NHTSA Complaints for the 2022 Toyota Sequoia

Problems with the Electrical System

While Edmunds doesn’t have any notable reviews yet, the auto publication itself has some criticism for this Toyota SUV.

Edmunds states, “audio controls and front central cupholders are hard to reach [plus] infotainment system looks and feels dated.”

It turns out that electrical system problems run deep with previous Sequoia models. In fact, previous models faced class-action lawsuits because of the defective hands-free Bluetooth system that causes an echo on the other end. Customers were disgruntled about having this high-tech system that didn’t work correctly. They finally turned to lawyers for help when they got tired of asking, “can you hear me now?”

Problems with the Steering

Handling the Sequoia on the road also seems to be a problem. Customers continue to complain about how the steering feels.

One NHTSA review states, “The contact owns a 2022 Toyota Sequoia. The contact received a recall notification for NHTSA Campaign Number: 21V920000 (Steering). The contact stated that the manufacturer had exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall repair. The manufacturer was notified of the issue. The part was not available for repair. The contact had not experienced a failure. Parts distribution disconnect.”

The recall being discussed says that more than 22,000 vehicles have a defective power steering gear assembly that can create an oil leak. The problem is that the issue isn’t getting fixed. When the power steering assist stops working as it should, an accident can occur. The same problem is repeated with NHTSA Campaign Number 21E103000, but it appears this recall was released to add more vehicles. At this point, customers would be foolish to drive the Sequoia with these defects present. It surely cannot “rule” any road trip because it will be spending too much time in the auto repair shop.
