Overall, we love our Sequoia!

2001 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


In 2 years of ownership, we have had no major problems. It carries our family of 5 plus a ton of luggage w/o breaking a sweat. We love the huge moonroof, the 6 CD in-dash changer, the power of the 4.7 L V-8. We have taken it down dusty desert trails to visit ghost towns and up mountain paths w/o so much as a hiccup. There are a few gripes, however - the tail gate refused to open not long after we bought it and we could hear broken parts rattling around inside. The transmission sometimes clunks when we're at a stoplight and it feels like we've been bumped from behind. Both rear passenger doors refuse to stay open on even the slightest incline, and the rear cubby hatch cover pops open.

Best Features

After 160,000 miles, the engine is as smooth and tight as the day it left the factory - no leaks, drips, or oil consumption. Accommodates the whole family + luggage comfortably. Goes anywhere (mountains, desert, snowy roads) with ease. MPG is reasonable when you consider all it can haul.

Worst Features

Improve tailgate, passenger door, and storage hatch cover design.
