2008 Toyota Sequoia Limited 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


We traded our 2002 Suburban for the Sequoia in Jan., 2008. With three kids and three dogs, we loved the automatic third row and hatch. It drives and parks like a dream. Within 6 months, tho, the a/c smelled like mildew. After four LENGTHY visits to the dealership who found mildew on the filter, multiple calls to Toyota (we purchased the extended warranty), we are extremely dissatisfied with the "customer service." There is a constant clicking noise under the cage, the hatch does not close all the way, and the dealer could not solve any of the problems. The navigational system cuts off when driving so passengers cannot enter the info. Our TomTom is more well designed.

Best Features

Fun to drive; comfortable seats, good lumbar support, easy to park, great pick-up, lousy gas mileage (worse than Suburban). Not as luxurious as the Infiniti or Lexus, but more so than the Honda Pilot & Suburban,

Worst Features

Revamp the navigational system so that at least a passenger can operate it. Offer a softer shade of white or prettier colors. Research the dealership if you decide to purchase this vehicle and do not purchase the extended warranty. It limits who can work on the vehicle regardless of what they say.
