Nice SUV with some SERIOUS flaws.
By feckman on


2011 Toyota Sequoia Platinum 4dr SUV 4WD (5.7L 8cyl 6A)


We recently purchased a 2011 Toyota Sequoia. It would be a great car but for the fact that many of the most important functions of the navigation system, radio, media system, etc. are *completely inaccessible* while the car is in motion!

Clearly this is an issue of liability fears trumping usability or reason.
Regardless, we would not have purchased the car had we known how difficult it would be to use.

How a car maker thinks it is okay to tell me how to use the functions of an automobile I purchased is beyond me. Letting lawyers run a company is worse than letting inmates run an asylum.

It's too bad, because it has all the makings of a great car. Instead it's more like a nagging lawyer.

Best Features

Interior space, power, towing capacity, styling, fit and finish.

Worst Features

Get rid of "granny mode!!!"

There are several systems out there to "unlock" the features in the Nav System. Just do a google search for "jailbraking" or "unlocking" the sequoia system and you'll find some good options.
