2001 Toyota Sequoia Problems

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

A ticking noise may develop from the engine due to a cracked exhaust manifold. Damaged exhaust manifolds will require replacement to correct this issue.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

Toyota issued a recall on the lower ball joint due to the possibility of premature wear from improper finishing in production. The ball joints will be replaced under the recall. There are two separate recalls combined here, one applies to 2002-2004 and the second to 2004-2007 Models.  Please contact you local Toyota dealer to see if your vehicle is included.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

One or more oxygen sensors may fail resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light.

Suspension & Steering -- Johnny Toyota and 2 others

Just had the car aligned and it seemed fine, but we took a cross tate trip and the steering vibrates at about 75 to 80 mph - it never did before. I look it up and it says the ball joints are bad. We only had it 4 wheeling 3 time sin anything heavy (Colorado Cimmaron Pass the last time in 2004) so we are wondering what's up. New tires and new spin balance, all suspension and steering busings normal, I cannot see any play in anything. Help?

2001 Toyota Sequoia Reviews

This is a great post. It's awesome to realize that car enthusiasts give importance to cars especially the Brake Pad Set.

We bought the 2001 Sequoia before anyone else. As soon as it hit the dealership, it was ours. It has been the best vehicle we ahve ever had. We still have it at 140,000 miles. I just replaced the radiator, the only major repair we ahve had other then the brakes. You need to research teh TSB (Toyota Service Bullitens) for the brake issues. They were too small for the size of the vehicle and Toyota installed new, bigger, better rotors and calipers for the fornt. DO NOT take your Toyota Sequoia to anyone other than a dealership for brakes, we did and it turned into a nightmare. No one has the right parts (due to the TSB BR005-02) and they cannot replace them properly. Credit to Les Schwab for doing the right thing and refunding our moneyh because they could not get the brakes right. I would take any car to them, except my Sequoia. Good People (N. Cal). Again, I still have my 2001, and if you wax it and keep up th eservice, it will last forever!

I have a toyota Sequioa with 133K . The transmission went out and it is costing me 3K to get it replaced

. Toyota knew the transmission was notany good in models 2000-2006 but they reused to recalll the product .

My Toyota was purchased at Lustine Toyota in Woodbridge, VA. Im sickend by this as these vechicles are not cheap . I got more mileage out of an Nissn Maxmium that has over 200K miles and still running strong.

I advise some of you to not speak to quick to give high remarks for this vehicle, check the blog on the internet .and you will see tons of people had to have their tranmission go out at 90-100K miles. Good luck

good truck but realu needs to work the AC, takes forever to cool
