Toyota is hands down the most reliable vehicle!

Love the room, especially the storage space of the Sequoia as well as the dependability. It is, in my opinion, the most reliable vehicle on the roads! I went from Sequoia to Lexus GX to Dodge Longhorn to Audi Q8 all within 5 years yet Toyota Sequoia has won me back for my life,


Gammy Ride

LOVE THIS CAR!! Love the look and the smooth ride. Love that the grand babies love the platinum package with the Blu Ray and premium sound we sound like a traveling theater.
