The Toyota Sequoia is impressive off-road, and has the ability to tow heavy trailers. But it can't escape all of the disadvantages of a big SUV.

      Do you need such a large SUV? Well I don't but I still got it because I love how it drives and how big and tall it is :)

      Just an FYI, CR is a very liberal organization. They generally hate any big SUV that uses much fuel.

      Show me another SUV that will go strong for over 300,000 miles (on and OFF road) on just routine maintenance, and maybe then I'll give up my Sequoia. Until then, they'll have to pry it from my cold dead fingers!

      BTW, my 2002 Sequoia just turned over 250k. I live way out and I'm in 4wd every day. Best vehicle I've ever owned. If it ever dies (which I doubt) or if I ever get tired of sitting in it, which might happen, I'll just go buy a newer one...

      Have a 2004 Sequoia with 271K miles, I prefer the way it drives over my parents suburban they owned. Plus I have been both a driver and passenger in these and I cannot be more happy that all 3 rows recline. I did a road trip from northwest Oregon to central Arizona and averaged 18mpg so I was happy and surprised. Handles really well in the snow and ice as well, I even bought chains thinking I was going to need them living in the hills and all but I have not needed them yet and I am running highway tires. Having owned many Toyota vehicles I have noticed everything will fall off the vehicles before they stop running.

      Cheers!

      Adjustable break pedal/push button would cure that aforementioned concern.

      I was recently gifted a 2005 Sequoia SR5 with 125000 miles on it and I love it I also agree that this review was not well done and did not due justice to this vehicle. I love the ride and looks and for a vehicle this size is pretty good on gas. It's also a Toyota and you can't due much better than that. It is a beast but gives me a lot of confidence driving it I feel very safe in it.

      What an incredible moron! You don't "pilot" huge SUVs like that. And early intervention of the stability system helps you avoid the ditch on REAL roads. Go back to testing latte enema machines, TOM.

      Just bought my 4th Sequoia, just love these things too much. I have bought and tortured a 2003, 2008, 2012 and now working on a new 2017. Every one has stepped up a notch in every measure. I get a genuine 16-17 mpg combined with my driving, and I push hard on a long daily commute. These things hold value too. With my recent trade-in, ODO registered 101,000 miles, and I took it to CarMax after a good detail. It looked like new. They gave me a cash offer for $21,000, which I took to my dealer as a bargaining chip. To my great satisfaction, they matched the offer. How many vehicles hold almost 50% of their original purchase value after 6 years and 100k miles?

      I have been a Toyota fanatic since I bought a first-gen 4-Runner in 1984. I have ought nothing else since, and have driven many models usually over 150k miles and have been blessed with flawless reliability and awesome equity retention. The Sequoia is a solid value. Pulling a big 8,000 lb toy hauler with ease, racing around like a sports car driver, and just enjoying the big, safe feel of a large, yet nimble SUV. The turning radius is insane tight, and shocks passengers when I whip a u-turn on a residential street with ease. All of my Sequoias have been the Limited models, and the interiors hold up so very well with all the leather. Never a stain or a tear, and with regular cleaning, always looking like new.

      I have ridden in, or rented just about every other SUV in this class at one time or another, and none of them compare favorably to the overall appeal and quality of the Toyota beast. The acceleration has more than surprised some pretty fast cars in short drag races. That 0 to 60 in 7.1 seconds is the real deal. This thing has gobs of power to drive this massive truck to speed. Pulling steep grades barely drops out of 6th gear unless you are trying to accelerate.

      Love my Sequoia(s), and I will continue to buy them. They are incredible machines that have huge cargo spaces and seat an army of adults very comfortably, even for long hauls. This review sucks, and I am here to say this vehicle is just pure gold...

      I just purchased a 2016 Platnium. What I really like is the people in the second row captains chairs are just as comfortable as the people in the front. I am getting 15 - 16 mpg. My main gripe is the front driver seat is too firm for my comfort. Also it would be nice if there were some padding on the door arm rests.

      "7.1 seconds to 60, its faster than a lot of sports cars". Does CR actually test any sports cars? This is not acceptable from an entity reviewing cars as a profession. Also, it seems if the vehicle is not a Camry, CR will have issues with handling and ride. You can't expect a truck to ride/handle like a sedan. And some people need a truck and don't mind the trade-offs. Whats the point of repeatedly bashing the ride and handling of a truck? Finally, I am beginning to question CR's reliability data. In another video Gabe said when compiling their reliability data a Navigation problem is like an engine problem to them. Really?!? If your Navigation goes out, its an annoyance, but you can use your iPhone to get home. If your engine goes out you are stranded, and possibly have to pay a lot of money to fix it. They are NOT equal. Ok, done with my CR bashing :)

      My Sequoia had major engine rebuild at 75k! Reliability is questionable if you use this truck for anything besides grocery shopping or people moving. Highly Doubt your claim it "haul[s]
      a big trailer" as mine died towing a 21' ski boat. Thanks consumer report - you recommend this truck in years past - my year.
