As a newbee to SUVs I absolutely love my Sequoia. Gas mileage isn't as bad as you would think for a V8, but if you drive it like a racecar your miles per gallon will decrease big time. The only thing I wish they did better was the dash and console. It's identical to that of the Tundra and quite honestly not the most elegant or fun to look at. I guess if you can live with that or without, then this is a great ride. Smooth on the road, power when you need it and quite elegant for the price range. I'm definitely hooked and look forward to the next Sequoia model.
Height, smooth drive and handling. Great JBL sound system. Comfort and space.
Dashboard and console should be remodeled. Make it fun and interesting. Spruce it up a bit. Maybe some glowing gages.
