We bought our sequoia a little over 4 months ago,and love it so much!!! We were looking for a bigger vehicle, since we now have started a family, and wanted one that would last us through several children without becoming too cramped. We had originally wanted a 4-runner, but realized that the roomy 3rd row in the sequoia would help us be able to keep our vehicle much longer as our family continues to grow. There is plenty of cargo room even with the 3rd row in place (which is not true of the 4-runner...if a 3rd row is in a 4-runner, there is basically no cargo space remaining.) Furthermore, I can easily fold down the 3rd row and use it as a stroller platform, while stowing groceries in the regular cargo area. For long trips, it is super easy to fold up the 3rd row and literally have a cavern of storage space. The ride is super-smooth, the seats very comfortable, plenty of leg, shoulder, and head room even for my big and tall husband. Moving from a camry, I worried about being able to handle such a big vehicle, but was able to become accustomed to it very quickly. It really doesn't feel much bigger to me than a 4-runner when I'm driving it. We did install safety mirrors on our side-view mirrors, which tremendously helps the somewhat lacking visibility. The sound system and CD changer are very nice, and we love all the extra amenities provided in this vehicle. Overall, we feel so blessed to have such a lovely vehicle for such a reasonable price.
Great solid SUV performance, cargo space, looks, and everything in between is outstanding. Only thing negative I can say is needs a back up camera and better mpg, but you don't buy V8's for the mpg. Though about getting something smaller with v6 third row seats but figured go big for growing family and safety.
I love this truck because it's very dependable and a have a lot of space for the whole family .who have a family of 5 the kids are not jam in this vechile a lot of leg room on all three rolls
