2005 Toyota Sequoia Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

All Seqouias that I have seen from 2002-2009 all had similar issues(check engine light, rear window and wiper stop functioning, key fobs break, window rubber gaskets dry and crack, and wheel caps fall off. My brother owns a 2002 Seqouia limited and two friends own 2007 and 2008 Seqouias, all with the same issues. My ‘05 is my first and last Toyota. Never, ever again!

Review

We had to take our Sequoia in to get the entire frame replaced due to a recall. They kept the truck for four months to get the frame done. Once we got the truck back, it has never driven the same. If you have to get your frame replaced, don't, have Toyota buy the truck from you - it will save you a ton of headaches in the long run. Although it is a 2005, the Navigation no longer works, the DVD no longer works and the clock no longer works.

Review

Purchased my 2005 Limited 4x4 with 135k for $6800. Immediately had timing belt, water pump, radiator hoses and serpentine belt changed. Then put all new Denso coils and plugs, air filter, oil change. Have had several issues with a transmission sensor needing replacement, gas cap throwing codes - both easy and inexpensive fixes. Be aware almost all of these trucks will eventually have issues with the SAIS pollution pump system - throwing CEL light and sometimes limp mode. Previous owner had the bypass system installed - I had to add a pressure sensor kit wired to the ECM harness to finally address the issues. Thankfully I was able to do much of this work myself that would have been a fortune in the repair shop. Hence only 4 stars. All great now and should run for another 200k miles. I concur with others that the big tree drives like a large luxury car, has great fit and finish. I invested in an Android head unit to bring the tech to the 21st century. I can ask Siri to play anything on my IPhone through the head unit and make calls, etc. Interior space is huge for this class - all three rows comfortable. Sunroof a plus too. Last truck was a V10 Ford Excursion so about 15 mpg average and up to 18+ highway is not bad at all . Mine is black with grey leather interior and looks like a big vintage Land Cruiser. Also Toyota had a recall on the frames for rusting- had mine inspected - all is fine and getting a free anti- corrosion treatment to the frame - pretty cool. Love this truck!
