Be realistic, and you'll love it

2008 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4dr SUV (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
Love my 2WD 5.7 L SR5 Sequoia. It is everything that the reviews say it is. Very large vehicle, yet handles surprisingly well. Easy to corner and park. Tons of power. Struggles with MPG in town, obviously, but really does surprisingly well on the highway. "Sweet spot" on the highway is about 68 for my Sequoia. Put the cruise on around there, and I consistently get 22-23 MPG, which is great to me. My SR5 came with a leather upgrade, and the quality is very high. Very happy so far with my purchase
Fold flat 2nd and 3rd row seats. You can really haul a big load. I like the sleek instrumentation on the interior and all the storage compartments.
Obviously, would be better if it got 30 MPG, but just know what you're getting into before you buy. One complaint might be that upgrading packages from SR5 to Limited often crossed a price breaking point. More cost efficient to get SR5 with upgrades. Maybe make the Limited package more affordable
