2006 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.7L 8cyl 5A)


Review

Having a short attention span, I have been through a number of SUVs including a 02 Pathfinder, 03 Sequoia, 02 BMW X5 V8, 02 4Runner, 04 CR-V to name a few. This 06 seems to be the best mix for the price. My primary gripes are headroom on ingress, climate control knobs/buttons, and lack of dark interior option. If I could have had a scaled-down Sequoia, that would have been perfect. The V8 in this intermediate is a true luxury. I love the throttle response. Many complain that it is too responsive, but being primarily a sports car guy, it is a welcome attribute. I wanted a masculine SUV that had a livable nature and that is what I got.


Best Features

Throttle response, masculine appearance, and obvious build quality.


Worst Features

Change the climate controls to knobs to those on the Sequoia, Make the dark interior only available on the Sport Edition available on all trim levels, Increase the entry headroom slightly, Clean up the appearance of the trailer hitch (make only the receiver visible).

2006 Toyota 4Runner SR5 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Great acceleration with the V6. You definitely have all the power you need. Handles turns at extraordinarily high speeds. The suspension is a little bumpy but much smoother than earlier models. There is a bit of outside noise factor. Great sound system. Back seat passangers are very comfortable with their own climate control and plenty of leg room. City MPG run lower than advertised but on the open highway they run much higher than advertised. Overall it is a fun safe car to drive.


Best Features

4x on the fly, the auto climate control feature and the sound system.


Worst Features

The window controls are in a very awkward position on the door panel. They are too low and very hard to get at. This needs to be redesigned.

I just bought this car and I'm very satisfied with it. I'm still in the process of breaking in the car, but it's still a plesaure to drive it. Just feathering the gas makes the car accelerate quickly.


Best Features

Standard mp3 player, ability to roll the back window, standard keyless entry. it's so convenient.


Worst Features

More cargo room and thrid row seats to fold down.

Review

Had a Highlander ,and was impressed. Thought I'd try something a little larger and found the 4- Runner to be just the right fit. Very roomy and the power to boot in a V-6. Now that gas has gone down it is very good on the pocket.Overall very pleased with the vehicle.


Best Features

All of it -so far .
