The Sequoia suits all my needs in a vehicle. It is large enough to hold 8 passengers and still have storage space behind a third seat. The ride is comfortable; room to move and yet have all controls within reach. I hestited purchasing a Sequoia as I was happy with my previous SUV. However, once I drove the Sequoia, I found it a superior ride. I have a smooth ride while accelerating (no hesitation for the transmission) and have smooth braking (no jerking). It is by far a superior vehicle. This is why I just purchased my second Toyota Sequoia!
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.
we love our new car toyota sequoia everything above is a 5 star.
