2003 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
This Sequoia has been a real disappointment. Bought new, and have been paying for problems ever since. Bulb that used to illuminate the D on the dash when car is put in gear burned out. Surprise, this is an $85 repair at the dealer, plus cost of the bulb. Brakes are inadequate and require routine pads and rotors way too often. Figure $400 every 30k miles here. Timing belt and water pump at 90k miles, another $700 plus. Note, others use a timing chain, which doesn't require routine changes at premium prices. A/C has also gone out, as has rear hatch window motor. Toyota's Toyota will do nothing about the defective designs. My first and last Toyota for sure.
Size. Stereo sounds pretty good. Wheels look OK.
Design flaws are numerous. It should not require a trained technician two hours to change a lightbulb.
