I am truly disappointed in my recently purchased 2005 Sequoia and its issues (problems with only 2000 miles on it). Toyota is aware of problems but still have no fix. So I am paying for vehicle that continues to have issues that Toyota cannot fix and don't have any idea when they will have a fix. I'm in the process of going through arbitration with them right now but feel I will probably loss my shirt for something out of control and something I think Toyota should have disclosed before I purchased the vehicle. I also own 1998 Toyota and other general maintenance have had no problems. Toyota has always had a reputation of quality vehicle. What happened?
My advice to potential buyers would be "BUYER BE WARE". You might want to look at another make of vehicle until Toyota gets back to producing quality vehicles.

I have had the same noise with my 2002 SR5 Sequoia. This seems to be the way in which the tank lets out exsessive pressure from moving about with fuel in the tank. This has been my observation anyway. If you take the gas cap off while it is "groaning" and then place it back on it stops for a little while.
Juts logical reasoning, not sure if it is right or wrong.

I had the same problem with my 2004 Sequoia. The fix was simply a new (better fitting?) replacment gas cap.

What is a secret warranty, and how can I find out if any exist for my car?
A secret warranty arises from some technical service bulletins (TSBs). TSBs are notices that the dealer service departments receive from manufacturers alerting them to known problems with their vehicles and what the suggested repairs are. In some cases the dealer is instructed to replace certain parts or make certain repairs free of charge, even though the vehicle is out of warranty. By law, TSB repairs covering emissions equipment are free of charge to the customer for up to 100,000 miles. Please click here to see Maintenance Schedules, Recalls, and Technical Service Bulletins for your vehicle.

I have same experienced with my 2003 Sequoia when I purchased it. After I use "Armor All" to clean all interior surfaces, this help to prevent scratch. I recommend you to try this. This Armor All is available in any Auto Part stores

I have had problems with A/C, radio and most recently sulfur dioxide leaking into the cab. I'm now wondering if other exhaust is leaking into the cab. When I drive the vehicle I get terrible headaches. I am car pooling right now so the weeks I don't drive no headaches. This vehicle doesn't even have 3000 miles on yet. I wonder what next.
