The Sequoia was one of the first SUV's I looked at. I really liked how I felt in it, as well as the look of the dashboard with all its gauges. I test drove it right after the Highlander.
Unfortunately, when I drove the Sequoia, the salesman said it needed gas and had me stop at a real busy station where cars were coming in every which way. I had to back out and move around the other cars and I felt like I was driving a tank. I was so afraid that I would hit something that when I got back to the dealer, I crossed the Sequoia off my list. Even standing next to it I felt so small. That too bad as I really liked sitting in it. Even the seats were gray, which was the interior color of choice for me.
Whats interesting is I looked at the RX300, the ML320, the Qx4, the Envoy and Bravada, before I even considered the MDX (because it seemed too high priced and no one had one to even look at. Once I finally tried the MDX, I was sold.
The Sequoia is a nice SUV, but not in the size category as the above ones and the MDX.
