Great overall value. Don't have the XM yet but can put it in as well as update the nav system. One drawback is that those actions are pricey, but the quality is assured.
Solid family hauler

This was a welcome trade up from a mininvan for our family of 6. Lots of power, drives like a dream.
Best SUV I have owned
2008 Toyota Sequoiaroad trip adict - Cordell, OK08/18/2012
I have owned several SUVs, different brands, different sizes, trips, etc... the Sequoia was my choice over a Nissan Armada, Ford Expedition, Taohes, and others. Toyota's are commonly known as expensive, but the price was lower than an average Tahoe. Finding a used Limited or Platinum a couple of years old will give you better options than a brand new GMC or Ford. you will have more room, seating layout bigger seats. In terms of performance, this SUV will outperform just like a pick up, you can pull pretty much anything you will pull with a Tundra (or F150 or Silverado). As soon as I purchased mine I took my family and some friends (total of 7 people) for a road trip, we clocked over 3,500 milies through Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, and Kansas. We climbed, we descended, drove on curvy roads, it was a blast to drive. we decided to pull a small U-Haul trailer for with cooler ans suitcases, did not even feel it back there. Our Limited Sequoia, came with a DVD, and the scond row bucket seats. The more people you load in this car, the more you like it. A lot of its standard features are optional in other models. this is the best value, the closes competitor is the Armada, which rides a little bit smoother, but the room in the third row is better on the Sequoia.
BUY IT, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
Toyota builds nearly every type of car for every kind of driver, and used models are highly sought after, thanks to their reputation. Whether you’re looking for a used sedan, SUV, pickup truck, minivan, sports car, or fuel-efficient hybrid, there’s almost certainly a Toyota out there for you.
They’re big. They’re bold. They’re kinda in your face. Tall pickup trucks and SUVs have the kind of ride height that gets you over, through, and around the kind of rough terrain which stops other vehicles in their tracks. If you live in a place with lots of snow, mud, or uneven ground, ride height (defined as the distance between the bottom of your truck’s tires and the lowest point on the underside) is probably more important to you than road-hugging and handling characteristics and strong fuel efficiency.
Some of the best compact SUVs today are efficient, with good power and handy features like a turbocharged engine, all-wheel drive, and even third-row seats. Check out this top 10 list, based on CarMax sales data from January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017.
