My Sequoia
By british1970 on 03/17/08 22:03 PM (PDT)

Vehicle

2005 Toyota Sequoia 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.

Great SUV

2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Can't go wrong with this SUV. Built on the Tundra platform, but rides like a car with the power of a truck!

Best car ever

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

Review

Absolutely love this rig. Have had it for 2 years now and can't complain about anything. Super reliable. Zero down time. Great towning vehicle. Beautiful inside and out. Easy to operate. Nav is a life saver. Grandkids love the DVD. Just wish it got a little better gas mileage, but it's a nice trade off I guess. Handles super and rides great. Ordered ours fully loaded with most everything. You won't be sorry. Thousands less than Lexus but same quality.

Good SUV for the money

Vehicle

2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

All SUVs are overpriced in my book, but if you need the size its a good purchase. Has good power. Not as much cargo room as one would expect. Rather noisy. I am average build and I feel like a midget trying to reach for everything. Person who decided where the heated seats button was placed should be shot. Solid feeling, makes one feel very safe. Well put together. Mileage is awful in general, but good in its class. "Toyota Quality" is overrated as I've had a rather long list of things that have had to be repaired (under warranty of course) like rear window, tire pressure gauge and rear wiper.

Nice vehicle

Vehicle

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

Review

I really enjoy driving this vehicle. It handles nicely and has ample cargo room. Back seats fold up easily for addl cargo room. Gas mileage is poor, but I expected that when I bought it. Great car for 3 kids who can climb in the back and buckle themselves in. Comfort is so so. We also own a Chevy Suburban and take that on road trips due to more comfortable seats and additional leg room. Placement of DVD player is poor - located inside storage compartment between front driver and passenger seats. Must pull over to put in new movie if alone in front seat. Placement of seat warmer switches poor. They get turned on accidently all the time. Dash controls are designed well.

Off road machine

Review

I ended up pulling out two full-size trucks and a lincoln navigator out that were stuck in the snow. I am very impressed with its offroad capability. The differential lock is a great feature and it makes it almost impossible to stop. Awesome vehicle! Very glad I bought it!

OH What a Failing
By ronc on 02/14/07 20:17 PM (PST)

Vehicle

2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

Got rid of a Trailblazer. Picked the Sequoia for Toyota reliability. Almost immediately observed a problem with oil pressure. Dealer had no clue ("never seen that before"). Went to arbitration, corporate ultimately claimed - ready for this?- "they all do that." Aside from hoping the engine doesn't seize, it's a nice driving vehicle, well suited to its purpose. I want to get rid of it, though. Toyotas are good if you get a good one. If you get a bad one, be advised you're on your own.

Am I the Only One?
By Texas Toyota on 02/12/07 13:04 PM (PST)

Vehicle

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

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.

20 Months of Ownership

Vehicle

2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I prefer to wait a while before I offer my opinion so this should help used car buyers. The Sequoia is an excellent vehicle. Don't buy this truck if you're looking for a lot of gizmos. It's pretty plain jane compared to the competition. However, if you're looking for a very smooth ride and the satisfaction of knowing this SUV will last forever then buy one. This is a classic Toyota... great ride, quality, reliability and timeless styling. Just a couple of negatives mentioned below. I won't complain about gas mileage. I still don't understand people who buy a V8 SUV and do???

Wife's New Car

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

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.
