Not the Toyota I was expecting
This is my first Toyota. I was coming from a 2001 Chevrolet Suburban, which I still have. Let's just say the Sequoia is not built like the Chevrolet. As much bashing as American cars get, there is no comparison in the durability and the heavy duty design used in the Suburban compared to the Sequoia. Suburban is hands down a more durable product. With that said, the Toyota has a more powerful and refined drive train, but it is also 7 years newer, so that should be expected. The issues I have had with the Sequoia are as follows in 100K miles
Power passenger mirror failed
3 water pumps (including original)
A/C condenser failed, needed replacement (dealer wanted $1800, got it done for $600). No stone damage to the condensor, failed at a joint, but Toyota would not cover under mfg defect.
roof support beams separated from roof panel (glue came apart). Another manufacturing defect not covered by Toyota and another $1K.
Rear shocks defective, replaced under warranty.
Paint in general is not of the same quality as the Suburban. Suburban is still shiny and looks good and has not been waxed in 7 years. Toyota is faded even though it is waxed annually. I had to use Meguiers cleaner/compunction in order to restore some sort of shine to the white paint.
Not the Toyota experience I was looking for. It will likely be my first and only Toyota. My Acura TL, on the other hand, has been almost flawless for 173K miles.
