2011 Toyota Sequoia SUV Limited 4dr SUV (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Owned 2 Suburbans before this, won't buy anything else now. We weren't 4 blocks away from the dealership on the test drive and my wife said "this is what i want to drive". Much better vehicle to drive than a Suburban, rides better, quieter, handles better and the turning radius is 10x better than even a Tahoe. We pull a 5,000 lb boat with it and it doesn't even break a sweat. The engine and brakes are unbelievable! Inside everything is very functional and well thought out. Seating is very flexible, I have to say that the 2nd row has at least 6-8" more knee room than a Suburban. Plus the 2nd row slides forward to allow for more knee room in the 3rd row which is really nice.


Favorite Features

The engine and 6 speed transmission are great, very smooth and quiet and power to spare. Turning radius is unbelievable, like driving a small car. Storage compartments everywhere you look. A small thing but something the kids love is the pull up sunshades in the 2nd and 3rd row windows, really makes it easy to watch a movie or play games. The 3rd row seats are powered so they are super easy to lay down. Also, we have the 2nd row bench, which is 3 different seats - all recline plus the 3rd row is in two sections and both of them recline as well. We had our Sequoia now for a year and a half with 26,000 miles on it and it has been flawless. Super functional for a family of four on the go!!!


Suggested Improvements

As I mentioned, owned the Sequoia for a year and a half and I'm not sure I can come up with alot for this section. Overall great vehicle.

2011 Toyota Sequoia SUV Limited 4dr SUV (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


Review

Our first Sequoia after 12 years with 2 expeditions. Very pleased so far. Believe the platinum is way overpriced when you compare the few extra options you get. We bought a limited with options of navigation and woodgrain interior on the dash ("molded dash applique"). Have to have the fold flat 3rd row, so that excludes GM, and this time decided to spend a little more to get a better quality interior (one of only a few complaints we had with the expedition). Hoping to have better resale value as well. We have been very pleased with the luxury feel of the interior and smooth ride. We did buy our LTD in another state and had it shipped. LTDs are hard to find/nonexistent in some areas.


Favorite Features

2nd row has tons of room, fold flat 3rd row seats with press of a button, automatic lift gate, bluetooth (so easy to use and how did I ever live without it?), huge storage console between front seats, ability to reprogram certain features - for instance now can unlock all doors with one touch of the key fob button instead of two, quality leather on seats, backup camera, and sonar sensors on the front and back (never had them on the front corners before), tight steering/turning, parking is easier than you would think with this big of a vehicle.


Suggested Improvements

Being able to open liftglass from the rear of the vehicle without having to use the key, kids can't see the clock (where it's positioned on the dash) from the 2nd row seat, it is far to reach controls on far side of the navigation screen. No big complaints on the navigation, but for the price, Toyota should offer periodic updates for the first 2 or 3 years, can't do some navigation features (entering new destinations) while the car is in drive (Though that's a safety feature I guess I understand.)
