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


Review

This was a great vehicle when purchased. We average about 11000 miles per year. At the end of last summer the air conditioner went out at the tune of $2500! No recall just a service bulletin. Yeh ok - No help either from the dealership. Now the suspension is wearing out at the tune of $500- after 52,000 miles. This is a daily driver truck driven by my wife. Buyer beware. For a $45000 plus vehicle when new and make sure you figure in your maintenance costs. Or make sure you buy that extended warranty (that I usually don't believe in) I thought Toyota meant quality.

Vehicle

2001 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

When we first bought this suv I thought we had made a mistake because of its size, after a short amount of time I loved the size, comfort, power and ride. This is a safe suv to drive and is easy to manuever in traffic, the pick-up is great. I would buy another Sequoia.


Favorite Features

The power of the V8 engine and the safety it provides. The seats that can be removed for extra cargo. And the large seats that are very comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

The only minor adjustments are the lack of mirror lights on the visors, no radio controls on the steering wheel and no automatic lights. This is a surprising lack of perks since I bought this car at the top of the price range (@45,000).

2001 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We have three boys and two dogs and this is the perfect car for us. It rides like a car, but has so much power. We have towed a travel trailer across 5 states with it like a breeze. We are a tall family (my 15 yr old is 6'5") and this Sequoia is very comfortable for all of us to ride in. Even the 3rd row seat has adequate leg room. We have been very happy with this SUV.


Favorite Features

Easy, smooth ride & comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

If only it could get better gas mileage. 16-17 MPG isn't bad for its power & size.

Just an average SUV, with some annoying issues, like brakes that need replacement too often, doors that won't stay open and a poor speaker system, lack of ease when trying to get to the rear seats


Suggested Improvements

doors, gas mileage, speakers,

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


Review

We've loved the room and comfort of the Sequoia but we are spending a fortune on gas! It has been a very reliable vehicle for us but we've had a few problems. Air conditioning in 2nd row stopped working, VSC went out, front brake rotors warped, back latch broke. Spending 2K/year on maintenance.


Favorite Features

Leather/heated seats (great for cleaning up after kids); 4WD; plenty of room for long trips


Suggested Improvements

Less expensive parts (VSC component $1200; back latch $500)
