We just purchased this car a few days ago and we love it. We actually bought the model with the quad bucket second row seats as we have a 7 year old, a 2 year old and are expecting our 3rd child. We wanted easy access to the 3rd row seats without having to remove a car seat in order to get back there. I love that this car isn't too big nor too small. I drive it with no problem (esp with my blind spot mirrors! I cannot drive without them :) We looked at the GMC Suburban and it was just way too big. We looked at the GMC Acadia and it was too small. We also looked at the GMC Yukon and Chevy Tahoe (as all these vehicles had the 2nd row quad seat option) but there was barely any space in the 3rd row even for a short person like myself to sit in. The Sequioa was really the perfect fit. I love that you can lower the 3rd row seats with the push of a button and visability is great. Gas mileage...well as everyone has stated, it's terrible but what can you expect from a 5.7L V8? All in all, a great car for a large family and also for towing our 26 ft. boat :) It sure beats a minivan!
Bang for your Buck
2005 Toyota SequoiaMichael - East Hartford, CT11/25/2008
As I began searching for a vehicle that would provide me with the space and reliability I was looking for I initially felt inclined to look at the Lexus GX. I was driven, no pun intended, by the reputation of Lexus and the Consumer Reports ratings on this model. However, by chance, I came across the Sequoia while searching for a Lexus online. It suggested that if I like this version of the Lexus SUV then I would probably also like the Sequoia. The suggestion was perfect because what I found in my research is that this model is as highly rated as the Lexus yet I would pay far less. Essentially, I get many of the ammenities offered with the Lexus, including a very reputatable name in that of Toyota, but for a much more affordable price. I am very pleased with my purchase and I feel a significant level of comfort knowing my wife and kids are in a reliable, highly functional, and prestigious looking vehicle.
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.
