2005 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
We selected the 4Runner based on headroom, oh well, it fooled me. The driver's side is vertically adjustable and during the test drive it seemed to be just marginal. I'm not real big but at 6'1" after purchasing the vehicle for my wife I found that the passenger's seat is too restrictive to bring my head along for the ride unless the seat is reclined. With the unconventional layout of the controls as an occasional user I find myself stopping on the side of the road to find things. Fuel economy is marginal at best when the cost of premium is factored (didn't know that at time of purchase). It gets really bad when towing, at 8 mpg towing 4000 lbs that about 30% more expensive than my club cab 5.9L Ram.
Set the passenger's seat lower to accommodate most people. More torque for towing and better fuel economy. Design dash and other controls to be user friendly.
