2003 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
It is embarassing to drive this car on cold mornings. When it is below 40 degrees out, the motor sounds like there is no oil in it. It taps so loud that people look to see what the clatter is. Toyota corporate claims that this is normal but they will not put it in writing. This vehicle drives like a luxury car. The motor is peppy. The handling is responsive. The moon roof squeaks a lot. the dealer allegedly replaced something but the visible components still had wear marks after the alleged replacement. I think they greased it. it was quiet for about five months. There is also a loud cracking sound from the front end that the dealer has not been able to find (under warranty)
Stability control Panic stop braking. (I used this once and it saved a herd of deer, not to mention my car)
Provide a switch to turn off traction control and stability control. I can not enjoy this car off road, nor can I do donuts in the snow
