With all the sheetmetal and automotive heft surrounding you in the 2008 Toyota Sequoia, you would expect to be well protected in an accident. Those expectations are met in this Toyota; 2008’s Sequoia gets good crash test ratings and an excellent assortment of safety features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
