Since I am just now seeing this post, I wanted to let you know that I have seen similar issues on my 2003 Sequoia. I have had a Wheel Speed sensor and Yaw Rate sensor replaced, both as a solution to my ABS and VSC dash lights coming on. The lights came on a third time but the issue corected itself once the car was hooked up to the diagnostics and the codes reset. If you read the TSB verbiage, the solution for one of the codes (can't recall the exact code)is to replace the expensive microprocessors that control yaw or wheel speed. That's a pretty expensive fix for keeping the dash lights from glowing!! Toyota would not cover the expenses in my cases.
#1675 of 2179 Should I buy extended warranty on 2004 Sequoia
Feb 19, 2007 (8:46 am)
I'm looking for people who have had experience with Sequoia's. I just purchased 2004 Sequoia Limited 4x4 with 60K miles turned in on a lease. I had a 2004 4Runner and was looking to trade up.
The dealer didn't offer me an extended warranty, but after looking at prices ($1400-$2000) for additional 3-4 years of coverage, I'm wondering if it's really worth it to make the purchase now.
I have driven a lot of miles in the past, but have changed my lifestyle and hope to take at least another 4 years to get to 100K miles.
I've had the Sequoia for a week so far and I have noticed that the ride of the vehicle isn't as good as I had hoped. I dropped it off this morning at my local dealership to review the recall on the front lower ball-joint, to see if that is causing some of the problems I'm experiencing. I have also noticed a substancial amount of noise and vibration occurring at speeds of 50-75mph and I don't believe it's because of the tires (new Yokahama's + just had it balanced and alligned...or so the dealer claims).
My question is this: Should I consider the extended warranty or is it something that would be better spent somewhere else?
Thanks in advance to all who answer!

I would see what it covers. I don' t think the driveline itself will fail you but little things like electrical and sensors will start to reak havoc and none of that is covered. Mine is starting to ride rougher and noisier in the last 5K miles. I am trading it in before I really start to pay.

I just called the parts desk at my dealer to ask about a remote. He quoted me $264.00 for the stinking thing!!!!
I nearly blew a gasket.
Back to square one....Maybe BestBuy can help me out with aftermarket remote?
Anybody tried that?

It's starting to sound to me like an extended warranty isn't a bad idea after all.
I guess from your experience it would be a good idea for me to get one considering it covers me for another 4 years or 50K miles. That will get me well over 110K miles.
$1400 for the Gold protection warranty on my 2004 60K Mile Sequoia Limited.

I just recently purchased an 02' Limited with a moon roof and yesterday noticed water dripping from the edge of the drivers side headliner against the front window. I am not sure if it is leaking from the roof and running down or if somehow it is coming around the front window seal. The front window says Toyota on it so I am assuming if it was replaced it was by Toyota. Any ideas where this water could be coming from. Also I would like to pull out the radio and was wondering if anyone could help by telling if the plastic front is held in by pins (if so where are they located) or screws. Thanks alot. Todd

Water might leak from the rubber gasket of the roof rack between the top and the base of the rack.
For the center console, there are 2 screws inside the vent hole. If you push this vent windows face up, you will see 2 screws (one in each hole) after you take this screws out, this center console can pull out easily

The back door will not open. The handle is not stuck but seems to not be connected to anything. How do I get inside to look at it? Thanks
