A good car but less than I expected
By M on


2003 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Overall the sequoia has been reliable and comfortable for long trips. But it's not the Toyota quality I've come to expect. Not just the car but also the dealer service. I bought without looking at other suvs - mistake. Quality issues: - glass breakage sensor has never worked - gear indicator lights (D, N) burned out - rear window has been fixed 2 times - rear door handle broke on a ski trip, making it impossible to open the hatch - OEM tires were awful - causing the car to feel misaligned. Toyota denied issues. Dealer finally admitted others had the same issue. Fixed with a set of duelers. - within the 1st year driver window started sounding like it was going to fall out.

Best Features

Super comfortable especially on long trips. Fits 8 people.

Worst Features

Better quality on high use items - door latches, gear indicator lights. Child seat latch attachments for entire middle row, not just 2 of the seats.
