Have owned one of these for 6 1/2 years and this has been a dream SUV and a pleasure to travel in. Super reliable with nothing but routine maintenance. 3rd row seat is easy to get to and will actually seat 3 adults just a little tight. Vehicle is very tight and quiet even after 6 years and over 100,000 miles. Highway mileage has been 17+ which is pretty decent given the carrying capacity of the SUV. Seats are very comfortable and rear A/C distributes plenty of air to rear seat occupants. Great family vehicle. 4WD goes through the worst snow.

I can only describe my Sequoia as my very best friend. I bought it about four years ago used. I have never had a suv that has givin me the reliable no headaches at all like this one. It seats eight and the ac is top notch the ride is wonderful and all I do is oil changes. Just had the brakes done normal wear at tear stuff. I never worry about a thing it always starts runs excellent and never lets me down. My 2002 z-71 tahoe by chevrolet let me down alot. I will never buy another kind of car but a toyota they are simply the very best. My daughter will be 16 in six years and I will hand it down to her and buy me a new one. That is how much trust I have in the seuuoia and toyota:)

Sequoia was recommended to me by a friend when I was about to buy a BMW X5. I did not regret changing my mind to a Seqoia even though I still drive my BMW 5 series. The truck is good on the road. I drove from NYC to Atlanta and back. The Truck was so comfortable in driving and use less gas than I expect and it save me a lot of money compared to flying a family of 5 to Atlanta and return plus my Kids love it so much. I recommend it any one who like good elevation and confortable driving with family.

I purchaed my sequioa in 2003. I'm just getting ready to trade in now. If the gas prices were not so outrageous, I might purchase another. I have over 200,000 miles. It is great for long distance travel with the gas. Very comfortable.

I seen this truck at the 2003 Auto Rama - fell in love with it. Took a few years before I could get it....but she's mine now. It's great for long trips...very comfortable. Gas mileage might not be the best....but I had a 4-Runner before I got this one and the Sequoia does just as good if not better on gas mileage. I am from the northeat Ohio area and my brother lives in Jersey...I can make the trip there without filling up!! Don't think that's too bad.

Great vehicle

by from Illinois on July 11, 2011

This vehicle is great for what it was built for. I can haul 8 people and pull a boat or camper. We love it.

This was our car...we loved it and only traded it in because we had no need for an SUV of this size. The one drawback is a large gas tank that gets about 13-15 mpg, but at least it takes Regular. If you need a three-row seat SUV that still has lots of cargo space, this the car for you.

I never thought gas would be well over $3 a gal, right after I bought a full size suv. This truck can really guzzle the fuel. The ride is very comfortble, and the styling is good. Whats the deal with the hidden clock? Plenty of room for doing everything with everyone. Just be sure you can fill the tank every few days.....

Vehicle for the Family

I purchased a 2003 Sequoia for my wife and son. My wife loves the vehilce and my son loves the DVD system it came with. I love that my family loves the vehicle, but the money needed to keep the gas tank full can get into the hundreds of dollars for the month. Big gas tank + bad gas mileage = $$$$. I love too drive this truck though so it is worth the money. It will be our family vehilce for many years.

i did allot of shopping and research. The tahoe and pathfinder both had transmission problems. The sequoia is very roomy and although it is big it has a tight turning radius and is very comfortable to drive and ride in. Mine is a 2003 and has 4wd so i can use it in the desert etc. Yes I would like better mileage but the mileage is same or better than the tahoe and mine has 4wd. I have retired and plan to use the Sequoia for traveling to see family and traveling to the state and national parks. I am very pleased.
