2004 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

My 2004 Sequioa with 130,000 miles isn't that great when compared to my 2003 Tahoe with 258,000. When comparing the two, the Sequioa isn't nearly as powerful, fuel economy isn't as good, and the towing capacity pales in comparison. The Sequioa doesn't ride or drive as well as the Tahoe. Many of the plastic pieces are falling of of the Sequioa, but I guess the worst thing for me is the drivers seat. If you are over 6 feet tall with long legs then you can forget about being comfortable while driving because the seat will not move back far enough. I will definitely buy the Chevy Tahoe again. It's a great truck. The Sequioa, I doubt that I'll ever buy another.


Favorite Features

Exterior styling


Suggested Improvements

More comfort, better fuel mileage, more powerful engine, better towing capacity.

2004 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Just bought this the end of Sept. '07 with 48K on it. It now has 52.5k. We are a family of 5. We liked all the bells and whistles on this model because it had everything that the Limited had minus the heated seats. We own a '96 Tahoe, and just got rid of an '01 Odyssey minivan, and this takes the vans place. We gave up fuel mileage (22 vs. 18 in the Sequoia) and ride comfort. The Toyota definitely rides rougher than the Tahoe, but it gets better mileage and we love all the room/extra seats. We have had one mechanical issue, we had to replace the oil pressure sending unit. My wife is dissapointed that the rubber cup holder "fingers" have been torn/worn prematurely.


Favorite Features

Sunroof (have not had one on the previous 4 vehicles we have owned and missed it). Leg room for all 3 seats, towing capacity. Better fuel mileage than my '96 2wd Tahoe. Great sound system, comfortable seats. Rear window feature.


Suggested Improvements

I wish for 20MPG out of this. Better highway ride quality it still rides like a truck. Better visibility. Memory driver seat. Steering wheel radio controls. Rear back up camera.

Review

Leg room for driver is an issue if over 6'. Overall this is a quality vehicle. Having driven all other SUVs, this is the winner. Leather is a MUST if you have kids, also if Toyota could put backseat controls for driver to use when kids fall asleep. Great buy!


Favorite Features

Room, leather, quality.


Suggested Improvements

Backseat controls for driver. The ability to lie seats back without stopping for when kids fall asleep.

2004 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

After owning both a Suburban and Expedition, I can say this is the best of the breed. The smooth ride, tight control, luxurious interior, and JBL sound system make long trips enjoyable. The heart of a Tundra and the soul of a Lexus. I love it!


Favorite Features

Numerous power outlets, smooth ride, sound system.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage. 16 MPG city and highway is OK for the class, but these days something around 20 MPG would put the Sequoia at the top.

Review

Received 8 miles per gal when tested on hwy. Very poor gas mileage in comparison to what it should be. Style sold us but not very kid friendly. No access to 3rd row seat and no cup holders for 2nd row seat reachable by children. Mostly disappointed with efficiency.


Favorite Features

Exterior style.


Suggested Improvements

Gas mileage. Cup holders. Accessible access to 3rd row seat.

Review

The Sequoia has been a great vehicle for my family. The size is fabulous on trips, and everyone is very comfortable. The leather interior is a must for a family, with spills etc. We've just done routine maintenance and have never had any mechanical problems.


Suggested Improvements

I wish I was able to use the keyless entry to lock the doors prior to closing all of them.

Review

I upgraded to the Sequoia so I would have room to hall my kids and all their sports gear around. I love the comfort and the ability to fold the seats up or remove them depending on how much room I need. It has a smooth ride and is just as comfortable as my Lexus ES300 was but with lots more room!


Favorite Features

Roomy, Comfortable


Suggested Improvements

Make the removable seats a little lighter or make them so they fold down into the floor of the vehicle.

Review

This vehicle has been great. You will not be disappointed. The only problem I have is that the passanger door does not shut like the rest; misaligned, however no wind noise heard. I am afraid to go to dealership because the fix might be worse. My SR5 is loaded without the sunroof I dont need. Looks better than the Expedition.


Favorite Features

looks, ride

none

Review

Just bought this beautiful Sequoia last week to take advantage of year end prices. It is awesome! I can't wait for each next chance to drive!


Favorite Features

The styling is classy and not too bulky. The DVD player is a blessing! It entrances the kids I'm totin' around and gives me peace & quiet! It handles great and gives a nice smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

The lcd displays for the clock and overhead could be brighter or non-glare covers used. Hard to see in the day.
