#8590 of 8984 The Big Toyota Recall
May 17, 2005 (8:48 pm)
Well I guess you have all heard by now that toyota is recalling approximately 750,000 vehicles including the Sequoia for a manufacturing defect. I read online that the recall for the Sequoia includes the 2002 to 2004 model years, but not the 2005. I (of course) just got a 2005 SR5 one week ago today. If the vehicle was built in December of 2004, do you think it will be affected by the recall? Any info would be greatly appreciated... thanks, David. ps.. If you haven't heard about the recall yet, I read about it on msnbc.com">link title

Recalls are so common any more, they are hardly newsworthy. From reports I've read, there's only been one accident (in Japan) related to the ball joints. It sounds like it'll be July before you get any official notice in the mail.
It does make you wonder if the recent incentives were offered in anticipation of the recall announcement.
#8593 of 8984 Heavy Steering...
May 19, 2005 (12:34 pm)
I have an 02 Sequoia SR5 4WD with 22,000 mi.
Lately I have noticed how difficult it is to turn the wheel while steering, almost laboring.
Anyone notice similar behavior?

We should be thankful Toyota stepped up to the plate. I had a 2000 Durango and if anyone remembers they had a huge problem with ball joints in 2003. They actually had numerous instances with wheels coming off. Diamler Chrysler was reluctant to acknowledge the problem even existed and many people had it done without any compensation. Toyota, true to their reputation, will take care of it and all indications are that they'll cover expenses..

Not sure they could afford not to step up to the plate. Just hope it doesn't cause more problems than it fixes. Hate having a major service done - always find new rattles and kinks that previously did not exist.

I have a 2001 4WD SR5. When removing my foot from the brake pedal I get a distinct "clanking" sound. Is this normal? I've had the noise since I bought it in 2001.

I could be wrong and if so , please tell me. I heard on here that the drive shaft should be lubed with tons of grease to stop the clanking noise.

I believe that is what the recall involves, difficulty in steering. You will probably get a recall notice in July

We just had the same thing happen to our 2001. Let's see what our dealer has to say.
