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


I really disliked the idea of going
back into another large SUV. I am so
glad I did! I cross-shopped this with
an Expedition, F150 Supercrew, Titan,
Tundra, Pathfinder, Armada.The Sequoia
was hands down the nicest driving. Its
smooth as a Lexus (for a truck) and is
not fluffed up or affected by gross
depreciation like a Ford the minute
its driven off the lot. Ford offered
$3000 more for my trade and $2500
under invoice, but even with the
higher price of the Toyota, it was
clear which would be worth more in 6
months. The Toyota dealership was
nothing special. Felt as though they
really didn't try to sell the car. I
had to really work at getting the
price I wanted.Did not see the value
in LIMITED model.

Best Features

Handling and overall smoothness. Rear power window and large sunroof. Resale value. The newly added bigger engine for 2005's. Church quiet on the highway. Auto a/c is effective and works both the front AND rear off the same control!

Worst Features

Seats could be slightly better.Should have an alarm system at this price. JBL stereo does not have enough power to be heard when windows are down. A fold flat second row seat or make them removable like the 3rd row. Add rear park assist. Why do car companies continue to use odd-ball tire sizes?
