Pros

Best Vehicle I've ever owned.  $250 in repair costs in 100K miles

Cons

The cons that come with a large 8 passenger full sized truck.  Handles like a big truck, gets poor fuel economy like a big truck.

Great Truck. — This is the best truck I've ever owned. Super reliable, quiet comfortable, plenty of power for towing. Lots of space. The rear seats are the removable type, but in 2005 - that was the norm ($80K Cadillac Escalades had this until 2013!!).

Great Family Car — Great Family Car to get around town. Its nice having a 3 row for 8 passengers. Its even great for long trips. Handles great in all types of weather. This SUV is easy to park and you dont need a step ladder to enter car!

Toyota 'yosemite' Sequioa — I like the looks, towing, SUV feel of an SUV, tailgate power window, accessory items, roof rack, wheel and tires, engine, serviceability. The tailgate latch is weak. Known to have issues. Also the power door lock and speakers are not reliable as they should be.

Happy With The Sequoia — Been looking for about two months and settled on a sequoia with higher miles and better maintenance records. I'm happy to have chosen a 2005 because the gear shift for 4x is not there just push button. Visibility is still ok in the drivers seat. Coasts really well. Mileage can get as good as 23 on the highway and averages 16.5 in town. Quiet cabin

Handling And Power Is Excellent Whether Empty Or With 8 Passengers — The ride is smooth and quiet. When closing any of the doors exceptionally hard, the closing is quiet and solid with no rattles or any other noises. The interior and exterior seams, linings and cosmetics are fitted perfectly and can be experienced by anyone who has a chance to detail the car!!! The seats are very comfortable on long trips and the interior is very roomy . The car is well engineered from top to bottom

Great Utility Vehicle That Can Haul A Family In Comfort By green18t
