2006 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Overall good SUV. We bought it brand new in fall of 2005. But, we actually liked our 2 previous Chevy Suburbans WAY more. We got the Limited Sequoia with DVD. The 3rd row seat is actually comfortable for adults. In just 6 years, we have put approx. 130,000 miles. The gas mileage is horrible. I get 15 combined. Next cars will be a Suburban or Audi Q7 diesel for the fuel economy. Also, acceleration left something to be desired.


Best Features

DVD, interior design, 3rd row seat, 4WD


Worst Features

Interior quality, acceleration, gas mileage, annoying engine squeak

2006 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

For a family of four this SUV takes us where we want without any bad experiences on the road. From our Chicago home to the mountain roads of Mt.Rushmore or to the Niagara Falls, two trips to New York, occasional camping trips this truck just keeps on going. I just had two repairs since I own this sequoia; one for the rear passenger ac climate control and the rear window wiper motor replaced.


Best Features

The comfortable 3rd row seats come handy when I had to drive/tour visiting friends around Chicago.


Worst Features

less plastic materials

2006 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Previous happy Toyota owner. I have had nothing but problems - electrical problems with this SUV since I got it. Toyota seems to not care. I tried arbitration with no luck. My car at 2 yrs old spent ONE month at the dealer maintenance only to have more electrical problems. I cannot let it idle without it wanting to stall - such a bummer when stuck in traffic!! At the time of arbitration Toyota claimed that the car is working at that instant so there is no issue, they will continue to fix problems that arise. That is not product reliability to me. I think I got stuck with the lemon.


Best Features

I do like the design of the vehicle. I enjoy driving it.


Worst Features

Build a $48,000 car that doesn't break down. I hate having to get towed with two children along for the ride!

2006 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

This is the second Sequoia I have owned, and I could not be more pleased. My first one had 135,000 miles on it, looked and drove like new when traded. I now have 75,000 miles on the 2006, and have NEVER had a service call for any reason. I am meticulous about care and maintenance, but zero issues in 200,000 miles says it all. This one has the captains chairs in the back and DVD, which are the ultimate peacemaker on long trips. Elegant enough for two couples out on the town, yet yank the seats and its a Home Depot special. Have I mentioned I love this thing?


Best Features

Unbelievable versatility, exceptional reliability.


Worst Features

A hybrid version would be nice, but only if it gets substantially better mileage. (GM's hybrid SUV's are a joke -- incredible complexity and expense for only a 4 MPG improvement). Toyota, can you do it better? If so, sign me up!

2006 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

We needed a little more room with the addition of a third child to our family. We traded in our Lexus GX470 and the only thing we miss is the complimentary loaner car a few times a year for oil changes. The Sequoia goes through any mild to medium difficulty 4wd trails with no problem. On more difficult stuff, I feel a lot less guilty about bottoming out a Sequoia than a Lexus...and my pocket book doesn't pay nearly as much for the plastic you replace on the Lexus. If I had it to do over, I would have bought a Sequoia 4wd in the 1st place. Sure, the Lexus won 4wd drive magazine 4- wheeler of the year a few times, but how often do you do Rincon. I can bang my Sequoia around w/no regrets.
