"Reliable, Tuff, Military grade motor and transmission. This is the truck you want when things get rough. Easy to maintain and built to do a half million miles. Only real flaws are Toyota leather which is way to thin, but if you keep it treated won't fade too bad. I love this vehicle, I have a bmw 740 and this vehicle is far superior. I have an Acura Mdx and can't hold the Sequoia's jock strap. True fan of Toyota. Their cars aren't sexy, but they just don't break!"
Cons: "Gas Hog, tires are expensive, expensive to fix"

"I have owned a Sequoia Limited for ten years. I have taken this truck on rough back roads in the PA State Game Lands and had no trouble going up steep hills with small boulders and running water...It was intense, but this truck never flinched! It said, "No Problem!" It laughs at snow. I have ripped through two feet on winding forest roads with no doubts.
Then there's the heated leather seats for the wife (and me) on those -10 winter days. The interior room is awesome, I have four kids and a big dog; we all fit with lots of gear on the roof.
I have had minimal repairs. The biggest was the master cylinder, but I do put this truck through a workout.
Its worth the price if you can fork over the big bucks, but an SR5 has many of the same gear. I'm still driving this 2005 for a while, until I can get the money together for a new Sequoia!"
"I purchased the 2 WD Sequoia brand new in 2003 in California. Then moved to Midwest 3 years later. This has been worth the money. It is still going strong and we haven't had to put much money into it. A computer part associated with the tracking went out 4 years after owning it, paid for it to be replaced (not cheap $1500) but then a recall occurred. I called Toyota and they walked me through the steps to claim my reimbursement. Completed the forms and had a check within 6 weeks. We did purchase snow tires and it gets around good considering we live on a country road. Would definitely purchase another Toyota without a doubt."
"I purchased my 2001 Sequoia brand new in 2001 and the reliability cannot be matched with any comparable SUV. In over 14 yrs of reliability the only issues I have had is rear tailgate window inoperable (fixed in the past), tailgate handle inoperable(fixed twice in the past), knob for a/c replaced, and pcv device replaced in the past. Besides dependability I still get stares on how good it still looks. Currently my daughter is driving it because she like it better than driving her corolla."
"Best truck I've ever owned. It fits my family of 5 and 2 dogs perfectly. We took many long distance trip with this vehicle. Everyone was alway comfortable. The rear power window was a plus for the dogs. You can move all the seats in various positions. My truck is 11 years old and I have 180,000 Miles. What more can I ask for!
Want a new model with better gas milage."
