- Quite ride great milage for a full size SUV, great power for towing and offroading
- To pretty to get dirty...
Purchased As New
I love this truck. I upgraded from a 4Runner and it was well worth the money. The truck tows very well and has plenty of power. With the six speed auto is very agile off road. I use the vehicle on the beach of the Outer Banks, and even with a 7 people seated comfortable and a cooler rack on the front and the back it motors right on through the sand...read morehide

- Excellent overall vehicle. Well thought out and practical for the large family.
- None so far.
We just purchased our Sequoia two weeks ago and love it. We shopped around and took a look at the Tahoe and Escalade to compare it to. The Escalade was about $25k more and a lot worse on the mpg, so that was a no brainer. The problems that I've read about from Tahoe owners made us pass on it, not to mention that the workmanship of the Tahoe had a poor feel and look to it. We had a 2004 Toyota 4 Runner and loved it, but were running out of space and decided to move up to the big boy. We can actually fit 3 more adults into the Sequoia over the 4 Runner comfortably. We opted for the SR5 4 X 4 with most of the options that come on the Limited edition, but without the additional $$$, including leather seats, spoiler, running boards, power drivers and front passenger seats, rear view camera, daytime running lights, fog lights, rear view mirror with homelink, 6 disc stereo, and power moonroof. We actually paid a little less for the Sequoia then we did for the 4 Runner, which we bought new just about 5 years ago. Goes to show you how much the dealers are marking them down to entice you to buy one currently. The leather seats are plush and rear view camera is a must in a vehicle of this size. The second and third row seats have plenty of space for adults, not just children, and I never have to pull my seat up to give anyone leg room behind me anymore. The ride and gear shift with the 5.7 liter engine and six speed transmission is smooth and flawless. It's not a boat on the road and the steering and handling are very good. This engine is very powerful and gets up to 60 mph in less then 7 seconds, which makes it a breeze for passing traffic or merging on the highway. Brakes are super solid and really stop this 6,000lb beast in a hurry if needed. Gas mileage is supurb for a vehicle of this size. We average 19 mpg on the highway and 14 mpg city and it's barely broken in. I know this is nothing to be proud of in terms of overall mpg, but the rest of the large SUV's are much worse. Little conviences are nice like the i-pod aux hook up to the radio, cup holders for an entire team, power roll down window on the rear door (nice for giving the dog a little fresh air), individual climate zone controls including rear area, and enough storage to bury an office inside, etc. The wife, kids, and I are all very happy with this car. I can't wait for our first long road trip!...read morehide

- Lots of room, comfort and luxury...
- Early gas milage will increase a bit, what do you expect with a car this size and engine this tough!
Love the handle, the comfort and the ease. Very well built and shows it in it's performance maybe some poeple just don't know how to handle it. I have six children and the ease of this SUV makes my trips all the better. Lots of room with five of them being boys we need it. We travel a lot and the handle is terrific even through the moutains. Learn you vehicle before you venture and handling it will be awesome. I can't say enough about this SUV, the little extras make it feel like a dream, and style is a definate plus. Love the back window drop that's very nice, breaks the noice on the inside form the kids. I would recommend this SUV to large families and anyone who desires room, price is comprable in it's class, Come on some mini's are climbing up there without nearly the performance....read morehide

- I like the perceived quality Toyota has.
- The fuel economy was not close to the sticker claim. Traded for a Tahoe.
I drove a Chevy Tahoe by chance within a few months of buying the Toyota and decided to take the hit and trade the Sequoia for a Tahoe. Don't just buy, SHOP AROUND. Toyota's aren't what they used to be and I think Chevy has come a long, long way! Sorry Toyota. The Tahoe rides better, the grain of the interior feels better and the seats are more comfortable. That's my opinion. It cost me 7K in loss to learn it....read morehide
