2003 Toyota Sequoia SUV Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We just purchased this vehicle less than a month ago and have had to make several trips to the dealership with it. Our most distressful problem is the poor interior build quality and a sunroof that squeaks over bumpy roads to the point of distraction. As I type this review, the roof still squeaks and no one at my dealership seems to know what or why it is doing this. The slogan should read, "interior by mattel". Also, the rear audio plate looks like it's falling off even after THAT was replaced. After spending 50+ thousand on this truck I want to kick myself. There are better values out there.


Best Features

spacious interior


Worst Features

lose the "marbelized" interior plate on the dash. It looks cheap and tacky. Redesign the radio plate (ALL the Sequoias on the lot had this same problem). Also, a 3rd row that folds into the floor would be better.

2003 Toyota Sequoia SUV SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Quiet ride, roomy 1st and 2nd row. 3rd row seat should fold flat and optionally with a touch of a button like the Expedition. Getting in and out of 3rd seat thru folding of the 2nd row seat can be improved. Loved the different readings available in the convenience package. It tells me the actual mileage per gallon used. The mileage improves as the car is driven more. Can't assume that keyless entry is standard in the SR5.


Best Features

Styling, comfort, lots of room for cargo or people, quality, JBL 6 CD system.


Worst Features

Clock not placed so low and blocked from driver's view. Improved mileage. 3rd row seat folds flat into the car.

Review

We traded in a 2002 BWW 330i. I realy thought I would miss that car, it was so fun to drive, all the salesmen on the lot thought we were nuts. With a baby on the way we felt we needed more room. It says a lot that I don't realy miss that car.


Best Features

Sitting up high ( easy to see over other cars ) The room


Worst Features

Wish it could pull more.

2003 Toyota Sequoia SUV SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Great family vehicle for urban adventure. Good vehicle size. Great fit and finish. Comfortable ride for a truck platform based SUV. Great paint. Fair sound system. Love the dual AC with climate control. Sturdy well- built. Topnotch quality. Safe vehicle. But not perfect. See improvement suggestions.


Best Features

Large SUV. Comfortable and quiet ride. Good turning radius.


Worst Features

Too many sunglass holders!. Hard feel and hesitant brake system. Conflicting choices on vehicle packages/options. Sucks too much gas with only 240 horses! Needed bigger tires/wheels to compensate for the overall size of SUV.
