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


Review

Toyota doesn't know how to build
trucks or take care of customers. 4WD
broke first time I used 4WLow in deep
snow (in my driveway). Dealer accused
me of abuse (had to be because
Toyota's don't break...unbelievable
arrogance). Got it resolved (had to
go to another dealer who took mercy on
me) but Toyota help center was no help
at all. Took 2 months to resolve and
repair. It also eats brakes (we drive
VERY conservatively) and the
windshield has cracked twice for no
apparent reason. Clicking noise of
fuel injectors when cold. Overall, a
total turkey. If you want to buy a
full-sized SUV buy American. Lesson
learned.


Best Features

Gets pretty good MPG for a large SUV (20 hgwy at 65); power folding mirrors; power rear window


Worst Features

Get a trasnfer case that wont break when you use it. Fix noisy injectors, windshield crack problem, and put bigger brakes on it. Could also use more power (smooth but slow).

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


Review

Very quiet ride and engine; extremely
reliable; very spacious, with great
usability and versatility on use of
the cabin/cargo space; easy to
operate; respectable gas mileage,
better than peers; for such a powerful
V-8, nice look. Do know that this is
a large, full-size vehicle, tougher to
manuever and drive for those
inexperienced.


Best Features

Engine reliability. Smooth ride. Great user controls. Powerful A/C. A lot of driver comforts and ergonomics.


Worst Features

"Build up" the look of the front end profile, somewhat the look of the Land Cruiser. Have armrests for both sides of each front cabin seats. Spring load the between seat storage compartment so that it doesn't slam down with contents in it. Try to alleviate the blind spot for driver.

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


Review

While the truck has performed well
generally and is great in snow and
rain, but there have been inumerable
other "minor mechancial failures" such
as power locks, windows and antena's
all needing repairs as well other
other issues. The problem...? These
items are out of warantee and should
not be breaking on a 2.5 yr old truck
and have cost over $2,000 to repair.
Toyota should come up with fold flat
middle and rear seats. While they fold
down, they do not fld flat and are
cumbersome to remove from the truck
and as a result take up considerable
storage room when carrying cargo. Also
the engine is slightly under powered.


Best Features

Room for adults including headroom and leg room in all three rows.


Worst Features

Fold flat middle and rear seats and upgrade the horsepower of the engine.

Review

great vehicle, tough to see what's
behind you when reversing, eats up the
highway and off-road nicely, great for
large families


Best Features

lots of room, rides nice


Worst Features

too many interior plastic parts popped off - poor connectors need improvement, put in lighted mirrors on visors on SR5

Review

Looked at a few dif big suv,s,like
style,toyota qual.
tho u can see how the price was
trimmed, we have a Rav 4,much is
similar in looks and feel, not really
what you would expect on a car like
this,not flimsy but not substantial.
Seems like a good car all in all,
however,one thing i was not impressed
with were the seats,drivers needs more
side support, i felt like i would slide
off, also my left leg rubbed against
the door panel, it was uncomfortable.
