my friend, i can feel for you.
but, my family currently owned 7 toyota and lexus and i owned about 4 different toyota including a 2004 sequoia without any problem. this truck had high trade-in price for a good reason man, but not a reason that you stated above. you are paying overprice my friend, not the truck is over price. here is a trick, do not buy a truck when i first come out. be patient, wait until the dealer knock out 3 to 5 thousand lower than msrp then go for it. SUV is very highly competitive market, how do toyota sell their car and truck if their product were overprice. If your Suburban so good, why GM lost so much money, market share and shut down their production left and right. Dude, good luck with your 2007 Suburbans and hope that GM still #1 on the year to come.

I have a 2003 Sequoia and it has been the best vehicle we've ever owned. Never had a problem until recently with the gas gauge. It sounds as if you have the same problem. It reads empty and the gas light is on, but the "distance to empty" reads that there is gas in the tank. Did you ever have it fixed? If so, what was wrong with it? Any info you can provide will be appreciated.
#62 of 81 Bought '06 SR5... Have questions!!!
Jul 24, 2006 (3:14 pm)
We purchased a new SR5. We have had 5 Acura's, a Blazer and a Durango lately. Here is my concern. We are getting 12 mpg overall, half town and half highway driving. Our Durango go 16 mpg overall. The best I did on freeway travel was 18 mpg. I only have 650 miles on the Seqouia. We have experienced no problems with the SR5. It sits most of the time. We will use it to drive to the desert in the winter. We have daily drivers. My only concern is the gas mileage. Will the mileage improve once I get the SUV broken in?

I guess I will just need to put a few more miles on the SR5. It is now getting 12. This is an improvement over the 10.4 that we started with.

A national news magazine is looking to interview consumers who have recently (within the past three months) purchased a large SUV and would like to talk about your decision to purchase that car. Please send an e-mail to ctalatiedmunds.com no later than Wednesday, November 8, 2006 by 2:00 PM PST/5:00 EST containing your daytime contact information.

Anyone having problems with their interior door handles, breaking off. I had 3 of the 4 completely break off. Bought it brand new in 02 with extended warranty, it will not cover the repair.

First, throw away the air filter and replace it with one from K&N.
next, change to synthetic oil.

jerrydock, great milage. I have a '01 with 133,000 miles, run mobil 1 synthetic since about 30K miles. The best milage i ever got was about 18 on a cross country trip a few years ago. I drive it around town (90% city, 10% highway) and get about 12-14 mpg.I tried the K&N filter but it had no significant impact on gas milage. I guess every car is different. The greatest impact on milage was when I pumped the tires up to close to the max. It made a difference but the ride was very rough. Dropped down to a lower lever and works OK but I guess i'll have to live with the milage.
I will be trading it in for the new '08s when they come out. I want to tow a bigger trailer so I am looking for the bigger engine and the 10,000 towing capacity.

After many years of disdain for Toyota we have taken the plunge. We bought a 2007 limited 4WD with the luxury package. Has NAV, 2nd row captains seats and DVD entertainment. This beauty listed at $51,684. The dealer knocked 10 big ones off the price. High gas prices have people spooked. The dealer said they are discounting big time to get rid of their big SUVs and Trucks. I do like the ride and NAV so far. We shall see. Now if I can afford the gas for a vacation
