For a full size SUV it's features are hard to beat

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