#20 of 62 2002 Toyota Sequoia Transmission Failure
May 05, 2008 (1:59 pm)
I have just had the transmission on my 2002 Sequoia fail. I called the 800# for customer service only to be told to try to make a deal with the dealership as my car was out of warranty.
I am very disappointed with the quality of Toyota. I have experienced two separate occasions where the coil packs had to be replaced. Now the transmission on a 2002. I am tired of hearing that this is not the norm for Toyota.
Every forum I go on I find at least 8-10 owners with this same problem. So one has to wonder why Toyota has not had a recall. My dealer is telling me it's going to cost about $5k to replace.
I just filed a complaint with the National Highway Traffic and Safety. I would suggest more of us do the same. Since Toyota is refusing to acknowledge they have a problem.
Many people are citing that debris from other mechanical parts that have failed such as the a/c housings got into the transmission and caused it to fail.

My 2003 SR5 just started having the jumpy shifting. It waits a very long time before shifting, and then jumps to the next gear. I have 95,500 on it. It just started wtihin the last 4K miles or so.

Today while driving my Sequoia would be slow on accelerating from a stop. It was like it was "fighting" to get into gear. Slowly it would reach about 35 mph and then jerk into gear. Any ideas?

#28 of 62 Transmission problems?

I have a brand new 2010 sequoia limited less than 200 miles, I noticed something weird though not sure if they are problems.
1. When I brake in low speed in parking lot, from time to time, I felt the car "jump" forward a little bit. It seems like I wrongfully step on the gas instead of the brake, of course, I am sure I stepped ed the brake. The problem, however, is not repeatable.
2. If I push down the gas pedal very gentle, the transmission gear shifts, the rpm stays around 2000 and the speed goes up. If I push down the gas pedal in medium hard steadily, the gear shifts to the second or third, and will not shift to upper gears. What I see are: the rpm goes up higher and higher to 3500-4000 and the speed goes up to 50+ miles/hour. (I didn't try longer and/or harder.)
However, if I release the gas pedal and push the gas pedal again, the gear shifts, and rpm goes down to 2000.
Are these problems? Many thanks,
