I traded my 2004 Sequoia in for this 2008 Limited 4WD and so far really like the 2008. In town and interstate driving I average 15mpg. I love the six speed on the console and down shift alot to save brakes and it is very simple to do. The 381HP is smooth and more than enough power. The transmission is very smooth shifting. I liked my 2004 so much I was a little hesitant to trade, but I wouldn't go back now that I have had this 2008 for three weeks. Room out the kazoo. The turning radius is great, three foot less than my 2004.
The navigation system is great, pretty easy to use also. Blue tooth is nice. The ride is quiet. I'm amazed how much I use the electric rear hatch as opposed to manual useage.
I wish they still had the fold and tumble seats for storage purposes, but I guess no vehicle is perfect.
