2008 Toyota Sequoia Platinum 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 6A)

Review

I needed a full size SUV that had trailer towing capacity that gave me room to play when towing a boat. I have had Toyotas in the past and though always scant on creature comforts have been extremely well made and reliable. My last clocked in at 450,000 km and only died due to an accident. Issues IPOD connectivity useless to non existent. Don't bother with the Toyota cable. Navigation package useless. Very error laden, extremely user unfriendly, better to buy an aftermarket system. A 150$ garmin will outperform the Toyota navigation. Gas cap has no lock. Oil changes, uses a cartridge filter that few aftermarket dealers have. Dealers even hate doing changes.

Best Features

Engine power- power to spare hauling 6000 lbs. Comfort; great seats, views good comfortable ride, plenty of adjustability for trailer towing. Turning radius - beats any other vehicle in its size class. Quiet ride, low noise at highway speed.

Worst Features

By far the worst problem is the navigation/bluetooth system. The maps are years out of date. 2008 DVD with maps from NAVTEQ dated 2003!. Navigation lock out while in motion. You must stop to use it as the voice commands often won't read properly. Can't even find a gas station while in motion.
