2005 Toyota Sequoia SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Very nice and very reliable, the only problem with Sequoia 05 is there is NO automatic door hatch in the back and its hard to operate when it rains or when you have something in your hand and consumes a lot of gas,but the rest is ok it's very powerful.


Suggested Improvements

Make an automatic power door hatch in the rear door for my 05 Sequoia.

Review

The Sequoia is a beautiful SUV. We replaced a Suburban with it but unfortunately have been disappointed. The ride is not only rougher but the road noise is much louder. We replaced the factory tires hoping to reduce the road noise but that didn't help. The gas mileage is lower than advertised being consistently 13.6 MPG combined city/highway (about 17 - 18 MPG highway). Also, its braking distance seems longer. There were several little problems for the first six months. This is our first Toyota and I have not seen a big difference in quality or performance.


Favorite Features

The interior is nice and it has plenty of cup holders. The JBL sound system is good. The sun roof is water tight and it is quite.


Suggested Improvements

The seat portion of the front seats are too short for my legs. It stops about mid-thigh. It would be more comfortable if it extended a few more inches. Deaden the road noise.

Review

My wife loves this car; everything from the comfort to the design, the power on acceleration, handling, the sound system, the silence when the widows are up, cargo space, the navigation system, back up camera, satellite radio and the DVD player.


Favorite Features

Memory for the seat and mirror adjustments.


Suggested Improvements

Emergency brake should automatically disengage when shifting out of park.

Review

Comfort, and handling are excellent. The clock and climate control instruments are hard to read as they is low and to the side. The car also vibrates at a harmonic frequency when you drive with the rear windows down.


Favorite Features

Seat heaters, electric folding mirrors, leather and DC converter.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage is absolutely critical!

Review

I got this Sequoia for almost a year now and everytime I used it, it put a smile on my face because I know that I made the right decision on buying this car . The safety and reliability you can't ask for more.Two thumbs up...


Favorite Features

Easy to handle and if you want some more power going in to the freeway, just step on the gas pedal and you'll get your answer.


Suggested Improvements

Maybe an automatic rear door lift we'll be ok.
