2001 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
I drive more than most Moms I know, and this car has been fabulous in terms of reliability-I had one minor problem with the CD player freezing during the winter but that was worked out. Other than that, it has NEVER broken down, and I have over 110K on the car that is just over 4 years old. Design problems they could fix are that the doors are so heavy they don't stay open on their own (so getting younger children out can be challenging) and they could streamline the overall design so it's not so bulky. Those are my only two negative comments.
Reliability, ability to fit 8 adults comfortably if necessary.
Better door design so they stay open when entering and exiting.
