Looking to buy a 07 Sequoia, couple questions
Hey Guys, new to this forum but no stranger to Toyota's or car forums.
I'm looking to buy an 2007 Sequoia SR5 4WD that is for sale at a small dealer here in Wisconsin. On face value, the truck looks to be in very good condition with a pretty good maintenance history.
I'm well aware of the frame recall for these trucks. I also own a 97 4runner that has its fair share of rust issues.
My question about this particular one is the frame work that was done at the yota dealer last year (Feb/18). This is what comes up on the toyota owners site:
"H0F-CLEAN FRAME APPLY CRC, INSTALL PLUGS SUBLET. S EQUOI ~|~H0F ~|~ ~|~SCALED FRAME"
S00-CORROS RES KIT 00289S00KTDS
PLUG, HOLE KIT 0400718334
Also, it looks like the previous owner (its a one owner truck) had the frame inspected in 2017 also:
ZH9-FRAME INSPECTION ~|~RECALL H0F ~|~VEH HAS AN OPEN H0F ~|~PERFORMED FRAME INSPECTION OP CODE GHG23A NO HOLES FOUND IN FRAME AT THIS TIME DONE
Obviously I need to go look at it in person to check the condition of the frame. What has me kind of concerned is when the inspected last year, they used a CRC kit but they also used a "plug, hole kit PN 0400718334".
When I do a search for that PN, I can find it for sale on a bunch of sites but none of them explain what it is or what it's for. Is this a plug kit for a hole in the frame or some other kind of plug that is used for applying the CRC?
I asked the dealer how the frame is and he said "solid as a rock". Obviously, I take that with a grain of salt and will need to do a thorough inspection myself.
