Buying the Sequoia

We decided this weekend to go ahead and purchase, for our upcoming fifth wedding anniversary, the Toyota Sequoia that we’ve been wanting to get. We really wanted to get it before we made our trip back to Texas this Christmas. We figured there was no time like the present. Jennifer did all the research: she found out the Kelly Blue Book value of my truck and the value of the Sequoia with all the options that we wanted. We found this really helpful when we went in to the dealership. We had one of our neighbors come over and watch Abby and Emily while we took my Blazer to the dealership. We were in a little bit of a hurry because the neighbor could only stay for a couple of hours. This turned out to work in our advantage. The salesman didn’t want us walking out without a deal in hand. We went back and forth for a little bit, but we settled in with the car priced a little bit under the Kelly Blue Book value and them giving us a little bit more for my Blazer. So, we figured we got a fairly good deal. The Sequoia is “steel blue” with leather interior. We also had them put a DVD player in with televisions in the head rests so that the girls can watch TV on the trip back to Texas. We don’t have the truck yet. It’s in mid-production and we will be getting it by the end of the month. I will have a picture of it, once we get it. The one pictured is just one off of Toyota’s web site.
