2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
After a full month of intensive
research, I found the following: Best
Resale Value (Sequoia), Best Overall
Reliability (Sequoia), Best Safety
Features (Sequoia-I got the front and
rear side cutain airbags with rollover
protestion package). Yes the Sequoia
costs a litle more in the beginning,
but because of resale value and
reliability it cost's you less in the
long run. Additonally, my dealer
(Stokes Brown Toyota) provided me with
a great deal and has excellent service
after the sale (This is my second
Toyota from them). Plus its built in
Indiana, so you can feel good that you
are buying a vehicle that provides jobs
Hoping for the same great reliability I
had with my Tundra since the Sequoia is
based on the same platform and are
built side by side at the Indiana
Plant. Like the additional option of
the Side Curtain Airbags-No vehicle can
guarantee 100% safety, but would rather
have them than not.
Make the Side Curtain Airbag/Anti Roll
Over package standard-The $500 MSRP /
$430 Invoice for this option is a small
price for the extra piece of mind.
Also would like to see an "ON-STAR"
type of system offered. Gas Mileage
(But I know this going in, but any help
would be great).
