#8455 of 8984 What is DVD Pre Wire
Jan 07, 2005 (10:39 am)
I just traded in my 2004 4Runner with 2005 Sequoia SR5 (with nearly all options of limited) in 34750. The MSRP was 40034. Few things i would like to say and ask. The SUV comes with DVD pre wire but i am unable to figure out as to what is pre-wired and where?. The dealer did not has any clue. The multiple sun glass holders on the top leaves very less space for OH DVD player, specially for 2nd row. Had any body installed after market DVD player (all in one). I will appreciate any info on that.
Moved to Sequoia for the need of space. Although i was very happy with my 4runner but came to know after 1.5 yrs that only i was the only one happy in front seat, even the people on 2nd row were not very comfortable. 3rd row was out of question for any reasonable adult. Although i still wish they have 4runner type CRAFTSMANSHIP and QUALITY in Sequoia. I see lot of unfinished, un-rounded, flaky plastic/ dash parts, though very minute but noticeable compared to 4Runner. The interior lacks the solid look like 4Runner, instrument panels need to be re adjusted. Trip computer on top is very uncomfortable to see while driving and similarly other features distract if you try to operate while driving. Very obvious that Sequoia needs update in near future. The leather seats are very comfortable but lack finishing like 4Runner.
I read that Sequoia had 65% parts from japan so i can assume that engine, drive train, axles, suspension and all the critical equipment will still be top quality like other toyota and lexus.
Thought very happy with my purchase, got some what new styled Sequoia, still fear they will come out with new model very soon, shouldn't be before end of 2006.
The comfort and space is perfect, can ride 8 ppl very comfortably. Above all, wife is happier with Sequoia.

does anyone here own a sequioa. i am 17 years old and i am looking into buying a used 2001 or 2002 model and i want to know about what you guys think of them

I purchased a 05 Sequioa. I'm coming from a 97 Expedition. What a change!! We just love this vechicle. We are still getting used to the gagets and changes. We bought a limited. I changed to snow tires and old tundra wheels immediately. Went to 16 in. (stock 17 in). We'll change back in March.
We took 3rd seat out, bought a cargo liner and find it a bit narrower but a bit longer and lower. Lower is nice for loading and easier for dog.
Only wish the ABS worked at slower speeds. We go down a very steep hill to our home and the ABS did not kick in. Expedition didn't do well either. Only the subaru's I'm owned and of all things my '92 Suburban worked at almost o MPH to 5 or so.
Anyway, the drivability and fun factor are at a all time high.

You should read tons of posts on this forum. That can answer your question. I dont understand why you need Seq if you are just 17. Sequoia is full size SUV serving needs of big family. You should go with 4Runner or Rav4.

A 4Runner(V6 model)has more than enough power as long as you are not towing anything. Also, you can save even more money because you get better gas mileage with a V6.
