2004 Toyota Sequoia SUV SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Leg room for driver is an issue if over 6'. Overall this is a quality vehicle. Having driven all other SUVs, this is the winner. Leather is a MUST if you have kids, also if Toyota could put backseat controls for driver to use when kids fall asleep. Great buy!


Best Features

Room, leather, quality.


Worst Features

Backseat controls for driver. The ability to lie seats back without stopping for when kids fall asleep.

2004 Toyota Sequoia SUV Limited Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

We have owned this SUV for a little less than a year and it is our first Toyota. We are really impressed with Toyota quality. The interior is not quite as plush and "fancy" as some, but I think it dominates in every other category. We bought this vehicle certified used with a bumper to bumper 7 year 100,000 mile warranty. I doubt we will need it though.


Best Features

The roll down rear window is a really nice feature not found elsewhere and I like the exterior style of the Sequoia. It also handles and drives extremely well for an SUV.


Worst Features

Design the interior with a bit more flair and make the bumpers stronger.

2004 Toyota Sequoia SUV SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

After owning both a Suburban and Expedition, I can say this is the best of the breed. The smooth ride, tight control, luxurious interior, and JBL sound system make long trips enjoyable. The heart of a Tundra and the soul of a Lexus. I love it!


Best Features

Numerous power outlets, smooth ride, sound system.


Worst Features

Better gas mileage. 16 MPG city and highway is OK for the class, but these days something around 20 MPG would put the Sequoia at the top.

2004 Toyota Sequoia SUV SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Received 8 miles per gal when tested on hwy. Very poor gas mileage in comparison to what it should be. Style sold us but not very kid friendly. No access to 3rd row seat and no cup holders for 2nd row seat reachable by children. Mostly disappointed with efficiency.


Best Features

Exterior style.


Worst Features

Gas mileage. Cup holders. Accessible access to 3rd row seat.

Review

We purchased a 2002 Grand Cherokee when we started a family and didn't want to go the minivan route. The Cherokee was a nightmare (maintenance, performance, etc.) So, we saw a great deal on a new 2004 Sequoia at the end of 2003 and went for it. We have loved this car (and we aren't really "car" people). We go away a lot for the weekend and it's so easy to just throw stuff in the Sequoia and go. It rides so smoothly and we haven't had any problems with it at all. We added a DVD player b/c it was cheaper to have it done on our own than @ the dealer. My only complaint - it is cumbersome & hard to park sometimes. But - that's a large SUV for you. GREAT SUV!


Best Features

The leather interior, great 6-CD changer, easy to pull out third row seats, lots of console space. About 15 cup holders too! The 3rd row is very comfortable for passengers.


Worst Features

Have the 3rd row fold into the floor. Easier way to have the 2nd row fold to get access to the 3rd row - it's a little difficult to climb back there.
