So Far So Good
By rangermutt on
2001 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
I purchased this used the summer of 2011 with 130,000 miles on the odometer and would never have purchased it with that many miles had I not seen records of the service that the original owner religiously followed at a local Toyota dealership. A new transmission was put in at just under 60k miles but otherwise the areas of complaint that I have read about including undersized brakes, frame rust-through and cracked exhaust headers I have not experienced (yet). I installed a trailer brake controller for towing a twin-axle 14 foot cargo trailer with GVWR of 6,500 lbs. I will also be driving it in the winter when the snow is too deep for my Miata.
Great looks (two-tone forest green/gray exterior) with plush looking/feeling gray interior, very nice ride for a 4x4, power rear window (haven't seen this since my '80 Bronco), acceleration, automatic climate control front and rear.
It's odd that items that should be standard are not included in a vehicle in this price range including auto-dimming mirror, compass, outside thermometer, lit vanity mirrors and remote key. The CD player does not play home recorded CD's and the radio reception is dismall, poor gas mileage for a small V8,
