What happened to Toyota
By smyroad on


2001 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Five years of ownership, 100,000+ miles. Front suspension broke with no warning (not a recall). VSC randomly malfunctions. Rear door handle snapped off. Interior plastic pieces pop off like popcorn. Rear cargo compartment door won’t stay closed. Radio/CD Player sounds like a close-n-play. Emergency brake that requires adjustment every 1,000 miles. Brakes squeal when backing up – Service Department calls it Normal. Constant steering input required to keep it straight ahead – even on calm days. At a stop the transmission kicks forward. Feels like someone bumped the rear. Alarm sounds 50% of the time when unlocking the doors. To many to list here.

Best Features

4WD Low moves through the snow as if it did not exist. Easy access to rear seating. Seating for 8. Integrated garage door opener. Power adjustable drivers seat. Ease of removing/folding rear and middle seating. Nice looking SUV.

Worst Features

Make heating controls operable without having to focus attention on the LCD screen as you page through the options using the mode button. Make “Humble” a desired attribute at the service counter.
