I have a 2001 Sequoia 2wd with 39,500 miles of mostly local driving and a couple of trips from Los Angeles to San Francisco and L.A. to Las Vegas. The local mileage is 10 mpg and the best mileage on the highage being 17 mpg. I should count my blessings that so far I haven't had some of the problems that the other owners have had except the lousy gas mileage and the broken liftgate handle. Do I have to contact Toyota about the TSB bulletin on the brakes?

If you are a Toyota owner and interested in sharing your reaction to the recall with reporters, send an email stating the vehicle you own, your telephone number, and the best time you can be reached.

#8954 of 8984 2009 Sequoia light not shutting off
Feb 07, 2010 (1:09 pm)
Has anyone had problems with the interior lights not shutting off after 20 mins (as per the manual).
The dome lights and headlights all shut down after 20min but if the kids leave a reading light on the batt is dead in the am. Plus the courtesy lights (the little ones on the bottom of the doors) do not shut off either .
The dealer seems to think this is ok... I don;t think so... the manual states the to preserve the batt life all the light are supposed to shut down after 20 min.. Batt has been dead about 6 times in the last 3 months.
It has an auto starter installed and I have asked them to check to see if this is interfering...

I have this same problem with my 2002 Sequoia SR5. It started at around 26000 miles and continues today at 59000 miles. From the many posts on many web sites that I've read, it appears the replacement ECMs ($2000-$3500) are no quarantee that the problem will be go away. I believe this is an electrical system failure that Toyota and NHTSA have been ignoring for years due to the high cost of a recall. I have again written to my congressman about this. It may take a "death count" for them to act on this. I will never again spend $42700.00 on a Toyota vehicle.

#8957 of 8984 Why no incentives on Sequoia
Mar 28, 2010 (4:01 am)
Has anyone heard why Toyota is not offering incentives on the Sequoia? I was hoping all this unintended acceleration bad publicity would get me a great deal on the Sequoia. When they finally came out with the 0% financing, they had it on pretty much every vehicle except the Sequoia which seemed strange.
My local dealer only gets in about 1 a month and it seems to sell in about 2 weeks. I've told them I'd be intereted in buying if I could get it at invoice with a nice rebate or 0% financing and they just laugh. Good thing is I don't need it now and I plan on paying cash when I do buy. Still, 0% let's me keep my cash growing and would definitely get me interested in buying. So has anyone else gotten a good answer from a Toyota dealer on why this financing is not offered on Sequoia?

if that dealer can only allocate 1 per month, you don't want to make a purchase there. many car makers assign new vehicles to dealers base on customer satisfaction and selling volume.
#8959 of 8984 Problems with JBL Premium Audio System
Jan 30, 2011 (10:48 am)
My 2008 Toyota Sequoia SR5 has the JBL Premium Sound System / Stereo with 6 disk changer. I already had to have the whole unit replaced once due to sound quality issues that were covered by a service bulletin. Just yesterday the CD/Aux switch stopped working. Although I can still switch from AM to FM1, FM2, or CD, it is not possible to select the Aux input, which means I can no longer use my iPod. I am not looking forward to taking it to the dealer, because since I passed 36,000 miles every small issue with this car seams to cost at least $200 to fix, or even to just get the dealer to look at it. I am really disappointed with "Toyota Quality," right now!
Is anyone else having problems with their sound system?? Is there any way for a consumer to "reset" the system without paying the dealer to plug it in??
