2007 Toyota Sequoia Owner Comments

problem #1

Jun 192008


  • 400 miles


To whom it may be of some interest, June 19, 2008 I had a horrific experience with my Sequoia. I own a 2007 Sequoia and it only has 4200 miles on it. This past Sunday I was starting from traffic when I gently stepped on the brake pedal to slow down in traffic when all of a sudden the seq. Jumped from 0 to 60 or 70 mph. It took me off guard, I then pressed on the brake again trying to stop the vehicle or at least slow it down a bit but every time I took my foot off the brake the truck just wanted to take off totally out of control. It kept doing this for about a good minute. I thought for sure I was going to hit someone or something and injure my kids who were with me at the time. It was a frightening experience. I called for a service appt. At Toyota of manhattan where I purchased the vehicle which was on said date and it happened again on the way to the dealership. I was 5mins from the dealership and they could smell the brakes. I explained the problem and they mechanics insisted it was the rugs of course I dispute it they said the rug probably got caught on the pedal. When I showed them how far the two were from eachother they then said it would get a diagnostic check. 4 hours later I was told it was the "brake booster". my problem was not the accelerator, but the brake itself. Here I thought every time I stepped on the brake I thought the anti-locks were kicking in when in fact the brakes was trembling, a total malfunction...I waited several days for the part to ship from Japan.. I would like warn other Sequoia owners of the possibilities of this happening to them. Thank you, above is the same letter I sent to Toyota usa on June 2008.
