Review of the 2002 Toyota Sequoia

  • A thoroughly capable full-size SUV that beats Ford and General Motors at their own game.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Ultra-refined drivetrain, surprisingly agile handling, versatile and comfortable interior, impeccable build quality.

  • Cons

    Non-descript styling, comparably low towing capacity.

    The Sequoia is virtually unchanged for 2002. SR5 models have two additional stand-alone options this year: keyless remote and front foglamps.

Excellent vehicle

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

I can fit my family of 5 very comfortably in this SUV. Rides like a Lexus and gets pretty good mileage for the size. Very smooth quiet ride. I will drive the wheels off of mine.




Not your favorite toy. beware!!

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

Purchase the suv with 69,000 miles. My wife had been on me about one so I got it for her. First the rear window motor went out. The reason I purchased it Edmunds had such good ratings and it's a Toyota. Now at 82,000 miles my transmission went out while my wife were driving it. (@ 82,000 miles) I will never buy another Toyota. Very disappointed.




Mileage is the only downfall

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

My Sequoia has been a delight from the very first day. My friends assumed from the look, feel and ride of it, that it was new. I certainly didn't correct them!! On highway trips, it rides like cloud. In town, it handles and responds very well. The gas mileage is the single issue I have with it. I average approximately 16 mpg. Wish it were 21 or more. Love it anyway!




Electrical problems

by on
Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

This vehicle is an extremely comfortable SUV. The gas mileage is terrible, but size does matter. I have had issues with the electrical system, and now the air conditioning compressor. I cannot turn of the TRAC control off or on. Occasionally, the high beams are not usable. Now the air compressor just locked up. This vehicle has led a pampered life with all maintenance taken care of by dealerships. The mileage is only 68,000. What gives? This is my first Toyota, and I purchased because of the outstanding reputation for reliability. This has not been my experience with this vehicle. The gas mileage is also terrible. 15.6 MPG.




Sequoia - it's not just

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

Our Sequoia has over 90k miles, and there have been 2 problems: the oxygen sensor went out ($170), back window motor went out (dealer fixed). Phenomenal build quality, super quiet except some wind noise (to be expected with large suv). High quality leather. Large sunroof.




Best suv i am glad

Vehicle: 2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)

I wanted a truck that was comfortable so we purchased this vehicle so my husband could travel comfortably due to a back injury. We traveled across country with it and he had no problems at all with his back. The vehicle has given us no problems at all. Women out there I would recommend this vehicle to you. It is high so you can see over the cars ahead of you, its very comfortable, I can't say enough about it I love it and so do my dogs.
