Question Buying a new Toyota Sequoia-Pricing Help?

I am looking for a 2010 Sequoia SR5 2WD, leather, roof, tow package and upgraded sport wheels.

Anyone made a deal on one lately and want to share pricing or any other information that might be helpful? I am in Houston if that makes a difference.

Just research online what incentives (if any) for your area, then call the largest toyota store, talk to the fleet manager, have him or her fax you a copy of the invoice and deal from there.

Do you happen to have AAA? Their auto buying site is one of the best I have found, basically offering vehicles for below listed dealers cost. The basic 2010 Tundra 4.6 SR5 that I had priced came in at $21k...

Here is a link....http://www.aaasouth.com/automotive/auto_buying.aspx

Go to cars.com and you can add all of the options and see the invoice and MSRP prices for everything itemized. Dealers hate people like this because the retail price is supposed to be a mystery number. They will sell a car very close to retail right now, maybe plus a couple hundred bucks.

I bought my 2010 tundra back in june. I had this printed out in a notebook. I did some preliminary negotiations. I told him every package I wanted and at what price I wanted it. Of course he acted like hell would freeze over if they sold it for that price and I was crazy. I stood firm and then whipped out my magic sheet of knowledge and told him to go get his and we'd compare. He didn't like that I could tell him that retail on the heated mirrors is $63 and I wouldn't be paying him the $146 that he was supposed to get.

He went and got his sheet and we did some comparing. They were identical except his was about $1000 higher because of documentation fees, detail fees, fee for the guy to inspect it when it came off the truck... and so on. I told him the only fee on there he can't get rid of is the destination fee (which is included in the cars.com report) and that I won't pay any of the other ones. He told me he couldn't get rid of those fees. I told him "maybe YOU can't, but your manager can" so the sales manager came out and wiped them clean. (another thing you should do: while the sales manager was there I made him sign in writing that any time my car was in the shop for anything under warranty or my first five free oil changes that I got a loaner car. This has already paid off for me, they give me a camry to 'test drive' and dont even ask you to put gas in it)

anyway, the site can be a little tricky to get around, but I did one for your car
Summary for the SR5 5.7L V8 4dr 4x2
Base MSRP: $39,655 Retail:$35,689
Destination $975 $975
Sport Appearance Package $691 $553

Total Price $41,321 $37,217

Sport appearance is basically 20" wheels and second row captain seats.
I just read back your first post and realized I didn't put leather in there. I think you have to go limited for that and thats a whole new ball game. Also this is New car prices, didn't know if you might be talking used

Bought one for the wife, we really like it so far, but can't really help you out on price because we didn't get the sr5. I can tell you they did go down about 5k I think without much arguement.

Toyota contributes millions of dollars to groups such as the Audobon Society whose goal is to close down our beaches.They have already succeeded in Hatteras, NC.. As far as I'm concerned, if you buy a Yota, you are contributing tto the closing of our beaches.. Just somthing to think about

I posted the price for a sequoia, just stating that the same principles for buying should apply as my tundra.

I live in Oklahoma, this does not affect me. Plus I'd rather support the audobon society than support gay rights by owning a Ford. I guess I support GM whether I like it or not since my tax dollars go to bailing out companies that can't support themselves.

A couple of ideas for you:

The Jim Barkley Toyota website mentioned above posts discounted prices including incentives on their website. At least it is a guideline.

Check the message boards at the Edmunds site. There will be one for prices paid and buying experience by model.

Try pricing it through carsdirect.com. It is easy and another guideline.

Good luck.

That is the most shallow answer to date on THT, "it doesnt affect me". Nice.

I have bought from Barkley and used his price as leverage to purchase two other Toyota's.
They post the price on there site and in the windshield of the vehicle. Pay their price or go somewhere else. It turns out they had the best price.

Oh and I suppose you're posting from Darfur where you're trying to stop the genocide. Maybe you're just trying to shut down the blood diamond operation.

Oh hey, the Ozone has a hole in it. Bet you ran out and bought a hybrid car and a sailboat.

That's what I like to see.

Simple and to the point.

Fleet guys like to see that too!

The only thing more flawed than your generalizations is your rationale.

Doughnut, leave Ryan Darrow alone, you know he is dealing with a girlfriend that has a stinky dog and he has gay issues, that's alot of angst on any man's plate.

Made sense to me.

He's is "picking" the causes that interest him. Just like you "pick" the causes that interest you. We all do it. I thought that he made a pretty good point.
