2003 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)
The Sequoia is very comfortable to travel in, has loads of room, but what really sold me were the comfortable reclining 3rd row seats. BTW, the seats in the Sequoia are not quite as short as most in the Toyota line. Gas mileage is not great - 15-19 mpg, but I can't pull a boat with an Accord. The V8 engine is a real jewel & smooth as butter, but does lack a little torque - not recommended for towing in the mountains - a fine SUV!
Whole vehicle feels like a swiss watch- nice leather, great 4WD in snow and ice, comfortably hauls 8 people (small folks in 3rd row is best). Quality, quality, quality & great resale value. Smooth & quiet ride too!
I wish Toyota made a turbo diesel. Engine is fine, but at 15 MPG, I want some more horsepower. The newer Sequoia has a little more torque & HP. Styling is not quite my favorite, but I'm still proud to own it and in no way regret my purchase. I'd but it again in a second- I drove EVERYTHING else!
