Still loving it

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

Bought this SUV new in 2001. Traded in a 4 Runner. Now have nearly 100M miles. We have had no mechanical problems of any kind. Great Vacation Car. Great Car for hauling kids stuff to college. The highway comfort and ride is the best I have experienced in any vehicle. It is large for hauling stuff but there is no bouncing or truck like handling. No rust, no rattles, steering and brakes still solid after nearly 10 years. We don't drive off road, but the Sequoia is great in the snow here in Chicago. Good speed and acceleration for highway passing. Mileage is superb for a vehicle this size. Better than our Acura MDX and friend's Explorer.




Big mistake

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

First of all, I am an experienced mechanic. My wife wanted this car for the kids, she likes it. When I drive this truck here are the things I find wrong with it: right rear blind spot, you have to fold down the right rear seat to see your blind spot and to reverse, brakes issues (2 sets of pads & rotors in 1 year) suspensions is very poor, interior is cheap, as far as engine and transmission goes Toyota's quality is there. Other than that I would rather buy the Yukon or Tahoe, it's a much better quality truck thank the Sequoia any day. If you have the money to spare, then buy the Landcruiser of which Toyota put a lot of quality and it's day and night compare to this piece of junk Sequoia

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

Bought my Toyota and it already had 80K miles on it. I used it to tow my G35 coupe on a car hauler from Michigan to California. Probably was approaching the max tow capacity of the Toyota but it pulled through like a champ. Even through the mountains of Colorado it pulled fine. It is a great drive and very comfortable as well as roomy. Tremendous quality and peace of mind with this vehicle as I would expect from Toyota, particularly in the fit and finish. No rattles, no funny noises of any kind. At over 90K miles it drives like new. I would buy a Sequoia with 100K+ miles on it before a new domestic any day... very unfortunate for the American companies.




I love everything about this

Vehicle: 2001 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

This vehicle has never let me down in any way. I have had it for 7 years (I never keep a vehicle that long!!) and there have been zero problems. I have driven many vehicles and owned all brands in 40 years of driving - this one is without a doubt, the best!! I am waiting for the day that the 2008 hits the dealerships.
