2006 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)
5/2009 bought a 2006 sequoia, used but new to us. We searched and test drove numerous cars - loading and unloading 3 smaller kids into each for test drives. Toyota Seqouia's withstood our kid tested-mother approved! It definitely is a beast of a vehicle but with running boards the kids can easily handle getting in and out. Our 4 yr old can easily buckle herself up now, couldn't in our dodge mini van. 3 kids (2 in car seats) fit totally comfortably in the middle bench seat. Easy fold up seat to get to the 3rd row. Totally surprised I didn't have to give up much trunk space. This vehicle fell into our lap and we jumped on it; even though it had higher miles we've been told Toyota's are long lasting!
Very comfy seats, would have preferred middle captains chairs, but we didn't get to choose... but it all worked out because the middle seat is HUGE and had elbow room for 3 kids. Comfy driver's arm rests, middle console. If door is open & you try to lock it with your keyring thing, it makes a loud beep.
Clock is in odd spot, should have been on top of console. Radio is harder to reach (I'm a small 5ft lady).
