2002 Toyota Sequoia SUV Limited 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Purchase the suv with 69,000 miles. My wife had been on me about one so I got it for her. First the rear window motor went out. The reason I purchased it Edmunds had such good ratings and it's a Toyota. Now at 82,000 miles my transmission went out while my wife were driving it. (@ 82,000 miles) I will never buy another Toyota. Very disappointed.


Best Features

Folding mirrors, sound system, room.

Review

My Sequoia has been a delight from the very first day. My friends assumed from the look, feel and ride of it, that it was new. I certainly didn't correct them!! On highway trips, it rides like cloud. In town, it handles and responds very well. The gas mileage is the single issue I have with it. I average approximately 16 mpg. Wish it were 21 or more. Love it anyway!


Best Features

Seat comfort. The amazing ride. Ginormous second seat.


Worst Features

Move the seat heater buttons. I turn them on accidentally all the time. That's not too spiffy on a hot July day in Texas...

Review

Lift gate window motor went out right after warranty expired, 3 years old, I've replaced all the interior door handles because they broke off ($100 a pop), constant brake problems, $500 avg price to fix every time the rotors have to be machined and brake pads changed, which is about once a year. I've spent about $4000 in repairs due to poor build.


Worst Features

Bury 3rd row in floor, fix the problems with the door handles.

Review

Bought new in 2002 and now have 110K miles on vehicle with little problems. After 2 years, rear window got REAL sluggish, so we left it up for a year afraid it would break. Toyota told us they had replaced a lot of motors. Waited one year, did nothing, works fine now. Too big to really go brush busting but wife likes it. I prefer my 1985 Land Cruiser. Parking brake stinks and truck lurchs forward after applying brake on slight incline. 3 weeks after brake service can drive 55 mph with parking brake on before realizing it's on. Sister bought an 06, no parking brake problem. Mileage improved after 100K. Now we get 16.6 mpg in Georgia. Only get 6 mpg pulling 3500 pound boat though.


Best Features

Removable seats, storage capacity.


Worst Features

Better parking brake - appears to be fixed in newer models. Manual windows. More ground clearance for off road. Why pay cost of FJ Cruiser when you can get the Sequoia for about the same. Too plush to be off road vehicle and is better suited for highways.
