Editor's Overview

The 2018 Toyota Sequoia is the company's biggest SUV, with 3-row seating and a new suite of standard driver-assist features including pre-collision warning and automatic braking. While the Sequoia's 7,400-pound tow rating falls short of its competitors, we think it will work for most family hauling needs. The Sequoia's ability to venture off-road is another bonus.

Great safety features are included in my particular model. It has the side view blind spot detection which is great as that helps if you want to change lanes and might not necessarily see a car if it's sitting in your blind spot!

Love that my Toyota Sequoia can fit 7 people. We have captain's seats in the middle row so only can seat 7 people instead of 8. Love that my rear seats are split and fold down as needed. I leave both down so have much more space when I go grocery shopping especially if I make a Costco run. Love that it has built in navigation. Still getting used to the voice command but sometimes it doesn't recognize what I'm saying so that can be a bit annoying. Overall very pleased with this car so far!

I really love the sequoia! We have a family of 5 and my kids are getting bigger. It seats everyone comfortably. I was worried driving a larger vehicle that it would be hard to park and get in or out of places, but the steering capabilities on this SUV are incredible! It is so easy to drive and park everywhere. It is so sporty looking too which I love. The trunk space fits groceries and soccer gear perfect.ly even with the 3rd row up! Best car purchase we have ever made!

I love my new Toyota sequoia. It has many features that make it a great family car. The safety features alone sold us! Some of my favorite safety features include the rear view mirrors, the back up camera, lane detection, and sudden break. The sequoia also has a cue that signals when you should take a break from driving.

Air Bags Oct 3, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 3, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V685000
Summary:
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Toyota Tundra and Sequoia vehicles and 2019 Toyota Avalon and Avalon Hybrid vehicles. The air bag electronic control unit (ECU) may erroneously detect a fault during the vehicle start-up self check. If this occurs, the ECU may not deploy the airbags as intended, in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection," and 214, "Side Impact Protection."
Consequence:
If the air bags do not deploy as intended, it can increase the risk of injury in a crash.
Remedy:
Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the air bag ECU, free of charge. The recall began October 26, 2018. Owners may contact Toyota customer service at 1-888-270-9371. Toyota's number for this recall is J0X.
