So far so good

2005 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Very nice ride with good handling, acceleration, comfort, smooth ride for body on frame solid rear axle vehicle. Won't let you forget its a truck, but that's what I bought it for. A little too much "gear picking" with v6 on steep grades. Engine has slight ticking sound (most Toyotas seem too, but disconcerting, probably timing chain instead of belt causes this) which is bothersome but engine runs fine. Have no real gripes, purchased the vehicle with just >30k miles and it feels like the brand new '07 model I test drove. I expect many more years out of this vehicle, although maintenance looks to be expensive. Wish v6 models had an external tranny cooler at least offered as an option.
Lots of complexity in electric systems for engine/trans. Poor fuel economy (those reviewers who get 24 mpg highway must be doing something I won't, like drive 50 mph!). Rear glass only goes down with fob remote.
