I also have been waiting for a couple of years and I now believe that the next generation Sequoia is just around the corner. The 2007 looks like the same tired model with nothing new.
With the new Tundra coming out in a few months and the fact that Toyota is now offering a rebate to move the Sequoia the replacement should not be long. I just hope that it comes out in the spring as a 2008.
I, for one, am going to wait for the 2nd generation Sequoia!

I have been having a lot of problems with my Sequoia since around 3,000 miles. My 2005 SUV was in the repair shop many time. They told me the the vibration I was feeling was normal and all of my other problems were also normal. I finially took it to a different Toyota service center and I also called Toyota Corp and reported what has been goiong on. While at a differnt service center about an hour away. I went over all of my problems and they said what I was describing is NOT normal. They have replaced several things so far.
The vibrations I was feeling every so often while driving:
They test drove it and said no this should not be happening. 1st they flushed the transmission, which did not solve the problem and now they found that the torque converter is bad. they are replacing it as I type. They told me this may not fix the problem but they pritty sure this is the probelm...
I have 4 wheel drive problems sometimes it will take 2 minutes for it to kick in, odor smell, hesataion, back hatch won't open sometimes, feels like I have been rearended while I am at a stop light, and transmission. This service center said most of the problems are fixed and parts have been replaced. They can not figure out the 4 wheel drive problem Yet

Hi, I am new to this so bare with me. I just wanted to let you know that I have a 2006 Sequoia which I leased in November, 2005 and am trying to sell or have someone take over the lease. My husband and I have our own construction business and we thought leasing was a good idea. Not only has it been a bad idea for us due to the mileage, but a luxury vehicle just isn't as good as a different type of SUV would be with the type of business we are in. I previously had a Ford Excursion which I sold because I had never had the luxuries which my Sequoia has and thought that was a big deal at the time. I am now realizing that the Excursion was better for me in the business we are in. I am looking for someone interested in either buying the Sequoia outright or taking over the lease from me. Do you know of anyone who might be interested? The Sequoia is a 4x2 SR5, fully loaded. It has leather interior, moonroof, 6 disc changer, rear air, power seats, windows and locks, spoiler, keyless entry, 3rd row seats and more. It currently has a little over 11,000 miles on it. It is brand new. I love this vehicle but we just can't afford to keep both, the Sequoia and another SUV.
#8849 of 8984 Anyone converted to Sirius?
Aug 17, 2006 (1:48 pm)
I have a 2001 Sequoia with the standard JBL stereo which works very well, but I want to get Sirius Satellite Radio for my Sequoia now. Has anyone converted their older system to Sirius? Any suggestions? Do I need to get rid of the existing CD/Cassette/FM deck? Is there a similar product that I can place in the dashboard with Sirius/CD/Cassette?

Thank you for the information. I actually already have my Sequoia on Swapalease.com. Just thought I would put the word out there to see if anyone is interested. Thanks again.
#8851 of 8984 any suggestion on replacing Sequoia windshield glass?
Aug 26, 2006 (8:14 pm)
My 2004 Sequoia with 50K has a lot of marks/scratches on the glass, recently
it further hit by something created a hole (not through).
Thinking about replacing a new one if it worth it.
Reasons of thinking to replace:
1. Too many scratches and a hole on, it distracts viewing.
2. Wondering if the glass has any kind of improvement which will a better
shielding to sunlight? I feel hot and sometimes a little burning on skin
driving in summer. Comparing to my wife's Accord, her car never gave me
such burning feel no matter how hot it is. Is it common on a Sequoia?
Thank you for any info. What will it cost me?

I haven't been on the forum in a long time, but wanted to say goodbye. Our 2001 Sequoia went back to the bank on Thursday. She was a great truck (never had a problem) but we simply didn't need her capacity anymore and went with a Subaru Tribeca.
Good luck to everybody and enjoy your Sequoias.
