2002 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
Bought new in 2002 and now have 110K miles on vehicle with little problems. After 2 years, rear window got REAL sluggish, so we left it up for a year afraid it would break. Toyota told us they had replaced a lot of motors. Waited one year, did nothing, works fine now. Too big to really go brush busting but wife likes it. I prefer my 1985 Land Cruiser. Parking brake stinks and truck lurchs forward after applying brake on slight incline. 3 weeks after brake service can drive 55 mph with parking brake on before realizing it's on. Sister bought an 06, no parking brake problem. Mileage improved after 100K. Now we get 16.6 mpg in Georgia. Only get 6 mpg pulling 3500 pound boat though.
Removable seats, storage capacity.
Better parking brake - appears to be fixed in newer models. Manual windows. More ground clearance for off road. Why pay cost of FJ Cruiser when you can get the Sequoia for about the same. Too plush to be off road vehicle and is better suited for highways.
