Sorry wasn’t sure where to post this but I’ve been searching for the perfect 1st Gen Sequoia within my budget for technically about a year. I came up empty handed last November and ended up buying a Nissan Armada because it was my second choice and I was tired of riding my Motorcycle too work, lol. Anyways that was a mistake. From the get go I ended up having to replace the starter which on Armadas are a pain in the ass (I thank Nissan’s engineering team for that cluster F*ck of a design) and both manifolds because the cats were clogged and again there built as one piece. Anyway 3 weeks ago A gentleman decided to pull out into on coming traffic and I totaled out the Mada. After a few days of recovery I decided to start searching for a Sequoia again. After two weeks I still couldn’t find one in decent shape with cloth interior and relatively low miles but I did find an 02’ 4 Runner with 110k that was in perfect shape. Told the wife so I contacted the owner and we setup a meeting the next morning at 10am in Tampa. That morning I woke up early got on CarGurus and BOOM! a Sequoia had just been posted within minutes. So of course I called the 4 runner guy and apologized then we headed to see this Sequoia. This one hit pretty much all the marks, clean, 1 owner, cloth interior and well maintained even had the original floor mats and owners manual and the body was in decent shape for being 15 years old and the price was almost right. I’m very happy with my purchase, they’re are a few cosmetic things that need to be addressed but other than that she purred like a kitten on the hour and a half drive home. For some reason all the sequoias I had looked at prior to this were beat to hell, most ran good but just looked abused. Sorry for the long story but I’m definitely happy the way things turned out.
