Purchased 4Runner used (w/ 75K miles) from a dealership with high expectations regarding the quality and realibity of a Toyota. At 146K the Transmission went out which is not much better than the Ford Taurus we owned. The cost to replace the Transmission was $4500, OUCH! We decided to rebuild instead which cost around $1800.
Great looking suv from the outside. Wife likes being up higher than the other cars for visibility.
Design a transmission that will live up to the reputation of a Toyota. Move the cup holders so they don't block most of the instrumentaion.
