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


Review

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.


Best Features

Dealer installed a DVD player with headphones. The JBL sound system. Towing capacity. Comfortable ride.

2002 Toyota Sequoia SUV SR5 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

owned since new. brought home with a transmission fluid leak- taken care of and has not been a problem. The rear door handle recently came off for the second time. First time about a year old under warranty. This time $400+ to repair. Had rear window motor replaced at the same time as the window has not worked for the last two years. Another $400 and change. Turn signal has not canceled itself for last year- $700 to fix, said no thanks. Interior pull handles broke months after purchase and driver's seat leather (dealer installed at purchase) is torn. Rear dome light works one out of ten times- dealer unable to find short. First and last Toyota. The car has less than 60K on it.


Best Features

looks. roomy second row.Good engine.


Worst Features

quality of materials. Front seat lateral support

2002 Toyota Sequoia SUV SR5 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Sequoia is great for road trips, can hold lots of stuff, mechanically hasn't left me stranded. Best light duty off road ride of any SUV I've ridden. However, it is a pig to drive in town, the exhaust manifold noise, I swear gets louder every day, and this is even after I had the "Tundra" factory recall performed on my Sequoia exhaust manifold. The vehicle has never had better than 15.5 mpg avg. Interior is falling apart (like a 90s era GM). Color keyed exterior plastics, like mirrors and spoilers have shedded their clear coat (like all 4yr old Korean cars). Stereo bad. Rear window on lift gate is stuck up, even after warranty repair. A/C clutch went out 92k mi. Resale value is terrible!


Best Features

Ride is fantastic, but shocks seem to be fading fast, ride deteriorating at 90k mi. Never left me stranded. Roof rails can hold mega loads.

Review

We bought our 2002 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4x4 New and have been all over the US threw a snow storm on I40 from Flagstaff AZ to Texas and never-never slipped a wheel and Fords-Chev-Cad- SUV's tried to follow me and ended up stuck on the side of the road ! Believe me the snow was deep and the interstate was closed! This is by far the best and safest SUV on the road! Thank you TOYOTA from the Amerson family,


Worst Features

Better gas MPG!

Review

I bought the Sequoia used with 22,000 miles. The SUV has been super in every aspect except the front brakes, rotors warped three times, the Toyota dealer replaced at no charge to me for both rotors and pads. It is very comfortable on long trips for front and rear passengers. The average mpg is 16 that I can live with. Hauling my travel trailer it gets 11 mpg, still ok in my book, since the trailer weighs 5,500 lbs fully loaded. I have had no problem with the engine and transmission, both run very smooth.


Best Features

Seats big and comfortable. Stability control was standard on this SUV before the domestic SUVs offered it. Easy to drive with a trailer behind. Power driver and passenger seats, cupholders, storage, sound system, etc.


Worst Features

Improve the front brakes. Have seats disappear into floor rather than having to take them out to provide a flat floor for more room.
