2006 Toyota SequoiaDeej - Colorado Springs, CO04/12/2011
I wanted a great vehicle for hauling dogs (we have 4 of them) and gear (musician). I can fit large speaker cabs in this standing up... and can fit nearly 3x's more gear than my last SUV. We took out the 3rd row seats (really easy to do) and put up a dog barrier, and have plenty of room for 4 large dogs, and 5 passengers.
The second row seats are comfortable enough for longer trips, however the 3rd row seats aren't meant for adults to be in for a length of time. 2nd row is very comfortable and roomy. Has it's own air system for heat or AC.
Some of the features I do miss from my last SUV include auto wipers, dual zone front seat heating, and bluetooth/navigation package. The last is fixable. Needs a rear view camera, but that's also something that can be fixed.
Driving is very comfortable. The bucket seats hold you in to take corners faster than you really should. Bumps are less noticable, and bad road is covered rather smoothly. It has plenty of get up and go, despite the size and weight of the vehicle. Handles well in the snow I've seen since purchasing (not bad snow yet). Gas mileage is terrible, but I bought this for hauling, not for commuting.
All in all, very worth the money, and it's Toyota quality - I'll have this for years to come.
Amazingly Safe and Fun Vehicle to Drive w/ Plenty of Room

This vehicle is nice looking and it is big. At first, I thought the size was going to be a con but it turned out to be a pro! I was worried about driving such a large vehicle when my husband recommended it but I have become accustomed to it and have no problems driving it. The sensors let you know if you are getting too close to something and the backup camera helps as well. It fits our baseball family perfectly. We can fit 8 people in it plus the gear, if needed. Of course, the storage space is limited with 8 versus 5 but it still works out nicely. How do I feel when I drive this vehicle? SAFE! COMFORTABLE! LIKE A PAMPERED QUEEN! It is fantastic and the best vehicle that I have ever owned.

The vehicle has been great. We have thoroughly enjoyed the vehicle and have had no problems with it. The purchasing process was a smooth one. We had the vehilce transferred from another dealership and the vehicle's appearance was as advertised. The vehicle has been a great value.
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.
