2004 SR5 2WD with 2.5" lift spacers, 17x9 eagle alloys, flowmaster cat back exhaust with resonator deleted. 138k miles. Replaced timing belt, water pump and sparkplugs at 100k. Rear door latch twice since bought with 66k miles in 2011. Have learned to be gentle with it now. Repaired blown front speaker surrounds. Thanks SimplySpeakers! Disabled power antenna after it started grinding. Replaced failed prior owner installed AVIC-N1 stereo with new Pioneer Bluetooth cd combo. New headlamps in 2018. Replaced 2nd row seat with $50 junkyard find after cat had accident on it. Just replaced leaking coolant o-ring, required to remove intake manifold for access. Doesn't burn oil or knock. Runs like a champ and expect to keep for many more years.

Just hit 252k on my '02 SR5. Purchased off the original owner who maintained it religiously, and I am continuing that tradition, while trying to have a bit of fun with it as well. It still runs/drives perfectly, is clean as hell inside and out, and does surprisingly well off-road completely stock. Won't be completely stock for much longer though, if finances hold :)

This is an old thread, but I wanted to hop in and see how folks are doing with their trucks. I have a 2005 sequoia limited with 335,000 miles. I am original owner. Mostly highway miles. Changed timing and serpentine belts 2 years ago. Besides a radiator swap, I’ve done routine maintenance on it. I think I did a strut or two also. She is running very well. A bit loud on startup compared to my husbands virtually silent Chevy Volt. The only issue I have is the very obvious loud automatic vehicle height adjustment on startup.

Last week, I bought an '06 with 88,000 miles. I had hoped to get one with 50K or less, but I've been tracking availability for several weeks with no luck, the price was right on this one, and -- as someone above mentioned -- mileage on Toyotas isn't all that bad (at least, not in my experience; inlaws went over 300,000K before their daughter/my wife wrecked the car). The used car dealer offered an extended 150,000 warranty for a reasonable price, so I got that.

The first thing I did was take it to the Toyata dealer (different from the used car dealer where I bought the vehicle) to look it over for any obvious issues and get me on a maintenance schedule. Dealer gave it an A+ on mechanics and recommended that I do the 90,000 maintenance, which I did. That was expensive, but I'm glad to be starting fresh.

So far, so good, although the car did "jolt" or "kick" while idling yesterday. It just happened once and wasn't severe, but it was noticeable and seemed to be transmission-related. I'm going to keep an eye on that.

I'm also going to try to figure out how to add an AUX line. Unless I'm missing something, the after-market products that provide an AUX line all appear to be about as expensive or more expensive than a new, lower-end stereo with an AUX line built in, so I may just get a new stereo. Anyway, I saw a few threads on here about that topic, so I'll search before I ask for help.

2008 Sequoia SR5. Mint condition. 147k. Today it shit the bed! Driving on the highway and all of a sudden the 4LO light is blinking, Check Engine Light solid on. Traction Control light on. And another light that was blinking. Wouldn’t shift last 4th gear. Felt like it was in 4 wheel drive. Dealer says solenoid in tranny is what the code said but they can’t figure it out still. I’m so sad. Love this rig and scared about the massive bill to fix it.

Original owner 2004 Sequoia with 352,000. Two liftback latch handles and just replaced the liftback window Regulator and guides due to support arms rusting completely through. Replaced timing belt a couple years ago. We also had the possessed Liftback window many years ago. Nothing else, other than regular maintenance. Also have original owner 2006 Tundra DC with 172,000.

So quick update $1700 later it’s the #4 transmition solenoid. But they needed to bore out the bolts and replace. Also 16qts of fluid. I get it back tomorrow. Ready to put another 140k on this rig!

consider yourself lucky. Somehow I shorted out my electrical system and initially it was going to be $1400 but as they kept changing parts out, they found out other parts were shorted. Ended being $3800. Electrical issues are a nightmare.
