OH What a Failing

2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Got rid of a Trailblazer. Picked the Sequoia for Toyota reliability. Almost immediately observed a problem with oil pressure. Dealer had no clue ("never seen that before"). Went to arbitration, corporate ultimately claimed - ready for this?- "they all do that." Aside from hoping the engine doesn't seize, it's a nice driving vehicle, well suited to its purpose. I want to get rid of it, though. Toyotas are good if you get a good one. If you get a bad one, be advised you're on your own.

Best Features

Roomy, good visibility, tourque, safety. Beats a minivan.

Worst Features

Tailgate is awkward and heavy. Heavy is good, but it needs better assist. Toyota's attitude that they never build a bad vehicle.
