i love the space in front and back seat , and the cool tv that in the seat rest wonderful !
After several years of touting how great owning a mini-van was compared to an SUV. I was converted when my Pontiac Montana's transmission didn't like towing our boat. The Toyota Sequoia is a great alternative, my kids have almost the same amount of room in the back as my my old mini-van and I can still fit a lawn mower, luggage and small cooler behind the third row seat. I miss the better gas mileage, but my insurance rates stayed the same as my old van (probaly because I bought a 2WD). So far after a few months of used ownership (bought with 50K miles on it) I've been happy with the Sequioa, it's superb quality, comfort and it tows our boat like there's nothing behind it. Hopefully I can get more than144,000 miles out of it before the transmission goes like my Pontiac Montana did.
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!
