I have a toyota sequoia 2006 and am experiancing a similar situation that i have been reading about auto trans.
My vehicle would experience an after-stop sound that seems like a thud as if somebody rear ended you.
It seems that what ever is happening is inside the transmission.
My understanding is that auto Transmissions have friction plates that drop into place automatically as you accelerate while driving.
As you come to a stop all these plates do not make a smooth turn by turn---last in --- first out.....sequence but wait for some god foresaken reason to return to their usual stop position all together after hesitating initially.
I think Toyota needs to analyze this thoroughly and see if the use of a certain transmission oil is contributing to this phenomenon.
I have a strong urge to use ordinary cooking oil to replenish the transmission oil as i did with my washing machine 2 years ago and it seems to perfporm better now and is also very quiet

Please reference post #44. Bottom line, your fluid level is too low. It worked for me. Good luck!!

#55 of 62 2007 Sequoia Transmission problem fixed
Mar 24, 2012 (8:38 am)
Experienced "rear ended" slam symptom at stop light twice and even had a time where when I was accelerating at a green light the engine kicked into gear so fast that the tires spun. (rear wheel drive not 4x4)
The Transmission place I took it to found a Toyota "Advisory" of some type that the Transmission Mount for the 2007 Sequoia was redesigned for that year. I'm not sure if it "recommended" that it be replaced with the old mount style but that was the gist of it.
Remembered seeing a post here that there may be an issue with the connection between the drive shaft to the rear wheels and the transmission and this seemed to fall into that line.
Replaced the part months ago and haven't had any more problems. The part was listed as "Trans Mount " on the invoice and cost $107 for the part.
I don't know what database the transmission place searched or have any information where the Advisory came from.

#57 of 62 Transmission whine in 1st or 2nd gear going uphill
May 22, 2012 (12:10 pm)
While in 1st or 2nd gear, I hear a whining noise during acceleration only that is much more noticeable while driving uphill. It seems to be less prevalent when the engine is warmed up, but is nonetheless still present. My transmission fluid is clear and full with no leaks evident. Any suggestions? Thank you!

I have the same issue when the car go into overdrive, so did you get the issue diagnosed? If you deactivate the overdrive button off the noise goes away, so it is definitely something with overdrive.
