When we would looking for a Sequoia what we discovered is the dealers would sit on the trucks until they either got close to a full asking price offer OR they would just send the vehicle to auction. I "followed" several vehicles from the lots where they sat for 90+ days to the auction where they sold. IMO the process just seems to be to move them around the country till they find the right buyer. I found several one owner vehicles that had been sold at 3 or more auctions around the country since the owner traded the vehicle in.

When I inquired about these vehicles and tried to deal, I was rebuked and told that they were in high demand - Maybe but if that were the case they shouldn't be sitting on the lot for 90+ days or getting sent to auction...

As for Highlanders...Groove Toyota had 10+ of them on the used lot a couple months ago...I felt they were way overpriced for what you got.
