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


Review

What a phenomenal vehicle! All Expedition/Tahoe/Suburban shoppers do yourselves a favor and test drive the Sequoia. The differences will be glaringly obvious including the interior features, the convenience and placement of the dashboard knobs/buttons, the purr of the V8 engine and the sleek exterior design.


Best Features

Powerful engine, interior and exterior design and Toyota reliability.


Worst Features

Third row seats are a little clunky to remove. Obviously MPG is poor, but you shouldn't be surprised by horrendous mileage when you're shopping for vehicles in this class.

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


Review

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 Features

Quality, quiet, back hatch window rolls down. Resale is outstanding.


Worst Features

Increase towing weight, and fuel economy (if that's possible) 16.5 miles per gallon.

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


Review

i bought my seq used it was a 2002 sr5 with all bells! My only concern is the brakes. I have had to replace pads twice in one year and rotors once. I do drive quiet a bit. I bought the car with 23k it has 63K in a little over a year. But the car is a joy to drive, very smooth, like the lexus. Had to replace battery, I left on the lights, tires, and brakes.. The car is defint reliable. I would def by another. But only used. The gas will murder your wallet. At aound 3.00 a gallon, you're looking at 85.00 to fill. Brakes run about 200-400, tires are 500.00. So we are buying a smaller car for commuting purposes. The SUV will be for trips and weekends only.


Best Features

Smooth ride! back window lets down! Get the leather seats, and DVD system!


Worst Features

HYBRID!!!!! Better brakes and rotors! GAS mileage!

Review

I was very torn on getting another van or getting an suv. I did know I wanted a Toyota. So I took them both home to test drive and my husband ultimatley made my decision for me. We have a boat and we take it places so I needed something big enough to tow that. I love my Sequoia and I don't see myself getting anything else it is a great comfortable ride and my kids all have there own space. Towing a boat to the Florida Keys was a breeze for the truck also we had no problems what so ever. I love the styling of it. Gas is always a problem nowadays with whatever you drive unless they come out with a hybrid I will drive this till I am old and grey.


Best Features

Leather seating, owning a Toyota, love that the back window goes down on the key fob.

Review

Great highway cruiser. Very comfortable. However, not the Toyota quality I expected. Interior trim pieces kept falling off. Had to do a $2200 front brake job (entire front brake system!) due to poor quality in original materials. Toyota knew about this from the early Tundra's, but never fessed up. I've owned several Toyotas, Hondas and Nissans. This SUV was a big disappointment. Did I mention the poor gas mileage and anemic power? HP up for the latter years, but the original engine was smooth, put underpowered for the weight of the vehicle. Shame on you Toyota!


Best Features

Highway ride. Comfortable seats. Plenty of room. Quality finish, if not fit.


Worst Features

Bury the third row seats in the floor. Offer more than 273 HP for this monster. Give it towing capacity to compete in the segment.
