I have always been a Toyota fan. I still am. This vehicle just didn't measure up. By the time I had 100K on it things were literally falling apart. The engine has been no problem to 150K. But the brakes are a Joke. They thump about 2K after having them done. I have had them done about 12 times. The tranny signed off at 105K and the ball joints and front end were all done at 115K. It did get a solid 20 MPG and the seats never wore or tore so I guess not all bad. My last 4 Runner got retired at 280K original tranny and ball joints. Oh yeah, I had the brakes done about 5 times and they never ever thumped!
Outside Temp and navigation system. Nice.
Brakes that work and components with higher quality. Make a rear hatch that doesn't rust as easily as this one. The plate cavity holds water and salt and rusts out the surrounding metal. I wouldn't buy another one any time soon.
