2008 Toyota Sequoia Platinum 4dr SUV (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
Owned a '97 4 runner and was extremely pleased, but needed something bigger to carry family to and from AAU Girls National basketball tournaments. Looked at all the competition and frankly they were no match for the Sequoia, in my opinion. The interior design and comfort is far superior to all the others especially in the rear seating area. The buckets in the second row are fully adjustable and also recline which made it great for the rear passengers. Not difficult to handle around town and it's performance is well, outstanding. Recent long trip,passengers were very comfortable. Gas mileage low, but not why most will buy this vehicle. The Platinum has all the goodies,add entertainment system
Love seating arrangement and comfort. Power seats throughout including third row. Three zone A/C is great. Nav system wonderful once you figure it out. Rear camera helps with parking.Turning radius wonderful for such a large vehicle. Auto load leveling, iPod connection and tons of storage places.
Front sensor for distance system. Currently it only has corner sensors. Hard to know when you are really close to something directly in front. Be able to change destination while in motion as long as passenger seat is occupied. To stop and reprogram is just way too inconvenient. Larger wheel option.
