2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I looked at every SUV in the $35-$45k range. This had it all by far. The quality starts the moment you open and shut the door. It's just built better than the others I looked at.


Best Features

The seats and their ease of use. We have three kids and getting them in and out is a brease. I also like the looks, style, and power of the Sequoia.


Worst Features

None that I can think of right now. I'll chime back in a year or so if anything comes up.

2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

I traded in my Land Cruiser for this. Not quite as plush on the inside ($15000 cheaper) but well worth what I paid. Compared this vehicle to many more in it's class but had to stay with Toyota. There are none that can match the dependability nor build class.


Best Features

Size, exterior design, and JBL 6 disc changer


Worst Features

Location of A/C controls

2005 Toyota Sequoia SR5 Rwd 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Like it overall. the jury is still out on the transmission. I question the shift patterns. But the dealer says there's not a problem. But overall it is all i expected my first SUV to be.


Best Features

The size, I am 6'7" and it fits me.


Worst Features

Would like to see the gear selector on the floor instead of the column. Also would like the option of not getting the third row of seats. Only two in the family and the third row was not necessary in my case.

Vehicle

2005 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The Sequoia is the best overall large SUV out there. It has a great engine, large cabin and the rear window that retracts all the way down is a huge plus for carrying long items. The mileage isn't great but it is better then expected for such a large vehicle. The Navigation and DVD system are not up to par with the Acura system. The DVD needs to be controlled with a remote control and you can only enter an address in the Nav system when in Park. Small complaints for an overall great truck.


Best Features

Great 4wd system. Very large and comfortable in all rows. Room behind 3rd row is decent and with the 3rd row flipped even more space. Easy to remove 3rd row seats. Strong engine.


Worst Features

More intuitive Nav system. DVD should be able to be fully controlled by the in dash system. Mats are flimsy and don't protect the entire carpet - Catch-All mats are a good option for all rows and the rear.
