beware the AC
By wishicouldrecommend on


2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


would love to recommend the sequoia,
but can't. with less than 10,000 miles
of easy driving, ours is back in the
shop a 3rd time for a broken AC. there
is a technical service bulletin on the
AC problems, so it is an acknowledged
problem. first, the compressor seized
causing $1,700 worth of warranty
repairs. now, the AC mostly doesn't
work. service department doesn't know
what's wrong. they seem to be
guessing. for $40,000, and being a
toyota, this experience has been a true
disappointment. the only other person
i know with a sequoia had the same
problems. what are the chances? well,
it tells me that this must be a fairly
widespread problem.

Best Features

most of the car is great if you need/want an SUV.

Worst Features

lack of operable AC makes all of the great features worthless. buyer beware unless you're content to risk all that money and possibly not have an AC or end up in the shop countless times and possibly not get it repaired.
