#8426 of 8984 Re: Vibrating, Shuttering, or Wobbling while Driving [bp3959]
Dec 24, 2004 (8:11 am)
I just purchased a new 2004 Sequoia Limited and have experienced the same problem from day one. Returned to the dealer, had the tieres rotated and balanced twice, dealers said it was the Dunlop tires. Had the tires replaced with GOodyear Wranglers and the problem persists. Trying to work the issue with Toyota Motor Sales USA but appear to be getting the run around. Vibration is in the steering and even with the new tires no luck. Dealers suggested I pay him $1200.00 for new michilens but this did not seem reasonable since the vehicle did not have 100 miles on it when I first brought it to their attention. The dealer now claims it is Toyota's problem not theirs. Any further suggestions or recommendations?

I can't seem to find bp3959's post that you seem to be refering too. I do seem to remember something like this posted in the past on this forum. It may have had to do with the driveshaft. Try doing a search of the board and maybe you'll find some information. Good luck and Happy Holidays.
#8428 of 8984 Seqouia - should I buy one or pass?

I have done extensive research on the Sequoia. I have also considered other very popular SUVs such as the Volvo XC90, the Acura MDX and the Honda Pilot. Each obviously offers something different. I currently have a 2003 Jeep Liberty and want more room and the highest IRS tax deduction possible, which led me to the Sequoia SR5 (along with Toyota's reliability record).
The bottom line, is that I am only hesitant to buy due to the gas mileage, which seems to be only slightly lower than these other brands. PLEASE shed some light with your advice on obtaining this vehicle, its ACTUAL fuel economy, reliability and overall size. I must add that due to the end of the year, I have had some VERY attractive pricing this weekend that is making such a purchase very enticing.
Thanks in advance!

We had a Pilot and used to get somewhere between 16-20 mpg in it. We wanted more room so we bought a 2005 Sequoia a couple months ago. We now have 2k miles on it and have been getting 15-18 mpg with it.
I have been very pleased with the mileage considering the size. The Pilot had a smaller tank in it too so we needed to fill it every 250-300 miles. The Sequoia can go over 350 miles on a tank.

My '05 Sequoia got average 18.2 mpg (showing up in the trip computer) she now has 1500 miles on the mileage.
If your speed is around 60, mpg can be around 20,
but if you go up to 75, mpg will down to around 14.
my 2 cents info...

Picked up a new 04 sr5 w/25 miles on it about a month ago. last 04 on the lot. Got what I believe is a great deal. $34,100, roughly $1200 under invoice and $2200 under TMV. Pretty much loaded, side airbags, sunroof w/deflector, cloth interior, 17" wheels, auto dim mirror. Drives great after 1200 miles.
