Am I the Only One?
By Texas Toyota on
2005 Toyota Sequoia Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
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.
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.
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.
