The Sequoia is a rational but uninspired vehicle. It's roomy and quiet, the powertrain is refined and it has good brakes. The power-retracting rear window is a nice touch, too. But handling is ungainly and the ride quality is not very comfortable. Side- and curtain-airbags were made 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.

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Good acceleration however it is "difficult" to stop as it takes lots of braking pressure."

Anonymous, VA (2006 Toyota Sequoia)

"the vehicle is big and holds our grandchildren very well and in all weather condition it handles well both in the mountains and on the straight aways and because of it power to accerate i don't hafve to worry about my wife or my grand children while they are on the road"

WILLIAM O., NV (2006 Toyota Sequoia)

"In general, the vehicle drives well, but when going up small hills, the cruise control will surge suddenly. I see lots of complaints on-line about this same issue on the Tundra and I would guess the Sequoia has the same cruise control system. I have not discussed this with the dealer, but the people on-line who report it says the dealer claims this is normal operation."

BEVERLY B., OK (2006 Toyota Sequoia)

"This is a very powerful car that can make safe passing situations easy. At the same time it still gets better gas mileage, especially on long-haul driving, than I ever expected.This year model has a 4.7 liter V-8 which is as "stingy" on gas as any big car can be."

MICHAEL Q., CO (2006 Toyota Sequoia)


Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"The entertainment system is excellent, the front and rear climate control is excellent as is the ride and the performance on the road. Very quiet cabin, has many nice and useful standard features. I love the way it drives and handles on the open road. I particularly love the heated seats on a cold morning. If I have any complaint it would be the LCD displays for the sound system and the climate control. They ate difficult for me to read, particularly in the daylight. They are back-lit at night a"

"This vehicle has been a wonderful vehicle for us over the last ten years. But it is not a quiet ride. Very roomy and reliable. We've traveled all over the country in this vehicle. I am going to buy another one soon."

JACQUELINE O., SD (2006 Toyota Sequoia)

"This is our long distance travel vehicle and we can go over 4WD roads with confidence if they are not in the "extreme" category. It gets good highway mileage and is steady on the road."

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"Sequoia is going on 11 years old now and never a problem. Plenty of room for hauling our "stuff" and with a kayak on top. Love it!"

LINDA M., FL (2006 Toyota Sequoia)

"Had Sequoia for 10 years. Extremely reliable. Low maintenance costs"

Anonymous, NH (2006 Toyota Sequoia)

"Amazing Value when buying used. However I pride myself in getting good deals from private sellers. Bought the car with 79k on it for 12.5k when it sells for 45k brand new."

GARVIN C., CA (2006 Toyota Sequoia)

"The Toyota has given a decade of service with very few minor repairs. It looks good and is durable. My wife loves the looks, too. We can pile 6 people in in comfort."

RICHARD E., CA (2006 Toyota Sequoia)


How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"the body style is 10 years old and it still looks great"

GARVIN C., CA (2006 Toyota Sequoia)
