#1790 of 1954 2008 Sequoia Platinum
Jul 09, 2008 (8:02 pm)
Taking delivery of a silver sky this weekend. Anyone have any info on:
cargo mat fitting behind second row seats? I will have the third row seats down most of the time and haul stuff fairly often
can the platinum badge and toyota badge on the rear liftgate be removed with no holes? I like the "unbadged" look They just pulled off my 05 4Runner
recommendations for floor mats? MacNeil?
Thanks in advance.

I have an SR5 and not a Platinum. I assume that the floor space is similar for mats. I spent a lot of time looking for mats, and the best ones I found were actually at Sams club of all places. Sams has these all weather mats that are gray and went well with my gray leather seats. You can cut them to fit the floor and they actually fit good under the two outside seats in the second row as well. The mats fit very well with the front seats too. The mats are made by Kraco and I found them at Sams. They are heavy thick rubber mats that are good for retaining dirt, snowmelt, and water. I also found some good long rectangular runner mats that fit very well with the third row floor and also fit very well across the back stgrage area. These are rubber as well. I found these runners at Walmart. (I swear I am not a Sams/Walmart saleman--this just where I found the mats.) I do not know about pulling the logos off the back.

We purchased the cargo mats, instead of the carpet mats, from Toyota for the Sequoia and they not only look great but are also made for the vehicle. The rear mat comes in two sections for when you have the 3rd row up.
Before you purchase the mats take a look at the Toyota mats.
#1793 of 1954 Issues with GPS
Jul 17, 2008 (7:57 am)
I have a 2008 Limited Sequoia, and from the time I bought it the GPS has not worked correctly. For example, I sit in my home town and do search for Walmart, Lowes etc..and it gives me locations hundreds of miles away. Has anyone else had this issue. Also, in directing me to destinations, the GPS wants to take me off on side roads instead of keeping me on the most direct Interstates. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Are you sure you are set to the right area? My wife's highlander was set to the wrong region and all our locations came up miles away. We set it to our correct area and it fixed the issue.

Yes, I've had the same issue. Its actually rather simple...at least with the examples you've give. In the Toyota GPS database some Walmart locations are spelled as a single word (Walmart) and other locations are spelled with a hyphen (Wal-mart). Some Lowes are spelled with the s some are not. Try it both ways and you're likely to find the one in your neighborhood.

Nice looking Sequoia! Black/Red Rock is my favorite color combo. I work at the Toyota Vehicle Distribution Center in Indiana. I drive Sequoia's everyday, and intall accessories on them also. I am glad you enjoy your vehicle. It makes my job worth while

Are you at the port? or the factory itself? How's the slowdown on production affecting you? I hope you are doing well. Keep up the good work on the Sequoia. You build them and I sell them.
#1798 of 1954 Toyota Accessory----front and rear sonar
Jul 20, 2008 (6:14 pm)
I bought a SR5 Sequoia without factory/port installed sonar in NJ.
I asked the salesperson to add the sonar system as DIO option, but he told me that the sonar system can only be installed in factory or port, not in dealership. I went to another Toyota dealership this weekend.... I was told only back sonar can be installed in his dealership and it costs $500....I am not sure if it is Toyota brand or aftermarket.... what's impact to the warranty if the sonar system is aftermarket..??
Any information is appreciated.

You will usually find the warranty information included with your aftermarket owner's manual. Most cases the installing dealer will warrant the product for whatever period that is offered. Seems a lot of dealers prefer aftermarket as there is more profit in it for them.
