2006 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
I traded in a 2005 4Runner for this vehicle due to uncomfortable seats. The Sequoia is comfortable, yet firm and handles good for a vehicle of this size. My fuel economy has averaged 17.5 MPG on a mix of 75% highway, 25% local driving. The build quaility is excellent and there are no squeaks or rattles. The 4.7L V8 is refined and responsive. Step on it at 40 mph and you will feel pushed back in your seat. My vehicle has a 4.11 rear so it has good acceleration. The 5 speed transmission shifts very well. There is an enormous amout of room for hauling cargo or people. All accessaries work well. Overall, I am very pleased with this vehicle and don't plan to sell it anytime soon.
5 speed transmission; tumble rear seats for storage space.
Clock could be better positioned. Combine outside air temperature display with inside a/c temperature setting. Move center differential lockup switch to a less accessible place so that it cannot be easily pushed by mistake or by a curious passenger.
