#8962 of 8984 Sequoia - Love it? Leave it?
Feb 18, 2011 (12:13 pm)
I'm currently looking to replace my 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and am considering either a fully loaded Honda Pilot/equivalent or a less lush Toyota Sequoia. I spoke with a sales person at my local Toyota dealer who has a 2011 SR5 with the premium upgrade (leather seats and backup camera is mostly all, as far as I can tell) for 45k. This is sticker, I'm sure they'll loosen up on the price once we meet in person.
So, for you Sequoia owners, do you love it? Hate it? Would you buy another again? Any advice for someone who has never owned a Toyota?
I'm new to the forums, sorry if I'm posting in the wrong spot!

#8964 of 8984 Whistling sound while driving
May 24, 2011 (6:30 am)
As I'm driving there's a whistling sound that's possibly coming from the AC (not sure). Sometimes when I accelerate it seems to get a little louder but then goes away when I take my foot off the pedal. Either way the sound is very annoying. I took it to the dealer after having it for a few days and apparently they said it was normal. I can't accept that the sound is normal especially when you have a headache. I'm going to take back soon before we leave for vacation because it's worse sitting in the front passenger seat. Perhaps I'm a little sensitive.
If you have or are dealing with the same problem and got the problem fixed, please let me know what to do to get this fixed. Thank you.

Are you using the stock air filter, or have you changed your air filter recently? I have the 2008 Sequoia, and when I upgraded to a K&N performance air filter, I started to hear a high pitched whistling sound. After trying a second filter, and poking around on these message boards, I concluded that the noise was "normal," and the price you pay for an aftermarket filter upgrade. I think it makes it sound like a turbo / big rig!
#8966 of 8984 Sequoia Engine & Miles
Oct 18, 2011 (7:01 am)
Iím trying to buy an older 2001- 2003 Sequoia. I have seen these vehicles with miles between 80-120,000 miles. I doubt whether I will buy one with more than 120,000 miles.
The million dollar question is what kind of miles can I expect to put on an I-Force V8?
I know maintenance will have a lot to do with this but overall would anyone know what I can roughly expect?
I appreciate you reading this post.
#8967 of 8984 Tire Pressure Sensors
Nov 30, 2011 (9:57 am)
I'm approaching the time when I will need to replace the original tires on my 2008 Sequoia.
My question is, can I use the original tire pressure sensors when I have the new tires installed or will I have to replace them also?

When I replaced the tires on my 2008 Sequoia at 50k, I did not have to do anything with the sensors. They are still working just fine.

Thanks, I'm thinking of replacing the original Bridgstone Duelers at around 50K also and am about 5K away from that.
Looking seriously at going with Michelin LTX M/S2 as I like Michelins and these have a 70K rateing.
Any thoughts on best replacement tires?

I used the OEM tires, because the price at the dealer was fair, and I didn't want to deal with any issues regarding the speedometer or odometer. Also, I couldn't get the right sized Michelins from Costco!
