2005 Toyota Sequoia
After many new car questions we think this thing is it.
Anybody here own one? Know anything to check for or known problems, etc.?
We're getting a new car and our friends are downsizing so we're getting a deal on this. We're not concerned with gas mileage as we're moving and we'll drive a lot less and it gets the same mileage as my 2000 2 door Chevy Blazer (anyone want to buy it for $2k).

Not a problem, but as the 4.7 V8 gets up there in mileage - sometimes as early as 125k miles - the stainless exhaust manifold will begin the click. It doesn't affect a thing, but something to be aware.

Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

We got it checked out today and I think we're going to buy it. It's super nice and us lanky people enjoy the space.

I drive an '05 Sequoia SR5 daily. Rock solid. Bought it off lease with 58K on it, I've got 130K on it now. Oil changes and scheduled maintenance has been it with one exception. Tailgate latch broke once when I grabbed it at about 30 below, plastic internal parts. If you keep your foot out of it, the mileage isn't too bad either.
