Well Trash My Ride
Don't need a P/U, and the Sequoia is overkill for a 21, IMO. Test drove one having had a Gen 1 and didn't care for it. My buddy tows a 26' Evolution with his.
I agree with Catchlight that a lease return is probably a safe bet when looking at used as there are pretty good penalties for high miles and abuse. Previous daily rentals are a different story. We were fortunate to find a two year old Yukon with good options & 19K miles that was a trade in from a local original owner who bought it from same dealership. We have 46K on it now 16 months later with no problems. For us it is the perfect tow vehicle- lot of room in the back, very quiet/comfortable- heated seats/ steering wheel...."it eats UP the road".
GM has built some crap in the past- no doubt, and the Japanese forced US automakers to build better cars- which they are doing.
Now would probably be a good time to buy VW stock given people's short memory over the gas pedal sticking issue seems to have been completely forgotten. My '13 Highlander I traded for the Yukon didn't have floor mats so I didn't have to worry
It does have electric steering though and was constantly worried about getting hacked into a semi
Have a friend with a 5 year old Toyota Sienna who just shelled out $1,000 for a new rack & pinion. My son's 2004 Highlander's steering felt a little "clickish" too at low speed. Our '01 Avalon still rides great- see no reason to trade it anytime soon.
Bottom line- you can go to a website like this one: CarComplaints.com | Car Problems, Car Complaints, & Repair/Recall Information
and look up trash on any make & model. Interestingly the '13 Yukon had zero complaints.
