2002 Toyota Sequoia SR5 V8 from North America
I like the car, may not purchase another one
A/C Compressor and clutch went out at 64000 miles.
Ball joints replaced (on recall)
The Sequoia is a great vehicle for carrying many passengers and has a powerful engine.
There is definitely a problem if all these A/C compressors have gone out within a few years of ownership.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I can understand your disappointment with your Sequoia. Toyota quality is no more. My last domestic car went over 200,000 miles without ever even having freon added to the A/C (or any other problems for that matter). Sorry you got taken in by Toyota ad hype. You might want to look at the new mid-size GM SUV's. They are more powerful, smoother, use less gas and are WAY more reliable than the problem-prone Sequoia and Highlanders, as well as costing 10 grand less.

Actually, you might not want to look at GM SUV's, because they're all low quality, throw-away vehicles. They cost 10 grand less for a reason; you get what you pay for. I'm sorry you're a/c went down, but that's a lot better than having GM engine and transmission troubles.
And by the way, the bottom fell out of GM's already miserable quality control as they try to pump out more vehicles to increase revenue. They're paying for all their past mistakes. Keep your Toyota. It'll still be running fine when today's brand new GM's are off to the crusher.

The new GM's may have caught up for 2007 but when the new Highlander comes out it will be another 6 years of agony for GM.
