Toyota Quality, What an Urban Myth!
By sampsonlab on
2004 Toyota 4Runner Limited 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 4A)
All four brake rotors warped at 22K. The windshield pops like a bowl of Rice Krispies in the winter. The flimsy chain that pulls the sunroof broke at 14 months. Dealer sent car to an upholstery shop to remove entire roof liner and all 8 pillar trims to repair. Power door lock broke. Main air bag computer fried and we had no airbags for a 900 mile planned trip. Seat belt latch hit door upholstery and door panel split open like a cheap piece of oil cloth. Cargo tie-down buttons fell out of side panels in rear. When replaced, they fit loose, hold no weight, and rattle. Rear window washer/wiper quit working. Paint finish does not hold wax. Leather seat split.
None. Thank goodness I bought a 6 year extended warranty. The repairs in the first 3 years have exceeded the warranty cost.
