Disappointing on multiple levels
2023 Toyota Sequoia Capstone 4dr SUV 4WD (3.5L 6cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 10A)
Some of this review is specific to the car, and some if it is a result of the buying experience. But obviously they go hand in hand. In normal times, we would have had the ability to inspect and test drive the vehicles we were interested in. But these are not normal times, and the manufacturers and dealers are happy to take advantage of that. Our experience with the 2023 Toyota … Sequoia Capstone is not a positive one and therefore, fair or not, Toyota has lost a customer for life. My wife and I wanted another full size SUV. We are just coming off a lease of a 2020 Expedition and were looking for a little better fuel economy. Our choices were narrowed to a 2023 Tahoe diesel and the Sequoia hybrid. Neither was available to look at or test drive. Both required refundable deposits, both carried month's long lead times. After 3 months our Sequoia arrived. After paying full MSRP we took delivery on a frigid evening just before closing in the parking lot of our local dealer. Taking our time to test drive and inspect the vehicle was not possible. Initial impression of the vehicle was, "why is it so loud? The Expedition wasn't this loud." Oh well. Several days after taking ownership, we go to get groceries and this is where the shock occurs. There is literally no space in the rear of this vehicle. After flopping the rear seats forward, we are left with 3 separate tiers of space about 6" wide to set our groceries. A small shelf at the rear, some unexplainable second tier shelf, and then the backs of the folded seats themselves. The grocery bags are falling all over, there is literally no where to set them. This is in the back of a full size SUV. The following day we are attempting to return 2 chairs to the store. Neither will fit. Not even one, let alone both. Instead we return them both in the back of our mid-sized crossover. It is inexcusable that a full size SUV is unable to hall groceries, or a couple of chairs, or a couple suitcases. The marketing line for this car should be "A full size SUV with the space of a crossover". The mileage is barely better than that of the Expedition. The engine noise is artificially loud and obnoxious. Everything about the car is clunky and unrefined. I have owned many new cars in my life including two Suburbans, two Pilots, an earlier Sequoia, an Expedition and a Toureg. This is by far the worst designed car I have ever owned. Save your money, this offering from Toyota is a complete swing and a miss.
