2010 Toyota Sequoia Platinum 4dr SUV (5.7L 8cyl 6A)
I traded in my 2011 Honda Pilot (yes, a 2011) for a slightly used 2010 Sequioa Platinum.
I did this mostly for the towing capacity, but I also love the styling of the Sequioa.
Despite loving the overall SUV, I will list the cons to consider if you don't need the towing capacity:
- Seat layout.
Platinum captain seating in back is silly and inconvenient.
- Nav/Audio: overly complex touchscreen interface.
For example, to change stations to next preset (without using the steering wheel controls), you have to switch to "audio" mode.
- Handling: while good for a 3 ton truck, its still shaky at speeds and subject to wind.
If you need a luxury tank, buy this.
Size and towing capacity.
Styling is beautiful (get a lot of looks driving down the road).
Unique - there aren't a lot of these on the road compared to other comparable SUV's.
Gizmos galore - more bells and whistles than you will ever need.
Second row seats - layout is silly and inconvenient.
Nav/Audio interface: touchscreen is good, but overly complex.
Suggestion to Toyota: add preset radio channel buttons!
Storage behind 3rd row: my much smaller Pilot was about as big!
