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


Review

Went from a Previa to the Sequoia. We consider Armada a great vehicle with great acceleration (0-60 is 1.5 secs faster than Sequoia and fold away seats and bold styling. Armada's brake issue was troublesome though. Chose Sequoia last minute for the smooth, quiet ride and the Toyota reliability (despite a more conservatively styled exterior and 20hp less). Armada is great if you tow and have time to spend at the shop to remedy the brakes. The Sequoia is the ULTIMATE minivan substitute if comfort, dependability, gas mileage, and interior space/flexibility are paramount(rear seat splits while Armada's is one-piece). There are more things standard on Sequoia than the brochure indicates.


Best Features

Roll down tailgate window, front and rear auto climate control, dual powered seats, footwell light for driver, tire pressure monitor, rattle/squeek free ride that's hushed. The engine performs at a low growl under heavy acceleration. Height control air suspension is neat.


Worst Features

Gas mileage is fine but if Toyota could make it better, all would be great. Standard automatic lights, power folding mirrors on SR5, and standard electrochromatic rearview mirror would be appreciated, as in the Armada.

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


Review

the sequoia has a comfortable ride for being built on a truck frame. all the options for safety and entertainment are great.


Best Features

plenty of room, passenger comfort, (even in the third row for an adult) safety features like traction control, abs, and many more.


Worst Features

the classic styling could be upgraded to a more futuristic appeal.

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


Review

Good ride and plenty of power - nice styling - had problem with design of 3rd row seat resulting in a bent latching mechanism - Toyota will not stand behind the product and repair under warranty. Also having trouble with bad exhaust odor in cabin after heavy acceleration - this seems to big a very common complaint from owners, but dealer in Austin did not know what to do about it. Will probably consider other makes next time around.


Best Features

Ride height great - comfortable on road trips - plenty of legroom in first & and second row seats


Worst Features

Must get rid of the exhaust odor problem experienced in cabin after hard acceleration, and need to redesign the third row seats.
