I have great experience in my SUV Sequoia 2002. The current odometer reading was 218,236 miles bought it Brand New. I also have some expenses incurred while keeping this transportation but it all worth keeping it. Like other my VSC and engine check light also cost my SMOG check to fail
I wish the Toyota will have this failure recalled and corrected
I really enjoyed the Toyota the first two years then the rear power window stopped working. Then the power antenna stopped working. The third row is only for kids. I also had Trac lights come on the dealer was of no help. My driver door handle broke off on the inside.
We bought our 2002 Sequoia limited and runs great. However, in 2010 we had major issues with the vsc and trac lights and the swervy car light coming on. It came on as I was driving it and it swerved and then stalled- it seemed to be forcing the engine when I tried to at least get it off the road. After several trips and weeks without my car- the toyota dealer said it didn't find anything wrong and the computer system seemed fine. I drove it home and then it happened again. After 2 months, and 4 tries from an independant car shop, they found the main computer system needed to be replaced. I paid well over 1k after paying toyota $200 to do nothing and another $250 to replace something that may have caused the issue- but continued happening- I was out of pocket about $1500. I complained and looked for 2002 recall- and after calling toyota- they said my car was not under the recall. I've been waiting to see if they recall and reported to NHTS, but nothing yet. It's the exact same problem described in 2004-05 year models but for some reason they don't go back to earlier models. A real headache when it comes to dealing with Toyota.
the vsc and trac lights just come on suddenly at slow to moderate speeds (5-60 mph) and the car swerves violently to the left side and then it tracks straight again. this does not happen again provided the vsc and trac lights are on. But when you turn the engine off, the computer resets itself so when you re-start it happens again. this is so scary and there is no cheap fix to this so i disconnected the vsc wire connecting to the brake reservoir and viola no more scary swerving. I wish toyota would issue a recall and fix this very scary defect.
I bougt a 2002 toyota brand new but I have been having a problem with the smell of gas that comes inside when i accelerate to pass car or to go up a hill sometimes even just to reach the speed limit three times i took it to the deale and they could not find the probem
The 2002 sequoia limited we have is 100% fine! Has 178000000 miles & still runs like day one!Change oil every 2000 miles.People still stare at our big white suv.very dependable.$44 thousand well spent!
Bought this car new in 2002 only problem was rear hatch latch failure x2. This car is now at 138,000 miles and having a problem with TRAC OFF and VSC TRAC light on also.
