According to J.D. Power and Associates Predicted Reliability rating Sequoia gained 8.0 out of 10. The score is based on the past three years quality and dependability data from J.D. Power's automotive studies, specifically the Vehicle Dependability Study (VDS) and the Initial Quality Study (IQS). The 2011 Toyota Sequoia comes with a 36-month/36,000-mile basic warranty. A 60-month/60,000-mile powertrain warranty is also standard.
Even if the industry is showing overall improvements in reliability, J.D. Power outlines that automakers register various problems with electronic features such as audio, entertainment and navigation systems, as well as with newly introduced safety features.
