Toyota's not what they used to be?

2003 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
Overall the 2003 Sequoia is a very good family car, but lots of issues. Here is a list of problems and you'll see 3 of them are the same type of problem! 1) Inside door handle broke (was replaced while on warranty). 2) Gas gauge on the instrument panel is no longer working and reads empty when it is not. 3) Left rear passenger "Inside door handle" broke (not on warranty) 4) Back door window won't roll down 5) Right front passenger "Inside door handle" broke 6) Back door hatch "Handle" broke and now cannot open the back door at all. These door handles are just cheap plastic and would think Toyota should be replacing them by something stronger?
Very good family car for a large family. Nice looking car.
Stronger door handles that DO NOT break when a child opens the door. These are heavy doors and Toyota makes them using cheap plastic instead of a metal type door handle. Better gas mileage. Smoother ride and tires that last longer.
