The Sequoia is a rational, reliable, but uninspired vehicle. It's roomy and quiet, the powertrain is refined, and it has good brakes. A power-retracting rear window is a nice touch, too. But handling is ungainly, and the ride is not very comfortable. Side- and curtain-air bags are standard beginning with the 2007 model year.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

What Owners Say

“I can't find brakes for the front end that will not stop pulsating. I even bought very popular and guaranteed rotors and pads. I will have to examine these parts again and possibly replace.”

RONALD R., TX (2001 Toyota Sequoia)

“Drives and handles unbelievably well for a 4WD. Any new passengers in this SUV can't believe the comfort as well as the ride and acceleration, etc.”

JOSEPH M., AR (2001 Toyota Sequoia)

“The Sequoia came standard with the 4.7l V-8 and it accelerates wonderfully even when it's loaded. It will tow fairly well, but that isn't the most compelling performance factor. This may be due to the smaller block of the V-8. No complaints though when were loaded with vacation gear and the family and head for the hills. It takes them with ease and confidence.”

ADRIAN M., TX (2001 Toyota Sequoia)

What Owners Say

“Its been a long time since we purchased, but feel that we got very good deal on the Sequoia. Had well under 20,000 miles when we purchased it and have driven it trouble free, except for routine, expected maintenance for over 15 yrs. we bought it in 2001”

JOSEPH M., AR (2001 Toyota Sequoia)

“Extremely reliable over the 14 years we've owned it. 200,000 miles plus & other than changing the timing belt twice no major expense. Service at the dealers is expensive. I use an independent guy. Much more reasonable.”

Anonymous, PA (2001 Toyota Sequoia)

“I bought the Sequoia used just before it turned ten years old and it had around 50,000 miles on it. I paid a really fair price for it and for the power and room it offers, it is incomparable to anything else. Coupled with outstanding reliability, it has been an amazing value in my mind. Easily the best vehicle I've ever purchased.”

ADRIAN M., TX (2001 Toyota Sequoia)

“230,000 miles and drives like a new vehicle. Replaced valve cover gaskets & lower ball joints at 230,000 miles. All struts @ 190,000 miles. These and all other expenses have been normal maintenance.”

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
