Okay, I do not, and have not ever
owned a 4Runner, although I hope to
very soon. I took my spring break
trip to Japan, and had always seen the
reviews on 4Runners complaining about
the cupholder placement. The reason
they put it there is to keep drinks
cold in the hot months by using the AC
to cool it. This is VERY standard in
Japan, nearly all vehicles have this
set up. True, it may make it take
longer to cool the cabin, but who
likes piss-warm drinks in July?
I'm sure many of you realized this
already, but I thought it was
something worth pointing out after
coming back from Japan.
I'm pretty big on buying USA made
products, but those Japanese are above
and beyond us in many things,
especially vehicles and cell phones.
