#8304 of 8984 Happy new owner
Oct 13, 2004 (10:16 am)
Just bought a new Silver 2004 SR5 4x4 w/sunroof and basic extras for $33,999. Good bargin I think. It's interesting how dealerships vary, one had same Sequoia in black with 500 miles and a burned out headlight. They didn't want to haggle in the $33-34k range for their errand runner. Needless to say I'm thrilled with this vehicle/decision. A no brainer! Did anyone pay Toyota to have the DVD System installed? Is it a seemless integration?
#8305 of 8984 Towing lightweight trailers with your Sequoia?
Oct 19, 2004 (8:59 pm)
Could I get some towing experiences from Sequoia owners who have been towing trailers close to the max. tow limit? I'm looking at lighweight trailers in the 5-6,000 GVWR range which would max out the Sequoia. I'd like to know if you are using a weight distributing hitch and, if possible, if you can compare towing with the Sequoia to other vehicles.
#8306 of 8984 Cabin Filter replacement...

Does anyone know where the cabin filter on an 04 Sequoia is located. I now have 14K and would like to replace the cabin filter.

I've towed a 4,500 pound car on a 2,000 pound trailer, the Sequoia did excellent. Just be careful at night, without a way to level the suspension it'll throw your headlights up in the air.

I routinely tow a 6,000lb. travel trailer with my '01 2wd seq. Took it to Yellowstone from Sacramento, and up to Oregon coast many times, over the I5 summit. Handles great. On the steepest grades I am in the slow lane in second gear going 40-45 mph, could go faster if I wanted to wind it up but I am satisfied. Once you put the weight distribution bars on you should have no problems. I do not use overdrive when towing as it continually kicks in and out.
I don't have mirror extensions I just use fish eye mirrors, and visibility is only OK.
#8309 of 8984 Cabin Filter

To the best of my knowledge there is no cabin filter in the Sequoia.
#8311 of 8984 RE Towing - Thanks Petro33 and raddboy41

Thank you both for your responses. That makes me feel pretty confident that I'm going to be fine.
Raddboy41, thanks for the recommendations on the equalizer hitch and break controller. I'll definitely look at those. Did you get the middle sized equalizer hitch (1000/10000) as opposed to the small one which was 600/6000? Seems the small one would do since the tongue weight on the Sequoia is limited to 500 lbs and I definitely won't be towing more than 6000 lbs, but I guess more is better right?

Your welcome. Definitely go for the 1000/10000 bars as I believe the tongue weight limitation is WITHOUT weight distribution hitch. With the Equalizer hitch and heavier bars, you'll be just fine at 600-650lbs of tongue weight. Even if the trailer is only 5000 lbs, you can realistically expect the tongue weight to be 12%-15% and that's exactly where it should be!
#8313 of 8984 Location of Glass Break Sensor on 05 SR5
Oct 22, 2004 (7:42 am)
Can anyone tell me where the Glass Break sensor is located on the 05 SRg Sequoia?
My manual shows it should be located in the lower console area in one of the available slots directly below the dash. The book shows it has a label on it of "Toyota Security" and "MIC". Is this a misprint, or did I not get my GBS?
Thanks for any help!
