Good SUV But Needs Improvement
By Bob on
2001 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
I purchased a first model year Sequoia new. The vehicle handles great in snow. The high road clearance and 4 wheel drive will get you through any weather condition except icing conditions. The front and second row seats are comfortable for adults. The third row seats are only suitable for kids. I don't think that the reliability is up to what you should expect from Toyota or a vehicle costing just under 50K. The brake computers went and it took three weeks for Toyota to figure out how to repair it. My 4-wheel drive just died. The throttle computer broke. I have had to spend about $3,500 a year for the last two years in repairs. Interior creature comforts are lacking
All weather ability. Plenty of interior room.
1) Lighter easier to remove third row seats. 2) Driver seat memory. 3) Move the door mirror control from between the front seats to the driver's door. Ladies place their handbags between the seats and the mirrors move. 4) Offer a backup camera or radar system. 5) Improve rear storage bin cover.
