37500.00
    Gave an additional discount so final before Tax an Lic : $36600.00

    This was not taking the $3500.00 dollar discount instead taking the 1.9% 60 month.

    What do you guys think good deal or not? Really wanted the leather but hard to find without stepping up to the Limited.
  • It is 4 WD after getting some more numbers I'm thinking I could maybe get it for 35000~35500.
  • I've been phone-quoted the same price as you ($36600), all features identical except mine was missing spoiler (here in NorCal) I offered less, he hardly budged. Let me know how it goes with you.

    Deflation has not taken prices to this threshold. Based on my inquiry and responses from dealers, I believe we are still in the 15%-18% MAX range as far as prices paid off MSRP are concerned for 2008 Sequoias still on the lots. Whether prices move toward the 25% mark will depend on whether this S&P move up is really a sucker's rally or the real deal. If economy is truly having signs of life, then we may be at a line in the sand on this pricing and not be able to expect much more of a discount on 2008s. They will simply sit and collect dust, but not go much lower. However, I will not buy a 2008 until we reach at least a 22%-off MSRP threshold, and that would have to mean more deflation . . . thus, I will therefore probably end up going with a 2010 with a far lower percentage below MSRP. Of course, we all are aware of the Toyota planned lower production on these 2010 models and higher starting MSRPs. But even with lower supply to support initial pricing on these 2010s, the jury is out on the demand side of the equation. As I said, I am in no rush; (and I have a feeling, I am not alone.) Everyone is aware of Toyota's problems, not only in China, but even here in the US. Unless you HAVE to have the 2010 immediately when released, odds are it will pay to wait and let the summer doldrums convince dealers towards year end that even lowering supply can't fix prices. This is not OPEC. Prices on 2010s will probably drop from unrealistic and overly-optimistic high starting points as we enter the uncertain markets of the Fall and dealers face the music of what is happening in the market for large SUVs. I say now, that between Fall and year end is the best time to plan to act, before the tax break expires. Don't be in a rush this summer to drop 40-60k on a depreciating asset . . .

    Thanks for keeping us updated.

    I certainly hope so.... but I believe there are other factors that can adversely affect this theory:
    1. The government could impose heavy taxation on these "gas" guzzlers ..highly unlikely in this economy but I don't put anything past them/
    2. There is a high probability that the level of SUVs sold will not reach the 2005 -2006 levels, and manufacturers are clamping down hard on production. They could move these vehicles into the niche market zone such as the landcruiser. They've been burnt badly twice: oil bubble followed by the stock market crash
    3. You can already see that GM and Ford have significantly raised prices on these vehicles. Toyota is following suit. Toyota is not in the business of losing money in the long run (such as GM)
    4. I still believe Dec-Mar was the best time to buy these vehicles ,,,, firesale prices (the lowest price I saw was 29k on MSRP of 46k)- with many to be had. Now the choices in the 2008 market is limited (at least in CA)

    Having said that there are 2008s that can be had for 22-25% off MSRP now.... but much fewer than before.

    In Norcal try the following guys:

    For 2WD base SR5 models: Sunnyvale Toyota - you can get them for around 31K
    For 4WD: Hayward Toyota has three in stock
    Piercey Toyota in Milpitas have some low end limiteds

    If you don't mind driving or getting it shipped:
    Desert Toyota of Las Vegas gave me good pricing on a Nautical Blue 4WD SR 5- almost 10K off MSRP

    Goodluck!!!!

    I was pretty thorough in my price inquiries, and even though I told them I was a cash buyer and would walk in and buy same day, I unfortunately could not get any dealers in Wash DC area into the 22-25% below MSRP threshold like you are apparently seeing in CA. I know CA has much worse unemployment, and that could be a factor for the discount you are seeing. But employment overall in DC area is still very good compared to nation at large, and best I am finding is still only 18-19% below MSRP.

    I'm in no rush, so willing to wait until these dealers throw in the towel on the '08s and get down to your 25% threshold that you have in CA. Not lots of Platinums on lots out here, but there is still a decent selection of Limiteds.

    Interesting to see how this all plays out . . .
  • If you tell them your coming down you can get it for 36,000 no problem, I think even 35,500 if you work at it.

    I kind of up the options from my last quote and this is what I'm finding.

    I've been able to narrow down some quotes for 2008 SR5 equipped as follows:

    JBL Premium AM/FM/CD with Six-Disc
    Cold Kit Includes: Windshield Wiper
    Leather-Trimmed Doors with Integrated
    Power Tilt/Slide Moonroof
    Running Boards
    Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
    Front and Rear Sonar
    Tow Prep Package Plus Tow Hitch
    Cargo Net
    Wheel Locks (Alloy)
    Carpeted Floor Mats/Door Sill Protector

    MSRP 47,000

    Told dealers I'm very serious buyer with 1 week or less buy time some deals bottomed out at 39,300 and two stuck at 38,900 this is with a lot of back and fourth between deals what do you guys think looks like a good deal. I think if I tell them I'm coming I can get to 38,500.
