2003 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
We bought our 'o3 Sequoia new and have put over 105K on it since. My wife loves it and doesn't want anything else. I never thought she'd adjust so easily to such a large vehicle--no problem. The thing is rugged--we hit a guard rail at about 60 mph when we first got, and although it did considerable damage, we felt completely safe--it could have been MUCH worse. This was the only 4 wheel drive that could get out of our neighborhood during this winter's blizzard in Northern VA. Our neighbors were cheering us as we blazed a trail up the street. I'd consider getting a new one--if I could get my wife to give up her old one!!!!
The Car has been bullet proof--only routine maintenance. Its big, roomy, powerful and safe. 8 people?--no problem!
I'm not crazy about the stereo system. You have to absolutely rotate the tires every 3-4K miles, or they will get chewed up.
