2 4Runners in the Family

I can not believe I purchased another 4Runner. I did a bit of research beforehand to check out some other brands such as the Chevy Equinox and Ford escape. We needed to get a new car as our Grand Prix was becoming a little un reliable. The consumer reviews research showed a number of issues I just want to stay away from. If one just counts the percentage of satisfied 4runner owners it out measures just about all other SUVs. That is very useful in itself. I have owned a 2006 4Runner Limited V8 since 2010 and all I can say this is one awesome vehicle. The drive feels solid and comfortable with more than ample power. So far the only thing I had to do was to replace a front wheel bearing, (strange part to replace, no reviews on this as far as I know) But other than that it has been a great ride. So, when it came time to replace our 2001 GM I did a little research and found there was no crossover or other Midsize SUV more dependable and tough as the 4Runner. So I bought another 2006 (this time the sport package). We just got it and I like it just as much (fewer bells and whistles) but that's OK, At least I know my wife and kids will stand a better chance in a fender bender, plus it will take on our Toronto winters with no problem. I think this truck will serve us well and I recommend it to anyone looking for a safe dependable SUV

Awesome 4X4 on-road and off-road

After three years and 56k miles, I have had no problems at all. The V-8 engine has average 17.4 mpg for the life of the vehicle, which includes both city and highway driving, some off-road, and some trailering. It tows 1,500 lbs. with ease, AC is cold as the actic, and only problems have been battery replaced (at the 3 yr. anniversary). Highly recommended.

Oldie But Still A Goodie!

I bought my 06 4Runner in Sept of 2010 and have had it for about a year and a half and have had ZERO problems with it. It's built as solid as a tank and it's my daily driver so I can honestly say it's got turn-the-key and go reliability. The only complaint would have to be that you just can't find these on dealer lots as they get snatched up quickly. If you're looking for a very reliable, roomy and stylish mid-size SUV you can't go wrong with a 2006 4Runner.

Just bought a new 4runner limited in May and it is the best vehicle I have ever driven. Great power, good handling and very comfortable inside. Also, I have been actually getting 22mpg which was on the high side of what the manufacturer predicted. All in all this is a great ride and I would recommend it to everyone.

What a pleasure the current Toyota 4-Runner is to own and drive. In addition to Lexus Like levels of comfort, quietness and refinement it is a true Truck based rugged SUV that will tackle steep mountain passes and trips down main street with equal competence. My wife and I are thrilled that we chose this 7 passenger SUV over the honda Pilot.

I feel very proud to own this vehicle. It is the best I 've ever had. I love everything about it, especially the power once I push on the gas pedal on highway. All the other cars stay behind and get smaller as I go. It's a great feeling, knowing that I have something that's built strong and I know it will last a long time. It has plenty of room, the brakes are excellent, and the overall appearance is great.
