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


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.

2004 Toyota Sequoia SUV Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Just passed 45K on my 04 Sequoia, It hurts to drive into gas station. Except that, I don't have too much complaint. It is roomy, comfortable (the best comfortable seats on cars I ever owned), quiet BUT clumsy. What can I complain? It is a BIG SUV, of course, it won't drive/handle as easy as Accord... I would like to see it acclerate a little faster at traffic light. Feel like grandpa when light turns green.


Favorite Features

Roomy, quietness, comfortable seats, reliability


Suggested Improvements

More powerful to pick up speed at traffic light. Blind spot while turning.

Review

I have owned my Sequoia for over a year now. Other than gas mileage, which is a fundamental problem for ALL full size SUVs (my Sequoia gets 14-15 mpg - not too bad). It has an awesome look and drives like you're on a cloud. It has a very quiet ride too. We often pack 5 adults and 2 kids in the car for 2hr plus rides and it has tons of room and comfort. It is the first auto I have purchased that I have told people is the best auto I have ever owned. Other manufacturers take a lesson from Toyota... they got it right!


Favorite Features

4WD and comfortable, roomy interior


Suggested Improvements

Hybrid... just a matter of time

Review

I was disappointed with this vehicle. I had always heard how wonderful Toyota was and actually I liked my jeep grand cherokee much better. I only traded it because I needed a bigger vehicle. The rear liftgate has been stuck shut 7 times and this seems to be a common problem. Also - the rear window stopped working after about 50K miles. When the seats are folded up, they slam backwards and can catch a kids hand or foot if you're not careful. I also think for the price, the passenger side should have a power lumbar (like the Chevys and Jeeps have). Overall - the seats are stiff and not comfortable - when I trade I will be going back to Jeep or to a Suburban.


Favorite Features

Favorite features are the large sunroof and DVD system combined. I did like the rear window going down (when it worked.)


Suggested Improvements

Fix the rear hatch. Though I was told it was because it is driven on a dirt road. But isn't this a 4X4 and shouldn't it be able to handle a dirt road??? Also fix the seats so when they are folded up they lock in place so they don't slam down.
