Great road trip vehicle
By Will on


2002 Toyota Sequoia SR5 2WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Sequoia is great for road trips, can hold lots of stuff, mechanically hasn't left me stranded. Best light duty off road ride of any SUV I've ridden. However, it is a pig to drive in town, the exhaust manifold noise, I swear gets louder every day, and this is even after I had the "Tundra" factory recall performed on my Sequoia exhaust manifold. The vehicle has never had better than 15.5 mpg avg. Interior is falling apart (like a 90s era GM). Color keyed exterior plastics, like mirrors and spoilers have shedded their clear coat (like all 4yr old Korean cars). Stereo bad. Rear window on lift gate is stuck up, even after warranty repair. A/C clutch went out 92k mi. Resale value is terrible!

Best Features

Ride is fantastic, but shocks seem to be fading fast, ride deteriorating at 90k mi. Never left me stranded. Roof rails can hold mega loads.
