Vehicle2008 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4dr SUV (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
ReviewTraded in Odyssey (loved it) to get a SUV that would fit our family of 6 and tow our 4,500lb boat. The Sequoia w\ 5.7L has plenty of power on tap & even more torque. It accelerates better w\ boat in tow than my 2002 Tundra V8 did w\ no boat. Ride is good for a SUV, but definitely not minivan smooth. Ergonomics are pretty good, but cups & controls hard to reach (even w\ my long arms). Like the high ride height & visibility. Middle & back rows easily fit 6'+ passengers w\ leg-room to spare. Avg 16-17mpg, which is good for large SUV in town w\ this much power.
Best FeaturesReliable, powerful, large, and fun to drive. Feel very safe due to safety features, ride height, good control, & impressive braking. Lots of storage space throughout. Climate control & radio is easy to use (like steering wheel controls).
Worst FeaturesCup-holders & ac controls could be closer to driver & passengers. Running boards s\b standard vs. optional (ingress/egress difficult for anyone under 5'). Plenty leg room throughout, but more cargo space would help (would have gladly payed $1,000 more for 1-2' extended version).
