Rep: 10 Black Magix is on a distinguished road
Default I need a new radio for my 2003 Sequioa

Ok so recently I got a 2003 Toyota Sequoia to replace my S-10 1999 Blazer. Unfortunately the stock double-DIN radio that came with the vehicle is suffering from one of the most common problems with the 2000-2006 Stock radio set on the Tundra's/Sequoia.

The 6 disk cd changer is jammed and refuses to load/unload any disks and can't play cd's anymore.

For all intents and purposes this is my dash

Ok so this leaves me with 2 choices. One, listen to crappy audio out the tape deck or listen to the god awful radio stations down here. However, I just sold my Blazer so I have a bit of cash to play around with to buy a new one.

Currently, my steering wheel has controls for the radio to change the volume, mode etc...and I do not want to lose those however, I still want a double-DIN unit.

What are some good suggestions for a replacement unit for somewhere in the range of 200-350 that I could look at for a replacement radio?

My requirements are simple,
1)Double-DIN (I want to leave this car looking as clean and neat as possible, single-din in a double-din just looks messy to me.)
2) Cd player
3) Aux port/iphone support (either or.)
4) Maintain of steering wheel control functionality.

Price range: $200-$350

Rep: 77 tofunater will become famous soon enough

Most beautiful buy I ever netted was a 7 inch touchscreen Kenwood refurb unit through crutchfield for $300. Sadly it's in my ex's car.
It has a $50 add on available for steering wheel functionality, and for a $130 you can get navigation. The sound quality was pretty good too, I'll have to work up the courage to ask her what the model number is...
My rides:
--2012 Chevy Sonic LT hatch back w/1.4 liter turbo w/100k
--2005 Chrysler Pacifica w/175k - SOLD!
--1987 Chevy R10 Pickup w/80k
--1997 4.3L Chevy Blazer w/193k- SOLD!
--1998 Oldsmobile Aurora w/190k - SOLD!
