Sequoia or Odyssey?


Topic starter

I need a vehicle to commute back and forth to my job every two week, and also haul my four kids in car seats around when I’m home and my wife is at work. I have a Supercab (not crew cab) 2013 F-150 that I’m trying to do an even trade with. I’m looking at a 2005 Toyota Sequoia with 147k miles, and a 2010 Honda Odyssey with 139k. Both are sticker priced at $10,995. I haven’t physically looked at either yet. Just wondering which would be more reliable assuming they’re both in good condition? Only planning to get two years max out of it. Not worried so much about gas mileage at this point.

I would say sequoia if you want something with more power that will run forever and you can pull stuff with but the gas mileage sucks.  Has a ton of room.  I have a 2004 sequoia and love it has 230000 miles on it.  If you get the sequoia the make sure you change the timing belt every 90000 miles don't go over if you can help it.


My sister had an odyssey and it never seemed to have very much power and the engine blew at 150000.  No trailer hitch and lots of electronic stuff that eventually breaks.  


Just depends on what you are looking for.

I was leaning that way, mainly because Toyota’s seem to have a better resale, but now that you mention it, it would be nice to still be able to do truck stuff.
